b&b123 #DeadDayJobArmy TastyKeish on being a 1st Gen immigrant and creative entrepreneur
This is it, y’all.
Welcome to the Dead Day Job Army, a monthly Brunch & Budget series where entrepreneurs and freelancers of Color share their stories and talk about the real. We ask folks to leave their shiny pictures and instagram highlights at the door and tell us what it’s really like to do the work, put in the time, and devote your life to your work.
It’s not easy to start your own business and it’s even harder when it feels like you have to explain to your family what you do every time you see them, when you walk into an event and can count on one hand the PoC in the room, when you try to ask for what you’re worth, but don’t want to get passed over for the next person.
TastyKeish, founder of Bondfire Radio, morning show host of TK in the AM, speaker, host, MC, all around renaissance woman, joins us for the very first show of the series, which we recorded live at the 3rd annual Bondfire Radio audio festival.
We talk about how the very lonely road of being a 1st generation immigrant child with zero generational wealth doing work that no one “gets.” TK holds nothing back in this interview.
