We had the good fortune of connecting with Jazseny Ruff and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jazseny, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
When creating RICHES, my thought process was simple. I knew I was creative, and I knew long term I wanted to be my own boss. So when I put the two together, the outcome was, decorating.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am most proud of my brand. It’s still growing and I’m not internationally known yet, but RICHES speaks for itself. It has not been an easy road to get to where I am, but it has been so rewarding. I have to literally make myself take a break, because my calendar is always so full. In May of this year I left my 9-5, and pursued my business full time. I’ve learned so much in these past few months, and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Im big on faith, and any entrepreneur will tell you, you have to have faith in order to be successful. So, I’d like for the world to know from Jazseny & RICHES by Jazseny Ruff; as long as you have faith, whatever your heart desires, you can achieve!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
So I’m probably not the best person to host a “good time” lol I go with the flow, so I would probably phone another friend for some advice. I love a nice lounge, with a good vibe and good music. So I may suggest Midtown Atlanta, or one of my new favorite places, Social Club in Atlanta also.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This is the easiest question. My mom. Literally everything I do, I owe to her. I lost my mom 5 years ago. & my motto that I say ALL the time is, #JustTrynaMakeSabrenaProud. Every achievement, every goal, every step I take, I thank her. I know I would not be where I am today without the 24 years she poured into me.
