Rank #1: 159: How to NOT Let Fear Cripple You When You’re Starting Your Side Hustle (Side Hustle Series Pt 1)

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode kicks off The Side Hustle Summer Series! This August, I’m doing a series all about side hustling and breaking down:

  • How to not let fear cripple you when you’re starting your side hustle 
  • How to build the foundation of your business even when it’s still a side hustle 
  • Everything I learned about balancing my side hustle with my 9 to 5How to market your side hustle for FREE when you’re just getting started
  • How to finance your side hustle before it’s making Money (AND how to start monetizing)

In this kickoff episode, I get open and vulnerable about my journey from side hustle to a profitable business and talk about the disparaging thoughts I used to tell myself. I was so afraid of people thinking I was a failure because I didn’t secure a job offer after earning my Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Michigan. I eventually learned that fear was holding me back, instead of helping me grow. I hope that sharing my thoughts and how I reframed them helps you change your thinking and kickstart your side hustle.

I’m excited about this series! New episodes drop every single Wednesday!

Rank #4: 63: How to Run Your Side Hustle in 1 Hour A Day

Podcast cover
Read more

Up until this year, the last quarter of every year always felt like the most stressful for me. This year is the first year that that's not the case for me. This year, I got better at getting things done, even under pressure. In this episode I’m sharing some of the biggest mistakes I made when I first started out side hustling and what I've learned from them.

It’s important that you understand where I and most successful side hustlers went wrong and what I did to turn it around.

These mistakes could have easily been avoided if I had only known how to create a realistic goals setting system. Now, I've mastered the "less talk, more hustle" approach, and it’s what has gotten me results.

I spend less time thinking and talking about what I'm going to do and more time actually doing it.

I learned to cut out all the fluff that makes you FEEL like you're doing something (to-do lists, buying fancy planners, well organized trello boards) and get down to business.

By making these mistakes, I also learned some key lessons as to why most side hustlers aren’t making the progress they anticipated. You’re probably not accomplishing your goal, because you bit off too much or not taking action because you want everything to be perfect and are afraid of making a mistake.

If you want more guidance on how to actually get things done, consider learning​ ​my​ ​signature Goal Getter Action Plan​. I can show you how to run a side business in 7 hours per week.

In this episode, I break down how you can quit stalling and make moves on  your side hustle. Listen through to the end to get more info plus an early bird discount code to my signature Goal Getter Action Plan for just $27.

Rank #5: Ep 56: How Lisa Price Turned Her Side Hustle Into A Multimillion Dollar Business

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair, we have Lisa Price, Founder of multi-million dollar hair and beauty company Carol’s Daughter.I am really honored to have Lisa in the guest chair, as hers is a product that transformed my personal journey to loving my natural hair and natural beauty. When I learned about Carol’s daughter’s back in the day when I was in college, I used to have it shipped to my dorm room. And this is when I was a broke college student and had no business ordering anything online. But that’s how crucial it was for me to obtain a product that could actually moisturize and nourish my kinky threads. And since then, I have followed Lisa Price’s entrepreneurial journey.

If you don’t know, Lisa Price and Carol’s Daughter has been in business for over two decades.

In the early 1990s, Lisa began experimenting with making her own fragrances and perfume sprays when she wasn’t busy working at her full-time job in TV production.In 1992, Price dedicated herself full time to creating beauty products. With $100 in cash, her own kitchen, and the simple notion that people should follow their hearts, Lisa started building the collection that would become a beauty revolution.

In August of 1994, Price officially established Carol’s Daughter (the company lovingly named after her mother). Initially starting out with a handful of steady customers, those numbers grew in leaps and bounds as women outside her neighborhood and circle of friends began to take notice.

Today, Carol’s Daughter sells millions of dollars’ worth of products, having launched an exclusive collection in Target stores nationwide and on Target.com in March 2014 as well as extending into select Walgreens in March 2015. As a culmination to the Carol’s Daughter business trajectory, Lisa sold her company to L’Oréal USA in November 2014.

Today on the show, Lisa walks us back through the journey of building Carol’s Daughter to what it is today.

Rank #6: Ep 118: Building Your Brand, Growing Your Following & Leveraging INFLUENCE w/ Brittany Hennessy

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair we have Brittany Hennessy.

Brittany is a marketer and the author of INFLUENCER: Building Your Brand in the Age of Social Media. She was the first-ever Senior Director of Influencer Strategy & Talent Partnerships for Hearst Magazines Digital Media, and the co-founder of Carbon.

Before reaching out to Brittany, I read her book and I found it extremely helpful. This year, I found myself on the receiving end of more requests for brand collaborations, partnerships and influencer posts that I ever had before. I used the INFLUENCER book templates to confidently negotiate counter offers or decline opportunities that were not right for my business without burning a bridge. So, as usual, when I discover something useful, I want to share it with you guys.

I think that anyone can benefit from Brittany’s knowledge about influencer marketing. Especially if you have plans to build out and monetize your personal brand or ever work with another brand for any reason, for example having them sponsor an event, a podcast, a blog, or if you are invited to speak on a panel, this will be the episode to consult.

