- What made you aspire to be an entrepreneur?
Well, first, I am a Scorpio so I don’t like taking orders from others very well! LOL! In all seriousness though… First, I saw a need for a more comprehensive approach as a physical therapist, coach, and speaker that would optimize peoples’ overall health and EMPOWER them to get the life, the relationships, the $$$ they wanted. I felt I could offer that. Second, I wanted more autonomy with my life…to create flexibility to be there in my own way for my clients, my family, and my friends. Third, I saw the need for entrepreneurs in the community, country and world. How much they create EMPOWERMENT for others, beautiful financial opportunities for their team and more. Finally, some of the people I respect most in this life are or have been entrepreneurs…there is a certain breed that attracts entrepreneurs…they are full of ambition, courage, creativity, humility, leadership, love, expansion and MORE. I wanted to connect with other ROCKSTARS! I am a constant student and truly believe I can level up my game as an entrepreneur and human being by “masterminding” with other beautiful souls.
- What is the one thing you wish you had known before starting your own business?
YOU can’t do it alone! You don’t have all the skills to create an EPIC business… SOOO… Invest in other peoples’ skill sets quickly! You will move more effectively and efficiently in your business and YOU will have SUCCESS.
- What has been the most successful avenue for building and growing your brand/business (social media, ads, word of mouth, referrals, etc.)?
For Jennifer Watson Leadership- Social media for sure along with my Mastermind groups. I started this practice with a focus on virtual coaching along with speaking engagements on social media ant this was by far my most successful avenue. But a close second was word of mouth and also referrals. It feels good to have someone recommend me for sure!
For Watson Wellness- Since this is my brick & mortar business, definitely word of mouth and referrals. It feels good to help create health & wellness for someone and they connect someone else to me that needs support in their health + wellness journey.
- What are the aspects of your business that you enjoy the most?
The autonomy and flexibility of having a business. I can do what I want, when I want.
- What do you love doing in your free time to refuel and have fun?
I am very outdoors person! I love to run, hike, paddle board, and do yoga. I LOVE to dance! I am introvert by nature so I love my down time to reflect, read, learn, and rejuvenate. I also love to connect with family and friends. Love my God as well and my spiritual walk keeps me grounded and always reminded of what is important and how I can serve better.
