In 2012 Jurena and C.F. Hutton began writing and publishing INDUSTRY LIFE, a digital book series from the perspective of those who work behind-the-scenes of the entertainment industry. Through candid stories and essays, INDUSTRY LIFE gives the good, bad and the "WTF" moments that happen in the industry and offers tips on achieving longevity and success.
INDUSTRY LIFE Vol. I is a five star recommended read that has been cited as a "real deal business manual" and a "MUST read on the realities of the entertainment industry". An avid supporter of children, education and The Mind For Music Foundation, Jurena continues to consult while preparing to release the next installment of INDUSTRY LIFE and other projects.
