Julia Sheffer - Optimist Extreme
Best advice you have ever received?
Do not stress over things you can not control.
What are some of your hobbies?
With my free time I love to be by the water. Whether it's surfing, free-diving, or tanning, you will find me there almost every day. I also have a deep love for soccer. I have played my entire life and although I don't play seriously anymore I still love to go to the fields and find pick up games.
What inspires you?
From people to simple foods like cookies, I would say happiness, honesty, and life's beauty have given me such a positive outlook on life and that allows me to find inspiration in every day things to stay happy and motivated! Just waking up early to go see the sunrise at my favorite local spot puts me in a good mood all day and gives me the drive to keep creating. However there is nothing better than the feeling of bringing joy to someone else. Getting positive vibes from all my ambassadors on the JayBay team and all my followers gives me the most inspiration to keep my company thriving.
Who is your biggest role model?
My role model is Blake Lively because she is hands down the sweetest most beautiful thing on this planet and who wouldn't want to be like Blake Lively?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I see my self running or managing a business, whether or not that business is my own will soon be determined :)
How has social media helped your career?
Social media is the source of my advertising. Since I do not have a store or official website and I sell through Etsy, I have to find my buyers on Instagram, where I provide my Etsy link in my bio. Social media has not just helped my career but through my jewelry and my business on Instagram, I have been able to connect with so many beautiful and talented people and make so many great new friends!
What is your dream job?
My ideal job would be to have my own little shop on a beach somewhere, preferably Hawaii!
What is your favorite color sand cloud?
My favorite color Sand Cloud towel is orange! Blue is my favorite color but when I'm on the beach, the ocean is already so blue and I like my Sand cloud to stand out!
