IBG 68 – Jennifer Freeman – The Courage Born of Authenticity

November 30, 2018 / By Sarah Santacroce

Are you doing work that doesn’t align with your truth? What if you could break free of cultural conditioning and follow your own voice? What if you gave yourself permission to be who you really are? Jennifer Freeman grew up in a family where success was measured by income, and she endured many years pursuing land development in a competitive environment—work that didn’t at all support her inner values as an introvert. It wasn’t until she created a life and business aligned with her strengths and talents that Jen discovered the courage born of authenticity.

Jen is a transformational business coach who helps clients recognize and bring forward their inner gifts. A long-time practitioner of mind-body awareness, she calls upon her understanding of Qigong, Ayurveda, Buddhist philosophy, and modern capitalism to support her intuitive wisdom and inspire individuals and businesses to engage in their highest calling.

Today, Jen explains how discovering your own authentic gifts leads to a courage born of authenticity. She shares her own journey from financial services and land development to a transformational coaching practice, discussing the challenge in stepping away from the ‘normal trajectory’ to partner with spirit. Jen also offers insight around the power of listening for genius, acknowledging the subtler reality, and developing a willingness to be visible as an introvert. Listen in to understand how marketing with authenticity makes your business stand out and learn how to align the work you do with your inner truth!
