The best interviews should make you cry happy tears, right?

Our first interview to share with you, is with the amazing, lovely and talented Jen Glantz.

A lady who made her name by posting an ad on Craigslist to be a professional bridesmaid.

Yes, you heard it right.

A sneak into her story:

“I did what any poetry major would probably do when they want to start a business, I turned to Craigslist.

I wrote an ad offering my services to strangers as their bridesmaid for hire, shut down my computer screen, didn’t tell anyone about this, and went to sleep.

Two days later, the ad went viral, my inbox was filled with emails from brides-to-be, and my heart was beating toward a gigantic opportunity I created almost by pure accident.”

In this episode we talk weddings, dating, starting a business and living your best life.

Listen and let us know your thoughts! We’d love to hear what you think about some of the truth bombs that Jen drops on us during this one.
