What’s Jean Krisle #ontheroad4?

Jean and her husband Hal Krisle are #ontheroad4recovery,criss-crossing the nation while living full-time in a 40′ 5th wheel for 10,000 Beds, Inc., the 501c3 non-profit organization she built from a fleeting thought to a nationally recognized force.

She started with an idea, built a well-rounded team, identified a mission, developed a strategic plan, and hit the road to help others. She even sold her home (as reported by Forbes).

Ask yourself: What are YOU #OnTheRoad4?

“Big Blue” as Jean fondly calls her home on wheels, is her home office, full time residence, and safe haven. She’s never had the inkling to forego the RV for a hotel room, that’s how comfortable she is in her new home. But if you’d asked her 3 months before she sold her home if she would ever live in an RV, she would have laughed outright. How can a person go from A to Z so completely, make a plan, and be so happy?

“Jean Krisle is powerful!”


“Jean is magnetic, funny, and motivating. She skillfully draws in her audience, and then with no apologies, masterfully drives home the expert points that will help them meet their current challenges, improve their performance, and achieve their goals.


Before her presentation with Kroger Women’s Leadership, she worked closely with the event team to determine exactly what our goals were and what the audience needed. I highly recommend Jean as a speaker to any organization seeking to improve communication, strengthen teams, trigger optimism, and develop effective leaders.”

Thought Leader & Visionary


For decades Jean has motivated and empowered organizations worldwide to reach their goals and improve morale and performance by providing expert training in the strategic areas of leadership, communication, marketing and optimism.

An entrepreneur from the get-go, Jean recognized early in her career that working behind a desk 8-5 would always be a challenge, and that her ideas often went unheard in the corporate board room. She learned that to be successful, she had to speak up, reach out, and work with people who had strengths she did not; she had to be motivated and be able to motivate, and most importantly, she had to be committed to her goals, ethical in her practices, and enjoying the ride.

Representing 10,000 Beds, Inc. Jean is #ontheroad4recovery in 2017 and 2018 criss-crossing the country in her 40′ 5th wheel with the ETHOS Series, her signature program co-created with Recovery Brands. ETHOS is a nationwide one-day seminar series featuring topic experts and focused on ethical, transparent communications and business practices leading to increased transparency and efficiency in the workplace, as well as greater personal success.



Jean is an empowering motivational speaker who masterfully weaves life experience, humor, current data, and her audience’s interests into her presentations. She is entertaining, yet down to earth; optimistic, yet realistic, and powerful, yet approachable.

Jean’s goal is to teach us to build bridges to help us more easily share our truth, join the conversation, and ask for help.

Jean has experienced motivation that leads to commitment – in personal and business relationships and when setting and working toward goals. Cultivating and understanding what motivates individuals, partners, and leaders can drive your business to new levels. Increased commitment within your team builds respect, and takes success levels to new highs.

Not only has Jean led local organizations for decades, owned a successful consulting business, and started a nationally recognized non-profit organization, she understands personally a level of commitment many will never see. She’s “all in” and living on the road in a 5th wheel. How did that happen? Invite her to speak and you’ll be inspired by her story.



Jean walks the talk.

In 2013, Jean was consulting in the addiction treatment industry and recognized an opportunity. Instead of turning away clients without resources, she communicated an idea to owners of treatment centers to provide treatment for those who could not pay: she wanted to create a nonprofit program that would provide scholarships to those in need, using the empty beds.

Since then, hundreds of treatment centers across the country have offered scholarships in collaboration with the nonprofit Jean started in 2014: 10,000 Beds, Inc. (10000beds.org). Through 10,000 Beds, Jean connected those who need help with those who can help. 

In 2016, the first full year of operation, 10,000 Beds, Inc. awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships for addiction treatment. 

10,000 Beds will more than double this achievement in 2017, thanks to the generous sponsors and partners who contribute scholarships, support and encouragement.

Jean is #ontheroad4recovery touring the country for 10,000 Beds in 2017 and 2018.


#OnTheRoad4Recovery: With A Global Perspective

Jean isn’t just #ontheroad4recovery, she travels worldwide as an advocate, coach, consultant and keynote speaker.

In NEPAL, she was privileged to work with a CHOICE Humanitarian team and teach basic business and marketing principles to rural villagers.

In CHILE, she was honored to participate with Atlas Network in exclusive interviews with the infamous “Chicago Boys” as part of the ongoing mission to advance the cause of liberty.
