Blog Post #1

My name is Jasmine. I am a journalism major and a full-time personal trainer. My business is “JASFROMTHEGYM” where I specialize in transforming lives. My business started with me just wanting to become healthier and smaller and led to me being a coach of over 330 people all over the United States.

The topic that I’m the most interested in is the podcasting and communication of history. I know that how we explain something is just as important as what we say. There isn’t a topic that I came across that made me nervous.

The transition from in-person to remote learning has been extremely difficult for me. I often get major headaches due to the amount of time I spend looking at my screen. It’s extremely hard for me to keep up because it seems as though my days are running together. Although it is very convenient, it has been a huge struggle for me.

I think that this style of learning is very beneficial but it doesn’t cater to those, like myself, who need that in-person experience. As for me, I need hard copies of books. It’s very hard to absorb what it is I’m reading off of a screen. All the words start to look the same. It is something that I’m definitely going to have to adjust to because it seems that this is the new normal.

  1. Hi Jasmine! It was so nice to learn more about you– your business as a health coach sounds amazing and incredibly successful! I’m glad that you are particularly excited about the weeks we focus on communication– one is more centered on online communication and the other being podcasts or “directed” communication. These were such fun weeks and I hope you find them just as interesting. I’m sure you already know the importance of strong communication in building a business, so I can’t wait to hear your thoughts about communication in online settings.

    I can also relate to your preferred style of learning. I have always enjoyed attending lectures and being able to take notes in person (I have to write everything down to understand it). I feel like online learning has forced us from our comfort zones and we are all just trying to do the best we can. It is important to be kind to ourselves and create a workflow that is balanced.
