Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in fashion but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jada Lyshe, Founder of J.Lyshe, located in Cincinnati, OH, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business, J.Lyshe, is a Luxury Sunglass Line. I’ve started to build on my brand and began tapping into J.Lyshe Apparel for men and women. My customers range from young to old. I recently released my kid's luxury glasses collection as well.

Tell us about yourself

My goal when I first started was to bring nice quality luxury glasses to the city. I just want everyone to look and feel good in style. My customers definitely motivate me to keep going, they are so supportive, and I really appreciate that.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My business accomplishments have been the support and love I have received from the city. It really pushes me to want to go harder and not give up.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

One of the hardest things is being consistent; even if you feel no one is watching, they are! So continue to be consistent no matter what you go through or how tired you may be.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Keep a positive attitude, not everything is going to happen the way you visualize it, but it is important to stay positive and flexible in your business so you have the ability to adjust to changes that could be better for you and your business.
  2. Keep God first in all things.
  3. Write down your goals & constantly check your process of meeting those goals.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Being a business owner is not an easy road, and you will definitely come across obstacles, but never give up, and you'll be on the top before you know it.

Where can people find you and your business?
