I'm thrilled to welcome Emma Cortes (@emmasedition) to the podcast today! After being laid off from her job in the aerospace industry last year, she became a full-time blogger and course creator. In the first half of 2021, she's already secured $100,000+ in brand partnerships. We talk about how she decided to pursue full-time blogging, why influencing is definitely a "real job," why she thinks it's important for women of color to be open about how much we're making, and more.
