For a new'ish barb I always like to recommend them to Phat's female barb. His gear is a great template if you are just starting to fully regear. However, since you are a Skorn barb and I am not clear on how to gear for that.

We only have 2.8-3% lifesteal on gear because we use the Bloodthirst passive to maximize dps gained off gear.
First of all I suggest you start taking the echoing fury offhand route because it makes it so much easier to hit the 2.5 breakpoint. Look for an Echoing Fury with Str, .24+ attacks per second, Socket, Crit Damage or Lifesteal. From then on you will need 9/9/8/8 atk speed on your gear. From a quick glance I see that you will need to get either trifecta gloves or a new ring with 9% atk speed. I suggest you go with the ring and keep crafting gloves until you get a good one since it's hard to replace the eHP loss.
Your boots need some heavy upgrading. The ones I am wearing are not ideal, but can be used temporarily until you get the budget for ones with 300 combined stats.
Next I would like to talk to you about the SoJ. Yes, your SoJ has 30% bonus to elites, but its not cold damage! Try and aim for a new one with cold damage + 25%+ bonus damage to elites. You will find the slow effect very effective when you obtain your new echoing fury.
Your mainhand has all the required stats, but ultimately look for one with 600-1200 damage range.
More str and more vit for chest.
Belt with more str.
