Jamila is a wife and mom to two amazing young boys and the creator of the personal finance blog, JourneyToLaunch.com. Raised by a single mom, she learned the concept of hard work and the value of money at a very early age. While her friends were blowing their money on the latest fads, she was saving for her first real estate property, which she was able to buy right out of college, at the age of 22. As a result of the lessons she learnt growing up, her and her husband are debt free (besides the mortgage) and she is on her way to becoming financially independent by the age of 40.

I’m J Sonia Edwards, the Founder of the Human Resource Solution. I have a passion for helping small business owners with limited resources, discover strategies that help them reduce employee turnover, increase employee motivation, and create high levels of customer service that support business growth.
I have earned a reputation as an enthusiastic human resource management professional. Something that has concerned me during my career in HR is the disadvantaged position in which many small businesses find themselves in relation to the resources they are able to muster to effectively manage their people. Improving compliance is only one part of the support I provide. Since the workplace is a second home for many, I believe it is critical that the right atmosphere, level of motivation and HR management system are in place to support workforce productivity, business success and sustainability.
Prior to embarking on my career in human resource management, I enjoyed work as a high school teacher, and this gave me the opportunity to coach students and new teachers, helping them to achieve the success that they imagined for themselves. This was the soil that nurtured my love for people development, work satisfaction and coaching. Though my focus is helping small business owners to create a structured people management system, I also dedicate some of my time to helping individuals develop their potential in the workplace and in their personal lives. I have a special interest in the development of women and contribute some of my time to tutoring adult women who are aspiring to attain their GED (General Educational Development Tests) which can be equated to a high school diploma, through my local adult literacy agency. I have seen the attainment of a GED open more doors for adult women.
Through the Human Resource Solution, I provide people management coaching and support that is easy to implement.
