We had the good fortune of connecting with Jese /JaeUndreas Webb and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jese /JaeUndreas, what do you attribute your success to?
To stay focused on the need of the business and the people that we serve. So many time we get more focused on making money the we forget about people and service to them. I have always kept the thought that I don’t what i do for money, I do it because it makes me happy to see he lives changed from the work I do.Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a master loctician, I have been doing locs since 1991 and I love every day of it. What I’m most proud of if the fact that I can and do plant seeds in the foundation of those that with me and for me. I push everyone to become their own business owner and I help them in that journey. After moving to Austin Tx from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina I found myself in a city were the work that I specialize in was not as popular as the city I came from. This open a major door of opportunity and I took full advantage of that and hit the ground. Running. It wasn’t easy at first see that I was in a city I had never been in before and was very unfamiliar with people and customs, I was yet still sleeping on the floor of the Austin Convention Center where they set up a small salon area fro the evacuees to get their hair done, the rest was history from there I had only brought with me a comb, jar of twisting gel, my bible and note book, but when I found out they were doing hair I volunteered to help from whet I thought but everyone started watching and asking questions about my speed and ability to do the locs so well. I have learned that no matter what come God will make a way and my gift was my way. The world should know that me and my brand stand for the people that are down and needs that hand up we are here to uplift and encourage.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Austn Mary Robinson, she was my inspiration and drive, as child I spent a lots of days watching her doing hair and changing lives as she did, without even noticing that look on her clients face as they would leave her salon with confidence and pride. That is something I wanted to do and is doing to this day.
