Business Entrepreneur Feature: Initials Inc

I recently attended the Initials, Inc West Coast tour launch.  Initials, Inc was founded by two moms, Britney Vickery and Ivy Hall,  who wanted to be there for their families, but also wanted to have successful careers.   They created a handbags, personalized products and home organization company that has rapidly grown into a multi-million dollar company within 8 years.  Their passion for entrepreneurship launched a nation-wide company that is slated to be a 400 million dollar company!

Adore the Initials Inc. Signature Collection Bag!

After their success in the midwest and south, the company made a decision to bring the product line and business opportunity to other women and launched a direct selling business.  The company grew so fast they decided to bring the products to the West Coast.

As a Social Entrepreneur I can definitely relate to their story of a passion to connect others and building  a successful  entrepreneurial dream.  After finding out about their story, I decided to create the “Business Entrepreneur Feature” on the blog to feature other women and men who are doing remarkable things to build businesses.

It was great to meet Pat Sheehan - National Field Development Director at Initials, Inc

Initials Inc Product line

The products at Initials Inc are durable and trendy.  I especially love their Initials, Inc Signature bags and scarfs.   I am also in love with the quality of the materials the products are made of as well as the affordable prices.  There were many women from Southern California present to learn about the business and how they could start a home-based business as well.

Initials Inc tablet covers & laptop covers

Absolutely loved this scarf!

 

Since the business is in its early stages in the West Coast, women who join now will have the opportunity to grow their business rapidly.  This year Initials Inc celebrated it’s 8 year anniversary.

 

If you are looking to build a flexible business on your own, make sure to take a look at Initials Inc.  Visit Initials Inc Corporate Offices online  to view the Style Book, Host A Party and/or  to start your own business at Initials Inc.

To celebrate the launch in the West Coast, Initials Inc is offering one of my readers an Initials Inc Signature Collection bag.  You have the opportunity to win it by participating in the giveaway below:

Lo Que La Vida Me Robo Character Introduction and Giveaway

Disclosure:  This post was created in partnership with the Stiletto Blogger Network and Univision. However, all opinions expressed herein are my own. 

As I mentioned earlier this week, Univision recently announced their new telenovela,  ”Lo Que La Vida Me Robo”.  The Mexican telenovela will  capture your attention by telling the  story of  love, laughter, betrayal and wealth in the small town of aguazul.  The Mexican telenovela is also full of interesting characters that will keep you entertained.

I’m looking forward to the new novela and plan to use the Univision UVideos app to stay connected with the telenovela and host of characters.  Tune in to Lo Que La Vida Me Robo weekenights at 9pm on Univision. I recommend you check out the app or videos as well and download the app to get insider information on your favorite character too.

Can’t wait? You can find a  plethora of juicy clips to keep you busy on their dedicated novelas video page.  

Lo Que La Vida Me Robo unfolds in Aguazul, a picturesque village where Montserrat Mendoza, a socialite lives.   The telenovela scenes are surrounded my breathtaking architecture, design and views.

My favorite character is Nadia Medina Arguelles, a smart and distinguished socialite.  Nadia starts her married life full of hopes and expectations, but soon realizes she is trapped in a cold marriage.   Nadia desires to find love and seeks refuge in the arms of Victor Hernandez. Her close friend, Montserrat is willing to make any sacrifice for her family and is eventually manipulated by her mother, Graciela Giacinti, to marry a rich man.

The characters are involved in a classic love triangle and experience love, friendship, passion, contempt and resentment between them, because of secrets, betrayal and hatred caused by the greed and avarice of those around them.    Make sure to watch “Lo Que La Vida Me Robo” telenovela to find out Montserrat’s and Nadia’s fate.  The telenovela will have you on the edge of your seat every evening!

To celebrate the Telenovela, Univision is offering one of my readers a $50 American Express Card!  You have the opportunity to win it by participating in the giveaway below:

Celebrating Latin BillBoard Music With A Playlist #SeHablaMusica

Music has always been a part of my life.  As a youth I danced in dance choreography and learned to use music and dance as a way to express my emotions and creativity.  As an adult I have taken dance lessons and enjoy Zumba fitness dance.  Last month  I watched and shared the Latin Billboard Finalist and Winners lists  and favorite performances.   Billboard Latino awards night went to Don Omar.  However, my favorite performances were Jenni Rivera Tribute and Marc Anthony.

 To celebrate the special music event Target provided me with a giftcard to share my love of music and favorite artist from Latin Billboard.    One of the reasons I  love watching music awards is to watch my favorite singers come under one roof to celebrate their love of music.   It’s also a great opportunity to gather with family and create a list of new artists to add to my iphone playlist.


Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. 

Music and dance are a part of my life and will always be a part of my life.  Regardless of your age, we can all celebrate life with some rhythmic latin tunes.  I really can’t imagine my life without music… Could you?

Here is a playlist with the songs from my favorite performers I made for my Zumba dance fitness.  Hope you enjoy it.

 

Giveaway

To celebrate latin music, Target has also graciously offerred one of my readers a $25 Gift card.   Please follow the instructions to enter to win.
