Today in the guest chair is Dreena Whitfield, the founder of WhitPR, a New Jersey-based boutique strategic communications firm.

Her clients have been featured on Good Morning America, in The New York Times, Essence, and more.

You may be familiar with WhitPR client The Budgetnista, who has graced The Side Hustle Pro guest chair, and has made several appearances on The Real Daytime television show.

On today’s episode, we learn how Dreena started WhitPR in her living room in 2009; with no clients, no media contacts, and no mentors, the side job she worked for years to invest in her business during the early stages, and what side hustlers need to know about when and how to get press for your business when you’re just getting started.

Today in the guest chair we have Beatrice Feliu-Espada, the Founder of The Honey Pot Company.

The Honey Pot Company is a plant-based, chemical-free feminine care system that cleanses, protects, and balances your vagina.

Powered by herbs, made by women, and 100% natural, The Honey Pot Company is disrupting the industry with a healthy alternative to feminine care.

I love their tagline: Made by humans with vaginas, for humans with vaginas.

As women, we all have to use tampons, pads, lubricants, and subsequently worry about the contents of the products we are putting into our bodies.

Beatrice is solving for all of that. She developed the products right in her kitchen. Armed with a mission, determination, and on the job experience, she is tackling scaling her business, entering multichannel mega retailers like Target, and figuring this out as she goes.

On today’s episode, we get into how a message from an ancestor brought her business to life and how she is building her mission-driven brand. Let’s get right into it.
