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!
