Attitude changes everything.

Everyone has a different point at which they decide enough is enough. This personal breaking point exists for each situation that pushes us to our limits of physical, mental, spiritual and emotional tolerance. Our personal space is an area where we have boundaries. If someone gets too close to you and makes you feel uncomfortable, you must have a predetermined and established “line” that will force you to act if crossed. This can be a physical line such as when someone gets too close physically, or it can be an invisible mental or emotional “line in the sand.” The important thing for each one of us is to recognize what it is and when someone crosses it. If you have never defined this personal space, you will not know what to do or how to react. Anything that comes inside your predefined area may be perceived as a threat to your personal safety. From simply making you feel uncomfortable to physical assault, it is imperative to help you deal with others on both a personal a...

Fifteen years ago, Jen Coken was faced with a monumental choice — to follow her heart to Colorado or stay in Washington, DC where she had built a successful high-profile consulting business. In a brief conversation with a friend, she chose to move. That one bold action launched her into a lifetime of giving up the familiar and taking a chance on the unknown — of being willing to fail spectacularly. As entrepreurs we are often faced with these kinds of decisions: do we take a chance and be surprised by the ending, or do we hold back in case the whole thing goes down in flames? Using her life experiences, coaching skills and comedic background, Jen will take you on a journey so that you too can dream big, shoot for the stars, and build an epic life.
