Jill Cabrinha Colley

“Working with Jennifer allowed me to gain tremendous insight into my personality through using the Enneagram profiler tool. She helped me understand how my particular style of dealing with stress may be affecting my lack of motivation to jump with two feet into my new business. It was fascinating to go through the test with her and be told I was the EnneaType 9 Peacemaker.  She helped me see where my challenge in moving ahead stems from the fear of failure — and the role perfectionism plays in my self-doubt. Knowing this about myself it helpful and will help me work with obstacles along the way to making changes.

“Jennifer has a very calming style, which puts one at ease. In addition, her knowledge of the subject matter is clear. She provides multiple examples to help one visualize and understand the Enneagram concepts. I felt heard and our work together gave me great insights to go forward in my business.”
Kathleen Cronin, Educator and Activist for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)

“I came to the coaching sessions with Jennifer distressed about not being able to achieve enough in my work as a volunteer advocate. I was ending most days unsatisfied with what I had accomplished or not done. Nothing was good enough. I struggled with anxiety and frustration seemingly every day. With the tool of Enneagram, Jennifer showed me how my sytle in life and work are a symptom of a framework I can transform. My life expresses who I am at the deepest level. As EnneaType Onethe Perfectionist/Reformer — I am a task-master and not kind enough to myself. To begin feeling better I needed to use tools she gave me to settle into my body, something my EnneaType especially needs. These tools have changed the way I live each day. I am easier on myself and ending the majority of my days with a sense of calm satisfaction. My new motto is progress, not perfection. Having Jennifer re-introduce me to my deepest self, has allowed me to embrace who I am at the core, and let others be who they deeply are. Thank you, Jennifer, for a new beginning at 70.”

“It has been my privilege to participate in a professional support consortium developed and maintained by Jennifer Manlowe. With her guidance and that of the group, I was able to move beyond the limited results of my unconscious actions by increasing my awareness, especially of what was working, and by setting goals that agreed with my infinite potential as a spiritual being. My business experienced more growth during that time than at any other. Jennifer possesses a brilliant and sensitive mind, making her easy on the soul, yet effective at keeping me on my feet instead of my butt! I’ve never seen anyone’s heart and head work together so effortlessly. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone who desires to increase their professional satisfaction.” ~ Nancy Ballew, Visual Artist/Set Designer

“Jennifer, I have so much fun with you, brainstorming different ways to turn my writing into sites for income. We generated so many possibilities that I just hated for our time to end. I am so glad we met and feel so blessed to have your unique gifts working to guide me for publishing what’s next.” ~ Lacey

“Jennifer is highly responsive, intuitive, and personable. In two 45 minute sessions with Jennifer, I saw substantial results, which continue to increase my effectiveness at work and in my personal life. I feel more grounded, present, and in my reality than I did before meeting with Jennifer. I plan to work with her again in the future. I highly recommend Jennifer for life coaching.” ~ Jenilee Finley, CFE & Senior Auditor at U.S. Customs and Border Protection

“I am so delighted to have experienced your loving and wise guidance. The book coaching you provided me was perfect. I love the poems and philosophical quotes you shared with me – and even encouraged me to steal from you – and the beautiful thoughtfulness and perceptive methods you provided. As you must know by now, I am sometimes shy when faced with your vibrant presence so I am not sure if I expressed my gratitude as fervently as I felt it. Thank you so much. I value, love, and respect your approach to book coaching and your sensitivity to my style and my pace.” ~ Saundra

“Jennifer is an amazingly insightful and creative person who has helped me in so many ways. An honest listener, speaking with her is to really be part of a heartfelt dialogue that almost always leads to new discoveries about myself. With her guidance and helpful goading, I am finally moving in the right direction for my career and my life, while facing what, until her help, I saw as insurmountable obstacles. Through her patient counsel, writings, and revealing exercises, Jennifer has shown me how to fight RESISTANCE, to honor the parts of myself that I have ignored or denied for much of my adult life, and to how move toward that life that I want and deserve, the life that the universe wants from me.” ~ V. Cosby, Cosby Ventures LLC

“I am elated with my new online presence! Thank you so much for your guidance, depth and vision! Blessings to you.” ~ Kitt Mathisen, Touchstones: Spiritual Direction on Bainbridge Island

Sandra Paulsen, PhD

“In the time I spent with Jennifer, I learned a lot about the enneagram, what type I am, what my “wings” are, and where I go under stress and where things are going well.  She was articulate and concise in her explanations, and it helped me understand where I have excelled and where my shadow might have affected my progress.  All in all, a most enjoyable time!” – Sandra Paulsen, Ph.D., author and illustrator of Looking Through the Eyes of Trauma and Dissociation and When There Are No Words

Kerry Turner, Life Coach, Author, Speaker and Kerry Cannava Coaching

“Thank you for being such a great partner in this creation. You’ve been such a great editor that draws the truth out of me time and time again! More than once you’ve reminded me: “We are as sick as our secrets.” ~ Kerry Cannava Turner Coaching

“I cannot believe where I was a year ago and where I am today because of our work together. These past 18 months have whizzed by. Who knew that my random ideas could come together so clearly and powerfully? Thanks so much for mentoring me and getting that workbook out of me somehow.” ~ Ally

