- Jenna said she opened her first studio with only $400 left in her bank account. She DOUBLED that multi thousand dollar investment in only 1 year!
- She shares how you don’t have to always be competitive in business. There is room in the winners circle for everybody, and just because someone else is succeeding, doesn’t mean you can’t!
- Jenna shares that she went into her first studio pretty blind. When she opened, she knew it was a good market and knew people would receive it well, but it still was a scary investment! She put all her savings into this. Just a reminder that you have to make those scary investments sometimes to move the needle.
- Getting honest about asking for help–Jenna said that her biggest lesson learned from being an entrepreneur was asking for help. She was hiring from looking at a checklist and not the key things that were important to her. As a business owner it’s sometimes hard to tune in other peoples thoughts. This is so key!
- “Fear is healthy.” Everyone is!! Jenna said this quote and it is so key with business. Fears are going to come all the time. But just remember that everything you’re afraid of is figure-out-able.
