So here's the big question how are entrepreneurs like us who have been hustling and struggling to make it to success, who seem to make it one step forward, two steps back work getting.

Turning and drip. How do we finally break through, and that is the question. And this podcast will give you the answers. My name is Brian Kelly. This is the mind body.

Speaker2:
Hello, everyone, and welcome, welcome,

Speaker1:
Welcome

Speaker2:
To the Mind Body Business Show, we have a very, very special guest coming on tonight. I cannot wait for you to meet this amazing, amazing young woman who is just really taking life by storm. And she understands at a very young age what it takes to be successful. And I can't wait to share her brilliance with you because she has gone through things, experience things, has gone through setbacks, and has overcome and learned a lot at a very young age that will help her and hopefully help you, because the story she is about to tell will help shed some light on what all of us as entrepreneurs go through in our struggles. And even better than that, what can be done to overcome those obstacles that come in front of us and get in our way. So this is the mind body business show is a show for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. And I only bring on successful entrepreneurs. And I interview folks from all over the world. And tonight we have a young lady from Arkansas. I can't wait to bring her on the mind. Body business she'll mind is all about mind set. And that's what happened, is over the course of ten plus years, I began studying just successful people and I wanted to find out what it was about them that made them more successful than, say, me.

Speaker2:
And over and over time and time again, three things kept floating to the top to a person. Each and every one of them had mastered their own mindset. And by that I mean, you know, a very strong, positive and most importantly, flexible mindset. And there are many ways to develop that. It is a learned process. It's not something you're typically born with, and it is something that each and every one of us can achieve and body that's literally about taking care of one's own body. Each and every individual that I found that was of great success also took care of their body, both in physical exercise and in the nutrition. And that's the actual food and drink that they ingested. And then business. It's a wonderful area because it is so multifaceted. And the thing is, is the people that I followed and studied that were so successful had mastered the skill sets that are necessary to start, run and grow a successful business. And there are many of these there are skill sets like marketing, sales, team building, systematizing leadership. And the list goes on and on and on. The good news. So look to m. just one of anything takes an exorbitant amount of time. And the good news is, is no person that includes you needs to master every single skill set in the business genre that is necessary to build and maintain a thriving business.

Speaker2:
You really only need one. And when you've mastered just one skill set, then the rest will fall into place. And I already mentioned in that list that I just brought up the few that I mentioned, and it is that one skill set called leadership, because once you've mastered that skill set, then you now have the ability to delegate the tasks to others that are in those areas that you have yet to have mastered. And it could just be that you've mastered them. But your time is better served doing things from a higher level, from creating and moving the business rather than working in it. You're now working on it. And so mind body business knows all about you entrepreneurs. And another wonderful thing that I noticed in all of these studying. I've done interviews, I've spoken from stage. I've met incredible speakers and authors. I've read books from authors that have not they're no longer with us. I've studied many. But one of the cool things in addition to all that was to a person. Each and every one of these successful people were very voracious readers of books. And with that, I like to segway into a very brief segment. I like to affectionately call bookmarks.

Speaker1:
Bookmarks for and to read bookmarks, ready, steady, read bookmarks brought to you by reach your peak library dot com.

Speaker2:
Real quick before I jump into this and bring on Jesse Terry, who is waiting in the wings as we go through this show, you are going to learn about different resources, websites, things of that nature. And I just implore upon you that rather than succumb to that, it's to click away and go look at these things while the show's running is to instead take them down as notes, write them down like this one, reach your peak library dot com, just write it down. Don't worry about visiting it until after the show is over. And why say that and bring that up is because the magic happens in the room. And even if it's a virtual room, by that I mean, I would hate for you to take your gaze away and your concentration away from something Jesse is about to say that could potentially change your life forever because you are off looking at other resources. Please just stay with us and take notes. I'm running this entire show and I myself take notes throughout it. I've already got some from our preshow chat, but reach your peak library. What is that? That is a website I literally had put together with you and mine entrepreneurs and business professionals who are looking to take their game up to the next level.

Speaker2:
And what I did was I started compiling a list of only the books that I had read that had a profound impact on me, either in business or in personal life or even in both. And you'll see them all here. And look, this is not what I would call a money making website. That wasn't the reason this was put together. In fact, all those buttons that you see there where it says buy here goes goes straight to Amazon. And so it's here really literally as my gift to you as a one stop shop. If you have read the odds are you haven't read every single one of these and you find one in there that you haven't read, just grab it and then read it. And what I found later in my life by the age of around forty seven, is when I finally started reading books on a regular basis, I realized, my gosh, these have amazing impact on me personally and professionally. And so I began reading myself and love every second of it. But with that, every second that goes by, we're not talking to our wonderful guest experts. So I want to bring her on right now. So here we

Speaker1:
Go. It's time for the guest expert spotlight. Savvy, skillful, professional, adept, trained, big league qualified. And there she is, ladies and gentlemen, yes, it is Jesse Terry. Welcome to the

Speaker2:
Show, Jesse. How are you doing this evening?

Speaker3:
I'm great.

Speaker2:
Fantastic. So before we jump in and really peel back the curtain of that beautiful brain of yours, Jesse, to find out how you've become so successful at what you do at such a young age, I want to take care of a little bit of housekeeping that would be sponsors and all that you can see right above Jesse's left shoulder to the right if you're looking at the screen. The other left

Speaker1:

All right, finally at less and then it is time to give her the introduction. She deserves a professional introduction. You ready for this, Jesse? I'm ready. She's ready. Jesse Terry is just twenty two years old, but has made quite an impact. Jesse has traveled and done missions work in Cameroon, Africa, Antwerp, Belgium, Guatemala and Costa Rica. Jessie is passionate about working with children. Jessie is a women's self-defense instructor and has traveled internationally teaching women that you catch the part that she's only twenty two. This is very impressive. She has four children's books currently published. It just keeps going. She is walking for three designers at New York Fashion Week in September as a fashion model on their runways. Amazing. Her book, Ebenezer's Journal inspires children to maximize their potential and use their imagination. Her biggest dream in the world is to have an international playground company that builds and installs playgrounds for kids in Third World countries who have lost their sense of childhood due to issues beyond their control. She's determined to change the world one life at a time.

