Hi, I’m Jennifer Carino. I’m an acupuncturist and herbalist. I specialize in fertility acupuncture. I also specialize in cosmetic and weight loss.
It wasn’t just money, but I knew I needed to grow more.
I’ve been in business since 2001. I decided to go into acupuncture after being in the non-profit world for about five years. My boyfriend at the time was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I actually took what I learned in the non-profit organizing world and used that to help him get through that time period. So, organizing friends, organizing family around his health. In the meantime, my interests really just homed in on health. I just really felt like seeing him made me want to help others find that health as well.
Having a coach is terrific. It keeps me on track and moving forward and growing.
A lot of people come to see me because they find out I do Japanese acupuncture. I do very, very light needling so people feel it a lot less. I spend a lot of time really getting to know the person, what’s underlying. And what can we do to get completely well or more balanced?
It keeps me in the larger focus of what I’m doing and where I’m going and not just stuck in the day-to-day.
After 10 or so years of being in business, I realized things were going great. I had grown and I had grown significantly, but I was stuck and I knew I wanted to go somewhere. I didn’t know exactly where. It wasn’t just money, but I knew I needed to grow more. I just thought I needed a coach, I needed help. I need to get somewhere but I couldn’t do it on my own because obviously, nothing had happened in those three years that I looked at my business.
I’m always working on larger objectives and not just the small things.
He was able to get me to start with even just writing down and creating a vision board. I kind of give a little push back on things, not purposely. I said, “No, I’m doing great. I already do a lot of visioning.” I cut out pictures of all these places in the city thinking, “Oh, yeah, this is the style of what I want to live in.”
I actually cut out the picture of an interior of a place in the city. And by coincidence, I’m moving into that same exact building! Actually creating a vision board, and following up, and doing this manifesting work is really enhanced when being pushed actually to it. Yeah, I’m really grateful for that larger idea.
Where am I going in the end? And having a coach helps me keep track of that.
Having a coach is terrific. It keeps me on track and moving forward and growing. It keeps me from working not just in my business but on my business. It keeps me in the larger focus of what I’m doing and where I’m going and not just stuck in the day-to-day. That’s what I really like about working with a coach. I’m always working on larger objectives and not just the small things. Where am I going? Where am I going in the end? And having a coach helps me keep track of that.
If everyone has health, then everyone has the ability to fulfill their dreams, their life goals.
Health is basic, it’s elementary. If there’s health in an individual, there’s health in the family, if the family is healthy, the community, the neighborhood is healthy, if everyone has health, then everyone has the ability to fulfill their dreams, their life goals. My piece of that is just working with each individual who then is going to affect their larger communities, and hopefully create a balanced, happy, sustainable way of living for everyone.
What am I going to do to work towards [fulfillment] personally and at work?
I like checking in every day with myself: Am I happy, am I fulfilled? If I’m not, what am I going to do to work towards that personally and at work? All the decisions I like to make, I like to check in, is this really true, is this right, does this really fit my heart? Does this really fit my larger goals? That’s what I’d like to suggest to everyone kind of do when making big decisions, but even small. Does this really fit for me? Is this really going to bring me joy in my life? If so, then that is the positive direction.
