Taking your scars and making something better. Jillian Marty on Jessops Journal – ABC 4

(DOUG JESSOPS JESSOPS JOURNAL ABC4 NEWS SALT LAKE CITY, UT) You take a tragedy, and you take the scars from it and you build from it and you make something better. Those are the words from the powerful person I interviewed in this episode of Jessops Journal.

Jillian Marty found herself a single Mom of two young children after the unexpected death of her husband. She told me; The very first Christmas after I started by business my little guy, he was six, he said I guess youre not going to be able to make it to my program. I said, you know, I can since Mommy started her business. When I walked into that gymnasium and saw him up there looking around and was able to connect with him. I was like, Im doing the right thing. I have to fight for this. I dont have an option. That was kind of my drive for having my own business so I could be more available for their lives.

She responded by started her own business called Lavish Brow. Its a professional microblading and now laser-free tattoo removal with Tatt2Away certified center.

Im guessing Jillian may have seen a couple tattoos or even micro blades that didnt quite go right. We talked about the wonderful world of regrets. She smiled and replied; Yes, thats the story of that business for sure. You never get a call that says, you know I really like this, but its got to go. Nine times out of ten, its regrets. Its poor work. Its old. I dont know why Id do this to myself. I thrive on the people that come in from prison and say, I was in a bad place. Will you remove these teardrops? Or if there are any kind of gang symbols or something like that, they want a fresh start.

What does Jillian like the most about what she does?

I like to create better self-esteem and confidence in people or job opportunities that they might not be able to have if they are covered in tattoos and they need them gone. So its just building up another human and seeing that drastic before and after. The appreciation that I see in their face when its done. Im okay this is why I do what I do. Or the people that cry after they get their new brows because they lost all of them during chemo. This is very gratifying to me to give back.

She has advice for other entrepreneurs. You have to believe in your heart of hearts that it is something that can thrive if it really is going to last. Beyond great I met my financial goal now what? Then that kind of fizzles out. But once you meet that financial goal it only gives you the opportunity to keep building on your passion. Its not about a dollar amount goal. Its about a what you are trying to achieve with the people that you help.

Consider this your personal invitation to watch this entire episode of Jessops Journal and share it with someone that enjoys a good positive story.

Everyone has a story. I strongly feel that stories have power. Chances are that if you are going through something, that someone else probably has as well. The shared experiences we humans have can help each other. That my friend makes the point that stories help us understand each other.

You dont have to agree with everyone, but in my opinion, if people would take more time getting to knowing more about others and where they are coming from, we just might find out that we have more similarities than differences.
