Hi there. How are you?

Let me tell you how this cool opportunity came to be……

Back in February, I saw that Tara McMullin, creator of the What Works Podcast was looking for guests for her upcoming “By the Numbers” series.

As Tara states,

“Numbers give us a lot of information about what’s working and what’s not in a business.

They can tell us a pretty interesting story… if we’re willing to listen to it. Numbers might not tell us everything we need to know but they certainly help us ask better questions and point to new possibilities.

Throughout May, we’ll be featuring candid conversations with small business owners who have changed course because they paid attention to the numbers—everything from profit margin to time management to website traffic from Pinterest.”

I had a story that I knew would fit this theme.

I sent her a DM and threw my hat in the ring. A few weeks later, I was in front of my computer recording an interview with Tara over Skype.

This is a big, cool deal.

Tara is a small business rock star.

I have been following and learning from Tara McMullin for years. I can’t tell you how honored (and cool) I feel to have been a guest on her stellar What Works podcast. If you’re in the small business world, and you want real, down to earth business talk, give it a listen.

Here’s the whole episode:

In this interview we discuss:

  • What happened when one of my pins was repinned over 50,000 times—and why it created a spike in traffic but not in sales.

  • How and why I regrouped and decided to make an online drawing course.

  • My very simple process for filming, producing and hosting my online course.  (Shout out to Kerstin Martin and her Squarespace Classroom for helping get this course off the ground.)

  • How my online courses have impacted my business as a whole and what’s in store for the future of my business.

Find What Works on iTunes or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Go listen to my interview and let me know what you think!

Ciao, Jen

An Interview and Something New

Hi! How are you?

For a variety of reasons, things have gotten really busy and my little ole blog has been neglected. I wanted to let you know that I am indeed still alive and kicking, and will soon have some brand new products to share with you. (See the sneak peek above!)

I was honored to be interviewed by fellow etsyian Melissa Martinez on her Working Title/Gallery 3940 blog this week.  Click here to read the interview.  Thanks much Melissa!

Have a great weekend friends. Ta-Ta for now!

Keeping it Indie Blog Interview

Greetings friends! How are you?

I'm excited and honored to be the featured artist on the Keeping it Indie blog.  There's a cute little interview and some of my artwork featured.

Brandi, the woman behind this fab blog is an old Etsy pal of mine.  In her Sweet Harvey shop, she creates all sorts of beautiful letterpress cards, screen printed textiles and illustrations.  Please patronize her shop!

I'm working hard on a big new piece. Hopefully I'll have something to show you soon.

Ta-ta for now.
