Welcome back to THEBLERDGURL podcast! In this episode, I’m joined by Jacque Aye, author, entrepreneur, and podcaster. We’ll be discussing her debut novel, “How to Be an Adult,” and her journey towards writing it. Aye shares her inspiration for the book, drawing from her experiences in corporate America. She also talks about her personal growth and how it led her to explore her passion for writing fiction. We touch on the concept of “soft life” and how capitalism has distorted the idea of self-care. We also discuss the cultural expectations placed on Black women to be caretakers and how it can lead to neglecting one’s own needs. Aye also shares information on her upcoming projects, including a self-care coloring book and a collection of short stories. Thanks for tuning in!
Jacque Aye shuttered her popular shop “Adorned by Chi” to launch a self-care brand and lean into her writing career
