In this episode, I am excited to have Jessica Hylton-Leckie on to talk about her journey from law to food blogging, and the resiliency of being a black female entrepreneur.

Jessica is the author of the online cookbook "It's That Easy," which helps readers easily transition to a plant-based lifestyle. She is also the founder of Jessica in the Kitchen, a multi award-winning vegetarian and vegan recipe website, sharing hundreds of whole foods recipes. Jessica has been featured in numerous interviews and websites, including ESSENCE's July 2017 issue, The Huffington Post, SELF magazine, Buzzfeed, Yahoo! Food, and many more.


Topics Covered

  • Her history in law and baking, what switching from law to food blogging looked like for her, as well as what her business model and average day looks like.
  • How she successfully switched, unexpected challenges she came across, and how she found her tribe and community.
  • The different aspects and skills that go into being a blogger, and how she finds herself using the skills she learned in law school in her business every day.
