Testimonials: Self Empowerment & Personal Growth

“I learned more from Jen Mac’s classes about myself and creating the life I want than I have from any therapist or course. Jen is a gifted coach and modern day guru filled with wisdom you wish you learned as a child. She has helped me create an amazing life in the big city and has given me the tools to live with happiness and joy, every day!”

-Ilana Arazie, blogger for Downtown Dharma

 

 

“I have worked with Jen as my personal and professional coach for several years. I never thought that I would be the type of person to benefit from what I considered to be the “new age” nonsense of personal coaching, but I have found it to be tremendously helpful. Having grown up with analytical thought being my shield from the emotional side of life, Jen has been great at teaching me a new vocabulary and style of communication that has really helped me express myself more fully and be more successful in my personal and professional relationships…She also helps you see how to see your life as something you create instead of something that just happens to you, and gives great tips and tricks on how to set goals in a way that makes them more concrete and achievable. I feel like my life is much more fulfilling…..and something that I drive rather than something that drives me. I credit Jen with much of the positive change I’ve been able to make….and I know it’s just going to keep getting better.”

“…I came into your network very lost, guarded, full of false ego, dishonesty and not understanding forgiveness or feeling worthy of happiness. I learned how to love myself from your classes. I had allowed the past to define me which made my perception of myself very grim.

In “Power of Right Now” I started to build myself for the better and learned how to turn the battleship. ”Power of Right Now” gave me the tools to handle life’s dilemmas such as divorce, job loss and career change. How to have gratitude and humility.

In “YOU, INC.” I had discovered self awareness and self empowerment allowing me to grow both personally & professionally. I learned how to design my dream life and make it a reality. I took care of myself in all my affairs. I was able to see who I needed to surround myself with. I was able to enjoy life’s rewards…

In “The Relationship Course” I learned that there was a “U” in “US” and treated my relationships with this as a common theme. I was able to be in a committed relationship and let my guard down and share my life with another person. I was able to get married and realize that one of the roles I truly loved was that of a wife.

“I.A.” allows me to stay connected to this fabulous female network and learn how others solve problems (projects!). I am able to give back in this community and really be available to women who want to always move forward in their life. This class allows us to have a safe place to share our lives and not be judged only helped or guided.

…After working with you I truly feel that my life has improved for the better and things that used to paralyze me no longer do…

A HUGE THANK YOU!!!!!”

“During the time I was taking the ‘Power of Right Now’ course, I was going through some difficult times: an elderly parent, conflict with close family members because of the care required, my own health issues and things not going well at the office. Jen helped me work through all these issues and I am immensely grateful to her for guiding me through these turbulent times……….I made a move to change my job, came up with various strategies (focused thinking, relaxation, meditation) and best of all Jen introduced me and the rest of the class to each other. After several years, we communicate regularly – a network of wonderful women who all know my story, do not judge me and have no preconceptions about who I am ……….even though I have not met a single one of them physically (I had taken the course by correspondence)………this network for me is such a powerful one: women from all walks of life who would never otherwise be connected are now the best and closest group of DIVAS – all because of Jen’s vision, her experience, kindness and help.”

“The way you have helped me so far is somewhat intangible to describe but definite in nature. I have not bought anything, I have not changed my job, the city I live, and I am not married. However I now know myself better, I know how to take care of myself better, and I have experienced love truly during the time we have worked together. I have found increased gratitude, and I can often consciously shift outcomes in situations before they happen with my increased tool set. I can’t thank you enough for this and more.”

“I met Jen at the most transformative time in my life thus far…my first heartbreak and my crossroads to true independence. The heaviness of my early experiences and forced transitions (remember Bosnia in the 90s?) made me despise change, and Jen made me learn how to cope with it, dwell in it, and even love it. To this day, I think she does not know how profound our interactions through The ‘Power of Right Now’ class in August 2008 were for me, but she helped me “flip it upside-down” in the face of change at just the right moment – when I decided I needed to make the most of a big transition; be with the hurt, be with myself, learn, and move on!

Yet, how does one measure the immeasurable? While my internal growth and transformation over the last few years feel slow and subtle, people tell me “you are the most positive person I know!”… or “you look so happy and changed!” Jen’s toolbox, electric presence, and loving energy served as a parachute for a young woman in her 20s, learning how to truly be happy with herself, while embracing uncertainty, and building the life she wants to live – for herself. That’s it: Jen empowered me at a crucial moment in my life, and for that, I am forever grateful. ”

-Dee M, The Power of Right Now, August 2008
