YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR CURRENT STRUGGLES & UNCERTAINTIES
It’s not worth your time to stress and be anxious about the future.
(And I don’t mean that in a blithe “no worries” way.)
I mean it in a, “you are packed with potential!” way.
You need to get on with living out that potential by building a career that plays to your strengths.
I know you don’t want your skills, interests and purpose put on hold because you’re uncertain about how it will all work out.
It’s time to get clear on your goals and make a plan forward.
You’re a hard worker. You’ve made every effort to set yourself up for success in life. You’re determined and focused when you know you’re on the right path.
But sometimes, even when we do everything “right,” we still end up in seasons where we feel lost, uncertain and overwhelmed.
It’s not bad that you feel this way (it happens to everyone from time to time). But we want to get you moving forward with purpose again.
The best way to move forward is to get clarity.
And often, clarity is found most quickly by talking to someone who is unbiased about your past and fully focused on helping you succeed in the future.
Feeling “stuck” or “unsure” doesn’t need to stay your story.
I Understand how you feel.
You’re tired of of feeling like your scrambling by.
You long for forward momentum towards your career goals.
but you don’t know how to to take the next step, or find the right opportunity.

MAybe you’re wondering…
Who am I?
I’m JEnnifer Spoelma.
I’m a Professional Career coach, author, speaker and Podcast Host.
I believe in growth & that being out of my comfort zone is where the best life happens.
I write for, speak to and coach people who desire to live life intentionally.
My passion is equipping you to live confidently and to live well.
The work I do is guided by the word “foresight” which means provident care, or taking action now to create the future you want.
Oftentimes, people don’t create the future they want for the following reasons:
They’re too distracted with the “now”
Thoughts of the future stir up anxiety
Guilt about their privilege to create a life they love
Fear about what others will think or say
Uncertainties leave them unable to take action
I’ve felt all of these things, too.
But early on in life, I made some goals for who I want to be when I’m older—not necessarily what I want to accomplish—but who I want to be.
I realized I wasn’t going to become that person without being intentional about it. In order to keep becoming someone who spreads peace, life and joy to others, I’ve learned that it’s vital to me that my work reflects my values and allows me to be creative, problem-solve and help others be their best.
Here are some examples of how I’ve personally Practiced building an aligned career:
Successfully transitioned two different, full-time jobs into part-time contract work.
Both times I was able to negotiate double (or more) of my original hourly salary! This allowed me to take on new opportunities and pursue my passions while still paying the bills.
Job-crafted a $10,000 promotion without following the management track.
I was able to define a position that I would thrive in, without sacrificing any potential income.
Increased my salary by 260% in 3.5 years.
By switching industries and transitioning into new roles, I was able to command a raise on average every six months.
Wrote & self-published my first book.
I knew I wanted to be an author and serve people with the written word. So I figured out the process and published Tell It Well: How to Discover, Own and Share Your Story Well just before my 25th birthday. Happy birthday to me!
Launched and fully-funded a Kickstarter campaign.
This was wayyy out of my comfort zone but I learned so much. The celebration was real when I hit that $14,000 mark!
