She Believed She Could, So She Did – Jennifer Yen

I am so excited to write about the brilliant and beautiful, Jennifer Yen, as this month’s ‘She Believed She Could, So She Did’ honoree.  I have known Jennifer since I started showtheLOVE. She instantly wanted to help me market our jewelry, as she herself is a woman entrepreneur and knew how it felt to try and grow a business.  Jennifer is CEO of skin care company Purlisse, which by the way makes my favorite sunscreen amongst other great products. Jennifer exudes warmth, love, confidence and embodies the spirit of showtheLOVE.  It is not that often that I meet someone who is so open, caring and genuinely interested in helping others. We are grateful to have someone so beautiful inside and out wearing our jewelry.  Thank you Jennifer Yen!
