Nothing is as scary as a career change, because in reality, it is like a change of professional identity, which involves going back to start from scratch, coupled with the fac3t that there are no guarantees involved. A career change is a dreaded topic for many, and there is a huge chunk of people who feel there is no need to change one’s career, especially if one is doing fine in their current career. As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” However, Jennifer Neville did not only switch careers, but she also did so even though she was doing remarkably well. She was hugely popular in her former profession.
Jennifer Neville, born in Bradenton, Florida, is half Dominican and bilingual. She is currently living in Tampa, Florida. Jennifer describes her job as empowering the feminine in life, love, and business, using techniques such as astrology, tarot, and intuitive coaching to help people understand how to tap into their creative power and design offerings around what feels present for them or most inspiring.
As a person who is always driven by her passion, she also had the unique ability to design her life around that pursuit. “I played golf competitively my whole life and then professionally for four years after school. I was always fascinated with mindset development and knew that I wanted to one day have a platform to help others feel confident in pursuing their dreams,” she said of her uniqueness.
Recalling her journey to where she is, she pointed out that some of the best qualities, such as winning spirit, success and discipline, were taught to her by golf. Despite this, she left golfing and started her YouTube channel (dedicated to tarot and astrology) immediately. Fortunately, she was able to build a platform and help other coaches find similar success.
Jennifer owes her inspiration to people like Gabby Bernstein and other public speakers who talk about spiritual notions such as the law of attraction and the abundance mindset.
Though she was able to find success in her coaching practice, Jennifer admits that she had to face a lot of trial and error, especially considering how she divorced something she had dedicated most of her life to and had to disconnect from her identity as Jen the golfer. Growth and expansion in themselves are often very painful, as we have to face hard truths and make sacrifices for our awakening process.
On her motivation, she said, “Working with those soulmate clients. Getting to be present for these people has these huge shifts from taking my course, my 1:1 coaching, or even watching my YouTube video. That is one of the best feelings that I don’t ever want to give up.”
On her plans for the next five years, she said, “At the moment, I’m hoping to finish my book and officially become a published author. I am loving the digital course space and would like to continue to create online offerings as well as in-person experiences and more speaking engagements.”
