Inspiring Conversations with Jennifer Barbosa of International Supply Partners
Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Barbosa.
Hi Jennifer, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I’ve always been an entrepreneur. I’ve had several businesses, including a fine jewelry store, mortgage and real estate office, to name a few and started ISP back in 2016 after moving to Atlanta from San Diego with my family. At the time, I was a stay-at-home mom with six kids and a military veteran-husband and has always been a busy body. I wanted something to do while the kids were in school. I needed a challenge and something to look forward to that was my own. Becoming a Government contractor seemed like a great idea at the time and I wanted to provide something that was simple and always in demand. At the time, I still ran my insurance agency, Barbosa Benefits & Financial Services of almost 10yrs but it was on auto-pilot, so I wanted to do something more. As I started to build my network in Atlanta, my insurance agency started to pick up and demand more of me. READ MORE…
Meet Jennifer Barbosa | Founder/CEO Queen Supplier
We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Barbosa and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jennifer, what inspires you?
I am inspired and motivated by my 3 children. They are the reasons behind everything I do with the business and in my personal life. I strive to support their personal dreams and give them a life I only imagined and more. I want to lead by example and show them that “you are your only competition and challenge” in anything you pursue in life. I am also inspired by my team of women who work hard and stay committed to the goals we have set together for the company. We are accomplishing so much for such a small team. Their dedication motivates me to continue to build the company so that I can play a small part in supporting their personal goals and dreams as well. READ MORE...

Q: What inspired you to start your own business?
I’ve always had a passion for business and an entrepreneurial spirit. ISP launched after my blended family and I left San Diego and the Navy and moved to Atlanta. I became a stay-at-home mom of 6 kids. Believe it or not, I found myself bored and yearning for a challenge while the kids were at school. I wanted to do something that gave me fulfillment. My small boutique insurance agency was on autopilot, and I wanted to do business with the government. But honestly, my children have always been my inspiration in everything I ever do. They are my WHY! During the pandemic, I was going through an excruciating divorce and besides my 3 biological kids, ISP was what kept me motivated and inspired…and incredibly busy! READ MORE...
