We had the good fortune of connecting with Jazzmin Hosea and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jazzmin, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I have always wanted to become an entrepreneur. The trick was finding something I loved without pay. If you can do something you love without monetary value, work is not work it’s a lifestyle you just add value. Interior decor is in my blood line, I have an eye for it with my eyes closed. Due to Covid I wanted to make sure I had income from a passion that can create revenue for years to come.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think what sets me apart from other designers is the simple fact I don’t have to go to high end stores to make your house a home. I believe you can have what you want at an affordable cost. The phrase “you get what you pay for” is not always true. I got to where I am professionally by stepping out on faith with the support of friends and family. I have only been in business for a few months at first business was booming, I feel like the challenge in this industry is not every store has what you need, you have to go to many stores or many different locations to get the job done. I’m learning as I go..one thing I want people to know about my business is I am mostly a one woman show, I love to decorate and will only put in your house what I’d see for myself.
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?
Visiting Houston I’d have to take my bestfriend to the galleria mall, it’s not one of my favorite malls but a big tourist spot in my opinion. We’d definitely eat at papapadeaux, Frenchys, First seafood, Franks and the breakfast club to name a few restaurants. A night scene would consist of Kirby and Chapman and the Address. Houston is a large city so it’s plenty of places to see.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My daughter and family! As I previously mentioned designing was in my blood line I wouldn’t have the eye or know how to put it together without learning from my grandmother and parents. As a mom, I have a mini me watching everything I do and I want her to see her mom work from the ground up and at the age of 5 she understands and motivates me like no other. Lastly without a handy man like my boyfriend my business would be just an idea or arts laying around….somebody has to hang them. He pushes me when nobody else will. Support goes along away and there is a shout-out of a businessman my brother Paije is my trainer but my number 1 cheerleader. He’s going to repost no matter what. And he would be great for an interview. And all of my friends!
