We had the good fortune of connecting with Jazmine Robinson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jazmine, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
The thought process behind starting N2Skin by 4K was a bit different from the my other business ventures as this one fell somewhat out of nowhere! I had no intentions of beginning a skincare line. I began developing the products which I now sell, for my own sensitive skin, and when Covid hit, my children had the assignment to have an act of service, for their Bible activity for the week. They helped me prepare the scrubs, we baked muffins, and hand wrote cards and created cute little goodie bags. That was where it began to take shape through vessels God chose to use. (Ashley Heaton, such a sweetheart inside and out true beauty.) We kept getting asked if we sold this stuff. Of course not. At the time my Educational Development Business was doing well, I had my routine with my little ones homeschooling, which was their norm, prior to Covid. So absolutely no intentions. However, as a woman of faith, I did not want to miss out on a blessing God was trying to give me so I prayed and he answered. We formulated a soft Launch and within hours we were sold out and had 2 custom orders for a total of 42 jars of scrub. We were floored. The children were excited and honestly it felt like I didn’t know what I was doing, but it was a great learning experience.
We continued to pray and with the response and God’s blessing we began to design our Brand into what now is advancing into an Organic Elite Skincare Line, housing not only the scrubs we began with, but body whips, lip scrubs, and facial cleansers. We couldn’t be more blessed.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
What sets our products apart from other businesses as there are a million and one, is that we don’t look at other brands as competition. We support other brands and have taken pride in delivering quality products over quantity. We have transitioned our packaging several times already to meet the requests of our client base, as we value their input for the products we make for them to indulge in. We are most proud of the impact our products have truly had in such a short period of time, along with the genuine support of those willing to try an up and coming brand.
It has definitely not been easy. As with all business ventures there have been hurdles and the leaking of jars to several package changes, to offering larger quantities were all growth challenges that we have overcome.
1. You cannot have a business that perfectly functions no matter how well you plan, when humans are involved there will be issues.
2. When you are kind and honest your customers understand and are more likely to work with you through mishaps.
3. Things take time to develop and you must learn to trust the process, don’t doubt your skill, trust the highs and lows by learning to ride the waves.
What the world should know about N2Skin by 4K is that as long as God continues to bless it, great things will continue to ensue, and the BEST IS YET TO COME! It all literally started with an act of kindness.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Ooooo…this one is definitely fun. Given the recent events, I would definitely hit up Fosters Crab and Pasta, which is a carry out only at the moment spot in Fairburn, a definite go to if you love seafood and Pasta, which by chance are my favs. Blaze Steak and Seafood, the crab cakes are AmAzInG and so is their French Toast. Hangout would definitely be chill so a cool skate joint or Bowling Zone would be my go to. Closing the ventures with a good Worship Service. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
God has made it all possible so first and foremost I thank Him for allowing such blessings, my husband and my children, as well as my family that supported as well.
