3
00:00:05,310 –> 00:00:08,039
successful entrepreneur she took what

4
00:00:08,039 –> 00:00:10,019
she was passionate about was determined

00:00:10,019 –> 00:00:11,639
to create a successful business that

6
00:00:11,639 –> 00:00:13,019
would improve people’s quality of life

7
00:00:13,019 –> 00:00:15,509
and was flexible to make changes when

8
00:00:15,509 –> 00:00:18,240
she needed to jessica is a great role

9
00:00:18,240 –> 00:00:21,020
model for me as an aspiring entrepreneur

10
00:00:21,020 –> 00:00:24,060
when Jessica graduated college she began

11
00:00:24,060 –> 00:00:26,730
looking for a teaching job but in 2009

12
00:00:26,730 –> 00:00:28,500
as you may know there were no teaching

13
00:00:28,500 –> 00:00:30,810
jobs she cried on her couch for weeks

14
00:00:30,810 –> 00:00:32,790
and only now realizes what a blessing in

15
00:00:32,790 –> 00:00:35,969
disguise this was jessica love doing hot

16
00:00:35,969 –> 00:00:37,860
yoga in Long Island New York and thought

17
00:00:37,860 –> 00:00:39,510
it could be really popular in Albany

18
00:00:39,510 –> 00:00:42,420
where she was living after college this

19
00:00:42,420 –> 00:00:43,920
story showed me that sometimes when

20
00:00:43,920 –> 00:00:45,690
things don’t go as planned that’s

21
00:00:45,690 –> 00:00:47,160
because there’s something bigger and

22
00:00:47,160 –> 00:00:49,379
better out there I will try to remember

23
00:00:49,379 –> 00:00:51,629
this story if I get discouraged and know

24
00:00:51,629 –> 00:00:52,949
that if I work hard and reevaluate

25
00:00:52,949 –> 00:00:55,469
what’s important to me everything will

26
00:00:55,469 –> 00:00:57,090
end up falling into place even better

27
00:00:57,090 –> 00:01:00,140
than I had originally hoped it would

28
00:01:00,140 –> 00:01:02,550
Jessica had no business experience when

29
00:01:02,550 –> 00:01:04,949
she opened up her yoga studio I asked

30
00:01:04,949 –> 00:01:06,150
her how she knew how to even begin

31
00:01:06,150 –> 00:01:08,520
starting a business you don’t need to

32
00:01:08,520 –> 00:01:10,080
know everything the day you open your

33
00:01:10,080 –> 00:01:11,939
business I kind of just figured it out

34
00:01:11,939 –> 00:01:14,670
as I went Jessica said very nonchalantly

35
00:01:14,670 –> 00:01:16,950
you find people as you need them and

36
00:01:16,950 –> 00:01:18,630
it’s nice because you already we’ll know

37
00:01:18,630 –> 00:01:20,360
a lot of people who will help you

38
00:01:20,360 –> 00:01:22,770
Jessica’s laid-back attitude assures me

39
00:01:22,770 –> 00:01:24,479
that all of the information I need is

40
00:01:24,479 –> 00:01:26,430
there I just have to ask for help and

41
00:01:26,430 –> 00:01:29,549
learn from those around me once

42
00:01:29,549 –> 00:01:31,770
Jessica’s business was open her customer

43
00:01:31,770 –> 00:01:33,390
service set her business apart from the

44
00:01:33,390 –> 00:01:36,150
rest as one of Jessica’s customers I can

45
00:01:36,150 –> 00:01:37,500
attest to what great customer service

46
00:01:37,500 –> 00:01:40,829
the hot yoga spot has by the second time

47
00:01:40,829 –> 00:01:42,930
I went into the studio Jessica knew my

48
00:01:42,930 –> 00:01:45,689
name ask me about school and asked if my

49
00:01:45,689 –> 00:01:47,630
mom like the CD she burned for her I

50
00:01:47,630 –> 00:01:50,100
would agree with Jessica when she said

51
00:01:50,100 –> 00:01:51,810
that having great customer service is a

52
00:01:51,810 –> 00:01:53,159
big reason that she’s been so

53
00:01:53,159 –> 00:01:56,340
successful I figured having a successful

54
00:01:56,340 –> 00:01:57,960
business would come with endless hours

55
00:01:57,960 –> 00:01:59,640
working and stressful nights and

56
00:01:59,640 –> 00:02:02,189
weekends tying up loose ends but Jessica

57
00:02:02,189 –> 00:02:03,659
made it sound like just the opposite

58
00:02:03,659 –> 00:02:06,030
when I saw Jessica she said she had a

59
00:02:06,030 –> 00:02:08,489
really busy day her day consisted of

60
00:02:08,489 –> 00:02:11,008
getting a facial meeting with me meeting

61
00:02:11,008 –> 00:02:12,959
with her lawyer grooming her dog and

62
00:02:12,959 –> 00:02:15,330
getting her nails done of course she had

63
00:02:15,330 –> 00:02:17,370
her phone on her was keeping up on the

64
00:02:17,370 –> 00:02:19,470
company’s emails and had to stop into

65
00:02:19,470 –> 00:02:21,030
the studio to make sure everything was

66
00:02:21,030 –> 00:02:23,250
running according to plan but other than

67
00:02:23,250 –> 00:02:25,140
that the day seemed pretty awesome to me

68
00:02:25,140 –> 00:02:28,549
and this was a weekday keep in mind

69
00:02:28,549 –> 00:02:30,690
Jessica makes owning a business look

70
00:02:30,690 –> 00:02:32,549
like a fairy tale and while I’m sure

71
00:02:32,549 –> 00:02:34,530
it’s not all fun and games she makes me

72
00:02:34,530 –> 00:02:36,470
believe it can be a lot of fun and games

73
00:02:36,470 –> 00:02:39,209
jessica is a perfect example of a

74
00:02:39,209 –> 00:02:41,549
successful entrepreneur she has created

75
00:02:41,549 –> 00:02:43,560
a business that she is proud of makes

76
00:02:43,560 –> 00:02:45,540
enough money to live very comfortably is

77
00:02:45,540 –> 00:02:47,609
helping other people be happy and

78
00:02:47,609 –> 00:02:49,709
healthy and has free time to spend with

79
00:02:49,709 –> 00:02:52,829
friends and family or just relax while

80
00:02:52,829 –> 00:02:55,230
her definition definition of success may

81
00:02:55,230 –> 00:02:56,940
be a little different than mine she

82
00:02:56,940 –> 00:02:59,069
proves that it’s not out of my reach for

83
00:02:59,069 –> 00:03:01,109
me to do what I love make people happy

84
00:03:01,109 –> 00:03:04,290
enjoy free time eat good food and live

85
00:03:04,290 –> 00:03:05,819
in the moment all while owning a

86
00:03:05,819 –> 00:00:00,000
business
