We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexandria Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexandria, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When I started my accessories business I needed an outlet to help me through an interesting time in my life. I was reaching new heights in my career and needed a new outlet to express myself. I needed a way to unwind at the end of the day. This is when Jans Girls was born.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’ve been in Customer Service, then hospitality, and now business for multiple years. All that I’ve learned from the many reputable companies that I’ve worked for have helped me continue to grow in my accessories business. My experiences with other companies have showed me that my people are who keep me going but my passion is what keeps me motivated. I’ve had some times where I am felt discouraged but one thing that kept me going was my faith in my self and my faith in God. I want the world to know that Jans Girls is for the woman who looking to make changes in the world. Let’s make those changes together, fashionably!
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.
Recently I’ve come to like Downtown Roswell. There are so many different times of restaurants to choose from that you can visit daily and never get bored. From Greek to Mexican from Dancing to Singing there is always a good time to be had each night. Also Places like Bar Taco in Off North Highland really will set that mood off right! For a mid day snack definitely gotta Visit lucky lotus in Ponce City Market for an Açaí bowl that is to die for! So many great places in and outside of the perimeter to enjoy!
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 girlfriends for being so supportive throughout me starting this process and celebrating every small victory a long the way. My friends were my first customers and continue to show me love throughout. Love my girls! I would also like to shout out my partner in life, my best friend, my love for encouraging me to know my worth and then add tax!!
