Like everything good that is home made, Script and Grain was established at home in the fall of 2021 from SCRATCH.

ZERO Laser knowledge, little to no plan, and a mere gut instinct. 

If you landed here, I'm thinking you may be in a similar place. Everyone begins at the moment of inspiration... so consider this your invitation to BEGIN, and let me help you get that ball rolling with resources I put together to aid you along the way.
Hi, Im Jes-with-one-S,
wife to my college sweetheart Ben, mom of five humans, former history teacher/adjunct professor turned Daydream Believer, and 3x business owner featured in national publications and educational workshops.
I love the sweetest of wines and the strongest of whiskey, wear sawdust by day and a little black dress by night (when there is a babysitter lined up).
I can't WAIT to meet you.
 Jes Smith - Script and Grain

 In creating this little space on the web, I hope to share all my experiences as a mama who left the full time grind, found success in the laser world, and create valuable sources for you to aid building your own success, too!
