Don't Drink The Pickle Juice

Don't Drink The Pickle Juice

“You’ve got to be a beast, that’s the only way they respect you...had I accepted the pickle juice, I would be drinking pickle juice right now.” - These words by Nicki Minaj capture the spirit of Don’t Drink The Pickle Juice Podcast, inspired by the analogy she drew between getting what you deserve and getting the opposite - the “pickle juice”.

In 2021, the image of success is oversaturated, but the knowledge of what it takes to attain that success is still very niche. Contrary to what social media may present, ‘getting to the bag’ is a series of savvy and future focused business decisions that rest on how well you recognise and leverage your value, even at the very beginning of your career when you feel the most vulnerable.
