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

Hi Jasmine, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I decided to pursue a creative career because I was looking for an outlet in which I could express my creativity and help people at the same time. I am a firm believer in people taking their creative abilities and developing them in order to reach their fullest potential. It is important to hone in on that creative side of yourself and express that in whatever way you feel would be beneficial to you.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am the founder and owner of Smoove Sailing Services, LLC. My business caters to a variety of different writing needs including resume updates, ghostwriting (books, scripts, etc.). editing services, and more. What sets Smoove Sailing Services apart from other writing businesses is our personalization of services, attention to detail, and excellent customer service. We create projects that are tailored to fit your needs and desires, and we do so within a timely manner, all with great communication along the way. We strive for greatness and we want to help our clients succeed in any way that we can. Creating and building Smoove Sailing Services has not been an easy road, but we managed to push through and keep sailing toward success. We overcame a great deal of challenges by remaining patient, persistent, and diligent throughout this process, and leaning heavily on our supporters to help keep us afloat. The one lesson that I learned throughout this process is to keep pushing through even when it seems like there is no way around an obstacle, because there is always an alternate route that can be taken. I want the world to know that Smoove Sailing Services is a brand that is built off of hard work, dedication, patience, and loads of blood sweat, and tears. We strive for greatness and success, and we would love to take the world on that journey with us.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would make sure to keep every day filled with new and exciting things to try! I would make sure to take them to all of the most popular tourist attractions such as the Atlanta Zoo, Aquarium, Skyview Ferris Wheel, the World of Coke, and to Ponce City Market. We would definitely have to stop by the world famous Varsity restaurant in Midtown Atlanta, and check out a nice steakhouse for dinner. I would also be sure to take her to a few famous nature points in the metro Atlanta area. Some of these spots would be Stone Mountain, Kennesaw Mountain, or the famous Silver Comet Trail. I would also take her to visit some of the sports arenas such as the Battery and State Farm Arena, and end the trip stopping by one of my favorite burger places downtown called The Vortex. We can’t forget stopping by the infamous Insomnia for a late night cooking craving. There is so much that we could do!

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 dedicate my shoutout to anyone who has supported me in my personal and business endeavors. Having a solid support system really makes a difference and it motivates me to keep going.
