Today’s guest is Jenny Melrose, a former inner city teacher in NY turned lifestyle blogger, and now business strategist coaching fellow business owners with online monetization strategies. In this episode Jenny we’ll learn how Jenny was able to retire from her teaching job at just 35 years young once she had replaced her $75k/yr teaching salary with the income produced from her blog. When she was approached and ultimately sold her blog for six figures. Jenny seamlessly transitioned back into teaching, but this time her students are primarily women looking to build or grow their online businesses. Listen in as we learn from Jenny how to fail forward, stop chasing shiny objects, prepare for the seesaw of entrepreneurship, select the problem that you’re going to solve and for whom.
