When it comes to hard work and dedication, Necole Bitchie is no stranger to the amount of time, patience and hustle it takes to build a brand. Necole is an entertainment blogger turned business woman and the owner of NecoleBitchie.com. Her offspring companies include: her lifestyle publication XONecole, her web channel BitchieTV, and a forthcoming apparel line, BC Society.
Although Ms. Necole seems to live a glamorous life interviewing and befriending celebrities, her life was far from pretty about seven years ago. Losing both her parents and her inspiration, Necole found her self without a job. After taking a leap of faith and moving to New York in 2007, Necole realized that jobs were scarce in the entertainment industry and she felt like she had failed. A year later, she was broke and living with her aunt, in a situation where she felt lost. After reading the inspirational book The Secret, Necole decided that she wasn’t going to cry about not getting a job—she was going to create her own.
NecoleBitchie.com was born and within a year it became one of the leading urban entertainment blogs on the internet. Her accolades include being to first blogger to appear on BET’s 106 & Park, being named one of Ebony Magazine’s Power 100, being honored at the Soul Train Music Awards as the Best Soul Site and more. Her humble beginnings have certainly taught her to value every opportunity. Ms. Necole is an inspiration to every young woman with big dreams.