Speaker1:
Oh, I love all of that. Oh, yes. Just see.

Speaker2:
And speaking of our sponsor, he has just changed his mind. Body business show rocks. Thank you, Jason Ness. And he said your

Speaker1:
Sponsors are OK. Of course they do love it. I love it.

Speaker2:
Yes. He says I've stated three of them. They are great places to stay. Yes. They are not timeshare. Thank you, Jason, for coming on. So just see now what I like to do is open the show talking about what's going on in and entrepreneur's mind that makes them so successful, because it's my belief that our minds and our mindset is the foundation and reason for either our success or lack thereof. Wherever anyone is at today is one hundred percent attribute is attributable. I can set about between what's going on between those two ears in one's head. And so for you, I mean, you've been through some interesting times already. We were talking right before the show knowing that things don't always run smoothly. Things are planned and they don't always go the way their plan and seeing that you've accomplished so much tells me you have quite a drive. So what is it that motivates you personally when you get up and and and maybe during the day you hit those speed bumps, those setbacks? What is going on in your mind that just keeps you going no matter what? I am never going to quit. What is it for you?

Speaker3:
Well, the cool thing is I work as a nanny, so I'm around kids all the time. So I see their faces and I look at them every day and I'm like, this is what gets me up in the morning. This is cool. I'm able to take care of. And if I'm slacking, then what example am I am to them?

Speaker2:
Wow. Yeah. And so the kids motivate you, the very thing that you love isn't that isn't that great? That's awesome. I mean, it's it's such a blessing to be so immersed in something doing something that is right in alignment with your passion as you're building your empire. That's pretty awesome. Now, you talked about we were talking about offline, how you've you've traveled, and that was in your bio that we read earlier. But there was one bit of information I got secretly from your dad. It wasn't secret. It was a post.

Speaker1:
There it is.

Speaker2:
No, it was that one where I learned that you had traveled to Africa at the ripe old age of 19. And I thought, my gosh, what would that be like for a young female 19 to travel to a country they'd never been to? So I just want to ask you, how did that whole experience go and maybe let people in on a couple of things that did occur during that trip? That was pretty phenomenal.

Speaker3:
Now, I think about I actually was 18 because I had been in Guatemala for two and a half months. I had just graduated high school. So right out of high school, I went to Guatemala and that was my senior trip was to go serve in Guatemala. So in September, I was offered an opportunity to go to Cameroon, Africa, because my dad has a friend there and I interacted with her as a little boy who has autism and he actually spoke when I spent time with him. So the mom said, you have to come. So I thought, OK, I'll get everything ready. Little did I know you have to have a visa to get into the country. And somehow I had managed to make it all the way through airport security at Belgium, only to find out I didn't have a visa and I was a little sad. I know I was going to get stuck there for five days. And the lady and her little boy, we're going to go to Africa without me. So I ended up staying with one of her relatives that lived in the diamond capital of the world. And I was there for five days. We got denied a visa twice and then I got to go to Africa.

Speaker2:
Goodness, and then you're sharing with me that you had like a boatload of money in your wallet.

Speaker1:
Oh, yes.

Speaker3:
I didn't have a I didn't get a credit card or a debit card. So I was 19 when I got back. So I had one hundred dollars cash and a hundred dollar a little gift card that only worked in the USA. So somehow I managed to go with one hundred of my own and one hundred of my dad's money. And so the one hundred dollars visa and then the other hundred I had to managed to use the rest of my trip.

Speaker2:
My goodness. So did they have ramen there.

Speaker3:
They had fish that still looked at you and that was the first time I'd ever eaten fish and the last time I was incredibly grateful they cooked for me. But I will never eat fish again.

Speaker1:
Oh no. To anyone who gets involved with Jesse in any way, shape or form, do not order fish.

Speaker3:
That's a cool thing about traveling another country if you have to be grateful because they give you what they have and the little bit they have means so much. So I might not enjoy it. The fish that looks at me, but to them that's such a delicacy. So I ate the fish and took sixty four ounces of water so fast with a big smile on my face.

Speaker1:
Oh, God bless you. I mean, so few people

Speaker2:
Think the way you just described where you took gratitude over the experience, you know, obviously it was grossing you out probably with your food, looking at you as you're pouring into it and then drinking all of

Speaker1:
That water. Oh, what a great story.

Speaker2:
Because, I mean, so many others would just look at it at face value and say, what's in it for me and go, this is terrible. Why would you give me something staring at me? You took the what I believe to be the right track and say, I appreciate this. I'm grateful. Thank you. Even though I'm holding my breath each bite.

Speaker3:
It was amazing, though. I got to work with special needs kids until my gallbladder fails and I had to come back to America. But I saw a nonverbal voice speak and a little boy who couldn't walk stood up when I was playing with them. So was totally God. But besides getting sick and everything that happened, I wouldn't change a thing. It was the most amazing experience.

Speaker2:
Tell me more about the nonverbal voice. Let's go deeper into that.

Speaker3:
So I was working in so when I was supposed to be there for the five days I was stuck in Belgium, we were starting the first ever special needs school in Cameroon, Africa. So I missed all the training. So when I got there, I ended up working with the preschool kids and there was a little boy and I just fell in love with him. I would have taken him home if I could. His name was Gabriel and he was born with the disease that left him unable to walk. So whatever I play with him, I'd have to help him and the other people there would massage his legs. And one day I was playing with them and he said, Mom. And he stood up and I was like, oh, my gosh, I love you. And then the other little boy, he had gotten sick and I was giving him a bath and I was singing to him and he actually spoke and he talked to me and he was singing along to the song. So it was pretty cool.

