Much like a gradually evolving courtship, Jenna Blasi, NMD at Sedona Naturopathic, had a steady relationship with health and wellness that progressed over time and eventually led to her adoration and successful career in the industry. This courtship began in college when she was cast in a play and was instructed to abide by a list of healthy habits in order to refrain from getting sick.
“We didn’t have understudies, and we were told we couldn’t get sick since there was no one to cover for us. So, we were given a handout with basic things on it like eat less sugar, get lots of sleep, take Vitamin C, and I thought; what if these things were implemented regularly? And I was like, oh my gosh we have so much control on how good we can actually feel! I was inspired and wanted to get into health and share that knowledge.”
After college, Jenna’s path towards naturopathic school took several twists and turns. For a while, it became an on-again, off-again relationship where she was moving forward during moments of inspiration and switching gears during moments of fear and discouragement.
First, she became inspired to enroll during a visit with an NP who not only addressed her health concerns, but also listened to her and truly cared. Then, she became discouraged by someone who pointed out how stressful the four-year curriculum might be, so she switched gears and chose to travel and study with healers around the world. Later, during lengthy conversations with friends who had been attending naturopathic school, she was once again motivated to pursue her dream; and this time, there were no more detours.
“I had friends come and visit who were all in school together and they stayed with us and just talked shop the whole weekend. When they left, it just hit me. It was this really strong intuitive feeling and I said, oh my gosh, I have to do this.”
After graduating, Jenna was finally content with her role in the health and wellness arena. She was running her own practice, had a great work-life balance going, and had a healthy, annual revenue. She was also doing personal development work and even started with a coaching program called impact lives.
“I worked with them for about six or seven months and was getting ready to do their next level when a Facebook post about FPC got me curious. I got connected with Danielle, had a discovery call with her, and then it was like, boom. I realized that the coach I’d been working with was not going to be structured enough for me and that this was actually what I needed to get to the next level.”
Although Jenna knew that FPC was the right decision, fear showed up again during her initial interview with Dr. Webb. But Webb responded to her hesitation in a way that deeply resonated with her. So, she went all in and quickly learned that it was the right move.
“During our interview I started freezing up and told him I was just afraid; and he said, well, you can pick up that fear and move forward, or you can let it keep you where you are. And I just felt this weird divine intervention, and it became super clear. And then, in my very first month with FPC, I ended up tripling my previous best month ever. I made 45K that month. And this year I’ve made over 180K in the first quarter alone; whereas before, the most I’d ever made in an entire year was 140K.”
Jenna’s financial gain did not come without struggle. She said she had to learn to adapt, make adjustments, and recognize her areas of weakness in order to course correct; but knowing that she has always had FPC’s support through the tough moments has been the key to her success.
“Time management has definitely been a struggle. I had to work a lot and adopt a new schedule. But reaching out for support, watching the educational videos, and the mindset training helps so much. And also, just noticing that wherever you’re uncomfortable, that’s a sign. That’s an area that needs to be developed.”
Though Jenna once wrestled with uncertainty, she now has no doubt that her success is directly tied to the number of people she can reach and the amount of impact she has in the world. She understands that we each have control over our thoughts and on how we take action; and she strives to help others recognize this too.
“Mindset without action- that’s a lot of people’s mistake. We all have a gift to share; and for years I had been downplaying mine for lots of reasons- none of which I choose to justify anymore.”
