What is The Wheelhouse Project?
I’m Jen, the creator and owner of The Wheelhouse Project. It is based on the concept that the wheelhouse is the place where the Captain takes the wheel and pilots the ship. The Captain is in charge of stepping into that wheelhouse and taking it where he/she wants it to go. The wheelhouse is a protective, enclosed quarters on the top of the ship. So it’s my goal to create that protective space for my followers here at The Wheelhouse Project, where they can find the inspiration and take the wheel to steer their own ship (life) in the direction of their dreams.
Wheelhouse is also a term meaning that you have a certain skill or ability. So it’s “in your wheelhouse”. That is also a goal of mine here at The Wheelhouse Project. To give you more tools and information to really help create a strong wheelhouse, or ‘life toolbox’, for you!
The bottom line is that at The Wheelhouse Project we want to provide you with inspiration to help you live a happy and fulfilled life. That includes every area of your life, and any changes that may be needed. It’s about love, inspiration, freedom and empowerment.
I have personally struggled with finding these things in my own life, and I feel inspired to share a bit of my own journey and what I’ve learned along the way. Figuring out who you are, loving yourself unconditionally, and really taking charge of your own life are huge things. It can be challenging and even painful to make changes or to face unpleasant realities in our lives or about ourselves. When we are doing so in an effort to make our life better, easier, more fun, and really take control – it makes it so worth it. Always keep your eye on the goal. Keep the vision of how you want your life to be, and strive for it. You will get there. Anchors away!
Who am I and why am I blogging?
Here’s a little bit about me:
- I am a seeker with a curious and open mind
- I follow my intuition and signs along the way
- I read a lot, almost always non-fiction
- My passions are writing, teaching, and coaching
- I started writing a book and ended up writing a blog
- I have been managing people in the corporate environment for many years. I teach, train and coach people in leadership positions
- I have a deep need to help people through my work, so please comment when you can to let me know if something resonated with you, or for that matter if there is something you’d like to see more of here on this site
It’s Time to Set Sail
So what do I want for you here? I want you to find some inspiration. To make some changes in your life if needed, both big and small. But mostly I hope you will change your life for the better in whatever way you need to. That might mean getting out of a bad relationship or bad relationship patterns in your life, that might mean starting to explore what you are passionate about and taking the first steps toward creating a new career for yourself, or that might mean making an effort to take better care of yourself or even really stepping up and setting big fitness goals. Whatever it is, big or small, I want you to find something here that is helpful. Something that makes you think. Something that inspires you to take some action. And also to feel and know that you aren’t alone.
