“I can’t leave this earth without doing something bigger than myself.”
— Jazmin Addy
Founder and CEO of Proximity Partners, Jazmin Addy, started her business as a means to creating a better life for her children and leaving something greater for them than just the basics.
With a long-term view of building generational wealth at the forefront of her mind, Jazmin made more money in her first year of business than she earned at her corporate job, a rare feat any seasoned entrepreneur would know.
For her, starting a business meant more than just having the freedom to do whatever she wanted with her time and making just enough to pay the bills.
She wanted more and earned it.
