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!

This week I chat with Monique Little, CEO & Founder of You Go Natural, one of the nation’s fastest growing natural hair accessory brands. Little founded the company to address the need for easy styling options for women who opt to wear their hair in its natural state. Having started with just a sewing machine, some remnant fabric from her mother’s stash and an idea, in just five years Little has successfully grown a multimillion dollar brand.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How wanting more freedom in her schedule led to the start of You Go Natural 
  • How she got her product to grow in the first six months to a point where she was making more than her full time job’s salary
  • How she went from working with contractors to opening up a facility and hiring full time employee
  • When she decided to raise capital and how she had to explain the black women’s beauty experience to people who didn’t understand the need for her product
  • Her marketing strategy for scaling the business, when she knew it was time to bring in an external team, & how being in your own target market helps with knowing what to say to your audience + much more!

After unsuccessfully trying to convince other people to launch this business, Ericka and her brother finally realized it was up to them to solve this problem.

In this episode we discuss:

This week in the guest chair we have Ashley Reynolds, Founder of Cloth & Paper.

Established in 2015, Cloth & Paper was birthed from necessity! Ashley left her corporate finance job of 9 years and needed to devise a plan on what her next career move would be, while fulfilling her dream of being an entrepreneur. While on the hunt for a new planner, she noticed that there weren't any on the market that quite fit her minimal aesthetic or needs. It was at that point her journey down the paper trail began.

She then spent endless hours and days designing planner inserts from scratch with no previous background or education in graphic design. Shortly after, a stationery business blossomed and the line grew to offer leather planners, luxury pens, and more quintessential styles. She ran C&P alone for the first year and a half, testing her true abilities as an entrepreneur. Today, she is still head designer, AKA mastermind, behind it all, growing Cloth & Paper into a brand with over 40 employees, 100K Instagram followers, and thousands of passionate customers.

 In this episode she shares:

  • What inspired her to start Cloth & Paper
  • How she created her first planner insert on Microsoft Word!
  • How her organic approach to marketing supported the growth of her business & so much more!

This week in the guest chair we have Shirley Ansley. In 2015, Shirley went on a journey to start a business and tried to DIY her website only to find out that making your own website is kind of hard. She became instantly obsessed with figuring out how to build a website the right way and along the way found herself starting a business as a freelance website designer.

She ran her business on the side while still working a full time job for almost two years until finally taking the leap. She left her 9 to 5 while three months pregnant with her second child a few months before the pandemic hit.

Today, she is a successful (and profitable) freelance website designer who’s had the privilege of working with award winning podcasts, POC women-led businesses, national organizations and more. 

In today’s episode we get into:

  • The strategy she used to transition from her job while still growing her side hustle
  • How she worked on and improved her technical design knowledge so she could shift from charging $675 for a website to now charging $5000-$10000
  • And so much more!

This week in the guest chair we have Desiree Verdejo, founder of Hyper Skin. As a Black woman with acne-prone skin that’s subject to dark spots and hyperpigmentation, Desiree never saw people who looked like her in the skincare space. That’s why she set out to create a simple, results-oriented, multicultural skincare brand that celebrates and offers products for everyone’s skin in its various stages.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What moved Desiree to create Hyper Skin
  • How running her beauty boutique led her to realize what concerns her customers had with their skin, therefore creating Hyper Skin
  • How she was able to partner with Sephora to get Hyper Skin in stores
  • What was her marketing process when she launched her product & the strategy behind focusing on only one product
  • The supply chain issues that come with being self funded and having a partnership like Sephora + much more..

This week we have a rewind episode of the update episode with Teri Ijeoma! One of my goals this year is to dive into Teri’s Trade & Travel course & start trading as a side hustle. And I’m kicking it off by joining her Your First Trade Challenge. Check it out here: http://sidehustlepro.co/firsttrade

Teri Ijeoma began her professional career working in education and nonprofits. When she started trading stocks eleven years ago, she initially saw it as an opportunity to simply supplement her income. However, she was so successful with this side hustle that in 2017, she decided to quit her job, travel the world, and begin trading full-time. While traveling, Teri was constantly asked to show others how she was successfully trading in the stock market. She set up and taught her first class in Thailand, her second in Vietnam, and had a fully-fledged curriculum created by the time she returned to the States. Teri now offers an online curriculum that shares her investing strategies with people all over the world. She also partners with organizations and companies to train and empower individuals to achieve financial freedom and build wealth through investing.

In this episode, Teri shares advice on how to finally get started with her course, how to work on your mindset for trading and gives some tips on how to reach your income goals with trading.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Her preferred trading method and what is the difference (going long vs short selling)
  • How to actually get started with Teri’s trading course & trading in general + what causes us to delay getting started
  • Can you really trade stocks as a side hustle to earn an extra income
  • Paper trading and its benefits
  • How to set concrete goals in trading

This week in the guest chair we have self described dreamer and doer Lola Banjo, the Founder, Creative Director and Designer of Silver & Riley, a premier luxury travel and fashion leather goods brand made exquisitely in Italy. Lola launched Silver & Riley in October 2019 with one main goal—creating stylish, functional and luxurious pieces that do not break the bank, yet make you look and feel like a million bucks. This Black-owned and Black-woman owned luxury handbag line is making waves. And it took years to get here.

 In this episode we discuss:

  • What inspired Silver & Riley and why it took her 10 years to finally launch her business
  • The painful lesson that cost her $20,000 due to a shady manufacturer
  • The response she received once she launched in October 2019 and what happened once the pandemic hit!
  • & so much more!
