Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal and business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jen Du Plessis, CEO of Kinetic Spark Consulting, LLC., located in Bluemont, VA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Kinetic Spark Consulting is the leading expert in helping business owners, entrepreneurs, and sales professionals build world-class teams to scale their businesses from six to 7-figures.

Tell us about yourself

We began KSC to support real estate agents and mortgage loan officers through coaching and mentoring. It has now blossomed into not only a mentoring company for all types of businesses but also delivers leadership and mentoring through high-end masterminds for 6-figure earners. What inspires me daily is to see the breakthroughs people experience with accelerated scaling, business relationships, priority management, and situational leadership.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

What I'm most proud of is the validation that the methodology and strategies I used to become a top performer in the financial services industry for over 35 years could be applied to a new business line with strikingly similar results. These tactics are now what I speak and mentor about all over the world.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Remembering you are not an employee.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Don't think like an employee. You used to be that, didn't like it, and made the decision to be in control of your own destiny. Act like it!
  2. Remember that you have finite energy. You do, however, have infinite time when you choose to spread your activities and tasks across a world-class team.
  3. Be as good to yourself as you are to your business.

Where can people find you and your business?
