Today we’d like to introduce you to Shea Jones.
Shea, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Growing up, I was always involved in sports. I played competitive soccer for nearly 14 years. While I was at soccer practice, my parents were training for their next triathlon. Health and fitness was always a priority, but of course, I always had my eye on that ooey gooey cinnamon roll! When I was 18, I quit soccer and quickly realized what you put in your body is what you will get out of it. I was adamant on educating myself more about weight lifting and what types of nutrition my body responded best to.
I also work at an Aviation company, Cutter Aviation, which requires me to get up for work at 4:30 am. I always use the motto, “Wake up at 4:30 am, grind at 4:30 pm.” We all make time for what we want. I quickly became obsessed with the grind, which has now lead to the position I’m in today.
Jumping into something new is always a little scary. I was hesitant at first, but with the encouraging words and help of my boyfriend, I knew I had to jump into something I was passionate about.
In early 2019, I was introduced to a company called Arbonne. I then started my own business with Arbonne, helping others feel confident about themselves, better informed about health and wellness, and overall, watching them glow from the inside out. Watching clients drop pant sizes, have clearer skin, and most of all learning to be comfortable in your own skin is the most rewarding feeling in the world. Getting to watch someone be genuinely happy with who they are is a dream come true. Not only did it help others, but it also changed my life and I couldn’t be more blessed. With traveling around the world with my boyfriend, I plan to expand this business worldwide and be able to help others across the world.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Struggles are inevitable in any journey. My boyfriend always told me to “Enjoy the journey. Each brick you add will eventually build your wall.” Some struggles along the way were self-doubt. Everyone suffers from self-doubt sometimes, and it sucks! I doubted if I was a good enough influence to others. I then had to refer back to my prior reference of having a positive and encouraging attitude. A positive attitude will always open more opportunities.
My advice for other women is to always go after what you’re passionate about. No matter how hard you think the battle may be, what others will think, or even if you think you simply can’t do it. Reach out to others for advice, you will be surprised at how open and kind some people are. Never be afraid to ask for help. You only have one body and one life, and an unlimited amount of smiles.
Please tell us more about your business, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
My business is based on health and wellness. This includes nutrition, skincare, bath and body, hair and makeup. I love getting people introduced with nutrition. Most people aren’t aware of what they are putting in their body and are quite surprised by what can happen if you fuel your body with the right nutrition.
I am by far most proud of being able to influence others to become a healthier version of themselves. The healthier you are, the better you feel, and the better you look. Because who doesn’t look great with a smile on their face?
What sets me apart from others is that I appreciate everyone for who they are. Helping others is what I am passionate about. Everyone faces struggles in life and I will be their every step of the way.
Were there people and/or experiences you had in your childhood that you feel laid the foundation for your success?
I do believe that being active from such a young age definitely influenced my business later on in life. Starting off with a bang only emphasized my drive into health and wellness.