Rank #9: 167: How Rochelle Porter Launched Her Apparel and Lifestyle Brand While Working Full-Time

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair, we have Rochelle Porter, also known as the “Print Queen.” She is a designer who has never met a blank surface she didn’t want to draw on. But, she nearly abandoned the idea of being a designer when she learned of the unethical labors practice in the fast fashion industry. After learning this, she pursued a career in a variety of industries including investment banking and communications. 

At her lowest moment, she found an eviction notice on the door. It was at that moment she knew something had to change, so she made the move back to Atlanta. 

Slowly but surely, clues that she should look into fashion again started coming into her life and she took them as a sign to get moving. 

She did her research and launched her lifestyle brand that specializes in responsibly made fashion and home decor all while holding down steady consulting gigs.

Rank #11: Ep 88: Lifestyle Blogger Dayna Bolden on How to Turn Your Influence Into Your Income

Podcast cover
Read more

Today in the guest chair we have the dynamic Dayna Bolden. Dayna is a Lifestyle blogger and CEO of Bolden Creative Media. You may recognize Dayna’s face from her campaigns with some of our favorite beauty brands. On today’s show, Dayna will share how, by combining her passion for both beauty and fashion, she has built a strong following of engaged millennial women and an amazing social media presence, which led to major brand partnerships. As a seasoned creative director and content creator, Dayna has also captured the attention of major online and print publications, including ESSENCE and FORBES. One thing to note about Dayna, is that she has taken the blogging world by storm in a relatively short period of time. You’ll learn on the show that although she had started growing her presence before stepping out on her own, it’s when she truly invested in her personal brand that brands started calling her to partner.

She juggled a coveted career at Under Armour for as long as she could while side hustling as a lifestyle influencer, but finally stepped out on her own in 2017.

I can totally relate to Dayna’s journey of going all in on her creative passions and launching a business around her personal brand. Today, we’ll unpack the life and business journey of a lifestyle blogger and entrepreneur.

Rank #16: Ep 85: Danielle Leslie Is Growing Her Online Course into a Million Dollar Business and She Wants to Teach You How

Podcast cover
Read more

Today on the show, I am introducing you to my best kept secret: the woman who has taught me to turn my knowledge into a valuable, premium course.

Her name is Danielle Leslie and she founded Culture Add™ Labs to help companies and individuals uncover their Culture Add™ and launch profitable products online. She is also the creator of #CourseFromScratch, an 8-week online intensive that helps people create & launch their profitable & poppin’ online courses.

She has been an online marketer in Silicon Valley for almost 10 years and helped personal brands & influencers, including Guy Kawasaki, earn collectively millions of dollars by launching their online courses.

One of the reasons I wanted to have Danielle on the show is because her framework for course launches addresses our common human tendency to get stuck on the preparation part and delay your launch.

She teaches people like myself to not fall into the trap of creating your course content all before you’re ready to launch and instead, focus on what she calls the 4Cs. She breaks this all down in her masterclass, which you can sign up for at SideHustlePro.co/CourseFromScratch if you are interested.

In my own case, I have wanted to launch a podcast training program for almost a year, and I have been dragging my feet because:

  1. I was overwhelmed with the thought of breaking all of the content down
  2. I knew it was really valuable information that could make people thousands of dollars and thus I knew I would need to charge a premium price point (and I was SCARED to set that premium price point)

I turned to Danielle and with her guidance, I launched my podcast accelerator as an invite only program in February and it’s been an AMAZING experience so far.

What I’ve learned from Danielle is:

  • Focusing on creating a course that truly meets your student’s needs, means creating it with their active feedback, not creating it in a vacuum without their input
  • I’ve also learned that it’s not going to be perfect the first time you do it so you have to get down to business and start, so you can improve.

On today’s episode, Danielle gets into:

  • Her straight line to the cash formula that shatters the most popular course creation narrative
  • The tools she used to do a $20,000 course launch in 60 days with no email list
  • Her MVC method to not overthink your launch and to pre-sell your course
  • How her online course made $25,000 alone in one month on Instagram...and how it has exploded since then.
  • As this episode premieres, Danielle just crossed the $100,000 mark, her first six figure month. And in today’s episode, she breaks down how she’s quickly approaching $1M in revenue this year

If you want to learn how Danielle’s online course made $100,000 in one month alone from Instagram listen to this entire episode, and remember to sign up for her Course From Scratch class at SideHustlePro.co/CourseFromScratch.

Rank #18: 168: LIVE PODCAST! How to Play Big and Get These Coins, Sis

Podcast cover
Read more

On Wednesday, October 9, Personal Branding Strategist Maya Elious and I had a live onstage conversation about how to play big and get these coins. Maya went from running a design agency for 6 years to helping women master their message and make an impact in their industry and monetize their gifts. She’s personally helped me to level up in my business and for my very first live podcast, I couldn’t think of a more fitting guest!

On today’s episode we dish on:

  • How she evolved from creating MySpace pages to coaching women to monetize their gifts
  • How she went from thinking small to playing big and expecting more
  • How to really use content marketing to serve your community and keep those customers coming back
  • How to get and keep these coins!

OUR LIVE PODCAST CONVERSATION WAS POWERED BY VERIZON
