We had the good fortune of connecting with LaShawn Rembert and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LaShawn, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I have always had a natural desire to help women and girls in some capacity. It may have a lot to do with my up bringing, but I always knew I wanted to bring impact to my community with women in mind. In 2019, I was having a conversation with my bestfriend, when through one of our song breakouts the vision of my company was birthed. The vision was proceeded by us singing, “don’t push me cause I’m close to the edge…” at an instance and without hesitation I said, “JUMP SIS!” That’s where it all begin! I envisioned a movement of women who would live unapologetically on pupose while manifesting their best life.

What should our readers know about your business?
LaShawn Rembert International and the Jump Sis Foundation have been established to bring empowerment, impact, and change to our community that leads to a lifestyle of freedom. Our business and organization is set apart because it focuses on the total woman. We aim to cultivate the mind, body, spirit, and soul of the woman that she might lead a passionate life rooted in purpose. I am excited to be able to build a business that leads with impact. We will celebrate a full year in business in October and have made so many strides in so little time. Through our book, “JUMP Sis,” coaching programs, mentor groups, virtual programs, and in person engagements, we’ve impacted hundreds of women and are excited about the opportunity to continue to expand our reach. We’ve arrived at this point and place in business by being consistent and not being afraid to look different and standout in the marketplace in order to attract the woman who needs what we have to offer. We are firm on our morals and beliefs and allow the authentic way we show up to draw in our tribe and community of supporters, followers, and clientele. Being consistent is easy, but what’s unpopular yet necessary is pausing to gauge at what frequency your consistency will be executed and sometimes that means pulling away to assess before you continue to move forward. It’s in the moments of pause that you gain the refreshing you need as a business owner to carry forward with a clear outlook on you vision and purpose. We rely on community and support to overcome challenges. We know that big vision requires a team and we are not afraid to use our resources and ask for help or additional support where we need it. We’ve learned to pace ourselves and give ourselves grace on this journey. We’re all giving this thing a shot for the first time. Failure is not final, but an opportunity to learn and execute stronger and better the next time around. There is value in having mentors, coaches, and individuals who believe in you and your vision and that can support you and encouragement you when you go through tough times or character building days. We want the world to know that we are not building to make impact in our neighborhood alone, but our nation and other nations. LaShawn Rembert International and the Jump Sis Foundation is for every woman who’s ever had a dream, goal, or vision for her life that she gave up on. We’re here to help awaken the woman who threw in the towel and empower her to choose herself first, go after the nudge on her heart, and JUMP SIS! There’s a life of freedom attached to your JUMP!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend is in town, my hometown in South Carolina! She would know she’s in for a treat. We have an inside joke and understanding that this is, “My city!” We would spend a lot of time on Main Street and in the downtown area at The Grand or Main Course where there’s always live music to enjoy. Especially from local artist like TiffanyJ or Katera. We may even catch a show put on by 7Sunday curated by Deon Generette. We would enjoy one of the greatest chicken and waffle spots at Kiki’s chicken and waffles. I’d take her to grab some new shoes from a new, hot, and trendy shoe store on Lady Street called Solaces owned by Tiffany Taylor. Before leaving Lady street we’d pair her new pumps with a bomb thrift outfit from Now and Then owned by Naida Rutherford. Of course, before she’s heads home we have to worship at my home church, Forward City, where my Pastors are Travis and Dr. Jackie Greene.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my mother, Anita Hurst, and grandmother, Beatrice Thompson along with every woman in my life who I’ve gleaned from and been inspired by. Because they did, and still do, I can.
