Frequently asked questions
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
The Standing Mountain™ health and wellness coaching for adults or older teens is were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about making a change and are ready to do what is necessary to improve their life, which means bringing back that smile, moving forward with life goals, and getting back to the life they want.
LIFE IS NOT OVER. Whether you are restarting after a long term marriage is over or a career change or an empty nester. You are not dead. You have many things yet to ACCOMPLISH.
Every day is a new day to discover and reach new heights.
These programs were created for you to put proven systems in place within a few months (if not weeks), which will eventually lead to you gaining the confidence and vitality you need to OBTAIN GREATER ENERGY, CONFIDENCE TO DO THINGS YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO, and FEELING EXCITEMENT each and every day.
Being a high-achiever, believer in a higher purpose, and always have a learning module or book or podcast going on somewhere, I’m known to work best with other high achieving go-getters, people who are ready to improve their situation and take the necessary steps to get it done, make it work, and be the best they can be. When my clients tell me, “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it,” I expect them to take consistent action. No excuses. You will receive the support you need, the tools, and a nourishing learning environment to guide you as you achieve what you need to achieve whether it is better relationships, improved whole body wellness, genuine fulfillment, or life purpose.
For what types of people are your programs NOT going to work?
Do yourself (5) favors:
1. If you are not ready to make a change, then keep searching, reading, and SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE that support you until you are ready.
2. If it is uncomfortable thinking about taking ownership and responsibility for your choices and making the necessary changes, then remember that until you realize that you have the power to improve your life and be and do and live the life you really want, then your situation will continue to stay the same, if not get worse. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your health and your life. When you are ready, I will guide your every step until you can fly away free, whole, and vibrant.
3. If you do not have the finances to support investing in yourself, then find the money through financial rearrangements or a part-time job and then call me.
4. JOIN the free The Standing Mountain™ Facebook group. The free information will get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one. http://bit.ly/TSMGroup
5. Make a point to read the “The Standing Mountain™” monthly NEWSLETTER after you share your email address with me. If you do not want to share your email, then check on this site weekly for my Blog posts and read the latest tips there.
Doing these five things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you are ready.)
Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic and complainer, as well as individuals who constantly make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. I also do not tolerate people who regularly blame others and do not take responsibility for their actions. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
What exactly is Reclaim, Renew, Relaunch™ and what does it include?
Young at Age or Young at Heart: THIS PROGRAM IS FOR YOU. Life is a marathon. It truly is. And I am your coach. All of us have BIG FEELINGS as we travel forward with TOUGH STUFF. Together we emerge stronger by finding how your inner strength will move you forward to a place full of satisfaction, meaning, and fulfillment. This will happen when you begin to understand your true value, how to create powerful intentions, and how to manifest the life that you want whether that is better health, fulfilling relationships, or achieving the long lost dream that was put on hold while you supported your family for the past 35 years. Or maybe you are barely 18 and you are a bit overwhelmed with it all. I get it. Having an experienced Life and Wellness Coach is very helpful.
The Reclaim, Renew, Relaunch™ system guides you to do:
This is where we learn about your life and understand CRYSTAL CLEAR about what your intentions are and what you want to experience or reclaim in your personal life. Before you can create what you want, you need to KNOW WHAT YOU WANT. This is a space created for you to begin sharing who you are and where you want to go.
You may know what it is that is holding you back from succeeding, or you may need guidance on identifying what is holding you back. This is where we spend time identifying any self-doubt, inner resistance, anxiety, or fear that is blocking you from your full potential so that you can finally take action and RELEASE YOUR INNER GEESE. Find out more when you enroll.
We will IDENTIFY YOUR INNER STRENGTHS and talk about past successes. Reset your foundation, so you feel strong and confident. We will discover your passions and what exactly feeds your soul.
We will pinpoint “your FUEL TYPE” and acknowledge systems you need to support your health, your relationships, or professional life. Knowing what YOU need to refuel your body, your mind, and your soul is very valuable to thriving on your everyday path and your long term journey.
We will learn specific “REDISCOVERY TOOLS” and add them to your personalized toolbox. When you use these tools, you will achieve the RESULTS you are looking for. This is HOW you will be successful. Different people need different tools. Some of my health and wellness clients have gained common tools such as nutrition tricks and sneaking in non-exercise movement and incorporating accountability systems as they set daily goals for exercise and weight loss. Other clients have learned the power of affirmations and reframing their inner voice to sanctify their self-talk as they gain confidence and move forward with their life. Sometimes clients need exposure to a new perspective, insight, or understanding of internal and external dynamics that they didn’t notice before. Every situation is different and the coaching process is personalized to you. You receive what you seek. The coaching sessions are for you, not the for the masses.
