Girlboss’ side hustler newsletter, “One the Side” featured my 9-5 and 5-9 work in DEI as a Fractional Chief Diversity Officer. I also shared my story about how and why I launched Hello Ambi. Here’s a snippet of some advice I shared for over-timers and five-to-niners:
“Always share your truth. There may be other entrepreneurs who are doing what you do full-time. Because of this, their situation is going to be different than yours and they are going to be able to show up differently than you, and that’s okay. Remember that leisure is your right. Don’t feel guilty for taking necessary breaks as a side hustler and be kind to yourself.”
In case you don’t know, Girlboss is a media company founded by Sophia Amoruso. Sophia Amoruso’s best-selling autobiography, #GIRLBOSS was adapted into a television series by Netflix, and Amoruso launched the GIRLBOSS Foundation to inspire women to take their careers into their own hands. It now has a wildly successful Podcast and daily newsletter and “On the Side” is its newly launched weekly newsletter.
