About SocEnt
Joined September 2015
My name is Jess. My username is SocEnt, which stands for social entrepreneur. I want to use business profits to create positive change in my community. The handsome gent in my profile picture with me is my wonderful boyfriend, Brian. He has a 4 year old daughter, Layla, from a previous relationship that is such a treasure and I adore that little girl. I don't have kids of my own yet... I never really wanted to bring kids into this world until I could provide for them properly.

Originally from Upstate New York farm country but now live in Hampton Roads, Virginia. I was in the US Navy for 6 years (2005-2011). Had planned on doing the full 20 years and retiring at 38, but life had other plans for me. I broke my knee and messed up my lower back, so I was medically retired at 24 years old. I struggled for a while trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life now. So, I found myself volunteering at local homeless shelters and support organizations and I realized that I wanted to help prevent the homelessness from ever happening in the first place. Specifically, I wanted to help prevent veteran homelessness. It really has become a passion of mine and I am working to build a business around this passion. (Haven't quite figured this part out yet, but I am confident that I will =)

New to online business. Full time college student getting ready to graduate in a few months, start my Masters Degree, and would like to start a business instead of looking for a job. Had started a blog of my own but haven't had the results I wanted and don't really feel like the content that I have been putting out is "authentically me". I feel like deep down I am a little nervous to really put myself out there. Not quite sure if the business idea I have right now is really what I want to stick with. Guess I am little all over the place right now, which is why I am here =)

Great goals Jess,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Thanks Carson. I love this group already! I have struggled for years to try to make a steady income online, maybe I should have looked for this sooner.

Hello Jess,

Its okay to be a bit "all over the place" when first starting out her in the WA community. You have great resources to help sort things out. One that I have always appreciated among the many is what Nathaniel wrote here: You already have your niche ideas...I realize this, but the mindset and insight in this post was very helpful to me. Maybe for you too.

Give this time...especially as you are completing your higher education. You will be surprised what you are going to generate as your online business blossoms!

Linda

P.S. Thank you for your kind words in my profile! And of course for your follow!
