This led to a partnership with SASS Management, expanding opportunities for local talent across the nation. Yasmin’s innovative thinking sparked the creation of Kalgoorlie Fashion Week, filling a void in the fashion scene of rural WA.
Her entrepreneurial journey took an extraordinary turn when she, seven and a half months pregnant, embarked on a trip to the United States to sell her tech company, Tagroom, an online media company experiencing rapid growth, to MOKO Social Media Limited, a New York-based company listed on NASDAQ (MOKO) and ASX (MKB).
Understanding the challenges faced by small business owners, Yasmin established The Market Hub Perth, a pop-up shop supporting local entrepreneurs by providing affordable shared retail space.

Within the studio, she operates The Bub Society, a 3D baby ultrasound clinic. Despite her busy schedule, Yasmin values balance in life and enjoys dancing, spending time with her daughters, indulging in doughnuts, watching TV series with her husband, and showcasing her culinary skills as a talented chef.
