Episode 061: Setting Your Own Agenda with Rhonesha Byng
In today’s episode, we meet Rhonesha Byng. Rhonesha is the founder and CEO of Her Agenda. A digital media platform that tells the stories of professionally ambitious millennial women of color. In 2017, Rhonesha was honored on the Forbes 30 under 30 list and before transitioning to run Her Agenda fulltime, she also received an Emmy award for her work as a journalist.
While a platform like Her Agenda is a great way to expose women to the possibilities of a career in different industries, its greatest selling points take place behind the scenes especially with its forums where women of color can access the hidden job market.
During our conversation, Rhonesha takes us on her journey to building Her Agenda into the media powerhouse it is today. It took Rhonesha 8 years to build Her Agenda into a standalone and profitable business. Next time you start to feel like you should be further along with your side hustle or business, I want you to come back to Rhonesha’s story because she is a testament to the fact that good things come to those who persist!
