Have you ever heard the saying you are what you consume? If you are career-focused and want to move from the basement to the corner office suite, the manifestation of your dreams starts with your mindset. What are you putting in front of you that is getting you closer to where you want to be? Outside of the here-today-gone-tomorrow dance challenges, mouth-salivating recipes, and cute outfit compilations, TikTok has become a clutch resource for inspiration and career advice—whether you like it in a serious tone or delivered as pure comedy.
While you scroll on your way to your next lunch break, take a look at these Black women on TikTok who are not only engaging and entertaining but provide advice and tips that will set you up to live your best professional life:
