Barbara Barach is a connector who has a passion for helping people. Her professional life 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 Curves franchise 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 educating people on how to have 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 healthy alternatives to their consumable products as well as natural solutions to today’s health concerns. She also trains on an entrepreneurial opportunity taking 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 has personally experienced amazing improvements in her quality of life and she enjoys “sharing the health” with others so they can experience similar benefits.
