Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenna Masar.
Jenna, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was a bartender for ten years when I had an acquaintance from years ago reach out to me about a haircare line. I am a licensed cosmetologist, and all around skeptic, so I wasn’t very receptive. As time went on, I decided to just give the line a try, and I was blown away. Once I fell in love with the products, I decided to really commit to the business end of things and changing my life. Fast forward a year, I was able to quit the bar, travel the world, earn a Cadillac, but most importantly, impact women from all over. I always had an idea of what network marketing was in my mind… a scam, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. However, this product, company, and representatives have changed my life for the better. I realized that using social media to connect, inspire and share something you love is not a negative thing! We just are earning a living in 2019, and having a great time doing it. Monat Global has opened so many doors to me, and I am forever grateful for this opportunity.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Starting this business, and the journey it’s taken me on has not been easy. That being said, I have enjoyed every moment, even the struggles. The first year of my business I worked seven days a week, 12 hours a day. I gave up going out, I didn’t take a vacation, and I just grinded. I knew that this business was something so special and unique, and if I just put every bit of my energy into it, that I could change my future. A lot of people want to have freedom, travel, and nice things, but they don’t want to put the work in to get them. My advice to anyone out there is to start by just saying YES, a LOT. Say yes to all the opportunities that come your way, and try new things. Then, when you find that one thing, that you wake up thinking about, and go to bed dreaming about, DON’T QUIT. Life is tough, but if you are lucky to find something that you are passionate about, work hard at it. With our business, it is not about your work history, economic or educational background, but the sheer ability to see a better future and not stop working until you get there! Don’t forget to be true to yourself along the way, and show up in a positive way for others doing the same!
Please tell us about your work.
I am an independent representative for Monat Global! We have a customizable & naturally based haircare for women, men, children, and even pets! Our products are naturally based, vegan, cruelty free, and promote growth! Our line is incredible, but so is the heart of the company. Our company and representatives strive to lift others up and give back. I am Managing Market Mentor, hopefully soon to be Associate Executive Director and I have a team of over 700 amazing humans working with me. I think what sets me apart is that I have trouble being anything but myself. I treat my clients and a team like a family, and I don’t try to be something I’m not. I run my business mainly from Instagram, but I never want to just show the highlights of my life. That’s why I love sharing on my story, I’m able to really connect with people as I document my life as authentically as possible!
Do you think there are structural or other barriers impeding the emergence of more female leaders?
Well, I think the most difficult thing for women to overcome being a leader is giving constructive feedback when necessary. For some reason when a man gives feedback it comes off as him being a serious businessman, while women tend to be perceived as, well… a bitch. I try to find a balance of pushing people to be their best, running a lucrative business, while remaining diplomatic and sensitive to people’s feelings. I am human, and at times have fallen short in that area, but you learn from it and it helps you grow into a better leader. Some people think that women are too emotional to be leaders, or to run a successful business. However, I think that our emotions give us edge and understanding, and if we channel them correctly they can be our biggest strength!
