You likely need a copywriter and content marketer or learn to do it yourself because content is king. You will also need the secrets to create effective web content, combining those skills with a passion for whatever products and services you offer. This is where Barbara Hales can help and she's on this week's Side Hustle City Podcast to explain.Back in the 1970s, there was still a quota on the number of women admitted to medical school- a drastic difference from the way it is now. It was in a mostly male setting with discrimination against women in the workforce.After earning a medical degree at Rosalind Franklin Chicago Medical School and training at Kings County Hospital, Brooklyn, New York, she started her private practice in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Barbara was idealistic and hopeful that she could help others but the office was empty and no one knew she was there. So that the community would know that she opened her doors, she joined the Chamber of Commerce. With their permission, Barbara took out a large center ad in the local paper, which merely stated, “The Chamber of Commerce welcomes its newest member” with the services and address. The office phone rang off the hook the next day…lucky for her!As a thought leader who sees solutions to problems that people are struggling with, she received both an American and international patent for a nursing bib enabling moms to breastfeed privately while in public places. She founded The Medical Strategist, which has been providing results-oriented online copy since 2009.Support the show (

We are thrilled to have such a successful serial entrepreneur on our show to share her experience and knowledge with our listeners. My introduction wouldn't do her justice so in her own words I'll let Bianca explain her background.Hi! My name is Bianca Rush and I am a digital marketing strategist that teaches female entrepreneurs proven marketing strategies that increase their sales. I’ve built six-figure and 7-figure businesses for myself (Sassy Mitchell Hair, Sassy Hair Cap, Ladies Who Brunch: Atlanta), but moreover than that I've connected thousands of women to resources that help them enhance their visibility, build their list, and generate consistent revenue in their business. My main mission is to help women build an organic community of supporters and teach other entrepreneurs how to use the digital space, backed with the right strategy to generate revenue in their business. I have been featured in publications like XoNecole, Blavity, 21Ninety, ESSENCE, and Black Enterprise and have partnered with major brands such as: Bank of America, Macy's, WeWork, Grey Goose, PUMA, Glossier, Nissan, Mielle Organics to name a few for brand awareness campaigns. As a corporate drop-out turned educator, I believe it’s not poor ideas that make businesses fail, yet it’s a poor structure to the marketing strategy to enhance visibility and worthiness of the business. My goal is to help hundreds of women transcend the idea of a “traditional" career path by developing an actionable social and marketing strategy plan that helps them grow a business that they love with clarity, confidence, and consistency. When I am not working, I can be found spending quality time with my family, watching the latest film in theaters, and hosting gatherings with friends.Check out Bianca's consulting practice here: https://www.morethan.socialSupport the show (
Retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Jay Jackson joins us to discuss his side hustle. Jay struggled with finding purpose while in law school and decided to join the military. Now as an attorney, who works on affordable housing issues, he continues to see opportunities to help this country by writing a book that tackles social and political issues that tear us apart as Americans. The book will launch soon but in the meantime, you can sign up for his newsletter and follow his blog.In his own words:One Saturday morning in March 2020 I sat down to write.  I’ve continued that writing a lot of mornings, nights, and weekends since that day.  And now (oops)—it kind of adds up to a whole book.  It’s called Decent Discourse, and we’ll launch it this Spring. Decent Discourse comes in response to the toxic political rhetoric we see around us.  Our political conversation has turned war-like. Families and friendships are being torn apart.  More Americans than ever feel violence is justified to advance their political goals.  And the media is turbocharging this toxic, hyperpartisan political rhetoric.But can I tell you something?  We can fix it.  You can fix it.  One conversation at a time.  One relationship at a time. One community at a time. I think we can fix it because our country has overcome immense challenges before – slavery, wars, McCarthyism, Jim Crow, xenophobic hysteria, economic depressions, and more. Decent discourse is the common thread running through the solutions to these past tragedies: truth, humility, compassion, and open-mindedness. In other words, loving your neighbor (even if they might be wrong). Using historical case studies to provide a hope-filled perspective, Decent Discourse explores how we can save our country from the negative discourse taking place at our dinner tables, in our communities, and on social media. In October 1940, with Hitler on the march in Europe and Japan’s empire spreading throughout the Pacific, Franklin D. Roosevelt observed that “Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.” If you believe that kindness and toughness are not mutually exclusive and you want to put those principles to work for our nation and “the fiber of a free people,” you’re really going to like this book.Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!
