Fortuna Alcocer, School of Prosperity “Shri Sama” LLC
Tula Alcocer, Fortuna for You, is a happy Latina who loves inspiring, guiding and empowering Latino entrepreneurs in both the United States and worldwide, to be prosperous and happy in the fulfillment of their purpose of life. She loves freedom. She believes, first, on the huge opportunity to make our lives what our own decision determines. As a proof, she lets her inner-self freely expresses through entrepreneurship.
She also believes that providing the proper knowledge and proper guidance can make a big difference in the lives of people who strive for prosperity and to have a happy life. Leadership is an expression of self-love, love to our descendants, to our community and to our nation, and when it manifests first in ourselves then it can manifest at home and finally in our outside world.
She has created School of Prosperity “Shri Sama” LLC and School Of Successful MLM Entrepreneurs “Guru” to contribute to the creation of new true leaders and successful entrepreneurs in the Latino community. She is a linguist, a Personal & a Master Business Neuro-Coach, International Speaker and a full time mom of Bridget and Cesar.
My goal is to share this great opportunity with those who are looking to have the financial freedom they want to do what they love and those looking for a different lifestyle. I also want to share the knowledge our great group of motivators are teaching us on a daily basis and have allowed me to grow personally. Now I know that God has given me the capacity and the wisdom to achieve whatever I want and that success lies on what I believe I am entitled to.

Her product is now sold through online stores such as QVC, Uncommongoods, and Mexgrocer. It is also available in stores over at LEBRON Restaurant Equipment & Supplies in NYC and Kerekes Bakery & Restaurant Equipment in Brooklyn, NY.

Hanging Secrets is about cause. They are committed to supporting organizations that assist breast cancer survivors and recently provided complete makeovers for 12 breast cancer survivors at our product launch in San Diego, CA. Hanging Secrets was then featured within Inventor Digest Magazine. Inventors Digest is a monthly magazine and website devoted to promoting professional inventors.
