Who is Jen Mac?
What is Jen Mac’s background?
What does Jen Mac offer?
Jen Mac offers in person and online classes and courses; available to women anywhere around the globe who possess solid internet access. Click here for a current list of all of her inspirational offerings.
Who attends Jen Mac’s classes and courses?
Like minded women around the globe, looking to make positive life changes! Women who are open, ready and excited to make positive changes are ideal participants! Since 2003, a little more than 98% of the women in this community have come strictly through word of mouth. They are women open and ready for good things; kind-hearted and seeking connection with other like minded women wanting to grow. They are also women willing and excited to make the investment of time, money and energy in themselves at this point in their lives. Committed to the journey and believers that they can make positive life changes, women range in age from 18 to 88, already awakening on their journey or just beginning. Some are in school, others are stay at home moms or career women. These are the amazing and fabulous women who take Jen Mac’s classes and courses and who comprise the community of “Something Different For Women.”
Who would best be served by a different approach than Jen Mac’s classes and courses?
Women who currently find themselves in a period of either deep anger, anxiety or grief. While we all may find ourselves in any of these places at some point in our lives, this is not the right work or community to best support any of these specific junctures. Although a woman in any of these places today is welcome at another period in her life, prior to then, we encourage you to best love and honor yourself now by finding the right guide, support or community for where you are today! Likewise, women who need and are looking for one on one attention rather than a class setting and community experience would most benefit from a different, more individualized approach. Due to the sheer volume of clients Jen Mac now has 14 years in (along with the fact that Jen is only one) it is no longer humanly possible for her to give individualized attention. There just aren’t enough hours in the day! Therefore, this work is best suited for women who have some type of one on one support already set up in their lives and are now looking for/ready to enjoy a class setting along with being part of a like-minded community of positive, supportive women.
Where does Jen Mac hold her classes and courses?
Jen Mac holds her classes and courses in person in New Jersey…& online via live stream.
When are Jen Mac’s classes and courses offered?
Jen Mac’s classes and courses are offered throughout the year, with some offered only at a specific time each year. Click here for a current list of all of her inspirational offerings.
How far in advance can I sign up for an upcoming class or course?
We begin sign ups for all courses exactly 7 weeks before a class or course begins.
What do I need to do if I want to attend one of Jen Mac’s classes or courses? How do I sign up?
If you wish to sign up for one of Jen’s classes or courses, you will need to first fill out our uniform, one time request form. Once your request form is approved, you will then be guided through the payment process. Once your payment is received, you will have completed your enrollment and officially have a remaining spot reserved!
Why is there a one time request form in order to attend Jen’s classes or courses?
Everyone interested in attending one of Jen’s classes or courses fills out a one time request form before being accepted to attend or participate because on both sides, there is a major investment. On both ends, there is an investment of time, energy and financial commitments. Therefore, we want to be certain that you are a candidate who is in the correct place in your life to truly benefit from what we offer. Otherwise we are wasting your time, energy and money along with ours and all the other participants. Jen does what she does because she is passionate and truly invested in living her best life along with anyone else open to or already on that journey! Therefore, it is more important to us to make sure that you are in the right space and time in your life to truly benefit from what we offer over taking your money. With this process, we can then ensure a safe, supportive and productive environment for everyone, every time!
If I am an O.C.M. (Original Community Member who took a course/courses between 2003-2012) do I still need to fill out the new, uniform, one time request form?
Yes! Everyone fills out our new, uniform, one time request form; both Original Community Members and those completely new to our community.
What is the cost?
Please go to our “Inspirational Offerings” page to learn the current cost/fee for each of our offerings.
What are your payment policies?
All payments are made in full, via e-check, debit or credit card via Paypal and are non-refundable.
Does Jen Mac’s Something Different For Women give back in any way?
Yes! We are excited to share that after much passionate research and great thought, we have chosen two organizations to give 10% of all our pre-tax net proceeds to annually. “Women For Women” and “Global Fund For Women.” We are very excited to help support even more women in this additional capacity.
Can I “gift” my friend/mother/cousin/co-worker a class or course?
We do not allow gifting of any classes or courses as we have found over the span of a decade that while intentions are always good, it rarely works. Since a deep, personal desire, willingness and receptivity is required in order to gain the full benefits of this work, someone not making their own personal investment on every level, including financially, rarely commits fully to the entire experience and process. Therefore, so as not to disrupt the positive flow for all those 100% personally invested and enrolled, gifting is not currently offered.
How often does each course meet? How many times a week or month and for how many weeks or months?
Please go to our “Inspirational Offerings” page to learn how often each course meets for each of our different offerings.
How long is each actual class? How many hours?
Please go to our “Inspirational Offerings” page to learn how long each actual class is for each of our different offerings.
How many women are there in each class or course?
At this time, there is no cap to the size of a class for any of our inspirational offerings.
What can I expect to experience in a class or course?
Lots of positive energy! From the moment you begin your class or course journey, you will feel and experience a lot of positive energy, love, beauty, warmth and openness. All classes and courses are lecture style where you get to listen and then rather frequently, open your notebook for introspective exercises, creating a very interactive experience! These classes are a place where you can reflect and think about yourself, your life, what needs to change and how exactly you can begin to do that. There is also community support; through sharing your individual positive progress, inspiration and/or exciting ideas. You will leave each class with clear concepts, examples of these concepts, how exactly to implement them and assignments to do so. Sometimes assignments are personal, sometimes suggested with a partner. All progress can be shared in between classes in a variety of ways (via systems already put in place for you through email and Facebook) for those who desire the additional good energy and support in between classes!
