After a lot of hand work, sweat and giggles, I’m absolutely thrilled to share with you my brand new, sparkly website jennaherbut.com! This site is my portal to share ideas, inspiration and love with you. It’s something I’ve wanted to launch for a really long time, but was always too busy, too nervous or too overwhelmed to do. Plus, I really wasn’t clear on what I wanted my site to look like or the purpose of it.
Last summer, on a beautiful warm evening, I met up with my dear friend Heather for dinner. I absolutely love her new website and I wanted to hear the process of how it was created. When she told me that she had designed it herself and was partnering up with someone to create websites for creative entrepreneurs, I knew the Universe was leading me in the right direction! Shortly after, I met with both Heather and Azalea and we devised a plan of action for creating jennaherbut.com.
To say working with Heather, Azalea and later developer Emilie, was a dream is a huge understatement! Not only are they lovely ladies to hangout with, but they were so incredible in helping me to figure out the message I wanted to share with the world in a way that feels authentic and personal. They were also super patient with my crazy schedule, especially around Make It season!
Working with such a fabulous team helped me get clear on what I wanted the site to look like and what my true intentions were. Without a sounding board, it would have been so much harder and there would have been WAY more tears and WAY less giggling! I know in the beginning it can be really hard to afford outside help, but if there is a way you can invest in hiring pros (especially in the areas that are not your strength) I highly recommend it. You will save an enormous amount of energy, frustration and time.
It would have been so easy not to have ever created this site and just kept writing newsletter and posts under my Make It University site. But, I knew that it didn’t represent me in a way that I wanted it to. My desire in creating this site is to connect with you in a more personal way. I want to share my experience and journey as a creative entrepreneur to help inspire and motivate you to keep going for your dreams. I know it can feel incredibly overwhelming, but we are all in this together and I know a little encouragement can go a very long way.
I also want to announce that my coach and mentor, Marie Forleo is launching her awesome B-School program again!! This is an online course that really changed how I do everything in my business, and has also helped lots of Makies and other people in the handmade community. She has a series of free videos that I would HIGHLY recommend checking out. Marie was my business coach in 2012 and has helped me enormously over the years. Her videos are really fun to watch too 🙂
I really hope you like my new website as much as I do. It’s filled with happiness, joy and lots of pink! My goal is to help you stay positive and inspired to keep doing what you love to do. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be successful as long as YOU believe you will.
