Hey Beautiful Friend,

Wanting to share what work I’ve been involved with and what direction things have been flowing…

The Story of MythbusterBeauty.com

In 2007, my interest in creative content emerged as a stay-at-home Mom, inspired by watching Oprah, spotted an emerging trend, and decided to start reviewing beauty products in a personal, engaging blog format. This passion for naturally curly hair care developed into a multi-pronged business/revenue model. At its peak in 2010, MythbusterBeauty.com created inbound traffic of over 23K unique visitors a month and had several top organic searches which came about through writing relevant, high-interest content, networking with blogs, several business owners and PR firms, and learning-as-I-blogged SEO practices.

Along with writing a beauty blog, this led me to create features for NaturallyCurly.com (TextureMedia LLC). From the outstanding, entrepreneurial Jessicurl line to explaining the LOC method, to embrace and not fight against your curls has been a way to empower others, no matter what kind of hair they were born with.

My love of food is my first love, and creating features and promoting local businesses has become a very exciting collaborative work at Devour Utah magazine. Ted Scheffler who is the Editor, as well as the Food Critic for Salt Lake City Weekly, accepted my first pitch, a story about Asian Greens and how they are undervalued in the typical American diet. July’s feature was all about entrepreneurship and local food as well, exploring what’s fresh and featuring 3 of SLC’s urban backyard businesses. In August, my girls and I ran around interviewing and sampling various fare from a local food truck gathering in Sugarhouse, which you can read about in the “Let’s Go Truckin” article. A return to tradition, you can also read the current article “Preservation 101,” which follows my passion of growing and cooking — bringing the best of both worlds together.

New features continue, for December 2017, and 2018 January, February and upcoming March issues as well.

Along with writing, my interest in growing food and sustainable living became a CSA business in 2016, taking on the title of Urban Farmer. 2018 plot twist, taking my passion for growing by creating a non-profit community garden and farmers’ market this season, the SLC Veggie Swap.

To explain, my name may seem confusing, but really it’s not. I prefer to be called Jahnava (pronounced, Jah-ni-vaa), however, before 2010, I went by Jen, and keep that for professional reasons.

Always looking for new opportunities to write, collaborate, and promote small, local business. Let’s stay in touch.
