January 02, 2023

My life experiences, the good, bad and the ugly, are what inspired me to kick off "Coffee With Jasmin" - a weekly mini-episode series featuring practical strategies you can use to navigate the week ahead.


Tune in every Monday!

THIS WEEK: You can't build anything great without boundaries


How To Build With Boundaries

Here’s an overview of the steps I share’d today on Built In Texas:


  • Guard Your Time.You can’t take the PTO if you won’t take the PTO. If you’re off you’re off and if you aren’t taking meetings or going to events, stay firm. Setting boundaries with your time is a key ingredient to maintaining your peace and mental health.
  • No Means No. Not much to say here. No means no. Period.  
  • Guard your ideas, vision, goals & dreams. It’s a good thing to think and dream big. It’s awesome to set goals for yourself. It’s important, however, to only share them with individuals and/or groups that will receive them with an open, positive, encouraging mindset.
  • Be Selective. The partnerships and collaborations you enter into this year will set the tone for everything.
