I left my notebook somewhere and there went my to-do list. That is when I told myself ‘ you need to have a better system’ . So now I use my Google spreadsheet as my to-do list…and it allows me to stay accountable.

THIS IS MY ADVENTURE: I’m the founder of Bridesmaid for Hire, a business I started to help strangers have a more confident & stress-free wedding adventure. Always a Bridesmaid (For Hire) is about growing up, finding love & walking down the aisle for strangers. I’ve been writing my heart out on The Things I Learned From since 2011. Read stories about mistakes in love, life, and my career. Jen Glantz is the brains behind the business, Bridesmaid for Hire, the heart behind the blog, The Things I Learned From, and the main character inside of the Amazon-best selling book, All My Friends are Engaged. Her new book, Always a Bridesmaid for Hire, published by Simon and Schuster, is available now for pre-order. Jen’s told her story to over 500 press outlets world-wide, such as a the TODAY Show, Good Morning America, CNN and Fox News, where they called her job the “weirdest of all time”. Jen is a mentor for New York City women entrepreneurs and a hired speaker for conferences and workshops around the country. She lives on the 26th floor of a New York City apartment, the size of a walk-in closet, where she eats way too much pizza & owes way too much money to the library across the street.
