Episode 226 Highlights:

  • How she started building her business by turning a personal problem into a product
  • The platform she uses for her e-commerce brand & why
  • When she knew it was time to outsource
  • How to market your company through influencers 
  • Balancing entrepreneurship as a parent
  • And more!

We love to see a fellow Boricua 🇵🇷 in the entrepreneurial world paving for the way others to follow their dreams and make a difference in the community. Mayra saw a problem and decided instead of waiting for someone else to fix, she would do it herself. That’s the number one key to success in these entrepreneurial streets. Find a problem, create a solution and put your own twist to it. The sky is the limit for Mayra and we are so excited to continue witnessing her journey. May this episode give you the motivation and inspiration you need to remind yourself that you too can follow those wild dreams you’ve had in your soul. Make it happen. Don’t give up. And remember why you started. Get to it, amiga! We’re cheering you on!📣
