Lessons Learned Throughout my Business
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
TRUE STORY📖 I started my business in 2000 all with a Dream & Vision, but NEVER in my wildest dreams did I think I had it in me to build a Top-Notch Corporate Business, but I did it! (I built a 6-figure business in less than 3-months)😱
▶️I didn’t have a plan, BUT…
▶️I did have a Vision & Dream
▶️I didn’t have a degree, but had tons of experience in Business!
▶️ I never let ANYTHING STOP ME 🛑 or get in my way to succeeding!
But then something happened…
“The Rise, The Fall, The ComeBack, I am Faviola #TheCEOHustler”
Life happened; I suffered an auto accident while coming back from San Francisco, CA. I had all 3 of my kids in the car with me when we got rear-ended and I almost lost my small child, but Thank God, he’s OK, unfortunately, I ended up with severe neck/back/tissue/tendon injuries (still suffer from these same pains)!
A few months after we were at the Lake (our favorite place to relax) where unfortunately our middle child suffered a severe fracture (Jetski injury) and was in a body cast (femur fracture) for months!!!
And, if things couldn’t get worse I was pregnant (which it’s supposed to be the best time for a mother, right?) unfortunately for me it was such a horrible time and such a bad experience because I almost lost my Baby Girl due to a bad pregnancy due to (severe cholestasis), I was in/out of hospital 🏥 for 6-months until finally my husband couldn’t handle me anymore and had to get me hospitalized (admitted into hospital) for care and treatment and well my daughter was finally born (premature baby at only 32 weeks), but as you all see from my family pics thank God she’s a beautiful miracle princess!
Unfortunately during this same time frame, my father was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, we were so devastated with everything going on…I was recovering from Auto Accident, Son in Body Cast, then I got pregnant 🤰 almost lost my daughter all while my poor father was slowly dying from Brain 🧠 Cancer and all while the economy was collapsing…S*** 💩was literally happening all at once!
⚠️Unbeknown to us the business was also starting to go downhill all due to these
⚠️”Life Situations and Unforeseen Circumstances)!
⚠️And of course, things just got worse I started getting sued left & right, getting harassed, threatened (interpreter literally coming to my home threatening me!!!
😢) who FREAKING DOES THAT?!!! I had 100s of clients who owed me money 💵 who were not paying, the government shutdown affected my business so000 bad, yet I wasn’t at my client’s homes/doors/place of business harassing them or threatening them, but hey we are ALL DIFFERENT, RIGHT?!
And then S*** 💩😢happened my father passed📿 all while on verge of losing my house, losing everything I worked so hard for 💔no money, in pain, sick, devastated, defeated, etc…It felt like a knife “ripping through my chest”💔!
Life was happening behind the ‘scenes’ but sorry to say that the “ruthless” interpreters/contractors’ who for years I provided work too, who I always put first, took them to eat, gave them awards, stipends, opened the doors to my house, invited them to workshops (for free), provided them with FREE Training (because without them my business would not have grown as big as it did), but when S***💩hits the fan everything I did for them went out the window and they forgot who I was and smeared my name like I was nothing!
Now I have forgiven because I’m sure (they were going through similar situations due to the economy) but honestly they were being brutal & didn’t understand or cared about my situation…They didn’t care that 1. My family was depending on me 2. 10 other employees & so many others were too…
Unfortunately, after my Dad passed I no longer gave a S*** 💩😢 and had no choice but to file for Bankruptcy and Closed my Doors!
I felt like a total failure, defeated, depressed and just TIRED!!!

BUT!!! I #NeverGiveUp if my father taught me anything that was to Never Give Up!
After a few months of therapy, counseling and letting the storm pass, I decided to get up and #BossUpandRise 💯🔥I dusted my self off and went back 🔙 to the drawing board!
Looking back I don’t regret ANYTHING, but wished I could have done better, been better prepared, but hey God does things for a REASON!
I NOW appreciate that experience because;
1️⃣ I understand that God does things for a reason and this experience was necessary for me to learn & understand that we must prepare for the future & for ‘unforeseen circumstances’, but also take care of ourselves before being able to take care of others.
2️⃣ It helped me so that I can help others AVOID these same struggles, challenges, but more importantly, help them prepare for the future and give back through training and development!
3️⃣ It helped me to be the person I am today. Share+Learn+Grow+Prepare+Plan for the Future and continue to Help Others!
You see, we all make mistakes, but we can all learn from them & help others AVOID these same mistakes.🙏
We have 2 Choices..Get up ##BossUpandRise or Stay down and be defeated!
Regardless of the circumstances #KeepOnGoing
