“Soft and Sweet” Van Conversion for Salon CEO

Since she was young, Jenn has always been hustling — working multiple jobs and rarely slowing down. She became the CEO of a chain of her own salons right as March 2020 shut down Chicago for three months. With all that time to finally stop and reflect, Jenn realized she was ready to pivot.

Most people didn’t expect a successful businesswoman to jump into #vanlife, but Jenn didn’t care! She’s able to travel to her different salons and do conferences while bringing her home with her. The “soft and sweet” vibe inside her van gave her a safe place when “the world was on fire.”

    Great for you for doing your van your way. I plan on building a skoolie and I love your use of cane on your cabinets and am stealing that idea. I will definitely think more about the soft theme since we do need more of that. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

    There is no need to justify the amount of cloths, shoes or anything else you have. It’s your journey and you do it your way. When you mentioned multiple tool kits it warmed my heart.

    I love your furry friends and how one sat and snuggled with you during the interview, they’re the best.

    I like how your used aluminum to frame your bed/garage area, easy to work with and keeps the weight down.

    Very well done.

    What a good attitude she has — she’s inspirational for those who are contemplating this change in their lives. I do wonder as I have with other videos —- if on the road —- if you have pets (dogs or cats) — and they need vet attention —- what do you do (Scope out vets close to where you are at the time)??
