JessicaLynnOriginal Studios - Owner/Artist Biography
HOW I STARTED
When I was just four or five, I started my first business with help from my Dad - a Kool-Aid stand! We went to the grocery store, and he taught me the basics of what I needed to make it successful - sugar, cups, and Kool-Aid, to name a few. At first, I thought it would be a piece of cake, but after he explained all the different types of sugar and their prices, I realized there were a lot of factors to consider when it came to making my drinks affordable and making money. My Dad showed me how to calculate the cost of each item, so I could make a profit, and it was one of the most valuable lessons I ever learned from him.
I took one hundred dollars of my shared funds with my husband Aaron, and we did it. We started JessicaLynnOriginal.com Rubber Stamps. I started JLMould.etsy.com as a sister company for advertising and to get more practice with my custom stamp designing. All of that was back in 2005, so we fast-forward years later and have had some fantastic experiences.

I have always wanted to move my company to the "next level" and that next step. I have spent the past few years teaching and educating college-aged students (at a University) about being an Entrepreneur and how to run their own businesses. I am building my YouTube channel with Art, Adventures, and fun! I love to be creative and be able to just be me!
