In this rewind episode, Zakia Blain, the CEO and Founder of FBF Body is in the Side Hustle Pro podcast guest chair today for an update episode! Zakia is the master of the pivot. 

Her company started with a fitness challenge, and when her doctors told her that she couldn’t work out anymore due to an illness, she pivoted into shapewear. 

Then, when the pandemic hit and people were not going outside and didn’t need as much shapewear, FBF Body pivoted into athleisure apparel.

FBF Body’s highly sought after shapewear and fitness apparel has taken on a cult following of its own, largely in part due to Zakia’s open and honest method of sharing herself actually wearing it and looking amazing while doing so.

On this episode, Zakia shares:

  • How she builds anticipation for her products
  • How she manages and plans out her inventory seasons in advance
  • Her monthly drop technique for new items and so much more

I became a mom in April 2020 and life has never been the same. I think becoming a mom in and of itself is hard anyway, but when you add in a global panorama? Let’s just say it’s been a bit spicy. 

In this episode I’m sharing my mood for Q4 of 2021. It’s “me season,” and I’m ready to implement all the many ideas that I have been mapping out for the last year and a half! 

Plus, I’m sharing the way Muoyo and I have divided up the juggle of full time parenting and full time careers (spoiler alert: it’s still a struggle!). I’m also sharing what I wish I knew about motherhood before I became a mom.

In this rewind episode, Teri Ijeoma is the first one to tell you that she loves investing in stocks because it allowed her to live her dreams. She is a millennial millionaire, minister, stock investor, and an entrepreneur who teaches others how to invest in the stock market to be able to pay off debt, go on trips, and pay down on mortgages. In other words, how to use stocks in real time to make money now.

Her journey has been unconventional, but has led to a path full of purpose and uniquely made for Teri. She first learned about stocks and trading in high school. After graduating from college, Teri delved into the world of consulting, but later decided she wanted to pursue something more meaningful, which led to a position in education. 

While working in education, Teri started investing in and trading stocks as a side hustle. When she grew this trading side hustle to the point of making $300/day, she decided to make the leap. In this episode, you’ll find out:

  • Why Teri quit her job in order to help people learn how to trade
  • How going to seminary helped to shape her career
  • How you can use trading as a means for supplemental income

In this rewind episode it is the final week of the Side Hustle Pro Bootcamp, and we’re going to ACT! That’s right, you’ve officially entered a “no excuses allowed” zone.

For the past three weeks, we’ve built up to this moment by getting in the zone, kicking our doubts to the curb, finding virtual mentors, starting to do the basics, and limiting the opinions of others. You’ve been equipped for this. You’re ready!

In three tips, I’m sharing how to take action and get things done, and put your side hustle out in the open because like I’ve said before...2021 is the year that we’re talking our side hustle seriously. We want to launch that product, write that blog post, record that video, and tell the world about what we did. You can’t just keep it on your computer. 

We want people to root for you when you’re starting, even if it’s not perfect, because it doesn’t have to be. Like we talked about in week one of the bootcamp, just start! You have to make your product or service in order to make it better. Think of it this way: you can be making sales while you’re improving.

And don’t forget your homework: Announce your side hustle if you haven’t already! I’m rooting for you.

In this rewind episode; you’ve already gotten the motivation you need to stop procrastinating and just go for it. We’ve even talked about pushing past the fear and doubts that might come from ourselves and others. So, this week, I want to tell you my 3-step process for taking action, making moves, and progressing on your side hustle.

It’s a tried and true formula that I’ve been using for the past five years. When I looked back on how I approached creating my podcast as a side hustle, and now, how I’m approaching creating my YouTube channel as a side hustle, I recognize that there are three things I always do.

In this episode, I’m sharing what those three things are.

I’m giving you real-world examples that I’m implementing right now, and that you can start working on too! If you’re diligent with these steps, they will work for you too. Remember, we are making moves by any means necessary in 2021.

Life happens, right? So here we are with Week 2 of the Side Hustle Pro Bootcamp!

I’m sharing my thought process and tips on how to push past the doubt and move forward with your side hustle idea. 

After Week 1 of the Side Hustle Pro Bootcamp, a lot of people reached out to me to share the doubts and fears that have been holding them back. 

