Domestic Violence Welfare Mom to 2 time U.S. SBA Awarded Web Tech Co-founder/CEO: Advocate for Entrepreneurs and Consumers

2019 makes it twenty years since Angelina Bosch Musik-Comp fled her domestic violence situation in San Antonio, Texas to Tacoma, WA with her two kids and celebrates 29 years of helping enterprising women succeed in business through MOMtrepreneurs she founded in 1990, now launching as Business Women News in 2020.

Musik owns the largest privately held web content syndication network she started developing in 2003 liken to the top three broadcasts networks NBC, CBS and ABC. and is the first entrepreneur awarded twice by the U.S. Small Business Administration (1) (2) for her work in converging traditional media and marketing with web technology to help increase the visibilty of enterprising women in business

Her own radio show and TV show content distributed across the internet back then resulted in Mark Burnett Productions calling her to participate in The Apprentice 3: Book Smarts vs. Street Smarts. This would not be realized due to a traumatic brain injury she suffered five days before a taping in San Antonio, Texas.

2020 is her comeback year after being out of the public eye for the last fifteen years to heal her brain, marriage and continue to invent and innovate alongside her husband Daniel Comp.

Her comeback of significance is focused on increasing the visibility of authentic entrepreneurs while creating a strategy to offset the foot print of what she calls enterprising predators: the licensed incompetent and imposters who hurt and confuse consumers.

Her launch includes promoting her Wellness by Choice Project and Enterprising Women's Project starting January 2020 which includes the Wellness by Choice Book.

In 2003, Musik infused MOMtrepreneurs with the innovation of her media, marketing and web technology company, co-owned with husband Daniel Comp.

A year later she was awarded twice by the U.S. Small Business Administration for converging web technology, her tv and radio shows, events and classical marketing strategies to help entrepreneurs succeed greater.

Summer of 2004, she was invited to participate in the Apprentice 3 Season of ’Street Smarts vs. Book Smarts'.  Unfortunately, this opportunity would not be realized after she suffered a traumatic brain injury five days before filming.  However, that October fall season she’d achieve a 4.1 rating for her Angelina TV Show on PAXTV's network before retiring it to heal from her traumatic brain injury. 

Struggling through her brain injury recovery she eventually faded out of the public eye and in 2009 left San Antonio and moved to the Pacific Northwest with her husband Daniel to heal her herself and their marriage.

"No marriage escapes one of the its members experiencing a health challenge at some point and the challenges which come with it.  We chose to get help and mature through our challenges, and will continue for the rest of our lives together. June 1, 2019 we celebrated our 20th anniversary."

Musik credits her husband Daniel as her team mate who deserves just as much credit for what she's been recognized for. It was their different strengths combined that empowered her to succeed and his support which gave her the freedom to be the inventor at heart.

"I want to etch his name in all the awards and recognitions I recieved. We achieved, not just me."


Musik’s back story includes being born in Munich, Germany as Angelina Bosch to a German teen mom and biological dad she still doesn’t know, though from Oklahoma City she was told. 

Around three years old she was adopted by her step-dad, Francisco Q. Aguon, from Guam. He worked at the U.S. Army hospital in Germany and managed the movie theatre on base while her mom, Hermine, worked at the German Patent Office in München, Germany.

Musik credits her dad for her initial confident based entrepreneurial skills that she practiced as young as she can remember.  At fourteen, her family moved to San Antonio, Texas in 1978 and resumed living on the military base where while attending private schools excelling in mathematics, science and the arts.

"Dad was raised in Guam on a farm with ten siblings. They had to learn how to survive creatively.  Growing up, I remember us driving around the military base on trash day in our avocado green station wagon finding treasures we'd refurbish into an asset to trade for something else he and mom wanted.  Our home was eclectic with collectables.

Dad managed the movie theatre where I spent many hours as I had few friends and bullied a lot. It wasn't popular to have a brown dad during that time historically.  Watching films is where I learned the power of one to many through storytelling and entertainment.  The impact one could have in people's lives through performance and media."

Fast forward, Musik launches MOMtrepreneurs in 1990 as a mother of a three and five-year-old while running her private registered home day care called Angelina's House.  Here she designed a low stress and highly profitable business model around raising her kids. Soon, she was teaching other moms to do so likewise. 