Speaker2:
Oh, my gosh, that is cool. As somebody you might know your Terry, that is one beautiful guess.

Speaker3:
That's my mom.

Speaker2:
It's a family, so I love it. Fantastic. Wow, that's pretty amazing. And you've had a lot of experience with such a young age. I mean, for books. Yeah. I'll be the first to admit I've got one book that's 90 percent done. It has been that way for over two years now and I still have yet to publish my first book. And you have four at the age of twenty two. And you were telling me earlier that you've sold them all, all the books that you've written are gone. You don't have any more physical books to offer. And look, I don't care if that's ten twenty fifty two hundred five thousand. There are so many entrepreneurs out the written their books that have ordered a garage for literally boxes full of their own books that are still there, that they have not yet been able to sell them. They'll be lucky to sell one most of the time they're just giving them away through. You know, if you do a speaking event, a great thing to do is bring your book with you and then you could do a signing at the end if the promoter will allow it, things like that. But most struggle to just sell their own books. So I'm curious just if you're willing to share one or two techniques or strategies you used to actually sell your books to people, that you ended up getting them in their hands.

Speaker3:
So the thing with me was before I even wrote the book, I started telling people about it. The little character you see behind me is the very first character I ever made. I'd watch my nieces and they were constantly on their phones all the time. And I thought, you know what? These kids are so young and they're not using their imagination. So I created Ebeneezer and he goes to school where you're not allowed to use your imagination. So all the book is about. Inspiring potential and bringing creativity back into the kids. So that was my inspiration behind the book. So I started telling everybody, hey, this book is going to change lives and it's going to really inspire these children. So you need to you need to get it because it'll make you happy and will make me really happy. So when I took the books to my dad and I run the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame, I'm the emcee for the event. So I brought the books while we were selling clothing and I sold all the books in the first day. So it's getting the word out about what you're doing and telling people before you just say, hey, look what I'm doing. You should buy it because people aren't expecting that. You have to have a bit of expectation and build anticipation for sure.

Speaker2:
Love it, love it, and it's just the fact that you're able to do this, you know, and it's like it's

Speaker1:
Nothing a big deal. I sold all my books. It's like there's other entrepeneurs. God, I would die to get to be able to sell 10 of my books. What did you do?

Speaker2:
It fantastic. And then I heard that you have a best seller in the works. We were talking about that.

Speaker3:
Right, because now, you know, I'm working on it. One of the characters in my book is named There's Different and there are twin monster sisters. And she may or may not have a cookbook coming out with some of the best recipes I have. I don't share with anybody who

Speaker2:
May or may not.

Speaker1:
Ok, she's being aloof here.

Speaker2:
I love it. So what what got you originally interested in helping kids? When did you realize this is what I want to do?

Speaker3:
When I was little, when I was six years old. Now, even before that, my mom said everywhere I went, I had a baby doll in my hand and I was playing with kids even younger than me. So it was something that God put into my heart was one day you're going to I started having dreams as a little girl of these big rooms, and I started to realize these are playground designs. I started drawing them out. So all the ideas from my playground company I have written down. So just as a child, I knew I was going to work with kids.

Speaker2:
Oh, that is phenomenal. It's interesting because it's I was similar, I love it. I've always loved kids, always loved being around them, seeing their little curiosity there. They're just amazing young people. And even when I was younger, like your age, I found myself enjoying being with kids and helping them. And it takes a different person. I know that takes a lot of patience. It takes a boatload of energy because, you know, to keep up with these kids. Oh, my gosh. So God bless you for that. And you're currently in addition to being you're a nanny, right? For four kids.

Speaker3:
I just happen to have my nieces and my nephews. I usually have my nieces every day after school, but I'm working on either babysitting one to four kids every day. And we just go to the amusement park and I wear them out on roller coasters and we all scream and cry. And then I go home and sleep and their parents thank me.

Speaker1:
I love it

Speaker2:
Where I'm out and the parents are just

Speaker1:
Excited as heck. They get to have some downtime. I'm tired. I can

Speaker2:
Imagine. Oh my goodness. Let's see for tonight. So, yeah, you have we're going to talk about it later on in the show, but you have a gift to give away for and this would be great for parents to grab a hold of who or grandparents who have access to children. I don't know from what you say for the nine to ten year old. And so it's several pages of a coloring book. Is that what it was?

Speaker3:
Actually, I just published my next book, which is about an alligator who's terrified of the dentist. So if you have a little one, he's just so scared when they go to the dentist. And this is a perfect book for him, for all your kids, because it's about the alligators. Name is Bubba and the entire story. He's using his imagination, imagining that when he gets there, he's going to end up being eaten by this monster in his mind going crazy. And so you realize that the dentist is not that bad and it's just a fun interactive story for kids. And that's just the coloring book. So there's actually pages from the actual coloring book that I'm giving away.

Speaker2:
My goodness. I don't know if you know how genius that is, that you chose dentistry. And just so many things went swirling into my head in a great way when you said that about I mean, dentists, unfortunately, they have one as a vocation. They have one of the highest suicide rates of all vocations because I mean, nobody, anyone hears dentists. They cringe if they've been to one before this because it's usually there's been involved. It's interesting. Personally, I've never felt that way toward a dentist ever. I look at it as I'm going in and they're going to help do something to improve what's going on inside my mouth. I know there's going to be pain, but that's not their fault. They're there to help for me personally. And I could never resonate with people that had this weird negativity toward dentists. But I know it exists and it's widespread. The data shows it with the suicide rates. But think about this just you probably already have. You're so astute. Look at all the dentist's office you could install these books into, have their kids reading them as they're in the waiting room or looking thumbing through them and then going, oh, this is going to be great by the time they walk in their dentist gone. You're a different child this time. This is amazing. So you have a massive market there just for your book, that book alone. And I'm sure your dad will probably nudge you in that direction or you probably

Speaker3:
Will help me out with that for sure.

