Welcome back to episode #299! Today I’m talking to Jen Hansard from Simple Green Smoothies! Jen is a bestselling author, co-founder of Simple Green Smoothies and knows the impact food has on your body. I have been on quite a health journey myself and I’m so excited to hear what she has to say and how she built her own empire.

“We felt in our hearts we were where we were supposed to be…” At minute 1:40, Jen talks to us about what it looked like before Simple Green Smoothies came about and the backstory to how her business starred. We dive into her first partnership in business and if she had any doubts about it being a real business.

“This was something that made a difference in the world….” At 7:37 how long did it take for her first business partnership and mommy blogging to take off until Simple Green Smoothies started. Jen tells us how she was doing anything she could to be proactive about her health to save on potential health bills which meant religiously drinking a green juice every day and how it ended up taking off virally.

“You have to keep trying and putting yourself out there in different ways…” At minute 11:44 Jen tells us about where her mindset was if it was just a side hustle or was it her top priority?  Jen tells us how it was juggling family life and running her businesses.

“Everything you put in your body should help you go after the things that matter most to you…” At 17:14 we talk about the good times and the bad times including the most memorable moment with Simple Green Smoothies and something that was a really hard time that made her stronger.

“Take a break from it and you can take a step up…” At minute 24:36 Jen tells us what’s in the future for Simple Green Smoothies! Plus I ask Jen to convince me why I need to be drinking green smoothies and her upcoming 30 day challenge!
