When hearing the word clique, usually the first thought that comes to mind is an exclusive group of like-minded individuals, who share the same interests, tastes and attitudes and usually no “outsiders” are allowed.
*Cues the ‘Mean Girls’*
However, Atlanta native Taylar Barrington-Booker is working on reclaiming that word and reinventing it with the launch of her newest online, subscription service affectionally titled, Cliquish®.
Created in August of 2019 in Chicago, the platform currently serves over 10,000 women entrepreneurs, bloggers (including YouTubers and Podcasters) and content creators. For a monthly membership of $7, the service offers one-on-one coaching, monthly coaching and opportunities to collaborate with major brands.
As a marketing specialist with more than a decade in the field, the Florida A&M University graduate saw a need for Cliquish®, a clique that’s inclusive and diverse.
“There’s a need across the board,” Barrington-Booker says. “Cliquish is a multicultural community, it teaches the business of content creation and teaching them [businesses] how to grow and monetize their content creation.”
She credits FAMU on influencing her vision with Cliquish®.
“I feel like FAMU made me fearless, it made me fearless, it made me resourceful.”
A huge part of Cliquish® is acknowledging the power of women and the strength we can possess when we are collaborating instead of competing.
“We survive when we feel supported,” she says. ” I think it’s so important for women to provide support.”
This October, Barrington-Booker and her team will be hitting the road on a 4-week tour titled, Faces of Content. The tour gives women content creators the opportunity to display their stories on a digital scope.
“It’s the first tour of its kind,” Barrington-Booker says. ” We photograph content creators across the city and ask them how their content will change the world.”
You can find all shades on Cliquish®. Barrington-Booker works to make sure that all women are welcomed in the clique.
“We hope to work with women of different races, backgrounds, sizes, and sexual origins.”
The tour kicks off October 12th in Atlanta.
