Do work you love.  Be happy. Make Seattle better.  Be self-employed!



Hello :)

Being self-employed is about having an awesome work style and lifestyle. 

The trick is getting started...and to keep going!  That's where I can help.



Hi, I'm Jenny

I LOVE my job.  I think happy people make the world a better place.  And I think the route to happiness is a combo of being yourself, enjoying your work, and living in balance.  It takes courage, a little know-how and time. You are my heroes and it's my pleasure to support you!

A little about self-employment:

Being self-employed is a special category.  (It is not the same as a business owner or entrepreneur.)

The self-employed person simply wants a job that she likes that also fits in with her life goals.  This is very different than trying to make a million dollars, or inventing the next new craze.  

What's the catch?

It can be hard to get started.  And it can be hard to keep going.  Business books and classes can seem overwhelming and the minutia can get you down.  There are a lot of hats to wear.  This is where I come in.  I can guide you through the maze and help you run the business part your way.  So you can get back to the work you love.

Anyone can do business.  

You just need:  the right information and time to get your systems down.
