Love Incorporated: The Business of Doing What You Love will show you how to overcome the unique challenges involved in creating a life doing what you love. In the book, Jennifer describes how she discovered her life mission and took a Leap of Faith. She quit her high paying job as a Software Developer and pursued her true calling. She thought she had displayed such great courage to follow her Heart, so she was surprised to discover that things did not flow very well! Everything she discovered could be summarized by the Four Key Insights that make up this book. These insights are a guide to creating a business (and life) doing what you love! You don’t need to sacrifice your passion, Spirit or Integrity to have an abundant business.
I used to feel depressed every single day of the work week. I dreaded Mondays and felt like my job was a prison sentence. My Heart was telling me one thing but my mind craved security. I was afraid that if I pursued what I really wanted to do, I wouldn’t make ends meet. It was hard to contemplate leaving a secure job (no matter how bored I was!) Everyone has a dream. The subtle voice of the heart is always urging people to follow their passion. But why are people so often disappointed when they pursue what they love? Why is it so often a struggle to make ends meet?
When I finally quit my job to pursue my true passion, I was under the false impression that I would be rewarded with instant success. But in reality, I struggled with the lack of security and lack of funding. I was very surprised that things did not flow very well. And I certainly did not anticipate the sheer amount of challenges I would face. Through many “learning experiences” (i.e., mistakes!), I finally discovered how to be successful while following my true calling. It only took 13 years!
In my new book, I address the unique challenges when creating a career doing what you love. I made a lot of “mistakes” and through all of my trial and error, I noticed that I kept on coming back to the core truths over and over again. The people who love their job, seem to be the “lucky ones” – the few and far between who have managed to integrate their passion and their pocketbook.” -Jennifer

About the Author
Jennifer graduated from Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo, CA) with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science and a Minor in Philosophy. After graduation, she started her first job as a Software Engineer at a big company in San Diego. Like so many people, she felt incredibly trapped and depressed at a job that paid the bills but didn’t speak to her passion in life. I constantly suffered from “a case of the Mondays,” this weighty sense of foreboding at the beginning of each work week.
Even though she was incredibly bored at her day job, she started pursuing her true passion at night: massage school! She studied massage at the International Professional School of Bodywork, Esalen Institute in Big Sur, and the Maui Academy of Healing Arts.
While working on people, she started to feel the “energy fields” emanating from people. She became fascinated by energy healing and studied various energy healing modalities including Reiki.She met Richard Gordon, the founder of Quantum-Touch, at his lecture on Maui. She fell in love with the vision of Quantum-Touch and received a very clear message from the Universe that Quantum-Touch was her true calling. Shortly after she met Richard, she quit her job and took a Leap of Faith. She finally followed her Heart. She took over as CEO of Quantum-Touch in June 2002. When you are following your Heart, doors will open almost magically.
She has dedicated her life work to helping people discover the healing power of their Love. She strives to integrate spirituality and business by implementing business practices that include spiritually rewarding jobs, loving spiritual service to the world, environmental responsibility, and financial abundance. Quantum-Touch has grown from a small United States company to an international Corporation with a community of over 50,000 people. Connect with Jennifer on Twitter.
