Jasmine Star, CEO of Social Curators, On Growing Through Challenges & Making Friends As An Introvert

Powerhouse Women

When Jasmine Star got on stage at the Powerhouse Women 2022 event and said, “Overwhelm is the abundance of what we once prayed for,” my entire perspective shifted. I invited her on the show today to unpack that message and go a little deeper on how to grow through challenges.  We discuss her backstory and certain mindset pieces that she had to overcome early on in her entrepreneurial journey. As a fellow introvert, Jasmine highlights how she develops friendships and manages how they evolve. Plus, she talks about what she’s doing to stay grounded in her vision and intention for this year, which is all about feeling fulfilled as a mom, wife, and business owner.  In this episode we talk about: The moment that Jasmine realized she had the capacity and calling to start a business  Defining what success, freedom, and purpose mean for you  Measuring your progress in an authentic way A powerful exercise to work through moments of overwhelm  Jasmine’s strategy for building a network that lifts her up and honors who she really is If you loved today’s episode, please share your favorite takeaways or your own systems and processes by screenshotting this episode and tagging us on Instagram!

Discover Your Source of Power to Create Your Platform with Jasmine Star

Aww Shift

In today’s episode, our guest is Jasmine Star. She is a photographer and business strategist who empowers entrepreneurs to build a brand, market it on social media, and create a life they love.  [3:06] Why should I listen to you?  I have the unique ability to hear a story and the end of the story.  [3:36] Where did that come from?  I didn't realize that this was a source of power for me until adulthood. But what I realized growing up is that I'm a brown girl and the daughter of an immigrant. I grew up obese as a child. I wasn't the kid that someone's like, wow, that kid's spectacular. I believe that I'm a professional. People watches, dial in, and drill down on who this person is, what drives them, and what they want. I'm not special. I just pulled a mirror up to what somebody wants and can't find the right words and I make them feel very seen and known and understood at that moment. [7:24] What was the transition of going from being a quiet person to being more outgoing and speaking up?  There are two distinctions and that is there's the girl from the hood, who will do whatever it takes to get where you want to go, and then there's the human that realizes the purpose and power and being 100% who you are.  I will do things other people want to get results that other people don't. My approach is different from anybody else's approach. I find myself in is, I've always learned that I will get more genuinely interested in other people than trying to get 1000 people interested in me. And it is the people who I talk to on the periphery that are never the ones who are the most captivating, but those who are the most powerful.  Good things happen when you are not the center of attention and trying to get other people interested in what it is you do.  [10:42] Was there something as a kid or teenage years where you experienced a transformation?  For me, it wasn't a transformative moment. I did not have the scales rising. I didn't have a family with a deep sense of self-love and purpose. It was like a style. It was just a muscle that I realized the people who had the thing I wanted and the power in which they possessed. I noticed that they would do certain things to get to where they were and I thought to myself, am I capable of doing a little of what they have done? and the answer to anyone asking that question is if you're asking the question, you have the ability, it's just whether or not you'd have the courage to deploy against the very thing you desire. For me, it wasn't overnight. I just realized that every time I exerted a bit of effort. I fell on my face, swallowed my pride, and then continued trying again. I just realized that one of the mantras that have carried me through life is I can't lose if I don't quit.  [13:29] Can you walk us through when you started and what the journey is like? I got a full-ride scholarship to UCLA law school and while I was there, I was sad, stressed, and overwhelmed. My mom had a relapse of brain cancer during my first year of law school and then everything got flipped upside down because she had battled for eight years at this time. The doctor said her time had come and so in addition to being depressed about being in Moscow, I found a deep depression around life, purpose, and God,  and I quit law school. I had three years to go back to reclaim my scholarship. But I said I need to take a medical leave because I need to be with my mom. I moved back home with my parents, and I don't know which way is up but all I know is that I want to marry my high school sweetheart. Someone I've been dating at this point, for about nine years, and I wanted my mom to see us get married. We plan a wedding in like three months. The doctor said she won't walk but she was able to walk down the aisle with me.  After the wedding, my husband asked me if I was still going back to law school and I said no.  