Hey there podcast family, welcome to episode 60 of the Small Business Made Simple Podcast.

Thank you for lending me your ears today – I know you have lots of choices, so I sincerely appreciate me being one of them!

If you’re a first time listener, super super welcome, I am so pleased to have you here.  I am your host Jenn Donovan, and, it’s my job, via this podcast, social media and everywhere else actually, to make your business life simpler. 

Business can be lonely and hard and complicated and it’s hardly ever easy, but it should be simple or at least simpler, so that’s my commitment you to on the Small Business Made Simple podcast!

One way I help to make your life simpler is by having a group of like-minded business owners all in one stop.  To ask questions, get answers and enjoy the journey of business! If you haven’t joined the Like Minded Business Owners Facebook Group, then hope over there after this episode and join!  Simply search Like Minded Business Owners in Facebook or come to the show notes for the like.  Show notes are at

I am just a wee bit excited for this episode, but first, I just wondered, have you downloaded by ever so popular FREE eBook – 108 Social Media Content Creation Ideas?


Well, if you’re struggling with social media, and content creation and ideas, this is the eBook for you and hey it’s free!

Simply head to and download it from there.

If you get it, read it, print it out and look at it all the time, it will change your life (or at least your social thinking challenges life!)

So, it’s at

Ok, today we are talking email marketing and segues.  What’s a segue you might ask – well it’s kind of like telling a story and then relating that story to what the email is about.

If you are on my list and received my baby shark do do do do to, email last week, that’s what a segue is!

Anyway, I am going to let my guest tell you all about it today.

I am very excited and maybe a little more excited than usual because, not only do I LOVE email marketing, but I have my FIRST international guest on!


I’m going international (or at least for this ep!)

I have stalked, kindly, in a marketing way, stalked Brenna for a couple of years now.  I love what she does, and I think we started our businesses at a similar time, so that’s always fun.

I admitted stalking her in her group a few weeks ago and she reached out via Instagram DMs and said, hey I’d love to be a guest on your podcast – what do you think?

Umm, me thinks yes!

Side note, this or that is exactly why I love social media.  Strangers become friends even from across a few oceans.

Brenna has the Social Rescue and is all about the email copy!  She is the co-creator of the Content Bar and her passion is making writing emails easy-peasy!

The rest, well she can tell you that.

So, here goes, my first international guest … YAY!


I so hope you enjoyed that and got so much from it.  I loved it and have learnt so much from following Brenna.  I am so thankful that we were able to coordinate time across the seas to chat.

I think it was my morning and her afternoon (on the previous day).

My hubby told me to tell her that Trump had not been impeached – because we were in the future and she was a day behind!  As she laughed, I thought, mmm, I think my hubby maybe turning into a “dad joke” person!

On that note, that’s all for episode 60!

I’ll be back next Thursday with another great episode to help you simplify your business in 2020.
