ABOUT ME

Dream. Hustle. Achieve. = More money. freedom.

The entrepreneurship journey hasn’t been easy it’s been a stressful, and scary journey, but as a wife, and mother I learned to face my fears head-on, after all, we don’t have a mommy/wifey manual…

Despite everything I’ve gone through as an entrepreneur and all the bumps along the road; failures, successes, and downfalls, in the end, I’ve risen throughout this chaotic journey and so can you.

Being a self-trained entrepreneur, I’ve learned that as long as you have the right tools, resources, training, and a go-getter attitude there’s nothing you can’t do…And as your Business Coach and Interpreter Trainer, I’m here to share all my inside secrets with you, so you don’t have to go through the same struggles and challenges alone.  I’m taking everything that works in business and I’m sharing it with you!

Hi, my name is Faviola

California-based, Latina, and minority woman-owned certified DVBE small business. An immigrant from Michoacán Mexico, and proud (Purhépecha).

Faviola is a former CEO and six-figure multi-passionate entrepreneur who broke the language and business barriers who MPowers others to achieve their entrepreneurial goals. She’s also the founder of the Boss Up and Rise Online Podcast, The CEO Hustler, and Elite Services 4 You!

A few words about me

From the inception of my business, I envisioned building a business unique to this industry, one that is able to make a difference to the people we serve. With the help of my team and amazing vendors, I’ve been able to accomplish this dream, but more importantly provide professional, ethical, and excellent services to all my clients for over 21 years.

However, I quickly learned that if you want to accomplish your dream there’s simply no better way to put it…

You have to find something you love and are passionate about doing, be able and willing to work hard so that you are able to get the freedom (play hard) you deserve,  independence, and earn your worth (money, dinero, mula) all while doing what you love!

You see, I wasn’t always a Business Owner, CEO, or Entrepreneur, but just like you, I started with a dream that quickly became a reality.

In 2000 I learned that I had the opportunity to start my own business using my bilingual and business skills.  I took the leap of faith and managed to build a six-figure business from the ground up working with small to fortune 500 companies across multiple business sectors, had a team of ten, offices across the USA, and recruited, and trained a cadre of over 2,500 interpreters and translators in under a year!

What makes me so awesome?

Well, I’m a wife (to my amazing husband of 32 yrs ‘childhood sweetheart’), and mother to 4 amazing kiddos (proud Navy mom), soon to be a grandma. I’m the daughter to immigrant parents, sister to 5 brothers (yes, I survived their craziness), a proud granddaughter to indigenous abuelitos, and I can’t forget my 12 chickens, 4 Pitbulls, and a duck! And yes, I still managed to start and grow a business, crazy, right?!…

As business owners, we go through ups/downs, but despite the struggles, challenges, chaos, ups, downs, and craziness of the real world; recession, pandemic, life, and business challenges you’ll find me still working remotely – traveling, enjoying the outdoors; hiking, camping, jet skiing, four-wheeling, and enjoying life from where ever I  want!.

Finally, I couldn’t and would not be here if it wasn’t for my family who supported me throughout my journey, my clients who believe in me and entrust me with their business, but also my students who look to me and put their trust in me to help them start and grow their career and business…I want to say THANK YOU!

My Family

In case you’re new here, my name is Faviola and my friends call me Favi.  I’m an immigrant born in the early 70s in Michoacán Mexico.  I was brought into this Country in 79′ (through no fault of my own),  was raised in San Jose, CA, but now live in Sacramento, CA.  Furthermore, I’m a married woman and mother to 4 amazing children, but also a proud Navy Mom.

And in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family traveling, and enjoying the outdoors; hiking, skiing, camping, jet skiing, and just having fun!

As a young girl, I always dreamed of having my own business and in 2000 I was able to achieve that dream.  I  used my skills and passion and found something that I loved and enjoyed and well here I am 21yrs later still doing what I love!

“Being an Entrepreneur means creating a life you enjoy and love and being able to work when you want from wherever you want and just enjoying life!” …

My Quick Life & Business Story..."The Fall, Rise, and Comeback"

From employee to CEO

The Rise

Founded in 2000, Faviola launched her freelance business, and after 3 short months and landing six-figure contracts, she decided to transition into the Corporate World.  That Corporate Business quickly became her full-time career and business and path to financial freedom!

By 2001, her agency became a leader in providing high-quality professional language services in over 100 languages worldwide. She managed to grow her business from a solopreneur to 10 employees, 2,500+ subcontractors, multiple six-figure contracts, and virtual offices across the USA.

The Fall

For over 10 years her language agency was the Go-To-Place and One-Stop-Shop for all Language Service needs; interpreting and translation services locally and abroad.

However, things quickly took a turn for the worst and after the economy collapsed in 2008 and due to unforeseen personal reasons she decided to close down her agency.  Read more (Lessons Learned throughout my Business).

Despite the fall, the problems, and struggles all she needed was some time off, time to reflect and to realize that her Journey WAS NOT OVER, that she had to finish what she started, and that she couldn’t give up, that she had to keep pushing and find a solution to all her problems…NOTHING IS OVER UNTIL YOU SAY IT’S OVER!

” The Comeback™️”

So, by 2010 Faviola decided to restructure, reanalyze, and go back to the drawing board in order to re-start her business.  After all, she loved her business, the joy it brought her, and she enjoyed it so much, and she was “damn good at it!”

In 2011, Faviola decided to re-open her business, but as a virtual business – working from home. Working from home would allow her to continue to do what she loved; “Break the Language Barrier in Communication, and bridging the Business Gap” by continuing to provide Interpreting, Translation, Business Coaching, and Interpreter Training for all businesses and sectors (at a much lower scale and only in her native language).

Although, my past still haunts me and “haters will always try to bring (me) you down” one thing I did realize and came to terms that my past WILL NOT define MY FUTURE and it shouldn’t define yours!

Remember: –Business life hasn’t been easy, but when you create and use proven steps, strategies, and processes things tend to be so much easier, Faviola-

21 years later I still get to do what I love all while enjoying my family and more importantly – on my own terms!
