Bio 2- Homeschooling focus
 Jen Hickle started homeschooling her 4 children when we saw that her oldest had substantial learning differences. She knew he wouldn’t thrive in traditional school, so she took the “road less traveled” and hasn’t looked back. Jen has (almost) graduated 3 kids and has just one more to go! She loves encouraging homeschooling parents to teach to their kids’ strengths and learning styles. She has 4 cats and lives in Elk River with her husband, who she loves to have try different foods to see his reaction. You can find their videos on Instagram: @jenhickle.


Bio 3- Business building focus

Jen Hickle has always worked from home– even while homeschooling her 4 kids! She took a side business of teaching piano lessons to a full-fledged music school of 600 students, and then sold that business to coach and to teach other homeschool moms how to work from home and make a stable income. She loves to make people laugh, read books, play piano, and travel. Her favorite afternoon consists of a laptop on her lap, a phone at her side, and a kitty near her feet. Jen is an expert in Clifton Strengths, Myers Briggs, and online marketing. She has been coaching business owners for over 10 years. Jen lives in Elk River with her daughters who are still at home, her cats, and her husband. Find her on Instagram: @jenhickle.com
