From Tricia’s Perspective

Why Did You Start UNUM Magazine?

“I have a background in design and I wanted to create impactful content about women around the world. I got the name UNUM from the phrase “E Pluribus UNUM” meaning “out of many, one.” I’ve lived around the world and wanted to create something to highlight the stories of women around the world. UNUM is about building connections and sharing who we are.”

What Wisdom Have You Learned In Your First Year of Business?

“I think its constantly learning. I took a huge leap of faith [starting UNUM]. It’s still considered a startup but it’s growing so fast. I have big visions and I keep opening up different doors. I’ve never limited myself to one path in this business. I see this as a huge global collaborative magazine. “

What Advice Would You Give to A New Entrepreneur?

“Be flexible. There’s this control that comes with being an owner, but be flexible to what opportunities can arise. Really think about what could potentially come out of something you didn’t realize was there. If there is something that you wanna do, go for it.”
