Backround

As a Finance student and investor, Mo is passionate about the pursuit of financial literacy and continued education. This has driven her to lead several workshops for students and young adults, motivating their entrepreneurial endeavors, connecting them to valuable support resources, and introducing them to fundamental principles of money management. Much of this work has been done through the registered student organization that she founded during her undergraduate studies at the U of M – Masterminds. The Masterminds constitution was founded on four objectives:  

  • To promote active pursuance of leadership and entrepreneurship roles across a broad range of concentrations  
  • To provide fellowship and networking opportunities for students interested in business and professional development 
  • To provide a forum for innovative ideas to benefit individual interests and business endeavors, in addition to ideas that will benefit the University and the community  
  • To remain accountable to one another in regards to personal as well as collective goals of strengthening and maintaining intrinsic values, as well as working toward explicit financial success.  

Today, these same principles are carried forward through her consulting work and global project management. As a consultant, and founder of Masterminds, LLC., Mo partners with entrepreneurs to strategize and “master plan” innovative solutions to complex business problems. This consulting work covers a wide array of areas from social media management to financial planning/projections to business plans, contracts, and presentations.

Global projects include process/tool globalization, implementation of audit processes, project prioritization and resource planning, and integration of acquired company data/systems.   

Mo believes that with a positive, genuine spirit and focused, measurable goals, anything is possible. This mindset is evident in the mantra she recites daily, “All I must do is ask. The ‘impossible’ is only a figment of my imagination.”
