As many of you know, I started The East Coast Home (formerly Jessica McDevitt Interiors) about seven years ago after leaving my job as a Design Specialist for a large retailer. During that time, I’ve had the perfect mix of getting to do what I love while also being there for my family. Recently, my son started high school and my daughter 7th grade. They’re getting more and more independent and I’ve started to realize that I have more time on my hands to focus on growing my business and investing in myself on a professional level. I’ve really been “on a mission” since then – diving in to blogging, social media, and taking on more clients than ever!
But, I also want to be sure that I’m doing everything with intention and that’s why I’ve recently spent some time really thinking about my vision for both my personal life and business. In essence, what IS my mission? Well, my personal mission has always been the same – to have the freedom to spend the most time being a mom to my kids. I left my corporate job about 17 years ago and have never looked back – instead wanting to focus on my experience with my kids while they were young. During that time, I took several part-time jobs and also had a few small business ideas to make some extra money (and also to just have something of my own to keep my non-mom brain working). I worked in retail, I had a couple of MLM businesses, I was a sales rep for a gift company, I made lotions, and I even did advertising sales. At the time, I felt like I was just trying to make some extra money. But, looking back on all of it now, it’s so obvious that there have always been two themes going on; wanting to create and be around beautiful things and an affinity for sales/marketing.
So, that brings me to my business mission for The East Coast Home. When I started this business I knew that I had finally found my sweet spot of creating beautiful things and satisfying my entrepreneurial side. Over the years, I’ve come to define my business mission as being “To help my clients create a space that they love to come home to“. As I’m growing my business it’s become so important to me to be able to help as many people as possible to achieve this; any budget, any location, any home. So, I’m really excited that I now have three ways that I can help you to achieve that beautiful home that you’ve been striving for:
I’m really excited about the future of The East Coast Home. I’m working every day to help you love the place that you come home to!
