Who is PBS Market?
Hi my name is Shawn Jones and I am the founder of PBS Market. PBS stands for “Projects By Shawn” and PBS Market is my Internet Marketing sector which was founded in January 2016. We are located in Duluth,GA right out side of Atlanta.
I was born in Atlanta, GA and I have lived here all of my life. Very early in life I knew I had the heart of an entrepreneur. My mom loves to tell the story of how in my elementary school days I received an Easter Basket as a gift. Instead of eating the candy, I decided to take it to school to sell it. My mom nurtured my business mind and help me start my first business. I was officially and entrepreneur!
As I grew up I realized that I was also a techie! I was fascinated by all types of gadgets and how to make them work. I went to Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, GA and majored in Electrical Engineering. While attending college I also worked a co-op job as a technical writer where I realized that although I was technical I had a knack for writing (although I am a horrible speller. Spell check is a life saver). While studying Electrical Engineering I quickly learned that it is a very broad field of study and I would need to specialize. As I approached the end of my college career I decided to specialize in computer programming. I later obtained my MBA with a focus in Project Management to enhance both my business and technical skill set.
In my professional career I have worked in both corporate America as well as owned my own Web Site Design and Web Hosting business. I have worked extensively in website design, database administration, and all stages of the software development life cycle. To find out more, feel free to take a look at my Linked In Profile.
In my personal life I am the mother of a 24 year old son and a 9 year old daughter (… their ages as of August 2016). Yes, I know that is quite an age gap. In my free time I like to lean new technologies, travel and spend time with my blended family where I have an awesome fiance and 3 equally awesome teenagers.
