Mimi Ikonn, Co-founder of Luxy Hair and YouTube sensation

Today’s guest considers herself a “global citizen” and documents her travels and fashion through a blog, a wildly successful YouTube channel and popular Instagram account (just shy of 1M followers popular…WOW!).  Her name is Mimi Ikonn a co-founder of Luxy Hair and YouTube sensation.

On her YouTube channel she documents tutorials from everything to her morning and nighttime routine to her favorite outfits to how to clean out your closet. Before becoming a successful entrepreneur she dropped out of the International Business Program at Seneca College in her second year to later become a Certified Image Consultant.

Three takeaways from our interview:

  • How she leveraged YouTube to start a business
  • How her family made ends meet moving from Azerbaijan to Canada when she was 16 years old. The life lessons that experience gave her.
  • Quitting college after her second year and why she’s proud of it!
