NYC Fair Coalition Business Member Presentation - AROUND ECO

“By doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others.” That’s my ultimate goal, to inspire as many people as possible.

I’ve learned that it’s key to put yourself out there and share your vision, values, and passions.
Last month, I spoke a little bit about how AROUND and Fair Trade Certified™ are making an impact on the lives of so many people.

Join us tomorrow for another NYC Fair Trade Coalition meeting where we have more members sharing their stories.
Let’s learn, grow and support each other in making a difference in the world.

Latinas En New York & Accelerate with Google workshop

Starting your own business can be really challenging and scary at times, but it’s also an act of courage, it’s YOU shaping your own future and opening your heart to the world.

Many times the path can feel lonely, but if you start looking around, you can see that you are not alone. There’s a world out there full of opportunities and wonderful people that are always open and willing to help.  Last night was a testament to that!

***
GREAT things happen when you come together, connect and support each other.

Hearing the stories of so many wonderful women and being at Google, sharing a little bit about my baby AROUND as one of the Leading Latinas En New York, is something I will always be grateful for! 


All of this wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary woman behind it Fanny Mareira.  Bravo, Latinas En New York!

Special thanks to Nicole Lynch, for the incredible support and John Barragan, for the amazing photos.

Around Travel Talk - México Edition

Before launching A R O U N D in 2017 we wrote down so many things we wanted to do. One of them was to gather people together to share their work and experience in order to inspire more people.

Thanks to our friend Alberto from Rejoice Events the idea became a reality. Last Thursday, we held our first Around Travel Talk in Mexico City where people from different industries but with the same common goal, got together to discuss how to make the world a better place.

Big Thanks to our family No Seas Waste, Mochileando,
Gramo México, Natoure, and Two Mexican Explorers for all the great work you do and being so awesome to give your time and share your knowledge with all of us.

Last but not least, thank you, everyone, who attended in spite of the heavy rain.
