The further the journey, the more you will enjoy the ride.
Its very easy for us to look at what we don’t have. Its even easier for us to take a look at what everyone else has – but if you are looking for solutions, that is not the way to go about it.
I am constantly looking to align myself with people who are real go-getters. I am most inspired by those that possess a real human spirit and tenacity for life. These are the people who I want to learn from, the ones who overcame a real struggle or unexpected curve ball thrown at them by life itself. The ones who never saw their lack of support or funding or less than desirable circumstances as an excuse to give up.
These are the stories I get truly excited to share with you on This Little Parent Stayed Home, because they get you pumped up and feeling grateful for all the opportunity you already have.
Join me for a truly inspirational show on Friday when I introduce to you Vivian Tenorio, a brilliant and tenacious entrepreneur who quite frankly, never gave up her drive to put her amazing product on retail shelves everywhere.READ MORE ABOUT VIVIAN NOW —>
Vivian Tenorio‘s belief in thinking that anything was possible if she just put her mind to it helped her deal with and hustle through the challenges she faced as a teenage mother, young wife and high school dropout. This no-limits attitude led Vivain to open a restaurant, start Signature Flan and eventually write her first book.
In 1993, Vivian was a 16-year-old high school student who became pregnant by her high school sweetheart whom she then married and is still married to 16 years later. In 2005, after 6 years of working in the software industry, Vivian and her husband co-founded “Mofongo” which was a Puerto Rican restaurant based in Texas. The restaurant ultimately closed, but her dream of entrepreneurship did not die. Later in 2009, Vivian decided she wasn’t comfortable with someone else calling the shots for her, so she started a new business venture, “Signature Flan.”
Getting her pink slip from her “other job” in 2010 was possibly the best thing that ever happened to her. Vivienne is now able to follow her plans to create an online channel (http://www.viviantenorio.com/) where she will interview other small business owners and industry professionals. Vivienne has plans to continue her speaking engagements so that she can continue to share her story with others who wish to start a small business and live a no-limits lifestyle.
This is the amazing story of overcoming personal fears and limited resources, using gut instincts, initiative and just plain hard work to create a thriving business, as told by Vivian Tenorio, owner of Signature Flan LLC. Faced with the possible layoff from a software company because of the weak economy, Vivian decided to take a treasured family recipe from her personal kitchen and eventually establish nationwide distribution of her product to specialty stores, including Whole Foods Markets, her first major buyer.
Follow her story as she overcomes the roadblocks that are put in front of anyone who attempts to start a business from scratch. This book will inspire others to follow their personal dream of starting a business. The nuggets of information she offers to the reader are priceless. A special gift from the author is a list of useful resources that she used in creating her successful business. These hints will be a great aid to anyone who has aspirations of going into their own business and could save hours of research time for those considering a new venture.
