Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie Rae Harrison.
Stephanie Rae, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
It all started way back in the first grade when my teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I have always been a RAE of sunshine and love being in front of the camera. At a young age, I knew I wanted to be in magazines, billboards, on TV, and in movies. I wanted to be a professional Model & Actress when I grew up. I imagined traveling the world, living a fulfilled life doing what I love so in middle school, I started pursuing my dreams. I signed with an agency at 16 and knew I would eventually end up living in Los Angeles. What I did not know is that I was going to be running an empire, building my vision from the ground up, helping others follow their dreams and discover their true gifts.
Three years ago, I launched my own company, Jetset Gems. To fully understand our story, it is important to note where our name comes from and what it means to be a Jetset Gem. Jetset refers to a social group of people who have the independent wealth and time to travel frequently and widely. This is our mission: to plan, organize and execute events across the world that truly help people understand, utilize and capitalize on their unique gifts. Gems are precious stones especially when cut and polished. In our case, Gems are highly valued individuals that dive deep into their truth and live authentically in this ever-changing world. This is our responsibility: to empower every being to see their light within.
Jetset Gems is a conscious event planning company that offers full-service retreat experiences in the most sought after destinations. At a Jetset Gems retreat, you will discover your authenticity, connect with like-minded individuals who are on a similar inward journey and leave renewed with fresh clarity and actionable tools to continue moving forward each and every day! WE WANT TO SEE YOU SPARKLE LIKE THE GEM THAT YOU ARE!
All of our Jetset Gems retreats will support our non-profit, Steph’Smile aka Steph’sMile. Here, we are creating sustainable systems to heal children from trauma through yoga, meditation, breathwork & ceremony, aiding in the elevation of children’s consciousness. To support & follow our journey stay tuned @stephsmile_ stephsmile.org .
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The road has definitely not been an easy one but as Roosevelt said, “Nothing worth doing comes easy.” However, it has been worth it one hundred percent. Some struggles included models not showing up on time, canceling last minute, clients not paying for work already completed, and of course COVID-19. Even with the struggles, I would do it over and over again. Nothing compares to the serendipitous moments and deep connections my Gems and I have made.
We’ve been impressed with Jetset Gems, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
In 2018, Jetset Gems started as a promotional modeling agency, booking brand ambassadors, models, and influencers for events, trade shows, conferences, and music festivals. THEN Covid-19 hit and ALL high-volume events were canceled. I didn’t know what I was going to do. In May 2020, when gatherings were limited, I decided to pivot my company. I had a vision to start hosting private COVID compliant content creation events. I began reaching out to my network and started gaining a lot of interest because most organizations and creatives were struggling to make money and didn’t have a way to grow their brand. Our events became a way for freelancers to create community, connection and content safely while providing brands with high-quality digital content so they could continue gaining exposure, making sales and stay afloat. Our events have changed people’s lives and inspired individuals to step into their power & start their own businesses, as well.
Each day my vision for Jetset Gems is becoming more clear. I am now incorporating my love for wellness and yoga into our events. Jetset Gems is not just a modeling agency, we are a full-service conscious event planning company that provides one-of-a-kind experiences for individuals, models, influencers, photographers and brands. We are changing the way content is created in the world today and are bringing together top-of-the-line talent in some of the most beautiful locations around the world! IF YOU ENVISION IT, WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!
How do you think about happiness?
People make me happy! We are all ONE! Everyone has a story, a struggle and a journey that we know nothing about. Let us be vulnerable, ask questions, breathe, smile, heal and lift each other up. The world needs more love. Magic happens when we discover our own truth and can authentically step into our power without fear! Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu – May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.
