Episode 96: No Limits – How To Dominate Two Careers & Passions At The Same Time w/ Jasmine Lawrence of EDEN Bodyworks

Are you multi-passionate? Sometimes you don’t have to choose. Sometimes it’s not an “either/or.” In this episode, Jasmine Lawrence hones in on the power of not limiting yourself when it comes to your passion & potential.

At the age of 13, after attending a Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship BizCamp, Jasmine Lawrence founded EDEN BodyWorks to meet her own need for affordable natural hair and body care products. After 12 years in business, her products are available at Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, Amazon, Kroger, HEB, and Sally Beauty Supply stores just to name a few.

But, beauty isn’t Jasmine’s only passion. As a kid, she also had a huge love for science and technology. She graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science (with concentrations in devices and artificial intelligence) and now serves as a Program Manager on the HoloLens Experience team at Microsoft.

So, it is really possible to run a thriving beauty empire AND manage a full-time tech career? Yes.

How? You’ll have to listen to find out.
