Expert Team Ready To Work For You!
Owner / Media Sales
How long I’ve been in the business…
Springs Media, I started this company on my own after my radio career with Clear Channel and Citadel Broadcasting.
I started out with a cell phone, enthusiasm and some great ideas. From the very beginning I knew I wanted my company to be different! We would do what was best for our clients first; we would respect their time and their budgets and give them honest advice. We would make marketing and buying advertising fun. And with those core values, it was a very successful advertising agency from the beginning. We have had the pleasure of working with numerous, successful, locally owned businesses in Southern Colorado.
In January 2010, after several years of being in business as Springs Media, we changed the company name to reflect a well known personality and a fresh, personal approach to Marketing, Advertising and PR in the Southern Colorado “Jen Barry Productions.”
Jen Barry is a respected name in the marketing and advertising industry, and with the multitude of services we offer including commercial production, media buying and planning, Jen Barry Productions was a very fitting name.
"My Perfectly Productive Day"
Time she wakes up:
I wake up at 6:12am - straight to the Keurig coffee pot for a cup of Coconut Mocha or Pumpkin Spice coffee (when its available.)
First thing she does in the morning:
iPhone in hand, I start the day with a cup of coffee scanning new inbox emails from my around the clock producers, late night client emails, dashboard updates and random emails. Read the local news blogs for updates, I check text messages, linkedIN, send a positive Facebook post, cruise social media sites. I'll start my daily list in the notes app on my phone, which is new for me, since I prefer pen and paper lists. Then its off to get ready for the day. After I drive my daughter to school, and start my 30 minute commute into town to my office.
"We make a living off what we get, we make a life out of what we give."
"Be Positive. Stay Positive. Spread Positivity."
Most the time, I don't eat lunch. I don't want to take the time. It's stupid. I don't advise it.
With so many different clients, I handle 10-20 different projects a day. There is never a wasted minute. I talk to a lot of people every day, I always try to leave them motivated and feeling positive. The Advertising business is fun! It is also a lot of hard work, but 'if you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life' right? Advertising and Marketing is my passion, my purpose and absolutely my most favorite thing to do! I am very blessed.
I make lists for everything! My daughters have grown up with this so they instinctively make lists for things and tasks too.
I make lists for everything! I make a date night check list!
Last thing she does at night:
Make a new list for the next day, jot down new commercial ideas, or new contacts I want to make.
10-11pm. I need 8 hours of sleep.

She is a Southern Colorado native and knows the market and will put her artistic expertise to work for you!
When she’s not creating amazing designs to inspire business owners to get more out of their growing business and attract more customers, you can find her making a delicious vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free meal, using food as medicine, exercising, outside hiking or kayaking taking advantage of living in Colorado, enjoying or creating art and beauty in other forms... or answering the question “where do you get your protein from or aren't you malnutritioned if you're vegan?” for the fifty billionth time. :)
