We had the good fortune of connecting with Jasmine Rice and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jasmine, how does your business help the community?
2020 was a year of the unexpected. I remember seeing social media posts in December of 2019 with people cursing the year, ready for a new beginning; then January 2020 was like a start to many other decades.
Many entered 2020 with a great sense of excitement, with more clarity and purpose than they had in a long time. People knew what they wanted out of the year, hit the ground running and were focused on goals and visions for the year.
Then, in March, COVID-19 rocked our world and plans quickly shifted. Everyone’s activities would be restricted. Kids would now be learning virtually, your favorite stores and restaurants closed. Stay-at-home orders and mask mandates were put into place. I think the biggest lesson for many in 2020, is that nothing is certain.
During unexpected challenges in life, whether it is a divorce, a loss or unexpected struggles due to a global pandemic, it can be comforting to know you are not alone and to have support. Transformation coaching is designed to help people transform themselves during and after challenging transitions, that is where I come in.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Good Things Are Gonna Come, LLC came to life in September 2019. Starting as a blog to encourage others struggling through challenging life transitions and evolved into a coaching business to let people know they aren’t alone in their struggles.
I’m proud that a blog to tell my story to help others has evolved into the coaching business it is today. Was it easy? Heck no! But most things in life that turn out amazing take a lot of hard work. I’ve overcome these challenges by reminding myself every day why I am doing what I’m doing…to help others. I’m a certified life coach and also an active participant wading through this thing called life in hopes that my experiences, soft suggestions and growth tips can help others create their own life recipe.
I have worked hard to help others create a life they don’t want to escape from, because no matter how far you run, you can’t actually run away from your problems. I have a degree in psychology but I am not a psychologist and I’m not here to counsel you. I am a coach to help guide you and give you a different perspective as you create your own life “recipe“, transform yourself, and love the life you are living. Learning to practice self-care, loving yourself and living a life you don’t feel the need to escape from can be a scary process. Sometimes it’s much easier to want to hit the fast-forward button and get to the “good parts of life”. But the truth is, even though life is difficult at times, it’s all “good parts” because we learn from mistakes and challenges and grow.
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 Colorado because I LOVE the outdoors! If my friend was visiting the area I would head up to the mountains for a hike! If it was August I would most likely take them to Maxwell Falls, it’s close to Denver, not too difficult and you get the benefit of an amazing waterfall at the top.
If it was winter I would say let’s hit the slopes! I love to ski and Breckenridge is my favorite mountain town that is just a short 1 1/2 hours from Denver. Now it’s time to hit some breweries! Golden is one of the cutest little suburbs outside of Denver and I love Mountain Toad Brewery. The staff is amazing and the beer is awesome! If we didn’t grab a bite at one of their featured food trucks I would make sure we grabbed sandwiches from D Deli on Washington street before we headed for a beer.
For dinner, we are headed to the Highlands to get a great view of the city at El Five, along with their amazing cocktails and tapas!
I would end their trip by taking them to Red Rocks to get a little exercise in buy running the stairs and taking in the amazing red rocks!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am where I am today because of every single person that has made an impact (positive and negative) in my life. We become who we are because of ALL of our experiences, all of our relationships and all of our interactions. There is one person in particular that I would like to thank for being my cheerleader during my journey. Someone who has been so supporting, encouraging and has challenged me (in a positive way). Ray, you have been a huge support in so many ways. Thank you so much for being you!
