Josette gained notoriety on a global scale when her Zumba Fitness classes were averaging 150-200 students every single class.  The line to attend her classes went around the block in downtown Santa Barbara and her infectious smile and bright blue eyes captivated CEO’s and business leaders around the world.  Aside from turning her dance fitness business into an iconic Santa Barbara must do, she quickly gained attention for her strategies for making a business succeed and it all begins with listening to your heart.

“I really wanted embody the change I wished to see in our corporate and business world.”  I took inspiration from the TOMS model and put to good use strategies that included building community, supporting those in need and meeting people where they are to uplift and help them recognise their own power to trasform what they feel does not work.  I also have an active outreach with local nonprofits to build relationships and work on a community-scale to build the village that supports these ideas.  My business is without ego.  At the same token, I know that I have something that no one else has just as everyone else does too.
