“I put my foot down, I decided that I was worth more than doing things for free. That I’m gonna get paid for doing what I love.”
This conversation is extra special to me as I got to sit down with two brilliant young women I was fortunate enough to support early on in their startup journey, Jasmine Gabriella Yamini and Shakera Quince. I’m excited to share these two young women’s stories as they are role model’s of highest goal living. I love how clear they are about their identities as creators, and founders. And it inspires me to no end to see them powerfully comfortable in their skin and owning their awesomeness and their dreams.
We spiral into the topics of womanhood and the creative act of birthing a business and debunk the myth that “You need money to get started.” And we learn about their respective grandmothers and the formative role they each played in their granddaughters startup ventures.
These two are living testaments to the power of effective teamwork, imaginative reinvention and stone willed perseverance.
