Everyone who is part of the Happy Black Woman tribe wants to find income opportunities. But it’s vital to find the RIGHT income opportunities that can sustain you and your business over the long haul. It’s not about product launches or communities on Facebook. It’s about strategic income, built deliberately. Today’s guest is Nicole Walters, an income strategist who helps entrepreneurs build the kind of income that lasts. You’re going to get a ton of great insights from what Nicole has to share on this episode, so be sure you listen.
Is a Facebook Group going to bring income into your company? Then why are you doing it?
One of the big things entrepreneurs are doing these days is creating and connecting with their tribe through Facebook communities. But what many don’t realize is that if you don’t find a way to monetize that community – to make an income opportunity out of it – you’re wasting time that could be used to truly move your business forward. On this episode of Happy Black Woman Rosetta chats with Nicole Walters about why a Facebook group may not be your best option and what you could do instead to make sure your business supports you over the long haul. It’s a portion of the conversation worth hearing, so be sure you listen.
Does your business have the systems to fuel income opportunities over the long haul?
It’s great to have a 6 figure product launch. But if you are setting up your business to depend on product launches of that magnitude you are setting yourself up for headaches. On this episode, Nicole Walters shares why she believes that you should aim at income opportunities that run on a more automatic basis and how you can do that in a way that allows you the freedom and space in your lifestyle that makes for a happier life. It’s all on this episode of Happy Black Woman.
You don’t have to go all-in. A side hustle can set you up for the full-time business you dream of.
One of the things Nicole Walters discovered as he worked full-time in the corporate world was that what she was doing in her 9 to 5 hours wasn’t feeding her soul. She wasn’t adding the value to the world she knew she could – so she started what she calls a “side hustle.” It was a passion project she enjoyed that she was able to monetize. That enabled her to pave the way for an exit from corporate and an eventual full-time business. On this episode, Nicole not only shares about her journey from corporate to entrepreneur but also tells how you can build a side hustle to forge a path toward freedom for yourself.
What works for busy moms who are trying to build a business?
Every mother in the HBW tribe knows the difficult balancing act it can be to work full-time, be a wife and mom, and work on income opportunities on the side. Rosetta’s guest on this episode, Nicole Walters, says that balance is a myth when it comes to those things. Her advice is to give yourself some grace and know that the road is going to be full of potholes – times when you can’t get it all done. But it’s O.K. You will get where you are going if you remain persistent and consistent. Find out more on this episode.
