Introducing Pursuing Our Passion!

by Jenn (eating bender) on March 1, 2010

Remember that announcement I made?

The time has finally arrived to share more!

You may have seen me tweet about it, but I’m even more excited to blog about it :) For about two months now, March 1, 2010 has been a date that holds a very special significance in my heart. Today is the day that my business partner, Jill Felska and I officially launched our new business. We’ve started our journey to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to create, start and own a successful company…and we’ve started a blog to document our experience! It’s called Pursuing Our Passion.

We don’t claim to be experts. In fact, we believe that’s what makes what our blog so unique. We hope to inspire and be a young female voice for all aspiring entrepreneurs who have a passion and a dream.

There’s plenty more to share on this subject, but I’d like to let our new blog do the talking. So “POP” (a fitting acronym!) over and take a look — let us know what you think and, if you’re so inclined, come back and chat about it with me on Eating Bender, too :) It’s so exciting to be the author of two blogs that talk about two very specific passions. Writing about what you believe in just flows so easily!

Here are some special links to check out:

I hope you enjoy! The response we’ve received so far has truly warmed our hearts and humbled us. If you have any questions or just want to chat, don’t hesitate to email me at I will do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible!
