We are at a precipice. We can choose how this moment looks. We can choose how our future looks.
Yes, these are extremely stressful times. We are in the middle of a crisis the likes of us have not seen in our lifetimes. We are all being forced to make difficult decisions when it comes to our livelihood and that amount of stress can take a toll on our mental and physical state.
But your family needs you. Your friends need you. The world needs you right now. Today, we have a choice. We can choose happiness.
Our goal is to be a little ray of sunshine breaking through the hard shell of terror that is currently subsuming our world.
Together, we will rebuild.
Jennifer “Jen” Heller
Professional worrier. Mom, entrepreneur. Lifetime student of brain science. Determined to make the best of the end of the world.
As a mom and a long time entrepreneur, I have encountered my fair share of challenges. For the last 20 years, I’ve been working with solopreneurs and non-profits alike. Conjuring up out-of-the-box ideas is my specialty and with the current worldwide crisis at hand, I know that approaching this in the traditional sense isn’t going to cut it.
As a Certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming Master Practitioner, I decided to take my expertise and find creative and fun ways to combat the devastating and long-lasting effects this pandemic could have on our well-being.
I run Artsy Geek, an Oakland-based creative agency. We are available for hire.
I am also available for online speaking engagements and team-building workshops. I lead an engaging interactive workshop on Finding Humor & Getting By in Today’s World. Book me now!
