Jennifer Davey is a Small Business Coach and Marketing Strategist. She helps small businesses, self employed professionals, and solopreneurs with strategies for getting clients, building business and making more income. Jennifer spent 12 years working in the television news media before she struck out on her own. In her last corporate job she was working as a television director in Washington DC . Many of the people she worked with were single, and the schedule of those working in TV news can be very brutal, making it hard to meet someone. This led Jennifer to her first entrepreneurial venture, a web site for singles and related topics. Over time her small business expanded into paid Matchmaking and Personals sites. The sites did so well that she left her television directing job, and became a self employed professional. A few years later, Jennifer sold her matchmaking and personals sites to a competitor. Shortly after Jennifer sold her sites she started consulting for other businesses, providing marketing, digital strategy and project management. Jennifer quickly ramped up her business and had a full schedule of clients, and a waiting list! She was able to cherry pick what projects she worked on, and work with her ideal clients. Jennifer was on her second successful business, but noticed that sometimes clients were resisting what they needed to do in order to be successful. It occurred to Jennifer that a big step was missing in the entire process of getting clients and building businesses. Clients were not looking at their priorities, to make sure their business was being built in alignment with their values. If you try to build a business that does not resonate with the life you want to create, you will either fail or be successful and miserable! So, Jennifer went back to school to become a business coach, rather than just a consultant. From this experience, Jennifer created her 14 step formula for getting clients, building business and making more income. Jennifer’s passion led her to found her third business "JJS Coaching". Jennifer’s coaching practice focuses on helping her clients thrive in getting clients, building their business and making more income.
