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 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 Black millennials 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 Black millennial entrepreneurs and corporate bosses. We are for Black millennials 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 Black millennials looking to transition from side hustling to working for themselves full-time. We are the place for progressive Black millennials looking for resources on how to creatively (and profitably) make an impact by using their God-given talents.
I’ve always felt that representation is key, and that it’s critical that Black millennials like myself see themselves in media doing amazing work in business and in corporate life. Mogul Millennial’s goal is to amplify the voices for Black millennials and create resources and tools that promote professional growth.
We want to tell the stories of dope Black millennials like Dom Collins, a former Wallstreet Investment Banker who took leap of faith into entrepreneurship. We want to inspire our sidehustling Black millennials 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 Black millennials how to make money in tech like Rodney Gainous Jr., or even how to land a job at one of the biggest tech companies even if you’re not technical like Tim Salau.
At Mogul Millennial we highlight the voices of Black millennials that are making strides in corporate and in entrepreneurship. At Mogul Millennial we are focused on not only telling those stories, but providing 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.
Follow us on Instagram and LinkedIn for more stories and updates on what we are building over at Mogul Millennial. Along with a full website redesign, we have some pretty exciting things in the pipeline this year for you.
