She’s always loved figuring out how things worked. A scientist from the very beginning she craved to dig into the mysteries of life and understanding why things are the way they are after working in the pharmaceutical industry. For 15 years, she dropped out of corporate America to this homeschool of war children. She has always had a side business in her life and shares with other business owners and creatives how to manage a will live a life of children Emily friends clients while not suffering from burnout, her 12 Books 87 online courses for hire for podcast programs and syndication radios all expressed her desire to express her routines with her with others. It’s so much that she has done it. So it’s like wow. Welcome to the show. Janine, how are you?
I am doing fabulous. Thank you so much for having me on today.
Thank you, thank you for coming for a show. And I will like to always start the conversation. You know, it always starts with where do we begin from the beginning, the very beginning. And let’s start with the folks what did your parents do for a living?
My father was a Navy Seabee. And so I traveled around quite a bit with him as he traveled about he was a Vietnam veteran. And then my mother was a nurse, and she was very good at her job. And so both of my parents worked on and off while I was growing up.
Wow, just want to say thank you for your family service always thanking for our freedoms that we you know, we don’t take that for granted. And thank you for your family service. And like to say that you’re a brat, as they say, and I guess that’s a good terminology of my mistaken it’s a good thing. It could be called the brat if I if I learned that by you by by. But you’re telling me this story.
You’re right, being a navy brat or any military kid that somebody says, Oh, you’re a brat. It’s a subculture of the military that a lot of people don’t know about is we’re awarded pins by our father or our mother, whoever is the act of service personnel as being because we travel with them a lot of times, and we are deployed with them. And because we volunteered for the military life without really having a voice. And so that’s why we’re honored those brat pins.
Wow. Well, again, thank you again. And it’s with a traveling with so much traveling you younger. What did you want to do when you were like seven years old? Well, like what did you have any ideas what you want to grow? I mean, you must have traveled a lot, you must have a lot of experiences.
Right? I always often had that question asked of me when I was younger, which is what do you want to be when you grow up. And a lot of times, I would just name whatever I thought the other person wanted to hear. Because I had no idea what I was going to be when I grew up, I didn’t know that I would be in front of people, I did know that I would be in the healing arts of some kind. But overall, I really didn’t know even to the point when I got into college, I thought I was going to be a veterinarian because I wanted to be in the healing aspect of things. But my life like many people talk about you get into college and realize all of the avenues that are available to you and you start making some decisions at that point. Wow. And did you have any role models that inspired you or anything, but he was I had so many incredible role models I had, I was surrounded by good quality people. And when you’re in a military life, it’s very structured. And there’s a lot of discipline. And when I would see firsthand what would happen to people who did not stick with the rules. I mean, it was very evident. They were the ones out digging ditches and doing manual labor. And what I learned very early on was I did not want to be a part of that. I did not want to be doing manual labor my entire life. I have done that. But it wasn’t what I wanted to stay in. And so for me it’s all of those adopted uncles brothers were a few that I had from the military that taught me how I didn’t want to have to work physically hard, because I saw what happened to folks that had that kind of lifestyle. So there was that and then there was also Sam Walton. I was lucky enough when I was 15 years old, that I was able to meet this guy that I thought was a farmer and he happened to wander onto this friend of ours. farm, we were living in southern Missouri at the time. And he started chatting with me and I started talking to him. And he gave me some golden nuggets for business. And that’s one of my best role models I ever had was being able to meet Sam Walton face to face.
Wow, that’s a wow story. The story is like, Wow, are you the degree you do? And are you Is that what you’re doing now what you’re majoring in,
like so many people know, I was trained as an analytical biochemist at the biochemistry degree was very fresh, very new. At the time, it was part of the food for the 21st century program at my particular university. And so I was trained in that and was in the pharmaceutical industry for 15 years. But I’ve moved beyond that quite a bit, and I am now running a broadcast company.
Wow. Is is that some of your hobbies that restart like a hobby or interest? Or do you have any hobbies or interests?
Well, I do have hobbies and interests. But the broadcast company kind of literally fell into my lap, the whole process that got me into radio shows, doing things with my voice, being able to interview people, which just because of my natural curiosity, I think as a scientist, as far as my hobbies and interests, I live out here in lovely Colorado, I absolutely adore looking at the mountains. But My hobbies are very much with my hands being craft, crafting things with my hands. And so being out here in Colorado is delightful, because we have a huge artistic community all up and down the front range. And I am able to be with makers of all kinds.
Wow, I tell you something, working with hands is the best thing I got into recently, you’re not gonna believe this. And to gardening, I’m doing gardening, you know, I would never believe that I would get into gardening. And it actually is really pleasing and pleasant. So it’s always something always working with the hands. It’s rewarding, isn’t it? It’s very rewarding. I love it. And it’s always to see when you It’s gratifying when you see the results. At the end, it’s great working with your hands that you can produce that or any kind of that it’s always good. So at this piece, I like to keep this portion of our show, I like to keep it as like the golden nugget or piece of information that I like to you to wow our audience, is there any valuable information that can help any business owners become better business persons or any information that you can leave behind?
Yes, I think the single biggest thing I can share with you is that if you are inspired to write a book, start a YouTube channel, start a podcast, or in some other way you are being driven to a point where you know you need to share your message in a slightly different way than what you’ve done in the past. Please do it. If you were out to share your story, then I highly recommend that you do that that inspiration is hitting you because there is somebody out there that needs what you have to offer. So the golden nugget is really just when you are inspired to share a message of some kind. And it’s a little nervous for you. It’s a little uncomfortable. Please realize that’s what’s driving that is you are the person that has a system, a tip, or a technique on how you have solved that problem. And there are people out there waiting for that answer.
Wow. Well, that’s excellent. Thank you for that valuable piece of information. Now, tell us a little bit about do you belong to any organizations or group that has helped you grow your business?
Actually, it’s just been a variety of network marketing sorts of businesses. I think one of the best things I ever did was back when I was 18 to 21, I was a Mary Kay representative. And I used to run around with my pink cases and all that and I learned the value of networking, not necessarily within industry or status of a certain organization. But I learned that networking as a whole was important and that you continue to show up to those meetings. So No is the answer. I don’t belong to any specific organization. But what really has helped me grow my business has been the relationships that I had with other business owners through networking. And sometimes I think people forget that. When you go to these networking, organizations or online, just realize those who aren’t your customers, they can become your customers don’t sell to other business owners. Just let them know what you do and then ask them if what you do and what they too can have some sort of synergistic effect that has been the single best thing I’ve ever done for my business.
Now Thank you. Wow, that’s, that’s amazing. Now tell us you come to well, we recently and keto Some of the stories from while there it has impacted your business.
I think the best thing that I can share with people is the fact that I came to while seeking authors because I own a broadcast company. And we’re always looking for we have certain projects that we write books on. And I’m an author, myself. And so I had booked number 12 That I was writing, and I needed authors. And it was amazing the outpouring of support and assistance that I had, as various business owners stepped up and said, Well, I’ve written a book or I’ve written a book. And then they started getting me in touch with their clients and other people in their world that also were authors. So all I can say is that when you come to wow, if you are very specific in your need, and you can communicate that under six seconds, people in this community will fall over backwards to help you with that. And especially when you let them know, look, this is what I’m doing. This is why I’m doing it. This is how much I charge. This is what they get in return. Can you help me and I have received nothing but support and help and assistance. I can’t say enough about Wow,
