We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Waters and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jessica, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted to create a business where people didn’t feel overwhelmed when it came to interior design. I wanted a service where anyone could afford to make their home beautiful.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My biggest challenge starting my business was just not knowing how to grow my social media account and just where I should begin. It took a lot of research and staying up late to grow my business. Even though I didn’t know exactly how I was going to do it, I just went day by day and it got better and better.. There are several businesses like mine out there, but I try and set myself apart by being honest with my customers and super personable. I want my clients to feel like they get everything out of the money they spend with me, and never want anyone to be unhappy. I got to where I am today because of that, I get so many referrals and return clients. Lessons I have learned along the way, don’t doubt yourself. Know your worth, and don’t feel bad for charging someone for something you are the expert in.
I would love for the world to know that my brand is super important to me, and when you come to me for help with your home, know that I will do everything I can to make it perfect for you. I won’t stop till you are 100 percent satisfied.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
This is a tough one, I love so many restaurants in Atlanta! I feel like my favorite thing to do is go to Avalon and get a hotel room, do some shopping and have lunch or dinner at Rumi’s kitchen! It’s my favorite! The next day, go up to the north Georgia wineries, Montaluce is a favorite winery of mine, and end the night at Fairway social, a fun activity to do. Another favorite restaurant to take them would be Little Alley steakhouse in Roswell, and get an amazing steak. I also love hanging out in the new downtown Alpharetta area. Those would be a few of my favorite things to do.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Hi! I would have to say my husband and my parents. They both were so supportive when I decided to start my company. They saw how scared I was to take the leap, and I wasn’t 100 percent, but they told me to never look back and I could do anything I put my mind too.
