On Level Up To 2.0 we get real, raw, and honest about our lives and how we’ve reached the next best level of ourselves. We hear from thought leaders, coaches, experts, we hear from you- and together we learn and grow from each other. Life is chalked full of lessons; lessons in the good, the bad, and in the unexpected. Leave shame and stigma at the door- this show says it like it is unapologetically- with one mission in mind….to Level Up To 2.0!

Your host, Jen Sugermeyer, is an entrepreneur, life coach, keynote speaker, author, and is on a mission to help others improve their quality of life. Jen has undergone her own transformation after becoming disconnected from herself as she navigated the waters of life and watched her life dangerously spin out of control. Ashamed of the backlash for asking for help, she suffered in silence for decades until she finally had her ah-ha moment. It wasn’t the jails, wasn’t the hospitals, wasn’t the many lows she encountered- it was 7 words that changed her life forever. Tune in to learn more from Jen- she’s stepping out of the darkness to help bring light to the world. Mind hacks, tips and tricks, lessons learned…she and her guests bear it all!
