Michael Jenet Author | Publisher


Born in Belgium to English and Belgian parents, raised in the Midwest United States, an 8-year Veteran of the US Air Force, and now living in Colorado, Michael Jenet has spent a lifetime following his dreams and passion for helping others. 

Having been the victim of ‘predatory publishing’ himself, he began researching the publishing industry and did not like what he saw. Continuing the work with his wife at the 50 in 52 Journey and its mission, together they created a non-profit publishing house specifically to flip the publishing model. Journey Institute Press was created to benefit the author over the publisher and use traditional non-profit fundraising as the mechanism to make this happen. 

Journey Institute Press is now the focus of Michael’s work as he endeavors to give authors the tools, resources, and support they need to be successful and help tell the stories that otherwise would not be told. In his limited spare time he is also turning his writing talents to fiction and stories that came during the pandemic and will soon be published under imprints from Journey Institute Press.

Michael Jenet | TEDx Talk | MOTIVESTIONS

This TEDx Talk, given in 2011 was the core that became Michael Jenet’s first book ASK: The Questions to Empower Your Life.

MOTIVESTIONS™ is the culmination of Jenet’s work to date and provides the most flexible and yet powerful tools for anyone to realize the achievement they’re looking for. Whether you have a goal or not; whether you know your dream or not; even if you know what you want but have no idea how or what to do to get it, this presentation will help you. This is not simply a sharing of knowledge garnered over years of study, listening, and reading, but a true-to-life example of someone as ‘ordinary’ as you who achieved what he wanted in life by using the very tools he will be sharing with you.
