Hi! I’m Jen Hitze.

I’m a writer and former (corporate) ladder climber. I share 5 Big Ideas each week on Substack. My most popular posts are this one and this one; my personal favorites are this one and this one

My primary literary interests include topics related to intelligence (human + machine), intuition, and self-improvement.

intelligence “the highest faculty of the mind, capacity for comprehending general truths”

intuition “insight, direct or immediate cognition, spiritual perception” 

self-improvement “improvement of one’s character, etc., by one’s own efforts”

Etymological definitions from Online Etymology Dictionary (Etymonline)

My first book is The Search for Purpose; the book’s purpose was to show myself that I could actually write one. It contains exceptional quotes if you’re in need of some. I’m currently working on my next book and in search of a literary agent.

Outside of writing, I enjoy hiking and skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountains with my partner and rescued husky.