Speaker2:
Yeah, and it's interesting because your dad and I are both involved in different networking groups. And I've noticed going through these groups, there are a lot that are centered around dentistry, which kind of blew my mind, marketing, helping them grow their business. And I was like, wow, why is dentistry such a high ticket or a popular

Speaker1:
Item when it comes to the entrepreneurial? It's just it kind of

Speaker2:
Still baffles me. But at the same time, it's a big market and I'm glad that you did that. And for more than just the fact that you're now able to spread more of your books around, but also for the message that the kids will receive.

Speaker3:
So hopefully relieve stress from the parents, because I know some kids that they will cry and not sleep because they know they have to go to the dentist. Wow.

Speaker2:
Yeah, that's just the sad, you know, OK, I take it. So I was surprised that people think that about dentists. I thought that about the doctor, really. Because when I was young I would get a shot in the buttocks, we would say, and it hurt as a kid. I like Scream. And so it's

Speaker1:
Funny because there was one day my mom was taking

Speaker2:
Me. You know, I'm always with my mom was a little bitty dude, and we're going up and down the aisles of a grocery store. And I saw the nurse and she was always the one that had the needle. And I recognized her and I immediately burst out ball in my head off in front of everybody and.

Speaker1:
She's going to give you a shot. She was the sweetest thing, she came over. Oh, I'm not going to give you a shot, honey.

Speaker2:
And she kind of laughed and understood. And now, many years later, and my mom's not with us anymore, and I doubt the nurses either. She was even older than my mom, but I still feel bad

Speaker1:
About that to this day.

Speaker3:
That's funny. I used to ask for shots when I was little. My brother thought when I cry and I got one that's like a chicken pot shot because I begged for it.

Speaker2:
Wow. Well, isn't it amazing how humans how we interpret things differently? You know, it's the same exact thing that's going to happen to you, that's going to happen to the next person. But person looks at it entirely different than personally. That's what makes us all unique. And I love that how we've been designed to be different. It would be boring if we're all the same, wouldn't it? Oh, yeah. Oh, my goodness. So. You've done a lot. You've put in a lot of effort writing a book, I don't care at what level is time consuming. I mean, if you're doing your artwork. I'm just going to ask you that. Did you do you do your own artwork?

Speaker3:
I do my own artwork.

Speaker2:
Wow. Even longer than, like, my goodness. So you're definitely motivated. You definitely have passion. So. How far and how long are you willing to do this until you've achieved a sense of success that you're striving for?

Speaker3:
I don't think there's ever a point that I should give up. I mean, because I have all these kids that are saying, well, I want to be an author like Jesse and I want to do this if I give up. I really think that's just going to be such a bad influence on the kids. So I'm not quitting, but I'm really going to be pushing forward even when it sucks and it's hard because.

Speaker2:
It never sucks and it's never hard, is it?

Speaker3:
Oh, it does get harder. When I first wrote the book, I thought, how am I going to put these characters in a story that's going to impact kids? And I've got my fourth book and I'm thinking, what am I going to do now? Which which angle am I going to go at now? What's that got to do more?

Speaker2:
And so I brought that up on purpose because you're twenty two, yet you have the wisdom of a 50 year old or greater.

Speaker3:
I'm fifty six and I see dinosaurs and I'm a child again.

Speaker2:
But the thing is, you are driven and you will stop at nothing. You will not stop until you have. And here's the beautiful thing I love about what you said is it wasn't because of anything you wanted to try to achieve. It was who was dependent upon you that your Y is outside of you. It's not about Jesse Terry and how much money she's going to make. It's about the kids. And I can't let them down. That's a great that's a great lesson for everyone that's out there. That's an entrepreneurs. What is your why is it that strong is as strong as Jessy's? She's twenty two and had great success for published books. Also, there's a reason for that is because she will stop at nothing. Her passion is that great. And one thing everyone should do is look deep inside and say it's my passion that great for what I'm doing. Yuri has another comment for us. She has such a compassionate heart. Even as she was bullied in public school, she chose kindness, but she's tough, won her first kickboxing match. Let's pivot to that, because I also understand that you got deep into the martial arts as well. I'm assuming that you had a really, really good teacher. I know a guy who's got a black belt I think lives in that house with you. But my five, my goodness,

Speaker3:
Know, I started martial arts when I was little. I was in gymnastics for a little bit and I hated it. I saw what my brother was doing and how he was getting to learn just karate and fighting. I thought, I want to do that. So I got into it. And my dad runs the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame. So I've been able to train with some of Bruce Lee's original students. I've gotten to train with Wallace and I get to be in a martial arts movie in September after Fashion Week. So it's pretty amazing because I was bullied pretty bad growing up and to get into the martial arts and realize I can find the confidence within myself just from being able to sustain myself. It was really a big deal for me.

Speaker2:
Wow. And so when you say you were bullied, what did that involve? If it doesn't

Speaker3:
For a lot of verbal and I did have a kid who was physically kind of mean to me, he threw a metal lunchbox and bruised my ribs. And I would never hit back, though, because I knew he was he had a family member who had just went to jail for dealing drugs. And I couldn't bring myself to take it out on him.

Speaker2:
Man, you are cut from a different cloth. And I appreciate that. That kind of mentality. It's it's not so easy all the time to turn the other cheek, so to speak. And kudos to you for doing that. But now that you have the background and acumen, people, if they are going to pick on you, you can just

Speaker3:
Hit them in the face. Now, I don't care. I actually got my mom said it on the chat, but I trained for two months and won my first kickboxing match in February in a cage fight. So that was so cool.

