To build an entrepreneurial spirit and overcome the barriers that exist in the business world and achieve success, it is necessary for women to cultivate self-confidence, support each other and constantly update themselves.
Since the beginning of Humanity, women have had a very important participation, however little recognized.
And over time we demand more assert rights, more visibility and not only be considered as breeders and housewives.
We have fought for gender equality and fortunately we are being recognized in many areas, but we still have a long way to go.
With this fight I mean that women and men simply have fair treatment, as well as equality in the places where we work.
With slow but firm steps we have been advancing. Our participation in any field is becoming more natural and inclusive.

However, I am fortunate to meet women who are successful businesswomen and who are also wives and mothers. Other women are single mothers. Others decide not to. How do they do it?
First of all, they trust themselves, they also organize themselves to be able to attend to every facet of their lives and they have the valuable support that their families offer them. For me they are warriors who inspire me to move forward.

Today, we face major challenges such as keeping our company active in the midst of the contingency, keeping our collaborators and family healthy, and continuing to generate income to preserve the jobs we create.
So we must resist, innovate and resurface, hoping in God that this storm will soon pass, which has paralyzed the world.
