Julia Jackson, proprietor at Jackson Family Wines, is one of the company’s most celebrated and talked about member. She is the youngest daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke. Julia was born in San Francisco, California, in 1988. She and her older siblings worked along side their father in the fields of the Pacific Northwest. Her mother was more so behind the books as she handled the company’s business affairs. Julia didn’t always have such a strong passion for winemaking even though she grew up around it. Her love for this industry came years later while she worked in the family’s wineries.While in France, she became very interested in vinification.
One of her closet of friends just so happen to be a French girl. Julia immersed herself into the culture by learning about French sales and distribution. Work days were sometimes 14 hours long, which incorporated pump-overs, picking grapes, sorting tables and yeast-adds. By the time she came back to America, she was fluently speaking French. Julia has a B.A. in Studio Art from Scripps College, and she received a certificate for completing one of the most grueling general management courses at Stanford University. Seeds of Empowerment, her very own nonprofit organization, is a success as well, and it epitomizes the term ” woman warrior.”
Jackson Family Wines have wineries all over the globe. This includes:
The family’s 583-acre site that’s located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley produces some of the best tasting Pinot Noir. The company also has a variety of Chardonnays to choose from, and all are sold at affordable prices. Jackson Family Wines is a machine in itself and Julia Jackson is the engine.
When most people think of Doe Deere, they think about her cosmetics company, Lime Crime. However, anyone that spends just a few moments listening to what she has to say about life in general will also gain a quick understanding that she is trying to get a message across to anyone who is willing to listen. She wants everyone to know who you they truly are, even at their deepest core. She is using her influence that she has gained through Lime Crime as an avenue to help people understand that by getting to know themselves, they can live much happier and more fulfilling lives than they ever thought possible
Deere was recently interviewed and throughout the course of that interview, she revealed that the only way she has managed to achieve so many goals was because she has always been true to herself. She also admits that there was a very brief time when she was growing up that she tried hard to keep her own thoughts and feelings a secret so she could conform to what was then considered normal by virtually everyone else. The point she is trying to get across is that while she was trying so hard to conform, she wasn’t as happy as she could have been. She didn’t enjoy a lot of things because she was hiding her true personality. She says that she has always been in touch with that personality, but for a short time she was somewhat afraid to express it because she knew that her personality was very different from the mainstream.
Thankfully, she eventually decided that she would rather be true to herself than live a lie in order to make other people happy. She says that she experienced the most amazing thing when she started being true to her own personality. People seemed to come from every direction in order to comment on how they too had been trying to hide who they really were so other people would be happy. For Deere, her personality is expressed through fashion and cosmetics in a way that makes her stand out from the crowd. She finally decided that she was never meant to conform and then instead, she should stand out boldly and make it a point to be noticed.
What can everyone else take away from this? Regardless of what you do or who you are, it is imperative that you remain true to yourself in everything. You might be just as interested in unique fashion as Deere herself, or your interests might lie somewhere else. Regardless of what makes you who you are, it is imperative that you remain true to that even when you think no one else will understand. That is essentially what she has based her entire company on and it is the message that she continues to put out there for everyone else to hear, if only they are willing to listen. This is something that almost every person could benefit from in one capacity or another.
