Jenn Furr

Tarheel born and bred, Jenn calls North Carolina home. Her redneck childhood combined with a Carolina education and corporate work experience drives her belief that you can do and be anything.

After numerous years in that corporate cubeland, Jenn jumped into entrepreneurship with the creation of a product she couldn’t find in stores – PictureThatSound.

Now, as president of a small business and a working mom, she works with GoalFriends to help give women confidence in defining and achieving their professional and personal goals.

Oh, and look for this North Carolinian in Hawaii in a few years. That goal’s at the top of Jenn’s list.
