Today we’d like to introduce you to Jasmine Garcia-Freeland.

Hi Jasmine, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
JazMaria Boutique’s purpose is to empower women to find balance and confidence within themselves through human connection and fashion. JazMaria Boutique operates online from Buda, Texas. We offer a fashionable collection of modern, comfortable women’s apparel and accessories. We also offer unique gift options, beauty & wellness natural products, and occasional food and drink items.

Timeline of how JazMaria Boutique came to be:
September 15, 2014: Launched first business in Philadelphia, PA, as All that Jazz and sold jewelry.

June 15, 2019: Merged All That Jazz and Agnes and Dora and renamed the business to JazMaria Boutique in Buda, TX.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My journey as a business owner has been nothing but a great experience. I have learned so much along the way and continue modifying to meet current trends. The most challenging experience was during the pandemic when the market went down. I shifted to different products and created relationships with my customers more than selling. It turned my business into an amazing platform, and I increased more customers and followers. It’s all about the mindset and the right attitude. I thrive more with my business.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a full-time deaf share advocate who works with Survivor Healing through Advocacy, Resources, and Empowerment. I serve anyone suffering from the traumatic experiences of sexual abuse, rape, and domestic violence. I also offer case management and advocacy to Deaf victims of domestic/sexual violence. We may be able to help with: Planning for their safety and getting connected to services with other agencies competing Crime Victims Compensation (CVC) applications going with them to a court or the basic hospital items like food, diapers, soap, shampoo, linens, and school supplies.

What changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
I see myself becoming a great deaf Latina influencer and doing more business consultants. I would love to bring my business platform to the next level, but I am not sure what it is yet. I am in the middle of exploring a new change.
