Getting What You Want In Life | Jennifer Cohen

Getting What You Want In Life | Jennifer Cohen

“Boldness is the secret sauce of life.” You just have to keep trying. If you just put yourself outside the box, you never know where life will take you.


According to Jennifer Cohen’s “10% Target Mindset,” people should be BOLD and ask for what they want rather than accepting what is handed to them.

Jennifer is an entrepreneur, bestselling author, brand strategist, podcaster, and educator. We discuss the key takeaways from her latest book, “Bigger, Better, Bolder.” She talks about being bold, and that is like a skill. She shares how to create ourselves instead of finding them and tells her story about asking Keanu Reeves to help her with a job audition. Wow, that was a bold move! The Secret to Getting Anything You Want in Life, a remarkable TED Talk she gave, has also gone viral, with over 5 million views in less than two years.

In this episode

Her podcast “Habits and Hustle” is well known for encouraging thousands of listeners to overcome their self-doubt and live a more courageous life by pursuing their goals rather than settling for what they can get.

Have you ever asked yourself, “How can I get what I want in life?” Most of us struggle with these types of questions regularly, which can get draining and overwhelming. Today, Jennifer will help us understand how we can break free from our self-doubt and live bolder lives! To her, overthinking is what kills people’s dreams. It keeps us in “analysis paralysis,” where it’s in your head, you think about it, but then you’re not executing. Don’t let that overthinking stop you from trying!

I am a big fan of her work, and I am excited about this episode because I truly believe that she has some truly impactful wisdom for people who are serious about pursuing their dreams and living their best lives. She is so kind, enthusiastic, and passionate about what she does. It was very inspiring to talk with her.
