How Julia Jackson Assumed the Family Business of Wine

Julia Jackson was born in San Francisco, California, in 1988, and is now proprietor of the Jackson Family Wines company, a business that was owned by her family many days before she decided to be a part of it.

According to her, she has always been interested in the wine business since she was young and was constantly hearing about wines, as her family was deeply involved in it. While she was growing up, she realized that she liked it a lot, despite already being the business of the family; she wanted to be a part of it.

And she did.

During her youth, she was very close to the procedures of picking and sorting grapes, even under scalding sunny days. It was part of the process, and she is very grateful that she experienced the whole process of creating wine. “It’s not just waiting for the fermentation; there is a lot of hard work involved.”

She attended the Stanford Summer Institute of General Management and the Scripps College where she got a degree in Bachelor of Arts.

In 2014, Julia Jackson founded her startup called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment, where Julia and her team are consistently featuring women that have overcome challenges, preconceptions and are an inspiration to other women in the world. The group is always pulling cash that will be using as funding to non-profitable organizations that fight for equality, freedom of expression, cultural diversity, among other causes. They usually award $100,000 annually to these institutions.

Julia has a lot of knowledge about wines, something that she obtained by hearing the adults of her family talk about, as well as experience with her work in the business. When asked about the best wines in Sonoma, she said: “Sonoma has a reputation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but we believe it’s the best place for Cabernet.”

Whitney Wolfe Gains An Edge In Dating App Industry

There is a strong amount of interest that is surrounding a new dating app called Bumble. This is the brainchild of Whitney Wolfe.

She is a co-founder of another very successful app for singles called Tinder. For most people that know of Whitney Wolfe this is her early claim to fame. That is how she became confident about the app industry. She had the ability to go through the trial and error of starting an app that has the same basic elements that her new Bumble app has. She was already aware that this would work because she was already in place to start a dating app that is successful now.

The major difference is that she wanted to do something different and still keep the successful elements that were discovered with Tinder. It has become very obvious that this is the type of complicated process of moving on to a new company. Tinder is not something that she wanted to duplicate entirely, but she did know that there were successful elements to this dating app that she would preferred to implement with Bumble as well. What would take this after the top is her ability to give women the chance to stop sitting on their hands and waiting for some guy to come and text them.

In this day and age, millennials are taking over the industry and giving people the chance to do things differently than their mothers and fathers did things. This is something that Whitney Wolfe was passionate about Bumble. She didn’t want to be in a position where she had to wait for some guy to send a message to her. She wanted to be in power, and she wanted to also put women in a position where they felt empowered to make the first move.
