Jennifer Barkan works in real estate for Rose & Womble in Virginia and she came up with a very creative idea, incorporating animal rescue into her Ask Jen Live segments when she features a new home. Through this program, she's helped get over thirty dogs adopted while showcasing new homes for prospective homeowners. What's good for animals can be great for business!
In this episode, Jen details how she started to blend animal rescue with new homes and the enormous impact it had on social media engagement. She also shares a heartwarming story about the overweight small dog Bey.
Jen is a graduate of Old Dominion University and on today's episode she talks about her five dogs: Tito, Gizmo, Minnie, Marley, and Rousey, named after Ronda Rousey.
