Laura: What is one thing you want people to know about you, that they may not already know?
Jess: I can eat a whole box of Girl Scout cookies like nobody’s business. Get in my belly! Joking aside (because I love not being serious), I’ve been a dreamer since I was little and thinking of all the ways.
I live my life with my heart on my sleeve. That sort of created a tougher skin as I got older but I will always be true to myself regardless and show vulnerability when I feel it is necessary.
I do what I say and I say what I mean. I try to live my life as genuine as possible because that’s how I feel life should be lived. We are all here together, living in this crazy world that is rough around the edges.
Inside, I believe we are all soft teddy bears that need some love all while being shown compassion. Everyday, I wake up with this vision of one day being able to share all the love I have to give on a professional level. My hopes and my dreams are BIG!
Laura: What do you struggle with most?
Jess: When you are your own boss and are trying to run a successful business, struggles live on a fine line between personal life and professional.
First and foremost, figuring out how to balance being an at home mommy to my daughter and son. With managing to somehow find creative inspiration while magically creating time to physically make all of these goodies and everything else in between is a challenge on it’s own.
Personally, I am struggling with the separation of our family, while my fiance is stationed away for a few more years. You hear stories about military families, and you think you can handle it, but it’s definitely different once you are actually IN IT.
I’m balancing this change, running the house, making sure the kiddos stay alive (totally kidding, but they sure keep you on your toes) and figuring out where my place in this life is once more. All while keeping my sh*t together. Yeah, I said sh*t but it’s the TRUTH and it’s raw.
I’m at a crossroad once more questioning all of it. Everyday business obstacles are wild and sometimes it’s too much doing it alone. But my want for it to succeed far exceeds all else.
I trust that with patience and timing it will all fall into place just as it’s always been dreamed about. You’ll have your days of major negative thinking, while trying to rattle it all out of your mind because we are what we think.
And, I want to be positive because that is what Lovinity is all about! However, I do recognize that my mission and message is to be light, love and OPEN and honest about it all. It’s real!
