The Business of CBD Skincare with Jenna Owens of Fitish
Jenna joined radio because her long hair was more important to her than being a television news anchor would allow. Her hair was a part of her she wasn’t willing to part with. She had no idea that over a decade later she would become more known for her skincare products than her hair.
Today, we sit down with Jenna Owens, founder and CEO of Fitish, a CBD wellness and skincare brand. She shares where her inspiration for Fitish came from, why it’s important to hire quickly, the constraints she has faced owning a CBD company, and so much more.
“I just hope I can get it into the hands of more people so that it can be useful for them. Because that’s what feels like may ultimately be the success of this business, right? As people that need this product, right? And figuring that part out. So yeah, that’s what keeps me going now.” – Jenna Owens

Our Favorite Quotes:
- “They all told me I had to cut all my hair off, and I just didn’t like it. You know, I didn’t like being told that––I’m a very stubborn woman.” – Jenna Owens
- “ I knew my audience, I knew the women that followed me and listened to me, they didn’t have a ton of disposable income. I knew that data from being on the radio show. So I knew who my follower was, I knew who the listener was. And I wanted to market to them, right? To the everyday woman––working woman––and they bought it.” – Jenna Owens
- “Oh my gosh, I was just destroyed by that in a great way. I just went ‘this is it. I mean, I’m onto something here, like, this is it, no matter how hard this is. This is it.’ And it just felt that it gave my little side hustles such a deeper sense of purpose.” – Jenna Owens
