Meet Jordan // SoulScripts

I'm so excited to introduce you to Jordan, the creator of SoulScripts! Have you heard of her little print business? If not, today is your lucky day ;) Her simple, classic, hand drawn prints serve as daily encouraging reminders. Most of her prints are inspired by verses in the bible, making them a great way to incorporate truth into our home! This is something that Jordan is passionate about and is using her gifts to find a way to uplift all of us in a subtle, simple, and beautiful way! Her hand drawn lettering is gorgeous and she has a variety of styles to choose from so there's something for everyone! I'm so glad that she reached out to me and even more happy that I get to introduce you to her! Make sure you're following her on instagram (@soulscripts) so you can be the first to know of new prints and any sales/discount codes! Check out her website as well! Here's an example of one of her framed prints that I put in my daughters room. I may eventually steal it, but for now I'm sharing :) I love the way it looks in her space and the gold lettering against the white background is just perfect!

Now that you've gotten a little preview of her prints and how you can easily add them to any space, let's meet Jordan!! I'm so glad she agreed to do a little Q&A with me so that you and I both could get to know her a little better! How nice is it to feel like you're purchasing from a friend? Jordan is hard working, talented, and uber sweet! So I'm privileged to have been able to feature someone so lovely and driven!

Where did the name, SoulScripts come from?

The name SoulScripts seemingly happened by accident. I have often been told that my greatest gift is the gift of encouragement - I absolutely thrive off of inspiring and encouraging others' hearts, minds, and souls. I wanted to center the majority of my work around encouraging words and food for the soul. Most of my work is for purposes of love, whether it is a warm message to touch a home or give as a gift, or a sweet piece for a wedding (an event centered on LOVE!), and even supporting other small businesses by creating some design they can use to market their name. So although I definitely have a lot of variety in my work, my mission is to bring glory to God by encouraging and sharing love with people through beautiful art and encouragement. 

What inspired you to start your own business?

I think the biggest thing that influenced my decision to finally open a business would be my girlfriends, mom, and significant other. They had all seen that I had the ability to be quite creative and knew that I had developed a passion for creating beautiful handmade pieces with unique calligraphy and script. I started making more pieces and began having requests from family friends, neighbors, etc. for customized signs (such as for an upcoming wedding). I am still relatively small, but decided to make it more of a business as well as open an Etsy shop very recently after being encouraged by those who had seen my work. I am quite new to the online world as of now, but this is just the beginning!

What would you say has been your biggest challenge so far?

The biggest challenge I've faced so far is getting my work in front of people - hence why I decided to get involved on Etsy/online! It's definitely a challenge to reach the right market effectively, but I'm determined :)

What is your biggest goal for this year?

My biggest goal for 2015 is to really get this up and running with unbelievable customer service . I hope to expand my market, develop new looks, explore new opportunities, collaborate with other small businesses, and make a difference to the clients I gain. I am dedicated to providing exceptional customer service above all, whether that client is a friend in my community or a stranger across the country that viewed my Etsy shop. Each client must be happy with their piece and have their wishes met for whatever purpose they need beautiful writing, whether it's for their wedding, small business logo, a gift for a friend, or personal home decor. This is where I want to exceed the expectation in 2015.

What does a typical day look like for you?

There is no typical work's different all the time. It really depends on what the day brings. I often make it a goal to take at least 4 days a week that I dedicate either a morning (with coffee of course) or afternoon to create some new pieces of my shop or finish an order for a wedding or special order. I'm actually finishing up college so I do have a few classes that I am enrolled when I'm not doodling in class or finishing up an assignment, you can usually find me with a pen in hand scribbling my newest creation (or at Hobby Lobby - my favorite place) and filling orders.

What's something quirky about you?

I think the quirkiest thing about me would probably be my love for rainbow sprinkles. People say they don't have flavor, but they totally do. Plus, they're just so colorful and fun that how can you not feel like you're sprinkling magic on your ice cream (or any other snack, really)? Also, when I'm in a chipper mood and/or excited about something, I often respond to questions with, "mhmm, nyup!" in a high pitched and goofy voice. It's almost contagious, as now many of my friends say it in conversation with me, too. :)

If you could have any super power what would you choose?

My super power of choice would be Healing. I think it'd be cool to fly and stuff, but that doesn't change lives. I'd love to be able to heal anyone of anything, both physical and mental/emotional. After seeing loved ones deal with harsh diseases and struggle through injuries and other problems, the ability to bring peace and healing to others would be so absolutely incredible!

OMG love your super power choice! Heart of gold I tell ya! But YES how amazing would that be? Thanks so much for sharing, Jordan! I cannot wait to see what else this year brings you! For all that are interested, Jordan is offering a 15% discount code for all of you to enjoy! Just go to her website, and use the code, SOUL15 at checkout!
