Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jessica Garet, founder of AiRE Healing, located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a somatic intuitive and breathwork facilitator. I offer experiential healing practices that privilege the body's communication. Our body has its own language that requests slowing down and tuning into our soul's intuitive messaging. The space I hold invites a client to do a different kind of listening. My approach is based on soul-centered somatic practices, harnessing the power of breathwork, tarot, and tracking body sensations. This creative healing experience offers clients the opportunity to explore their lived experiences from a place of reimagining and remembering.
Tell us about yourself
I’m Jessica Garet, a therapist, creative, empath, and soul-centered guide. I began my career as a singer-songwriter, always fascinated by storytelling and using my words and voice, and I felt the sense to connect to others. The performance world left me longing for a deeper connection and a safer community. Simultaneously I had begun seeking support through therapy and recognized in this space a desire to be a part of a profession that ideally was working with others towards healing.
Over the last 18 years, my professional identity as a therapist has expanded, partly because of my personal healing journey. I began to train and work with modalities centered on the body, which ultimately opened the door to more soul-filled work. I feel grateful each moment that I have the opportunity to experience and guide others into soul-centered embodiment.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is trusting myself, listening to my intuition, and never turning away from taking a chance to dream. Especially when it felt impossible, or I felt scared to show up in my fullest expression. I continue to trust that these offerings are essential, and we can all benefit from having a space to remember and connect to our magic.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Organizing my time and schedule and making sure I commit daily to caring for my soul before I hold space for others. It's a necessity that takes practice. I'm still learning as I go.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
I'm going to steal a quote that captures exactly what inspires me, ask yourself the following:
"What are you good at? What solutions do you want to work on? What brings you joy? Figure out where those three overlap and be in the epicenter of that Venn diagram for as many minutes of your life as you can."~ Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson
