Hi! Welcome to Rainy Day Diaries, an imperfect podcast that will dive head first into how YOU can thrive in your creative life (and business) even if you struggle with mental wellness.

That you're not alone, and that falling down does NOT mean you won't get back up again!

Super honest, encouraging, and comforting

This podcast feels like I’m hanging out with a friend! Jenipher is so down to earth and honest in these episodes. It's incredibly comforting and refreshing to listen to someone talk about real human experience stuff. It's particularly helpful for creatives I think, especially anyone dealing with anxiety, fear, imposter syndrome, or depression. You will feel less alone after listening! Thank you, Jenipher, for making a safe place to have these conversations!
