Longtime follower, new to podcast.

I’ve been following Jenell on social media since her youtube natural hair care video days, but I’m new to this podcast. As an aspiring business owner I appreciate her tips on how she balances her life as a boss, wife and mother. Binge listening has begun!

Folaket ,

Awesome podcast!

I just found out you have a podcast tonight, during your marathon IG Live. Boy, do I have a lot to listen to. Your voice is calming, your content is poignant, and so needed. I’m definitely going to be stalking you going forward. You’re about your business and you inspire such positivity. There’s a light about you that is welcoming. Keep doing what you’re doing.

Transformational

Never realized just how much changing my mindset and thinking more positively could impact my life. Sure you’ve heard people say “don’t be negative”, but Jenell’s way of making you realize the value in thinking more positively is helping me so much.
