What Lessons Jennifer Nicholson Learned From Being An Athlete That She Applied to Her Business

Published

on

Growing up in California, Jennifer Nicholson has been active in playing sports. She played basketball alongside some of the most talented players in the nation. Now residing in Colombia with her husband and two children, Jennifer is the CEO of a large virtual assistance company that helps its employees earn more than the usual pay from call centers.

But despite holding such a prestigious position, Jennifer still uses the lessons she learned from sports into how she handles business. 

“I have learned to push through pain and failure. I credit much of my success to my mindset training. An entrepreneur who wants success will need to utilize personal development techniques and strategies to assist them on that journey because it takes a special kind of person to persevere through constant failure, which is inevitable in entrepreneurship,” she said. 

Creating Profit For Others 

Through her virtual assistance company, Jennifer gets to help several people in the form of the clients who avail their services as well as the employees who are working under them. 

Her company supports more than 50 clients and pays their agents more than any call center in Colombia. It also has an ongoing key project that aims to teach and empower agents to excel and absorb new skills that will set them up for success and financial freedom.

“Our mission is to create a community full of mindful, positive, and ambitious persons– our core values represent respect, accountability, and integrity,” she said. 

For Jennifer, these values are the ones that can secure success for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to follow in her footsteps. 

“I believe intention, integrity, and implementation are the most important ingredients to maintaining your path to success,” she said.

Taking The Leap for Love 

After college, Jennifer started to travel all over the United States. She later got back in touch with an old high school friend who is from Colombia. They would later fall in love. Jennifer then took a leap of faith and decided to sell all her possessions and travel overseas to begin a new chapter in her life.

“People would say to me, ‘It’s crazy how you would give up everything for love.’ And I would say, ‘I think it’s crazy that you wouldn’t,’” she said.

This leap of faith proved to be more than advantageous for Jennifer and her family because not only does she get to live out her days filled with love, but she also managed to start a career that has helped many others.
