Hi, I’m Jazmine Pente’



Hi, I’m Jazmine Pente', a small business tax consultant, podcast creator, self development coach, e-book author and advocate for healing & self mastery. Born in Kansas City, MO and raised Pine Bluff, AR, I have dedicated the last 15 years of my life to understanding and addressing the systematic programming, self-inflicted pain and undeveloped skills that have historically impacted our community.

Through my work, I created the lifestyle brand Grit & Glowry Incorporated,  including the Grit & Glowry Podcast and Grit & Glowry University. Where I explore the complexities of spirituality, self-identity, development and healing. My work often centers around my own experiences of being a young black teenage parent and high school drop out and others like me that have unique challenges that have been historically overlooked and undervalued. I am a fierce advocate for business development, self mastery and skill enhancement in the Black community.

My work is characterized by its deep empathy, raw approach and powerful storytelling. 

My work has been featured in a variety of seminar panels and small business credit lines. I am also a private-sector & corporate speaker and consultant. I have curated high level conversation panels, coached over 100 clients and led programs on business development and self mastery.

I currently reside in Kansas City, Missouri, where I continue to work, write, speak, and advocate for the transformation of an undervalued African American audience.

While completing the Bank of America, Female Entrepreneur Program at Cornell University in 2023, I created & offered a pilot 7 day life transformation program. Inviting 32 students to go through extensive self development, exploring topics such as self identity, health & wellness, money mindset and more. The program had huge success and with the help of my team and community, I’m now offering it to the general public. We just wrapped up our 2nd cohort of the challenge. Stay tuned and be sure to sign up for the Grit & Glowry email list so you don’t miss the opportunity to go through this guided transformational challenge offered only 2 times per year.
