    Social Media Boundaries to Adopt to Protect Your Mental Health

    Social Media Boundaries to Adopt to Protect Your Mental Health

    Social media boundaries are absolutely crucial for protecting your mental health, your social life, and your relationships. They have been so huge for me lately because not only do boundaries protect my mental health and sanity, they allow me to be more effective in juggling all the things like motherhood, running a creative business and having relationships.
     
    This episode isn't about bashing social media. Instagram, specifically, is an amazing business tool that's helped me create my business and gain traction with attracting clients to build my stationery business and then later allowed me to pivot into licensing and education.
     
    At the same time, it's important to be aware of the potential downsides to social media so that we can be intentional about how we use it.
     
    Tune in and get the 6 simple, GAME-CHANGING ways I've set boundaries for myself surrounding social media and technology.

    From Angel Investor to Letterpress Guru: Being a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur

    From Angel Investor to Letterpress Guru: Being a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur

    I only met Elizabeth Weil a few months ago, but she quickly has become one of my biggest inspirations because of how she’s so incredibly active and involved in her job and her kids’ lives. Her story is incredible—from venture capital and Twitter to angel investing, being a mom of three, and running a letterpress business out of her garage.
     
    She’s got the mom duties, the business owner duties, and then investor duties and meeting with clients. I know many of us are juggling a lot of responsibilities and often feeling overwhelmed. If you’re looking to get inspiration and tips on balancing it all, this episode is going to give you a lot of that insight.

So empowering!

I’ve learned so much from Jenna. This podcast is a perfect, consolidated outline of not only her story, but her advice and authentic experience. She gets to the point and is so real! I’ve followed her for years now via Instagram, her blog, courses and books. She’s inspired my creative business and I seriously owe her for all of things she has to offer! This podcast is just the cherry on top. You da best, Jenna!

Learning a ton from her

I only found Jenna about a week ago bc she popped up on my insta search. I’ve already binge watched, listened and read all her media. She is interesting, knowledgeable, entertaining, experienced, and VERY helpful and generous. Next, I plan to purchase her book and her pen to press is on my horizon. Thanks Jenna. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

She’s Giving Away the Keys to the Kingdom?!

This podcast is absolutely amazing. No joke. If anything, listen to her “5 Steps to Create Your Annual Promo Calendar.” It was so intense, my mind began racing with ideas.....I figured I’ll just put the kids to sleep late because I couldn’t wait for them to sleep before I could write everything down when I got home. As I listen to one episode after another, I’m like, “Is she giving away the keys to the kingdom?! No way...” Her insight into the industry is amazing. She’s detailed with actionable tips. Heck, I even have to pause it sometimes so I can write down ideas but I don’t want to miss anything! I’m a stay-at-home mom, and I thought that my Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship/Marketing was useless, that my 9+ years in online marketing was in the past. So I decided to take on watercolor and calligraphy as soft skills to keep myself sane. But then I learned that the author of my favorite watercolor book will give insight on how she made it in the business. Listening to her podcast, she’s speaking my language. She’s bringing it all Full Circle for me now. I’m a mom with kids under 5, but I can take this new art to help me relax and this new business insight to fire me up. I was playing with the idea of starting a business at this point in my life.....and now Jenna has given me practical and actionable means to actually make this happen. Thank you so much! I look forward to ALL your podcast episodes. You and John are doing great! Keep up the good work. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