Speaker1:
Love it, I was telling your dad

Speaker2:
Earlier, I said, if I'm ever in a dark alley, I want him next to me. And so now, Jessica, it's either you or him. It doesn't matter anymore. Now that I know this will take I'll take either one. I'm not I'm not proud. I'll take any any protection I can get. So how many hours would you say you put in to your entrepreneurial activities every single day?

Speaker3:
I mean, I watch the kids all morning and then they leave about 5:00 and I have all night to do whatever I need to do to build my business in my brand. So lately I'm like, I don't need sleep. I'm young. And so I don't I can't really count how many hours. It's always something. And now I'm getting the little girl I watch full time. She wants to be an entrepreneur, too. So we're doing stuff together. So I have the opportunity.

Speaker2:
That's a phenomenon you mentioned you're writing a book with one of them right there.

Speaker3:
You've come up with some characters and we're drawing pictures together and we hope to have it published at the end of the summer.

Speaker2:
I mean, listen to everything she's saying, ladies and gentlemen. She brought in a joint venture partner, a young lady, a young child, to help to work with her on a book together, collaboratively. And they've already set a pretty much a date, a goal of when they want to complete it. And it's interesting to see when you say this, it sounds second nature to you, but so many entrepreneurs, much older than you never do that never set a goal, never look outside and get a partnership. No matter what the age is, it doesn't matter. It's much easier to do something with somebody who's got additional talents that maybe you may not have or just the help right then to do it on your own and then to be able to have the foresight to think of a time and say, let's get this done by the end of the summer.

Speaker3:
And that works so well with kids because I've always loved schedules. If you don't set a date, you're always going to put it off. So I told her in the summer we'll get it done. If we don't get it done, then we didn't manage our time well.

Speaker2:
And that's a universal truth right there to see not just kids, every adult. So we all have these smartphones that all of them have some kind of calendar built into them. So one would not be the right time to start using that for everyone and schedule out things, schedule and everything that you do something big.

Speaker3:
You just start writing one page a day, just put something on paper. Everyone has the passion, the dream. They need to go after it. You're never too old to make a difference for sure.

Speaker2:
I love it. And Calomiris. Well, I need this motivation. So see your year just by being on this show, Jesse, you're reaching out and impacting other lives in a positive way. And we're live right now. When it's people are listening to the recording, there'll be many more that listen to it afterward and that will help spread the word and motivate further people. So just by you showing up, I wanted you to know that you're having a positive impact already and just recognize and realize that and do more of this, get on more podcast, get on more shows and spread the word about what you're doing for children, what you're doing for the dentist industry, that that one's huge. And yeah, get get involved with dentist and get on their shows. They have their dentists out there. They're doing podcasts, which was like, what are they talk about? But they must have something good

Speaker3:
But horrible sound of the grinding on your teeth. Favorite noise.

Speaker2:
So maybe they need a little Ebeneezer earmuffs to go with their coloring book to take out the sound. But maybe anemones are dollar Holon too. All they're going to the the procedure. But yeah, definitely keep keep spreading the word. And I know your dad will help getting you connected and we're involved in that network that we've been been in this week. Right. You and I and your dad. Definitely there's a lot of connections there. You can hit us. Fantastic. So you're twenty two. It doesn't matter how old you are at any age. Some things have to give in order to succeed. Some things that you truly love to do, want to do, need to be put on the back burner at times for you to get to the next step. So what kind of sacrifices, if you would call them that, have you had to make so far just to get to where you are today?

Speaker3:
Definitely my my social life, that sounds kind of like, oh, my gosh, I have no friends, but it's been so much focus on writing my books and working with kids that I don't go hang out with people as often as people say, well, you need a social life. You have nobody in my life, but I'm making an impact. So when I'm on top and you're out partying with your friends, you're going to say, man, I should have spent more time building my brand. So I've sacrificed personal friendships and things like that, just having people to go out with. If I don't, I don't need to go out. I have kids to take care of and I have books to write. You can come right with me.

Speaker2:
I like you. Come join me. That's awesome. Yuri has more, she spent five weeks with me in Costa Rica teaching women's self-defense. I mean, come on now. I mean, martial artist, self-defense teacher, fashion model, world traveler who gets proposed to. Oh, let's talk about that one.

Speaker3:
Oh, OK. When I was in Cameroon, when I was sick, I had to go to the doctor there because my gallbladder had just shut down. So we were on a motorcycle with two other people. So there were three of us on one motorcycle and the guy had drove by next to us, got off of his, came over to us and we had gotten off of ours. And he goes, I want you to marry me. And I had been prepped. And they said that they will they will propose to you because you look different than them. And they might think you have money. Like, I have one hundred dollars and I do not need your 40 year old hand marriage. So I'm still single, not very much engaged. So that was crazy.

Speaker1:
When he told me that right before we started the show, I was like blown away. I like that happens.

Speaker3:
That happens a lot. Like, I'm good. I'm too young for you.

Speaker1:
We talk about,

Speaker2:
You know, just skipping step two through ninety nine. It's like Hello Kitty. Didn't tell you his name?

Speaker3:
No, he only spoke French. He knew enough English to propose.

Speaker1:
Oh my gosh. Oh well they talk about icebreakers man. Yeah, that's a huge one. It's just hilarious to me that I mean do they honestly expect the answer of. Yes, I don't

Speaker3:
Know what he wanted, but he wasn't getting it.

Speaker2:
That's good. And then. Yeah, fantastic.

Speaker1:
This is great. So.

