Monique Rodriguez is putting her grassroots entrepreneurship knowledge to words in a new e-book titled Growing Your Business Through Social Media. The CEO and founder of natural hair products company Mielle Organics had recently launched her business mentoring arm.
I’ve heard of Mielle Organics but never used the products, but Monique stood out as a guest last week on Sisters Circle talk show on TV One. This introduced me to her newish podcast The Secret Sauce to Success where I listened to the first episode where she describes her desire to help others tap into their true talents and reach their goals.
The former registered nurse said she always loved beauty growing up, with even sending her photos for modeling, but her parents, especially her mother, pushed her to become a nurse to have a stable life. So that’s what Monique did even though she got married at a relatively young age and started her family before nursing school.
Her latest podcast episode features Arian Simone, a fellow entrepreneur who takes on the Hollywood TV and music media industry. There, Arian Simone speaks candidly about self-publishing her book, Fearless: Faith + Hustle: 21 Day Devotional Journey.
Now 35, Monique is expanding the multimillion-dollar brand she founded only five years ago. Thanks to social media, she went from making one product in her garage with her husband to many products being made in a warehouse with staff. If you’re interested in business and entrepreneurial guidance from a social media angle, then this may be the book for you.
