Ooooh, y'all, do we have a treat for you in this episode!

On today's special episode, the tables are turned on Dr. Jasmine for an interview she did with fellow badass career coach Cassie Spencer on her podcast Happenstance.

You'll hear all about Dr. Jasmine's crazy journey of quitting her job and starting this business.

Her community is what ultimately led her to create The Professional Quitters, her group coaching program and community, which is all about helping you create the career you want your way. And, of course…make bank!

So today, we're celebrating community and Cassie and the first anniversary of her podcast, Happenstance!

And, of course, you'll get the DL on how Dr. Jasmine created this amazing business and community for women of color professionals.