This is where we FINE TUNE YOUR LIFE VISION and set goals to achieve those things you value using the inner strengths you identified, skills you learned, and the power of believing that you can achieve our dreams and believing you deserve them.
This is where we identify specific ACTION PLANS and set specific goals to improve your effectiveness and abilities so that your personal or professional life continues to evolve and become what you want it to be.
Now that you have invested in yourself and gained personalized tools, you will move forward with the action plan you created with me. By now, you may have already made serious strides in your life. You are now armed with specific knowledge and skills, confidence, vision, and support and can generate the results you deserve. Your life will move to the next level of success as you EXPERIENCE WHOLE BODY WELLNESS, HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS, AND PASSIONATE LIFE PURPOSE.

Can I contact some of your clients to see what it is like to work with you?
Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonial page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to.
How Quickly Can I Expect Results?
That depends on how quickly you can transition to making those inner shifts. Some clients are ready to reclaim, renew, and relaunch their life in a very short time frame, even a few weeks, whiles others need more processing time and encouragement to move forward.
How can I guarantee myself that I will achieve more confidence and positive results in record time?
Do all your homework. Be totally committed to yourself. Understand that making changes is a process, a proven one, that only works if you TAKE OWNERSHIP and action and do the steps.
All of my clients who have diligently applied every step in the Reclaim, Renew, Relaunch™ system have said their lives are more successful both personally and professionally.
Will I recover the investment I put in my coaching program?
Yes, a resounding Yes! When you choose to invest in yourself by aligning yourself with a coach that understands you, your values, and your vision, and can help you manifest the life that you want, whether it is improved whole body wellness, improved relationships, or passionate life purpose, you will reap the rewards.
Stop and ask yourself:
How much better will my life be when I am able to do the things I want to do because I am physically or emotionally stronger?
How much better will my life be when I can wake up in the morning and be excited about my plans for the day and feel a sense of purpose and value every day?
Chances are, the amount of success you feel as your daily decisions and quality of life improve will be so valuable to you that it will more than cover your coaching investment. Your life satisfaction will be worth 10 times more than the coaching investment you made.

Improve your life and the lives of others: Book a “Connect Call” for personal wellness coaching or schedule a class for your community.
Jeni is part of the Speaker’s Bureau for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrator and can schedule a book reading, signing, and educational community conversation with an interested school, place of worship, or educational organization.
Jeni has a heart for others and creating this book is only her beginning for supporting positive change in our world, one conversation at time, one person at a time, and one book at a time.
Jeni is currently scheduling times for one of the two below topics:
Kind Words: "Connecting Communities with Conversation"
Provides an age-appropriate interactive community style conversation about healthy relationships within peer groups, community, and at home. The earlier we can teach healthy communication skills and confident boundary identification, the sooner we can create safe, happy, healthy relationships reducing and preventing family, domestic, and dating violence.
Kind Words: The Glue That Helps Keep Us Together
Is a children’s picture book released May 2019 that gently introduces different communication styles and how sometimes mean talk happens at home and that it is not their fault, nor are they alone, if they find themselves in an unsafe situation. This book was created for the earliest reader but can easily provide a segue for deeper conversations with teens and young adults.
“Jennifer has designed and implemented exercise programs to meet the needs of all levels. She has done a great job of keeping us fit and healthy. THANKS!!”
— MARGIE, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
“When I began my coaching with Jeni, I was overweight with body aches and super stressed out. She helped me with food strategies, daily routines, and staying in tune with my body’s way of communicating. I am now 20 lbs lighter and keeping it off, feeling so much better, and confident that I can stay healthy despite my busy schedule. Thank you!”
SAN DIEGO, CA
“When I first met Jeni, I was so stressed out, having a hard time adjusting to my new neighborhood, and was tired and achy. Jeni helped me with an easy exercise routine, encouraged me to try new things, and provided very helpful fall prevention and stability techniques when I am dizzy. I am now enjoying a leadership role in my community, a flexible and less stressed body, and the skills to stay safe and vertical. ”
SAN DIEGO, CA
“On our bus trip to New Mexico, we watched your exercise video. We had hilarious fun stretching our limbs in the constricted space of the seats on the bus. Thank you (from all of us) for making this helpful tool for us while on vacation.”
— SIGLINDE (SIGGI), SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
