Full name: Jasmyn Mason

Hometown: Houston, TX

Alma Mater: Texas Southern University 

What makes you a Black Southern Belle: I am a young black ambitious lady who believes in her business plan.

What is your passion in life: I dreamed of being a provider, growing up was not rough for me but i watched others around me struggle. In high school I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. 

Why did you choose an HBCU: TSU was the college my mom attended when I was born in the 90’s. I thought it would be cool if I went to the college too. 

The greatest obstacle faced to date: I feel sometimes I am not focused enough on my business. I believe I can be working more on my business and i am not focused on it at the same time I am. 

Who inspired you: Me. I wanted to do something different. I wanted to have something forever. I created a business and inspired myself. 

Best quality: Never Quitting, I am always motivating myself. I am encouraging myself to press forward every day to reach my goals.

Worst quality: I show empathy. I show empathy to those who so not show enthusiasm. Showing too much empathy is my weakness. Showing others genuine hospitality is my worst quality.

Jasmyn’s story: 
Right after high school my goal was to be an entrepreneur, I’ve always known I wanted to be an entrepreneur ever since my first visit to the home of Todd M. Johnson. The entrepreneur experience was mine personally, I enjoyed every bit. I watched how he had no worries because he had a great team. His guest was quiet when he spoke, raised millions of funds for his high school, and he had a personality. I went to Mr. Todd’s home with Al La Carte Catering and Dennis a very great personal chef and a few other names who are awesome to work with, I was working as a hostess. I was getting paid to serve millionaires in the heart of River Oaks. That changed the game forever. Forget being a GM for another company, I then wanted to focus on my girl power opportunities.

I went to Everest Institute for a year to complete a medical assistant certificate program also known as a trade. While all my friends were in college I was making, it happens working a real job in the medical center for Houston Methodist. I worked closely with Dr. Rachel Thompson, Dr. Ratan, and Dr. Hailey Hall. I went through another certification process to be registered as a medical assistant. I had gained way more experience working close with the three Obstetrics and gynecology physicians in the real world before I went to college.

I currently am in college at TSU and worked for the university in Human Resources. I was getting paid $800 a month, every month working only 20 hours a week as a student. I have a fabulous way of getting along with others with my woo personality. I introduced the handbags to the Vice President, Finance Director, and the Payroll specialist. I created a giveaway campaign since I was still introducing my business to women at the university. I made $155 in sales the first week I introduced the handbags.

I went to a flea market and rented a booth owned by Cole’s market. They allowed me to rent for $14, charged the community $2 to come in and shop. The Cole’s flea market taught me that I should expand my handbag business. Now I have handbags for girls and women.
