Shay Duriel of The Bronze Hustle didn’t set out to become an entrepreneur. After graduating from college, she got a job and set out on the path to climb the corporate ladder.

Eventually, she started a blog, where she wrote about content marketing and other business related matters she’s learned over the years.

Today, The Bronze Hustle educates black millennial women on standing out online and creating influential brands through online entrepreneurship and content marketing.

In this podcast episode, Shay talks about how taking a traditional career path, led her to entrepreneurship. We talk about how challenging being a leader can be. We also discuss why you need to take action instead of only consuming content.

“When you really get started you just have to hone in on what you want to get done, how to do it, and how to make it work.” - Shay Duriel Click To Tweet
