Movers and Shakers


Jen Harrison Talks Athletic Therapy with New York Times Best-selling Author and Chicken Soup for the Soul co-creator, Jack Canfield

As many of you know, in addition to publishing my first book, Stressed Self to Best Self™: A Body Mind Spirit Guide to Creating a Happier and Healthier You earlier this year, I also wrote, what ended up being an Editor’s Choice Award winning chapter called Overcoming Overwhelm for the international best-seller The Soul of Success, Volume 1, with Jack Canfield. I recently went to Hollywood to receive a Quilly® Award from the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors® for being part of the book. I had a chance to not only meet Jack Canfield, but to be one of 22 people interviewed by him as part of a show that will be aired in the new year on Bravo and A&E affiliates in the US.

During our interview, while we were off camera, he asked me what an athletic therapist is (how many times have we all been asked that question? I’m glad I had my patented answer ready!) and then he shared that, years ago, he had fractured his left tibial plateau in a skiing accident. I wish we had had more time talk but it was such an honor to meet him in person (he’s as lovely and genuine as everyone says he is) and to be part of his book.

Although I had known about the Chicken Soup for the Soul books for years, it was really Jack’s The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be that he wrote with Janet Switzer in 2005 (the 10th anniversary edition was released earlier this year) that really got me onto Jack Canfield and it has helped to change my life in many ways and still does. I just wanted to share that with you because whether your goal is to have a successful clinic, be a best-selling author or compete in your first triathlon, the principles he outlines will help get you there faster.

To Your Best Self!
