We had the good fortune of connecting with P. Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi P., we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
Wow. I’ve learned so many lessons in my Entrepreneurial Journey. BUT, by far the most important lesson was: The day I stop expecting that People (Family/Friends) would automatically support my Business. Yes at first it’s very hurtful, especially when you are supportive. Support comes in so many ways: A shoutout, Post, Repost, Tag, Engagement. Once I stop having expectations of who I thought should support and actually focused on those who were actually supporting my business, Everything changed. So to that New business owner, it’s ok if your Friends or Family doesn’t support the way you expected.There are 1,000’s of strangers who will. Don’t give up.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My #WhitenYaTeeth campaign was a HUGE personal accomplishment. I had several celebrities and Professional athletes who I admired participate in my campaign.
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.
Breakfast: Atlanta Breakfast Club Brunch: 55th and Park ( closed during Pandemic)… Lunch: Real Milk and Honey Dinner: Hattie Maries BBQ Dinner/Drinks: Copper Cove 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?
Thank you Erica Dias for thinking enough of my business to recommend me.
