We had the good fortune of connecting with Caressa Jennings and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Caressa, every day, we hear about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
I wanted to provide a high-end luxury experience for aspiring entrepreneurs and emerging business owners that would take their stress away while they are focused on building their brands. Both personal development and business development can be overwhelming, I believe that branding should be elevated, exclusive and exceptional. I also believe that emotional wellness should be a priority in business so I wanted to create a company that offered both.

What should our readers know about your business?

As a certified professional life coach and certified grief recovery specialist, I am able to provide personal development and emotional wellness coaching with an emphasis on grief and loss in addition to helping people build their brands.

Likewise, with an agency that provides services to influential and high profile clients, it is imperative to be able to support clients as they deal with public scrutiny and deal with stressful situations on a regular basis.

There wasn’t an agency that specialized in both personal and business development. Being able to support business owners while navigating disruption, heartbreak and loss is critical particularly with everything going on in the world over the last few years.

Caressa J Agency is the DMV’s premier full-service brand, media, and marketing management agency for thought leaders, influencers, entertainers, and media personalities that delivers the high-end experience the elite deserve. From producing head-turning digital presences to handling the attention and arrangements for high-profile clientele, prepare for creativity and concierge-style service at it’s finest.
