Juliana Richards arrived in the United States from Nigeria with little more than 100 dollars in her pocket. Ten years later she was the founder and CEO of Slim Girl Shapewear, a fast-growing global brand and multimillion-dollar company. Her body shaping and contouring clothing line has opened up a whole new category of clothing for women around the world and become go-to wardrobe necessities for high profile celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Carmen Electra, and others.
In Building a Million Dollar Side Hustle, Richards shares her compelling and inspiring journey of immigrating to the United States and starting a company using her college loans, expanding it into a global brand leader in body shapers, swimwear, and lingerie. In sharing her story to inspire other entrepreneurs, Richards explains her three-word philosophy: poise, obsession, and persistence.
The story of Slim Girl Shapewear—Juliana’s story—is her testament and her gift to anyone who wants to achieve success. This is a book for anyone who believes in the American Dream, and for anyone who wants to be deeply moved by a story filled with wisdom, inspiration, hope, and humor.
