2 days ago
You may never have heard of Morgan DeBaun, but if you’re a black millennial you’ve probably heard of the brand she created: Blavity. Morgan and her co-founder have done an amazing job building a recognizable and influential brand in record time and she is Rosetta’s guest on this episode. You’ll hear her tell the Blavity story, describe how they came to be, and how they are leveraging their platform to build a brand that’s not only profitable, but also influential in the minds of those who follow it. It’s a great conversation between Rosetta and Morgan, on this episode of Happy Black Woman. It’s important to spend the time to build a brand that others will miss if it vanishes. For the entire first year that Blavity was in existence, Morgan DeBaun and her team were busy creating content and resources to make an impact on their following. They weren’t worried about making money or gaining influence, they just wanted to make an impact on those they were serving. Today Morgan says it was that focus that enabled the Blavity brand to stand out and be one that fans would miss if it were to go away. She says that’s the focus every entrepreneur should have and shares how she did it on this episode. Trust your gut and believe in yourself. That’s the best advice I can give. ~ Morgan DeBaun Every episode of Happy Black Woman includes Rosetta’s question to her guest about the best advice they could give someone who wants to build a brand or business of their own. On this episode, Morgan DeBaun says that her best advice is that upcoming entrepreneurs need to trust their gut and believe in themselves. There will be all kinds of reasons for why you can’t do what you want to do. It’s up to you to silence those voices and believe that you not only had the courage to envision what you’re doing but that you’ve also got what it takes to build it. It’s important to be yourself. That’s what creates the brand. ~ Morgan DeBaun It’s easy to think that you need to copy what other successful entrepreneurs are doing in order to be successful. While there is definitely something to be said for learning from those who have gone before you, it’s important to be who you really are. Morgan DeBaun says that YOU are the brand, so you can’t spend your time trying to be like somebody else. It’s YOU that will shape, influence, and maximize your brand so

Loved Loved Shayla!!!
I learned so much from Shayla's interview. She encouraged me to go for my dream of having a successful family and business right at the moment I planned to let one of them go. Thank you so much Rosetta. This was life-changing!
