Today I am so happy to introduce you to seamstress, kickstarter pro, and business owner of Fawn Design, Jenny Wecker.  Jenny takes us on a journey of using her talent and passion coupled with time management and tenacity to create a thriving business for her family.  Jenny shares how her love of sewing began as as she was taught by her mother at a young age of 5 and the hot pink stretch velvet dress that boosted her confidence.  She shares the crucial role Kickstarter played in the growth of her business as the demand for her stylish and functional diaper bags grew beyond her capacity to sew and how she raised $42,000 in 15 days.  She offers 3 key pieces of advice for success on Kickstarter.  Jenny also shares how she has been involved with helping refugees here in Utah, home to 60,000 refugees from around the globe, and introduces us to the Serve Refugees app which provides specific ideas and projects that you can become involved in at a local level.  Jenny also reveals something that she has regreted that spurred her desire create a weekly Periscope to help other budding entrepreneurs.  Be ready to be inspired to utilize your talents for the good of others and for a big dose of ‘yes its possible’.
