In 2019 Jen was further elevated to Vice President of Marketing. She tells about her own upbringing and her working journey from 16 years old, and then the hard trials she had to face on her journey to success. She had a spiritual awakening when she participated in a program called the Hoffman Process, which felt like 10 years of therapy compacted into 6 days and changed her outlook on life. We talk about success and failure and the importance of taking risks, but also the lessons learned along the way in life such as those that failure brings. Failure is an important part of life and shouldn’t always be avoided.
