Hey y’all! I’m Indaria Jones, an entrepreneur who turned her side hustle into her daily bread while working full-time. I built my brand as a young professional and marketing strategist, best known for my ability to help millennials use their skills to launch a business and connect with organizations designed specifically for their needs. Building the courage to launch a business and collaborating with likeminded people along the way is a formula for success.
I was an intern at King Pin Entertainment in New York City, where I discovered my love for creating brand stories and talent management. Throughout the past 2 years of developing Thelikeminded, I have worked with clients in various industries including art, fashion, health and beauty, book publishing, non profits, and entertainment just to name a few.
When all is said and done, I want to be remembered as the young woman who shifted the culture of business for creatives and minority millennials.
