Elena, what’s an interestingly weird fact about yourself?
I’m a mom, a business woman, an entrepreneur and a survivor.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
When I was in the traditional world, back when I was 22 or 23 years old.
I was born in Venezuela and didn’t want to go back after college.
I was going to business school in Boston and didn’t wanna go back for many issues including the crime there which is worst then Iraq and still is.
My boyfriend was in Miami, Florida I so decided to do something really weird which is I decided to stay here in the U.S. and become an entrepreneur so I moved to Miami and opened a traditional business.
I Opened a brick and mortar retail business in South Beach, Miami.
Then I later realized opening the retail business was like opening up a full time job.
Was working 60,70,80 hours a week and always away from home.
Business expanded, I opened up several locational all across the country so got very stressed out and this is how I got started as an entrepreneur in the online world.
One day it hit me, I got a wake up call flying from MIA to LA and all of a sudden I fainted and was passed out, spent the night in hospital.
Doctor said, “I don’t know what you do for a living but I think it’s time you make a change.”
This was my first wake up call.
I got a divorce and to top it off I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I shut down all my stores.
This is when I started my online entrepreneur journey and it was the best decision of my life.
Less than 90 days later I was making per week more than what I was making in a full year in a retail location.
What’s your big reason why?
Was for my son.
Not being present for my son as a mom was killing me.
Then as I became successful it changed to how can I help other people do the same which is my vision now.
What has been your weirdest breakthrough experience?
She said, “Elena, just leave your bad experiences, your good ones and your pedigrees, your titles and all the things you think you know outside.”
“Then you follow your system, you follow your leaders and you will have success”
So I took it at heart and became humble.
