Just to start the year with the right foot –or the left one if you feel more power on that one, like many soccer players do-, I took the time to analyze what articles were doing best on our platform and why, so I can give you some tips on how to use our platform. Here are the winners:
The inspirational story of an accomplished Cuban-American entrepreneur, Aymee Zubizarreta, the idea and message behind the new series aims at changing the traditional image of Latinas in TV series and movies into who they really are: accomplished professionals, well-educated career driven and family oriented women having big dreams, facing and overcoming their challenges and most importantly, thriving on their own in a bicultural and bilingual world. She is now on the funding efforts stage, so we will continue to support her cause!
Hipatia Lopez “idea” began around the kitchen table during the holiday season when her family was making 100 empanadas. She envisioned a tool that would help with closing the empanadas easily and quickly; found an architect who helped her with perfecting the drawings to make it come to life on paper and patent tool. From the kitchen table to main supermarket chains and wholesalers, for Hipatia the rest is history!

All these articles were successful readers not only because of the value of their stories but also because the Latinas featured on them understood the value of the tool we provide and took the time and effort to share with their communities and social media.
LatinasInBusiness.us has been designed to provide a space, a window of opportunity, a platform for Latinas who want to share their concerns, expertise, strategies and achievements. We also want the site to be a productive possibility for those who would like to promote their product or service, attract customers to their businesses, learn about social media, give business advice or ask for business advice, be a “madrina,” become a minority vendor or find business to business trade opportunities. Thank you!
We will continue to do so by bringing excellent tools that you can use to promote your story, your business or your cause. Watch out, 2015, here we come!
