Barbara Barach educates people on a balanced lifestyle using the Total Wellness Approach. Her diverse entrepreneurial and educational background gives her a well-rounded perspective. She works with consumers offering them healthy alternatives to their consumable products as well as natural solutions to today’s health concerns. She also trains on an entrepreneurial option to take advantage of the growing trend towards online shopping with a business model that does not have the expense or risk of a traditional business.
Barbara’s profession began as a career student getting a BA in Sociology (UNO), a MA in Forestry (LSU) and a MBA (Tulane). She became an entrepreneur to make a living while pursuing her quest for knowledge. Her first venture was a wholesale jewelry business starting in the flea market and growing to a nationwide fine jewelry business. With her 2nd venture as co-owner of Curves of Elmwood, Barbara discovered her greatest passion was helping others have a better quality of life. In 2008, her club was awarded Franchisee of the Year and her coop of Curves owners was awarded Coop of the Year. With her current business venture, JBS Green Enterprises, she continues her passion for helping others lead healthier lives by marketing for the largest online wellness shopping club in North America. Through their products, Barbara and her husband (ages 64 and 83, respectively) are experiencing amazing improvements in their quality of life and she enjoys sharing the health with others so they can experience similar benefits.
Barbara has served on the Board and as Executive Director of the Elmwood Business Association and has served on the Board and as Treasurer for Women of Infinite Possibilities. She is currently a Membership Ambassador with ABWA. She loves networking to develop relationships and connect people for the success of others.
Barbara married her MBA professor, Jeffrey Barach, who is now retired and Emeritus Professor of the Freeman School of Business at Tulane, so she got a great return on that educational investment. Together they have 3 kids and 7 grandkids. Their home is at Nine Mile Point overlooking the Mississippi River and they enjoy traveling, sailing and being grandparents. Barbara is currently working on a book about the reunion with her son whom she had given up for adoption and is active with Adoptees Birthrights Committee, a voluntary search and support group dealing with adoption related issues.
