Recently, I was blessed to be interviewed by Shoutout Colorado. Here’s a excerpt with my favorites parts. Be sure to check out the full article: https://shoutoutcolorado.com/meet-jada-anastasia-founder-of-just-jada-skincare/
Hi Jada, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Anyone close to me would tell you I’m a natural rebel/certified risk taker. Taking risks has never seemed like a risk to me. In fact, not taking a chance usually seems like more of a risk. I’m a ‘go with your gut’ type of woman. I trust myself and my instincts and, usually, I’m content with the results. When I decided to launch Just Jada, I set the date for April 2020. The world was in chaos and we had just entered a major phase in the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses were closing, people were out of jobs and the economy was suffering. I had to weigh my options & & decide if I wanted to risk launching my company during a time when skincare was probably the last thing on anyone’s mind. True to form, I did it anyway. Thankfully, my business has not only survived, but it has thrived. I’m 38 years old and I have accomplished & experienced so much because I simply took a chance. Granted, I do think about the pros and cons of any situation, but sometimes I just go with my gut. It’s said often, but remains true; no risk, no reward.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The road to Just Jada was long, filled with bumps and challenges. Without God and the constant support from my loving family, my amazing team and my loyal Just Jada tribe, I wouldn’t be where I am today. A very special shoutout to my two wonderful, hilarious, kind and just phenomenal tiny humans Harper & Asher. My daughters are the reason behind much of what I do. They inspire me to be great. I want them to be proud of me and to look at me and know anything is possible if you put in the work and stick with it. Harper & Asher, mommy loves you so stinking much!
