How far in advance can I sign up for an upcoming class or program?

Currently, this varies. Please email us regarding this if you have a specific question:

What do I need to do if I want to enroll in one of Jen Mac’s programs? How do I sign up?

If you wish to sign up for one of Jen’s programs, you’ll need to first fill out our uniform, 1 time request form. Once your request form is approved, you’ll then be guided through the payment process. Once your payment’s received, you’ll have completed your enrollment & officially have a remaining spot reserved!

Why is there a 1 time request form in order to enroll in Jen’s programs?

Everyone interested in one of Jen’s programs fills out a 1 time request form before being accepted to participate because on both sides, there’s an investment. On both ends, there’s an investment of time, energy & financial commitments. Therefore, we want to be certain this is the right place for you & that you’re a candidate who will truly benefit from what we offer! Otherwise we’re wasting your time, energy & money along with ours & all the other participants. Jen does what she does because she’s passionate & invested in living her best life along with others open to or already on that journey! Therefore, it’s more important to us to make sure you’re in the right space & time in your life to truly benefit from what we offer over taking your time & money. With this process, we can then ensure a safe, supportive & productive environment for everyone!

If I am an O.C.M. (Original Community Member who took a program/programs between 2003-2012) do I still need to fill out the uniform, 1 time request form?

Yes! Everyone fills out our uniform, 1 time request form; both Original Community Members & those completely new to our community.

What do your programs cost?

Everyone fills out a 1 time request form to first ensure our programs are a fit. Once your form’s approved, we then review with you all that’s included in a program, plus its cost.

Please be aware that while our programs are premium, they’re very competitively priced. We’re proud to share that extensive market research & thought were put into each program fee. Therefore, if you research our industry, you’ll quickly notice Jen’s programs have an extremely high value to cost ratio. When determining value, it’s of great importance for you to know how much training & experience a program leader has, how much business they garner word of mouth alone, what kind of successes their clientele experience, how often new content is culled & presented to you in classes or sessions & most importantly, how much access you’ll have to the program leader throughout the program. (Equally, how many clients you’re amongst too.) It’s precisely for all these factors & more that our programs offer exceptional value. Jen has over 17 years experience teaching & coaching as well as almost 30 years of training. Additionally, she’s been 98% word of mouth with consistent waitlists for all her programs since 2003! Jen also creates new, updated content for about 80% of her programs & most importantly, Jen’s programs all happen LIVE with her right there with you, amongst just enough community so you feel connected & supported! Choosing to serve a maximum of 100 women per year too, allows each client to be a genuine V.I.P. In a nutshell, if our pricing’s more than you’re willing or able to invest, we’re not the right fit for you at present.

What are your payment policies?

For all our programs, payments are made in full prior to the start date of any program & made via e-check, debit or credit card via Paypal. All program payments once made, are non-refundable.

Does Jen Mac’s Something Different For Women give back in any way?

Yes! We’re proud to share that seasonally / 4 times per year, we do a pro bono training for a Non-For-Profit or Non-Profit organization lacking a budget for staff development. (Non-For-Profit & Non-Profit organizations both interested & eligible can email us at It’s both a joy & an honor for us to teach, support & inspire even more women in this additional capacity!

Can I “gift” my colleague/friend/cousin a program?

We do not allow gifting of any programs as we found over the span of our first decade that while intentions were always good, it rarely worked. Since a deep personal desire, willingness & receptivity is required to gain the full benefits of this work, someone not making their own investment on every level, including financially, rarely commits to the entire experience & process. Therefore, so as to not disrupt the positive flow for all those 100% invested & enrolled, gifting’s not currently offered.

How often does each program meet? How many times a week or month & for how many weeks or months?

Different programs meet & run for different lengths of time. After you’ve completed the 1 time request form & are approved for a program, we’ll then review with you all the classes, dates & times included in that specific program. Please go to our “Offerings” page to learn about our different offerings.

How long is each actual class? How many hours?

Different programs have different lengths of class time. Again, after you’ve completed the 1 time request form & are approved for a program, we’ll then review with you the length of class time as well as other pertinent information regarding that specific program. Please go to our “Offerings” page to learn about our different offerings.

