Why did you become an Entrepreneur?
I started my business because I was one of those people that wanted all natural skin care and cosmetics due to my highly sensitive skin. I got tired of putting things on my face and body that I had no clue what was in them and having them break me out or cause irritation. I started making my own products last year. I've tried so many recipes that never worked until I started researching different single ingredients that would work for my skin care needs and combined them together to make my own recipes. I started to see a lot of improvements in my skin with my recipes and I didn't want to keep them to myself. I've had friends that struggled with bad skin and I know how many other people are insecure about their skin also. I know a lot of people that just wanted natural make up, with ingredients you could pronounce and actually know what they were. I was one of those people. So I decided I would help others out and put my skin care products and cosmetics out there. This is also another reason why my prices are so low. I didn't do this just to make money. I genuinely care about people having my products actually work for them. I started jKo on $150 check. And I've probably wasted about $1,000 on buying ingredients and trying to combine them into things that didn't necessarily work. But seeing how my products affect people today makes me see that all those nights staying up concocting recipes and having them go to bad was worth it. If I could, I would do it all over again. I'm planning to expand into soaps, body washes, lotions, lipsticks, highlighters, eyeshadow and so much more. The best of jKo is yet to come.
Why did you choose your business niche?
I chose my business niche because I have extremely sensitive skin and I wanted natural skin care and cosmetics that would work for myself and others.

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”
Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
