I graduated from Prairie View A&M University in December of 2011 and entered the workforce two weeks after walking across the stage. Soon after starting my life as a real adult (I had bills, bills, bills for real ya’ll), I begin to want more out of my career and flirted with the idea of even having my own business one day. During this time, I realized there weren’t many places online that I could culturally and professionally relate to, and get solid, actionable advice from. Instead, I found sites catered to my people that were oversaturated with celebrity gossip and news.
I began to feel that there was a void in the digital media space, and that the world was lacking content that catered to the needs of young Black professionals and entrepreneurs that wanted more. Soon I realized after talking to friends and coworkers that they too wanted resources that would empower, educate, and challenge them. They wanted to read about people that looked like them getting the bag, making mogul moves, and they wanted actionable tips on how they could do the same.
Shortly after, the idea of Mogul Millennial came to mind, and I knew it was the digital media company that my peers were needing.
If you are new to us, Mogul Millennial is a digital media tech company for young, Black, ambitious entrepreneurs and corporate bosses. We are for Black leaders that’s looking to level up in their corporate job, make a career switch, launch their first startup, or scale their current one. We are the place for the culture that's looking to transition from side hustling to working for themselves full-time.
I’ve always felt that representation is key, and that it’s critical that young Black people like myself see themselves in media doing amazing work in business and in corporate life. Mogul Millennial’s goal is to amplify the voices of Black people and create resources and tools that promote professional growth.
We want to tell the stories of dope Black emerging leaders like Scooter Taylor, a serial entrepreneur who launched a virtual experience during COVID and attracted thousand of online conference attendees months after launching. We want to inspire our sidehustling Black folk with a story about Brittani Rettig, a local business owner in Dallas who left her high paying consulting job at Deloitte to open her own fitness studio. We want to show aspiring Black startup leaders that they can too to build unicorn tech companies like Tope Awotona, the CEO of Calendly, and raise over $100 million in venture funding with an all-Black cofounded team like Dave Salvant, the CEO of Squire.
At Mogul Millennial we highlight these voices, but we also provide you with resources and tools that can help you on your way to becoming the next, best version of you.
I’m excited to share more stories and build beautiful (and useful) tech tools that’ll help you along your “Mogul Millennial” journey.
