We had the good fortune of connecting with Alicia Igess Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alicia, how does tech affect you and your business? How does it help? How can it hold you or others in your industry back?
Technology has played a role in how I schedule appointments. This system has automated this process for me allowing clients to book an appointment outside of business hours. Technology has also played a role in our products. The cosmetology industry has improved tremendously and continues to thrive as a result of science and technology.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am an award-winning hairstylist and phenomenal small business owner. My journey to this day has not been easy. I have been committed to education and that has allowed me to make sure my skill level stays current and high. It has also allowed me to embrace best business practices related to the cosmetology industry. The most important lessons I have learned along the way are to pray everyday, always have a budget and save for a rainy day! I want the world to to know that my faith in God has kept me grounded and He is my ultimate source for this journey as a small business owner.
