Jennifer Roberson, Lead Editor & Virtual Interviewer
Jennifer Roberson is the CEO/Founder of “Let’s Talk About It, Jen!” online talk show/podcast and The Issa Vibe Network; the Lead Editor/Interviewer for BAM Woman Magazine; and the Ministry Leader of the God’s Nation CDT E-Members E-Campus. She is also part of the Black CEO Iconic organization. She has two Associate Degrees in general studies and applied science. She worked in the medical field for 15+ years, and customer service/management for 5 years before finding her spark in media.
Jennifer came up with the idea in August 2019 to spotlight business owners after an interview with a local leader having an event for school-aged girls. The spark grew with prayer confirmation, and the hunger to help the very people that supported her. Local interviews turned in to nationwide interviews within just a few months time. Now, she’s had the opportunity to connect with some amazing business owners around the world, and the list will continue to grow!
LTAIJ The Podcast is a little different from the talk show, and it is geared towards reaching the younger generation who struggle with finding their identity in Christ. However, anyone is welcome to listen and share! The Podcast has a spiritual connotation, but it is far from religious. It is designed to relate to the issues that most young people (and people in general) face on a daily basis. It is a non-judgement zone for listeners to be themselves, and get encouragement while living the life they were given. Jennifer has always had a passion for encouraging and motivating people. She is very thankful for the gifts that God gave her, and she prays that He continues to use her in business and in her everyday life.

John Preston is the owner and operator of Spot On Event & Photography based in Dallas, Texas. John specializes in portrait, event photography and event coordination. He has been in photography for a year and has over 4 years of event coordinating experience. John has worked with the Dallas Zoo as a Catering Captain where he would oversee corporate events and birthday parties. He is currently working with BAM Woman Magazine as a photographer. John decided to take the knowledge he has from working corporate events, the love of capturing memories, and make a small business from it. He came up with his business name while sitting in the living room trying to think of words/phrases that he would like to hear people say after a photoshoot or event. John thought of Epic Photography, but it was already taken. So, he came up with the name Spot On Event & Photography. John has been in business for himself for just over a year and it’s been one crazy ride, but by the grace of God. The hunger and determination he has to be great, fuels him each day to keep going, and to not give up. Also, knowing that with each day, each event, each photo things will get better and better. John’s goal with his business is to provide a personal feel, the best customer service, and experience that he can with each client. He wants each client to walk away feeling important, understood and not just a dollar sign.
