After working as a Corporation under Hispanic Services Interpreters in early 2000 and ONLY catering to the Hispanic Community I decided in 2005 to re-brand and change my name to International Language Interpreters, Inc dba IL Interpreters and expanding my services and offering over 100 languages worldwide.
Things were booming, jobs were created (hired 8+ full-time employees), trained and contracted hundreds and thousands of interpreters, everyone was working, things were GREAT, the business was great and then…!
In 2006/2007 unbeknownst to me (not knowing) that the economy was on the verge of collapsing my business started to suffer!
There were budget cuts, not being paid by insurance companies, or general businesses, businesses closing, etc. And, at the time, unfortunately, 90% of my business was with the State, County and Insurance Companies! I had made the mistake that I said I would NEVER make “put all my eggs in 1 basket”.
So, despite the decrease in payments and work I tried and tried to keep up float to make ends meet, to make things right, but just like many businesses I, unfortunately, was unable to continue because I wasn’t being paid, the business slowed down and I since I didn’t have investors, angel investors, and no longer had equity in my home things got to the point that we were literally “robbing Peter to pay Paul”; we had to lay off 8 Full-Time employees and; we could no longer pay our bills, my interpreters, my health started to diminish, interpreters started to bash me, and to make matters worse, I was dealing with a bad pregnancy, my son in a body cast (due to femur fracture, my father slowly dying of Glioblastoma, almost losing my home, and to make it worse, I was still recovering from an auto accident and unfortunately I made the decision to shut down my business! At the time I was sad, disappointed, hurt, I went through a bad depression, I was so miserable, in pain, just suffering so much due to all these horrible circumstances, but…I #nevergiveup
After a few years of major struggles and the closing of the Corporation and going through all the devastating events – years later the economy started to pick up and it started to get better!
Now, during this time frame, I didn’t stop #hustling I continued to do what I love; “Interpreting and Translation, Training, and Coaching” and was ready to #BossUpandRise
So for the last couple of years, I continued to provide services in both English<>Spanish. I continued to receive calls from some of my loyal customers (and those that survived the crash) requesting services and for “other languages and services”, but I decided I would NOT provide these services any longer, so to avoid these calls and since I had made the decision to no longer offer services in “Other Languages” in 2014.
So, I decided to Re-Brand Myself, so that I could just reflect my own personal services in my own language.
So, here I am providing services to my customers and adding these additional services to make up for the “other languages”, I’ve decided to include the following services in English <>Spanish.
These services include but are NOT limited to:
Over the Phone Interpreting Services
Virtual Administrative Bilingual Services
B2B Referral Marketing services
Referral Services for the Hispanic Community and Limited English Speakers
- Training and Coaching for aspiring Interpreters and Entrepreneurs
Health and Beauty products through Herbalife #1 Healthy On the Go Meals…
