Ms. Namita Nayyar: In 2007, you started a used car business called RJ Internet Showroom. You have now built it up to a high end company, RJ Prestige Cars, which includes Rolls Royce Jaguar and BMW in the stock list of cars for sale and also offers other services such as consultancy. Tell us about this professional accomplishment of yours?
Ms. Rebecca Jackson: Hard work, dedication, learning from every mistake is absolutely crucial to the success of any professional venture. I am offered investment all the time now, which mostly I have to turn down. I have gradually expanded the company year on year and more recently expanded up another bigger level. For me, business is exciting. The car business is in a rhythm now but that doesn’t mean I sit on my laurels. Far from it as we now have a modified range of Defenders called RJ Bespoke, each with a unique build number.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have selected a sport that requires a lot of cohesiveness and absolute understanding between your team of mechanics, your machine, and you the driver to finally succeed. How do you achieve that?
Ms. Rebecca Jackson: It is important to value every single person in the team, everybody is important. I always find this interesting to think about. Imagine, the mechanics sometimes work crazy hours at the race weekends, they will work all night if they need to and us drivers are sleeping. In turn though we could be running from sponsorship meeting to another, writing proposals late at night in the winter, in the off season and unless they are building the car, they might simply be enjoying some time off!
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine?
Ms. Rebecca Jackson: Cardio for general fitness, hot yoga for core strength and overall condition mind and body, shoulder and arm strength training specific for racing with Stew Wild, he looks after a lot of racing drivers. I train almost every day.
I do quite a lot of HIT and although I use machines at the gym, in the summer I use kettle bells and dumb bells at home in the garden because I love training outside in the summer. I combine this with an inflatable gym ball to work the core at the same time. If you can work another muscle simultaneously or go to another muscle and work it in a different way in the rest period, the training can be condensed down in time but be equally as effective. My trainer and I alternate push and pull with the arm, shoulder, pec and lat exercises.
