We at the Business Serum are so excited to have Jenn Cassetta for this week’s episode! Jenn has proven herself to be a kick-*ss woman in all areas of her life. She is a 3rd-degree black belt in HapKiDo with a master’s degree in nutrition, and an NLP certified health coach with 20 years of experience.
Today’s conversation starts with Jenn and Laura Lee sharing their survivor’s stories on dark day in American history: 9/11. From this, Jenn talks about how she used martial arts as a way to take back control over her life and rise from those ashes to the warrior she is today. Over the course of ten years, she went from working in a bar at night to becoming a personal trainer with one client to having a roster of clients from all walks of life.
After a relationship ended, Jenn moved from New York to LA on a leap of faith and a year’s worth of savings. Once she arrived, she started her entire business over from scratch. She made contacts, networked, took consulting gigs, and even started her own self-defense program: Stilettos and Self-Defense. Her self-defense program gained popularity which landed her on shows like the Today Show and the Rachael Ray Show.
Jenn talks about the importance of self-defense and why everyone should take at least one class. She talks about overcoming burnout and cultivating a mindfulness practice with meditation and breathwork. Jenn also gives us an inside look into some new upcoming projects.
