Interview with Jena Stearns, founder of Beyond Laser Creations
Custom laser gifts and promotional items for businesses including embroidery and printing.
For the last 16 years I worked full time in an insurance agency as a producer. I also had a photography business as my creative outlet. I’m a mother of three and a wife. I was used to being busy and tending to others.
During Covid, I was sewing face masks and marketing them on social media. It was very popular and I hand cut about 1000 before realizing I could buy a laser to cut multiple layers at a time. After buying a laser we made over 5000 before exploring other media that the lasers could cut and engrave. I quickly expanded into other areas that I knew were going to sell well in my area.
When I realized that I was enjoying this side gig a lot, and producing better income for my family, it was pretty easy for my husband to see that this was my new direction. He has been more than supportive in that decision. I told him that I could make something more out of this. He believed in me and agreed that this was the right move for all of us. By buying a laser that could keep up with my business goals only made this process smoother and more attainable.
Although we are scaling and building my business now, it's setting us up for a better economic future.
My personality is contagious. I beam with passion and enthusiasm. I'm always ready for a good time. It's hard not to have a great time when you're around me.
