Show Notes

Introducing a NEW segment! From Bustle to Boss highlights success stories of womxn of colour who have made the transition from employee to Entrepreneur.

Chances are you are feeling kind of over your 9to5, you have a great idea for a side hustle and it’s all you can think about while you count down the hours until you can log-off for the day.

While it can feel like your day job is holding you back, there is actually a lot you can take away from it while you grow your business.

In fact, Monique says that your employee mentality and attitude will affect your side hustle and the type of boss you are in your business - that’s why it is so important to shift your view of your job and work on seeing how you can leverage it instead.

If you want to learn more about how you can leverage your 9to5 to help you grow your business so you can happily leave, then you need to listen to today’s episode.

I had an amazing conversation with Monique about how she was able to learn and use her job as a jumping point into starting and growing a successful business.

We talk about everything from:

  • How watching the processes and marketing at her job helped her learn what she needed to do in her business
  • How she was able to use her former bosses as her biggest source of referrals for clients when she was starting out at her business
  • Why there is no perfect time to quit and some things you can do to make it easier and plan to leave
