Make Sh*t Happen: Course Details
Take your big dream from nice idea to inevitable success
“At first, dreams seem impossible, then improbable, and eventually inevitable.”
Are you tired of getting “the jealousies” when you see your friends, peers and colleagues doing “that thing” that you wish you could go after, like writing a book, running a marathon, starting a blog, losing weight or eliminating your debt?
Are you are tiptoeing around a big change in your life but feel terrified to take action?
Discover the exact steps and tools that have helped hundreds of people accomplish their biggest goals
Make Sh*t Happen is a 10-week comprehensive get-your-butt-in-gear-course designed to give you the tools, resources, structure, accountability and support you need to go after and accomplish your biggest, scariest goal.
No games, no fluff, no over-hyped promises — just real, road-tested advice that will take you from tip-toeing around a “nice” idea to digging in and making major headway on whatever you’ve got in mind.
And it isn’t all just about achieving the goal. It is the consistent feeling of triumph from busting through your upper limits and declaring to the world that you are capable of so much more than you previously thought.
And doing that over and over again.
In Make Sh*t Happen I share a fun, motivating step-by-step process for achieving anything you want, that you can implement over and over in your life.
“I really knew very little about this course before I signed up. But I realized that I have had dreams of new pursuits that were just that — dreams. Every step along the way — creating our support network, writing our vision statements, creating accountability — made the journey more and more tangible. While I still have a long way to go to complete my goals, I am so much more confident that I can do it and that it will happen that it almost feels inevitable. I can’t say enough how much Jenny and her course have helped me!”

How You’ll Learn: About the Format
I am committed to making sure you walk away with absolutely everything you need to Make Sh*t Happen, in a format that works for you. As you move through the course, you’ll check activities off that you complete, and you can return to the course any time after it ends to revisit the material.
During each of the 10 weeks, I’m asking you to set aside 1-2 hours to:
You’ll also receive lifetime membership to the MSH Alumni group so you can get ongoing support, feedback, and continuing making awesome new connections even after the course ends.
“I am one of those people who is a straight laced and risk-averse, yet have ideas locked up in my head that I know would make me insanely happy. I have a Google Spreadsheet of ideas that has haunted me for years, and I was sick of adding to it and not crossing anything off.
This course forced me to stop thinking and start acting. I was skeptical that I could actually have results from it that would be noticeable after 10 weeks, but to my surprise (and complete delight), I’ve been able to fast-track my ideas into actions that have put me significantly closer to reaching my goals. It isn’t an easy class, and it’s not one you can breeze through. If you do the work though, it will definitely force you to take action on your ideas.”
What You’ll Learn: A Week-by-Week Course Overview
|Week 1: Declare your dream – choose your juiciest goal. Dig deep and find the courage to commit to working on this for the next 10 weeks. Gain the freedom that comes with finally declaring your big hairy goal and putting words to that nagging idea in the back of your mind. And the elatement and excitement that follows.|
|Week 2: Build a support network – line up a group of people who can cheer you on and help hold you accountable. Tell at least ONE person you are working on this goal. You will no longer be going at things on your own or wondering if you are the only person who is “doing something crazy.” Through your support team, you will gain an instant support circle to help give you feedback and encouragement, and to help you stay motivated and on track.|
|Week 3: Uncover your vision and purpose – take it up a level and look at the big picture of your life – what do you stand for? What is most important to you? Create a compass that you will use to propel you and the goal forward, even beyond the goal itself.|
|Week 4: Bulldoze your barriers – identify and bust through any fears or barriers that are stopping you from working on this goal. Contrary to popular belief, your fears can actually help motivate you instead of holding you back. We’ll break them down, analyze them and send them to the sidelines — so you can move forward unencumbered, with tactics to diffuse them when new fears resurface.|
