I'm Jennifer.
A trainer, a coach, a speaker and an entreprenuer committed to fostering a community of fearless women who embrace their aspirations.

As I embark on this Journey of Resilience, Learning, and Transformation, my heart overflows with gratitude and warmth as I reflect on the path that has led me to this moment. With deep sincerity, I eagerly anticipate sharing my professional and personal narrative, a tapestry woven with threads of resilience, continuous learning, and an unwavering commitment to growth.

A journey of a thousand miles

Lao Tzu’s timeless wisdom, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” resonates deeply with me as I recall the inception of my entrepreneurial voyage over 10,300 days ago. At the tender age of twenty-two (22), I took my inaugural step into entrepreneurship with the establishment of Hospitality Asia, my very first print publication which later evolved into the HAPA® brand. Little did I foresee the profound impact that this initial stride would have on my life, propelling me into uncharted territories and shaping the course of my journey.

The journey of entrepreneurship is not without its challenges. Fear of the unknown, the weight of overthinking, and the labyrinth of uncertainty often cloud the pivotal moments where decisions are made. Yet, it is precisely in these moments of adversity that the seeds of growth are sown. Recognizing the transformative power of education, I embraced a lifelong journey of learning and development, driven by an innate motivation to expand my horizons and empower others.

In the year 2000, at the age of twenty-eight (28), I faced unforeseen challenges as a single mother navigating the complexities of business ownership. The burden of debt resulting from over-expansion cast a shadow over my entrepreneurial journey, constituting a chapter marked by fear and hardship. However, adversity took on a new form in early 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, presenting unprecedented challenges for businesses worldwide.

As the founder of a brick-and-mortar business, I confronted the stark reality of potential collapse, culminating in the agonizing decision to shutter my business. Yet, amidst the crucible of crisis, I found solace in the latent opportunities that lay hidden within the challenges. The pandemic served as a catalyst for personal and professional transformation, prompting a paradigm shift in my mindset and inspiring the inception of The MIND Academy—a beacon of empowerment and transformation.

My commitment to continuous learning propelled me to pursue certifications in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), culminating in fourteen (14) internationally recognized certifications and a forthcoming Masters in NLP. 

Always remember that as you walk towards what you fear most, you already possess the courage to have taken that first step. During this journey, know that your deepest struggle will give you your greatest strength to overcome whatever you may face.

This journey of self-discovery and empowerment has fortified my resolve to inspire others

 to defy age-related stereotypes and pursue their dreams with unwavering determination.

In essence, my life has been a testament to the boundless potential of the human spirit and the transformative power of education. Each step taken, regardless of age or circumstance, contributes to the collective growth of individuals and society as a whole. With deep gratitude and humility, I embrace the future with open arms, confident in my ability to make a meaningful impact and eternally grateful for the blessings bestowed upon me by the Almighty.


With warm regards and heartfelt gratitude,
