How has the Houston community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
I’ve been here for only 2 years so I am still exploring possibilities, which are quite vast and varied here, I am constantly meeting new people and encountering different scenarios. However, I feel people are very encouraging and positive here!
I love getting to know the people of Houston, they have been very instrumental in my business. Plus the diversity of talents is amazing, Houston is an inspirational city!
Houston has been so welcoming! I literally have been on mom duty 24/7 and have only been able to get connected through social media outlets with other women. I have great appreciation for my Latina roots and was really excited after joining The Houston Latina Bloggers Group! It is filled with entrepreneurs, bloggers, and Latinas who support one another! Thru them I have been able to build my name as an illustration artist.
I was pretty isolated when I got here. I started creating little things here and there, and got introduced to the @htxbossbabes by my (soon-to-be) sister in law. This changed SO MUCH for me. I had no idea there were so many badass women out there running their own businesses, killing it every day!! Following them inspires me daily and motivates me to keep on growing my own brand.
Both of my businesses keep me connecting with the Houston community by vending at local events. The support of locals has been amazing and is what keeps pushing me when times get hard!
My favorite thing to do on the weekends is to spend a day at the beach with my family, playing with the kids, and teaching them about the importance of marine preservation and how we can do our part to keep our beaches and oceans clean.
