“Don’t be afraid to ask questions of others who are farther along than you are. People in general are surprisingly nice!” says Jessica Jones, when asked what advice she would give to others starting their own business. Jessica is a graphic designer and her fabrics and designs are hot items. She designs and lives in Evanston Ill., and loves it because there are lots of big trees and a really big lake nearby. She and her engineer husband don’t have pets, but she jokes, “[We] just have a bunch of dust bunnies that keep multiplying. They don’t have names.”
Jessica loves thunderstorms, coffee, mystery novels, Ikea, and peeling off sunburn. (Ed. She can’t be the only, right?) Her home is filled with lots of books, inspiring graphic design samples, simple furniture, green plants and because she hates being cold, a fuzzy blanket.