“If you’re thinking of hiring Jennifer, know this, she is no ordinary ‘Coach,’ she’s more like a midwife who pulls out that book you have inside of you and helps you share it with the world. She’s not interested in my publishing history, she’s most curious about my current passions and turning my dreams of becoming an author into reality. I promise you, if you want to publish your own work, you won’t be disappointed. Manlowe WILL get you to complete what you say you want to do.” ~ Deanna

“Thanks so much, Jennifer! I am so grateful to have you in my life as my clarity coach and to be able to have these earth shattering kaboom life sessions with you!” ~ Leigh, Turner Broadcasting System

“I would describe our work as just what I needed—an intensive brainstorming session on how to turn my journal into a Spiritual Memoir. You are clearly someone who has experience as an author, publisher and book marketer. You also have a keen mind, and a talent for remaining laser-like as a coach. You’ve helped me see “outside the box” that I have created for myself. I would highly recommend you to anybody that’s tired of playing it safe.” ~ Deb

“Jennifer is an excellent speaker. She offers up her knowledge and expertise with clarity and grace. Her book publishing and marketing seminars are truly enjoyable!” ~ Kelsly

“Jennifer, I so appreciate this opportunity to work (and walk!) with you. I am so lucky to have found you and know I would not be this far along with my writing if it weren’t for you. You really are a remarkable person in so many ways and I’m so excited to have finally walked through those things that have stopped me in my past.” ~ Robinette

“I liked best your inviting me to invent myself as a writer by practicing online first (by blogging). By working with you, I found a way to make sense of my schedule to allow more time to write—and, as you know, I’m a single mom! Thank you so much for helping me write in ways that are as strong as they are clear.” ~ Courtney

“Jennifer, you’re so inspiring, motivating, and encouraging. I would recommend working with you to anyone who is sick of just accepting the rest of the world’s mentality that you’ve got to publish with a major press or you’ll never become a best selling author. Look at your colleague, Patrick Snow! At your Author-Publishing Institute, you two gave me so many resources and ideas on how to market and use social media to promote myself as a writer. Before working with you, I found networking and sharing myself publicly to be something I would never feel comfortable doing.” ~ Jan

“Dr. Manlowe, by far, you are the best teacher, the best coach, I’ve ever had in my life – and, I promise you, I’ve had a lot! Still, no one has ever taken me as far as you have taken me in my goals to be a best-selling author. I am so grateful for you!” ~ Louisa


Praise for Manlowe’s Books


Polishing the Mirror

“I’m so excited after reading the first half of Polishing the Mirror: 90 Days to Creative Clarity after I got it in the mail this morning. I love it! It’s such a great fit for me. Dr. Manlowe takes really big concepts and puts them into something all of us can comprehend. We get to see the Socratic method in poetic action in ways that help people be who they are meant to be. This book helps readers get clarity about their lives and calling. It’s hard not to skip ahead in the book because the creative exercises are so helpful and doable!” ~ Ashley Zupan, dōTERRA Entrepreneur

Loving Life As It Is

“We are especially fortunate to have Dr. Jennifer Manlowe with us on our journey in becoming more whole, compassionate people for both ourselves and others. In candidly sharing her own experiences, such as she expresses in Loving Life As It Is, her words inspire us to create positive changes in our lives and our worlds. Manlowe’s brilliance and sheer breadth of knowledge could easily overwhelm or condescend. Rather, she approaches what may be the unfamiliar concept or theory with great humility. With loving personal warmth and humor and an unusual eye toward living life practically, she leaves the reader feeling as though they have been honored with a personal treasure. And they have. Her literature is on my bookshelf next to those feminist authors I read and re-read for their grounding wisdom. Manlowe’s is a uniquely moving and focused voice that women, and men, urgently need, particularly in these uncertain times.” ~ Sue Di Paola, M.S.C., J.D.

Faith Born of Seduction

“What a difficult read! And yet, I recommend your book, Faith Born of Seduction, to every person concerned with their weight and religious heritage. Who knew these issues could be related to physical and sexual abuse in our pasts? Thank you so much for letting each one of these women’s stories be told.” ~ Sister Jae

Sound View

“Jennifer, thanks so much for sending me your book, Sound View: 365 Writing Prompts to Change Your Outlook on Life. It is now part of my regular daily writing routine. I appreciate your encouragement in so many ways. Thanks, too, for facilitating our monthly Saturday retreat of women wanting to learn how to use the internet. Finally, thanks for bringing your other books—I sent them off in the mail today and hope my friends find them as inspiring and helpful as I did. Bless you and your many gifts.” ~ Mac

“I picked up your book, Sound View: A Writer’s Journal, at my doctor’s office and was delighted to find it online so I could order two copies, immediately! Besides the drop-dead-wonderful content—your format is great for anyone who wants to write or create a visual journal—the blank space for thinking, projecting, writing or painting is INSPIRED. Hope to meet you very soon, perhaps at one of your upcoming publishing seminars. Best of luck with this motivational and functional (rare qualities together) book!!!” ~ Dorothy M.

“I’m so thrilled to return to my writing with the prompts from your book Polishing the Mirror. You’ve provided me a way to visualize my life with success, purpose and meaning. I feel open and excited to learn what’s next and, in the mean time, enjoy what is here.” ~ AnnMarie

Cracking Up

“I swear to God, I laughed, I cried, I almost peed my pants at one point. Your book Cracking Up: Notes from A Good Girrrl Gone Bad was full of so many ideas that I could relate to that it was scary. You’ve inspired me to finally put pen to paper to write my own memoir as a Jungian psychologist. Thank you so much!” ~ Dannel
