Hey hey! Today’s episode is a must-listen, friend! So much so, I’m bringing this Smart Girl Summer conversation back from the archives. Jen Fulwiler shares all sorts of knowledge about what it looked like in her life to step out in faith from one career to another. Y’all, it’s so inspiring!
Jen is a standup comic, bestselling author, former Sirius XM Radio host, and mom of six. And as if that isn’t impressive enough, she self-produced her first standup comedy tour, booking theaters across the country with nothing more than a Google search and her personal credit card. And she sold out almost every show!
We talk about her famous Tik Tok videos, how she pivoted through a pandemic as a stand-up comic, and the lessons she’s learned when dealing with self-sabotage and resistance moments. We also dive into how she faces a setback, gets out of her own way, and some of her “bomb” moments.

Courage is like playing a sport, in the sense that some people might be just born with more natural skill in that area than others but anyone can learn to be good at it if they practice.
You learn about the game of life by taking little risks and letting them turn into bigger risks. You start to feel more comfortable with the bigger risks because you just have more experience with risk.
Going for it is the most humble thing you can do and in fact when people stop themselves, usually it is actually your ego driving that it is your ego saying, “That would be embarrassing to me.”
When I face a setback, I speak in terms of action, not emotion, and that has really helped me move forward and stay strong, even when I know I’m feeling frustrated or embarrassed or whatever it is.
I think it takes humility to say, “I can’t do it all, I can’t, I need some help in this department.”
