Hi Beautiful. My name is Veena V
I’m an award-winning Radio Presenter turned Entrepreneur
I started working as a cleaner at the age of 14, landed my first radio presenting job at 16 and I currently run several online businesses around my hyperactive little boy.
So many people talk about their dreams but they never do anything about it.
That’s why my mission through all my brands is to boost people’s confidence & really encourage them to take action on what they want to acheive.
If you have a dream, you really need to give it all you’ve got – no excuses.
What Do I Do?
VIDEO & YOUTUBE TRAINING
I love helping businesses to become more confident and creative with making their own social media videos. I’ve already trained hundreds of startups about the power of online video through workshops, consulting and through my online courses.

Plus I put on meet ups in London; friendly & positive women come together to chat and listen to guest speakers. The atmosphere is always amazing. Click here to find out when the next one is
I also run Real Mauritius – a travel blog all about the paradise island of Mauritius (I wish I was lying by the pool right now!) Myself and my Dad have 2 double bedroom apartments in the North East of the island, perfect for relaxing as its only a 5 minute walk from the beach
Previous to my businesses I had been working in the media industry for over a decade as a Radio & TV Presenter.
I won an award from Channel 4 for ‘Best Radio Presenter’, attracted more than 100,000 listeners to one of my radio shows and hosted events to thousands of people in London’s, Trafalgar Square.
I’ve interviewed celebrities like Nicole Scherzinger, 50 Cent and Alesha Dixon. Plus I’ve even been hired to present someone’s wedding video!
My Career from the start
I started my radio career at the age of 15, when I was picked to be one of the last 22 contestants out of thousands in the London’s 95.8 Capital FM’s radio star competition, the winner was given the opportunity to present their own show on the station to over a million listeners. Unfortunately, I didn’t win but it made me even more determined to break into the radio industry.
At 16, I started a work experience placement at Oxford’s 107.9FM. The tea making paid off (horray!), as I was offered to present the 1-6am slot. My dreams came true when I was given my very own show 6 days a week. I worked my way up and was soon presenting and producing peak time shows at the weekend.
At 17, I was featured in a national book called Money Money Money, which highlighted the fact that I was at college studying for A Level Law, English Language & Literature and Business Studies whilst presenting on local radio and having a part time job; a very busy schedule for a teenager.
Just after turning 18, I achieved grades A, A and B in my A Level results.
Having postponed going to university, I wanted to further my radio career by moving to a London based station. No one believed I could achieve moving from a small village in Oxfordshire and land a paid job in London but I was determined to succeed.
I sent a demo to a London based station called Club Asia Radio, within 24 hours I was called in for an interview.
Since joining Club Asia, my radio shows became highly popular achieving record figures of more than 107,000 listeners. Listeners described me as a ‘breathe of fresh air’ and their ‘role model
‘ which was very unexpected and slightly overwhelming. I was just so happy to be presenting a live music show, 6 times a week and I worked extremely hard.
Later in my career I won “Best Radio Presenter” at the Channel 4 (4 talent) awards. At 21, I was the youngest winner and also only female to be nominated in my category.
In 2009, I then joined Wedding TV (a TV channel on Sky) to host their flagship programme `The Shaadi Show`. It was my first major TV Presenting role and I got to visit some of the best wedding venues in the UK. Wasn’t bad for my first stint in TV land as I also got to film a show in the Bahamas!
Moving forward I continued presenting, blogging and producing. Here’s an interview I did for the MOBO awards
At the age of 21, I found out I was pregnant and my life took a huge turn. I left an abusive relationship, moved back in with my parents and became severely depressed with strong suicidal thoughts.
You can read more of my personal story on the Mum To Millionaire blog
In 2011, I moved back to London, now a single Mum with a 2 year old. My work in the media industry dried up and I started working as a receptionist in the city. I had no other choice. No money and a mortgage to pay.
Fed up of the 9-5 and my son being in childcare everyday, where his behaviour was erratic, I quit and slowly ventured into the world of business
In 2015 I set up Mum To Millionaire, which started off as just a podcast to give Mums realistic business advice
In 2016 I launched the YT CLUB Tripods & started training businesses on how to use Youtube to build their brands online
Now in 2017 I run 3 businesses including Real Mauritius, a youtube channel providing the best information about visiting the paradise island
That’s my story so far and I feel completely honoured you read all of that!
Wishing you so much happiness & success,
Veena V xx
