276: How Zakia Blain of FBF Body Determines When To Pivot In Business REWIND

In this rewind episode, Zakia Blain, the CEO and Founder of FBF Body is in the Side Hustle Pro podcast guest chair today for an update episode! Zakia is the master of the pivot. 

Her company started with a fitness challenge, and when her doctors told her that she couldn’t work out anymore due to an illness, she pivoted into shapewear. 

Then, when the pandemic hit and people were not going outside and didn’t need as much shapewear, FBF Body pivoted into athleisure apparel.

FBF Body’s highly sought after shapewear and fitness apparel has taken on a cult following of its own, largely in part due to Zakia’s open and honest method of sharing herself actually wearing it and looking amazing while doing so.

On this episode, Zakia shares:

  • How she builds anticipation for her products
  • How she manages and plans out her inventory seasons in advance
  • Her monthly drop technique for new items 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.
