Nearly two decades of experience in sports broadcasting means Jen has been talking about balls (and other sports equipment) with well-known athletes the rest of us only dream of having a few moments with.

The new book is already flooded with praise from the likes of NFL sideline reporters Erin AndrewsPam OliverAlex Flanagan, and Laura Okmin, as well as NFL Pro-Bowlers Bobby Wagner, Kam Chancellor, and Doug Baldwin (who also provided the foreword).

Jen’s humorous, no-nonsense approach to career development is refreshing and accessible to readers of all backgrounds. Unlike others who might shy away from the big topics, Jen challenges sacred cows and the most common excuses in chapters like, “Does This Make My Bias Look Big?” and “Sexism Versus Poor Communication Skills.”

What makes this book different? Jen’s access to professional athletes provides a unique and interesting perspective – with lots of direct stories from her interactions (including an answer to the common “What’s it really like in the locker room?” question, and the story of how she wound up with her very own Super Bowl ring). Her approach leads to a fun, engaging, and interesting read, with practical tips that demonstrate how strong communication skills set the stage for career development opportunities in any field.

But don’t take our word for it, listen to Seahawks Pro-Bowler Doug Baldwin, who says: “You’re not always going to know what to say, and sometimes what you say won’t come out right, but if you use the techniques Jen demonstrates in the book you’ll be well on your way to communicating more effectively, becoming an Influential Conversationalist and finding new ways to lead.”
