From the very beginning of her life, Monica Phromsavanh has been inspired by the grit and determination of her parents, who escaped civil unrest in Laos to pursue a new life and the promise of opportunities in Argentina. Though those promises were not kept to the family and they ended up in a refugee camp in Misiones, Monica — who was born in Argentina during the time her family lived in the camp — still witnessed the hustle and heart of her parents, who refused to give up and wanted to make a way for their family.
Monica, who moved to New York City to make her own way when she just 17, has inherited that tenacity. On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, she shares her journey from street vendor to a 4,000 square-foot retail space to CEO/Co-founder of her innovative fashion delivery service, MODABOX. Plus, what she wants every woman to know about not-so-glamorous side of entrepreneurship and the truth about unicorns.
On this episode you’ll learn:
- The importance of doing the things that don’t scale.
- How to turn your clients into your evangelists.
- How Monica is figuring out how to add a social component to her business.
- Why every business is not supposed to be funded.
- What you need to know about working with investors.
- Why entrepreneurship is not as glamorous as you think.
