Who is Jeanine Hall Anyway?
It took me some time to realize I was an Art-preneur.
I've always embraced the culture of creating solutions instead of problems. Broke? Fix it. Don't know if an idea will work? Try it. Can't get into a gallery? Make your own. Fire Marshall walked into your artist co-op and gave you 30 days to get it up to code? Negotiate, write grants, get funded, make repairs, adapt organization so it doesn't happen again.
It wasn't until I made the life decision of leaving Pittsburgh behind to become the Director of Operations for Springboard Enterprises that the world of start-ups and entrepreneurs and creative business types became a thing for me. To that point I had quite the permanent line in the sand between the business world (which I wanted nothing to do with) and us creative arty types. Boy was I wrong.
So here I am starting my thirties with a new outlook. I have fancy papers from prestigious colleges about ten years of work experience doing all kinds of crazy things. (Check out my LinkedIn profile for my formal work history)
I've got big plans for the next decade...
But by plans I mean I have a loosely defined life approach.
