Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.
My online home is at JennyBlake.me, where I explore how to move beyond burnout to thrive at the intersection of mind, body and business. Hop on over and take the guided tour, and be sure check out the Business Ninja Tech Toolkit.
I am also the author of Life After College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want (Running Press, 2011) — a portable life coach with tips, quotes and coaching exercises to help you get clarity on every area of your life, based on my blog of the same name (founded in 2005). The book was later featured across 1,700 Target stores and published and Korea and Japan. The blog aims to helps 20-somethings “Wake up, live big! and love the journey” through practical tools and tips (and my own ups and downs), and has been featured in the WSJ, US News & World Report and Forbes.com.
I am a member of the Young Entrepreneur Council and was recently recognized by Under 30 CEO as one of "30 Up and Coming Bloggers Everyone Should Know." In 2011 I took my own great leap by leaving Google after 5 years to move to New York City and pursue my passions full-time - coaching, speaking, teaching yoga and running my online courses (The Acorn Project, Make Sh*t Happen and Build Your Business).
During my time at Google, I worked in training, coaching, career development and the Authors@Google program.
I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), a certified Myers Briggs facilitator, and completed yoga teacher training at White Lotus in October 2010 and Thai Massage training at The Sunshine School in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Now come join me and say hi at JennyBlake.me!
