What inspired you to become a focus coach and motivational speaker?
What inspired me was that there is a lack of encouraging and uplifting right here in our homes, in our neighborhoods, etc. I want to be the example, not just for my own children. But for their friends, the youth at my church and adults that don’t have that push or support system.
What are some of your goals for the future of Jolie Rashawn LLC?
I have a few different coaching packages that I want to see flourish. I have an awesome class called S.C.R.E.A.M. that gives you six steps to helping you get focused and take back over your life.
What helped you get where you are today and what steps did you take?
I thank God for my coach, Angela Brand. She pushed me, because she saw the potential that I didn’t see on my own. That made me want to do the same for others. Show them their greater purpose and to be that support system in their corner. I took the motivational speaker and life coach class together. 16 plus weeks of training, knowledge, breaking down at times, but also building back up. I had to accept what is and love all my flaws that came with that. I had to give up fear, I had to replace it with courage and strength.
How long have you been acting and how did you get involved in acting?
Honestly all my life, I was in Drama and Theatre since 2nd grade. It allowed me to deal with my personal problems, feelings and learn to hide them. It also taught me I can be anyone or do anything I put my mind to.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
Don’t let negative influences stop you. Take your time writing, go back over what you wrote. You always find what you can add/take away, writing a book is a big step. You must be willing to be transparent, ready to take on the good and the bad that will come from it. Tell yourself daily, “you got this”. Sometimes you must encourage yourself to keep going and to keep pushing.
What do you want your supporters to know about you?
I am such a humble person, I want to see everyone win. My relationship with God has grown and has allowed me to have a different outlook on life. If my story can help someone make it, then I have won for the day. It’s all about being helpers to one another really.
What’s something interesting about you that most people don’t know?
I am very shy. Most people wouldn’t think that at all, but I am.
What’s a random hobby you’ve always wanted to try but never have?
I have always wanted to get in the studio and rap, lol. I also want to be a Zumba instructor.
What makes you smile and what scares you the most?
The happiness of others makes me smile every time. I will sacrifice my own smile to put one on someone else face. My fear is to fail my clients. I don’t want to let anyone down, so I must do everything in my power to succeed.
Has there been an incidence that has changed your life forever?
Of course. I have four, lol, my heartbeats! Elisha, Micah, Laila and Jemiyah. I can’t give up, I can’t fail!
