Jordyn Woods Says If You Need Motivation To Be An Entrepreneur, Don't Become One

"You're only going to do it if you invest time and if you really want to do it."

Celebrity News

Jordyn Woods is one of my favorite younger starlets that is emerging as her own woman. And no, not because of who she was associated with, but mostly because she has built a life that many didn't expect. She minds her business, she's bringing healthy black love to the forefront, and she's normalizing women with (natural) curves in mainstream culture. Oh, and she has a mean 'Will Smith' card in her back pocket if tf she needs to play it.

Additionally, the queen of "I don't need your situation," is redirecting her journey from influencer, to entrepreneur, which she discussed with younger sister, Jodie, in a sit down Q&A on her YouTube channel for her fans. And listen, gems were droppeth while discussing what she has up her sleeve in 2021, as sis ultimately revealed that she is declaring the year her 'year of entrepreneurship.'

"I think that now, in a a lot of people's lives, and content creators and influencers, that COVID has put into perspective that it's so important to have your own company and your own business. I see the shift in a lot more influencers switching to entrepreneurship, as they should."

And her validity came in the form of a quote she came across when reading up on Elon Musk:

"[Someone asked him] do you have any motivation for someone trying to become an entrepreneur and he said, 'if you need motivation, don't become an entrepreneur.' Simple as that."

This attitude matches the work as prior to the conversation, the two shared new goals and plans, even speaking about the multiple companies she plans to launch throughout the year in addition to the central pillar and her biggest endeavor yet, FRSTPLACE, a fitness platform that guides users through 12-week at-home or in-gym workouts. The platform includes videos and recommended rep and set schemes for each exercise and a nutrition guide to help users reach their fitness goals.

But listen, make no mistake, Woods has been preaching the ownership gospel for some time, often expressing to her 11M+ Instagram followers that they can do it too...if they have it in them. She told Forbes:

"I see a lot of people say, 'What does she even do?' All she does is take pictures for Instagram.' But five days out of the week, I'm working. I don't post my work on social media. I don't have to."

And although she can't go into very much detail at the moment, she did reveal that she would be entering the tech space.

"I think the next step that influencers are realizing is that instead of making all of these brands money, why don't you create your own brand, have some Instagram growth and expand on it?"

It comes as no surprise that the cannabis industry and the legalization of marijuana are yet another barrier that Black business owners face. A new report released by Grand View Research, Inc stated that the global legal marijuana market size is expected to reach $73.6 billion by 2027. However, many states have very specific guidelines that stand as barriers for many people of color looking to get into the cannabis business, and Black and brown people are still serving harsher sentences for the possession and distribution of drugs than their white counterparts.

I think it's fair to say that most of us long to reach that place where the money resides, especially in the present times when life is so uncertain and people are likely to lose their jobs at any given moment. On the other hand, perhaps thanks to the plethora of entrepreneurs that document their journeys on social media, there's the sense that abundant financial wealth seems more accessible now than it ever has before. With that said, despite all the step-by-step guides to becoming rich available on the market, we can still hear the same question echoing in our heads: How do I get to the bag, though?
