Oh and how 98% of influencers are making less than 100K not millions as you might have been led to believe. Yet these days everybody and their mother and grandmother too, wants to be an influencer, which would be fine if everybody had a good cause they were trying to influence.  Terry Torok who joined me in the studio this week has a company called 'Creative Intelligence Agency' and represents rising Influencers &...

 Repurposing Sterile IVF Needles is how now Mom of twins, Jamie Kushner Blicher coped with her infertility journey.

 Jamie an artist, who was emotionally struggling with what seemed like a never-ending process, took those one of those damn IVF needles one day, pumped it full of ink, and pushed out all her emotions onto a canvas! She then shared her art on social media without explaining. And that was how her company 'Glitter Enthusiast' was born. When she did share the heavy secret backstory of her art, a large and incredibly encouraging community cheered her on.

 Today, Jamie is proud to report that she is a mother of two incredible twin boys. This Glitter Enthusiast’s mission is to educate, support, and empower all women, but especially the 1 in 4 who are going through their own infertility journey.

 A portion of every sale of Jamie's art which is INCREDIBLE, is donated to RESOLVE, a national non-profit organization providing free/low-cost support and educational programs to meet the needs of women and men diagnosed with infertility.

 A self-taught artist, Jamie is using IVF tools to make art and conversation. Since 2016, she's been using her art to help bring calm and happiness to others who have gone through or are still going through their infertility journeys. In 2017, her work was exhibited in Washington, D.C. through The ART of Infertility, a non-profit group striving to break the silence around the experience of infertility through art and storytelling.

 Jamie also has made several prints available exclusively to lifestyle brand Oliver Gal. You can purchase these prints through various major retailers from Amazon to Neiman Marcus or directly through Oliver Gal. Or you can commission her to make something special for you. Many Fertility Clinics are commissioning her work!

 Jamie lives with her husband, her twin boys, and their labradoodle named Gem in their very noisy house in Rockville, Maryland.
