LATINAS THINK BIG NATIONAL TOUR

I was raised by the hardest working Latina entrepreneur on the planet.  She  baked and sold the most beautiful wedding, birthday and quinceañera cakes.  My mom also launched several home-based businesses selling hand-made crafts,  jewelry, Tupperware, Shaklee, Avon, Mary Kay, Home Interior, Princess House and managed to find the time to raise a family and help people in need in our community.   During the holidays she would make tamales  to share and for school fundraising.  Her drive and passion for entrepreneurship and social good lifestyle was passed on to my siblings and I.  As a child I use to watch her carry a notebook with lots of lists and wondered how to automate a lot of her administrative tasks of  setting up appointments, billing and collecting money.  I believe that is why I chose a career in Software Development & Engineering and I still code to automate a lot of my day to day technical tasks as a Telecommunications Engineer.

Today’s entrepreneurial Latina is a lot like yesterday’s savvy business woman, except we have a lot of tools at out disposal to automate and facilitate day to day tasks and enable us to focus on our goals.   Today’s Latina is entrepreneurial and Tech Savvy.  However, before many of us take the leap of faith to launch on our own or  to further our career path, we need  resources to help us build our networks and connect with like minded goal seekers.  We also need to sharpen our skills and  find communities with a solid foundation and support system.

 

ELLA Leadership Institute was born out of  similar drive and passion that is instilled in all hardworking and goal seeking Latinas.   ELLA Leadership Institute recently launched the  LATINAS THINK BIG™ national tour to inspire and showcase Latinas who are making a difference.     The second stop of a national and international TED-style tour showcasing innovative professional Latinas will be held on October 11.   I’m  really excited to attend the event and support the ELLA Institute initiatives as a Twitter Ambassador.  I will be joining over 150 attendees to connect  and celebrate Latinas who are breaking new ground.  I’m looking forward to the featured speakers and discussions about careers, business, entrepreneurship and innovation.   Whether you are planning on launching a business or need a word of encouragement from Latinas in Leadership, LATINAS THINK BIG event is for YOU.

The onsite event has SOLD-OUT.  However, you can join the conversation online via Google hangouts and Twitter and be a part of the life-changing virtual event.  I had the opportunity to join the historic LATINAS THINK BIG launch online and  felt like I had the best seats in the house.  I walked away with a lot of resources and inspiration to develop a business idea.   I also felt the presence of a sense of community among the attendees.

The Los Angeles tour was a historical event  and attended by over 100 empowered Latinas, including ten TWITTER AMBASSADORS.

Join Us For Help A Mother Out Facebook Chat #HAMO

Did you know 22% of all children under five years old in the U.S. live in poverty and one out of every three families struggle to afford diapers.  These statistics are overwhelming! Access to diapers is a critical resource because it helps prevent the spread of infectious diseases.   Healthy kids don’t have painful diaper rash, fever, loss of appetite or vomiting, herpes, staphylococci, urinary tract infections, jaundice or renal failure. Clean diapers make the whole family smile.

On Wednesday, March 6 at 11am several influential women will be joining forces for a Help A Mother Out, KarmaWell Facebook Chat.  We’ll be discussing parenthood and shopping (and charity too!)  It will be fun and good for your soul.

 

Help A Mother Out is a charity that is near and dear to my heart because they do so may positive things to help families in need.   Help a Mother Out (HAMO for short) was formed with $100 in the spring of 2009 in reaction to media reports about the economic crisis’s effect on young children, families, and mothers, in particular the growing numbers of homeless children and families in California. Reaching out to San Francisco Bay Area shelters, co-founders Lisa Truong and Rachel Fudge learned that the number-one need was not baby blankets, clothing, or even food but diapers—which are not covered under social-safety net programs like WIC or food stamps. So they decided to organize a Mother’s Day diapers-and-wipes donation drive to benefit a dozen agencies serving low-income and homeless families throughout California.  Today they collect and donate hundreds  of thousands of diapers to families in need.  1,042,452 diapers since May, 2009!

Last Minute Christmas Shopping Ideas and Best Buy #GiftsThatDo Twitter Party

For the past couple days I have been sharing my Holiday Gift Guide for Christmas and Three Kings Day.  If you still haven’t completed your shopping and you need last minute gift ideas to pick up, I’d like to invite you to take a look at my pinterest board as well for suggestions.

After Christmas, the Holidays are not over yet! I have many fond memories as a child celebrating Three Kings Day with traditional church service and the story of the Three Kings following the star to Bethlehem and presented their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the baby Jesus.   My mother would always wrap a small gift and place it under the tree to surprise us on January 6th.

As an adult, this holiday has a sentimental meaning to me because it reminds me about my childhood in Mexico and the traditions that we pass on from generation to generation.

Please join me on December 27, 2012 to discuss Three Kings Day traditions and gift ideas for your loved ones.  We’ll also be giving away Best Buy Gift cards!
