Find your inspiration in three quotes:
- Looking back I knew that my passion was in creating things, because I can do it for hours, and time flies by. But it wasn't super clear to me when I was younger, that it could be more than a hobby. I remember leaving an interview for a banking firm and thinking "No, this isn't for me, but I wasn't sure what to do next".
- When I started the side hustle, it wasn't about money. It was more about creating something in parallel. The first year we didn't bring in much revenue. It took almost seven years to get it to six figures. And that happened when I started to develop different skills, like marketing and developing a framework. Automation has been key together with delegation.
- Often, we think that the goal is to quit your day job to work on your side hustle full time — and I used to think that, too. But now I see everything I do as an extension of myself and an opportunity, not a chore. I love my full-time job and I love my business, so I keep them both. They help me design my work life so that it fits me perfectly”.
Jasmine has previously worked on animated movies like the Ice Age films, Rio, and Spies in Disguise.
