“Don’t skip something that you are meant to learn now, its preparing you for the future.” – Jes Perez
Welcome back Story Tellers! Today’s main character is Jes Perez, (@itsjesperez)
As a little girl growing up in the Dominica Republic, Jes always knew she wanted to pursue a career in entertainment. As founder and host of Industry High, Jes combines her passion for media and consumer culture to connect with children and millennials. She brings a fun and focused work ethic, creative energy and a love for social media and television production wherever she goes.
During this impactful and fun chat, Jes and I discuss:
- Not taking NO for an answer
- Creating the job you want
- Growing your business through collaboration
- Doing whatever it takes to make your dreams a reality
- Her definition of entrepreneurship
- and much more
THEY SAID IT BEST
“I don’t take no as an answer
“I create my very own opportunities
“The key is not to give up
“I like to set goals daily
“The dream and the vision is bigger than what you can possibly imagine
“Sometimes the job that you want, you have to create
