Welcome to the official Instagram of Lifetime TV.
Our favorite side hustles are from women who make our lives EASIER. (Yes please, more please.) That’s why we’re loving @Weespring, founded by @AllysonDowney, who, like us, was overwhelmed by all the products out there for kids. She’s collected unfiltered, no BS reviews for pretty much everything you’ll ever need for Lil Chanel and Baby Dolce. #TheHustleisReal #SideHustleSundays
OK, so you’ve had your kiddos and now you’re itching to get back to work. Not so easy is it? All hail Jenny Galluzzo and Gina Hadley, founders of @TheSecond_Shift, a site that pairs talented moms (LIKE YOU) with gigs they’re qualified for. Women supporting women? Mamas helping mamas? ✋🏽✋🏽🖐🏾#SideHustleSunday
First week of school is one and done. (PRAISE BE.) Are you already feeling stuck in the same lunch routine? Check out @LauraSFuentes, mom of 3 and founder of @momables, for fun, fresh recipe ideas designed to keep your kids from calling Dominos while you’re not looking. The first 15 to comment below win one of Laura’s NEW KICKASS COOKBOOKS—a present for all you side hustlers! 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽#SideHustleSunday
Ever dream of saying to hell with it all and channeling your inner Willy Wonka? Erika Henik is a dreamer of dreams! She learned to make chocolates while working her way through college (what college and how do we apply?). Fast forward two kids and two careers later, this boss lady has returned to her first love, running Sweet On Vermont, a local fave for their “Peanut Butter Pigouts” and “Cow Crunch”. And yes, she ships across the country. Because no one should ever be without cow crunch.
When @nataliapetrzela landed a "real job" as a history professor at New York City’s New School, her friends and family assumed she'd abandon her "hobby" as a fitness instructor of Intensati, a fast-moving blend of yoga and cardio. But Natalia’s schooling everybody about stereotypes. “Teaching Intensati only makes me more alive in the classroom and vice versa—not to mention a better mother, wife, citizen, and human!” Check out Natalia’s podcast, @pastpresentpod at www.nataliapetrzela.com. Get it, girl! #SideHustleSunday
Nobody’s spilling more tea on your favorite stars than THIS QUEEN. Angie Nwandu was unemployed when she launched @TheShadeRoom on Instagram in 2013. It has quickly become the hottest celeb gossip outpost on the planet, with 12 million “roommates” 🙋🏽🙋🏾🙋🏿 across all platforms. Just 27 and she’s presiding over a media empire, with more followers on Instagram than CNN, Fox and MSNBC *combined*. The hustle is real. #SideHustleSunday
Give it up to country superstar @MirandaLambert, whose side hustle is giving us all the feels. The Texas native is also cofounder of @MuttNation, stray rescue group that has moved at least 70 dogs displaced by #HurricaneHarvey to safe, dry shelters. Who doesn’t love a homegrown hero who remembers her roots and pays it forward? You can support Miranda’s work by donating to MuttNation.com, or other worthy local organizations including The Texas Diaper Bank, @Carterbloodcare, and the @spcatexas. #SideHustleSunday #HurricaneHarvey #HoustonHeroes
Rhonesha Byng, the ULTIMATE side hustler, started @HerAgenda in 2008 while in college. The goal: figure out what made powerful women tick so she and her friends could learn from it. Today, Her Agenda is an award winning digital platform that celebrates a woman’s ambition and decodes success. Want to get ahead? Consider Her Agenda your no-fail, career how-to guide. Because as Rhonesha likes to say, “No one ever slows her agenda.” PREACH. #HerAgenda
It’s back to school, which means back to CRAZY. Girl, we got you. And so does, Yunha Kim, founder of Simple Habit, an app that guides you through **fast** (and super effective) meditations perfect for your commute, in the dropoff/pickup lane, or wherever. Meditation is proven to reduce anxiety, improve your immune system, and put you in a better mood. In other words, it’s the fuel to help you CONQUER THE WORLD. #sidehustlesunday
TRUTH TIME: When’s the last time you went for a proper bra fitting? (Um…never?!) That’s why we’re all about True & Co. lingerie—visit the site, take a short quiz, and get fitted for a bra that fits just right. (FINALLY!) 👏to founder Michelle Lim, who’s made it possible to support your girls with a click of the button. #SideHustleSunday #SupportYourGirls
Why do women have more side hustles than men? Because side hustles mean FREEDOM to pursue your passions, INDEPENDENCE from a 9 to 5, and the POWER to make things work better. That’s why Brooklyn-based Katherine Ryder launched Maven (@mavenclinic), which lets women talk directly to doctors, nurses and therapists instantly over video, call, and text. Because a busy woman like you doesn’t have time to kill in a waiting room—not when you could be conquering the world. #SideHustleSunday
Lifetime salutes all you badasses turning your side hustles into empires! Sisters Julia Schmid and Joan Pacetti began sharing their insane cookie dough concoctions to friends and family in 2012. To nobody’s surprise, the desserts took off and grew into an online biz. (If they look familiar, that’s because last year they appeared on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank!) Stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and order a pint from their website @thecookiedoughcafe or Jet.com. (It’s also available at select supermarkets) Thank us by posting your favorite flavors and tagging #SideHustleSunday!
