Wow! I can't believe that I am here sitting at my desk writing my first blog. I'm not going to lie but it feels a little weird. I always said to myself, "what do I have to say that someone else hasn't already?" But I guess this is the way of the world now and I needed to take the leap and get on board or jump ship.
Obviously, I chose the former and decided to follow the herd and attempt to change along with the rest of the world. I'm not going to promise life changing advice or anything of that nature so don't get too excited. I don't even really know where to start or what to blog about. I've always been a fairly private person and have kept myself lurking in the shadows so to speak. However, I recently was given some advice that in business, it may be a good idea to come out front and center. So here I am, trying to do just that.
When I first started J Paper (out of my house) back in 2007/2008 I thought it would be a good idea to use my legal name, Jessica rather than my nickname, Jessye. It just sounded more professional and sophisticated. It felt good for a minute or two but I realized that it just wasn't me. I've always been known as Jessye...that's me! Ever since I came to that realization, I have tried to stay true to myself and who I am no matter what the situation. Needless to say, J Paper is in fact a reflection of who I am.
So, this is my first blog. I know it's nothing to write home about and share with all of your friends but at least it's a start in the blogging world for J Paper and of course, myself.
If you've gotten this far, thanks for your time and support.
With Much Gratitude,
Jessye Cohen Light
