I am over the moon about talking to Jennifer Louden! I first saw her at a woman event where she gave a barn burning talk about burning barns down. Then when I saw she was the co-host and writing coach at Lauren Fleshman's Wilder retreat, I knew I had to go, especially since I was green (and still greener) at this whole writing game. She was warn, accessible and full of amazing tools.
Fast forward to the pandemic, when she launched her first self-published book, Why Bother?, where she unfolds desire, and how find it and follow it to take you where you need to go. It is the book that you need to read right now!
Since she is the professional writer, I am going to let her share her bio...take it away, Jenn!
I helped launch the concept of self-care with my first bestseller, The Woman’s Comfort Book, published in 1992. I've spent the next 20 years writing more books including The Woman’s Retreat Book, The Life Organizer and Why Bother? with close to a million copies sold. I spoke around the US and Europe about women's empowerment and self-care, wrote a national magazine column for a Martha Stewart magazine, and spoke on behalf of major brands.
I was been profiled or quoted in dozens of major magazines including Self, People, and Yoga Journal, and two of Brené Brown’s books, Daring Greatly and Dare to Lead; and I appeared on hundreds of TV, radio shows, and podcasts—even on Oprah.
In the last 15 years, I've focused on helping female creators get off the fence and make the work they love, whether that's a book, a podcast, a course, a membership community, or articles. I do that through courses, masterminds, one-on-coaching, and virtual and in-person retreats.
I host the popular podcast Create out Loud to help creatives stay inspired and keep learning how to make work they love and make money doing it.
