Hello! I’m Jen Huizenga - a Certified Energy Leadership Coach, and the retired Head of Operations for a multi-million dollar company.
I’m here to help professional women who are feeling overworked, overwhelmed and completely stressed out to finesse the hurdles and obstacles in their way so that they can once again regain their zest for life.
You’re here because your dream of that corner office has become a nightmare. You’re working around the clock. When you are at work, you are feeling guilty for all that you are missing at home. When you finally leave the office, you keep thinking of all that you need to still get done at work. No matter where you are or what you are doing, nothing has your full attention. When the weekend comes, you don't want to get out of bed, but you know you have too. Everyone is counting on you. You are the go-to person. You do it all. And it's killing you. You need a solution.
But what makes me the business coach that’s going to help you get your career and life back on track?
Because I’ve been where you are...
I haven’t always been a leadership coach, and I didn’t start my career as the Head of Operations with a multi-million dollar company.
Over two decades ago, I started out on the bottom rung of the corporate ladder, and after YEARS of hard work, sacrifice, and a TON of overtime, I got the promotion I’d been working toward!
Do you remember how you felt when you received your first big promotion? Remember how excited you were to make a name for yourself, show everyone what you had to offer? You saw yourself as a mentor of a team of excited, energetic employees, all eager to align themselves with your mission and watch it grow! This was it! You just landed your dream job!
I felt the same way about my company and leading my team, and I was ready to take on the world...
It didn’t play out like that though. From the outside, looking in, it looked like I had it all; a great job, a beautiful marriage and family, and we had just built our dream home. On the inside, I was completely miserable, restless, and depressed. And I had no idea why!
Each morning, when the alarm would ring, I didn't want to get out of bed. I had no desire to live this wonderful, successful life I had created for myself. I was unhappy, depressed and worse yet, I felt completely stuck. How could I tell anyone? They would think I was the most ungrateful person in the world. It looked like I had it all and my life was perfect. I felt like the most ungrateful person in the world.
It was at that moment that I knew I needed to figure this out...
I wasn't ungrateful. I wasn't a fake. It was time to make a change and discover where this was coming from.
Now, I have discovered where the unhappy, depressed, stuck feelings were coming from and how to move out of those. Now, I am excited to get out of bed each and every morning, looking forward to the day ahead of me. Now, I ask myself, "Why didn't you do this sooner?"
I believe that everyone deserves to be happy, fulfilled and empowered to live their life to the fullest, both inside and outside of work. No explanation is needed for the changes you desire. Let me empower you to lead your fullest life.
