How do you create a space for what’s important to you? For those dreams that you leave in the background for “one day”, “when X is done”, or “when I have time”?

Whenever that right time might be, you can start decluttering in the meantime – removing some ‘shoulds’, ‘musts’ and maximising what time you have for what needs doing right now. With just a little rearranging, you can make just a bit more room for your priorities, your needs and wants.

“But isn’t it selfish to put myself first?” Actually, once you put yourself first, you’ll find that you have more energy for those around you because you have that energy to give out. There’s nothing to give when you’re running on fumes. We’ve all felt that vacant feeling when you offload to a friend and you don’t get the response you want because they aren’t fully present. You don’t want to miss those opportunities to be there for someone you care about.

Once you put your priorities first and bat away all the ‘shoulds’ and ‘musts’, keeping what’s in line with your values, you have more room for all the great things you want to keep, to grow and more.

So what will you find here?

Simply put, I’m a time management coach, a lifestyle coach, a how-do-I-get-the-life-I-want-when-I-don’t-know-what-I-want coach.

Here you’ll find blogs of my own journey towards designing a life of my choosing – the challenges I face and the back and forth emotions I debate. For more on me click here.

“Very reflective and motivational coaching style. I have always found myself thinking more positively and constructively about any challenges I face after some much needed coaching by Jen.” – Ansa Ahmed, Founder of HOPE Bereavement Support 

“Having known Jen for well over a year now and been privileged to spend time with her on both a one-to-one basis and also when she has organised and led group coaching, Jen is a very unique coach, to say she is inspirational would be too bland a comment as Jen has a depth and compassion that brings out the best in anyone who is fortunate to be in here presence.  Her ability in making every person feel valued and special in whatever coaching environment is taking place, obviously brings great vision and confidence to the person(s) involved.  Having spent the past 25 years coaching at various level and been coached by some incredible people, Jen Mak would always be classed as one of the best I’ve worked or have been involved with.” – Paul Abraham, The MMM Coach
