This post comes to you from Colorado where inspiration flows. Life has been great here as I’ve been skateboarding some rad parks and learning how to snowboard (crossed that off the bucket list!). Yes I ate shit about a thousand times, yes I tumbled down the mountain, and yes I was sore as hell the next day. My friends would not let me start on the beginner slopes (“It’s too slow, you won’t learn!”) and took me (against my will) on the advanced mountain my THIRD RUN. I shed some tears on that mountain out of frustration, but by the end of the day I was making it down the mountain with only a few falls. I’ve been hanging with my friend Nicole and my best-friend from high school, Ryan. They are so rad to have put up with me and shown me the ropes the past week or so.
I’ve also been working really hard here and this little retreat has brought back my working mojo. The past 6-weeks have proved to be very difficult due to some unforeseen circumstances… as in extremely shitty ones. I’ll get more into that in a later post, but for now… let’s talk EPIC.
My mom has agreed to take my two adorable little doggies while I jet set around the world. She asked me to stay with her and help her declutter her house before I took off. Since it’s the least I could do, I agreed. I mean… I’m like an expert at this now right? I ended up finding a lot of my childhood crap that I didn’t even know still existed… stuff that I could make a lot of money with by selling. After 3-weeks of cleaning my mom’s house we had our garage sale (her stuff and mine). When I posted on Craigslist that I was having a garage sale to “sell everything I own to travel the world” I was contacted by a producer from a major network. A few phone calls later they sent a camera man to do a little demo video at my parents house. 3-days later, I got the call and I was cast for a tv show.
Yes, You heard that right… Jenny is gonna be on tv. How EPIC is that? I can hardly contain my excitement. Like seriously. I’m beside myself.
I start shooting THIS WEEK. (Damn shit happens fast in the tv world!) My trip to Colorado has been cut short and my road trip postponed, but no worries I’ll be back in Colorado to finish my trip and see my surgeons. The producers bought me a several air tickets that fly me direct from Colorado to Texas. Once I get everything in order, I’ll hit the road. I have until June to get to the World Domination Summit in Portland, Oregon. That’s my only hard date. I’m having a blast seeing where this spontaneous adventure will lead me, and I hope you are too.
Thanks to everyone that took my survey. The results were very eye-opening. I knew where I wanted the site to go, but was hesitant to take the full leap. You guys have given me the confidence to go there by backing what my thoughts were. Thank you for that. I have found my focus the last two weeks, but I haven’t found the right words. I’ve been working with Matt at Modern Audacity to wordsmith my message into a pretty little package for you. However, it’s not ready yet (as I mentioned last week).
The kind words you guys all wrote me in what you love about my site kept me going during one of the most difficult and nerve racking times of my entire life. I came back to the words you guys wrote so many times over the last 2-weeks. It wasn’t anything more than to lift me back up and get me to refocus on what really mattered. Words can’t express the deep gratitude I have for everyone that took the survey. Thank you so much.
One of my questions in the survey was, “What can I personally, help you with in your life/business?” Many of you answered this with a very specific task that I would like to fulfill. However, because the survey was anonymous I have no way to contact you or know who wrote what. If you were one of these people then please send me an e-mail at: jenny [at] whereisjenny [dot] com and I’ll do my best to fulfill your wishes. I have to write my e-mail like that because when I don’t I get about 500 messages of spam per day… and that ain’t cool. Sorry for the annoyance. I answer every single e-mail so feel free to write me at anytime.
I’m so flattered that so many of you are interested in my personal journey. I will continue to deliver on that, flaws and all. I got a lot of requests for an ebook and I must say, that is definitely in the works. However, I want to reiterate that the core purpose of my site is not to make money, it’s to change your life. I have a graphic design business that I’ve run for 8-years that provides the majority of my income. I do make a small amount from this site via affiliates and occasionally promote things, but nothing to write home about.
This site is going through a transitional period, as is my life and business so you can just imagine how crazy things have been. I will continue to update you on my progress and by next week will unveil the greatness Matt and I have been working so diligently on.
Until then, Keep Rockin’
