This week’s episode of The Fearless Mujer is LIVE!
I had the honor of sharing a virtual cup of Cafecito with Rebecca Contreras, Author, philanthropist and President and CEO, AvantGarde LLC.
Rebecca joins me to tell us what inspired her to write her book, Lost Girl: From the Hood to the White House to Millionaire Entrepreneur which recounts her journey from becoming a welfare-dependent teenage mother to advising a sitting president, to driving a successful 100-person company.
In this Cafecito chat Rebecca also shares how she overcame imposter syndrome and why believing in yourself is powerful.
Through her faith and hard work, Rebecca has become an amazing leader and example of what’s possible. I was truly blessed by her, and grateful to have spoken to such a powerful Mujer.
This episode is going to empower you to keep believing in yourself no matter what limitations you may think you have, and as Rebecca said “you are here on this earth for such a time as this, there is a purpose.”
Please share with your Amigas because something happens when we lift each other up!
