We are Jasmin and Chenoa, two creative gals with a passion for making things pretty!
BUT we also love to problem-solve.
Which is why we are here:
To help our friends maximize their impact online AND
make more time for the business of living!
When I’m not playing with my two sons or hanging out with my hubby (my favourite is doing both at once), I’ll most likely be found writing & editing, reading, sewing something...or enjoying some sort of technical problem-solving adventure on my computer (there’s nothing I love more than a good problem that needs solving!) I love being outside, planning fun excursions, and decorating my home. And I can't forget to mention my lifelong passion for thrift store shopping - for everything from clothing to furniture to textiles, and anything else that catches my eye.
Colour: Green (any shade, but particularly a combination that feels like spring)!
Snack: Homemade popcorn (or some little green olives)! Let’s be honest...anything salty.
Place: England. Always England. Because I met my hubby there, it’s green, they have the sweetest cottages and stone walls, and also...sheep.
Quirk: I wear bare feet most of the year. Yes, even in winter. I have a pair of sheep-wool liners that I transfer from pair to pair all year round and they keep my feet cool in summer, cozy in winter, and smelling good all year round. Is this weird? Okay, maybe this is weird, but it isn’t called a quirk for nothing.
I can often be found behind a camera or planning my next adventure! I have spent more hours in Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom then I could count. I love making things beautiful, taking detailed notes, sipping a cup of tea & reading a good book. I also happen to be very fond of walking, including vertically up mountains which is sometimes known as hiking.
I’m blessed to be related to some of my favourite people, and there are a lot of them (yay big families!). So no apologies for being the proud aunty who is always mentioning her really cute niece and nephews.
Colour: Blush Pink, which has come be known as millennial pink (you can google it)
Snack: Fruit! I could live on fruit!!! But also chocolate - specifically Lindt chocolate!
Place: At the lake. Sunshine + water + toes in the sand = happy me! Unless my favourite place can be somewhere I’ve never actually been in which case it’s Hawaii.Quirk: I hate eating fruit straight out of the refrigerator. Cold apples...uh, no thanks! My family teases me for “warming-up” my fruit by letting it sit on the countertop before I eat it. The one exception to this rule is watermelon...but really, does anyone actually like warm watermelon?
Our first true meeting was in 2011, in a booth with red vinyl seats at a restaurant just off the highway, and we realized early on - over cups of tea and breakfast - that we shared a lot of common ground. Since that time there have been many trips back and forth between the cities where we live for more breakfast dates and many more photoshoots.
Our friendship is now closing in on 10 years, but pairing up to start The Content Corner has been the most fun by far as we share a common dream! Building a business on a foundation of friendship has its own set of interesting challenges, but mostly...it’s pure fun!
The Content Corner emerged as a business idea as we both worked in separate industries - Jasmin as a real estate agent, Chenoa as a photographer - and saw the advantage in our own businesses of consistently posting online, not to mention the value of having excellent, and beautiful, content. However, we also shared a sense of the overwhelm that can be involved with the task, and realized that having the right tools to simplify the process made a world of difference.
That’s WHY we both jumped in with excitement at the thought of helping other women - small business owners, professionals, creatives, mompreneurs etc. - overcome the overwhelm we felt, and see success online without making “posting-to-Insta” a full-time job.
But great content goes beyond Instagram feeds and includes looking professional everywhere you show up online - website, blog, email newsletter or other social media platforms like Facebook & Pinterest.
We are here to cheer you on and give you resources to elevate your online presence - without spending half your day on your phone.
