Featured Jumper of the week: KLARA JAHRIG!
KLARA JAHRIG ... From: Edmonton, Alberta Lives: In Vancouver for one year. Work: Entrepreneur - founded my own company that will be launching it's flagship product: http://cahoots.com, this Spring/Summer.
Q: What inspires you to want to jump for joy?
A: I live beside Stanley Park and English Bay. There are many reasons I should jump for joy, but the natural beauty around me is enough.
Q.What was your experience like doing the jumping photos?
A: I've been modeling locally and internationally for a while, so I have jumped in front of a camera before- it's one of my favourite things to do. This is the first time I've done a shoot that embodied that feeling and I loved every minute of it.
Q: What inspires you in life?
A: People and Ideas. I am a creative person and love to try new things, travel, and meet new people.
Q: What is your driving force in life?
A: Other people. If the only beneficiary of my efforts is myself I will procrastinate, I need to be a part of something bigger to be productive.
Q: What is your philosophy in life?
A: Don't let your fear of failure prevent you from trying new things and stand in the way of your success. Relationships are your best copyright, someone can copy your idea but they can't copy your connections. Money is currency, wealth is about relationships.
Q: If you could do anything in the world, what would it be?
A: I want to change the way people do business. I would like to close the divide between some of the major companies out there whose dichotomies are inhibiting progress and do not have the best interests of the consumer at heart. I would like to see more collaboration between enterprises and less of a gap between businesses and local communities. I think the idea of shooting down your competition is very unsophisticated and outdated and believe that it is the big collaborators that present the most sustainable solutions for our global future. I am working towards these goals.
Q: What work/art/projects are you working on?
A: We will be launching http://Cahoots.com soon, a social business networking tool designed to make sharing and collaboration easier and enhance both B2B and B2C relationships. At present, our blog, http://cahootsblog.com , is the best place to find out more about us and read interesting articles about social media.
Q: Mini bio, interesting facts about you or something special you want to share.
A: Being random. I think the best thing I ever did is was start acting before reasoning. This sounds ridiculous, but what I mean is experimenting. I believe that our choices are limited by what we already know and have experienced. Sometimes the best thing to do is roll the dice and see what you get. Years and years of living my life this way have enabled me not only to think outside of the box, but to see it as a building block.
All photos of Klara were taken on English Bay Beach in Vancouver, BC Canada.
