Burnout and Boundaries with Janet Jones

Better Etc. with Trista Sutter

Do you have trouble setting boundaries? Do you, like so many, feel like you’re experiencing burnout? If so, you’re not going to want to miss today’s powerful conversation. Trista is joined by an old friend from her days as a Miami Heat dancer, Janet Jones. The two discuss defining and addressing burnout, somatic experiencing, surge capacity, and setting and respecting boundaries. We learn that one of the best ways to avoid burnout is play; shutting out people’s access to you, being completely present, and playing, whether that’s getting outside or having a dance party in your room! And, speaking of dance, we learn how Janet balances her role as a mother and also as the founder of VXN, a dance fitness brand focused on improving the physical & mental wellness of women that now has 500 instructors in 8 countries. Janet opens up about her experience with burnout and ways in which we can work to prevent it or heal if it happens. Trista also shares her own scary experience with her body reaching its limits on a family trip. You never know what’s going on with people behind the scenes which is why it’s so, so important to always be kind and to strive to be better! You can connect with Janet on Instagram @janet_jones, and check out VXN at vxnworkout.com.  Janet’s book recommendations   “The Body Keeps The Score” by Bessel Van Der Kolk  “When The Body Says No” by Gabor Mate  “Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle” by Emily and Amelia Nagoski  “Margin” by Richard A Swenson  “In an Unspoken Voice” by Peter A Levine  “Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma” by Peter A.

Janet Jones Veloso: Founder of Vixen Workout

Girls Gone Boss

How would you like to turn your passion into a thriving career? Janet Jones Veloso is a Miami native who began dancing since the tender age of three and later attended Florida State University as a dance major. She has always felt music very deeply and choreography has come easy to her. Her dancing chops landed her a prominent spot as a Miami Heat dancer and garnered the attention of well-respected choreographers in the business who gave her invaluable hands on experience. This lead her to open her own talent agency where she represented dancers, choreographers, and creative directors and worked alongside music labels and artist managers in Miami. In 2008 as the dreaded recession hit and job security declined Janet found herself with pressure from family and friends to leave the entertainment business and resort to getting a corporate job as a finance coordinator. For the next 3 years Janet’s life changed completely as she conformed to a life that she thought would fulfill her. She left her dancing days behind and concentrated on starting a family and being a mom. As time went by she felt as though she had lost herself and fell into a deep depression hitting rock bottom. She built the courage to pick herself back up and start over by using what she knew and loved most, dance. At first she didn’t have a plan or an idea of what she would do next but she knew she had to leave this part of her life behind in order to save herself. This experience made her realize that there needed to be a space for women who are in need to disconnect mentally from their responsibilities, express their emotions in a healthy way, and have a sense of community while improving their self-image and bodies. The Vixen Workout was born from this premise and has taken the workout world by storm by providing a one-of-a-kind experience. The dance format uses commercial choreography; killer music remixes, and stage lighting so you can experience yourself as a performer. (Basically you get to pretend you're opening for the VMA’s). Since its inception, the Vixen Workout has had over 100,000 participants aka the Vixen Army, over 250 certified instructors in 7 countries, and has been featured in the New York Times, ABC’s Nightline, Cosmopolitan, Allure, Shape, Self, USA Today, People Style Watch, and Huffington Post to name a few. Through her workout Janet hopes to have women come alive by fueling their mind, body, and soul with confidence. Music is truly the best medicine! It’s amazing how what began with just two attendees in her very first class is now a full on successful Vixen Army of thousands globally! Her workouts aim to make everyone feel powerful, able, and most importantly seen. Catch up with Janet @janet_jones on Instagram and find out more about attending a class in your city @vixenworkout or at www.vixenworkout.com Also don’t forget to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts or DM us with a little note @girlsgoneboss. We always love to hear from all of you! We truly hope you enjoy, Xoxo Team GGB
