Leaders We Love: Moria Hazan

Feb 10, 2022

Moria is thorough, committed, and takes exceptional care of her clients. She loves high quality everything, and prioritizes realness and vulnerability in her relationships. We’ve been lucky enough to support her for 6 months through a business pivot and significant rebrand to align her business with her personal values, and show up as the leader she wants to be — not the authority figure she was taught she was ‘supposed’ to be. She’s come home to herself, created a brand that stands for what she believes in, and now has captivating messaging that more accurately captures the impact she has for her clients. We can’t wait for you to know her!


Who you are and what do you do?

I’m Moria; living and working in NYC as a marketing consultant for micro-experience businesses. I help brands pivot purposefully and expand their digital footprint through an all-inclusive strategic approach to position them in front of more of the people that they serve.


How do you define leadership?

To me leadership is a balance of being an example to others and being open to learning from the people around you and knowing that you don’t know everything. It’s removing the ego and saying, “I have so much to contribute and so much to gain”  and being confident in that rather than insecure or feeling the need to show up as omniscient which in the digital space can be translated as “expert” or “authority”. 


What’s one (yes, just one) thing you’re really good at?

I’m really great at helping my clients reconnect to their brand through redefining their business. I do that by asking hard questions which brings out the depth of their mission and reading between the lines when they speak and naming it when they can’t seem to find the words. (It may not sound like it but this actually describes one thing).


Tell us about a time when you realized this is what you were meant to do.

I’ve always thought I would be a doctor or a business-person. When I took an Anatomy & Physiology class in college I knew it wasn’t what turned me on. I was also a creative person and wanted to do all of the things so Marketing made the most sense. It was the perfect blend of creativity + strategy which really allowed me to use every part of my brain in a way that felt challenging and rewarding.


What’s one personal value you hold true in your business?

Compassion. When you can tap into someone else’s experience from their lens, you have a greater chance of building meaningful relationships. Relationships are key to our survival as humans and business owners.


What do you do when you’re not working?

Other than building a non-profit organization which I do during the work-day, I like spending quality time with my friends and family. When I need alone-time I love to work out and play tennis with my coach. I also enjoy binging a good show, online shopping, and furnishing my New York apartment.


What’s in your 10-year vision?

My vision has many options. I don’t know that I can plan that far ahead ever. My 5 year vision would include me starting a family and balancing that with a non-profit and a thriving business. I feel that will be enough for me. 


Who is one person who has shown you what’s possible in your life or business? What was the “see to believe” lesson they taught you? (This can be someone you know, someone you don’t know, or even a fictional character!)

My therapist. She’s really trying to drill it in me to have faith that things always work out. I’m a pretty Type A overachiever who needs to feel like I have a grip on everything. I have to intentionally slow down and let go and I’ve been better at it but it’s definitely my work. I have also seen first-hand that when you surrender, things do work out for you. It’s helped me a lot in business.


What’s one moment in your life that, looking back on, made you realize you would own your own business?

Since I was a little girl I imagined myself holding a briefcase and walking into board-meetings. I don’t know how or why but that was my vision. As I got older I did what I thought was “normal”. Went to college and worked all throughout (that part isn’t typical but I had to work). So I figured I would move my way up in corporate but what I truly wanted was to be the CEO. In the summer of 2019 I started a side-hustle agency as a way of moving on from an ex, and during the pandemic I took it full-time. Life brought me here. Hence the no 10-year visions. I had no idea this would be my life and I wouldn’t want it any other way now.


What are three things you always have on you (beside phone, wallet, keys)?

I never don’t have chapstick on me. And if I don’t, I’m thinking about it the whole time. I’m pretty minimal (by choice), I don’t have 3 additional things on me at all times.
