Mogul CEO Tiffany Pham is back at LionessMagazine.com, giving us her motivations and why it’s important to keep a multicultural mindset.
In case you somehow missed it, Pham is our current January 2016 cover star. In the feature article, she chats with Lioness’ Natasha about her startup dreams and teaching herself how to code in order to build the Mogul platform. The 29-year-old also dished on why her grandmother is such an instrumental part of her life’s purpose and how she bootstrapped in the early stages to save cash.
Today she’s back for round two.
Mogul reaches 18 million women per week. How are you able to connect with women from various cultures and experiences?
“Having coming from an international background where I was exposed at a young age to very different cultures, it made me able to connect with many different people in many different ways. When you’re a citizen of the world, you grow a curiosity for different languages and people of different backgrounds,” Pham explained.
“I grew up in a household where we were French citizens and then became dual French and United States citizens.”
How do you juggle spending time with your family and pursuing your passions?
“What’s amazing about Mogul is that the team feels to me like a family and also at the same time I do have my brother involved as our CTO. I’m so well supported by my sister as well as my parents. They are constantly providing support and giving to my brother and me immensely in other ways.”
What are some things you do to stay motivated?
“I think internally it was something that was driven by desire to honor my promise, honor my grandmother’s legacy. Being driven at an early age means internal motivation is the biggest key. Also being surrounded by amazingly talented people who love [our work] so much and our users. I also find motivation from the letters i receive from young women around the world.”
