My guest on this episode is Jen Glantz. Jen is definitely someone who brings all of who she is to everything she does. Jen has done a number of things in a relatively short amount of time. After graduating with an English degree, Jen was told she had two options, become a teacher or a lawyer. Knowing she had to create her own opportunities, she headed to New York City to follow her dreams and begin her career as a Creative Writer.
Today, Jen runs her own bridal consulting business, has recently released her second book, Always a Bridesmaid (For Hire), has 15-20 monthly revenue streams, writes a successful blog and has an inner sense of urgency which propels her forward to do great things.
