“Love is Leadership” with Jen Kem

In episode 109 of Lead with Love, I am talking with my dear friend and brand strategist, Jen Kem. Jen is a Hawaii-based branding and marketing expert who helps entrepreneurs (including myself!) with marketing and messaging. A big part of her work is helping entrepreneurs get seen, heard and paid for being themselves!

Jen is the creator of the Master Brand Method, a super-powerful framework pulling her genius from 17 years of corporate experience and from launching multiple companies (I’ll share with you in the episode exactly how many businesses Jen has launched)! Jen is a serial entrepreneur who’s helped companies and brands like The Oprah Winfrey Network, Steve Harvey, Verizon and many more.

Love is one of Jen's top 5 core values of leadership. In this episode, she shares when she was out of alignment in her business and what happened as a result, her thoughts about giving away your best content for free, and her heart project Femmefluence, a platform that supports women leaders to fully rise in their influence and their affluence so they can make an even greater impact in the world.

Tune in and listen below:
