  • Help Infinite

    I am the best motivational speaker in the world. I create fuel to explode the fire that's already burning inside people. I provide a positive perspective on not just work but also life itself. Be the best you can be, and love every second of it. Life in itself is all perspective. This life is all our own movie. I am going to show you how to love your movie and want to strive for greatness every second you are awake. Every minute you spend awake, you're going to want to better yourself. Make your movie your favorite! My speaking is extremely powerful. My message does occasionally include profanity when it is necessary when driving a point home. My speaking will make you laugh; it will make you cry, but most importantly, I will wake you up! You will want to be great so badly after you hear my words. I have no limitations. I can speak to children under 18 with a PG version. The rated R has much more impact. I have owned three professional companies in my past, and I have been on both sides of the fence of a positive life and a negative life as well. Positive is so much more fun! Hire me, and if you have the time join the session, I'm going to change the lives of everyone who listens!

Thumbtack Spotlight

JLynne Consulting Group, LLC (Jen Croneberger)

(59 reviews)

I remember attending a seminar when I was in my early twenties and spent my time sitting at a desk all day at a company that pretty much "owned" me. At that seminar, I heard a man talk about what it meant to work for himself. That every day you walk through the doors of a building that doesn't have your name on it; you are building someone else's dreams. In that moment, I started to explore what it was that I wanted and felt pulled to do.

Jennifer Croneberger is the CEO of JLynne Consulting Group, LLC and runs a program called the Five Words program. She has been helping corporate clients, academic staff, and students with activities on team-building, team-chemistry seminars, and inspirational speeches.

I believe strongly in communication. I always say that "This is not a drive-by"... I leave my contact info and ability to chat with me long after I have left the event. This is more than just what I get out of the work and payment. This is about affecting real change. It's about the results long after I leave. Whether it's a team-building event, a keynote, or an all-day workshop on getting to our deepest fears, desires, and intentions.

Over almost ten years of extending her expertise to many clients, Jennifer feels that all of her projects are her favorites. This is evidenced by much positive feedback from participants she worked with, coming in forms of emails and thank you letters. Being chosen to speak at TEDx stages for more than once is also a big event for Jennifer.

Learn and experience goal-setting, time-managing, and team-building activities from Jennifer and feel the difference in your life soon.

  1. #1 JLynne Consulting Group, LLC (Jen Croneberger)

    (59 reviews)

    Bethany K.

    Jen spoke to our honor band comprised of 250 students from across the US that was marching in the Thanksgiving Day Parade. From our first contact via email to first phone conversation, she really listened to what we were looking for. It was obvious she wanted to make sure she could meet our needs and wasn't just looking to take the job for money. On site, she was prompt, very friendly and rolled with the punches when hotel AV was less than stellar. She really held the student's attention, was interactive, and I saw tons of them taking notes. Our past speakers have been specific to musician leadership and very high energy bordering on frantic/crazy to keep students' attention. Jen presented lessens more on character and challenging yourself that the students could apply to band and to their personal lives. Her style was well paced and proved you don't have to talk a mile a minute if your message connects. I saw many of them come up and hug her, ask for autographs, and just thank her for making them think differently. We would highly recommend her. Her lessons can be tailored to your needs and everyone will take away something no matter position or age.
