Jasmine Lawrence Founder EDEN BodyWorks
asmine Lawrence is arguably every girl’s modern day shero and undeniably one of the hardest working woman we know! At the tender age of 13, Lawrence created EDEN BodyWorks due to a chemical relaxer that went bad at the age of 11; and to fill her need for affordable, all natural hair and body care products. Despite being a millionaire with a company whose products span the United States in stores like Wal-mart, Kroger’s, Sally’s and Walgreens; Lawrence left her Williamstown, N.J. home to become a yellow jacket at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA, where she received her engineering degree. Now at 22, in addition to owning her own company, Lawrence is a Program Manger at Microsoft for the Xbox One; a role she says is most challenging. Lawrence has shared her success with the likes of Oprah, but tells us that being an entrepreneur takes more than just having an idea that will make money. It involves pushing yourself to your limits, sacrificing and learning fast from failures. It’s both a rough and rewarding road to travel. Ultimately living your dream is worth it and the experience is life changing. Anything is possible.
