Jen Groover’s name has become synonymous with innovation, entrepreneurship, evolution and human potential. She was recently nominated as a UN delegate to the first ever Global Accelerator for the Global Entrepreneurs Council.

As a successful serial entrepreneur, author and thought leader in human potential, as well as a retired National Level Fitness Competitor, Jen Groover’s energy and multi-faceted, diverse wisdom and experiences have made her a highly sought after International speaker for over 20 years on topics ranging from: Optimizing Human Potential for increased Success and Happiness, Emotional Intelligence, Empowerment, Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Branding Wellness and Energy Management, Effective Communication Skills, through to Mindful Parenting. She has keynoted to audiences up to 30,000 people in stadiums, to leading intimate workshops for smaller groups, as well as online symposiums. Her clients have ranged anywhere from Fortune 500 Companies to top Universities, Business and Wellness Organizations, Chamber of Commerces, Women’s Groups, High Schools to Non-Profits.

Jen has been a top business and lifestyle contributor and content creator for major television networks such as ABC, CBS, CNBC, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business News, and the The CW. She and her products have also been featured on QVC. Jen also has regularly contributed editorial pieces to several prominent business magazines and online resources including The Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, Inc Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Positively Positive, and The Story Exchange. Her products, brand and work have been featured in hundreds of media outlets including O! The Oprah Magazine, Redbook, People, US Weekly, SUCCESS and Entrepreneur.

She is also a leading business and performance coach from CEO’s, top business executives, Entrepreneurs to Professional and Olympic Athletes.

Her success skyrocketed with the creation of the Butler Bag, the world’s first compartmentalized handbag, that became a multi-million dollar brand, and has not stopped since. Jen springboarded the Butler Bag’s success into an entire lifestyle brand, found at a variety of price points and well known retailers, which led to the creation of subsequent lifestyle brands, Leader Girlz, and Empowered by Jen Groover. Leader Girlz teaches young girls the importance of empowerment through play, while the recently launched “Empowered by Jen Groover” brand, including her one-hour PBS special and forthcoming book, comprises a variety of consumer products that encompass her quotes and inspire people to live life with passion and purpose.

Most recently, to support the Empowered Economy Initiative, Jen launched the innovative economic and innovation movement for entrepreneurs and small business owners Jumpstart Connect, a first of its kind pop-up shop where all the business services small business owners need, are curated under one roof. JumpStart Connect officially launched in Philadelphia in October, 2016, and is currently scaling to cities nationwide. The groundbreaking venture features a curated matchmaking model of business experts, global brands and entrepreneurs to creating an unique educational and resource driven experience to support small business growth and accelerate brands. This movement has been supported by brands like Comcast Business, UPS, Insperity and many more.

She is also an advisor/partner for a new company called Thuzio, started by Tiki Barber and Mark Gerson, that has been noted as an disruptive business model blending sports management, sports entertainment and Influencer marketing and has become one of the leading Influencer platforms.

Launching in 2018, Jen will be releasing three books - a relaunch of her best-selling What If? & Why Not?, with update resources, The Operators Manual for Life, and #Empowered (based on her PBS Special), with Make this Matter & CO Publishing.

Jen’s passion for inspiring others to realize their greatest potential on all levels, which was originally realized in her first business right out of college in the fitness industry and as a National level fitness competitor, continues as the driving force behind her many successful brands. Jen’s diverse experiences and businesses span many different industries and she has no desire to slow down anytime soon. Jen continues to strive toward her ultimate goal, which is to innovate in every industry she is inspired to play in, while empowering others to achieve their goals. Jen is more than a multi-faceted, multi-talented individual - she is, undoubtedly, a force to be reckoned with. Jen believes in active participation and lives by the belief that “if you are going to complain about something you better be willing to inspire change.”

But then he went broke, but then, he made it all back again, and now he is a successful serial entrepreneur and philanthropist who, through hardship, was forced to codify the rules of success.
