Joby, who is fondly called the Orange Lady, is a licensed medical technologist who established her Orange Blush Salon almost two decades ago when she was just 23 years old and was able to grow the venture into 20 branches today.

She dedicates the book to readers who are looking for motivation to jumpstart their own enterprise.

“This is for you, who, just like me, dreams BIG and starts small. Like me who believes that each one of us has a unique purpose in this life that comes with a personal God-given gift, meant to be shared with others. You are meant to shine,” she said.