He asked a singular question: if I could do one thing and be happy for the rest of my life, what would it be? And I said, I would be a photographer and within the first year, I built a six-figure revenue stream on photography. I started teaching other photographers how to build better businesses. And then slowly thereafter I started teaching other creatives how to build better businesses. And then I started consulting with medium-sized companies and in every iteration of this career, I slowly started realizing I have a skill set of breaking down a big idea into small actionable steps. So then I started creating digital courses that changed my life, and my career. My financial objectives then created a membership on the back of continuous education, and then in 2021, decided to turn the membership into a full-on SAS tech platform where we empower small business owners with the marketing resources that they need for their business.  [18:37] What advice do you have for people that are deadly afraid of creating a business?  As I went through the journey of choosing a photographer for my wedding, I realized that I was not making an intelligent business decision. I wasn't even making a logical decision. I was making 100% emotional decisions for an emotional transaction and it was at that moment I realized that I would lose playing the talent game. I will lose playing the marketing game. I will lose in the business game. I can win in an emotional game. And it was the first time that I flexed that muscle in understanding that I could connect with people on a human-to-human level. And then I quickly distilled that at the time I was working part-time for my daddy's church. So I didn't make a lot of money. So the risks were low. I just thought to myself, Well if I can book five clients, if I can emotionally connect with somebody who believes in my capacity to do a very simple thing on a very special day. I just need five to match what I was making at this church like I said, not a lot of money. So the minute I was able to book the clients, I was then officially in business. And so I didn't have to ask people to make a transaction. What I had to do was to appeal to an emotional aspect or an emotional decision. And every single iteration thereafter can I connect with some of these deepest desires and showcase a transformation? If I do that, then I don't have to ask for a sale. I simply have to make an offer and then they decide based on the equity that had built up.  [21:18] How did you go through the journey of getting those five clients?  My dad is a pastor in East Los Angeles with a sizable church and I thought to myself nepotism at its finest. Let me offer my services for free to people who would say no to free. And lo and behold a lot of people said no because when you offer something for free it isn't. There are three reasons why people will stop business and the number one is money. They have a hard time asking for money because they feel like it's a charitable donation or they feel like somebody's been benevolent because they believe that's a choice and a decision. The second is denial. People have a hard time saying no to receiving a note because they don't receive the note as a note of the offer they see receiving no as a no to them human. And then lastly, it's the belief that even though you love your product and your service, you love your business, you are not 100% sure that somebody couldn't else get something cheaper, faster, better. So these three things are the negative narrative that we keep in our minds as business owners and I decided to break that barrier.  [23:58] How can someone develop that kind of belief in themselves? So if you're so worried about people saying no, I always suggest roleplaying with your friends. Give an offer and have your friends say no and then you have to come back and say but how do we get to a why you strengthen your skills by being told no. I don't ask for a sale, I make an offer and that allows emotional distance. Do you know how many times we say no in a day? I don't want to watch that on Netflix. No, I don't want that meal. No, I don't want to go there. But it's not anything against like the show on Netflix, the food, or the location. It's really like that's not where I'm at right now. So I just really put a distance between that and the belief I simply state the truth. There is somebody better, cuter, wiser, faster, and cheaper that will sell the very thing that I am. But the thing that nobody else has is the way that I see the world, the way that I present things. You present that to somebody if it's an alignment and so yes, it's not alignment to know we continue moving forward.  [27:18] How have you in the recent months or years kind of dove in and noticed and looked at the mindset of people or even of yourself and the success that's tied to it?  I read a book a few years ago that had a radical shift in how I did business and it was I look back at what was like some really big tipping points and it was this particular year that I read this particular book, it was called Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck. There are two types of people. People with a growth mindset and a limited mindset, and are born fixed. I read the book and I realized that my foundation was fixed. My buildings, my emotions, and my structures were fixed. I realized that that was the greatest disservice that I can do myself. And it was at that time that I started realizing you're playing small to win when you set out to play games, you are unqualified to play understanding, it is highly unlikely that you will win, but losing at a bigger game is better than winning at the world's smallest one. Everything stated for me everything said it is still a challenge every single day.  [35:32] What’s the thing that you hope to create for people who come across you?  I don’t think it’s a great answer. It is just the answer that is the truest version of why I do what I do. I was 26 years old with no idea of what business was. All of a sudden, I saw how big the world was and how the internet democratized the way people showed up. The internet gave unqualified people the chance to work their way into qualification and I was on the curb of that. All I want to tell people is that the very thing you want to do is on the other side of consistency. It might not be as big as you want but if you are consistent, you will improve and do well in it. Be consistent, make an offer and remain attached to what you do.  [46:10] What promise did God make to the world when he created you?  I will be a reminder that you are enough. What you do is enough, who you are is enough and what you say is enough.  Key Quotes  [9:50-9:57] Good things happen when you are not trying to get other people interested in what you do.  [12:52-12:56] If you’re not transparent enough for people to dislike you, you’ll never be transparent enough for people to love you.  [26:22-26:27] If you can separate yourself from what you are doing, it will be a humongous relief.  How to connect with Jasmine Star Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jasminestar/?hl=en Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/JasmineStar/ Website: https://jasminestar.com/

So we are doing something different. Now, as you know, because I've just introduced what episode on 253, I have done a lot of episodes. And it's summer. And I also, as you know, if you've been listening for a while and if you haven't welcome, I'm so happy you're here, you know, I'm loving the garden and I just thought, you know what?   Over the summer, it might be nice to not put out some new content. It might be nice to replay some of the amazing, amazing humans I've already interviewed on this podcast. And obviously last week we had the phenomenal Denise Duffield-Thomas, which is so very exciting. And I just thought I have interviewed some crazy, amazing people.   And so many of those people I interviewed really early on and I just thought, do you know what I want to make my life a little bit easier for myself when, when it's the summer. And cause obviously I'm a mom and I have my daughter and I'm gonna wanna take some time off with her. But also I really wanna reuse some of these phenomenal episodes that I've done and cut them back out into the world because they're so good.   And obviously I've heard them cause I was on them, but I've re-listened to them before doing the intros and outros and I've forgotten how ACE they were and it makes me so genuinely excited that I'm I have these conversations with these people.   It's so cool. So I am replaying four episodes over the next four weeks. Now one thing you gotta bear in mind is my interviewing skills. I hope to goodness have improved. In fact, one of the interviews I'm playing next week, it was my second ever interview. So you know that that's a lot of interviews since then.   So you have to bear that in mind you also have to bear in mind that some of the content that they might talk about. So like on today's episode, there are things we talk about on Instagram. And they might not still be relevant because obviously this episode was recorded a couple of years ago. However, all of them have amazing content that still stands today and the conversations are brilliant and I just love them, which is why I'm replaying these particular episodes.   The other thing you have to bear in mind is the sound quality may not be as good. It should be fine, but just if there, if the sound quality isn't as kind of bang on, then you'll know that's why cause again, in the early days I didn't have the mic and the setup. And the things that I have now, but for me, I forget.   And I think we all do. And actually, you know, I just want you to think for a minute. Cause I had this conversation in the club, in the executive club the other day. Someone was beating themselves up for something that they feel like they hadn't done. And I actually had to remind her, I've now worked with this amazing lady for years, and I actually had to remind her how far she's come, because we forget so very easily what we've done.   It's like we achieve one thing and it's like, great onto the next thing. And like, we shouldn't, we should remember how amazing these things are. I'm super glad I've decided to do this as a bit of a celebration of like, oh my goodness, I've done a lot of episodes. I've spoke to a lot of amazing people. And I wanna remember that.   And I wanna remind myself how cool that was. So today's episode is one of my most listened to episodes. It's with the amazing Jasmine Star. Who I just loved, like talking to her was so cool. She's genuinely a really nice human, really, really nice human. And I'm really glad I'm getting to replay this one.   