December Cover Feature: Janine Holman

Janine's quote:  "Everyone has a story. Before you judge, listen."

Janine is a copy editor of the magazine and is responsible for proofreading and editing articles submitted for publication. In addition to submitting her own articles, Janine also interviews people for articles and writes the cover, What's Going On San Diego, restaurant review, and entrepreneur spotlight articles.

Outside of the magazine, Janine helps people put their stories in a book, share those stories with the world, and then leverage them in their businesses. Janine is most passionate about connecting with people and listening to the life stories they have to tell. Whether it's a story of poverty, a story of traditions, or a story of overcoming and triumph . . . EVERYONE has a story. She tells these stories to preserve cultures, inspire current generations, and connect today's generations with future generations.

As creator and founder of two platforms, Janine encourages conversations around awakening your limitlessness and creating a life beyond awesome. Awaken Your Limitlessness is an inspirational and motivational lifestyle platform to help others own their limitlessness and design their own Life Beyond Awesome. On this platform, Janine shares her life experiences and encourages and inspires others to design and live a fulfilling, limitless, and abundant life.

Life Beyond Awesome is a blog of travel journeys for adventurers, foodies, and lovers of luxurious things. Here, as a freelance writer and photographer, Janine covers stories that are both local and international and focuses on diving into cultures and communities and the people who make them thrive.  She invests time in learning how to best travel on a dime – being money smart and maximizing travel dollars while still enjoying the luxurious side of life.

Janine also enjoys sharing these conversations through speaking engagements at schools, events, conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings and the like.

Life By Design magazine has given Janine the opportunity to truly grow as a writer. She received her first published byline in Life By Design and now has more than 30 published articles both online and in print.

Janine's advice to entrepreneurs is to develop a tribe that rallies behind you. Your tribe is your biggest supporter.  It's the "wind beneath your wings." By creating your tribe, you not only get a raving community of people rallying behind you, your life is tremendously enriched by building life-long relationships – relationships that carry you through the hardest and most difficult times you will ever crawl through; relationships that will cheer for you and celebrate the highest achievements you will ever obtain.  Most importantly, though, the greatest personal growth you receive is by leading and serving others.

Publishing her first book is the project that Janine is most excited about right now. She is authoring a book titled Awaken Your Limitlessness – A Transformational Guide For Those Who Dare To Live A Life Beyond Awesome. Her goal is to provide wisdom that encourages others to own their limitlessness and create their own Life Beyond Awesome.
