We had the good fortune of connecting with Janette Jacinto and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Janette, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
There’s quite a few but some major ones would be ▪︎ getting up early ▪︎reading, especially self development books ▪︎setting goals ▪︎talking and hanging around people who inspire me, who have goals, who support you. ▪︎challenging myself and stepping out of my comfort zone ▪︎having a positive mindset ▪︎learning that failing is part of succeeding ▪︎getting back up if I fail ▪︎stop comparing myself to other people ▪︎staying true to myself
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have partnered up with an amazing company called Monat. Monat is a revolutionary hair care line of naturally based products. A year ago we launched a skincare line and recently a wellness line. I get to help women change their lives, hair & skin. I get to help boost their confidence in so many ways. That’s what I’m most proud and excited about. I wake up everyday loving what I do. When I first signed up as a Market Partner, I was scared. Scared of what people were going to say and think of me. Some people think that MLMs don’t actually work and I was scared of being judged. I knew there was going to be challenges. It took a lot of self development and self talk to finally realize that what people thought or said about me didn’t really matter. I had to keep repeating these words over and over, “They don’t take care of me or my kids, they don’t pay my bills, they’re not me.” No matter what you do, people will judge so you might as well do it. Besides being a Market Partner for Monat, I’m also amd Influencer and Makeup Artist. I get to work with amazing brands that I grew up using. Not only has this brought some income but I’ve met some amazing people through this. I’m truly grateful for all the blessings this has brought.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live in the beautiful city of San Diego, CA. I am very much in love with this city. My top 3 favorite places to visit are downtown San Diego of course, Old Town San Diego and Carlsbad, which is located near San Diego city. Here are some of my top places located in each city. I’m a big foodie and beach type of person. Tamarack Surf Beach in Carlsbad is by far one of my favorite beaches. The scenery, the people and the vibes are just everything. My top favorite restaurants in Carlsbad are Casa De Bandini, Campfire and Shorehouse Kitchen. Im all about good vibes and these places just give off those good vibes. Old Town San Diego is beautiful! It features Mexican heritage, historical sites, colorful shops, the yummiest restaurants, a theater and so much more to explore. I love taking my kids here and just exploring. One of my favorite restaurants here is Casa De Reyes. I can go on and on about how beautiful San Diego is and how much they have to offer. If you haven’t visited San Diego yet, definitely add it to your list.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a shoutout to my friend, mentor and leader Gabriela Guerrero. If she wouldn’t have presented me with an amazing opportunity, I don’t think I would be where I’m at. Say YES to her has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Thank you Gabby for saying yes first, so I can say yes. Thank you for pushing me and motivating me.
