QUICK FIRE QUERIES: JENNY AMARANENI

Our series of random questions that dig a little deeper into the minds of the people holding the mic.

What is your favorite virtue?
Compassion

What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Listening to dirty south rap from the 90’s and 2000’s

What phrase do you find yourself repeating all too often?
When you act the worst, you need love the most. My mom always says this quote. I try to remember it and act accordingly. It’s a process!

Biggest pet peeve?
A big pet peeve of mine is when people say they will do something and they don’t.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
When you find yourself at a crossroads and uncertain about what to do next, be still and ask yourself what is the next best step.

Who or what inspires you?
The blessings in my life continuously inspire me. I am very aware of how blessed I am to live where I live, to have countless freedoms and opportunities as well as supportive friends and family by my side. I realize that billions of people do not have these blessings. If I can find ways to make life easier for them, I’ve successfully shown my gratitude.

How do you stay centered?
I always make time for my relationships with my husband (just got married last week) :), family and friends. Maintaining those relationships is so important to me.

What has been your biggest challenge building your business?
Trusting the process. In our business, we’ve fallen down 100 times and have gotten up 101. After the 50th time, you begin to question if you’re on the right path. In those moments, I get still and ask myself what to do. A small voice tells me to keep moving forward so I do.

How would you define Serendipity?
I came across the definition “pleasant surprise” and that really resonates with me. Beyond that, I like to think of Serendipity as a sign that you’re exactly where you should be.

Favorite place in San Diego?
The end of Law St. in Pacific Beach. It is magical at sunset.