Now, as I've said, we talk about Instagram and obviously Instagram has moved on somewhat since we had a conversation. In fact, I wonder when this was first aired. What actual episode is it? Let me just look two seconds and try and find what episodes it was. Episode 51. So like, if you think I do 52 episodes a year, someone do math was that four years ago or something.   So yeah, Instagram has moved on, but some of the stuff has story for one is brilliant. Her conversation is great. Some of the strategy stuff still stands and it's just a really, really good. I was gonna say, interview, that makes me sound like I'm saying I did a good interview, she was great to interview and I think you're gonna love it.   And it made me smile. She's so much fun. We have a laugh. It's great. So the first replay you're gonna get is the amazing Jasmine Star. Enjoy.   So I'm so excited this week to welcome to the podcast, Jasmine Star.   Well, thank you for having me. I couldn't even more excited. It's been a while. This has been a while in the making, but here we are.   Yeah. Oh, we have, we've been talking about it for a little while, so it's finally lovely to get you on. And I'm so excited to kind of introduced to my audience cause I'm fairly sure a lot of my audience will know who you are. But I have been following you for ages. I was lucky enough to meet you last year in San Diego.   And in fact, you hooked me up with a great photographer. Uh, Tim King, he's done a photos for me a few times. So we'd had a conversation about that, but it's so nice to get you on and hear about how things are going, cause I know that you've been doing some really exciting things. Haven't you?   I've I have been excited. And when I'm excited, I do exciting things. So yes, , it's been a good year so far.   Awesome. So just as a kickoff, if you don't mind, in case my audience don't know who you are, it would be great to give them a bit of background of who you are, where you've come from. And also, I want you to do this because I've already said in the intro that you are an amazing storyteller.   So. I know whenever you tell any story, it's just, I can't help, but just sit and wanna listen. So if you could do that, that would be awesome.   Oh yeah. There's no pressure in this story at all. I was feeling none and all of a sudden I feel this abundance. Like I better stand on this stage and deliver an academy award where the story right about now, you know, I think that the more we converse throughout this conversation, the story will naturally unfold, but I think it's going to expedite where people or why people see my passion for creating a business and creating freedom, but also using social media as a vehicle for growth in a business.   And so in 2005, I earned a full ride, uh, law school scholarship, and it was the thing I was supposed to do with my life. I thought that as a first generation immigrant daughter, first generation college student, first generation postgraduate student, that this was the thing that would define me and really help expedite my family into a different stratosphere of being American culture and, uh, being American.   And when I was there, I just realized how unhappy I really was. It just wasn't the best fit for me, but I thought, well, this is what I'm gonna do. This is what I've worked for. And my first year of law school, my mom unfortunately had a relapse brain cancer.   And it just really rocked everybody's world because it had been an eight year battle at this time. And the doctors had said that "Her time had come and we had to start making funeral arrangements." And I think that that reprioritized everything in my life, like it forced you to, you know, have hard conversations and really say, "What do I want in life?"   And so I planned a wedding in three months to my long standing boyfriend, we'd met in high school. And I'm very like, independent was like, "I have to finish law school. This is gonna be the thing I'm very driven." And he was just waiting. He's like, "Great. I wanna marry you. And we're going to get married." I said, "Yes, just give me some time."   I had an Excel spreadsheet, color coded. I was so annoying. It's like, who was I back then? Uh, and so, um, and then all of a sudden I got that Excel spreadsheet and I literally was like "Bye. Like this doesn't matter anymore." Every all, all your plans don't matter if you're not surrounded by the people who love you and who you love.   And so we planned wedding in three months and against, against all odds. My mom and my dad walked me down the aisle and it was the best day of my life. And I came back from, uh, the honeymoon and we, I had to make the declaration to go back to law school and I did not want to. So my brand new husband asks me the most beautiful question.   He said, "If you could do one thing for the rest of your life and be happy, what would it be?" And I said "Well I think I wanna be a photographer." To which he replied, "Well, you need a camera first. Right?" And I was like, "Yeah." I, I detailed, probably detailed. I probably need a camera that would help. And so then on January 1st, 2006, I opened my very first camera as a gift from him.   