About Jenn In This Episode

Jenn Kurian began her professional journey in the field of elementary education, where she dedicated eight years of her life to teaching students from kindergarten to fifth grade. During her early years as a teacher, she embarked on a memorable adventure to Alaska with her husband, Steve. They had received an invitation from a friend Steve had met while working in Idaho.

Their main intention was to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Alaska and gain unique experiences. They engaged in commercial fishing, particularly set netting, and although the work was strenuous, they thoroughly enjoyed the process. However, due to low salmon prices at the time, they faced uncertainty about their ability to return the following year.




Coaching is an investment of time and money. It’s intense work that required you to be focused on your own personal and business growth. 



Groups of business owners who come together to learn, share encouragement and push one another toward new levels of greatness.



Your team needs intentional time away for training. Come to the farm to gain clarity, connection, and a path forward.



Book club is a great way to try out the network to see if it is a fit for you. Give it a try this month - it’s free and fun. Plus, you'll learn a lot from the book and conversation!



To say that I get it is an understatement. I have lived and worked through the good times and bad as a business owner, husband, parent and provider.

I grew up with strong role models who had entrepreneurship running through their blood. I learned from them - the good and the bad. But all of that didn’t stop me from making my own set of mistakes. I still had to make and learn from my own, sometimes catastrophic, errors of judgement.

Now, I am building a business just like you. I am proud of the growth I’ve accomplished within myself and my business. I also know that my growth is a journey, not a destination and that I need mentors, team members, coaches, and trusted friends to help me stay the course.