How many women are there in each class or program?

Different programs have different class sizes. Again, after you’ve completed the 1 time request form & are approved for a program, we’ll then review with you the class size as well as other pertinent information regarding that specific program. Please go to our “Offerings” page to learn about our different offerings.

What can I expect to experience in a program?

Lots of positive energy! From the moment you begin your program journey, you’ll feel & experience a lot of positive energy, love, beauty, warmth & openness. All programs are lecture style where you get to listen & then rather frequently, open your notebook for introspective exercises, creating a very interactive experience! These classes are a place where you can reflect & think about yourself, your life, your career, what needs to change & how exactly you can begin to do that! There’s also often community support; through sharing your individual positive progress, inspiration and/or exciting ideas. You’ll leave each class with clear concepts, examples of these concepts, how exactly to implement them & 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 & Facebook) for those who desire the additional good energy & support in between classes!

If I sign up for a program, what’s the total time commitment involved? Is there homework?

Every single class within every single program is set up to benefit you as much as possible on every level! Therefore, there are always post class assignments so you can actually step into class ideas in between classes & really make positive changes. There are also built in community systems so you make connections with other like minded women, feel supported & share your exciting & inspiring progress & growth! While nothing’s ever mandatory, it’s 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 & 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’re desiring to create!

Is my personal contact information needed to be in a program?

Yes, of course. In order for us to be able to contact you for any number of reasons, contact information’s always collected & a class contact sheet, always created. For example, should we ever need to cancel or postpone a class or program, 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 & create strong community, we may at times partner you up with someone in a program to help hold you accountable, do assignments together or simply have someone to share your exciting changes & progress with! This has always been a favorite aspect of our programs & community…& 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 & slowly. This is dependent on many factors. In Jen Mac’s own life she’s had times where things turned around very quickly & 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’re happening at the speed best for you & in ways that will best serve you…or else they would be unfolding & happening differently!

Does taking a program guarantee me results?

Taking a program does not ever guarantee anyone results. As with all things in life, what you put into something is what you’ll get out of it. There’s no magic pill here just like there’s no magic pill anywhere with anything (& if someone tells you otherwise, run!) Therefore, it’s essential that you put as much of yourself into a program 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 show up, listen & 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 & 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 do our best to offer some type of ongoing program that can be attended whenever you may need continual support or a good brush up! This is also why our programs are ongoing or designed for longer periods of time. Having the built in time within a program to really get the chance to live these lessons week to week, asking yourself certain 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 program! Still it does mean that you begin understanding we can always continue to grow, improve & 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 program I sign up for, are there any other additional costs?

Yes! In addition to any program fee, you’ll need to also purchase a notebook of your choosing to utilize for the program you’re taking as well as 1 to 2 additional program materials (i.e. a book, dvd and/or scrapbook) that will be used as an addendum to the program you’ve signed up for. These necessary program materials will be an additional, total cost of somewhere between $10.00 to $30.00 here in the United States & you’ll be responsible for purchasing them yourself, prior to starting. (If you’re taking a program from another continent, materials may run you more. Please look into this in advance if it’s a concern for you). Once you have a spot officially reserved via payment & are confirmed through email, in that email you’ll learn exactly what materials you need to get for your specific program.

Are there any guidelines & policies set up for this community?

Yes! In order for any community to thrive & be a safe & positive environment for all, there must be guidelines & policies! We’re a community of like-minded women who come together to learn, grow, support & make positive changes. After offering these programs for many years, it’s very clear within this community what’s permitted & what’s not. Prior to taking any program, when filling out your 1 time request form, all of our Community Policies and Privileges (some already within these FAQS) are clearly outlined there & must be checked off/agreed to before submitting. This is how we continually maintain an amazing, positive, safe & vibrant community!

If I can’t take a program 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 programs for men?

We’ve always been open to classes for men – since the very beginning – in 2003. However, we’ve not yet ever had enough male inquiry to create a class for men! Even so, please feel free to email us if you’re male & interested in a program. We can then put you on a list & if/when there’s enough interest, contact you.

If I have a success story to share from taking one of your programs, 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 them! To share with us any of your exciting progress, terrific success or great news, please email us at
