074 | Jasmine Star shares how to out write & out shine anyone!

Jasmine Star is a photographer and business strategist from Newport Beach, California. She dropped out of law school to pursue her dreams of being a photographer. In less than three years, she built an internationally recognized and award-winning business.  In addition to growing her business, Jasmine began consulting with business owners on how they could use social media to build a brand and grow their businesses.

What goals or dreams do you have brewing in your subconscious that you never allow to come to the surface because you’re terrified of failure?

I’m willing to go out on a limb, and guess that there are quite a few of you who have brilliant ideas that you’ve never spoken out loud because of this fear.

I get it! I’ve been there, and so has this week’s guest, Jasmine Star.

Jasmine dropped out of law school to pursue photography, and had absolutely NO experience. However, she knew she was miserable in law school, and knew that photography made her happy, so remaining in law school was not an option.

Later on in her business, after learning that half of her team was working for a competitor, that was creating an almost identical product to what Jasmin was working on, Jasmine thought she was done and ready to close up shop. This left her devastated, and she had NO idea how to keep going.

A pep talk from her husband and business partner, and a deep tissue massage in Koreatown in NYC, helped her see that everything was going to be okay. She stopped fearing failure and decided to tackle a new project, which has led to the success Jasmine has now experienced.

If you’ve ever put your dreams on hold because you’re afraid you might fail, this episode of Success Unfiltered is a MUST LISTEN!
