Financial and Insurance Services, My parents retired with $1100 combined income and I was headed in the same direction depending solely on Social Security. I decided to take the leap of faith and start my own business.
How do you overcome challenges and stay motivated?
1. I think of all the millions of people I have not impacted yet.
2. There is no Plan B
3. I plan to win in life not to just live day by day.
What is an important lesson you’ve learned as a female latinx entrepreneur?
Even if you are the only one in the room full of men, give it all you got because even though I was scared at times of not being “good enough” I am.
