Being born in Uruguay, I have chosen a travelers’ life, as in change, I find inspiration and answers.
After being a business developer for 15 years, in 2016 I became a business and career coach for women, in order to have a job that is more aligned with my values, my passion and the lifestyle I desire.
Since then I work with women who want to define and successfully accomplish their business projects whether as entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs.
The “why” of my work is born from the alignment of my main values: freedom, justice and passion.
My mission is that my clients are financially autonomous, free to be whomever they decide, adventurous to dream and achieve greatly and to perform a professional activity that brings them fulfillment and joy.
The professional transition
In 2013 I had a profound introspection period, after losing two of the most important persons in my life, my dad and my husband (we divorced). During that period I took time for myself, I did a few business plans for projects I had in mind, I traveled, reflected, had interesting exchanges and I tried to connect the dots between my past, my present and my future. I was deciding how to live the second part of my life and taking responsibility for it.
I also understood that neglecting my passion job was the same as neglecting myself. Due to that, I had created an imbalance between my partner and I putting all my attention and expectations in our couple. And the consequences were visible.
Almost two years later I met a coach and we did an amazing work together. When we finished our coaching, I realized that if I could not find the job of my dreams I could create it and that the limits were only on my mind. I wanted a job that made sense, to work for myself and to empower women. She enabled me to see that I was ready for a change and to start implementing actions.
Having lived as a female in Uruguay and as the daughter of a conservative generation, made me a rebel since childhood. A rebel against the unspoken laws that took any kind of freedom from women, starting by myself, my mother and then extending to every woman I met. My value of justice was reinforced as a consequence of seeing and experiencing sexism and injustices. Today, some things have changed for the better, but not as much as I wish. We still lack of female role models and female leaders in power positions.
Connecting the dots
Connecting the dots is for me choosing with my heart every day and believing that through my work and the passion I put into it, I contribute to making the world a better place.
My message to you:
If you want to change your life or to pursue a dream, work for it. Do it without thinking about your age or time. As the time is always right when the desire exists. If you wait, you can wait forever.
Take responsibility for your life and happiness and live according to your own values.
Invest in yourself and pursue your financial freedom
Look for help when you need it, it means you are courageous!
