We had the good fortune of connecting with Jeremie Etienne and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jeremie, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Over the years I have suffered a lot of loses, hurt, and pain. I would take 2 steps forward and 7 steps backwards. I know what it means to have a lot and I know what it is to have little. In 2018, I decided that I was going to move forward in life and take my life experience of losses and turn them into wins.
And in that process, I decided to take my community along with me. I consider myself to be a Wellness Guru aka the Wellness Pastor. My goal is to educate, motivate, and inspire others to be great. I learned with the application of simple habits and the support and guidance of a coach, we can perform on a higher level than ever before. We can grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially, physically, socially, and improve our environment, as well.
I grew up in a community where the goal was to graduate from High school, without dying or going to jail. College and any life after that, was an afterthought. Graduating without any guidance or direction paved the way for losses in my life. But now it’s time for me to win and I’m here to tell others that there is so much more to life. This is why InSeason is here; we go through different seasons in life and my business is my opportunity to help others make every season, their season.
What should our readers know about your business?
Well here at InSeason we don’t focus on the physical only but the whole self. That’s why I do health coaching and personal development. Readers should know that InSeason gives 5% of everything we receive back into the community to community gardens like the green haven project and community initiatives like “eat well exchange” who make their goal to teach gardening, nutrition, and cooking to minorities. I love meeting new clients and seeing the impact I make on others lives. That’s why my focus is to stay connected to my community because I would have not made it this far without them supporting me. This journey has not been easy but, I know my purpose and my commitment to my community which helps me to overcome challenges, staying focused on the finish line. Over the years I learned that we all have the capacity to be great, we just need some opportunity. To receive opportunity we must be ready and position ourselves with an end goal in mind. I want every business, church, organization, and individual to know if you are failing in your overall wellness, and need some motivation, education, or inspiration please allow InSeason to serve you today.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would start the day at Surfside beach with a morning run and swim. Then swing by a Restaurant on Biscanye called KC Healthy Cooking for some good clean food and juices plus, the chef is amazing. After that I would probably end the night at Ginger Bay Cafe for some drinks and good live music.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would definitely like to shout out my spiritual leaders who gave me the spiritual foundation I needed to sustain my life. My old fitness manager Kevon Daley who challenged me to figure out what I want in life. Finally my current mentors Roy Heintz, who helped to shape me as a speaker and coach, and Jeff Bost, who taught me our purpose in life is to give back to the community.
