In Episode 129 of The Legal Paige Podcast, I sat down with beauty biz strategist, Tiyana Robinson, to uncover the legal woes in the solopreneur beauty industry + draw upon her entrepreneurial expertise. (Spoiler alert: She is a treasure trove of amazing advice!)
Many beauty professionals come from a traditional cosmetology school background or are self-taught artists that turned their passion into a lucrative side hustle. As every creative entrepreneur knows, sometimes the BUSINESS side of running a business is overwhelming and Tiyana does such a great job of simplifying what it takes to run a freelance beauty business “like a mogul”.

She has been featured in Black Enterprise, Entrepreneur.com, Essence Magazine, and in 2020 she was included in The Root’s “Glow-Up 50”- an annual celebration of the black tastemakers, trendsetters, and innovators elevating the world of style- in the same category as Rihanna (yup, she’s pretty cool).
