  • I’ve been working with The Daring Press for a few months now. I connected with Jenna to promote the release of my third book and drive overall sales. As well I wanted to get my back of house in order ie website, Instagram and Pinterest etc.

    I like working with Jenna because she keeps me on track. I’m a creative person and although I have focus she helps me focus on the areas of the book business I would normally put in the too hard basket. Also she offers good advice and different viewpoints and keeps me moving forward.

    Toni Grant
  • How would you describe your experience with The Daring Press? Amazing! Jenna and I connected very well, and share much of the same vision so it was very empowering for me! I can’t wait to check in in a few months to build again!

    Tammy Green
  • Jenna from The Daring Press generously gave half an hour to helping me strategise as an author. I received top tips for better understanding sales platforms like Amazon, as well as encouragement to think in terms of the ‘long game’ with social media. Jenna was attentive to my individual situation, and her advice fitted with how I hoped to benefit from the session.

  • How would you describe your experience with The Daring Press? Amazing! Jenna and I connected very well, and share much of the same vision so it was very empowering for me! I can’t wait to check in in a few months to build again!

    Tammy Green
  • I recently spoke with Jenna about using my time more efficiently and I’m only a few days, I’m already more productive and I love ticking off those items on me To Do list.

    I highly recommend Jenna and her services.

    DL Gallie
  • Thank you Jenna for your knowledge, advice and encouragement today. I highly recommend Jenna Lee’s author support services for any indie author, no matter the stage of their writing career.

    Danielle Hughes – Four Moons Publishing
  • Thank you so much for your help Jenna! I am completely oblivious when it comes to marketing, and social media management, and you really made me feel better about the entire process! I’m looking forward to using the tips you gave me, and I can’t wait to work with you more in the future!

    Ky Venn
  • I’ve been working with Jenna for almost 3 months now and her input and guidance have been invaluable. I wrote a book before but never published it because I felt it’s not good enough. After having worked with Jenna, now I have a clear vision, a solid structure for my book and she also encouraged and helped me to be myself and not be afraid to use my unique voice. She also has given me many creative ideas in terms of how to add a ton of value to my book and make it stand out with interesting and engaging details.

    Thank you, Jenna, from the bottom of my heart, it’s an absolute pleasure working with you, your kindness, your experience and wisdom when it comes to writing a book is remarkable and I feel honoured to know you.

    – Edina
  • Jenna went the extra mile, especially with scheduling times to meet, with the 9 hour time difference. She is very enthusiastic and supportive and gave me that extra (kick in the but) that I sometimes needed. With her dedication I I’m happy to announce that I’m already 28 chapters into my book and I hope to release it by the end of this year.

    – Jen
  • Jenna has been absolutely instrumental in the successful creation, setup, marketing, launch and execution of my signature Illuminate Coaching Program for mothers this year. We are currently working closely together to roll-out the 3rd round of the program in September 2021. Jenna’s role has progressed to become somewhat of a hybrid between VA and Operations Manager. She is an incredible operator and she has been integral to the transformation in my business in the past 10 months. Not only have we successfully built from scratch and launched this group coaching program and Illuminate community, Jenna is now supporting me to get everything in place for the launch of a new website, an online course and paid membership model. The value she brings to my business is phenomenal.

    – Benita
  • The Daring Press are such an asset to any business. There is no way, I could have lined up the scale of media and publicity opportunities they came up with. It’s such a relief to have another team member on my side.
