Here is the space where I get to share who I am and what I am about. But, really who am I? The first thing that may come to mind is I am a consultant, a strategist, an operations specialist, a project manager. I am someone who has spent over a decade working with Wall Street firms, business professionals, small businesses, and start-ups. And, while this is all true, who is really Yasmeen (pronounced Yas-MEEN)?
I am a parent whose goal is to find a more profitable way to earn a living without sacrificing family time or enjoying life. I am someone who understands how doggone hard it is to raise children, be married and create a space for yourself as a women. Like you I contend with the highs and lows of life. Some days I manage it well while others not so well.
I am a believer in life-work balance, not the other way around and believe our world, our children, our family and ourselves would be better off if we could incorporate work into our lives. I value the importance of generating income to put food on the table and a roof over our heads, but also know that this can be done without the 9-5 constraints.
Through my experiences, I have discovered creative ways to reach my goals when conventional methods have been unsuccessful and enjoy talking about this practice with others.
Aside from that, I am a lover of neo-soul music, HBCUs and NYC. I have two boys who are my heart, an amazing husband and remarkable support cast made up of my parents, siblings, and extended family. I want to make my imprint on the world and I hope to offer advice which makes the lives of my fellow parents and burgeoning entrepreneurs just a tad bit easier.