I get it. Starting a new hustle is 90% mental in the beginning. 

You’ve got to work up the mental courage, because staying in the “indecision zone” is NOT beneficial to where you want to be.

Plus, you’re withholding your greatness from the world. 

Why not you? 

You’re just as capable, talented, and dedicated as anyone else. Your idea and side hustle are worthy of your attention and focus.

In this episode I’m sharing real practices I use to break out of analysis paralysis and get down to business.

This week's episode is a rewind of the Side Hustle Pro Bootcamp Week 1.

For the next four weeks, you’ll have a chance to be a part of the Side Hustle Pro Bootcamp. Don’t worry, there are no pushups, workout plan, or anything of the sort, but what you will get a grasp of is how to break things down into super small achievable steps to actually achieve your side hustle dreams. This week’s episode is all about how to START.

No more procrastination. No more playing around. In 2021, we’re going to commit and do this! Besides, the hardest part of the battle is actually starting your side hustle, but after that, it gets easier. And to be honest, you’re probably stalling because of the drive to be perfect. Stalling and overthinking can create a hamster wheel effect that’s very hard to get out of, even when you know it’s counterproductive and not necessary. Instead of focusing on the wrong things, let’s focus on the right things.

I’m taking you through the journey of: saying “no” to your own stall tactics and saying “later” to your own excuses, all while giving you three tips to actually start your side hustle.

Zakia Blain, the CEO and Founder of FBF Body is in the Side Hustle Pro podcast guest chair today for an update episode! Zakia is the master of the pivot. 

Her company started with a fitness challenge, and when her doctors told her that she couldn’t work out anymore due to an illness, she pivoted into shapewear. 

Then, when the pandemic hit and people were not going outside and didn’t need as much shapewear, FBF Body pivoted into athleisure apparel.

FBF Body’s highly sought after shapewear and fitness apparel has taken on a cult following of its own, largely in part due to Zakia’s open and honest method of sharing herself actually wearing it and looking amazing while doing so.

On this episode, Zakia shares:

  • How she builds anticipation for her products
  • How she manages and plans out her inventory seasons in advance
  • Her monthly drop technique for new items and so much more

Today in the guest chair is Jerri Evans, the Owner of Turning Natural Juice Bars. Jerri was first on the show in 2017 and now she’s back with an update!

As the Owner of Turning Natural Juice Bars, Jerri Evans has revolutionized juicing in the “hood”.  By bringing better choices to communities that otherwise lack access to healthy options, Jerri dedicated her mission to serving the often under-served and overlooked.  

It was Evans’ late mother Annette Turner, who founded Turning Natural, after being diagnosed with Stage II Breast Cancer. Shortly after her mother’s transition, Evans quit her then excelling career as an Aeronautical Engineer to pursue helping those who were looking to take care of themselves.  

Eight years and six locations later, Jerri has committed to continuing her mom’s legacy and trailblazing her own. 

On this episode, hear how Jerri:

  • Thinks about how and when to expand to a new location
  • Addressed her shortcomings as a manager to make her team stronger
  • Navigates “graduating” from a business she founded and having an exit strategy!

I’m celebrating the 5 Year Anniversary of Side Hustle Pro all this month with video interviews with some of my favorite guests of all time! (So you can listen to this episode on your favorite podcast app or watch on the Side Hustle Pro YouTube Channel)

Today in the guest chair, we have Kim Lewis, the CEO and co-founder of CurlMix, a clean beauty brand for curly hair. After a strong showing on Season 10 of ABC’s Emmy Award-winning Shark Tank with her husband and co-founder, Tim, Kim made the daring decision to bet on herself, and turned down a $400,000 Shark deal. 

Less than six months later, Kim’s talent for logistics and marketing secured a seed investment of $1.2M. CurlMix’s sales catapulted to $6M in annual revenue and they have earned over $13M in lifetime sales – all online. 

On this episode, hear how CurlMix:

  • Went from a DIY box for curly hair to launching their own products
  • Empowers, educates, and grows their community and customers with weekly Facebook lives
  • Turned down an offer on Shark Tank
  • Started their Equity Crowdfunding campaign
