Jane’s Professional Bio
Knowing her life would change forever when the children left home, Jane Inch realized it was time for her to take a look at the rest of her life. She decided she would bypass the “midlife” stigma and create something to support her passions, dreams and inner vision. Jane knew she didn’t want to suddenly wake up to an “empty nest” and not know what’s next. So, she rolled up her sleeves and went to work to create a lifestyle design company that specializes in empowering the modern day woman to redefine midlife.
Entrepreneurship, creativity and business savvy have always been a huge part of Jane’s life. She was born into a family business, and then married into a family business. Because of this, she has been involved and interested in marketing and communications throughout her adult life. Jane has always been a natural connector and she developed an early interest in social media. She has always been involved in women’s groups and loves meeting new people and helping them connect with others. She easily and effortlessly developed a flair for social media marketing and is often sought after for her expertise in this area.
A Bay Area native and graduate of UC Berkeley, Jane began her career in corporate event planning and later moved to real estate sales. Although successful, while selling real estate she never truly felt in her heart this was where she really belonged or wanted to be. She’s the first to say she felt like she was a put into a box by other people’s expectations of her. She stepped out of the real estate business to focus on raising her two sons, now 19 and 21. She’s been extremely involved in fundraising for numerous Bay Area philanthropies and supports many women’s organizations. She has a special place in her heart for the Junior League of San Francisco, where she obtained her most valuable “on the job training” as a volunteer. She also understands the importance of staying involved in activities that feed the soul.
Her lifelong interest in personal development led her to become a certified yoga instructor in 2004 through Piedmont Yoga Studio’s 18-month teacher training program led by Rodney Yee. Her yoga practice, extensive studies of alternative wellness techniques coupled with her business savvy, add to her multi-dimensional talents as a coach and Inner Stylist.
Jane enrolled in the highly respected Coaches Training Institute in 2006 and earned the designation of Certified Professional Co-Active Coach. She is also a graduate of their 10-month Co-Active Leadership program. She is also a Certified Dream Coach through Dream University. Jane has invested in high-level mastermind groups and coaching to continually expand her expertise and has also learned new trends in marketing both online and offline. She has been a member of Business Coach Ali Brown’s Millionaire Protege Club and has been coached personally by Marcia Wieder (coach to Jack Canfield). She has completed a number of personal development programs over the years and trained with many innovative thought leaders.
Jane loves hiking, skiing, yoga, traveling, dining out at hip, energetic places with friends, experiencing new adventures and mostly watching her teenage sons play sports. She can often be found with family and friends revealing her inner rockstar with serious karaoke nights at home!
She’s taken a proactive role in creating a life that supports her and honors her passions- and she’s ready to help you do the same. She is passionate about helping savvy, modern women discover their inner brilliance and create lives that they love and businesses that thrive. She’s particularly gifted in helping others find clarity to launch the next big thing in their life, on their terms.
