Why Making “Selfish Decisions” Will Make You a Stronger Entrepreneur

Lemme tell you one of the best gifts I’ve gotten this year…

The opportunity to rediscover who I am and what kind of business I want to have.

And this started because of something my team said… “Let us run the operations”. 

You see, the business had reached a point where we had a strong team in place, and they generously offered to handle the day-to-day, giving me the freedom to focus on casting the vision for Social Curator and deciding our next moves.

After making what felt like a “selfish decision” and releasing the things I thought only I could do, I started realizing how powerful the team was and how ready and willing they were to take the ball and run it down the field. 

I had the opportunity to talk about this process in detail with Jen Kamara on her podcast, The Jennifer Kamara Podcast

In fact, Jen asked me “Who is Jasmine Star, today?” and that led to an entire conversation on rediscovery, taking risks, making “selfish” decisions, and prioritizing both work and family. I loved it – and I hope you do, too.
