Charis Jones is a successful entrepreneur who knows what it’s like to risk it all to make a dream come true.
The Richmond, Virginia-based mother of twins once worked in sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies but felt joyless and dissatisfied working in her corporate career. Just making a living wasn’t making her happy so Jones took a leap of faith and launched a now flourishing fashion and beauty brand called Sassy Jones.
Her newest venture is a ready-to-wear collection which will launch July 22 under Sassy Jones. In an exclusive interview, Jones told BLACK ENTERPRISE how she began selling accessories in 2016 and ultimately landed a show on the retail company, HSN.
