Serial entrepreneur and lifestyle architect Jaunique Sealey gives the tools required to move past the pain, despair and confidence-attacking side-effects of setbacks and obstacles with the intention to motivate and inspire.

Taking other examples from cultural icons such as Prince, Beyoncé, and billionaires Sara Blakely and Nick Woodman, the author seamlessly sews together a rich tapestry of scientific proof and no-holds-barred real life experiences to generate a beautiful accessible life lesson that you’ll want to immediately put to use. Whether you are looking for advice on a jumpstart or a restart, Regroup: the How-To of Never Giving Up brings a practical and story-centered treatment to the motivational advice that we hear so commonly. If you want to learn how not to give up, how to create and keep your motivation, and how to make it through uncertain times through the honest, candid and emotionally open experiences of others, this is the book for you.
Become really good at what you do. If you’re an expert in digital media and marketing, become the best at that. Business is business. No matter the industry, many of the roles are transferrable and we all want to make competitive hires - we want those who are the best at what they do. The specifics of an industry can be learned.
The most important lesson I’ve learned is how to fail. Most people stay so singularly focused on success, but the reality is that in a daring and challenging career, things often don’t go the way that you expected or intended. What you do at that point is so very important - not just what you do, but your mindset about it.
Every significant opportunity that I have been offered has come through some form of networking and active management of my professional relationships. There is no substitute for good old fashioned networking.
I strive for excellence, but not for perfection. At some point I had to let perfectionism go - it takes up energy, I need to get actual work done.
