A Vision Board is just a Vision if you don’t have clarity or don’t know How to make it work for you!
A Vision and Dream Board are simples methods to help you stay Motivated, Inspired and to Help Your Dreams and Vision turn into reality!
Your brain will work tirelessly to achieve the statements you give your subconscious mind. And when those statements are the affirmations and images of your goals, you are destined to achieve them! – Jack Canfield
How did I start?
I started with a Vision at about the age of 14...
I created my first Vision Board around 94′ many people (back then) didn’t know much about boards.
I use to cut-out pictures from magazines, or would take pictures of things that inspired or things that I wanted to do, or from people! Unfortunately, I don’t have that Vision Board (got lost when we moved to Sacramento)…But my Vision and Mission never changed!
My Family and Life Vision were simple…
Like many little girls, I wanted to get married, have children and live in a small house with a “white picket’ fence.
Married my “longtime childhood friend”.
Bought our “small white picket fence” in 96′ at the young age of about 22.
We have our ideal family (4 beautiful children)
Remodeled my kitchen “designed it just like I wanted; custom cabinets, open concept, beautiful tile, etc)
Bought our ideal Toys (cash no financing); Jetski, 4 wheeler and SS (SS turned out to be a lemon, so dealer bought it back)
Bottom line everything I dreamed of when I was a young girl came to reality! Onto my Business Corporate Life.
My Business Life and Vision I come from a family of immigrants, we immigrated into the Country around 78′-79′. My father started his Upholstery Business in the late ’80s; he inspired me and motivated me and made me want to Be My Own Boss.
I’m a hard worker, go-getter, researcher and not afraid to take on a challenge! At the age of 14, I started working and love having and earning my own money. I worked in a variety of fields, sectors and by the time I was 17 I was working as an Office Manager for a Small Construction Business. So not only, seeing my father being his own boss, but working for a small to medium size business motivated me to continue working toward my Vision.
Started my Freelance business in 2000
Mid-2000 I turned my Freelance business into a Corporate Business
End of 2000, my business was now a Million Dollar business
End of 2000, I had over 2,500 contractors, over 10+ employees, contracts throughout the USA and abroad
I wanted to become a Top Notch interpreter and I achieved that by self-training and development and researching and I’m able to provide services to a variety of business sectors!
Wanted to live the “Lap Top” business life and I have and I am by incorporating services to make that Dream a reality
Hiring a Virtual Assistant, what you need to do before you decide to hire/contract/work/invest on a VA for you and your business.
Question: Your business is growing, right? Great!
But do you have the tools, processes, and procedures in place to hire/contract people in order to continue that growth without overwhelming yourself?
Well, now’s a great time to take charge and see where you may need help, as well as what processes and procedures you need to put in place to get this process started!
Here are somethings to ponder...
So, if your thoughts are to grow your business (today or in the future), you have to understand that it’s going to require lots and lots of work, if you want this contracting/recruiting process to work!
Things you must consider before you decide to hire employees, or recruit freelancers because (trust me), they will either “make you or break you”…YES, I SAID IT!
Also, keep in mind that it’s your responsibility not only to hire/contract employees, freelancers, contractors, management, etc., but it’s also your responsibility to train, mentor, but more importantly to have processes and procedures in place, because otherwise instead of moving forward you will be taking steps back!
💡TIP 1: Don’t line people up without having the right procedures in place.
💡Tip 2: Really understand your Biz growth and what you need and where you want to go.
💡Tip 3: Set your processes in place; recruiting, HR, administration, etc.
Lining people up before having processes in place will ONLY create chaos, confusion and in the long run problems.
Many of use don’t have an HR degree, or experience and therefore we may not be good in the whole recruiting and training process and that is why creating these processes and procedures will come in handy. (I created my own internal processes and procedures and therefore have been tested and proven to work effectively for all business sectors)
So, if you decide and envision your business growing, it is very, very important to have these procedures in place for each department, each staff member, etc.
These are just some basics to ponder, but it requires more than just this…
I hope you find these growth strategies helpful when you decided to hire help. These three simple tips make such a huge difference when it comes to getting the right person for the job, trust me, I’ve been there!

Are you losing sleep due to your small business goals? Well, you could be derailing your efforts to reach those goals faster. Sleep is crucial for your health and wellness — and even your success. So, here is how you can help yourself get more of it.
Your Tech Could Be Keeping You Up
Being a successful small business owner often means being attached to your laptop and smartphone. But if you make a habit of bringing those devices into your bedroom, you could be disrupting your sleep quality. The bright blue light emitted from cell phones, computers, tablets, and televisions prevents your brain from producing the melatonin needed to fall asleep soundly and stay there for enough time. Getting those devices out of your room is a good first step to enhancing your sleep levels. While most tech should be banished from your bedroom, some smart devices are actually made to help you sleep. If you have problems getting your business to-do list out of your head, using a noise machine can help calm your brain, or you could look into a vibrating alarm clock so you are not jolted out of your dreams by noise.
“Selfcare is so important for the daily and business life, so take care of yourself, we only have 1 life, so let’s take care of it the best we can! – Faviola”
Quality Sleep Is Key to Your Success
In business, a busy schedule is prized. However, if your schedule as an entrepreneur is getting in the way of your sleep hygiene, you could be impacting your success.
You need sleep in order to focus on getting your business up and running and to keep yourself healthy enough to do your best every day. So, freeing up some of that work time for more sleep can actually be more beneficial for your business.
If bouts of insomnia are keeping you up, know that sleeplessness is common among entrepreneurs too. All the emotions and thoughts that are racing through your head can make it hard to wind down, even when you schedule to sleep. If you cannot get the seven to eight hours you need every night, at least take steps to improve your sleep quality. Keep your bedroom cool and dark so you can get the most out of the rest you do get.
Your Night Routine Plays a Critical Role
Even if you get your tech out of the bedroom and schedule time for sleep, it still may not be enough.
Your nighttime habits before bedtime affect your sleep quality as much as what you do in your bedroom. Try winding down your work assignments earlier and getting into bed so that you can get an earlier beginning to your day.
If your usual nighttime routine includes checking emails and answering phone calls, you may need to adjust those practices too. In order to get the rest, you need to be successful, you have to guard your personal time.
Set out-of-office hours that will give you time to unwind before crawling into bed. Doing so from the start will help you maintain that positive balance between your work and life as you become more successful.
But Your Health Routines Have an Impact Too
The way you care for yourself during the day matters just as much too.
For example, many entrepreneurs reach for the most convenient food and beverages to keep themselves going. Before you reach for that high-fat snack, however, you should know that it could end up keeping you awake.
More fat and processed foods in your diet can lead to disruptions in necessary sleep processes, as well as digestive issues that can make you too uncomfortable to sleep. An imbalanced gut can lead to an upset stomach, constipation, and other problems that can make it harder to sleep. So, think about meal prepping some healthier options, and also consider getting in daily workouts, which will help you sleep better too.
Sleep is not an option, especially if you hope to start and run your own small business. Your brain needs sleep in order to focus and get those crucial business tasks done. So, if you are looking for long-term sleep as an entrepreneur, make sure that better sleep hygiene is listed on your shortlist of life and business goals.
