Episode 39 – How “A Christmas Carol” Influenced The Way I Saw Business and Life with Jen Myers

Every year, my family attended a holiday musical based on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”. It taught me key lessons about business and life. 

In today’s episode, I share 7 business and life lessons I learned from this popular Christmas story. 

Having this holiday tradition in our family truly shaped the person I am today, as an entrepreneur, wife,  and mom. It is my hope that you will be able to find the lessons I’ve learned useful for your life too.


“So often, we’re always moving so fast, that we may not take the time to listen, but that’s where learning and change really starts.”

“Humility makes us better leaders.”

“Regret is not meant to be wallowed in, in my opinion. But I do think that we need to acknowledge it. I think we need to feel it because that is like the catalyst, the accelerant that really helps us change.”

“There is nothing better than the joy that comes with starting over.”

“Change happens in the present moment.”

“Ebenezer Scrooge really just taught me that money is just a tool. It’s totally neutral. Money simply amplifies more of who we are. Ebenezer Scrooge wasn’t greedy, because he was rich. Having a lot of money simply amplified that.”