By 2009, uh, my business was voted one of the top photographers in the world and the business just unfolded and grew naturally, organically. And then also when social media came around in that 2010, 2011 timeframe, I really learned how to harness that power, create storytelling conversations that grew the business, and then empowered me to, uh, teach and coach and walk other entrepreneurs, how they could do the same for their business.   That was a little bit of a long story, but not, but now up to date.   And that's perfect. And actually. I love your story because the fact that you had your life planned out, and if I can make assumptions about you, based on what I've seen, you know, you are very driven. So I should imagine at that time you were totally like.   This is what's gonna happen. And then I guess it takes something as, uh, big and dramatic as, as obviously your mom being unwell for you to go actually, is that what I really want? You know, and that's a, that's a hard thing to think about, isn't it?   It's a very difficult thing to think about, but I think it's, uh, it's a choice. I think we are all given a choice at the way we're going to look at a situation and back then I looked at it as a very difficult situation, but I had, I was equally as empowered to look at that situation and think, my God, I've been given a gift. And it's only years later over a decade later that I can look back and think that that moment was like the impetus.   That moment was the catalyst that forced me to say what, who am I and what do I really want? And so it is a gift and far greater than anything else. My mom at the time was my north star. And I'm so happy to say that still to this day, she is my north star against all odds. She beat cancer. And the doctors were amazed and she's a walking miracle and yes, I needed a jolt in the universe to wake me up and say, what are you gonna do with your one wild and beautiful, precious life? And I decided it's not gonna be a lawyer.   Yeah, no, that's amazing. And, and I heard you, I can't remember what I was watching with you on, but you know, you talked about the fact of. You've thought to yourself, you know, you've got what maybe 20 years left at that point. If you, you know, if the same thing was gonna go down the same road, and then you said something like, you know, we're, we're even, you know, we shouldn't ever assume it's even 20 years, we might not even have 20 minutes.   Oh, absolutely. So at the time my mom was 50 years old. When the doctors had said she has a couple months to live. And at the time I was 25 and I thought to myself, if I have 25 years left in my life, I don't wanna die a lawyer. And then this dark realization struck me. I'm not guaranteed 25 years. I'm not even guaranteed 25 minutes and we, none of us are.   So if we were gonna live under that is like, as if today was like my last day, what kind of legacy do I wanna leave? What kind of decisions do I wanna make? What kind of wild and crazy, beautiful, scary, amazing, brilliant life do I wanna live that's not under the shadow of expectations. That was a game changer for me.   And you know what, from an outsider looking in and don't get me wrong, you know, and we can talk about this how, we, we project certain things on Instagram and we don't necessarily put the, the awful times, but it does look like you are having the most phenomenal time that you are doing the most amazing things.   First off you live in one of the most amazing parts of the world. Obviously you live in California and it's stunning and it's warm and it's sunny and you know, but it does genuinely look as if you know, I bet you must look back there and think if I carried on, where would I be compared to what I'm doing? What I wake up to every single day now?   Oh my God. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think that I could be living in an alternate universe where I would be in the top floor of a downtown Los Angeles high-rise building. Being a successful lawyer, because I do believe that success is a foregone conclusion, not just for myself, but for anybody who puts their mind and effort and soul into whatever, they do.   And I would be that person and I would be at a place financially where I could afford paying other people to live my life instead of me making the active decision to live my life. And even if it's as simple as picking up my dry cleaning or spending a two hour lunch in the middle of the day with a friend, it's like, I would be in exchange for time and money.   And somehow. Uh, taking the risk to build the business that I want to live. I don't have to have those negotiations anymore because I could still make money and be a wise steward of my time.   Yeah, no, that's amazing. It's awesome. So let's get back to Instagram about, was it, do you think that your business changed when you really took on Instagram or do you think it was inevitable that it was going to get there, it was just a tool that you happened to be using?   Well, I believe that the caveat was there. Isn't a single platform that's going to make or break a single business or a single entrepreneur. I think that my journey on Instagram started around 2011-2012.   And it, I was, I floundered, I didn't, I even as a photographer and even as a storyteller, I didn't know how to harness the power. I was just using Instagram as like a box to check like, oh, I posted today, like, this is what I'm doing. And I floundered for far too long. I mean, I have like examples. I often share examples of like my Instagram in 2011.   