Start Your Own Interpreting or General Business

Are you like many people who want to start your #OWNBUSINESS but don’t know how, or don’t know when, or it’s to much work, or say “I’ll do it tomorrow”…

STOP THE NON-SENSE and STOP PROCRASTINATING and GET IT DONE!!!

DON’T DO THIS THE NEXT DAY:

I WANT TO DO THIS…
I HAVE THIS AWESOME IDEA…
I WILL DO IT TOMORROW, FOR SURE…
HOW CAN I START IT?…

These things are what really, really annoy me…People who come to me and ask me for advice, ask me on how to do it, but days, weeks, months go by and they still have NOT TAKEN ACTION! Bottom line, if you are NOT serious then please DON’T WASTE MY TIME!

These types of people are the ones that are always saying “poor me, life is hitting me hard, life never gives me time to breathe, I want to but I don’t have time, etc”…

Excuse after excuse, they will always be the victim and everyone is out to get them, but no one is there to help them!

They think they are the ONLY ones struggling, hurting, or going through hard times; well let me tell you – difficult times, struggles and hurting is what got me off my butt and got me TO DO SOMETHING to better my life and my families! NO EXCUSES!!!

Enough with the BS!!! Maybe, just maybe you are:

  • Lazy
  • Non-motivated
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Not confident
Just be honest and ask yourself, Do I want to move ahead? If you say yes, well GREAT JOB for being honest, so now it’s time to MAKE A CHANGE and MAKE A DIFFERENCE in yourself!
As an Entrepreneur, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve procrastinated, I’ve made excuses after excuses, I failed, but GUESS WHAT???

I NEVER GAVE UP ON MY DREAM! I #BossUpandRise

Throughout my years in business, I like many others who didn’t have the money to hire or contract a Business Coach I had to research, trial and error and do things myself, so yes – I made many, many mistakes! I had to re-do things over and over, had to change domain names, business names, business structure, etc…but again –
I NEVER GAVE UP because I knew someday I would get it right!
Here I am 16+ years later still in business and sharing my experiences with you and hope to be able to help you achieve your goal, on a budget, on time and get your business rolling in no time!!!
Few things to remember:
  • Write down your business idea
  • Write down your plans, put your ideas in writing
  • Set your Goals
  • Be consistent
  • Take action
  • Be patient
  • Have Faith
  • Never, never lose Hope

No matter what business you decide to start with my services you will be on your way to being #selfemployed #entrepreneur #businessowner

Interpreter Training & Skills Development

the ceo hustler helping you boss up and rise

By Faviola Valencia

Have you ever wondered, if your “bilingual employee, staff interpreter” speaks, understands and is actually interpreting or saying everything you say “word for word”?

“Just because you speak a second language , it doesn’t make you a Professional Interpreter”

I guess that’s the million dollar question, that many of you are asking yourselves now? ūü§Ēūüėä

Many employers think that using a “Bilingual” staff member in their business is going to SAVE them $$…but let me tell you that is so far from the TRUTH!

 

A Bilingual person maybe able to help you and your customers communicate basic things…”How’s your day, what are you doing, what do you have plan, what are your tasks, basic things”…

 

However, if your conduction an employee evaluation, employee meeting, benefits meetings, client/attorney meeting, medical evaluation, etc you will need the services of a Professional AND Experienced Interpreter.

Many companies, employers, businesses think that just because a person is “bilingual”, they are competent to provide Professional Interpreting services?

 

That is so NOT TRUE! Don’t put your Business at Risk (to SAVE MONEY) in the long run it will end up costing you 1000s of dollars, if you don’t hire/contract an experienced professional.

In order to be a Professional Interpreter, NOT ONLY do you need to be Fluent in both the Source language but also the Target language, but more importantly you need to know:

  • What it takes; Basic Interpreting Skills
  • What to do; Roles and Functions¬†
  • And your Responsibilities
  • And so much more; Ethics, Standards and Protocols, etc

That is why I’ve made it my Mission since the inception of my Business to be the difference…

 

I am different because I Love What I Do, I take pride in What I offer, but more importantly I want to Help Break the Language Barrier in Communication and provide Top-Notch services (the way my daddy taught me!)

 

So, if you have in-house bilingual staff and want to use them as “interpreters” I invite you to check out my Interpreter Training to help you and your staff, employees and potential interpreters ¬†get trained, and become a Professional Bilingual In-house Interpreter.

As you know our Country is continuously evolving and parents may speak no English or limited English, therefore making it difficult to understand any matters involving their children’s education.  And, we all know that parents are empowered by the process when the language barrier is taken away, making it easier and more likely for them to actively participate in their children’s education.

Throughout the years I’ve had the pleasure in providing the following services to various Schools / Districts.
