Launched into door to door preaching and sales of religious publications at the age of 6, Jan Janzen spent 38 years as a Jehovah’s Witness!
But in 1999, she walked away from a religion she had known all her life and lost almost everything - friends, most of her family and her husband of 18 years. No longer feeling comfortable “being in the box” of the religion, she escaped the confines by literally moving to an island and cutting off all connection with her past.
Now that Jan was “out” she realized she needed to learn the very basic things most Western society take for granted, including how to celebrate her first birthday and Christmas at 40 years old and what new beliefs she needed to develop in order to function alone in an entirely new society. Everything in her life was now in question - from blood transfusions to sex.
Jan knows what it takes to sell (she purchased her first Molly Maid franchise at the age of 19) so she threw herself into business. Nominated as one of the “most influential women in business in Vancouver, in 2003, Jan began one of the fastest growing networking organizations for women.
In May 2004 she became ordained as a non-denominational minister and after completing her studies with Religious Science, she spent 8 weeks volunteering in South Africa. After a strong gift of healing showed up in 2005, Jan helped clear her business coaching clients of the emotional and limiting blocks that were holding them back in their business. Her healing business, booked solid weeks in advance, was built entirely by referral.
“You can only grow professionally as much as you are willing to grow personally.”

Getting Off The Merry-Go-Round By Jan Janzen
Jan’s story is amazing! I have learned a lot from Jan’s Book Getting Off the Merry-Go-Round. Jan’s book made me rethink my own beliefs, revisit past issues in my life and finally feel that I can make my own decision that was right for me. I finally understood some of the issues I was facing, and I am working on them each and every day thanks to Jan’s book. This is not one of those “read fast” and put it away types of self-help books, this is one you will want to keep on your bookshelf and re-read it often.
It is such an inspiration to hear other’s stories and learn from them, Jan’s story is one that I will remember for a long time to come!
