If your name is Jasmine, the meaning of your name as a delicate flower doesn’t keep you from being a responsible, dependable, strong leader. You are someone who likes to manage and lead all situations in which you find yourself, and these qualities help you to be a success in business—either as an administrative or managerial leader. You are determined to get things done, and you certainly don’t want anyone or anything to stand in your way. This sometimes makes it difficult for you to accept advice or delegate control to somebody else. But you are a problem-solver and the ability to manage a group towards achieving a goal actually makes you the natural one to be in control.
All of these strong leadership qualities translate to financial success for you as a Jasmine. Because of your strong desire for quality and perfectionism, you use your prosperity to surround yourself with the best. Your strong managerial tendencies might sometimes be tough to soften, causing others to think of you as a “control freak.” However, you have a sincere desire to help others and bring out the best in them, which makes you truly valued and admired among friends and colleagues alike!