“MOMtrepreneurs started on the playgrounds where I informally coached moms on how to monetize their talents now, not just talk about it in the future. Decide, start it and execute it!”

As Musik’s own two children started school Angelina’s House went from full time to after school care freeing her up to launch Heavenly Help, a private concierge organizing, cleaning, and life coaching service while leading praise and worship at two churches in Houston, Texas.

“I love facilitating makeovers in people’s lives.  Providing clarity where there is confusion, order where there is chaos and insight through what I've learned and have overcome through my own life experiences.”

As a former thespian in high school and theater director she was engaged in creating new life stories, including her own.

When Musik retired Angelina’s House she went full time with Heavenly Help an decided to start investing in funding her first Christian Pop Album she wrote the songs for and produced.  Her single ‘Give You Rest’ achieved radio airplay mostly in Europe.

After stepping down from being a full-time church worship leader she started a band while continuing to struggle through her difficult marriage while raising her two kids.  

In 1999, after thirteen years, she fled her domestic violent marriage in San Antonio, Texas to reboot in safety in WA State with her two kids with the the help of Daniel Comp who would become her best friend, husband and support system.

“Entrepreneurship helped fund me myself forward into a better life. It gave me the flexibility to raise my kids around my marital chaos and with more financial control than a job.  It empowered me to plan, fund and leave an unhealthy and dangerous relationship and step into a new life!”

June 1, 1999, Musik rolled into a new life in WA State and adopted a new role as one of the youngest and first female CEO’s of a web technology company at that time at the age of thirty-three while still in hiding with her kids from her ex-husband. 

With the financial support of Pierce County’s YWCA and WA state's WorkFirst Program, in Tacoma, WA she continued teaching herself programming which she had started a few years earlier in secret in Houston, Texas.

“When I married my first husband, I was very insecure.  I was in college pursuing a degree in business while doing modeling gigs and holding personal development workshops for the youth.   Once we got married he (Scott) impressed upon me to quit college to start a family.  It was the ‘Christian thing to do’ I was told.  I was happy to become a wife and mom yet struggled with pausing my education and dreams I wanted to pursue.  As a self-taught individual I believed that as long as I had access to educational resources I’d eventually achieve those dreams!”

Musik pulled from her background in business and theatre performance and designed integrative strategies while treating her clients like 'talent', as experts in their niches.  She would train and pitch them to the media and position them online at the intersections where people, their audience, were searching for what they offered.

Initially, Musik and husband, Daniel Comp, were hired as the out of the box innovative web technology providers to corporate companies like UPS, Starbucks, Raytheon, and others.  By 2001, they decided to leave the corporate client world and to focus on empowering small business owners and micro-enterprises.  Their philosophy was based on customer empowerment not webmaster monk bondage.

As female CEO of a web tech company in the early 2000s, Musik had no idea why people would challenge their unique capabilities, which she and Comp deemed in the best interest of clients.  Back then, web designers created websites one page at a time whereas Musik’s websites would auto generate new pages within minutes. 

“I was treated as if I was selling snake oil when I shared with a business owner that we could build their new website in less than a week when web companies where taking months.  This uniqueness was not trusted.  Looking back, I might have unintentionally made business owners feel foolish for not knowing that they were being overcharged and under delivered to. I just wanted something better for them.”

After her two radio and TV shows, Musik applied her broadcast and syndication concept and web programming development to client’s projects without their knowledge to test how it would increase their sales.  She likened it to a media network with affiliate stations, which could achieve a higher rate of relevant engagements or conversions.

Education based marketing was the objective through this strategy.  Reach, teach, impact and attract the right customers to the right products and right places where they were already searching for help.

Eventually, husband Comp designed efficiencies to accommodate his wife’s continued development and together named their platform a web fractal after watching a tribute to Benoit Mandelbrot, a polish mathematician known as the father of fractals.  Fractal, a form of geometric repetition.

To date Musik controls the largest privately own digital content distribution or syndication network across the U.S. created for the sole purpose to increase the visibility of authentic and integrity filled enterprises while reducing the footprint of what she coins as 'enterprisig predators'.

"At the end of the day, my greatest achievements are being a wife and best friend to Daniel, and a mom to my two kids, Scotiana and Christian, and a friend to Daniel’s kids, David and Carissa.  That together Daniel and I will have paved a better road beyond our personal adventures we've grown through together.
