You know that mushy feeling you get when you watch a chick flick and there’s the chance meeting between two people that bump into each other at the grocery store while picking out apples, and they fall in love… sounds like something only movies are made of…. Today’s guest had a similar chance meeting on a subway when she met her partner, and it changed her life forever. My guest this week is Gena Jaffe. Gena is a lawyer turned entrepreneur and it all stemmed from a chance encounter on New York Subway. Believe me, it’s a story you want to hear!

In this episode, you’ll hear Gena share the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and why we all need to protect our businesses… even if we’re just getting started, the rollercoaster of building an online business, and how Gena was able to turn her business around to create a life she loves.

Gena is a badass who brings positivity to my glass half-empty mindset. Listen to her journey of starting a business, raising a family, her own struggles with anxiety and how she’s helping online businesses today.
