Interview with Jen Marples

Some times you have to break it all the way down in order to build it back up! My guest reached a point where she realized the people most important to here were not getting the best of her. And that was unacceptable. But breaking the deep habits of the cycle are not easy. However, taking her own advice and seeking expert support, she started moving in and with purpose – including reframing the “go big or go
home” paradigm. Because you are Not Too F***ing Old!™!

After receiving her MBA, Laurel moved from accounting and consulting to human resources, driven by a desire to do good in a business environment. It quickly became apparent that the switch had been a good choice — she flourished professionally and became happier, satisfied with the difference she could make through her work.
