ABOUT MONICA KADE, FOUNDER
I'm Monica Kade, the Founder of The Moment, Author & Podcast Host.
The Moment HQ was born from my love for interviewing and sharing powerful stories. I so deeply wanted a space I could share the people who move and inspire me; those who are impacting the world while doing what they love.
I wanted to bring The Moment to life because there have been many times in my life where I just needed 'something' to support me through a challenging moment. I also felt there wasn't one central place full of the uplifting and empowering content that I craved. Somewhere in cyberspace I could hang out and enrich my heart and mind!
Now, we can both immerse ourselves in quality conversations on things that matter and messages that remind us of what's truly important: This Moment Now.
LET ME TELL YOU A QUICK STORY...
I began producing content when I was about 5 or 6 years old. With my dad being a film director/photographer, it meant that I was always either in front of or behind the camera. Once I was old enough to put a camera on my shoulder, I took on director and producer. My brother and sister were my muses, the world my oyster.
Fast forward to my early 20s. My love for interviewing began. One day an inner whisper said, "I want to start a magazine". At 20 years old, studying at university (and hating it), I started my first business; an online magazine: Mink.
In its day it was one of a kind, featuring the up-comers in the creative arts. At a time when online mags were new and rare, I ran a team in Sydney and Melbourne for 2 years. After that, I moved from Sydney, Australia to live in New York City and start new adventures—but always interviewing.
Over the years I've had the pleasure of interviewing hundreds of people doing what they love and challenging the status quo.
Some of these include Lewis Howes, Kate Northrup, Sheri Salata, Christine Hassler, JP Sears, The Oprah Winfrey Academy for Girls, Danielle La Porte, Gabrielle Bernstein, Lisa Messenger, Dr Robert Zembroski, Guy Kawasaki, Wes Carr, Ben Lee, Scott Gooding, Dr John Demartini, Luke Hines, Pete Evans, Nora Gedgaudas, Dr Rebecca Ray and more!
I also run a copywriting business, MonicaWroteit.com. I've written for Collective Hub, Thrive Global, Commbank's Women in Focus and some of my successful online ventures include Mink Magazine, Career Confessions; Editor for WorkDifferent and Managing editor for print publications: Aspire and My Business magazine.
In 2008, Anthill Business Magazine nominated me a Top 30 under 30 Entrepreneur. I've spoken at Commbank’s Wired for Wonder, Northside Clinic, Vibewire's FastBREAK U-Turn and Macquarie University's AIESEC Tour.
I've appeared on many podcasts and been interviewed on Ch7 Weekend Sunrise and featured in CLEO magazine, Collective Hub, The Cool Career and PsychCentral.
I have an ongoing love affair with the ocean, especially on a rainy day. I love sunset over sunrise—for the pastel colours—and I drink black coffee. New York City is my second love affair and I'm a snowboarder, summertime surfer and love CrossFit.
