We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Nick and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jennifer, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My love for Yard Signs began approximately 8 years ago. I researched the product & did my homework but never pursued it.
Last year my daughter surprised me with a Birthday Sign for my Birthday and I fell in love all over again. She never knew my admiration for them. I knew almost immediately I would soon initiate a deep dive into a Yard-Sign busines journey.
2 months later Jazzy Yard Bling was born. I have always been told I was creative & this was an opportunity to let my creative light shine. Nothing brings me more joy than putting a smile on someone’s face with one of my eccentric Exciting Signs. Jazzy Yard Bling is a Premier yard sign company with over 60 themes and unlimited bold colorful letters & images.
Although it’s not as easy as it looks, it takes extreme physical as well as emotional endurance but I love every minute of it. The idea of spreading joy all over Houston is phenomenal.
I have now completed 1 successful year in business & 233 signs installed doing as many as 18 in one week of Birthdays compiled with Graduations and Anniversaries. We celebrate all occasions.
I am proud to say that I am independently owned & operated.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My Entrepreneurship actually began many years ago. I have allowed my creativeness to lead me on several successful independent businesses. I am so thankful to GOD I have always been able to explore my creative passions and eventually turned them into a profiting business.
I would tell anyone to follow their dreams. Even if you start out with $5 to invest in your business – Get it started and every week or payday invest in something for your business.
The next thing you know, you will be in business.
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.
My favorite quick vacation spot is a short 4 day cruise. I Loveeeeeeee Cruising. I could go on a cruise every week. Unlimited entertainment, Great food & cocktails along with rest and relaxation.
My favorite places to eat are Gringo’s, Pappadeaux, Olive Garden, Benihana’s and Steak 48.
I love comedy clubs, live entertainment & plays
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My daughter is my light and sunshine. She was my main supporter and encourager as I began my journey. Everything I have ever done in life has always been about her. I devoted my life to making sure she succeeded as being an intelligent educated young lady, so to have her now pushing and encouraging me was Special. I knew I had to make this business a success.
