Meet Jen Ruiz

Who am I?

Hello! I’m Jen — travel writer, public speaker, and digital entrepreneur.  

Like you, I always wanted to see the world but found excuses not to go, like, “I have no one to go with” or “travel is too expensive.”

Then one day I chucked that mentality. I realized traveling made me happy, and I wanted to prioritize it.

I set out to take 12 trips in 12 months while practicing law full-time the year before my 30th birthday. To my surprise, I ended up surpassing my goal, completing 20 trips in 12 months to destinations like Greece, Argentina, Thailand and Iceland.

I found deals like a $16 flight to Ecuador and $38 flight to New Zealand!

That’s when I wrote my first book, “The Affordable Flight Guide.” It’s a #1 Amazon Bestseller and 2018 Readers’ Favorite Award winner. 

Encouraged by my self-publishing success, I did something crazy and quit my job as an attorney.

That’s how Jen on a Jet Plane went from hobby to full-blown business (I’m an LLC, baby!).  

What can I do for you?

Too many people put off traveling for tomorrow, and miss out on their goals. 

I’m here to tell you that if you’re bold enough to chase your own adventures, the universe will reward you in unexpected ways.

If you’re courageous enough to travel solo, you will find a global community that will never let you feel alone.

I want to inspire others to see more of the wonders this world has to offer.

This website has valuable tools to help your travels take off, including travel hacks and opportunities, bucket list adventures and planning tips. 

I also wrote a book to help you travel more even when you have a “real job,” called “You Need a Vacation! How to Travel with a Full-Time Job” and one on how you can travel the world fearlessly on your own called “The Solo Female Travel Book.”

Remote Work

As a full-time remote worker, I know how scary it can be when you’re first making the switch. I’m here for ya, babe! 

That’s why I started sharing remote work tips on TikTok in 2020 and published my bestselling book, 25 Ways to Work From Home, with details on exactly how you can turn your passion into a legit and profitable online business. 

My latest book, From Blog to Business, helps content creators turn their hobby into a full-time income. 

What’s my next project? 

I am thrilled to announce that I received a book deal for my memoir, “12 Trips in 12 Months,” about defying societal expectations of what a woman should be by 30, as told through a year-long travel challenge. 

Coming to bookshelves near you in fall 2023! 

It’s time to stop waiting and start living the life you want right now. Follow along and let me help you do just that. 

Till next time, safe travels!
