The Short Version: Once 30-year-old single professional Jennifer Spaulding took ownership of her life and committed to change, she saw transformative results in her love life and her career. Within a few years, she got married and increased her salary by 27% because she dared to ask for what her expertise was worth. Today, she is a passionate speaker and leadership coach guiding women to achieve their own relationship and work goals. Jennifer’s insightful consultations and speaking engagements promote cultivating a positive mindset to drive success in life, love, and work. By advocating for self-awareness and self-love, Jennifer encourages women to take charge of their lives and seek the love, happiness, and success they truly deserve.
Jennifer Spaulding had assumed she’d be married by the time she was 30, but, at age 36, she had yet to meet a suitable partner. Her life was good, but it wasn’t where she wanted it to be. She’d taken a 50% salary cut to work for an international nonprofit and had raised millions of dollars for charities. She then transitioned back to the IT industry and her company’s leadership team. She was a go-getter and high-achiever who took good care of herself. She worked out, maintained a busy social life, and had financial security. But she wasn’t happy.
Feeling at a crossroads, Jennifer took stock of her life and decided to do everything she could to make a change. She read self-help books, went to see a professional mentor, and identified the actions and beliefs that were holding her back from her dreams.
“I didn’t know what it meant to be as kind to myself as I was to everyone else,” she said. “I was extremely hard on myself.”
Bit by bit, Jennifer strengthened her optimism through daily exercises of feeling gratitude and noticing the joys she had in her life. She trained herself to look for the positive side, so that when a blind date showed up wearing a bright turquoise shirt and “dad jeans,” she didn’t let that negatively weigh her opinion about him. She gave him a fair chance, and he turned out to be the perfect guy for her. They’re now married.
Jennifer’s life-changing attitude adjustment also yielded returns in her career — she worked up the guts to ask her boss for a 27% salary increase, and she got it. Now she makes it her mission to lead other women to see what they deserve and then go out and get it. Her dynamic leadership coaching and speaking engagements address how to visualize and find success in love, career, and life in general.
“My mission is to help women lead extraordinary lives with love and purpose,” Jennifer said. “I believe deeply in the ability to take bold action to get what you want, and it starts with being more confident.”
In her private coaching practice, Jennifer works primarily with women in their mid-30s or older. Her clients tend to be highly driven and successful managers, directors, and business leaders who seek to improve on certain aspects of their lives. She meets with clients in person, over the phone, and through video chat.
Her one-on-one consulting sessions help women develop strategies to define and achieve success in a short period of time. Whether you’re hoping to accelerate your success or thinking about asking for a promotion, Jennifer comes up with a concrete action plan to get you where you want to be.
Additionally, Jennifer offers a more targeted leadership and executive coaching for savvy career women seeking to maximize their opportunities for growth and development in the workplace. Jennifer has firsthand experience negotiating for a raise and exceeding her company’s expectations so she can offer clear-headed guidance for women in various industries and organizations.
If you just want a quick tune up or pep talk, you can enroll in Jennifer’s VIP Intensives program. These consultations focus on the short-term solutions to get professionals to their objectives as quickly as possible. You’ll create a success plan for the next few months and learn important stress management and negotiation skills to carry out your goals.
“We all need someone to point out the things we can’t see,” Jennifer said. “You can’t always see what’s blocking you from getting what you want.”
After a 20-year career in IT consulting, sales, marketing, and financial services, Jennifer has now turned her attention to leadership coaching to inspire business leaders, entrepreneurs, and other professionals around the world. She travels to conferences and workshops to speak about productivity, conflict management, mentorship, and self-care.
In the words of her website, “Jennifer shares lessons learned, insights, and essential tools through speaking engagements, videos, and personalized coaching and group programs.”
Jennifer emphasizes how essential love lessons and relationship skills can carry over to all aspects of life, especially in the business world. “Once you know how to do your job,” she said, “it all comes down to relationships.”
In her speaking engagements, workshops, and coaching sessions, Jennifer teaches relationship knowledge, including the five love languages, to promote successful career moves and networking skills. Her insights on conflict resolution and human psychology can greatly benefit women in the workplace. When you understand your boss’ style of communication or your coworker’s need for appreciation, for example, it’s easier to communicate, get along, and strive for the best solutions together.
People of all walks of life can learn from Jennifer’s motivational ideals. “Regardless of what your relationship status is,” she concluded, “you should always be looking to improve. The great news is, even if you’re doing very well, you could do better.”
Sometimes we all need an objective voice to guide us out of life’s difficulties. As Jennifer pointed out, it’s hard for you to do your own brain surgery. There’s no shame in asking for help and learning from someone else’s point of view. Many women have come away from consultations with Jennifer and her free 5 Days to a More Bold You training feeling equipped to change their lives.
One 44-year-old woman came to Jennifer because she wanted to be in a relationship but had trouble believing it was possible. A few weeks of coaching showed her how to set boundaries and be unafraid to say no early on so that she wouldn’t waste her time. She picked up smart dating techniques and soon met a wonderful man who’d never been married either. After a whirlwind romance, they tied the knot, and the woman thanked Jennifer for helping her believe it was possible.

New Yorker Lauren Ciandella felt overwhelmed by negative emotions about herself and dating — until she met Jennifer. “Now I feel more confident overall,” she wrote in a testimonial. “I am so excited that I have many tools to use as I move forward, and steps to get me close to a more wholehearted, authentic, and best version of myself.”
“Jennifer coaches with such a powerful and engaged direction,” Lindsey L. said in her testimonial. “I hear her gentle voice and begging questions resonating when I make decisions for weeks on end.”
“We all have the power to make change — all we need is the determination and know-how to see it through,” Jennifer said. “I’m so happy for anyone who has the courage to try to achieve their dreams.”
When you’re clear about what you want, you can find the path to attain it. The moment Jennifer took responsibility for her life, everything changed for her. She no longer accepted the narrative that she was too picky, that she wasn’t worth a higher salary, or that she couldn’t get what she desired. At age 36, Jennifer took bold action and earned a long list of personal triumphs, including a happy marriage.
Today, Jennifer travels the world to share what she learned about the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, creating specific goals, and developing strong relationship skills. The leadership coach’s insights can be helpful to singles looking to attract a partner and to employees looking to get a raise.
By applying love lessons to the business world, Jennifer opens people up to life-changing possibilities in all aspects of life.
“I very much want to help women get what they want and need,” she said. “I believe our purpose is to use our gifts to help others, and that’s what I intend to do.”
