Today in the guest chair we have Morgan DeBaun, who is a serial entrepreneur and corporate advisor. As the Founder & CEO of Blavity Inc., the leading digital media company for Black culture and millennials, Morgan has grown the company into a market leader for Black media, reaching over 100  million readers per month through a growing brand portfolio which includes: Blavity News, 21Ninety, AfroTech, Travel Noire, Shadow & Act, and Lunchtable

In this episode Morgan shares:

  • An update on what she is working on these days, how she juggles and prioritizes each one of her businesses, & how she works her personal brand into her entire vision for her life and her different companies.
  • How she navigated the pressures of being a young CEO
  • How she pivoted during early COVID days to protect Blavity’s legacy and the team’s salaries
  • How she reframed her mindset to appreciate the tiny moments of joy everyday in order to avoid burnout and be the best CEO she can be
  • How she is shifting the business for her team to work fully remotely & how they still find a way to stay connected. 
  • Some of the mistakes she made while starting her companies 
  • The differences in running a digital business vs a physical products business