Speaker2:
Let's say you come up with an idea for moving forward like another book, and you know that setbacks occur during these times, what how long how long are you going to stick with an idea before you give up? Like what would be a defining moment to say, that's it. I have got to just shelve this and move on.

Speaker3:
There's not one. I mean, if I know that I'm going to do something, I'm not going to quit until I've accomplished it. Unless I die and spontaneously combust, then I'm not going to quit because when I first wrote Ebenezer's Journal and then I wrote since this adventure. This is an amazing idea. And I got to do it before somebody else does. That's what my my dad always told me, if you have this idea and if you don't do it, somebody else do it before you. Well, I got to get it done.

Speaker2:
Words of wisdom from that for sure, I mean.

Speaker3:
Oh, no.

Speaker2:
Yeah, you are blessed and so are the blessed to have them as parents. They are blessed to have you as their daughter.

Speaker1:
Wow.

Speaker3:
Yeah. She would listen to me. I would have these ideas late at night. My mom would just listen to me talk about it like forget her sleep schedule. She's got to help me out, which I'm very grateful to her for that because she has a lot of sleep for my brilliant.

Speaker2:
And I'm sure she is loving hearing that every parent does love that and, you know, being a parent myself, we want what's best for our kids. I know that's where your mom and dad come from as well. And she's now saying she used to schedule out playtime when friends came over to play.

Speaker1:
That's awesome.

Speaker3:
I said,

Speaker2:
That is awesome. I mean, the things you're doing at such a young age are lessons that many people my age still don't follow. And they wonder why they're stuck and not making it in life. And you figured it out at a very young age. You've been your teacher all your coachable, obviously. Thankfully, you're one of those kids that listens to her parents because

Speaker3:
That is so important when you talk about sacrifice. I sacrifice having a relationship I've never dated, never had a boyfriend. I thought I have things to do. And until a guy meets my standards and can do these things with me, then I don't need a boyfriend. So if I had met somebody when I was a teenager, I would tell my mom about it and she say no. And so I had to stop. I didn't think she would be telling me and my dad wouldn't be getting a shotgun if he didn't think that this was worth it. So, I mean, all the other people my age watching, if your mom and dad say no, they say it for a reason. They were your age. They wanted to fall in love and have that Hallmark movie thing. But it's not worth it if you're not ready.

Speaker2:
Yeah, and you have a solid base, solid foundation with your parents, so definitely that's not so quick. Like I heard this, you said shotgun. So one thing I was told by another, guys like you want to you want a foolproof way to make sure that a boy doesn't do anything bad by your daughter and said, yeah, I will address them at the door with a shotgun in your hand, like holding on to it and then bring them into the house and sit down and and just sit there quietly for a while and just say, you know, I've been to prison once and then you look down at your gun and kind of clean it off a little bit, look back up at the young gentleman again and then say. Don't mind going back

Speaker1:
Home

Speaker3:
For you

Speaker2:
If that doesn't. I never did that. My daughter has married a wonderful young man, so we're happy for her and for both of them. So we never had to do with that.

Speaker1:
But it was fun.

Speaker2:
That would be a great tip for relationship advice for budding fathers

Speaker1:
Who have coming into the world.

Speaker2:
My goodness. So do you do anything like specifically to bring up new ideas or they just come to you as you're working on something else?

Speaker3:
What's wrong? A lot drawing really helps. So I have all these ideas and pictures in my head, so I thought, well, I'll just put them on paper and I also enjoy doing special effects makeup. That's another thing that's really helped, because when I'm working with the kids every Halloween, I have like five or six kids show up at my door and I do all their makeup. So it's using my creative ideas and putting them on someone's face or on paper really inspires me to, hey, this is a good idea. Or maybe I should make the zombie in my next character and it just helps.

Speaker2:
Oh, my gosh. I've heard that's a great piece of advice for people that know how to draw. I can't draw a stick figure from my life, but for those that are creative in that area, what a great way to come up with new ideas is. Just start sketching out things and use that as a way to get your creative juices going. That's phenomenal. So it doesn't sound like you have any downtime whatsoever for yourself or if you do, what do you do for fun? I mean, so you are with kids all day long, then you're working your business all evening long, you know, meet with friends unless they're scheduled then. So what do you do for fun, Jesse?

Speaker3:
I work out. I love to workout. I'll work out two or three times a day if I get the chance. And then I work as an inspector for the Arkansas State Athletic Commission and then they fights on the weekends. Wow, I'm either working out or doing martial arts or drawing.

Speaker2:
And for you, what is what is working up?

Speaker3:
Lots of cardio and running and weights, not too much, because I don't want to like a man, but a little bit of weight.

Speaker2:
Cool, and so most of it's done at the gym,

Speaker3:
I do it in my kitchen, but I don't really I mean, I have the means necessary to work out at home without having to go to the gym. So I think I can work out some work on my business when I go work out again.

Speaker2:
So you must have a huge kitchen to be running there.

Speaker3:
No, I run on.

Speaker2:
That's that's awesome. And just so you know, Jesse, you can lift as many weights as you want. Don't worry. You will not end up growing man muscles. And to do that, you would have to take a lot of supplementation that is meant for bodybuilding. And so a lot of women have that. I used to be in the fitness industry and a lot of women would say, I don't want to look like a man and say, don't worry, you will just look stunningly awesome and tone. You will not look muscular like you can out arm wrestle another guy you probably could just see, but you wouldn't look like you could. And that's what a lot of women don't want to look like, a manly muscle. So don't worry about that. And and resistance training is a word for it when you're lifting weights, anything that just in your muscle is extremely good for you. I mean, even it's even more effective in weight loss when you get to that age, it'll come. Trust me, it does for all of us. It's found that resistance training is better than actual cardio because resistance of muscle just did existing burns fat. And so the more muscle you have, again, not showing us man muscle, but nice tone muscle, it will burn fat just by its existence. And that came because bodybuilders, they ate like I'm talking about male bodybuilders. They ate lots of food to keep their muscle fueled. And then at night, I forgot how many pounds, pounds they lost pounds of weight every night just because the muscle and the energy it put off was burning all the fat and everything that was in their body. So anyway, that's pretty neat. Goodness sakes.

