"Every day of your life is a special occasion." ~Thomas S. Monson

In a word, this week was LONGGGGG…I had the Talent Showcase for my job seekers smack dab in the middle. Trying to get RSVPs this time was tough but all in all, we had a great turnout, employers were happy and really impressed with our grads. So I celebrated afterwards with a dirty martini 🍸and an hour of Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour on Netflix.
In other cool, exciting news, I am one of 200 featured Black Women in Tech to follow on Twitter! 🙌🏾 It is such an honor to be included and also to see the other women on this list doing incredible things.
As I start thinking about my blog planning for the year, I could use your help… What goal(s) do you want to accomplish with your side hustle this year? Start it? Make money at it? Get better at managing the day to day? Hit reply and let me know so I can plan content that will help you accomplish those goals.
On to the picks!

Is creating a course on your 2019 list?
If you have an online course, or are thinking about creating one this year, I have some great news.
Next week, starting Monday, January 14th, my friends at Teachable are hosting a FREE 4-part masterclass, The Full-time Creator Masterclass, which will show you how to earn a full-time living by creating your own online course.
I created my Affiliate Starter Guide course on Teachable last year and it was super easy to get it set up and launched. It’s also a nice perk to be at work and get a notification that someone has bought my course and I’ve had positive feedback about it so far. Passive income for the win! 🙌🏾
The masterclass includes four on-demand videos, which’ll be released over the course of next week. It’ll cover:
  • Business models you can use as an “online creator”
  • Behind-the-scenes examples of course creators who’ve had tiny audiences and have been able to make money
  • The “6 stepping stones” you need to make a full-time income from your course (hint: you start with a free course)
  • How to use Teachable’s tool to grow your business
Click here to get free access to the masterclass and the Full-time Creator Checklist that goes with it.
Everything starts Monday, January 14th. You don’t need to watch the sessions live - you can catch them in the evenings after work if you need to. They’re quick videos — about 15 minutes each — and you’ll walk away with actionable insights you can apply right away.
General Assembly (yep, also my day job 🙌🏾) is putting on a week of free and paid events starting on 1/28 designed to take your career to the next level. There is also a Side Hustle panel where I’ll be speaking! 🙌🏾 I decided to partner with them on this camp because I participated last year and it was a great week of events. As a subscriber, you can get 30% off the paid events with this code: techbiz2019careercamp
