We had the good fortune of connecting with Jasmine Coer and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jasmine, can you tell us about a book that has had a meaningful impact on you?
The book that has had the most meaning in my life is The Go-Giver. I highly encourage everyone to read this book. It helped me a lot with my business model but most importantly it encouraged me to live a life of purpose.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shoutout my friends and family. They are all ambitious and starting new businesses across the board. To my family, I see y’all grinding and I’m so proud of the ripples y’all are creating in the world! I have such a talented family. To my tribe of girlfriends, I am always one call away if you need me and know I’m very proud of every single one of you. You all inspire me to reach for the stars! Keep shining, Queens!
