MUMBAI — August 2022 — If 2021 was the year of the side hustle, 2022 is the year of the multi-hyphenate: the jack-of-all-trades go-getter building a lifestyle doing what they love. RJ Yolande Mendes based in Mumbai, India, is a top example of a multi-hyphenate working as a singer, voice-over artist, entrepreneur, digital marketing expert, life & career coach and freelancer offering services like business branding, content writing and graphic design.
“I love to passionately do more and to learn new things every day. I can’t imagine wasting away the talents I have been blessed with. I’ve made so many connections and learned many new skills while pushing myself to grow every day as an artist and entrepreneur and that’s what I love about working on so many different projects,” said Miss Mendes.
In addition to completing a Master of Business Administration at Ural Federal University, Yolande has completed more than 200 certificate courses across digital marketing, business coaching, brand marketing, career coaching and counselling, design, e-mail and newsletter marketing, Google analytics, leadership, customer service, social media management, web development and more.
Yolande founded and operates a brand management business, DIVE International, offering growth plans and strategies to help clients build their brand and stay competitive through bespoke graphic, logo and web design services.
“Yolande and I have worked on many projects together and she always produces exceptional work. Not only does she quickly grasp the vision of the creative direction, but she also adds to the projects! I thoroughly enjoy working with her to create masterpieces!” said Patty Barrios, a DIVE International client.
As a voice actor, she has been featured on thousands of projects as a radio host and on television commercials, podcasts, explainer videos, e-learning content and animated videos. Yolande also creates original music and is set to release new tracks in 2022. Her music can be found on YouTube, Spotify and various other music channels globally.
“Yolande Mendes inspires women to think outside the box and push themselves to learn more and do what they love. People don’t need to work a nine-to-five type of job anymore. Yolande is an inspiring example of someone who’s creating their own path towards success as a multi-hyphenate while also mentoring people like me to grow,” said Megan D’souza, a DIVE International employee.