If I sign up for a class or course, what is the total time commitment involved? Is there homework?
Every single class within every single course we offer is set up to benefit you as much as possible on every level! Therefore, there are always post class assignments so that you can actually step into class ideas in between classes and really make positive changes. There are also built in community systems so that you make connections with other like minded women, feel supported and share your exciting and inspiring progress and growth! While nothing is ever mandatory, it is strongly suggested that in addition to the time you spend attending each class, you also spend somewhere between 1-5 hours per week implementing class ideas through assignments and community connection. Basically though, we encourage you to participate in as much as possible so that you see the positive changes in your life you are desiring to create!
Is my personal contact information needed to be a part of a class or course?
Yes, of course. In order for us to be able to contact you for any number of reasons, contact information is always collected and a class contact sheet, always created. For example, should we ever need to cancel or postpone a class or course, we want to be sure we can easily reach you! Additionally, while we never sell your information to third parties, in order to best support you and create strong community, we may at times partner you up with someone in a class or course to help hold you accountable, do assignments together or simply have someone to share your exciting changes and progress with! This has always been a favorite aspect of our classes, courses and community… and a cornerstone to the way we operate since day one.
How quickly can I expect to see positive changes in myself or in my life?
Positive change can occur both quickly and slowly. This is dependent on many factors. In Jen Mac’s own life she has had times where things turned around very quickly and other times where certain things took several years. She has also seen both situations hundreds of times, in hundreds of clients. What we encourage is for you to trust your own process, knowing that whatever speed positive changes are occurring at, they are happening at the speed best for you and in ways that will best serve you… or else they would be unfolding and happening differently!
Does taking a class or course guarantee me results?
Taking a class or course does not ever guarantee anyone results. As with all things in life, what you put into something is what you will get out of it. There is no magic pill here just like there is no magic pill anywhere with anything (and if someone tells you otherwise, run!) Therefore, it is essential that you put as much of yourself into a class or course as you yourself wish to get out of it! Wanting just a little inspiration? Direction? A reminder? Some new thoughts to float around in your head? Then just show up, listen and trust you’ll absorb enough. Want a lot more? To achieve a specific goal? A full life makeover? Then show up early, take copious notes, do every single assignment and utilize every, single resource. You get the picture 🙂
Can the positive changes I begin to see or make in myself/my life stick? Can I really maintain these positive life changes for the long term?
Absolutely yes! Even so, positive changes do not maintain themselves! Therefore, whether your positive changes are large or small, come quickly or slowly, all of them must be maintained to some degree. This is specifically why we offer an ongoing development and maintenance course that you can attend whenever you may need continual support or a good brush up! This is also why our courses are designed for longer periods of time. Having the built in time within a course to really get the chance to live these lessons week to week, asking questions as they arise, then fine tuning new ways of being for yourself (all with the support of others making changes too), allows you to really create lasting change. This doesn’t mean you must always be in a class or a course! Still it does mean that you begin understanding we can always continue to grow, improve and better our best…at any time or stage in our lives, for the rest of our lives! We only need to be willing to continue on our path when we desire it, enlisting whatever ongoing or occasional brush up/check in support we find ourselves needing.
In addition to the fee for any class or course I sign up for, are there any other additional costs?
Yes! In addition to any class or course fee, you will need to also purchase a notebook of your choosing to utilize for the class or course you are taking as well as one to two additional course materials (i.e. a book, a dvd and/or scrapbook) that will be used as an addendum to the class or course you have signed up for. These necessary course materials will be an additional, total cost of somewhere between $10.00 to $30.00 here in the United States and you will be responsible for purchasing them yourself, prior to starting. (If you are taking a course and are on another continent, materials may run you more. Please look into this in advance if it is a concern for you). Once you have a spot officially reserved via payment and are confirmed through email, in that email you will learn exactly what materials you need to get for your specific class or course.
Are there any guidelines and policies set up for this community?
Yes! In order for any community to thrive and be a safe and positive environment for all, there must be guidelines and policies! We are a community of like minded women who come together to learn, grow, support and make positive life changes. After offering these courses for over a decade, it is very clear to all within this community what is permitted and what is not. Prior to taking any class or course, when filling out your one time request form, all of our Community Policies and Privileges (some already within these FAQS) are clearly outlined there and must be checked off/agreed to before submitting. This is how we continually maintain our amazing, positive, safe and vibrant community!
If I can’t take a class or course now, how can I stay in the loop about future dates?
You can check back here anytime or sign up for our mailing list on the home page (or any page) of this website. Click here to sign up now.
Do you ever offer any classes or courses for men?
We have always been open to classes for men – since the very beginning – in 2003. However, we have not yet ever had enough male inquiry to create a class for men! Even so, please feel free to email us if you are male and interested in a class or course. We can then put you on a list and if/when there is enough interest, contact you.
If I have a success story to share from taking one of your classes or courses, how can I let you know?
We LOVE success stories! In fact, we get so many great emails sharing wonderful outcomes that we now have an email address exclusively for receiving these excellent emails! To share with us any of your exciting progress, terrific success or great news, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If I have an additional question or several questions not found here on your FAQS page, how can I get in touch with someone to answer them for me?
