Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Shultz.
Jennifer, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Four years ago, I survived a heart attack. During this very rough time, it was my belief that God was directing me on a path that got me through those very scary times to a place where I am now able to use my talents and experience in a creative, positive way. I have always been in the fashion and beauty world, however, after my heart attack, I decided to take my skills and talents to a new level.
In a world where first impressions are formed within seconds, Jennifer Shultz Style helps CEO’s, industry leaders and influencers elevate their style, engage with the community, and create connections that build legacies and make dreams come true. I produce red-carpet events and fashion galas for companies wanting to leave a legacy and charity organizations ready to increase their impact, influence, and income.
I have worked with a variety of organizations throughout Southern California, including The Boys and Girls Club, the American Heart Association, Cancer Schmancer, Act Today for Autism and Amare Magazine. I make frequent guest appearances on TV talk shows as a fashion stylist, spokeswoman, and philanthropist. I am the founder and host of the Elevate Your Style online show and often takes I take my show live at star-studded galas and philanthropic red-carpet events.
I recently have added an online 90 day VIP Styling Experience so I can work with women all over the world to teach them about how to create the boutique closet they have always wanted and how to feel confident when they show up to their next meeting or event so they can truly stand out and make an impact.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Nothing about being an entrepreneur is ever going to be smooth. However, I have found when I face struggles like on the day of a fashion gala that is supposed to be outside in beautiful warm sunny California.
And suddenly it gets cold outside, that’s when I take a moment, take a breath and have to make a quick choose to decide what is in the best interest for this red carpet event and to move it all inside knowing we now only have two hours to be all set up and ready for our guests to arrive so that we can put on a great event.
Being calm in the midst of any storm is one of the best qualities I have learned about facing struggles in being in business and life.
We’d love to hear more about what you do.
Jennifer Shultz Style is a company that specializes in producing fashion galas for philanthropy, speaking on stages to women who want to leverage their gifts and talents to make a difference. We are proud of our online VIP Styling Experience we have created in 2018, and our Elevate Your Style online shows along with red carpet events to allow influencers who are making a difference in our world to get their message out to more people.
Being able to have an online business in this day and age is crucial. I want to make a worldwide impact, and being online has given me an opportunity to work with women across the globe.
I am most proud of my company that I take a stand on allowing companies and business leaders to leave a legacy through their charity that they are helping for a great cause such as heart disease, cancer, or mental illness.
My promise is that I lead with generosity when working with all of my clients. I will give the best of my service and expertise to help others feel confident in how they show up in business and life.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I would define my success by staying focused on the step I am in. I do not get distracted by emails and texts. I have learned that that is someone else’s agenda and it is not serving me to reach my goals of making a difference in a million lives.
Having a good business coach like mine has really helped me to be a part of a community of other successful friends and entrepreneurs has been a huge help, so I am not a lone wolf anymore.
I also believe that having God as my leader to direct my path is most important. I start each day with quiet time with God and asking for his guidance.
