As I continue my journey in life and business, there are several key principles that help me and guide me and can help your path as well.

Authenticity

Stay true to yourself and your values. Authenticity attracts genuine connections and builds trust with your audience and clients.

Purpose

Keep your purpose at the forefront of your decisions. Align your actions with your deeper mission to create meaningful impact and fulfillment.

Balance

Prioritize balance in all aspects of your life. Strive for harmony between work, family, health, and personal growth to sustain long-term success and happiness.

Resilience

Expect setbacks and challenges along the way. Cultivate resilience to overcome obstacles, learn from failures, and emerge stronger than before.

“As an undocumented immigrant (at the time) my permit had expired and could not get a “normal job” with a family I had to make things work, so in 2000, I decided to take the leap of faith and start my own business.”

Simplicity

Keep things simple and focused. Streamline your priorities, processes, and offerings to avoid overwhelm and maintain clarity in your journey.

Exploring

With researching & exploring I quickly learned that I could use my bilingual and office skills & experience to start my own business.  With hard work, trial & error I was able to start and build a six-figure business in under a year! 

Foundation

By creating the right steps, and foundation & following a plan I was able to take my vision & build a unique language & coaching business. I’ve been able to help break the language and business gap and also help others achieve their goals & dreams.  

Simple and Fun

Just keep it simple! Find something you love and are passionate about, and be able and willing to work hard, and do the work, so that you can get the freedom (play hard) you deserve,  independence, and earn your worth (money, dinero, mula) all while doing what you love!

By embracing these principles, you too can navigate your life and business journey with purpose, resilience, and authenticity, creating a legacy of impact and fulfillment

"The Rise, The Fall, The Comeback"

My journey is a testament to the power of determination and resilience. Over two decades ago, within the confines of my humble bedroom, I embarked on a path that would ultimately lead me to establish one of California’s most prominent language services enterprises. It wasn’t a choice but a necessity—my work permit had expired, leaving me unable to provide for my family. Faced with the responsibility of helping my husband, and son, and meeting our financial obligations, I ventured into the world of interpreting and translation, carving my path to success.

My journey was marked by incredible success. From building a corporate empire from scratch to overseeing a vast network of freelancers, employees, and offices across the globe, I seemed to have it all. But amidst the glittering achievements, I realized something vital was missing—myself.

Then, in 2009, life intervened, offering a wake-up call that couldn’t be ignored. I suffered a severe auto accident [leaving me severely injured] months later my middle child suffered an accident leaving him in a body cast, I was also pregnant and almost lost my princess [high levels of cholestasis and stress] forcing me to be admitted and deliver early. If life couldn’t get worse just weeks after my baby was born my father was diagnosed with glioblastoma and I lost him three months later. 

There were so many signs for me to quit but I didn’t.  That was until finally after the passing of my father I made a pivotal decision to step away from the corporate world, reclaim my life, prioritize self-care, and reconnect with my purpose, but more importantly, heal from everything that I had suffered in a matter of a year. The pain and suffering was a painful, yet transformative journey that led me back to the basics, back to what truly mattered. Love, self-care, and doing what I loved on my terms, but more importantly prioritizing family, health, and love!

From the ashes of my corporate venture emerged a renewed vision—to provide personalized, high-quality services that make a genuine difference. Transitioning to an online platform, I refocused on what truly drives me—bridging communication and business gaps with integrity and passion.
