Jen Louden: Getting Your Bother On and Nurturing Creativity
When I first got into the "self-care" game many years ago, Jen Louden was one of the first names I heard. In this conversation, we talk about her book, "Why Bother?"; plus how to find your bother and get your bother on. We also talk about creative process, climate activism, and what it looks like to show up imperfectly and in process. We talk about learning as we go, daring to start imperfectly, and how creativity and imagination can fuel positive solutions for the planet. I loved this conversation so much, and it was an honor to have Jen on the show. Jennifer Louden is a personal growth pioneer who helped launch the concept of self-care with her 1992 bestselling debut book The Woman’s Comfort Book. She is the author of six additional books, including The Woman’s Retreat Book, The Life Organizer, and her newest release, Why Bother? She appeared on a number of television and radio shows and podcasts—including The Oprah Winfrey Show. As an entrepreneur and educator, Jennifer has offered women’s retreats for over 25 years. She lives in Boulder County, Colorado.
