Morgan Lux is a name that if you haven’t heard before, you certainly will soon. Lux is a social media influencer, model, businesswoman, brand builder, and marketing guru. Aside from being a multifaceted model, Morgan has gained a loyal fan base of over 1 million followers on Instagram alone. The young star is utilizing her powerful social media presence to become an inspiration for aspiring entrepreneurs and models across the globe.
Morgan is best known as an influencer, but her skillset expands far beyond marketing herself on social media. While constantly working to expand her social media presence, Lux also works as co-founder and founder of multiple businesses that help to teach models how to properly market themselves and monetize their platforms. Morgan has since entered into the world of stocks and is investing in order to diversify her income. But she doesn’t stop just there, Morgan hopes to make a break in reality television, and will soon make her debut in the industry on “Men of West Hollywood” airing in the near future.
Despite becoming the successful entrepreneur she is today, Morgan had to overcome countless obstacles. She spent the majority of her childhood moving, and she was financially unstable for as long as she can remember. After years of constant fear and homelessness, her family was able to move out of a motorhome and into a more suitable home. Unfortunately, an electrical problem left the house in ashes and they were back to the motorhome. During this time, Morgan was 14 years old and attending one of the largest high schools on the West Coast, Fullerton Union. As the word got out around school about her living situation, Morgan was ridiculed by bullies for her living arrangements.
The myriad of tribulations Morgan faced- fighting homelessness, being bullied in school, as well as experiencing abuse at home ignited a fire in her to remove herself from her current situation. She graduated high school a year early and began working to afford living on her own and pursued her passion for culinary arts. Once Morgan was in culinary school, she quickly realized it wasn’t for her and continued her social media journey that she had begun at the age 16. It was through social media that Morgan connected with Mike Smith, an entrepreneur who had been in the industry for over ten years and had created the largest female cannabis lifestyle brand. He saw the potential Morgan had and taught her how to properly market herself on social media, ultimately teaching her the tools needed to excel in growing her following. With Mike as her mentor, Morgan hit the ground running and in 2017, she became verified on Twitter and hit a million followers on Instagram. At the time of this major milestone, she was just 21 years old.
Unfortunately, Morgan’s million-follower mark was short lived as her page was permanently deleted within months of the big accomplishment. Morgan was left with the only option which was to rebuild a new account from the ground up. Through consistency and hard work, Morgan managed to successfully rebuild her current account to a million followers for a second time on February 14, 2020. In the midst of rebuilding her Instagram after it was deleted, Morgan was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and experienced her first full blow manic episode. It took months for her to recover, but once she did, she went straight back to work. Morgan hopes her legacy is one that inspires others to never give up, she says:
“It may feel like the end of the world, but there are people that do appreciate you and want the best for you- you’re never alone. No matter what you’re going through or what background you come from, it’s possible to do anything you set your mind to.”
Despite the difficult times, Morgan explains how the struggles she has endured throughout her life have only made her stronger and incredibly grateful for what she has today- a better life, loving friends and family, and a safe and stable future. Morgan’s courage and drive to pursue her goals has enabled her to live a life she always dreamed of and has helped her to secure a bright future for herself. She is an inspiration to entrepreneurs and influencers alike and hopes to encourage many people across the globe to chase their dreams and never give up. We wish Morgan the best in all her future endeavors.
