Meet Leticia, a hard working, fierce boss babe from Indiana that is making strides. We are proud to have Leticia as one of our Leading Ladies. Get 'em girl!!
Tell us about your business and how you became the successful business woman you are today. (how did you get the courage to open your own store, what motivated you, how many hours you put in, how you keep a positive outlook, etc)
I was missing passion for my career since being laid off as a VIP manager for a 5 star hotel in Chicago. I never thought I would sell anything as I did not have confidence, now I do! I needed something to take me out of my comfort zone and push me. I never set goals before C & I. I never felt like a creative person. Since becoming a Merchandiser I have met so many customers who have become friends. I feel like a brand new person and I finally have a career that I love again. Thank you Chloe and Isabel for giving me a true purpose!

Last time we visited SOBE Miami, we had the pleasure of experiencing Drinkhouse Fire & Ice, an awesome bar that indulges your senses with both a room made of ice and also a room with fire dancers. If you are looking for a unique date night we highly recommend giving this place a try, you will not be disappointed!
First you will bundle up with a fur coat and boots to visit the arctic bar where you can drink out of glasses made entirely of ice and sit on a throne fit for Jack Snow himself!
After you have the opportunity to warm yourself in the main bar area with a variety of exciting elixirs and entertainment.
History buffs would find it impossible to be disappointed in this city. Every turn has a historic footprint and there are many different ways to learn about them. From boat tours, walking tours, a visit to one of the many museums and parks, strolling through the classic neighborhoods or simply by asking every bartender for their own personal scoop.
Mary Baker Eddy was the first person to start a global newspaper, that’s right a WOMAN started the first global newspaper. The organ in her first church in Boston, The Mother Church, is one of the largest organs in the entire world. It boasts a sound that is comparable to that of an entire orchestra when played!
I spent the last 5 days checking out Boston with one of my besties and we had a blast!
This was my first time in Boston and I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and overall vibe of the city itself. I also loved how there was a wide span of things to do, a little something for everyone.
There was no shortage of amazing food (especially seafood!), stunning architecture or
Long Wharf, Boston Harbor & a Sunset Cruise
We had the pleasure of viewing 4th of July fireworks on the Charles River and they were some of the most spectacular that we have ever seen!
Chinatown and more
