“I felt stressed out of my mind, deflated, guilty, perpetually tired and strung out trying to commute and manage it all,” remembers Jen Hutchings, describing the day that finally inspired her to leave her full time corporate job in lieu of something else.
And it’s a sentiment most working mums will be able to relate to.
Instead, Jen wanted to use her 15 plus years working as a brand and creative services specialist with some of Australia’s best known not-for-profits in a role that would give her the flexibility to be more available to her young children and husband.
Now, with her boutique agency, Intrepid Creative, she’s doing just that and helping other Lady Startups breakthrough with their branding, marketing and PR needs.
Here, Jen shares with Mamamia her business story so far, including the stressed-out and smoothie-drenched day from hell that finally put her off corporate life.