|Week 5 – Break – based on feedback from past participants, we’ve built in a break to make sure you have time to get caught-up and put the systems in place to carry you through the end of the course.|
|Week 6: Take ACTION – make a plan and start making progress! No more stewing, spinning or pondering. You won’t be able to hide or push off your big dream any longer — it’s action time. You will make actual progress and start making sh*t happen!|
|Week 7: Grind it out – put in the time and work to start turning your vision, ideas and project plan into a reality.|
|Week 8: Survive the dip – recognize the dip when you see it and emerge stronger on the other side. We all hit a point when our fears creep back in or the task seems too much at times. This is when we used to give up — but you will not be going down that road again. You will learn lessons, tips and tricks to help you get out of your own way and survive any dip whether it comes at week 8 or week 28. Learn how to actually celebrate the dip and leverage it as a sure sign of progress.|
|Week 9: Celebrate – acknowledge your progress and ditch any “success demons” that crop up. No more glossing over your wins — big or small. Celebration and reflection is a critical part to keep you moving forward and together we will share our successes along the way.|
|Week 10: Post-course follow-up – learn how to stay motivated and maintain your momentum moving forward. It’s easy to take action when you are going through a course, but this is a life movement. And I’m going to give you all of the tools you need to keep making sh*t happen long after the course ends to keep expanding your snowball of success.|

“Throughout my career, I’ve done a great job making OTHER people’s dreams happen, but when it came to my own, I kept getting stuck. This course empowered me with a ton of great tools and exercises to blast through the fear, get excited, and connect with people to help!”—Katie S.
What does the course cost?
I know I’ve built an amazing course that has already changed lives — perhaps that sounds a bit arrogant, but I only say that because of the amazing results I’ve seen with the students in this class. They have made enormous progress on their goals AND their larger thought patterns.
MSH grads and their goals range from people who joined the Peace Corps in Ethiopia, to those who lost significant weight (80 pounds and counting!) to others who quit their jobs to grow their side hustle into full-time businesses — everything from baking pies to coaching to creating designer furniture.
Whatever your big desire is, this program will give you the support and tools you need to make it happen.
Want proof that you can achieve your goals too? Here are a few things former MSH grads have to accomplished during the course and beyond:
- Devin Termini lost 85 pounds and is now embarking on a cross-country tour featuring people for his new endeavor: Crossfit Changed My Life
- Lora K. wanted to “figure out what’s next” and ended up joining the Peace Corps in Ethiopia
- Ben was featured in the newspaper for his coffee-shop coaching
- Erin quit her full-time job to launch her lighting business, Sugarbird Studio
- Melani is blogging at Huffington Post and released an ebook about Career Switches
- Nick White is building an entire company (and book) around his cancer experience
- Inna launched an incredible art website
- Melissa launched her second ebook, How to Land a Job: Secrets from an HR Insider
- Ben Edwards and Shannyn Allen spoke at FINCON, a financial conference for bloggers
- Shannyn launched her first product, Rockstar Blogging
- Emily quit her job, started her Authentically Social business and was featured in a Kentucky newspaper
- Ryan stepped into video production with no experience; less than a year later he won an international video competition
- Esther launched her Vegan Lifestyle Coaching and Consulting business, and is currently working and blogging at A,B,C,Vegan
- …and lots more from the dozens of other grads who have taken the course
Before we get into the numbers, let’s recap what you get:
- A new lesson each week that addresses exactly what you need to know to move forward
- Dozens of case studies of others who share their ups, downs and lessons learned
- Audios, videos and the 100 page e-book so you can learn anywhere, anytime
- Weekly coaching exercises to help you reflect on your purpose and get unstuck
- Weekly “real world” assignments that ensure progress on your goals
- Lifetime membership to the MSH Alumni Group on Facebook — an active group of awesome alumni helping each other out
Most 1:1 coaching programs cost anywhere from $1,000-$2,000 for 2+ months.
But because I want to help as many people as I can achieve their big goals, I’ve decided to keep the price for this course at $129. A small investment in yourself to help you make massive progress toward that life-changing leap that’s on your mind!
