We recently interviewed Millie Leung, a Global Entrepreneur, Bestselling Author and International Speaker. She is running a multi-million dollar global travel business. Her book released last year “MIND AND MONEY MAKEOVER”, has achieved Best-Selling status in 3 categories. Her success is definitely an inspiration for many others. So let’s know more about her.
Pro Media Mag : First of all, please introduce yourself to our readers.
Millie Leung : Hello Everyone! My name is Millie Leung. I am an Entrepreneur, Business Mentor, Bestselling Author and International Trainer/Speaker. I teach people how to make money traveling the World, make a difference, and create a life they truly love. I run a successful global business from my laptop/phone and have been on more than 50+ vacations around the World in the last 5+ years. I believe that everyone can completely author his/her own life, and that joy, deep meaning, prosperity, freedom, amazing experiences and fulfillment is ALL possible. All you have to do is to take actions! For today’s interview, I have also prepared a FREE gift for everyone – stay tune to the end of this interview for more information!
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to start your own business?
Millie Leung : As you can probably feel, I totally LOVE my life today! BUT… it wasn’t always this way.
I grew up following the traditional path of ’go to school, get good grades, get a good job, work hard, save money, invest in a diversified mutual funds portfolio and hope to retire by 65 years old’. I was doing just that – graduated from my Master degree with straight A and then worked my way up to a senior position in a Multi-National Company. As an outsider looking in, my life looked pretty good – good job, nice house, nice car, but I was feeling lost inside. Although I was paid well, I was stressed out, burned out, and longing for more joy, meaning and fulfillment in life. Being stuck in the office for 10 hours a day was NOT the way I wanted to spend the rest of my life until I was 65. And during Year 2008 – 2010, because of my lack of financial awareness, I lost a lot of my hard-earned money during the economic crisis…
But as people often say, ’Breakthrough often comes after your breakdown’. In 2011, I was tired of being sick and tired. I decided to pursue my passion, start my own business and embark on my journey to pursue Financial Freedom. I had no prior entrepreneurial experience, no network, little money and my baby girl just turned 1-year-old. I didn’t have anything – all I had was a burning desire to succeed, a great attitude to keep learning and keep taking actions despite obstacles and setbacks.
26 months later in November 2013, I have built our monthly residual incomes substantially, and my family and I became financially free. We no longer needed a job – and we are now free to do what we what, with who we want, when we want, and at where we want. My business gave me joy, freedom and fulfillment.
Pro Media Mag : You traveled to more than 50 places in the last 5 years. That must have helped you big time in teaching others how to travel the World?
Millie Leung : Well, I believe Travel is what most people already want to do in their lives, don’t you agree? And the reason why I am able to travel so much and have so many amazing experiences is because I have PURPOSELY built my business around my passion of Travel.
My mentor has once told me, ’begin with the end in mind.’ Figure out what you love to do and the ideal lifestyle you want and then just build your business around it! And I did just that! I run my travel business on my laptop/phone and internet and it allows me to see the World in a way that was NEVER possible in my old job. It has opened my mind to possibilities, expanded my horizons, established meaningful relationships, created amazing experiences and brought me freedom – financially, physically and emotionally.
Pro Media Mag : You are running a very successful global travel business. What’s the secret to your success? You also share your ideas with people around the world?
Millie Leung : Thank you! My favorite quotes are ’dream big, start small, act NOW!’ and ’where there is a will, there is a way’. These 2 quotes are so true! I believe if you can dream it, take massive and consistent actions, and don’t give up, you will get to where you want. Don’t worry about not knowing what to do – when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. So just take a baby step, and keep taking the next baby step!
I love what I do and I believe everyone can do the same thing. So the question is – ’Do you also want to travel the World, make money, make a difference and create a life you truly love?’ If the answer is YES, then I would love to teach you HOW – connect with me on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/Fly.with.Millie) and join the movement of the new entrepreneurial lifestyle!
Pro Media Mag : You are also into writing and your new book MIND AND MONEY MAKEOVER is getting exceptional response. Can you tell our readers about the book briefly?
Millie Leung : Yes, certainly! I launched my book ’Mind and Money Makeover’ last year on Amazon.com and the book has achieved International Best Selling status in 3 categories! I am so overwhelmed by everyone’s support and love!
In the book, I shared my entrepreneurial journey and lessons, a proven formula for generating more income, the ultimate wealth-generating secret that the rich and the successful use, I help my readers to map out the elements of their ideal business, and also shared my proven 5-step system that will transform anyone’s life and take him/her to living his/her dreams.

Pro Media Mag : You are also an inspiring speaker. What are the main topics you focus on?
Millie Leung : In the last few years, I started sharing my entrepreneurial journey, lessons and tips with people around me and the feedback was amazing. As time goes by, I was blessed that more and more people wanting to hear me speak. I got invited to speak in various countries around the World, including Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, South Africa and USA. My most recent speaking engagement was at the AT&T Stadium (Texas, USA) with more than 23,000+ people in the audience. My topics are typically around Entrepreneurship, Financial Education, Personal Growth and Women Empowerment – I found speaking to be fulfilling, as I can connect with people, deliver specific messages and tools, and create a direct impact on people’s lives.
Pro Media Mag : What attracts you the most – business, writing, traveling or speaking to people?
Millie Leung : That’s a tough question! Honestly, I enjoy all of them! Zig Ziglar once said, ’You can get everything you want in life if you will just help enough other people get what they want.’ My business, my book, my products and my speaking all allow me the opportunity to connect with people and make a difference, which gives me joy and fulfillment while creating a substantial income. With the time and resources we now have, we can also give back to the society more – In fact, I have donated 2 schools in Guatemala in the last 2 years and been on several Voluntours around the World, helping underprivileged children to have a chance for a brighter future. For that, we are very grateful.
