With Jen Coffel, CEO of Engaging Speakers, business coach, Best-Selling Author, and Philanthropist who has helped over one thousand entrepreneurs build their businesses, many reaching over 6 and 7 figures in revenue.

Join us for this conversation on motherhood, endurance, grief, philanthropy and business. We discuss the impact that one small change can have on our lives and businesses, the importance of systems, of being open to feedback and solutions and having a solution-oriented mindset. We also walk through Jen’s blueprint that she’s used to build four separate businesses each to over 6 figures all under a year, and it is the blueprint she now uses for helping others build successful six and seven figure businesses.

In Jen’s previous career, she developed the largest team in Illinois for a billion-dollar direct sales company, personally generating over $25 million in sales and raising over $1 million in donations for non-profits. But she is most proud of founding her own international non-profit “Handing Hope” which brings comfort and smiles to children battling cancer in 12 states and 3 countries around the world.

Jen has been mentored by speaking icons like Jack Canfield, Nick Vujicic, and Sandra Yancey, and has spoken on stage to over 10,000 people. She has been featured on Inc.com, ABC News, and the Chicago Tribune.
