As CEO of Beautycon media, which sells subscription boxes of next-generation beauty products and organizes conventions for their young fans and creators, Moj Mahdara must constantly mainline the internet. "I wake up at 5:50 and check Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter direct messages," she says. When she's not traveling for the company--whose revenue, she says, will hit $10 million this year--she's usually at Beautycon's L.A. offices. There, everyone but Mahdara has a workspace. "I get stuff done only when I sit in someone else's room and see what they're doing," she explains. Inc. pried the peripatetic Mahdara away from her work and smartphone so she could tell us what keeps her going.
