Great turnout for my office bday party! 🙃🙃🙂🎈🙂🙃🙂🙂 ps. My real birthday is Saturday in case you're keeping track.
This is me three years ago on National Boss' Day. It's much harder now than it was then (that's what she said). The challenges and responsibilities of being a boss become clearer to me with each passing moment. It is something that has been glamorized by so many and that's just not fair. It's not glamorous. It's fucking hard. It's heartbreaking. Its very scary. It's uncertain, especially for those of us that created these monster jobs for ourselves with zero to no experience. Am I up for the challenge? YES. Do I throw as much confetti as I used to? NOPE. Do I long for the admiration and respect of everyone that I "Boss?" You bet. Do I have that? I don't think so, but here's what I do have. I have a group of people that I want the absolute best for, at times even beyond what makes sense for the business. I have the opportunity to help run and grow what I think will be America's next big brand! I have a group of very smart, willing people that want to help and want to be lead to greatness. I'm gonna fuck some shit up guys, I will. I'm sorry. But I'll always be doing my absolute best, with the purest of intentions and that still won't protect us from the evils of life and business and the traps of misunderstanding but I will not waiver. I love you like you're mine. You are part of the biggest thing I will surely ever do in this life. Thank you for keeping me on my toes and challenging me to be better. Now get back to work. 😜#nationalbossday #7958
If you click the link in my profile and go to the 4:23 mark you can watch me fall in love with an oyster. It's disturbing! But honestly we had so much fun that night. Happy to have the memory and my "o" face preserved forever. (O is for Oyster, obvi.)
I attribute a lot of my success to my ability to multitask. 🍹
In January of 2016 my life started to change: friendships were ending, my business was rapidly growing and my therapist of 20 years encouraged my husband to leave me, without ever discussing it directly with me. I've suffered a loss of intimacy in every area of my life, and as someone who truly loves to be alone, I have discovered loneliness in a way I had never previously understood. May I say, here, I have a fucking beautiful, charmed life that I am insanely grateful for, but the human condition leaves room for me to feel this and feel despair simultaneously. Almost 2 years later, as I put all of these transitions behind me I was so surprised to find another set of transitions and challenges waiting here. I was kind of expecting to run through some taut tape at a finish line, be doused with champagne and gleefully handed a giant engraved trophy that said," JEN GOTCH you did it." That being said, I'm excited for this next one. I'm scared. I'm out of my body. I'm out of my mind and I'm also more in touch with what I want than ever before. I talk about this here, because every time I do, you always say, "me, too." So I'll keep it up. I'll try to make us proud. Thanks for sticking with me. 🎢
High 6's for 2 days straight. A small victory I will gladly accept.
Just like Dad keeps saying. . . I've always been hot. #proofofhot 〰thanks for the heads up guys. Late to the game/not totally a celebrity (unless u ask my parents) #puberme
Most meaningful conversation I had all day. #sometimes

Saw this at the store today. What if it actually was that easy? I don't think I would do it. I like being sad. It helps me be more aware of when I'm happy. 🙃
So grateful for the opportunity to speak at @losangeles_cm Today. This was right after I told the group that I was actually 45. Thanks to everyone that came to spend the morning with me and thank you for everyone that stayed and shared their struggles with mental illness. It is not something to be ashamed about. Lying about your age on the other hand . . . 🤗. Oh and thanks @wadergirl for capturing this video and making me feel like the standup comic I always wanted to be!

Thanks for being my "guy on the scissor lift handing me a giant sparkly gold disco ball" yesterday. I know that you could have easily been the "guy in background watching ball get handed to girl." But you weren't. I read what you wrote and I felt your kindness, compassion and empathy. Incredibly and endlessly grateful for your support. ❤️

3.2 today. The thing with depression is that you often can't see it coming. It doesn't start with a tickle in your throat. There's not an app to remind you," on Monday you'll be depressed so plan accordingly." And once it's here and asserts itself, there's not a magic dose of anything to make it stop. I had a hard, emotional week last week. I'm strong and resilient and I've survived many emotional weeks unscathed, so I wasn't expecting this but here it is. I didn't get my work done today and had to cancel on someone last minute so now I will add shame and guilt to the list. Depression is an oxymoron (and also just a moron). It hurts to talk, but I want to communicate. It hurts to eat, but I'm like very hungry. I can't access thoughts, but I cant stop thinking. It's personal, its vulnerable its lonely. 🎈I'm a red balloon that cannot drive and I have no intimacy in my life so I'll just put it here until that changes in hopes that if you're feeling this way, too, you'll know you're not alone and my existence will remind you that it doesn't have to define you or limit you. It can just fill you with compassion for others and their own struggles and make you weird and interesting, too.

I realized yesterday that many of the things about me that I consider my strengths. The traits that make me special and often what endear people to me are also some of my most destructive traits. How can my strength be my weakness?
There was a moment on Sunday when my cankles almost look like ankles and for that I am grateful. #blessed🙏

Started Monday with a 47 minute anxiety attack. How are you?
I like everyone in this picture A LOT!! And if you haven't seen the @wildhorsesshow you are missing out on something special! They are so smart and funny and vulnerable and modern. And we all have the same bag, so WIN WIN!

The beautiful and moving conclusion to the epic drama "We're big balloons and we want to pop in your face and kill you dead cause you made us ugly bye" is on my story right now and it's a very happy ending. 👣🎈
Right after this was taken, I attempted to interview a dog that was a patron at the bar. I've been making memories with this amazing group of ladies since we were teenagers and I never want it to stop!!
