Today I’m back with a solo episode, sharing my tips for batching content writing and scheduling. 

I realize that a lot of us get overwhelmed when it’s time to create content.

So here’s my quick and easy process for staying organized when my mind and life is going a mile a minute.

In this episode, I reveal what my batch process looks like (aka, exactly what I assign as my priority task for each day of my week)

And how I find an “hour of power” for batch creating and scheduling content on social media each week.

I hope it’s helpful! Listen and gimme a 💙 on Instagram if it is. 💪🏾

Today in the guest chair is Jasmin Foster, the Founder of Be Rooted, an inclusively designed stationery brand created to celebrate and uplift women of color. 

What I really love about Jasmin and her experience is that she started her career in retail on the buying side. And now here she is, a Founder who has landed as a product and business owner on the shelves of Target, the very company she started her career with!

In today’s episode, I love what Jasmin had to share about:

  • How the majority of her career in retail was pushing the boundaries of representation and inclusion 
  • How that led her to changing the face of the stationery industry with Be Rooted
  • What it’s like to employ her parents!

Today in the guest chair is Alicia Scott, the Founder of Range Beauty.

Fun Fact: I first met Alicia Scott, today’s Side Hustle Pro guest, in 2019 when I was a speaker at the Summit 21 conference. I invited the audience to raise their hand to come up on stage and share their side hustle with the audience. Like a true hustler, Alicia was READY and was the first hand that shot up (scroll through to see the pic of her on stage).

Fast forward 2 years and I am not the least bit surprised to see the AMAZING growth of Alicia’s brand, Range Beauty.

Alicia founded Range Beauty because she noticed the lack of shades available during photo shoots and runway shows. Instead of asking, “Why can’t there be better options for us?,” she created what she envisioned, a clean beauty brand for the forgotten shades.

In today’s episode, she gets into:

  • How she went about figuring out where to find a manufacturer
  • How she figured out how to create these actual products
  • How she is kicking down doors and raising capital for her business

I know you’re probably wondering, how’s Nicaila TV going, right?! If you didn’t know, I have a YouTube channel where I post videos about natural hair, lifestyle, and beauty content. I’m already one month in, and I wanted to give you all a little update on how things are going since my channel launched on March 1.

For the first time in a while, I gave myself the freedom to do something fun, again, and didn’t put pressure on myself with creating videos (or even to monetize). This was the start of expanding what I’m known for beyond podcasting, and I actually love doing YouTube! It’s my TV show, and anything goes.

This side hustle has also given me insight into what I see myself doing in the future (more on that in the episode).

In this episode, I’m sharing all that I’ve learned in a short amount of time of doing YouTube, and giving you insight into why I think it’s way harder than podcasting, and how I’ve gotten videos with over 1K views!
