Episode 058: Visible Side Hustles with Dominique Fluker

Episode 058: Visible Side Hustles with Dominique Fluker

Jan 30, 2020


In today’s episode, we meet Dominique Fluker. About a year ago, I started seeing Forbes articles with her byline.  Her articles covered some amazing milennial women of color and I started following her. Dominique is a true example of someone who is grinding with purpose!

She signed her contract as a contributor with Forbes in January of 2018 and by August, she had already been promoted to Senior Contributor. Most recently, she has interviewed the likes of Serena Williams, Taraji P. Henson, and Elaine Welteroth to name a few. What I love most about Dominique is that Forbes is her SIDE HUSTLE!

During our conversation, we talked about how she balances her day job with her side hustle, how aspiring writers can approach editors as well as how business owners and brands can get featured by media outlets like Forbes.

Go off script with us as Dominique shares how she balances her highly visible side hustles with Forbes, Essence and Mayvenn Hair.
