My Morning Routine with Minimal and Well
I'm a firm believer that your morning routine can set the tone for your day—personally and professionally.
So when Jennifer Cook of Minimal and Well asked me to be part of her Power Morning speaker series, I was pumped.
I'm super passionate about wellness and over the last 8 years of owning my business, I've experienced how morning habits and what you put in your body affects your mood and mental clarity.
And it's important to remember that it's an ongoing process that looks different for everyone! My morning routine gets tweaks about every quarter depending on what my body and soul needs in that season.
For those of you who are struggling to find inspiration in the morning and sustain that energy throughout the day, this interview is for you!

When to Do Free Work
Have you ever received an email or DM or text from a friend asking you for help on a creative project...for free?
Or maybe it was in exchange for a hug or some exposure.
It can be a tough situation!
In this episode, I talk about what to consider when asked for free work.
Because in my experience there may be a time and a place for it! In all honesty, doing some free work what got my business off the ground.
But you do want to be careful and not devalue yourself so there are good things to keep in mind when you get these requests.

What I Wish I Had Known Before Licensing My Art
Now that I've been licensing my art for a few years and we're gearing up for our Brand Plus Brand course launch, I've been thinking about things I wish I had known before starting this journey.
So for this bonus episode, we turned the tables and I'm actually the guest answering questions from my licensing agent, Julie Turkel, on her podcast.
If you are an artist designer, photographer, any creative brand owner, and you've been thinking about getting into licensing, or maybe you are in licensing already, and you just want some insight on the journey, I think this is going to be a very interesting episode for you.

Budgeting and Taking Control of Your Finances with Isaiah Goodman
Budgeting and managing finances are a sore spot for so many entrepreneurs (me included).
I think part of it is because it seems rare for creatives to have been really properly taught how to do it, whether it's for our personal expenses or business expenses.
And it's super uncomfortable to just "wing it" with money! Yet so many of us do it.
So I'm stoked to introduce you to Isaiah Goodman. Isaiah is the founder of BecomingFinancial.com and MoneyVerbs.com. He is a Certified Financial Education Professional™ and a Certified Financial Educational Instructor™.
Isaiah loves to empower others and help them think about becoming better every single day. His dream is to help people get a good grasp on their finances, how to budget successfully and just how to be better with money.
Whether you're a creative entrepreneur or not, all of the tips and tools that we cover in the episode can make a huge impact.

Surface Pattern Design Q&A with Just Jos
A surface pattern design Q&A with Jocelyn Sipowicz (aka Just Jos)! Jos is lifestyle print and product designer (and alum of Brand Plus Brand—my course on licensing that I co-teach with my agent, Julie Turkel!)
She has robust experience in the fashion industry (Coach, Chico's) as well as home textiles and accessories (Loloi).
In her work with brands, she acts as a facilitator between other artists and the brand. So... listen up all you creatives aspiring to get into licensing—Jos lets us in on some insider tips! Julie and I were so excited to have her on the podcast to share with you her ideas for getting collection inspiration, building a library that attracts manufacturers (spoiler alert: it's about diversifying!), and the themes she sees currently trending.

Absolutely Amazing Podcast!
I’ve been following Jenna for a while but I only just discovered her podcast and wow! I knew she always creates genuinely great content but her podcast is beyond helpful and exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for your useful and soulful work X
I’ve been following Jenna for years, and she is so honest, open and has taught me so much business knowledge. I studied illustration at university 15 years ago, and honestly, she has taught so much more about transferring your talents to business than university did! Thank you so much Jenna!!!
You will hit the gold mine.
Jenna is so generous in these podcasts. I want to tell that she has this onion in front of her which is her business. She peels layer by layer and shows you how she has built it... I’m kinda really amazed by how it can help you so much especially when you are starting out on your own. Thank you for this jenna. Your awesome!
Please don’t mind the onion reference. Probably came from the fact that I was listening to you while cooking.
