Entrepreneur Profile

Jessica Machado

Jessica’s passion for her business is evident. Starting out on her own in the hair business happened suddenly. She came to ACE for assistance when the salon she worked for closed and she decided to rent her own booth and purchase her own supplies. Jessica had a vision of what she wanted her business to be like but needed help fine tuning her business plan. She worked closely with ACE Business Mentor, Bob Koohy.

She states, “I learned so much through the mentoring process. I learned to take ownership of my ideas and to think about many aspects of the business. Many of the promotions and marketing ideas that are successful for me were developed during the process with ACE.”
