I was fortunate enough to have Jess McGuinty, founder and owner of Jessicurl as my first guest. Fortunate first because she is an experienced radio host/personality and I am new to radio (she was extremely patient when it took me ten times to record my own darn name, for example)
And fortunate because she is a fantastic, generous person committed to making a difference in our community and around the world.
Jess created her Women around the World Program, which she discusses on the show. I’ve “borrowed” the following info about the program from her website for those who can’t catch the interview on the air. She truly is amazing and we are fortunate she chose the North Coast as her home and the home for her great business.
I know this may seem unrelated to history but I truly believe Jess is making history now.
From Jess’s website
Jessicurl is dedicated to more than just good hair days; we are a business committed to making a positive contribution to the world around us. We feel very strongly that Jessicurl should benefit more than just its owners. We launched the Woman Around the World program in May 2004 to raise money and awareness for different charities and non-profits around the globe.
Once I realized that this business was going to work, I knew that I wanted it to be a socially responsible business that gives back to our local AND global communities. But I thought that had to wait until we were making a certain amount of profit before implementing such a program. Two things happened that made me change my mind about the timeline.
