Jena Proctor knew it was time to leave her teaching career, but she didn’t know exactly what was next for her. She always wanted a business to call her own, so she took the leap anyway and quit her teaching job at an elementary school.

Jena became a virtual assistant, and started on a path that would eventually lead her to her business. How did it happen? As a virtual assistant, she had the chance to dig deep into all the specialty areas of her clients. She flipped the script from teaching to learning so she could plot a path to the best business for her.

As a result she discovered that Pinterest strategy came naturally to her. She found it energizing and loved teaching it to her clients.

If you’re taking a leap and don’t know where to begin, you need Jena’s story. In this episode Jena covers –
