We are thrilled to have you join us today, welcome to ValiantCEO Magazine’s exclusive interview! Let’s start off with a little introduction. Tell our readers a bit about yourself and your company.
Jay Vinson: My name is Jay Vinson. I am a native of Montgomery, Alabama. A graduate of Auburn University, and University of West Georgia.
I am the founder of JJV Enterprise and Jay Vinson Ministries Inc. each company focuses on faith based and a holistic approach which involves youth and spiritual life coaching, empowerment speaking at different schools throughout the United States, education, book signings, guest television appearances and speaking engagements at local ministries.
In the past year, what is the greatest business achievement you’d like to celebrate with your team? Please share the details of that success.
Jay Vinson: I would say scaling my business and coaching students & student athletes throughout their adversity they were going through as a high student. Now they all are in college and going to college to play collegiate sports.
But, the biggest accomplishment and joy that I get out of it is seeing each one of them living out their life purpose every single day and how my team and I have developed relationships with each one of them.
What advice do you wish you had received when you started your business journey and what do you intend on improving in the next quarter?
Jay Vinson: I would say the advice I wish I received when i started my business was to study my area of expertise and see how many people are operating in that space.
In the next quarter I plan on staying consistent when it comes to keeping my target audience engaged via social media and even plan ahead of time with my business content that I plan on sharing via social media.
Here is a two-fold question: What is the book that influenced you the most and how? Please share some life lessons you learned. Now what book have you gifted the most and why?
Jay Vinson: I would say what happened to your dreams is the book that influenced me the most as I had dreams but never lived out my dreams. After reading that book I begin to shift my trajectory of how i was living, thinking, and even speaking.
Then I begin to realized what my purpose was in life, and that’s when I begin to live each day with a purpose and for a meaning. The book I have gifted the most was my book that I wrote called Stepping Into Greatness From Pain to Purpose & Promise.
The reason why I have always been taught that I am blessed to be a blessing meaning that if God blessed me with a gift or talent or finances learn how to bless someone who maybe in need. I would say just by doing that my book has really been impactful to those individuals.
Business is all about overcoming obstacles and creating opportunities for growth. What do you see as THE real challenge right now?
Jay Vinson: The real challenge that I see right now is creating opportunities for growth. Being a full time employee there were times that I found challenging of creating those opportunities for growth due to the time that I was putting into being an employee.
But, I had to prioritize my schedule and begin to create opportunities for growth not just for myself but even my team as well.
2020, 2021, and 2022 threw a lot of curve balls into businesses on a global scale. Based on the experience gleaned in the past years, how can businesses thrive in 2023? What lessons have you learned and what advice would you share?
Jay Vinson: I would say businesses can thrive in 2023 if most businesses would seek the help that they need for their organization if they are struggling.
The lessons I learned during 2020-2022 was never be afraid to ask for help if I knew needed coaching, or mentorship with how to scale a business. So, I would say never be afraid to ask for help. But, most importantly be willing to be adaptable by making necessary changes to your business if need be.
What does “success” in 2023 mean to you? It could be on a personal or business level, please share your vision.
Jay Vinson: Success in 2023 means a lot to me. Even with all the things i have in store especially a life changing new book about to be released and even continue to develop relationships with like minded people that I am consistently meeting on a daily basis.
As well as partner with like minded people who are on the same path as me and where we can build something great and support each other business. That’s what success means to me.
