About Jenny Blake

Jenny recently took her own great leap by leaving Google to move to New York City and pursue her passions full-time. She is focused on helping others “Wake up, live big! and love the journey” through coaching, speaking, and her latest project, Make Sh*t Happen — an 8-week course that takes people’s biggest goals from “impossible” ideas to inevitable success. She is the author of the book, Life After College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want (Running Press, 2011) and blogs at LifeAfterCollege.org, where she provides simple, practical tips about life, work, money, happiness and personal growth. Jenny’s goal is to help people focus on the BIG picture of their lives…not just the details. Jenny loves dogs, dancing, football, yoga, gadgets, moleskines, and good music.
