Monday Motivation - Jasmine Evelyn
How would you describe yourself?
I am a lover of movement which likely led me to my career in physiotherapy and yoga. I am quite laid-back which works well in my work as a pelvic health/pelvic floor physiotherapist. I have to ask patients very difficult questions and I think that my over all relaxed personality helps them to open up easily. I am an animal lovers, obsessed with dogs and I absolutely love food!
What does your day-to-day entail?
My day to day has changed quite a bit since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Before I would run around all day juggling teaching yoga classes in the morning and evening while working as in physiotherapist in the clinic during the day. Now that I am teaching less yoga, I get to spend my days focusing on my physiotherapy practice. As a pelvic health/pelvic floor physiotherapist a lot of my work involves educating my patients and the general public via my social media, because many of us avoid addressing and discussing issues 'below the belt'. I use yoga in my physiotherapy practice everyday. It is great to see my patients discover their bodies and pain free movement through the practice of yoga. This usually is a big highlight of the day for me. Once my work day is finished I try to carve out some time to move my body, then do a little work for the betterment of my business. This could range from marketing to reading something educational.
Tell us your most memorable achievement to date.
I have many memorable achievements, graduating physiotherapy school, starting my business, doing my yoga teacher training. But oddly enough, one of my most memorable achievements was being a part of the performing company at my dance school Dance Strides Barbados. Being part of a performing company was a dream of mine from a little girl and auditioning and actually being selected made me so happy. That was truly a memorable time for me.
Any advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?
My advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is always to be of service to your clientele. Genuinely have their best interest at heart. They can tell when you actually care about them and are not just trying to get money out of their pockets. Once you care, you will likely keep that client and their referrals for life. Also remember to do your taxes!
