We had the good fortune of connecting with Jane M Powers and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jane M, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Ironically, my success factor turns out to be an illusion. I have created three multi-million dollar businesses and all along I thought the single factor in my success was my drive. To my surprise, I discovered my drive was only my addiction to more, and my success was my message. My message is the true force in success. It is based on my inner truth. A truth that gives way to my voice. In your voice, is your power and in your power, you can do anything! Simon Sinek is brilliant in encouraging others to find their ‘why’. I like to take it one step further. I believe behind every ‘why’ there is a deeper ‘why’. Find that ‘why’ and you will find your success factor. My ‘why’ behind the ‘why’ is to show my complicated family I am not what they said, nor am I what happened to me. Each person has a mission to prove something about themselves or prove someone else wrong. Start a fire under that ‘why’ and you will find great success.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I NEVER apologize for being ME! This was, by far, the toughest lesson I was forced to learn as a business owner. I grew up in a complicated family resulting in a constant struggle with my sense of self and worthiness. I was a sales professional for years before starting my own business. I could sell anything at any time. Yet, the day I started selling “myself”, I had endless doubt. All the old family messages came front and center. The primary message? What I had to say was useless. Enough was enough, I had been silent too long. So I set out on a journey to find my voice. In my voice, is my power. In my power, I can do anything. My business stands out because I am authentic in my communication. I support others in finding their voices, whether on stage, on video, in sales, or in their personal life. I am most excited about my second book coming out May 11, 2021, Revealing the Missing Peace. It is a book for survivors of trauma. We are introducing the SurvivOR Method. It is a powerful system taking you from abuse to an OR life. My success is attributed to my inner work. I have been addicted to personal growth since my 20’s. Previously, I thought if I could outpace my past, everything would be amazing. But I discovered the only way to amazing is through the fire. So, I found a method to shortcut through the fire and get to the pot of gold faster.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