Speaker3:
This is that is really neat.

Speaker2:
Yeah, and cardio is good, too. So it's all good. It's a great stress reliever as well. Gets the lungs going out of oxygen

Speaker3:
And outrun my dad. That's my favorite. Come on. Come on.

Speaker2:
Ok, so we're talking speed, distance or both

Speaker3:
Distance and speed. All right. What do you think? Good for his young age of twenty nine for like 40 years or whatever. He says he's doing really good.

Speaker1:
I love it.

Speaker2:
Oh, my goodness. Oh, good, yes, so Carleo Matrixes so true, my parents wisdom has certainly been a blessing to me. So that's fantastic. Thank you for that. Oh, look at this, Jerry Combs's Jesse is an amazing young woman who has earned the respect of our lifetime guidance team. She is an example of a self-confident person of influence for young aspiring leaders. Oh, my goodness.

Speaker3:
You can put them on a mug. That would be cool.

Speaker2:
There you go. So. Yeah, yeah. Thank you. I'll go with your book series and a mug. I've trained her on red flags. Uri's is not sure what that one was, his response to warnings,

Speaker3:
Just watching out for the red flags and things that could happen. But thanks, Mom.

Speaker2:
Thanks, Mom. Love that. See, I don't even know why she said that, but thank you nonetheless. And you're being grateful, just living true to yourself.

Speaker3:
Something to me when I get home. And she explains it.

Speaker1:
Yes, yes. Yes, yes. So.

Speaker2:
You've done a lot in a short period of time. I mean, if you had to give a new person that was about to start up and let's say they're twenty five, maybe 30 years old there, they're established somewhat in life. And you want to or they came to you and said, Jesse, I already see you've accomplished so much. Can you give me one piece of advice that would help me to go down the same path you are? If you were able to do that, what kind of advice would you give them?

Speaker3:
I would first tell them that everything that I've learned has come from trusting God is seeking his wisdom because I can't do that on my own. I can come up with these cute stories and have meaningful things. But if I'm not trusting God to help me, then it's not going to make an impact at all.

Speaker2:
And so does that involves praying before, maybe during all your writing and

Speaker3:
Just praying that you don't have to be on your knees, you can just be talking to them like a conversation,

Speaker2:
Love it that you just read my mind. Like, what do people think that means that don't know. Right.

Speaker1:
Yeah.

Speaker2:
And that's the thing a lot of people think that make it a formal thing, you know, and like you said, get on your knees or strike some certain pose, get on the ground, whatever God just wants you to talk to.

Speaker3:
Yeah. He's like a loving father. So why would you do anything like anything else?

Speaker2:
Man, so while. Everything about your family is it's just it's all coming together. That's I see why you are also amazing. What great what great foundation that John and Uri have put together and built for you. Do you have siblings? Are you an only child?

Speaker3:
I have five siblings, three brothers and an older sister and a younger sister. I'm the second youngest of all of them.

Speaker1:
Wow. Wow.

Speaker3:
Only one at home for now. My sister comes home on the weekends because she's also a nanny. Her two days a week

Speaker2:
And the rest are gone, huh,

Speaker3:
Either married or I don't know where, I hardly ever.

Speaker1:
You're too busy writing books and taking care of your business,

Speaker2:
Getting it going. Oh, fantastic. So we do have a couple of gifts to give away. And one of the things I like to do, just see with each and every person that comes on to the show, I ask them all a similar question. Now, I hope you didn't cheat and watch your dad show toward the end.

Speaker3:
He told me to, but I thought, you know what? I'm going to wait and wait for a good time.

Speaker2:
Honestly, that's also a good reason. So, yeah, I'd like to ask the same question of every entrepreneur that comes on the show. And it's interesting because that wasn't the plan when I first started the show, but I asked it once and asked a second time and like, oh, oh, it's different, OK. So I kept asking it and it's been amazing. It's a very powerful, profound, impactful, yet very short question. And we'll get to that in just a moment. But before we do that, I did promise everyone that if they stayed until the end, I'd show them a way to win a five night stay at a five star luxury resort. Compliments of the big insider secrets, and we'll get to that in just a moment before I do that, what I wanted to do, Jesse, is real quick is pull up your website and wanted to give people an avenue, a means of connecting with you and getting reaching out to maybe dentists or other or parents in general because you're out to help children and their mindset and to help improve it. So let's bring that up real quick. And show everyone this is Ebenezer's Journal dot com. I'll put that up on. The screen. Wrong on.

Speaker1:
Come on.

Speaker2:
Oh, I have the wrong one. That's all right. So Ebenezer's Journal Dotcom is her website and definitely go head on over there. So what is your website's purpose? What do you want people to get out of the visiting your website?

Speaker3:
You can actually read Imbil in each and every character on there. I haven't got to update it with the newest character, but you can actually go to the about page and it shows you all the monsters and like a little little tidbit about each one of them.

Speaker2:
Monster Topia. I love it. And so these are all characters in her book that are on the

Speaker3:
Asteroid with one. If you ordered the book, you can find out his name.

Speaker2:
All right, so that one's not listed on here, then, no, and by order, the book is it. Which book is it?

Speaker3:
There's Ebony, there's Journal, there's Ebony, there's coloring books, and there's no sense of adventure. And it's just kind.

Speaker2:
Do they have the. Which one has the new character in it?

Speaker3:
The coloring book for Ebenezer's Journal right there.

