Hey there!

I'm Jenna Kutcher

I’m a small-town Minnesota photographer, podcaster, and educator with big dreams. Obsessed with: mac and cheese, puppies, a nap in the sunshine, and yoga pants. I've been keepin' it real since 1988.

IN RETROSPECT, I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT THE GIRL WHO WOULD HAUL A COOLER A HALF A MILE TO REACH THE INTERSECTION OF TWO DESOLATE DIRT ROADS IN A TINY MINNESOTA TOWN TO SELL LUKEWARM LEMONADE FOR FIFTY CENTS WOULD BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR SOMEDAY..

I didn’t always have this business: the clients, the courses, the sales, the millions of downloads...

In fact, just a few years ago you could have found me wearing red and khaki, exhausted in my stuffy windowless office. I thought I had landed my dream job, but that dream turned into a ladder-climbing nightmare.

At the age of 22, I invested in a $300 Craigslist camera. Little did I know, that camera would be my one-way ticket out of my windowless office corporate job. That single investment led me to the 7-figure empire I’m running today. Today you can find me snuggled up in my cozy Minnesota craftsman with my two pups or basking on the beaches of Hawaii (or anywhere warm) with my dreamboat husband and our beautiful baby girl.

currently...

I’m probably sipping coffee or a jalapeno margarita and dreaming of ways I can help other entrepreneurs grow profitable, passionate, authentic businesses that allow them to live more and work less.

Ya wanna know what lights me up? Making people feel, own, and celebrate their enough-ness and feel less alone… because sometimes this journey gets hella lonely and our only friends are called Ben + Jerry (and they conveniently come in the gallon size-- Chunky Monkey anyone?) If I can be that permission granter in your life that whispers: “you really can do this” while the rest of the world is provoking doubt… then I’ll consider my job done.

A FEW OF THE THINGS I ANSWER TO:

  • 01

    Ceo

    When people think my business is a hobby, I tell them I’m a CEO of a multi-million dollar empire.

  • 02

    Mama

    A title I wore through our struggle to become parents. Even though my baby girl said “Dada” first, this title is the one I’m most proud of.

  • 03

    Babe

    It’s weird when Drew calls me by my name. We’re just “babe” to one another. Cue the pet name jokes.

  • 01

    Role Model

    Trust when I say, I am NOT a model but I wear the title “Role model” with tons of pride and I smile with my eyes like Tyra taught me to.

  • 01

    Influencer

    A term that makes me cringe, however, as a true believer that we all have influence, I can get behind it and rock it.

  • 01

    Jen

    Only "Jen" to my closest family and friends— this nickname is reserved for people who have known me for decades!
