SPHERE for
Young Adults & College Students

Adulting? What the hell? Ok now that you not a teenager anymore aren’t you supposed to have life figured out now? When we are teens we can’t wait to be adults, even in college, we can’t wait to get out. Now we are in our twenties, we have jobs, bills, responsibilities…crap! Long gone are summer vacations, now it is work, hanging with friends from college (if they haven’t moved away), and adulting.

Are you overwhelmed, concerned, frustrated, or any other variation regarding adulting? Maybe you are up for your first promotion and you don’t know how to ask for a raise? Maybe you moved to a new city and making friends isn’t as easy as it was when you were in school (it never is)? Maybe you have had a job for a couple of years, but it just isn’t fulfilling? Maybe the relationship you have been in for a few years isn’t going the way you thought?

SPHERE Education can help, we teach you to be a brain owner. We teach you how your brain works, give you the tools to be, do and have everything you want in life.

Testimonials
  • Jenn Marshall taught me so many valuable lessons that will stick with me for the rest of my life. She taught me how to truly be a great friend and what type of people I want to surround myself with in order to be in a positive environment. She would call it “weeding your friend garden”, which just meant to have people in your life that truly care for you as much as you care for them. She also taught me to own who I am and the great qualities that set me apart from the rest of the world. If there was ever such a thing as a guardian angel, it would be her. read more

  • There are things I am wary of. T-shirts with political candidates faces on them worn either sincerely or ironically, any sort of celebrity endorsing products because it’s insidious and plays on our most base instincts. Endorsements and advertisements themselves just strike me as odd because they appear very extrinsically motivated and kind of dishonest and I really want nothing to do with them. As the late author David Foster Wallace puts it, ads and or endorsements or testimonials, “create an anxiety relievable by purchase.” But all of that principled, not going to be a sucker for somebody’s product or like stump for their campaign, I didn’t even register that when Jenn asked me to write a testimonial for the site. It seemed obvious that everyone should know about Jenn Marshall and the thing she does. read more

  • Before I began working with Jenn, I was doing fine. I was in school, taking classes and doing well. I had withdrawn and stopped going a couple times before finally deciding that I needed to just go and get it done. That was about it; that was my life. School was just something that kept me going and was a means for me to get a job in the future that I could support myself with. I suppose it wasn’t all bad. I had at least chosen to major in something that I knew I would enjoy, but even so, it felt pretty…. blah? I wanted to be a nurse. OK great, but was that really it? I couldn’t really figure out why something still felt wrong—missing. Majoring in nursing was what I wanted, so why wasn’t it resonating with me? It must have been obvious that I was feeling a bit lost because a family friend introduced me to Jenn. He told me, “She knows some good nursing programs and would maybe have some helpful ideas to share with you.” Boy, oh boy, was that the understatement of the century!

    It has been over two years since I first started working with Jenn. I have never felt so driven, settled, and content with myself and my life. The feeling that I was missing something has now been replaced with a palpable excitement for my life and all it holds. I am not going to be “just a nurse”. I will be an advocate for all the patients I meet. I will bring a positive, genuine, and compassionate energy to all those who need it. Before Jenn, the part of myself that believed she could do anything she dreamt of doing was asleep. Now…that innocent childhood feeling of believing that I can reach for the stars instead of only reaching for the clouds has finally returned. It is time to go after that Master’s degree, that PhD, that “whatever-makes-you-feel-happy-and-alive”!

    Being around Jenn is quite an experience, and honestly, kind of hard to explain unless you’ve experienced it for yourself. No matter what mood you’re in, you’re almost instantly relaxed when you start talking to her. Her calm and happy emotions transfer to you and you feel light and happy. Through working with Jenn, I have now been given the tools to be the source of my own light and happiness without needing it from the outside. She has introduced me to versions of myself that I thought couldn’t exist, but there they were…. waiting quietly until I was ready to meet them.

    The “me” today, well she just graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and will be attending the accelerated BSN program at Anschutz Medical Campus. The “me” tomorrow will be a Doctor of Midwifery with her own practice, bringing human beings into a world full of health and happiness. The “me” of forever, well…. she will always be thankful that Jenn cared enough to awaken the “me” that was waiting to change the world. We all have that “me” inside of us. We all have the power to live our very best life and fulfill all our biggest dreams, sometimes we just need to be reminded of that power. Jenn makes us aware of that power and gives us the tools to take control and responsibility of our own lives so that we can hold on through the ups and downs, while loving the entire ride!

    I will never be able to fully explain just how amazing of a human being Jenn is, nor how thankful I will always be to have known her. All I can really do is live the life I want; live the life I am so excited for a life I only ever hoped for, but one that I am now living. Jenn, thanks for the knowledge, guidance, care, and compassion. Thanks for everything. read more

  • When I started working with Jenn about a year ago, I felt directionless and powerless in my own life. I was working a job that had nothing to do with me and I spent my time sulking around. With Jenn’s help, I started working on a plan to get where I want to be in life. I’m still not there, and I won’t be for a while, but Jenn has given me the tools I need to stay motivated, believe in myself, and be content with my life in the meantime. She’s helped me become a more positive, more functional version of myself.

    Perhaps most important of all is that, while I know Jenn has helped me greatly, I don’t feel like somebody else has been telling me what to do. I don’t feel that the path I’m on now is one established by somebody else. Even though I’m more positive and different in many ways from a year ago, I don’t feel like I’m pretending to be somebody who I am not. Rather, I’m just making progress to become the version of myself that I desire to be; Jenn’s methods of becoming aware of myself on several different levels were a fantastic first step on this ongoing journey.

    I don’t know what difference the next year will make, but I do know that I will have made even more progress toward my goals and that I will continue to grow. I’m grateful for Jenn’s help this past year, and I’m so much more confident about my life looking forward.
