Jenna Edwards


When you practice Aggressive Optimism, you can overcome any circumstance and create the life of your dreams.

Jenna Edwards is an Actor (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Malcolm in the Middle), an Award-Winning Film Producer (iTunes, Netflix, Hulu) and a #1 Best- Selling Author who is passionate about spreading the idea of Aggressive Optimism as far and wide as she is able to.

Growing up in a small town in Minnesota, Jenna was (what she calls) a “walking statistic.” According to the experts, she should have been pregnant at 16, living in poverty with an abusive husband and addicted to some form of drug.

Instead, she made the choice to overcome her circumstances and she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting. After garnering what she considered her “big break,” Jenna was hit at 60 miles an hour in the famed Santa Monica Farmer’s Market crash which left her with debilitating PTSD. Unable to read, stuttering when she talked and having flashbacks every day, Jenna set out to overcome that circumstance as well, and she did. She now lives (not in poverty) with her loving husband and fur baby in Los Angeles when she’s not traveling the world empowering others to overcome their circumstances.
