Episode 029: Setting Goals and Taking Action {Monique Malcolm}

Monique Malcolm is the host of the Pimp Your Brilliance podcast and creator of the Visionary Journal, a goal setting system & planner. We talk about how she went from fashion blogger to t-shirt designer to goal setting guru. Monique walks us through the process of taking a physical product from idea to first iteration to manufactured product. She shares the importance of connecting with her email list and Facebook contacts to use Kickstarter to pre-sell her product, and how she’s used Pinterest to drive traffic to her website. We also talk about setting goals and creating systems for productivity and time management, plus Monique shares how she got Issa Rae to feature her t-shirt line on Awkward Black Girl on YouTube years before Issa got famous.
