Good day blog reader,
My name is Jenn and I’m documenting starting a business from scratch.
Shortly after graduating from college I joined our family business. That was twelve years ago. During that time I ran an online community for young, female entrepreneurs and jumped into video production. In 2014 I exited the business and went full into focusing on my two children and freelancing in video production on the side.
After years of serving the startup and small business communities, I still love following the news and trends that are out there. I have journals full of ideas for businesses, but never prioritized starting anything real in the past five years.
Now that my kids, my husband, and I are more settled I feel good about making a real effort to start a business of my own.
I recently completed a seventy mile paddleboard race that I had trained about six months for. I wish I had documented more of what actually went into getting ready for that and where my mind was. Sharing the process, not just the highlights, for myself and for others that were interested in doing the same.
This blog and choosing to create a new channel for distributing these videos is not new. Since leaving college I’ve authored a number of blogs and used video to share through live webcasts and vlogs. Sharing video content was my favorite. Brainstorming, shooting, editing, and promoting a video that I was passionate was fun. I also loved the discussion that would happen around the video. Plus, on a very selfish level, it usually got me freelance work.
Thanks for taking an interest in who I am. While you are here please subscribe to my Youtube Channel and weekly email to get a different view on what I’m up to in building a business from day one. By doing so you’ll also keep me accountable – thanks!
On a personal note, my husband and I live in a rural community outside of Seattle, Washington. We love to explore the Pacific Northwest and have an affinity for paddleboarding and skateparks. I spend my days homeschooling my two sons who are five and nine. Along with creating content I’m interested in personal development, dance, holistic nutrition, and reducing our waste.