Speaker2:
There's Bubba's dentist adventure, my friend, that's fantastic on another one, so coloring book to go with it. Oh, this is phenomenal. This is phenomenal, so you can have a book and I mean, I remember being in a dentist's office and they had I think it was called highlights

Speaker3:
And I love Twilight. Yeah.

Speaker2:
And I'd always turn immediately to the part where you're supposed to find different elements in a get out thing. And I love those kind of like a Where's Waldo without color. And I was always so disappointed when I found someone that had gone before me actually circled them with a pencil. I'm like, Oh,

Speaker1:
You ruined my whole visit. So this is

Speaker3:
A great if you go to the contact page is actually a free giveaway, you can actually get some of the color.

Speaker2:
Yes, so here is your gift, everybody go to the Web site you see on the screen, Ebenezer's Journal dot com for such contact. And there you will see a button that says free coloring pages. You just want to click on that. There you go. Instantly have a PDF six pages. You can print that out and have your kids or your someone, you know, kids take that out and do some coloring and tell you if they like it or not and go back, get the book and the coloring, the full coloring book that goes with it. So phenomenal job. Great job on all this. I can see why Mom and Dad are so incredibly proud of you. Fantastic. We'll get that their side by side. And we have some comments flowing in, so we have come in. Yes, home schooling makes the best difference. Yeah, it's a. I've seen others that have been homeschooled, but it all depends on the leaders and that would be the parents. And so there are some that I've run across that were home schooled and you could say, wow. You just knew something was different and not right about those individuals.

Speaker3:
Were smart or they don't know anybody

Speaker1:
Because, you know,

Speaker2:
Homeschooling is a whole different whole different experience because now you're not able to socially interact with a lot of other kids. So it's all behind that area. But I was leading all that up to say you have phenomenal parents based on how you came out. And did they homeschool all of you?

Speaker3:
No, actually, I was in public school from kindergarten to fifth grade, and I was just getting to a point where I was being bullied so much that I just wanted to pull out and do homeschooling. And I had more opportunity to travel. OK, Mr. tried to homeschool, and that was I love her, but I'm so glad she went back to private school, it was the best. She's so much more. She depends on having all the people around her. So that was the best for her. But I'm so independent that it works better for me.

Speaker1:
Ok, good. Very good. Very good.

Speaker2:
All right. Everyone ready for the giveaway? So stick with us, because I'm going to be answering or asking Jesse the big question right after this. So remember us saying don't go running away and clicking away and taking your attention from the show? Well, I think Jesse will agree with me now that it's OK for temporarily to take your case away and pull out that smartphone of yours. And why do I say that? Because this is how you enter to win. Bring it up on the screen. To enter, to win, simply bring up your text messaging app and where you would type in the name of the person you're going to send a text to instead type in this number and you may want to write this down. We're going to keep this up very short because I need to ask Jesse that great question. At the end, that number is three one four six six five one seven six seven. Again, that's three one four six six five one seven, six, seven. And then down in the area where he would tap and then type in your message where the emojis and things like that would go just type in two words separated by a dash or a hyphen, if you prefer. Those two words are peak dash vacation. So pick dash vacation and hit the send button and then keep an eye on your phone. You will get a response back automatically and it will ask you for your email address. And so for you to be officially entered into this contest, we need your email address because our automated system will then take over and pick a random winner for tonight's giveaway. And you'll have an option to allow us to announce that you are the winner on Facebook. If you don't want us to, we won't. That's fine, too. But just want to give you a heads up on what to expect after you enter that information. And I hope to see you win, whoever it is that's watching right now, all of you, we only pick one, but looking forward to that and see who wins that. Jesse, are you ready?

Speaker3:
I sent the text message. I want to go. Yes, I'm ready.

Speaker2:
That's awesome. So, yes, guest experts are allowed to enter, too. I saw you typing.

Speaker3:
I'm really disappointed to see it said no. I'm like, oh, man.

Speaker2:
Yeah, we'll see. And it'll be a random draw for all those that enter. So everyone out there, we know we have at least one entry, so we better get it in there quick. All right. For the question of the hour, so Jesse, this is a very powerful, profound question, but at the same time, I want you to know that there is absolutely no such thing as a wrong answer. Oh, so you did hear this before?

Speaker3:
No, I knew you'd say that because I hear that when I asked my mom something,

Speaker1:
I love it.

Speaker2:
Well, what's the opposite of that? The only correct answer is your yes, it's yours because it's personal in nature only because it's it's unique to each individual. That's what makes it personal. Nothing more than good.

Speaker3:
Yes, I'm ready. You're killing me.

Speaker1:
She's ready. I love it.

Speaker2:
I figured you would be all right. Here we go. Jesse Terry. How do you define success?

Speaker3:
Success is not something I would say I, I agree with it as being something good. But success to significance is waking up in the morning and saying, this is what I'm going to do and this is my goal for the day and not doing it for yourself, but doing it to make an impact for somebody else to a successful life, a significant one future.

Speaker1:
Boom. Oh, we haven't done this yet. We got to do this once. Oh, yes,

Speaker2:
That was a wonderful bomb dropping moment, smart bombs, wisdom, bombs of wisdom, knowledge bombs, they were all there. Fantastic. Great. Great show. Jesse, thank you so much for coming on. You've been an absolute gem. Thank you to John and Uri for allowing you to step away from them for a moment and be a part of this show. Thank you to Ebenezer back there, who's sitting on the desk.

Speaker3:
Appreciate it. I tell you what I watch for like this.

Speaker2:
Well, there you have the model for them say look like him.

Speaker1:
All right, Jesse, on behalf

Speaker2:
Of the amazing Jesse Terry, I am your host of the Mind Body Business Show, Brian Kelly. Until next time we'll see you again. So, so long, everyone. And be blessed for now. Take Carol.
