1. Monica, thank you for joining us for a brief interview. For the benefit of our readers, tell us a bit about your story?

Of course! I’m a first-generation immigrant, and I would definitely consider myself to be self-made. I have been through numerous hardships, and I’m here to prove that anything can be accomplished with hard work and dedication. In the midst of the social media boom, I saw the vast opportunity and power within social media, so I dove full-force into pursing my dreams as a model and I never looked back. I’ve managed to accumulate a fan-base of nearly a million followers, and I strive to use my platform to inspire others to chase and achieve their goals and dreams.

2. Can you tell us how you first found a passion for entrepreneurship?

This is great question. To make a long story short, I obtained my bachelor’s degree in education, and pursued a career in teaching for a little over a year. Although it was rewarding at times, I realized my career wasn’t as fulfilling as I had once imagined it to be. I decided to pursue a career in business and began working in business development for various companies. I gained success in the business realm, and it led me to open my very own nail business. Although I did well in both roles,I had this lingering desire of becoming a model in the back of my mind. Modeling was something my mother had never approved of nor encouraged, but in 2014, I decided to move to the United states to pursue my dreams.

“If you pursue a specific goal and you aren’t maintaining a positive mindset, you will not succeed. Often times, if you can’t control your mindset you will begin to become desperate for success, and at that point you’ve already lost.” — Monica Huldt

3. What are the fundamental keys to your success?

I attribute my success on social media to my ability to remain completely genuine and how I am able to cultivate authentic relationships with my fans. I’ve found that I am able to set myself apart from others by being personable with my fans, and making each of them feel special in their own way. I really enjoy learning about their lives, interests, families, struggles, and so on. I’ve found it especially important to be there for my fans during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many of them are experiencing difficult situations. Dedication, perseverance, and consistency have all enabled me to successfully build a six-figure business which continues continues to grow with time. For all the young entrepreneurs out there- do not give up when things aren’t going the way you imagined; just keep pushing forward.

4. What big plans do you have for the future?

I always strive to be a role model for young entrepreneurs and I want to show them that through hard work and perseverance, the American Dream is possible. Although I have accomplished many of my dreams and exceeded my expectations as an entrepreneur and model, I strongly believe that I’m just getting started. I plan to continue growing in my modeling career, and I want to continue to be an advocate for women in the entertainment industry. Along with my Husband, I have exciting plans to use my knowledge as an entrepreneur in the real estate industry with our goal being to one day pass on a real estate business to our future children.
