Black Mom Quits 6-Figure Corporate Job, Now Makes $105K A Month As A YouTuber

Jasmine McCall, an African American mom from Atlanta, Georgia, made a bold move when she left her corporate job to pursue her passion on YouTube. Now, she’s earning over $105,000 monthly as a content creator. What’s more, she only had to work 2 hours a day!

In 2021, Jasmine worked as a resource manager at Amazon, earning $124,000 annually, while also dabbling in a side hustle creating content about personal finance. She once posted a YouTube video revealing how she boosted her credit score from 495 to 820 by fixing errors on her credit report, she told CNBC.

Jasmine said she initially posted videos only to earn a little extra income for childcare. Surprisingly, that video went viral, and six months later, she quit her Amazon job to focus on her side hustle. Her husband, Jay, later joined her after leaving his software engineering job.

Now, the power couple rakes in over $100,000 per month, mostly from digital products and YouTube ads. The best part is that McCall’s work schedule takes only 2 hours daily. After her morning self-care routine and quality time with her husband and 2-year-old son, she starts to work.

Throughout the week, she made her agendas clear, too. Mondays and Tuesdays are YouTube content days, while Wednesdays and Thursdays are for partnership content and strategy sessions with brands, and Fridays are dedicated to publicity and press.

Jasmine makes sure to wrap up work by 1pm. The rest of the day, she spends time with her family, sometimes even with a “no phones” rule. She is grateful for being able to work from home while watching her son grow up, thanks to their trustworthy nanny. Her success has not only blessed her family but has allowed her parents to retire early.

“Walking away from the stability of a 9-to-5 job can be scary when you don’t know what’s on the other side. But choosing this life has been a bigger blessing than we ever could have imagined,” she said.

This year, she is celebrating 10 years in business.

“Summertime,” Ms. Iversen says, “is when large groups of Black family reunions come to New Orleans to celebrate and unite, this is our favorite time of the year because of all the love they bring to our city. Families over the years have been asking for additional Black-owned services. We want to assist our families and we now have the capacity to accommodate the family banquets and picnics. We are partnering with Ms. Bunny Young, owner of Crawbabies LLC and an exquisite Black-owned and operated event hall.”

She continues, “The family reunion picnics will take place under the breathtaking 200-year-old oak trees in our historic city park. We can provide Second-Line Brass Bands, and DJs, and now can throw parties you will never forget.”

New Excursions: Lousiana Black Heritage Trinity Tour!

Also, Ms. Iversen continues, “I have been inspired to offer a brand-new combo tour, combining three destinations in an all-day excursion: A Swamp tour in the bayou of South Louisiana, a visit to The Whitney Plantation Museum of Slavery, in Edgar, and the third destination is a tour of the River Road African American Museum in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. The River Road African American Museum is a true gem of Louisiana, educating its visitors on the history and culture of African Americans in rural communities of South Louisiana, freedom, resilience, and reconciliation. This combo tour will give our visitors a unique opportunity to explore wildlife, the horror of slavery, and the glory of OurStory.”

On this all-day excursion, Ms. Bunny Young and her will provide their guests with healthy snacks, water, iced tea, and a classic New Orleans Po-boy sandwich. “All Bout Dat Tours LLC is ready and excited!” Ms. Iversen states.

Disney Collaborates With Black-Owned Photography Studio To Reimagine Its White Princess Characters

CreativeSoul, an Atlanta-based Black-owned photography business, has been tapped to collaborate with Disney to launch a special edition artist series that features a beautiful collection of reimagined diverse dolls. All of them are inspired by the original Disney princesses.

The CreativeSoul Doll Collection, which is based on the work of CreativeSoul Photography founders Regis and Kahran Bethencourt, completely reimagines what a classic princess could look like through a diverse new lens.

The dolls, which are inspired by four Disney Princesses — Tiana, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Cinderella — have natural hairstyles and dark-colored skin, empowering girls of color that they can be a princess, too. The dolls are adorned with intricate African fabrics and jewelry in bright colors that showcase the vibrant culture.

Aside from that, the collection will also include a series of 5 photographic prints of the models that inspired the dolls, plus one bonus print that features Elsa.

The husband and wife duo behind the collaboration has always pursued initiatives that highlight and celebrate the beauty of diversity uniquely and creatively for more than 13 years.

“Our mission has always been to bring bold inspiring images of people of color to life,” Kahran said.

“We are both excited and proud of this project and hope that through the lens of photography, it will help further empower young girls of color and show they can be a princess too,” added Regis.
