Black Enterprise Brings Yandy Smith on as a Contributor

February 6, 2012  |  

Yandy said if there’s a check to be had she’s there, and apparently Black Enterprise has one for her. The “Love and Hip Hop” star and former manager of Jim Jones’ business savvy has landed her a gig as a contributing celebrity blogger for the publication’s website.

Last year, Yandy was featured in an article, “Young Boss Moves: 5 Success Tips from Love & Hip Hop’s Yandy Smith,” and the response was so strong that Black Enterprise decided to bring her on full time. Her blog will feature advice for entrepreneurs and her thoughts on building and maintaining successful careers. Yandy commented on her new role saying:

“I’m a huge fan of Black Enterprise and I respect what they do. I’m very excited and honored to have this opportunity to offer my expertise.”

In addition to this gig, Yandy continues to manage entertainment talent as well as her lifestyle brand, Everything Girls Love. Yandy’s relationship with Jim may have gone sour once she got too personal, but overall, she seems to be a woman about her business. Like she said, at the end of the day, it’s about a check.

What do you think about Yandy’s new job? Would you take business advice from her?
