Growing up, Jennifer Szpigiel always had an admiration for confident women. As a young mom walking away from a career in marketing, it became evident that her own lack of confidence was related to body image and the pressures of societal expectations. Finding confidence through her own creativity and some deep healing work, Jennifer was determined to live by example by investing in herself and her dream to help women find their confidence. From a marketing career to a stay at home mom to a successful entrepreneur, Jennifer is a certified health coach, certified life coach, and a business and lifestyle mentor. With the mission to shift the paradigm and eradicate sacrificial living for women, she has created multiple seven figure businesses, memories made all over the world, and a radical responsibility for how she spends her days.
