We had the good fortune of connecting with Jerika Jordan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jerika, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
“Happy Stacking!” Happy stacking means, although the work behind making a profit may be difficult, you should make the best of it. A job should be enjoyable, and we should always do what makes us happy in life. I love this quote because it reminds me to do what you love, love what you do, and stack that money of course!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I went into business for myself to encourage others to follow their dreams and make a difference in their community. I believe my integrity and willingness to go above and beyond for my community sets me apart from others. I truly take pride in what I do and encouraging people to believe in themselves. I am most proud of the woman I’ve become because of the responsibilities of being a role model and business owner. Although it wasn’t easy, I am blessed to be where I am today and to be given the opportunity to share my testimony. I’ve overcome life’s challenges by never giving up, and would like to encourage others to do the same. I’ve learned many lessons along the way, but most importantly I learned to be true to myself and be humble, because my brand is a reflection of me.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would first take them to the statler rooftop pool and bar to show them the amazing view of downtown dallas. Followed by a date to kitchen and cocktails. We would visit deep ellum and have a few drinks at stirr. I enjoy breakfast/brunch at coffee house cafe or yolk. Whistle britches is one of my favs as well. Maybe visit the dallas aquarium for some down time. If they’re into music maybe even visit speakeasy for live music and poetry.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to recognize my students for encouraging me to be the best me I can be. You all have pushed me to limits I didn’t know I was capable of. Being a mentor has been a true honor. This has impacted not only the success of my brand and life, but the overall success of the lash and beauty industry.
