We had the good fortune of connecting with Jazmyn Lacey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jazmyn, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My Thought Process’ is a Major Process I say that because I’m very specific on my businesses & the time I invest in it ‘ I tend to give my all to Jazzy Lashes & Jazzy everything Soulfood! ‘ I believe what you give out to the universe ‘ you will receive blessings back 10 times more. I’m dedicated to the Fullest ! This is all I have !

I made a sacrifice’ I worked down in the French Quaters making pralines’ I started My first small business Jazzy Lashes & Beauty LLC right out my grandma home in the 7thward of Downtown New Orleans! I went from zero customers to 50 customers weekly online sales. Not a big deal to some but major for me ‘ I took 400 dollars out my paycheck from southern candy makers to help myself to start . From there I started to sale out every week! I started my second business during the pandemic Jazzy everything Soulfood’ y’all know I was always a cook so it came so easy for me ! I sold my first day it was major in less than 2 weeks I made 1’500 off of supper plates! I was so shocked! I cried instantly ! I didn’t know how much my people loved food! We are the home of good food down in New Orleans! I’ve been selling out every since ! Praise God!so glad I work for me Now! & I’m so humble & Greatful!
