on the job: mai tran

Mai Tran is a self-identified “hyper-tasking entrepreness”. As the Owner not one but two businesses (Crave Portland and Rouz Marketing) she’s rarely, if ever, standing still.

"I love to be productive," says Mai, "I'm always looking for new ways to increase efficiency". She stays up late catching up on emails, allowing only 10 conversations or less to accumulate in her InBox. “I never knew that I could get paid to be OCD,” jokes Mai.

She maintains a hectic schedule to say the least. Mai works from home, local coffee shops or even in her car in between meetings. Some of Mai’s closest friends are her "BlackBerry, iPhone and MacBook", according to her.

Networking is a huge part of her livelihood. Mai has a packed social calendar almost every day of the week. And when she needs time away from it all? She hangs out with her beloved pups (in style, of course).

A native Portlander, Mai is passionate about connecting people, whether local business owners or consumers. She is excited to see the local community successfully rising together.

As a key part of the fashion community (in addition to assisting retailers, small business owners, and gobs of other people) we are oh so lucky to have Mai here in Portland.
