We had the good fortune of connecting with Jenny Hermosillo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jenny, what role has risk played in your life or career?
If you were to have asked me this question before 2020, I probably would have said “It means doing something you’re afraid to do & not think about the repercussions”, then, not even understanding the meaning of what I just said, would have continued on without blinking an eye.

Fast forward to 2022 ME, CEO ME, MOM ME, WIFE ME, DAUGHTER ME & JUST ME, I will tell you something completely different.

Risk-taking is an evolutionary process. It is ingrained in us as humans to take risks beyond what we believe to be our limits and continue pushing to evolve. There is no US without risk-taking.

When it comes to your relationships, financial situations, education, experiences, Risk is ALL THERE. You just have to choose what level you are willing to evolve.

Throughout my younger life, I would say I was bred to play it safe. At school, I was told I had to have a career at a HUGE company & work my way up the corporate ladder and go to school trading my time to MAKE something of myself.

But, what I learned in 2020 is that, that was the safe route. It wasn’t until I nurtured the confidence in myself to know that any risk I take, I overcome & I evolve.

That’s why in 2021, I left my corporate job & did a complete 180-degree shift.

I started my business in October of 2021 and have not looked back. I would be lying if I said being a CEO was all fun & games. I work by myself as CEO, Marketing, PR, Accounting, Research & Development, Operations, YOU NAME IT!

That alone tells you there are HARD days. But, even after those hard days, I’m here & able to tell my story.

When you take risks, you’re taking on the challenge to be challenged, to Grow & to fail & learn from the failures to become what you want to become.

What should our readers know about your business?
You know how some busy professional women are so busy throughout the day tending to their work, family and have a laundry list of to-do’s waiting for them at every second of the day?

And, because they’re tending to their jobs demands or families’ demands, they don’t have enough time to prepare healthy meals, let alone make time for a workout to reach their own health and fitness goals?
Typically, they end up ordering doordash or ubereats because it’s the easiest most convenient option and they end up having to restart every Monday to achieve their goals?
This is why I created Blossom & Grow, a 90-day online coaching program that helps busy professional women lose about 30 pounds in 6 months without having to give up their favorite foods or spend hours on end in the gym so that they still have time to be the boss babes they are!
Blossom & Grow’s mission is to break the never-ending cycle of fad diets, overtraining & the busy, “I don’t have time” mindset so that these women can do the things they desire the most without feeling guilty, uncomfortable or overwhelmed!

I accomplish this through providing education, application & implementation into each and every one of my client’s lifestyles and phases. The work I do is heavily customized so that my clients not only get results but are able to maintain their health after the program & even become the teachers themselves which is only one of the levels of mastery I help my clients achieve!

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?
For a week-long trip, I’d first have them meet me for Brunch at The Park Cafe in Litchfield Park, Arizona. It’s a beautiful brunch spot with so many tasty delicious flavors and options for the whole family & the service is ALWAYS top notch. Since it’s not a chain, it still has the charm of a small lowkey spot.

We’d then go to the Tempe Beach Park for a stroll OR workout lol. I personally love Tempe beach park because of the recreational activities and the sound of the water when you sit by is unmatchable and brings me back to sitting by the ocean.

We would then book a yoga/sound bath meditation session at Trace Zen Yoga & wind down at the Daily Drip Coffee shop in Peoria for dessert or an iced coffee!

We’d then visit the ‘Protein House’ in Scottsdale to eat a yummy salmon bowl before we leave the Phoenix area.

I’d then make sure to take my best friend on a day trip up to Sedona for a Hike & picnic. After our 3-hour long hike, we’d then travel down to Tlaquepaque for some Ice cream from Cake Couture and walk the entire arts center to watch the candle makers, the violinist, look at the sculptures & visit the cute shops & stop by at Creekside Bistro for some lunch. If it’s summer, we’d totally make our way down to the creek to sit by the water and talk about life.

Coming back down to Phoenix, I would then take them to my FAVORITE seafood spot, Mariscos Playa Hermosa in DT PHX for a michelada, aguachiles & FISH tacos.

Before they leave, I would definitely take them to our new local Kava bar, Meraki Kava bar to hang out and talk about all of the time we enjoyed the past few days.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There is no better person to dedicate this Shoutout to than my husband, Abraham Hermosillo, he is a local barber here in AZ & if you’ve never gone to him, you’re missing out on the best haircut of your life because you don’t just get a haircut, he can make the youngest person all the way to the most senior person laugh & even learn something new!!!

He is the person who has been with me throughout my hardest & easiest days. He is the person who pushes me to take the risks & embrace them. He doesn’t just cheer me on, he helps me see why I should cheer myself on, he guides me to listen to myself & my gut. If it wasn’t for him, there would be no Blossom & Grow.
