Pay to Play - Black Women on Knowing Their Worth in Business

Listen as members of my tribe talk about their side hustles, what they do when people want the hook up and when they began to put a price on what they offer clients in business.

It is a great discussion with Maureen, Amber and Ginain. Find out how people reacted when things they once did for free they were now charging for, why they struggled with calling themselves an expert, and how they handle it when in business, clients don't want to pay the price they are quoted.

And here is a great quote from Amber: "The only person you should try to compete with is the person you were yesterday."

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