And then I juxtaposed that with my Instagram in 2014. And there looks like there had been no progress. I mean, it still looks like a hot mess. Like you look like you're a junior high, it looks like you are 12 years old trying to be cool on Instagram. Nobody's engaging with you. And by, and by 2014, I was an internationally recognized photographer was a world of wide brand.   And nobody looking at that Instagram account would ever think that they would think I like wine. I like my dog. I mean, I like the beach, it looked ridiculous. And then in 2016, I looked around and I got so tired with my lack of hot spa, dedication, strategy, because I saw other people. Photographers and non-photographers using this amazing platform to build their business.   And I had all the tools to make it happen. And yet I wasn't. And so in 2016, I put a stake in the ground and I said, I am going to learn how to use this for my business. And so today I often talk about the, my plans and my strategies. And I could say that in retrospect, that yes, in 2016 was when I started my plan strategy.   But in 2016, when I started doing it, it did not feel like a plan strategy. It felt like a hot mess. I was just making mistakes every day. I was trying to figure out what works. I was looking at other people. I literally, oh my God, here I go again with my Excel spreadsheet, I kept an Excel spreadsheet. I love making some Excel, you know.   And me and me.   Alright. I mean, who does not love organization and analytics, it just kills me. It makes me excited. Somebody sends me a color coded spreadsheet and I'm like, we're getting married next week. So, um, I made an Excel spreadsheet. I listed the followers on Instagram, who I enjoy ahh just like a personal friend.   And then I listed Instagram or so I felt like we're doing a really great job at harnessing the power specifically for their business. And I wondered to myself, could I blend the two things? And again and again, I tested and tried. And though, like when I started doing it, I had such a profound change in my business.   And it was around that time, 2016, where I really stepped out onto the scene as an authority in the field. Ironically, I didn't feel like an authority. Ironically. I just felt like, Hey, I'm just trying to figure this out. And then I got picked up by major news outlets and interviews, and it has grown since there.   And I'm still a firm believer that I'm actively refining my plan and strategy as the algorithm changes, but it's been a really great thing to learn from my mistakes and then show what I know with others and then see them be met with equally as amazing results.   Yeah. And I think you're exactly right. You with the, the way these platforms are, they move and change so much that I don't think anybody honestly can sit there and say, "Oh, I've got it. It's all sussed. It's all done now."   Oh no.   Because obviously tomorrow they're gonna do an update and everything's gonna change again. And obviously I guess where you've succeeded is that you invested your time and your thought and you were, you considered exactly what you were doing. You were deliberate. That's what I was trying to think of. Deliberate in doing it. You know, you weren't just, like you said, checking up a picture thinking, oh, you know, that'll do you were really thinking about, okay, how can I use this? So I saw you speak in social media marketing world last year, and you gave me the best advice.   So. Prior to coming out, I was on, oh, you have a phrase. Are you using Instagram or are you on Instagram? Is that right?   That is. Well I don't guess you apply that.

Ep 75: One Million Downloads Celebration with Jasmine Star and Bianca Juarez Olthoff

We're Going There with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

My Friends! We're Going There Podcast has hit 1 MILLION downloads and we are here to celebrate!??I took a pause from my day and hopped on a quick call with my twin sister Jasmine Star to process and savor this moment. You know why? Because I wanted to create an Ebenezer moment. A moment that I can look back to and remember how good God has been in my life.But friends, this moment would not have been possible without YOU! I'm so grateful to all of the faithful listeners and for the not-so-faithful listeners too. Because everyone that's clicked to listen to any of the episodes on any of the platforms has been a part of this milestone. THANK YOU!!!I had a BIG dream, but I got here by starting small. I took the small step of looking up what the beginner podcasting equipment was, and bought it. That step created a ripple effect as I continued to take step after step to launch this podcast. And today, I'm celebrating 1 Million downloads. Yay!If you have listened to 1 of the one million downloaded episodes, share with me what your #1 step is going to be as you pursue your dream. Post on your Stories what your #1 step is and tag me @BiancaOlthoff on it. Like my sister Jasmine said: You need to be ok with having the courage to put yourself out there and be publicly accountable and you need to be ok with being mediocre. You also need to be ok with God blessing what you're doing to get to step #2. I'll be cheering you on from the sidelines!Love you friends!??BRESOURCES:What's your #1 step?
