JP had the opportunity to be interviewed by Boss Maker, a fresh media house supplying weekly news views and interviews to Small Businesses and Business Start-ups based out of London, England.
During her interview, JP had the wonderful opportunity to tell the story of her entrepreneurial journey and not just business tips and tricks (although it is littered with them throughout). The strong accents (his- British, hers- Tennessee) created an interesting and humorous interview, while the details created insightful and relevant content for every listener.

JP Jones will have the opportunity to lend her wisdom to the event by speaking at two of the sessions of the Killer Nashville Thriller, Mystery and Crime Literature Writers' Conference this year! Open to all attendees, the "Your Author Website on a Budget" will be headed up by panelists JP Jones and Karen McCullough and will be available to answer your questions and assist you in your new plunge into the world of websites.
In her second session, a ticketed event, Breakout Session 8 "Branding Yourself and Building Your Author Platform", JP will be joined by Laura Brennan, Maryglenn McCombs and Tom Robinson, to pour their knowledge on the subject into the attendees.
Since it was founded in 2006 by writer and filmmaker Clay Stafford, the Killer Nashville Thriller, Mystery and Crime Literature Writers' Conference has developed a reputation as a leading advocate for writers and readers of all genres and, in the fall of 2012, was the most written about conference on the web. It has also been the recipient of many awards such as the Claymore Award, Silver Falchion Award, SEMWA Magnolia Award and the Crime Scene Detective Award.
With an earnest desire to help develop a better understanding of the craft, accurately portray law enforcement and forensic science and assist authors of all writing genres and formats, the conference is an action-packed weekend of learning, networking and fun.
Although you don't have to be a writer (you can just be a fan), the agent and/editor round tables for aspiring authors, and sessions on marketing, promotion, career building and time management for already published authors, cultivates a atmosphere of growth and success for all the attendees. Those who attend even have the opportunity to meet and learn from well known author Anne Perry and forensic consultant D.P. Lyle.

Many hopeful entrepreneurs spend at least some time straddling the fence between the security of the corporate world and the dream of running their own shows. How do you know when it is time to turn your attention full time to your budding business?
"Our most difficult situation to overcome was the 'in-between' stage that many small businesses encounter — that period of time between working a full-time job and creating a start-up," said JP Jones, co-owner of Collipsis Web Solutions, a website developer and provider of email and marketing services. "The start-up required tons of time and attention, but wasn't providing enough income in the early years to be full-time employment for me and my co-founder."

Cleveland, OH, March 27, 2013 - 31 Days of Marketing has been named a Winner in the 2013 Small Business Book Awards in the category of Marketing.

JP was recently featured on Entrepreneur Wilderness, a radio show started by London native Oyenu Olugbala with the purpose of discovering what other people are going through in the pursuit of success.
In her interview, JP was asked to prescribe advice to someone looking to start their path to entrepreneurship. Her response was as follows:
"Just stick with it when it gets tough. In the beginning it's new and fresh...but as you get into it, it becomes more work. Ultimately, there's a lot of responsibility that's involved in it."
Although starting a small business from the ground up may be scary, JP assures listeners that although some days can be "nitty-gritty", other days make it all worth the endeavor.
Hearpreneur recently asked modern entrepreneurs to disclose their favorite business quotes--the mantras by which they live and work. Among them was JP Jones, who jumped in with her number one quote by Thomas Edison:
"We often miss opportunity because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work."
JP insists that she looks to this quote so often that she had it painted on her wall! Now all who enter her office are reminded of the timeless advice from one of America's greatest revolutionaries.

It's that time again--when everyone focuses on what they would do differently than last year. In honor of this new chapter, media personality Carol Roth asked her contributor network of business owners, advisors and entrepreneurs to share their own personal business-related New Year’s Resolutions for 2013. JP Jones reveals the following goal:
"In 2013, my business resolution is to allow myself more downtime. As a serial entrepreneur with 4 start-ups under my belt, my days fly by in a whirlwind of flurry and activity. For 2013, I will strive to take more breaks and attempt to work much fewer 18 hour days."
Will JP succeed in winding down? That remains to be seen. In the meantime, what about your New Year's Resolutions? Tell us how you plan on taking new business strides in the comments!
