Occupation: The Digital Storyteller
Jenn is the Managing Director at Indaba Digital. In 2012, she left her position as the Director of Social Media & Division Manager at a leading digital marketing firm to start her own agency. Her clients range from local restaurants and hotels to international consumer packaged goods firms.
The project that I’m most excited about working on in 2015 is Athena Organic Farm. I’m working with a local team to purchase a profitable organic farm in Cawston, BC with plans to build an innovative fully off-grid eco-bed and breakfast. We’ll be launching a crowdfunding investment campaign in 2015, where anybody can buy shares in the farm and own equity.
I’m on the Marketing Advisory Board for FUCK Cancer – a global organization that is on a mission to save lives by spreading one simple message: 90% of all cancers are curable if caught in stage one! Know what the symptoms are and get yourself checked out ASAP.
I met a guy on POF once who had used another person’s pictures on his profile. When we met up, I called him out on it, he got up and ran away! Who does that?
Someone with drive: who knows what he wants and goes out and gets it. He has passion for what he does and pushes me out of my comfort zone. The perfect partner is someone where we are stronger together than we are apart.
The dating scene is very passive – one idea to encourage people to meet and talk to one another would be to hold singles hour. How great would it be if you could start your Friday night out with friends somewhere knowing that everyone is single!
A man that is negative and always whining or complaining about something – if you don’t like something in your life change it! Complaining doesn’t get you anywhere.
A guy who sends me a good morning text so that I know that he’s thinking about me before I’m even awake!
Dinner at Homer Street Café and the lounge at Parlour in Yaletown.
I definitely disagree with pick up artist books; they’re fake and disingenuous. For me, you don’t need these ‘tricks’. I look for a man with confidence. Someone who approaches me with a compliment specific to me or to help break the ice even further, include my girlfriends in the conversation as well!
