Learning and Sharing with Entrepreneurial Women

In May, I had the opportunity to be part of a panel presented by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana during their Women's Business Symposium.

The group of panelists was composed of five women with origins in different Latin American countries. We were all business owners with one common element: we had to reinvent ourselves and start all over. I was honored to listen to their stories, to get to know more about them, and to receive their advice. Sitting next to them filled me with strength and provided me with hope.

We all have a story, a challenging past, and hardships in life that we had to overcome. These experiences marked us forever to make us stronger individuals.

Being able to tell and share our stories with the audience was motivating. It felt great receiving supportive hugs and sincere gratitude at the end of the panel. It is incredibly wonderful to know that by sharing your story, you can spark a fire within the women who are listening and gathering their strength to begin their own project. I take this opportunity to thank the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for their great work in providing a forum and for allowing women the opportunity to participate in events dedicated to entrepreneurial women who are fierce and who are working hard to succeed.

Events like the Annual Women's Business Symposium create opportunities, while also providing the participants with a sense of security when they discover that there are many other women who support them throughout their respective entrepreneurial processes.

I wish the best for all women who are setting a goal and starting their business journey. Rest assured that you too can accomplish whatever you set your mind to with discipline and perseverance!

Publisher's Note

I moved to the United States almost 20 years ago, and as a sports fan, I couldn't stand the fact that I did not understand how American football worked.

It was impossible not to get infected by the passion and the love New Orleanians have for the boys in the Black and Gold, so I made it a point to learn the basics and join the fun of watching the beloved Saints play.

I was lucky to suffer with a weak team only for a few years, and I was fortunate to be part of the WHO DAT Nation when they made it to the Super Bowl in Miami.

Even though the Super Bowl we wished for this year did not happen, our team gave us a great season, and off the field, many Saints players are doing so much for this community through their foundations and giving back some love to their fan base. Today, The Saints continue to be an essential driving force of our community.

It is amazing what passion and pride can do for the city of New Orleans. The Saints gave us an incredible season! I know we’ve had a few weeks of coping, and many people have decided to party away from television sets the night of the championship game, but I still want to thank the New Orleans Saints for all the joy they gave us this last season.

Like most of you, I'm always proud to yell out loud WHO DAT!
