Helen Iwata, the Less Effort More Impact Coach, is back on the show after five years! Helen has done quite a few transformations herself since 2018, and I can’t wait for you to hear how she is helping international and Japanese women in Japan to have more ease and joy in their lives. Now that is something we all want!! 

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • How Helen has transformed since she was on TWJ 5 years ago
  • Some of the top things that Helen sees in the women who come to her for coaching 
  • Jayne overcomes not one but three interruptions 
  • The #LessEffortMoreImpact movement and how it’s already helping both Japanese and international women
