Happy Friday All!

I hope that this post finds you well. Lately, I’ve been brainstorming different ways to show you all the art and the jewelry that I make. When you are a small fry  you find yourself being the photographer and sometimes the model. I think that I take pretty good selfies. By no means am I a model or anything near but I love the things that I make so why not. I jumped in front of the camera and became the muse.

Sometimes seeing a pair of earrings placed very carefully next to the biggest latte from Starbucks that you can find is great. However, when you see a person wearing the earrings  you get better visual . There are times when my lovely supporters of Gemini Flyii  bless me with a great pic showcasing the gems I make. In between , I have to do my best…

The Who’s Who of Social Media: ImJustJackie

¬†Hi Beautifuls, I’ve been featured on The Who’s Who Of Social Media!!!¬† If you would be so kind, take a moment to read my feature.¬† Thank you Beautifuls for supporting ImJustJackie !!!


Entrepreneur Jackie Warren aka ImJustJackie is working on the Woman she wants to be…But in my eyes, already there. Jackie is known for being a great supporting for many in all networks. Not only always supporting another business, but always keeping it authentic!¬†Check out my full interview below with Jackie and get to know her as I did!

Meet ImJustJackie

20160421_115132

Sabine: Where are you originally from Jackie and what is your ultimate goal?

Jackie: Hello my name is Jackie Warren, I was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia. My ultimate goal is to empower/embody the best of me, building with others and helping others see the best of self.

Sabine: What did you do differently aside from everyone else in your field to go that extra mile and become who you are today? What was one major obstacle?

Jackie: The way I support small businesses sets me apart from others. Even though I’m a small business owner myself, I go hard in the paint to support others. I will show your business love before mine. And the way I present their service or product is also something I do differently. So much so, my followers always compliment on my upbeat energy.

I also always have projects and goals I’m working on. So the one major obstacle I have is always time.

Sabine: Tell us about the turning point that took you from being Jackie to Jackie ‚ÄėThe Entrepreneur‚Äô?

Jackie: The turning point for me was being a single parent again and knowing employment is not a guarantee. I realized I needed more than one pot to piss in.  Besides being employed and having an established tax preparation business. I decided I wanted to start a business I have great passion for and can generate sales year round.

So in March 2016 I opened ShopIJJ:  The Accessory Boutique. Which is geared off my love for earrings.

Sabine: Are there any other ambitions or goals you’re working on that we should look out for?

Jackie: Currently I‚Äôm working on a new site for ShopIJJ and I recently started Jackie O’Management LLC. Which is a consulting firm that helps individuals form, set-up and manage their business.

Sabine: What is it that you want the world to know about Jackie?

Jackie: I want the world to know I wasn’t always this confident, self-sufficient Woman. Knowing my worth and Loving the skin I’m in has brought me where I am today. ¬†ImJustJackie is a vision, a statement, a movement!!! Join the movement as I present natural hair, beauty, fashion and more through my mind to your eyes.

 

Thank you so much Jackie and know I am forever your supporter!
