We had the good fortune of connecting with Jen Salk and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jen, what principle do you value most?
What value matters to you most and why? Vulnerability. I think a lot of people might think of it in a negative way. I believe being vulnerable is so important as it lets you live authentically and allows you to connect with others easier. Over the years, I had a very difficult time sharing my thoughts and feelings and being vulnerable. But once I did I felt a huge shift in my life. I formed deeper relationships, friendships and my business even started growing too. Being an entrepreneur, I have stepped out of my comfort zone and become very vulnerable and I have seen how rewarding it can be. Now, as a mentor I help other like minded entrepreneurs do the same.

I used my social media platforms to tell my story and it really truly helped me in such a positive way. Yes, it was scary to be so raw and vulnerable when I would share a post, but I offered something to my audience that maybe they weren’t getting. I connected with friends on a much deeper level, many of whom I have never met face to face. I reconnected with old friends, made so many new friends who are inspired and moved and even maybe encouraged to do their own healing because of hearing my personal journey.
I want people to be ok talking about going for therapy and or mental illness.

I believe others trust and respect me for my honesty. Yes, it could be scary, but it’s so worth it.
