SPOTLIGHT ON SUCCESS: Living Life On Her Own Terms

MEET KIERRA JONES A WOMAN ON A MISSION

Meet Kierra Jones, she is an Empowerment & Success Coach & Speaker to ambitious & passion driven women entrepreneurs who want to confidently & successfully shine in business.

After a successful, but demanding corporate career, Kierra realized she needed to re-empower herself to live life on her own terms & re-define what success meant to her. She now combines her corporate skill set with her passion for mindset, women empowerment, entrepreneurship, & success planning, running two businesses full time dedicated to helping women shine inside out.

MARCH TO THE BEAT OF YOUR OWN DRUM

I’m a first generation college graduate from NJ raised by a single mother. Since a young age I’ve had a bold personality & followed the beat of my own drum (hence why my grandmother nicknamed me “Miss Missy”! Once I got to middle school, I started to gain weight & I started having tons of self-esteem & body image issues. This impacted my self -confidence & how what I thought about myself & my abilities or lack thereof.  Slowly, I started to rebuild my image of myself. First, through style then through the opportunities I sought out and the drive I had to win.

However, this followed me in my successful but demanding corporate career and even as an entrepreneur because I was afraid to step out of my comfort zone. I was afraid to put myself out there.  However, the moment I did; I started to grow personally & professionally.  Today, I empower women to strengthen their inner conversation about themselves & their abilities so they can be as successful as they dream to be.

HELP PEOPLE SEE THEMSELVES AT A DEEPER LEVEL

What I love most about my work is impacting not only the lives of others, but re-empowering them to love & see themselves on a deeper level so they can truly shine in their gift. Helping them see the beauty in who they are & their “shine powers” so they can unapologetically and confidently shine in their gift.

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

My past, present, and future self inspire me. My past because I know the woman I used to be, the way I spoke to myself, the limits I set in my life, and the beliefs I had that sabotaged me from my success. And now, I see the power of getting out of my own way. But the person who inspires me most, is my future self. Because I know where I am going now that I chose to completely become exactly who I am supposed to be and stop fighting it and it pushes me to continue sharing my story, sharing my gift, and impacting the lives of others.

BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR HAS CHANGED MY LIFE!

My favorite part about being an entrepreneur is the freedom! Freedom of creativity, how I utilize my time, who I allow in my circle & work with, location, and financially.

DISCOVER WHO YOU ARE

The biggest lesson I’ve learned about myself as an entrepreneur is I’m a control freak. Which I kind of already knew, but it’s real now. As the CEO (Chief Empowerment Officer) of my businesses, I have to manage my time but I’m also so passionate about what I do. So I enjoyed doing some tasks that I know I need to release to my team. #WorkInProgress

SPIRIT WILL KEEP YOU GROUNDED

I have a very intimate & spiritual relationship with God. It is the foundation of my belief in myself, my abilities, and of that of which I cannot yet see, but I feel so deeply in my heart. Whatever one’s beliefs, I believe that you have to feel deep down in your soul all which you are worthy of & know you have a gift unique to you so shine in it!

YOU CAN OVERCOME ANY CHALLENGE

I had two big challenges when I first started. Since I built my first business while full time at my corporate job, time was a challenge. However, the bigger challenge the bigger my belief was that I could be successful & actually live in my passion. The two tie together so much because by me not fulling believing & committing myself, I really was “playing in business” because I didn’t believe I could really do it so I didn’t make the time necessary to get it done.

THINK BEFORE YOU BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR

I recommend anyone wanting to become an entrepreneur as herself several questions: Do you really want this? How much? Why? Do you believe you can do it on your own or would you rather have support to save you time, frustration, and lack of direction?  Belief in yourself and mission is key.  The moment I started to believe was the moment I invested because my dream, my happiness, the legacy I wanted to create for myself, my life, and my family was bigger than this fear. It was do or die, I felt this, and not investing was more scary then doing it.

MY LEGACY

I want women to know they deserve to shine! 

LET ME TELL YOU A SECRET

My favorite person to have conversations with is myself!! And yes I answer back.
