Jen’s journey began with her father incarcerated for 12 years in Cuba for opposing Fidel Castro, shaping her early life as the daughter of immigrants and a political prisoner with feelings of not fitting in.

[22:01] It’s not about perfection – but about showing up

Personal growth is not about perfection but rather about showing up through small, consistent actions over time.

Jen advocates starting with 1% to achieve growth, emphasizing small incremental steps can lead to big results over waiting for perfection.

[28:48] It starts with your why

Change starts internally with understanding your “why”and not by immediately taking external actions, as meaningful and sustainable change comes from within.

[33:58] Get unstuck from unsustainable cycles

People often get stuck in unsustainable cycles chasing after comparisons in areas like money, fame, social media likes or weight, rather than focusing on redefining success in a holistic, sustainable way.

Taking on an “athlete mentality” can help you achieve wellness through habits matching who you want to be, focusing more on consistency than fleeting results.
