About Jennifer Allwood
Jennifer Allwood was like many people 14 years ago when she was stuck at an office job that she hated. Her heart was in the design world and in making her home beautiful, but she did not think she could make a living outside of her cubicle. Jennifer became a creative entrepreneur when she started a faux painting business on nights and weekends while she continued to waste away at her day job. Shortly after registering "The Magic Brush, Inc." as an "official" business, she was laid off from that desk job that she hated and decided gamble on decorative painting as a full time job. Since then, she has employed up to 8 women on painting jobs at any given time, painted in hundreds of homes including 3 houses for the ABC hit show, "Extreme Home Makeover". She has been featured on local and national television as well as on radio and magazines. Jennifer speaks at home shows, schools and churches while continuing to manage her business from home and raising her 3 children. In 2013 she launched an online DIY section to her business teaching people how to faux paint in their own homes and how to begin/expand their own small businesses as well. Through the journey of her business thriving and evolving, Jennifer has often found herself relying on her Christian faith. It has gotten her through countless days of being a small business owner and momprenuer. While wishing one day for a devotional of prayers for creative entrepreneurs, Jennifer found herself being prompted to write that devotional herself. Her first e-book is a pseudo diary of being a small business owner while serving the Lord. Jennifer resides in Kansas City with her number one cheerleader, her husband Jason and their 3 wild children.
