Thom Singer invites Jenny de St Georges to episode 529 of “Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do” to talk about building a business. Jenny has an impacting story of how she started her speaking business talking specifically to dentists. Her success over the decades has been unparalleled in the world of speaking and training. She gives advice that come from doing. She has lived the entrepreneur life. She wants people to have faith in themselves but to not get paralyzed by being a perfectionist. Perfection can sabotage growth. Jenny has been a perfectionist, but has learned that sometimes you have to just ship the product or you will never be done.
Jenny de St Georges has a special service helping entrepreneurs think out of the box and find ways to be more creative with title and naming. Too often people are too blah in their titles and creative descriptions. She thinks people need to use their brains more than just relying on tech tools.
“Common sense and logic never go out of style”, says Jenny. It is so evident in today’s business world that common sense is not as common as we think. People shy away from having an opinion. Even business coaches do not push people, but she does.

In time, she grew JdSG International Inc. to 7 full time corporate staff and a team of 8 consultants and a teaching facility. She became a ‘big fish’ in the small pond of dentistry!
