First Name

Chen Yen




A trained pharmacist (with a secret she kept to herself about what she really thought of drugs), Chen started and grew a pharmacist recruiting business from 0 to 7 figures when she helped experienced pharmacists find jobs that were right for them.

She was into things like Chinese medicine, and going to see chiropractors and naturopathic doctors when it wasn’t as popular back then as it is now.  As part of her Doctor of Pharmacy clinical degree at the University of Washington, she made up a reason and got permission to do a rotation at the Bastyr Chinese Herbal Medicine Dispensary instead of doing it at a typical pharmacy.  On some level, even back then, she knew she felt trapped and stifled in a regular pharmacy and wanted to get out.

As an introvert growing her business when she took her first leap of faith to start getting out of working in a pharmacy, Chen would often procrastinate doing things to market her business that her extroverted mentors told her she should be doing.   It was frustrating to try to be someone she was not.  Being around large groups of new people she didn’t know, trying to persuade people to do things, and being “out there” networking was not her thing.  After a lot of rejection and disappointment, Chen figured out an introverted way to grow her business without having to do as much marketing.
