Mia Ray, a Detroit-bred entrepreneur, is making waves in the billion-dollar luxury lifestyle space. The mom, entrepreneur, and curator of the Glam-Aholic lifestyle is on track to bring in $25 million in revenue for 2022. A retired fashion blogger, Ray took her love for fashion and created the Glam-Aholic Lifestyle brand for savvy young women worldwide. Glam-Aholic Lifestyle bags range in price from $40 to $250 and consists of luggage, totes, travel accessories, wallets and cosmetic bags. 

Rolling out recently talked to Ray about her day-to-day schedule, what inspires her, and books that changed her life. 

What is your day-to-day routine like at work?

A snapshot of my day-to-day is walking into my Glam-Aholic lifestyle warehouse, having team meetings with staff, going over marketing plans, approving Glam-Aholic product samples, and setting monthly goals.

What inspires you to show up at work every day? 

I love what I do. I love to create things that I wish existed, and I love to inspire. I am a workaholic, so showing up to work every day keeps my creative juices high, and that fire lit to keep persisting. I prayed to be able to live this dream every day, and I’m doing it through my Glam-Aholic Lifestyle brand.

How did you determine your career path?

I have always had a love for fashion. I’ve always admired the greats who came before me. I wanted to do something in the fashion industry but was unsure what it would be until I started seeing the positive feedback from my lifestyle/fashion blog, which led me to the Glam-Aholic Lifestyle you see today.
