28-year-old Tyra Myricks makes 7 figures and has 5 side hustles.
If the Land of Side Hustles had a queen, it would surely be 28-year-old Tyra Myricks, daughter of hip hop legend Jam Master Jay. It all began in 2009 when she launched a fashion label while still in high school that eventually helped pay her way through college. She initially went to university to study pre-med but dropped out after the label saw her earning over double her tuition.
She took the streetwear world by storm with celebrity partnerships, and advertising on Instagram's TMZ the Shade Room. In 2012, she rebranded the company now known as Wealth as high fashion streetwear.
"It's not the business you do, it's what you do differently," she told Insider.
Aside from owning a fashion label, and branding and merchandising company, she's also the co-owner of The Method, Los Angeles' first Black-owned gym. Myricks is also about to launch a pizza shop with T'yanna Wallace, daughter of rapper Biggie Smalls, and she's co-creating a platform to provide young entrepreneurs with resources to start their own businesses.
