I love my #girlboss segment as it allows me to showcase awesome ladies and brands that you may not have known about, but that you can’t actually live with out!

Jessica Anne was created by an incredible woman, and #girlboss and I am so chuffed to be able to chat about her here and share her little interview with you all. I have followed Jessica on her Instagram account for what feels like forever and she is one special girl. Her posts are not only beautiful, but allow you into her life by sharing and always being real with her followers.

She really is such an inspiration! She believes in empowering women, and has a heart of gold.  Jessica Anne is a gorgeous South African brand that is all about quality and making you feel comfortable in your own skin.  Their aim? To make you feel beautiful.

Are these pieces divine or what? And being modeled by the lovely Jessica too.

Jessica also runs workshops and offers one-on-one consults with women to teach them about styling and clothing – what suits you, what doesn’t, because she wants every woman to feel comfortable in their own skin. Amen to that.

Isn’t that what we all want?

Gosh, this BE KIND t-shirt below is my best! And its an important reminder to us all. Be Kind to others and most importantly, Be Kind to yourself. Think that is something we so often forget.

So I asked Jessica to impart wisdom and let us know more about her and her business.. here we go!

You started your own business –  How does it feel to be a successful #girlboss that inspires others and loves what she does?

I wouldn’t say that I have made it or that I know it all, because I most definitely do not! I’m constantly learning and it’s a HUGE honour to be on this journey with the amazing women who are a part of it! I see the value in positively influencing others through my work and personal experiences. For me, this isn’t ‘my job’ it’s a way of living… Learning from mistakes, getting up after failing, keeping motivated towards the next goal and treating people with respect and love.

What are the top 3 learnings you have had to find out the hard way since starting your own business?

Change doesn’t happen over night, you have to work at it and be diligent towards what you to achieve. Don’t compare yourself but rather surround yourself with inspiring beings that help you stay motivated and stir you to keep high standards of yourself. Reminding myself that tomorrow is another day, joy will come in the morning.

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

I hope to grow my business into a platform for women, a space where we can get together and spur one another on… A network of women encouraging each other and teaching on their own stories.

What is your advice to women out there wanting to start their own businesses but are too scared?

Don’t be! Nothing great was ever achieved by someone too scared to step out. Fear of failure is only as great as your fear, kill it because failing is inevitable and it’s only what you do once you fail that counts. Get back up and try again! Every successful business women failed a few times, google it!
