Jenna Leigh

A former PMU Artist with a passion for helping others succeed. Award Winning Mentor Jenna Leigh shares her story .... At the age of 17 I had my first full-time job working as an account manager for Zara a corporate travel accommodation company. From here, I continued in full-time employment specialising in Sales and Marketing for over 10 years until I decided to train in Microblading at the age of 30! I soon knew I needed to learn the machine method so 3 months into microblading I took a course in machine brows, then lips and then eyeliner!

My clinic was fully booked within the first 3 months of starting and it continued to grow with a healthy list of future bookings. I then took my experience and opened my academy, which I sold in 2022 so I could fully commit to helping people like you, with making your business a success (Whatever success looks like for you)!

My Academy hit 6 figures in its first year and continued to grow consistently reaching £250k in its fourth year. In the pandemic, when my academy and clinic closed I decided to start helping others in the industry with the areas that came naturally to me but hard for most others .... Business, Sales & Marketing. And here I am now ... 2 years down the line and I've won awards and helped over 1,000 entrepreneurs and my mission to help many many more!
