“I know that when I get bored, it’s dangerous.”

Welcome to Notes on Doing, conversations with people who love what they do.

I’m Jenna Matecki.

“We believed in the power of business, building a profitable business.
But then dedicating a portion of those profits to do good, and make a difference in the world.”

“I think it’s in human nature to want to create, and I think entrepreneurship is a wonderful way to fulfill that.”

“There’s something just so deeply rewarding (scary, but deeply rewarding), about shaping your own destiny”

Check out Cotopaxi’s outdoor goods and apparel at cotopaxi.com. I’d personally recommend getting a Luzon Del Dia Backpack – I have one and it’s rad. Their partners in the Philippines pick all the colors and no two bags are alike. Cotopaxi.com also has a bunch of other awesome stuff too for any adventure.
