A Word From The Founder
Hi I’m Necole!
Most known for my rise to Internet stardom in 2008 after launching the celebrity gossip blog NecoleBitchie.com. And also most known for walking away from that same blog at the height of its success in 2015, to launch a women’s lifestyle and empowerment brand.
Throughout the bulk of my career as a blogger, I’ve been covered in many magazines, won numerous awards, and even name-dropped in songs by some of my favorite rappers. I’ve had dinner with the Kardashians, had the opportunity to fly around the world as part of the 777 tour with Rihanna, and rubbed shoulders with industry legends like Diddy, Floyd Mayweather, and even my idol Oprah! I’ve also been invited to the White House (when they were letting folks that look like me swag surf on the lawn.)
I know what it’s like to live the life of your dreams! (or what I thought…)
I’ve seen some really high moments in my career, but I’ve also been through some incredibly low moments!
I know what it’s like to feel really rich and to be really broke.
I know what it’s like to go from sleeping on couches, to first-class flights and 5-star hotel rooms, back to almost sleeping on couches again.
I know what it’s like to be surrounded by a lot of people, and feel really alone.
I know what it’s like to be well-known, but not really know yourself.
I know what it’s like to succeed, and I know what it’s like to feel as though you’ve failed.
I’ve learned a lot of life lessons, and I could either put them in a book… or I could put them in a newsletter.
For now, I’m putting them in a newsletter.
Hello Necole was launched out of a place of unfulfillment. As I transitioned out of my life as a blogger into a full-fledged entrepreneur, and eventually head of a media empire, at some point, I felt like it was time for me to step from behind the scenes again and let my voice be heard.
Heros write their own stories.
The Hello Necole newsletter was launched out of a need to reclaim my voice online and to take ownership of my narrative as an entrepreneur.
Although there are parts of my life that were very glamourous, there were also parts of my life that I’m not so proud of but they make for the best lessons. I want to use this space to share the highs and lows, as well as the personal transformation I had to go through to become the woman I am today.
I’ve made a promise to myself for 2021 and I’m making one to you. I owe you 52 weeks of blogging. That means at least 1 post a week for the entire year. I want you to hold me to that, okay?
Let’s do this!
Subscribe to get my posts straight to your inbox!
What To Expect
You’ll get a few stories from my blogging heyday, some life lessons, some productivity hacks, wellness tips, and a whole lot of insight on the highs and lows of running a media brand.
Just a fair warning, really personal posts will be for premium subscribers only just to keep my business in the family. Feel me?
Every now and then, I’ll drop a podcast/audio blog or interview with some of my favorite people who are currently living their dreams after taking a huge bet on themselves, but the goal here is to give the people what they want without overthinking it too much (because the way my perfectionism is set up…)
My goal for this is to build consistency, have freedom over how I tell my story, and to build community. So if you read something that you like, don’t forget to comment, like, and share :)
You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
See you in these Internet Streets…
