Throughout the years I have had the privilege and honor of working with the most fabulous women entrepreneurs. It didn’t make sense for me to keep them all to myself so I am excited to launch a new blog series called, “I’d like you to meet…”
Each week I will introduce you to an amazing female entrepreneur that is pursuing her passion as a FT, PT or side gig business owner. She may even be able to offer you a product or service you need or can offer up some sound advice to help you grow your business.
Without further ado, I would like you to meet Jina Ward. I met Jina earlier this year while we were both virtually attending the same Bootcamp for women in business. After finishing up Bootcamp we reconnected when she signed up to be one of my first Branding on a Budget clients! Jina came to me with with a logo already created and an idea of what she was looking for. We worked together to bring all of her visual branding elements together in one cohesive place for her new business, Jina’s Journeys.

Where can we find you online?
How long have you been doing your business?
Since January 2021
Tell us a little about you and your background?
I’m a wife to my wonderful husband of 24 years, together 29 and 22 of those years we were in an infertility battle that ended with us having a son. He’s currently 4. I worked in travel for 15 yrs, so we’ve traveled all over the world and have cruised on everything from large ocean liners to exclusive yachts. I’m foodie that cooks a lot, though I really don’t love cooking. Trying to keep my food budget down. I love people and I love helping women.
What prompted you to start your business?
When Covid started, I left my travel job and decided to pursue my purpose of using my journey to help women in their infertility journey.
Who is your target client?
Women going through infertility.
What does your typical morning look like?
I wish I had some grandiose plan. Typically I wake up and check social media. I say, “Hi” to my hubby that works in our dining room. My son wakes up and I fix breakfast. While he plays in his room, I get a little work done in my “clooffice” (closet+office).
What is one piece of advice you’d give to other small business owners/early entrepreneurs?
Have a schedule. You may be an early riser, a night owl or can only work when you kid rests. There is no right or wrong. You just need to do what’s best for you!
