After graduating from Tufts University with a Public Health degree Jeanne Grabowski went straight to business to get a real world education and paycheck. For a short time, she paired Portfolio Managers of hedge funds with Physicians to talk about drugs in development to inform their investments. . “I suffered in my 9 to 5 more than necessary. If I saw the bigger picture earlier, and realized that I wasn’t stuck there for my whole life – just a part of my life – while I was paving the way for a new career it would have mitigated the suffering. Once I recognized that an exit strategy was possible, I started to enjoy the job more.”
A year later Jeanne left her corporate job behind and took back reins of her life. She dropped everything, moved to NYC and began volunteering for a Corporate/Life Coaching Company. Despite the great colleagues, the dynamic role, and security of her corporate job, Jeanne couldn’t ignore her soul’s desire to morph business and a passion for wellness.
In January 2011 Jeanne launched her business as a Certified Holistic Health Coach. Like many entrepreneurs, Jeanne’s decision was strongly influenced by The Four Hour Work Week. Jeanne’s coaching practice is a compilation of experiences in: Nutrition, Public Health, Life Coaching, Corporate/Private Healthcare, and Executive Recruiting. She runs private and group coaching programs in New York City.
Jeanne believes that life is about the time and effort you put into it, but at the same time follow the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid!). She reminds her clients to take advantage of their advantages. For others trying to escape the 9 to 5 Jeanne says, “make the 9 to 5 work for you while infusing your passion into your life. Then make an exit strategy and jump!” Following the guidance of Tony Robbins, Jeanne recommends that anyone thinking about taking the leap find people who are already doing what you want to do and model them. “See them, and create a compelling vision of what that likes for you. Then connect with that feeling every day”. In the words of Richard Bach, “You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true”.
