This week in the guest chair we have Jessica Nabongo. Jessica is a wanderlust, writer, entrepreneur, public speaker and travel expert, most widely known for being the first Black woman on record to visit every country in the world. 

At her core, she is a dreamer looking to craft a life and career that interconnects her passions and talents. 

A first generation American, Jessica was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan to Ugandan parents. 

As her career path changed, Jessica realized that travel, writing and photography continued to show up as vehicles of self expression and were essential parts of her life, leading to the creation of her blog, The Catch Me If You Can. She also created Jet Black, a boutique luxury travel company that hosts group trips and curates itineraries to countries in Africa, Central and South America, the Caribbean. Her work as a travel writer and entrepreneur has led to speaking opportunities around the world. And she started it all as a side hustler

 In this episode she shares:

  • How and why she started The Catch Me If You Can blog and when it became a side hustle
  • How she uses her blog to share her travel adventures and build a global community. 
  • Her experiences founding a boutique travel agency and the effect the pandemic had on that business
  • How she uses her story to educate and inspire others to travel and experience the world around them through her new book, The Catch Me If You Can
  • And so much more!

Hi! I’m Nicaila, the Creator and Host of the Side Hustle Pro Podcast. I started Side Hustle Pro when I was a side hustler myself. I was a digital marketer at NPR by day, side hustler by night. Through the powerful stories shared on this show and the courage to launch my own initiatives, I was able to quit my own job and go full time with Side Hustle Pro.
