All Things Melanin Turns 4!!
Where has the time gone? We can't believe that 4 years ago, we launched All Things Melanin. For everyone who has joined us on our journey, supported us, and really rocked with us - THANK YOU! From the bottom of our hearts, we genuinely love you and the support doesn't go unnoticed.
When we first launched All Things Melanin, we wanted to share our journey of navigating and creating the life we wanted for ourselves. We didn't see women of color being open, honest, and transparent about their journey or creating a life that didn't fit into society's norms. So instead of complaining, we launched a brand where we could share our viewpoints, pain points as well as the highs and lows of our life. All Things Melanin has been a labor of love for us. Every blog post, podcast, and guest feature has allowed us to pour into others, encourage people, and motivate them to get out and get it. All Things Melanin is a community where we want everyone to feel heard, seen, and empowered.
Being 4 years in the game, here are 5 things we've learned so far:
Everyone won't understand your vision
Whoever our message is supposed to reach and resonate with, it will
You don't have to be perfect, just be authentically yourself
Know how to pivot and adjust when needed
Rest and take breaks when your body tells you to
As we go into another year, we hope to continue to bring you authentic content, relatable podcasts and highlight more people's stories through our platform. We've learned so much over the past 4 years and we know there is still so much more to learn.
For anyone that has been sitting on their dreams and visions, no matter if it's a job, career switch, side hustle, or new brand idea - this is your confirmation to bet on yourself and go for it! Cheers to All Things Melanin turning 4!!
