    Savor Woman of the Week: Jennifer Longmore!

    August 16, 2012

    Our Woman of the Week is Jennifer Longmore, Founder of "Spiritual Leadership and Legacy Program" & "Highly Conscious Business Intensive."

    Jennifer Longmore is a spritual advisor, and what I admire about this entrepreneur is that she says it like it is (kind of like a spiritual Dr. Phil), has an uber successful coaching practice, and on top of it, she has conducted thousands of forensic investigations involving deviant acts against children.

    What's her ultimate mission in life? To one day sell her business so she can devote her time to less fortunate children and animals. 

    This hard core business woman believes in healing your story around money so that you can make - and have - all that you want. 

    Read on to learn from her biggest mistake, how she built a six-figure business within ten months of launching, and which 80's superstar she wanted to be when she was a kid! 

    Describe your lifestyle as an entrepreneur.

    I have a wonderful blend of travel, social time, and exercise with creating new ways to expand my business, investing in new ideas and serving my awesome clients through private and group coaching programs and products

    What inspires you?

    Entrepreneurs creating double-bottom line businesses!

    What was one of the biggest obstacles you faced when starting your own business?

    Getting out of my own way!-)

    What advice would you give to a woman facing the same or similar obstacles right now?

    Release the attachment to what others think of you, take imperfect action and create a routine to savor your accomplishments.

    How did you fund your business?

    My own money and time! I used as much of my time as possible to create my platform and awareness of my business via speaking, networking, and relationship building. As a result, I had a full practice in less than 3 months, and a six-figure biz within ten months of launching. 

    What is one gold nugget of advice that you can give Savor entrepreneurs?

    Heal your money story so that you can reap what you've been working so hard for!

    When you catch yourself slipping, how do you stop from sabotaging yourself and your business?

    I reach out to my Board of Advisors for moral support, cheerleading, and tough love.

    Where do you see yourself and your business ten years from now?

    I'm creating my business to sell so that I can have more time to give back and create various foundations that are close to my heart (ie. missing children, violence against women, microfinancing for women entrepreneurs in developing countries, saving endangered species).

    How do you recover from a tough day? Is there anything that can instantly turn your day around?

    Debriefing with a close colleague and a nice cup of camomile tea...

    If you got to play "hookie" from work one day, what would be on your list of fun things to do?

    A day at the spa OR a day at an animal sanctuary.

    What did you want to be when you were a little girl?

    A teacher or Olivia Newton John...

    If you could do it all over again, what would you do differently? 

    When my practice was full after 3 months, I didn't know how to handle the volume. Not having the business savvy at the time, I turned folks away and referred them out rather than creating ways to serve more people such as hiring team members and creating group programs. BUT I now to get to teach others how to do that by saving themselves a lot of time and avoiding leaving so much money on the table.

    Do you have an exclusive offer you'd like to give the Savor community?

    I'd like to share my audio3 Keys to Begin Healing Your Money Story Today, as a gift to the Savor community. 

    Thank you so much, Jennifer, for being our Woman of the Week and for inspiring thousands of women entrepreneurs!
