The concept of running hard is not foreign to us, especially these days and in our culture. But running hard - and then intentionally resting well - is hard to not only put our minds to, but to live out day to day. One woman, and her team, is out to change how we 'run hard and rest well' and I admire her greatly. Meet the amplifiable Brenda Jank.
Brenda is the CEO of an organization called Run Hard. Rest Well. The organization was founded in 2008 and spotlights a new way of living. Brenda and her team equip leaders and their teams to embrace a pace and passion for work and rest that is life-giving, transformative, and sustainable – creating communities where people Run with Passion and Rest on Purpose. If you think Brenda’s life is easy and resting well comes naturally, quite the opposite is true. Brenda and her husband Tim have five children, and she shares she “knows the joys of adoption – all our children grew within my heart, some grew beneath it.” They know the challenges of raising kids, especially because some of their children have significant medical and special needs.
Not only is Brenda a remarkable mom to the “feisty five” and wife, but the impact she is making for hundreds and thousands of people across the world through her organization and its philosophy is amplifiable. Run Hard. Rest Well. through Brenda’s leadership with a hallmark of grace is what’s needed more than ever in our fast paced, at-the-limits-of-our-capacity world. She, in essence, gives us the tools to enjoy and plan for restorative wellness we all crave and need.
Brenda – you are a remarkable person of impact! As is our team at Amplify Consulting Inc.’s commitment, we will donate $100 to a charity of your choice to further amplify both your remarkable impact and the charity’s.

We were excited to amplify the remarkable impact of Brenda Jank last week. As a part of AmpliFriday, we donate $100 to a charity of choice for our amplified individual, and Brenda has chosen Run Hard, Rest Well (RHRW).
As the Founder and CEO of RHRW, Brenda's passion for the project is palpable.
“RHRW is determined to create a paradigm shift in the hearts of people. We are tired. We are tired of being tired - and there's a better way. Wellness, as we know it, is not working. Most wellness programs ask us to invest time and energy we don't have into activities most of us don't want to do: eat better and exercise more. The ensuing guilt and shame keep wellness out of reach. To make wellness work in the lives of everyone everywhere, we have to address, first and foremost, our fatigue. RHRW introduces people to a wellness paradigm that gives people permission to stop and rest guilt-free. As subject matter experts in Restorative Wellness, we remind people that we can't give what we don't have. RHRW begins by impacting leaders as we work toward making wellness work for people of all ages and backgrounds. Working collaboratively with non-profits, we can change the world together - one person at a time. This gift will go toward our work with men and women living in shelters due to addiction, recent release from incarceration, and/or domestic violence.”
Congratulations again, Brenda, on being amplified; we are proud to support Run Hard, Rest Well by making a $100 donation in your honour.
