MY STORY

My name is Jen James, or Double J. I want to invite you on a journey of discovery, circumstance, and gratitude. The first 20+ years of my career I spent in the corporate world working with organizations large and small, helping them to transform, build and lead large teams in marketing and branding.  All the while I was learning, growing, and becoming. I transitioned to work as a Coach and Consultant about 8 years ago as I focused on building Double J and Admit One.  The shift afforded me an opportunity to expand my work and network; partnering with some amazing companies like Giant Tiger and Loblaws. At the same time I was able to commit time and energy into the growth and expansion of Admit One, leaning into my role as a producer.  We have been creating award winning content and experimenting along the way.  We are passionate storytellers and content creators.  We’ve created everything from documentary features, web series, music videos and corporate videos. I am a certified Mindful Practitioner, a coach, lean six sigma, yoga instructor, and now back in school for my Mindful Self-Compassion Teaching certification. I live a healthy lifestyle and have a big passion for running, I’m even crazy enough to have run a marathon.. I’m a firm believer in nurturing your body, mind, and spirit to live a mindful, purposeful, and connected life. I’ve dedicated myself to my vision, creating purpose and changing lives through the power of storytelling. It’s a philosophy and coaching strategy I’ve created to help entrepreneurs and businesses manage change mindfully.  Courtney and I designed our program, The Art of Mindful Storytelling to help business leaders level up their brand and marketing with mindful ease. We know that the journey to become a business leader is not easy, we’re living it, we know we can help and we are excited to pass along the knowledge we’ve learned over the years.

Mindful Business Coaching

If you are an entrepreneur or business leader and you find yourself nodding your head as you read this, I am so excited to let you know you are in the right place:

  • You have an idea of your why, you know you have a story, vision, and values but you’ve never put it all together or written it down
  • Content creation is a very real part of your day to day but it overwhelms you and sometimes you procrastinate or avoid it
  • The panic button fires because you realize that you just aren’t connecting with your customers the way you should or want to
  • You realize you need to make changes, you are committed; you’ve tried other programs and downloaded freebies and just haven’t seen the results you need

  • You want to commit to a mindset shift that is sustainable and practical
  • You realize the importance of building your vision, mission, why, values and story

I accelerated my leadership skills development under Jennifer’s mentorship which led to my recent promotion. Her uncanny ability to hone into who I am, assess what I need, help me see what I excel at and where my blind spots are is invaluable to me. She helped me find my courage to change where I needed to and celebrate achievements which motivated me to keep growing, even in the face of adversity. I’d highly recommend Jennifer to any organization looking to effect transformational change in their people and operations.

Jennifer James is the perfect balance of creativity and critical thinking. She is an expert at communications, conquering all platforms – written, oral and visual and creating synergies between them to produce a high-end result.We worked together on various retail and marketing programs.

These are the strengths she brings to Admit One Productions.
Over the years, she has been an exceptional coach for me. Her experience and analytical mind has been an asset to me because she provides an astute perspective that helps me to understand the dynamics of a situation and helps me to think of effective strategies to achieve my goals.

Asset Specialist, WalMart Canada

We met when we were both Senior leaders at WalMart.  It was an instant connection. I left to start my own company. I had a clear vision but I wasn’t sure how to communicate it.  With patience, compassionate listening, and a true desire to learn more about me Jen helped me clarify my voice and connect it to my why.  I discovered my ideal customer and have built a better understanding about them with Jen’s guidance.  Jen’s leadership helped me create and write my story, build my brand strategy, and ultimately give my business life.  She is a uniquely gifted storyteller.  Brands flourish because of this and so will yours.  She is not only creative but her coaching approach is top-notch.

Trendy words – yes – but a true ambassador in every sense! People are drawn to her and quickly realize she represents not only outstanding strength in leadership, coaching and strategic planning but someone who has ‘also’ mastered the concept of balancing professionalism with that of authentic character. She’s not afraid to make or suggest changes with the ultimate goal of optimization and never losing sight to ensure best practices are achieved. I have to say she made her mark on me and am truly grateful to have been able to work with her.

I chose Jen and Courtney as coaching partners, I soon realized that I was going a learn a whole more.  Jen made me dig deep, and I found my core values.   She made me realize I had a Mission and a Vision.   Before long I have a Vision Statement and a Mission statement.    Jen explained how important it is to have a strategy, and actually helped me create a new business for me called E3.   This is a new way to connect with customers. They helped me see that a new brand would be beneficial and a fresher look to the overall business.   Jen and Courtney worked with me to produce an amazing branding video.  Jen helped me with branding, colours and a new logo design.    I never realized there was so much more I needed to do and learn.    Jen and Courtney are a fun, loving couple who are very knowledgeable at what they do.   They each have their own speciality and work very well together.
