Permission to Fail with Jen Vertanen


Welcome to INHABIT!

Today's show sounds like an intimate, vulnerable conversation between old friends, but really it's an invitation to step into the ring of action in your life. Today's guest is the wonderful Jen Vertanen of the 'Going There with Jen Vertanen' Podcast. Jen is a coach by day, a podcaster by night, a mama, wife, and a Loneliness Expert.  Join us for this exploration of why we might want to go looking for failure, and why failure and loneliness go hand in hand.

I would really love to hear your most powerful insight from the show! Shoot me an email at I will respond to every email I receive.

In honor of the Spring Equinox I am offering Soul Strategy sessions until March 25th, 2018. Email me at to request a session or to find out more.
