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

Hi Jesula, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I wanted to create something that people could relate to. Being an author was never something that I imagined but I knew I had a story worth sharing with the world. And I was tired of playing victim of past, it was time that I own up to my pain and not let it defined me. My book “The Other Side of Pain” was a way for me to find breakthroughs and faced my traumas. I knew it wasn’t going to be an easy process but I was determined. I told myself “just do it afraid”

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As someone who’s always looking to inspire and do more in my community. I am proud to say that I didn’t let fear stops me from publishing my first ever book. I don’t think I overcame my challenges but I am healing and learning. I want the world to know that they don’t have to wait for perfection. Do it now and the journey and the process will create space for improvement and growth. But we must start somewhere. I wanted to tell my story unfiltered and raw so people can see that I’m not always strong but I’m no quitter. I encourage everyone to never give up on their dreams, ideas, and goals. If they can think about it, it’s not impossible.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m always down to explore. I would probably be exploring with them to be honest. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My girlfriend Irie Bennett, my friends for always pushing me to be my best version. They know who they are
