jen-trans
Jennifer is the bestselling author of WTF to OMG, Happy on Purpose, and The Gratitude Transformation Journal. She is a teacher, certified personal trainer, Ironman triathlete, single mother, and storyteller who is here to liberate the lost and the overwhelmed from the day to day grind of mindless obligations so that they can find their way back to happy!

She is a self-proclaimed personal development junkie who has changed her own life simply by changing her mind. Over ten years ago, Jennifer experienced what she calls a “WTF Moment” and decided she was done with her current level of misery. She stopped blaming others for her situation and took full responsibility for creating change. She got seriously clear about what she wanted and began to use the power of focus, gratitude and curiosity to redefine her experiences.

Jennifer is the owner of SWIFTKICK Life and is the creator of The Inspire the Fire Within Wellness Retreat and The LIFEMAP Productivity + Life Planner. She is the host of the GET HAPPY NOW podcast on iTunes and Stitcher. Her mission in life is to help others understand that if they step up and into their lives they can move from WTF to OMG just like she did!

Speaking gives Jennifer a chance to connect with larger groups of people by sharing her story and her work. She is excited to be able to offer her services to entertain and educate your group. With over 15 years of teaching experience, she can easily modify her content to meet the needs of different learners and diverse audiences. Please contact her to discuss your specific needs.

In a culture of more, more, more we seldom stop to appreciate the blessings that currently surround us. Understanding how gratitude can impact our health and wellness is a profoundly powerful realization that can change everything about how you participate in your life. This presentation will teach you how to cultivate a response of gratitude in a sometimes heart-breaking, overly busy and chaotic world!

“Life has taught me that in all moments, there is something to be grateful for, but I had to teach myself to see these things. I struggled for a long time. Learning to trust in the power of gratitude has changed my life.” – Jennifer Sparks

Happy on Purpose

If you ask people what they really want in life, continued probing would reveal that they “just want to be happy!” They may feel that because they have done everything just as they “should have,” happiness should be a given. This presentation will teach you that happiness is a skillset that needs to be practiced and that it takes work to learn how define your own happiness so that you can navigate life on your own terms.

“Being Happy on Purpose is about making a conscious decision in each moment to move towards or away from happiness. It is not about having the perfect life; it is about learning how to be happy by using your focus to define your experiences.” Jennifer Sparks

WTF to OMG: Creating a Life You Love

What do we do when we find ourselves living a life that brings us little satisfaction? How do we take back control even if we are living in less than ideal situations? Through the use of both hilarious and moving real-life stories, I demonstrate the power that a mindset shift can have on the quality of your life and relationships with others.

“A true WTF Moment makes you aware of your current reality. It demands you accept full responsibility for where you are and it gives you the vision you need to commit to change.” Jennifer Sparks

Half Day and Full Day Workshops (Hands on)

Jennifer has several workshops designed to allow participants an opportunity to imagine and feel what is possible. These can be customized for corporate events and diverse audiences. Please contact me for details.

The LIFEMAP Productivity + Life Planner – One Day Workshops

The LIFEMAP Workshop allows participants to work with a coach as they learn how to use annual planning, quarterly planning, daily planning and various strategies (habit stacking, magic 6, easy wins, morning minute and gratitude) to quickly increase their productivity and their life satisfaction.

Self Publishing Process

Several of Jennifer’s self published books have become repeat Amazon bestsellers. In addition, her first book, WTF to OMG remained on McNally’s Bestseller list for over 20 consecutive weeks and made the 2014 Saskatchewan Bestseller list at number 12. Jennifer enjoys sharing how her process has changed overtime and how people can get “writing a book” off their bucket list! Jennifer also has a video course on self publishing and invites groups to hire her for weekend workshops on the self publishing process.

What Event Organizers Are Saying:

Opening Keynote at SHETA/ASHE Conference Sept 2016

“We booked Jennifer as our Keynote Speaker for the Saskatchewan Home Ec Teachers Association Conference.  Finding a Keynote Speaker who shares a message that resonates with entire group can be difficult, but Jennifer connected with everyone.  Her presentation on The Power of Gratitude and Being Happy on Purpose was engaging and relatable.  I made so many personal connections with Jennifer and enjoyed listening to her journey.  She is a wonderful speaker with a powerful message!”

Haley Bartsch, SHETA/ASHE Conference Co-Chair

Breakout Sessions at WIM/WiN Conference 2015

 “Jennifer presented two 90 minute sessions at the 2015 WIM/WiN Conference on the topic of happiness and success. As an event planner, I came across Jennifer through an article on her latest book Happy on Purpose  and felt that this type of information was something the attendees could benefit from learning more about. Both of her sessions were very well attended and she received lots of positive feedback from the attendees. She is a dynamic presenter who engages her audience on an emotional level with a professional quality presentation. She is also storyteller who was able to keep her audience entertained as she presented happiness research through memorable and impactful stories and examples.

From an event planner’s perspective, I really appreciated her professionalism in providing bio, picture, promo piece and presentation on deadline. She was able to augment her sessions by offering her books and her online course/resources to the conference attendees at a substantial discount, truly supporting the ones who were most interested in what she had to share about living a full and rewarding life, regardless of individual life circumstances. I wouldn’t hesitate to book her services again or to recommend her to others.”

Jennifer’s discussion “Get Your Happy On” was fabulous and she offered innovative & realistic ways to become more positive in your own life, as well as to create positivity around you. Jennifer’s simple principles and life stories gave an opportunity for all of us to sit back and reflect on our own lives and the changes we can all make to be happier.”
