Nicest People Are Always Hidden

So today we have another interview! Up next is Jen, I met Jen via IG not too long ago, and I have to say she quickly became one of my most favorite people. She is the kindest, most supportive person you could ever ask for, especially from someone you only know online.


She is from Northern California, a mom, a small business owner, and ambassador of many!


Fish: Hey Jen! Thank you so much for participating in my chronically creative interviews! First off, please let everyone know: what is your business name and what do you sell/what service do you provide?


Jen: Jens Paint and Pour, I sell resin home décor items in themes varying from cottage core all the way to galactic!


Fish: What did you want to be when you “grew up”? Is it different from what you are doing now, and if so, how did you end up doing what you are doing now?


Jen: I wanted to be a marine biologist growing up then I discovered my fear of the deep sea and it didn't go anywhere after that.


Fish: What is the roughest part of your business?


Jen: For me the roughest part is sales, I hate feeling like I'm being pushy or rude, but sometimes you gotta post about sale stuff lol.


Fish: What is the most rewarding part of your business?


Jen: The most rewarding part for me is 100% the friendships and connections ive made on this journey.


Fish: Do you have a 5-year goal with your business? If so, would you be willing to indulge us a little bit with where you plan on taking it?


Jen: I have absolutely no 5 year plan or goal, I'm just flowing with wherever this journey takes me. Right now it seems to be brand representation and content creation.


Fish: What is your most prized/favorite piece you’ve created?


Jen: For sure my favorite piece made is probably going to be my recent charcuterie boards, the green and gold one steals my heart every time!


Fish: What is your biggest failed project?


Jen: Biggest failed project would have to be my first experience with flash curing resin! I was making a ring holder and it flash cured and I figured it cured fully and that was not the case. it was still jello at the tip.


Fish: What big or small business move have you made that became the most rewarding?


Jen: Becoming a brand ambassador for numerous brands I'm passionate about. It has helped me financially and skillfully!


Fish: What big or small business move have you made that became the biggest fail/hurt you the most but became the best learning experience?


Jen: Being overly ambitious about new mediums and them never taking off. For me it was clay art! Big fail.


Fish: Do you have any shout outs to other businesses you are friends with you would like people to check out?


Jen: @xoxojlocrochet, @ lady_aethrias_charms, @ cathartic.creations1 and you!


Fish: Do you have any apprenticeships/ambassador programs?


Jen: My brand does not currently have any ambassador programs but maybe one day!


Fish: Are you willing to teach people how to do what you do?


Jen: I am always more than happy to teach anyone how to do resin art. I have all my links in my bio, but Pinterest is my fav!


Fish: Do you have any first-time customer codes you would be willing to share?


Jen: JENS10 will save you $10 on your first order


Fish: What are all your socials so everyone can follow you?
