What makes your business unique? God has given me a gift that I want to share with everyone. I incorporate art, apparel and décor. I make every item with intense detail and passion.

What prompted you to start your own business? I have always been someone who goes full force. Every since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to design clothes. When I had kids, my life changed. I wanted a certain look in apparel for my little angels. My mom and I have this artistic gift from God, and I wanted to make clothing that included the art on each piece. As for the tutus, one word: magical!

In one word, your life as an entrepreneur: Fulfilling.

Company you admire most: Carolina Herrera – her style is classical and timeless.

Inspirational reading: The OZ Principal by Roger Connors.

To be a successful entrepreneur, you need: Passion, drive and organizational skills.

Historical figure you would like to meet: Maya Angelou. She is a phenomenal woman with an amazing heart and attitude.

Best advice you have received: Nothing happens until you make it happen!

Important business milestone: When I was asked to feature Besitos Couture in my very first boutique. Nothing could rain on my parade that day!

Advice to others wanting to open their own business: Do what makes you happy. Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.

Plans for the future: I would love to create a women’s clothing line.

Most challenging aspect of owning a business: I enjoy wearing many hats, but the most challenging aspect is prioritizing quality time with my beautiful family, my personal life and Besitos Couture.
