(mār-ă-kī):: doing things with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into your work, whatever it may be.
The philosophy behind this new platform is based on a modern Greek meaning to weave a piece of your soul into your work, which inspired the title :: the meraki method.
the meraki method truly embodies who Jess is :: a business consultant, instructor, and powerful, yet empathetic leader because she pours her creativity into brands that truly resonate with her true self. Her values shine through the skills, service and work ethic with amazing attention to detail and organization.
My path started with studying music business, with the intention of composing film scores. Music will always be an important passion of mine, but I wanted to work towards a career where I could provide service to others. So, I dove deeper into my yoga practice, becoming a certified yoga asana instructor & health coach. What a turn around right?
I then worked as a yoga studio manager for 2 years, which provided so much opportunity in web design, marketing & community management. I started to branch out my services to my community, providing assistance with web, social marketing & organizational development.
Because of the incredible growth, I was led to become an independent contractor, freelancing and being of service to even more people on my own time.
Now, I'm developing the meraki method, a platform created to provide everything I have to offer. All of my experience has helped me develop the skills I value most :: efficient work ethic, active listening, & organization.
I love what I do. I love being a support system & a helping hand to small businesses & entrepreneurs. & because I love what I do, I feel that the definition of "meraki" appropriately represents my method of providing service to others.
I'm very much looking forward to connecting with you.
With love & kindness,
Jess Marie Larrain, Creator/Owner/Founder
