We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Wright and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jessica, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my own business began with the question, “How is my future self going to be set up by the actions my current self is taking?” That right there was the million dollar question! I listen to a lot of podcasts and one in particular stood out to me. They were talking about how successful this man is and what he credited to his success and his response was, “I credit my 30 year old self for all of his hard work, because without his hard work and dedication my 40 year old self would not be where I am today.” That’s when I started thinking about what I was doing today for my future self. Besides knowing that eventually I would want to run my own business, I never even thought about that question. So realizing what kind of life I wanted to live in my 40s, I made the decision to take a leap of faith and risk it all for my future self and my descendants.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Majestic Therapy makes sure to create an experience that is customized to the client. I believe in removing obstacles as well as stress. My mobile service allows clients to enjoy a massage in the comfort of their own home. I personally believe that especially with everything going on with Covid19 this not only sets their minds at ease but give them the comfortably of having control of the sanitation standards in their own home. It’s been a long rode but with faith, hard work and determination I continue to educate myself in the new innovative ways of healing. I use different tools specific to the needs of my clients. I will never be finished learning, I refuse to stop. There is so much I’ve learned in the past 12 years of being a therapist, but even more in the past 2 years of opening my own business. I have to move with the times, however, I know that there is no two clients that are the same, even if their injuries or requests are. This definitely has not been easy. But nothing worth having truly is. 2020 has brought me so much growth as well as halted me due to Covid. I was on a roll in January. Contracts being signed, clientele building up, events being scheduled, etc. but in March everything came to a complete stop, rightfully so. But it did give me the time to put a lot of things into perspective. I’ve always been a fighter, someone to not be held down for to long, so when things happened that were out of my control I had to really step back and see what I could have done differently to sustain me in the mists of a crisis. I’ve learned that nothing is personal and everything really is just business. Its ok to take a break or a day off an do NOTHING!!! Seems so easy but it’s a lot harder than you think. Majestic Therapy is not your average massage company. I am dedicating my time to healing. I believe that my clients are more than just clients, they are like family. My client’s well-being matters to me not only for the 60-120 mins I see them, but past that, I personally reach out to my clients to check on them regularly. Not just to get them back in, but to really check in on them and make sure they are doing ok. If I could be remembered for anything I would want to to remembered for the humane way I treat people. My brand is a reflection of who I am as a person and I work hard to make sure to be represented as a kind, caring company and individual.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Houston has so much to offer. It definitely can not be seen in a week, However, there are some places that I would have to share. I love nature so the Houston arboretum, discovery green, Memorial Park, and Herman Memorial Park are some of my favorite places to visit. Whether its going for a nice run/walk, or just sitting by the trees to reflect on life. Some of my favorite restaurants would be true food kitchen on Post Oak, Papadeaux for sure, Cafe Express, hop doddys in River Oaks District and Seasons 52. There is this hidden gem of a wine bar in rice village called Bacco. Such a cute intimate spot, O’Neals Sports Bar and Grill in Baytown is right off the river, so its nice to go and enjoy some pool and sit outside on their patio and enjoy the water with a view of the Fred Hartman Bridge. And of course going to Kemah and Galveston would be a must.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There are so many things that have helped me get to where I am today. But without God and the support of my husband and son I could not be where I am today. God has always been my shepherd in decisions I make in my life. Prayer and asking for guidance is the the first thing I would accredit to my success. Then there is my husband, who has made so many sacrifices for me to live my dream. It was tough in the beginning but he always made a way to give me a sense of ease, so I didn’t have to worry about our household income. He has been such a great supporter and has never really told me no. He believes in me and that gave me the drive to make my dream a reality. Last, but certainly not least, is my son Devaun. He has ALWAYS been my ride or die! He has helped me with events, reminded me that I am capable of doing anything because he believes in me, He has woken up early with me to set up for days that didn’t bring much profit, and managed days where I couldn’t even take a break. My son is a great human being and without him I don’t believe it could have been possible.
