What advice do you have for people who want to take a different kind of career path?
Tolani: Honestly, you just have to come at life and just do it. It is scary, I always think it's important to add logic to your actions so before when I went freelance, I made sure I had saved a lot of money. Sometimes we can talk like ‘the sky’s the limit’ and it's all airy fairy but bills have to be paid and money has to be made.
Milena: You have to remember as well it is going to be hard work, you’ve got to be consistent and it’s not going to be an overnight success. I mean, it might be and that’s great for you if it is but if it isn’t don’t be disheartened and just carry on. Save up that money so you know you have that back up plan and freedom so you’re not thinking about other things when chasing your dreams.
Audrey: I think it's really nice when you’re able to turn your hobby into a career. I never thought I’d be making money off the podcast, it was always supposed to be my side hustle. I’ve always had a 9-5 and something on the side to fulfil my passion. You should research ways you can make money with your passion too, because there are so many different avenues we are making money from the podcast now.
Tolani: I know it sounds like we’re talking about money a lot but for me and for us, it’s a purposeful thing because a lot of times women are not allowed to say they want to earn money or make money out of their hobbies. So, I do think it is important for women to bravely say ‘yes I want to do something that earns money’.
