    Choosing Boundaries Over Balance, New Motherhood, and Grace as a Business Foundation (feat. co-founders of J.Lowery)

    How to overcome the comparison trap and imposter syndrome when working in a new industry


    The unnecessary pressure of women feeling they need to choose between their career and being a mom


    The role grace and empathy plays in their small business

Seriously the best!

Jazmine always hosts the best conversations. I love that her episodes are wide-ranging enough to be interesting, but always centered on relatable themes like self-care, authenticity, and growth. A welcome alternative to the hustle/grind/girlboss cliches that have become so common in the entrepreneur/career/self space.

You’re fired!

The girl said she got fired 3 times and stated that she realized she must be doing something that’s not working. She never stated the reasons she got fired. She then indirectly leads you to believe that she lost her jobs with the race card. Just a word of an advice, if it was really racism, there should be given specific detailed explanations with experiences!

Such a fun listen about stressful topics

I’ve read Jazmine’s articles on TFD for years and loved her writing and perspective. Started listening to this podcast after she was featured on The Financial Confessions. This podcast is full of great interviews and equally great solo episodes full of down to earth actionable advice and great conversations. It’s like listening to your best friend telling you that you deserve better in podcast form.
