Talented, strong, unexpected, real, quiet, shy, driven & empowering are some of the words I would use to describe Founder & Editor in Chief of MilliOnAir Millie Cooper.
It was only logical that after the success and growth of MilliOnAir worldwide over the last year, we interviewed the woman that started it all.
Meeting Millie was a breath of fresh air. It is great to see a woman so passionate about what she does and believes in. She is a big supporter of the inspiring and empowerment movement and wants her readers to feel the stories she shares.
So let’s get to know Millie and how MilliOnAir was born.
Who is this Millie Cooper we keep seeing all over the social media world?
Thank you Elise for your kind words….Well I am forty-Six years young, loving life, even with all the ups and downs and crazy struggles…A complete globe trotter, racing driver, beach lover, social media addict, artist who sold her art to Hollywood A lister’s and a lover of all things positive.
What inspires you? What makes you wake up each morning and say let’s do this!?
I inspire myself a lot of the time, but also others who have achieved their goals in life influence and inspire me. Also I love reading all my social media messages and wonderful comments from my readers and followers…that is what truly gets me going every day. But also people who are close to me who see my vision and believe in me that support inspires me as well.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I am a qualified plumber, I also gained an ARDS license (google it if you don’t know)!
If you had not started this MilliOnAir, what would you be doing now?
I trained to become a plumber years ago…so plumbing would be my second choice, but running my own women’s plumbing business with me over seeing all the work so I wouldn’t get my nails chipped! Eat your heart out Charlie Mulllins OBE
How do you relax Millie? How do you switch off from the busy life of running a successful business?
I don’t get to relax that much but when I do it’s normally on a beach whatever the weather or in a bath surrounded by candles with no sound at all…I then just switch off completely from the world and take time out…#Bliss
You are a bit of a globetrotter, what is your favorite city in the world and why?
One place is always on my mind…. Malibu! Reasons…my friends, the people, the beaches, the relaxed living and the cute boutiques…Oh and Taverna Tony’s! Delicious food!
The other day we were talking about the inspirational & empowerment movement, what do you love about it?
I love to hear or read about real life success stories and the inspirational people out there. I love all struggles and the heartache and then the success it makes me feel like I can do this. ‘’Anything is possible; I’m possible’’
So, Millie, how did MilliOnAir get started?
My idea and creation came to me on a 13-hour flight, 35,000 feet up in the air with a light bulb moment…An online, interactive magazine full of real inspirational people, some you may know, some you may not know but I wanted to show case the people behind the brands, or behind the art, the music etc. The reason I called it MilliOnAir…well me ‘Millie’ and also being 35,000 feet up in the Air…Or ‘On the Air’! ”Milli On Air”
I love the idea of a magazine that not only covers celebrities & luxury but also real inspirational stories that people can relate to. What made you create that mix?
It is all do to with how I am and how I live and see the world today. Talented people inspire me, I buy from people, I want to know their success stories, their struggles, their downfalls and then their mission to make it in the world. I love all that and that’s what I wanted to put across in the magazine. I love luxury brands, but I also love the ethical brands, the brands what are making a difference in the world.
Who is MilliOnAir’s audience?
I would say it varies, but I like to think, young and older, dynamic, entrepreneurs with a vision for the future.
Name a few of your dream brands? And why?
Gosh there are so many out there that I love, but of the top of my head
Virgin Galactica due to the fact I have followed them when I read an article in Vogue magazine many moons ago, I think in 2004!
Rolls Royce cars of course; in my eyes no other car comes close to the luxury or beauty of the Double R brand and I have been lucky enough to drive the Dawn a few times.
Four Seasons Hotels When I am not happy in hotel I am staying in; my little moto is ‘it’s just not the ‘Four Seasons’
Name a few of your dream cover stories? And why?
Michelle Mone, again she has a story, I love everything she does and I have followed her journey for years, she is a true inspiration.
Michelle Mone in August 2017 edition
Gary Vaynerchuck, he is so NOW, the man of our times and it seems everything he says or thinks is exactly how I think.
Tom Cruise, he has success and inspiration oozing out of him and I just think he is a nice guy plus I love all of his movies.
Theresa May, especially because of her love of shoes…And it is quite widely known that I love shoes…”This is not something that defines me as either a woman or a politician, but it has come to define me in the eyes of the newspapers. I wore a pair of leopard-print kitten heels to a Conservative Party Conference a few years ago and the papers have continued to focus on my feet ever since”
How do you think the digital world and Internet have changed the way online readers get captivated?
I think it is the usual thing…people like to look at crisp, clean, shiny, pretty things and now more so online and with video’s. This is part of the reason I started my magazine, as I wanted to read an online magazine on the go on my iPad. Every time I travelled I would buy a whole bunch of magazines and then leave them for someone else to read when I had finished! With an online interactive magazine, it’s with me for life!
Video advertising is the way I am going with MilliOnAir Global
Since this new journey begun, what would you say has been the most challenging moment so far?
The most challenging moments at first was trying to create and work on everything by myself and get it out there in the big wide world. I still create 60% of the content, but now I have a beautiful team with me.
And most rewarding?
All the wonderful cover stars so far, seeing my magazine at London City Airport private lounge, people believing in me and celebrating one year of MilliOnAir Magazine with my team, we all went to the new NED 5-star hotel in London, had some amazing treats in Millie’s lounge and spent the rest of the weekend being pampered in the spa! Very rewarding indeed!
Do you ever take a moment to see how far MilliOnAir has come? To what do you attribute the rapid growth in readership worldwide?
Yes, I always like my little moments to look back in wonder about all the amazing things that I have achieved, a couple of bad things but you must move on from those very quickly. As they say bad leadS to good or in my case amazing things and I have ended up with a really strong team now. Social Media is the name of this wonderful game and we push ourselves out there like crazy, again it is something we really enjoy working on.
‘’Anything is possible; I’m possible’’
What advice do you have for anyone who wants to start something new but is afraid to do so?
I would say go with what you love doing, if you have a passion for something try and turn that into a business. I love creating, I have created art for celebrities, I have designed many many websites over the years, looked after UHNWI and managed social media accounts…I turned all of that into MilliOnAir Online Interactive Magazine and have never looked back, I love working my passion every single day.
Can you give us any top-secret information of what’s to come over the next issues of MilliOnAir?
There will be a lot more video content, video advertising and video interviews, a lot more interaction in the magazine as well as very influential individuals and plenty more inspirational Hollywood stars.
Thank you, Millie,! I look forward to doing a catch up later in the year.
I love getting to know interesting people with a captivating story, and Millie for sure fits that criteria. Stay tuned as I share more stories and content that you will not want to miss.
So, readers, if you have not shared MilliOnAir with the world yet, what are you waiting for?
Let’s keep it real,
