I had the pleasure of personally working with Jen professionally several years ago and learned about her methods first hand and have practiced them since that time. I am so glad that others can benefit from her teaching with the release of this book. This book is an easy read, full of relatable material that can be used immediately to improve your life. Jen’s EQ teachings were critical for me to utilize over this past year. I have had several challenges and every time I met someone that learns about what I have had to overcome, they ask me “How do you still have a smile on”. I truly believe it is because of Jen’s EQ coaching and helping me understand the “three R’s”, the Quadrant Model of Engagement and the MOST Model. These all helped me to push through each situation and allowed me to end up in a better place; when at the beginning I was thinking it was pretty bleak and overwhelming. Now with Jen’s methodologies in black and white, I can carry it around with me and reference it to be sure I am moving forward, and not backwards when faced with a challenge. I am not a religious person, but I do think of it like my bible. Her methodologies are so simple that I am instilling them in my children that have their own personal challenges in dealing with severe learning disabilities. Ironically, everybody that meets them, the one word that comes to mind for them is the word “RESILIENT”. I have to agree.
