While many millennials are still struggling to find their passion midway through their careers, 29-year-old Mica Tan seems to have figured hers out much earlier in life.

When Tan was only 25, she became president and chief executive officer of the MFT Group of Companies, considered a pioneer in business transformation and business equity.

Her company has investments in various industries such as pharmaceutical, healthcare, financing, stock trading, real estate, lifestyle, and entertainment.

Tan was already trading stocks at 13 years old. By the time she was 15, she was also trading foreign exchange. All these while she was working for the family’s pawnshop business.

Rappler business reporter Ralf Rivas talks to Tan about her leadership style, outlook on business, and how she manages to wear many hats while staying sane during the pandemic. – Rappler.com
