Episode 199: How Jen Turned Her Love for Travel into a Full-time Career | Jen Ruiz | Jen on a Jet Plane

Jen Ruiz is a lawyer turned full-time travel writer, public speaker, and digital entrepreneur. She is a 5-time Amazon bestselling author, 3-time TEDx speaker and multi award-winning travel journalist. She has been featured by The Washington Post, Forbes and ABC News and is the solo female traveler behind Jen on a Jet Plane.

You can follow Jen on Instagram and TikTok.

Episode 199 Highlights:

  • Life before entrepreneurship— Jen shares her journey on what her life was like prior to becoming a full time travel entrepreneur working as a lawyer.
  • Why she decided to quit her 9-5— Listen to Jen as she talks about why she decided working in the law world was no longer sitting right in her spirit and why she decided to walk away from a lucrative full time career to pursue other interests.
  • WE LOVE SOLO TRAVELING!— Jen and Jannese share their experiences around solo traveling and how it has completely changed their lives in the best way possible. Let this be the reminder you needed to hear… BOOK THE TRIP, SIS!
  • Travel hacking tips– Jen shares on how she learned how to travel and not break the bank at the same time. Lots of gems are dropped, mi gente. Take some notes!📝
  • How she became a full time travel entrepreneur— Blogging changed the trajectory of Jen’s life and career. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, y’all… STAR THE DAMN BLOG! (and sign up for the Jump Start Your Blog Bootcamp to get started😉)
  • And more!

This conversation was incredibly inspiring and motivating AF to be apart of. We talked about entrepreneurship, career advice, travel hacking, mindset shifts and everything in between. We love how Jen gives us unapologetic permission to EVOLVE.

So many of us, especially as Latinas, fall victim to staying in one lane and following the path of life created by what other people expect out of us, especially familia. It’s so refreshing to see a fellow Latina (and Boricua🇵🇷) create her own life plan and doing so with ZERO F*CKS GIVEN. We LOVE to see it! Gracias amiga!