To ensure you get all of the support you need throughout the course, I’m also offering a special 20% off discount if you enroll with a friend.
“I cannot rave enough on how fantastic this course is! It’s Life After College on steroids! If you’ve ever wanted Jenny Blake as a life coach, but it just won’t fit in your budget, this is the class you’re looking for!
In this course not only do you get educational, entertaining, mind altering content, but you also get a community of like minded individuals who want nothing more than to help you succeed!
This ain’t your grandpa’s self-help class; this is a full throttle, life changing, dream making class. If you are a pro-active person looking for guidance, support, accountability, and fun, take the course, trust me you will not regret it!”
I’m super excited to work with you if you’re ready for me. 1+1 = 100, baby!

“The course really got me on the fast track to completing my goal but it also helped me realize there was so much more potential for it than I initially saw. My blog idea was originally just a way for me to work on mastering some skills I thought would help me become stronger at my career choice or “real job.” Skills like interviewing, talking to strangers and writing. Being a part of this course showed me that I was only scratching the surface and the blog could be so much bigger. I’m even looking at possibly making a career off the blog which was definitely not on my horizon at the beginning.”
—Jeff St. Pierre
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the weekly time commitment?
Listening to the videos, reading the case studies and completing the exercises will take about 1-2 hours per week. Beyond that, any extra time will be spent making meaningful progress on your goal — which is totally up to you. Think about what you do when you’re procrastinating….why not donate that time to this very important cause over the next two months? After that you can go back to your normal routine…but something tells me you won’t want to.
2. Will this work for any goal or any age?
Absolutely! One of the things I’m most excited about is the opportunity to offer a resource that can reach people and goals of all stripes. A solid majority of my readers are not recent grads, so this product is TRULY age agnostic. I’ve found a specific formula for making big stuff happen in your life, which is the same regardless of age, gender or size of goal. This is a framework that helps people accomplish big things in their lives — that has worked countless times for me and my coaching clients — that I’m super excited to share with you.
3. Will it work?
The $64,000 question. This really depends on you — as cliche as it sounds, you will get out of this course what you put into it. In the past those who have participated in discussions and completed as many of the assignments as they could left feeling excited and inspired about their lives. They broke through barriers that had been weighing them down, and made substantial progress on their goals. Quality, impact and attention to detail are huge values of mine, and I’m going to do my best to make sure the people in the course have an outstanding experience. That said, your results are up to you — I can give you hundreds of tips and resources, but at the end of the day you’ve got to be ready to take some risks and actually take action on your big dream.
4. How do I know it’s really worth $129?
Think about it this way: what is accomplishing your big goal worth to you? Would you pay $2,000 if you knew you’d emerge victorious? I actually wanted to price this course much higher, but decided to under-price it so that I could reach more people. You’re getting 10 weeks of material, templates, stories and incredible peer support through the alumni group. Still not sure if it’s worth it? See what Make Sh*t Happen alumni have said.
5. What if I have to miss a week of the course for travel or vacation?
While the material is meant to be done week-by-week, if you have to postpone one of the weeks that’s definitely okay. You will have full access to all of the course materials after the course ends and can revisit them at any time.
6. I’ve seen stuff like this before…how is this different? What specific outcomes will I achieve?
There are lots of products on the market — about selling e-books, starting blogs, and starting businesses — but they tend to focus on the “how” — the surface level details about how to get things done. That absolutely has its place, but I wanted to create a course that would dig into the foundation of who you are, what motivates you, and give you tools to support you for the rest of your life. Make Sh*t Happen does all of that and more. You might even walk away with a whole new set of friends
“I can’t tell you how happy I am that I joined this course! I feel like I have accomplished so much in this short time and it has given me a great sense of clarity and organization, and the confidence to move forward and tackle my big goals. I can’t wait for the coming months as I continue to MSH!!”
