    From side hustle to dressing Beyonce with Ade Hassan Ep.18

    What if starting a business could open doors and opportunities beyond your wildest dreams?  If you think that it’s too good to be true then I’d love to introduce you to today’s guest.
    We talk about how to validate your idea and fund your side hustle, the behind the scenes of going viral, celebrating the small wins and competing with massive retailers as a small business.
    Frustrated by the lack of skin-tone options for women of colour, Nubian Skin founder and our guest for today, Ade Hassan MBE, decided it was time for ‘A Different Kind of Nude’.
    Ever since, Nubian Skin has had an outsized influence on the fashion industry, being featured in every major fashion publication, supplying the wardrobes of major productions in Hollywood, the West End and on Broadway; and being selected to provide the underpinnings for the Beyoncé Formation Tour along with many other parts of the industry realising the need to be more inclusive.

    How to use AI to your advantage Ep.17

    In this episode of Daring Forward, we’re diving into the world of AI and its impact on the online business space.
    Are you feeling worried about the rise of AI and its potential to replace our jobs? You're not alone. But today, I want to tackle these fears head on and take a look at the exciting opportunities AI can bring to the table.
    As entrepreneurs, it's important to stay ahead of the curve and embrace new technologies. So I've *reluctantly* taken the leap and delved into the AI world to share what I’ve learned so far.
    Join me as we explore the questions > is AI as scary as it seems? And can we use it to our advantage as small business owners and female entrepreneurs? Let’s talk.
