We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jessica, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
Consistency, most definitely! & Always making sure that every client to touch my chair had a great experience so they would return.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Owner of TouchedbyJesz I have been a braider since the age of 13 decided 3 years ago I wanted to work for my self so I jumped out on faith and have been working for my self every since & that’s how I created TouchedbyJesz! The jump was the best jump I could have ever made! Let me tell you though it was NOT easy but where I am today let’s just say it was worth it! What’s the saying “nothing in life comes easy you have to work for it” & I did just that! I fought through the tears, struggles & sleepless nights because I reminded myself why I started! Giving up was not an option! Now Im very successful & able to create my own schedule & now able to spend more quality time with my kids!
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’m really not sure! I’m a true workaholic so going out and hanging isn’t something I do much. I would definitely have to make some calls to see where we could go for the times I do step out.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I definitely would have not made it this far without all the support I’ve gotten from my clients! The referrals, the shares, likes etc! Im blessed to be able To work side by side some amazing women in the industry! My sister/partner “Hairbyazuree” that I met in hair school that’s so talented & an amazing mentor that has been In The hair game for 23 years Kheli weave bar & im blessed to have her to look up to!
