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

Hi Jamilah, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
When I started my business, my intentions was to do training and give nutrition advice for free because I was that passionate about my career field. Once I started doing more work as a trainer and nutritionist, longevity wise I knew I wanted to make it an official business. With a heavy case load of clientele, this helped me shed light on raising more awareness of health. Without any help I guided myself to learn marketing strategies, understanding how society works with holistic wellness, and how to even create my own blueprint to create my future wellness center. Throughout my journey, I learned to stand up for what I believe in and do not let others tell me otherwise! Til this day, I still thank God for bringing me this far despite the L’s I took. 

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Once I started my business on my own it was not easy at all. From fake associates to fake love it was not easy trying to do something I’m passionate about. Growing up no one supported me truly and understood my craft. Pretty much the “black sheep.” After disconnecting myself from certain things and people I grew more knowing my worth and that I can do this. Throughout my career I encounter many challenges, but it never got in the way of my determination to change the world. I just knew to keep going and my hard work will pay off and then some. The world should know, “I , Jamilah Conway & my brand JCXSHRED LLC will never fold on myself nor the work I worked 11 Yrs + hard for. My brand will stand tall and proud and we will overcome change one day at a time.”
