167: How Rochelle Porter Launched Her Apparel and Lifestyle Brand While Working Full-Time
Today in the guest chair, we have Rochelle Porter, also known as the “Print Queen.” She is a designer who has never met a blank surface she didn’t want to draw on. But, she nearly abandoned the idea of being a designer when she learned of the unethical labors practice in the fast fashion industry. After learning this, she pursued a career in a variety of industries including investment banking and communications.  At her lowest moment, she found an eviction notice on the door. It was at that moment she knew something had to change, so she made the move back to Atlanta.  Slowly but surely, clues that she should look into fashion again started coming into her life and she took them as a sign to get moving.  She did her research and launched her lifestyle brand that specializes in responsibly made fashion and home decor all while holding down steady consulting gigs.

166:  How Charis Jones Crossed the $2 Million Mark With Sassy Jones Boutique
This week we have a bonus episode with Charis Jones, owner of Sassy Jones Boutique in the guest chair! Sassy Jones is an award-winning accessory brand that specializes in exquisite pieces for the ‘sassy sophisticated girl on the go. Sassy Jones has both a brick-and-mortar store located in Richmond, Virginia and an online store and thousands of customers all over the world tune in weekly every Wednesday night to shop during their “Sparkle Parties.” I’ve been fascinated by how Charis grew her boutique into a 7-figure business, so I had to have her in the guest chair. If you have an e-commerce business and are experiencing stagnant growth, this is the episode for you! On today’s episode, we talk about: How Charis was first called to side hustling and entrepreneurship after she kept getting laid off How she uses her background as a top-ranking sales professional in major corporations to inform her sales and customer service strategy How being a Mom of 4-year old twin boys kicked her hustle into overdrive Her approach to paid marketing that helped her business grow from $365K in revenue to $2.6M the next year Her fun differentiation techniques including weekly virtual Sparkle parties online which bring in huge sales days and happy customers I learned a TON from Charis in this episode, including the mental shift I need to personally make to take my business to the next level.

165: How PhD, Gettin’ Grown Podcast Host, and Coach of #TeamTypingFast Dr. Tykeia Robinson Juggles it All (Side Hustle Spotlight)
This week, I chatted with Dr. Tykeia Robinson (also known as Keia). You may know her as co-host of the Gettin’ Grown Podcast, but she is also a PhD in Higher Education and multi-passionate side hustler with over 10 years of experience in higher education. She is also Head Coach of #TeamTypingFast, an online community of practice for anybody with work to do. I started getting to know Keia last year after attending the Gettin’ Grown live podcast show. Fun fact: she and co-host Jade are one of the BIGGEST inspirations for me doing my own live show.  One of the things I admire most about Keia is her commitment to supporting, encouraging, and uplifting Black women.  In addition to Gettin’ Grown and #TeamTypingFast, Keia’s full-time job involves doing research that informs curriculum, policy, and practice, and she develops training for school faculty leaders. In today’s episode, she shares how she juggles everything, and what she’s learning along the way.  Listen on Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, Stitcher   Links mentioned in this episode Side Hustle Pro Live Show Side Hustle Pro Newsletter Gettin' Grown Podcast Team Typing Fast  Canva  Your Next Level: 7 Rules of Power, Confidence, and Opportunity for Black Women in America by Karen Arrington  Click here to subscribe via RSS feed (non-iTunes feed): http://sidehustlepro.libsyn.com/rss Announcements Join our Facebook Community If you’re looking for a community of supportive side hustlers who are all working to take our businesses to the next level, join us here: http://sidehustlepro.co/facebook Attend Side Hustle Pro Live!
