Today’s episode is a REWIND with Sakita Holley, Founder, and CEO of House of Success PR.

Sakita started her own PR company when she was 23, but faced a number of financial struggles as she figured out her business model. She has since grown, scaled, and gone on to be featured Essence Magazine, Black Enterprise, Women’s Biz Journals, xoNecole, and was named as one of PRWeek’s 40 Under 40 honorees.  

Sakita breaks it down and gets real about how to start charging for your expertise and stop doing things for free. After listening to this episode, I want you to have the confidence to start making money from your side hustle and get rid of the intimidation and fear that can come with setting rates and charging people. 

Let’s get into it!

Today’s episode is a REWIND with Danielle Leslie, the Creator of  Course From Scratch, an 8-week online intensive that helps people create and launch their profitable online courses.

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

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. Danielle helped me launch my signature podcast accelerator program, Podcast Moguls

I’m excited for you to hear Danielle’s story and get some inspiration to launch your online course.

Today’s episode is a REWIND episode with Melissa Butler, Founder, and CEO of The Lip Bar.  

Melissa is a former Wall Street analyst turned Founder and CEO. She describes her move from stocks and bonds to beauty as a natural one, not because she loved makeup, but because she was frustrated with the beauty industry and ready to create a solution.

You might not know that Melissa first launched this vegan and cruelty-free product line from her very own kitchen. Now her products are available in Target stores and have been seen on Taraji P. Henson and Ashley Blaine Featherson. 

On today’s show, Melissa shares why she was passionate about disrupting the narrative on beauty and creating a line of cosmetics that are safe and affordable.

Today’s episode is a REWIND episode with Lisa Price, the Founder of multi-million dollar hair and beauty company Carol’s Daughter.

Why do I love this episode? Lisa came from a space of side hustling because she loved her full-time job. She was filled with creative and positive energy after work, so she used that to fuel her love for developing her own products.  

If you don’t know, Lisa Price and Carol’s Daughter has been in business for over two decades. In 1992, Lisa 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), and the rest is history!
