Today I bring you the first ever guest post from my friend, Shynieka Taylor, the CEO of MadTalkin Network. We had the pleasure of working together and competing at the Miss Black USA 2016 pageant. Since then, I have seen her level up with her personal acting career and professional endeavor in creating MadTalkin. I’m proud to say that she and her business partners have recently incorporated their company! Read on for her advice and a snippet of her journey as an entrepreneur.
My hustle is an on-air personality and the CEO of Madtalkin Network. The idea came about because ever since I first watched Oprah, I knew I wanted to have my own talk show. There is not enough black positive representation within media and I knew I could fulfill that role. Being a host is a gift I believe God gave me naturally. You have to be energetic, engaging, fearless, charismatic, understanding, and ultimately confident when you control a room or an atmosphere, and nothing gives me more thrill than to connect with others through this avenue.
