There are some people who just know what they were called to do on this earth and pursue that at all costs. There are some people who have to try different things and do a process of elimination to figure out what they’re good at, then pursue that. There are those who know what they’re good at, but for some reason refuse to pursue it as a career. Then there are those who are the ultimate hustlers who are great at many things and has multiple sources of income.
I’ve always known Jessica to be the ultimate hustler. We went to college together at Southern University, and even then Jessica was a full time student, interned with an independent record label, and then probably bartended during night shifts to make extra money. I’ve always known Jessica to make sure everyone’s glasses were full so when I saw on social media that she started her mobile bartending service, I was not surprised and really excited. After sitting down and speaking with Jess, I realized that she’s just like a lot of people who struggle with the decision of depending on your business 100% for financial stability versus keeping your job and doing part-time freelancing. Jessica is currently running a business and managing to keep her job, however, she’s definitely been contemplating making that jump into full-time entrepreneurism. Her struggle has been the fear of losing stability with her 9-to-5 and risking it all to maintain her company. I felt her story is very relatable for many who’s trying to make that transition. There’s some gems in Jessica’s interview that can help someone who’s battling the same decision.
