We had the good fortune of connecting with Ivelisse Velasco and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ivelisse, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
One of the most important inspiring tools I had to start my business was the professional training that supported me. I have a degree in arts, majored in performing arts, as a professional actress, an announcer and a model. Basically, I believed that my whole life would be devoted to acting, to developing my capacities for this. Certainly for several years I did TV, cinema, theater, everything was going well. However, one day, a massive layoff began in the channel where I worked for in my native country, Venezuela. After 5 years I felt that my life would always be conditioned to work for someone and that everything would be in the hands of someone else. My life will go into the hands of a person or executives who should always like me. It was there when I decided to create my own company. I did not have financial resources. However, the first step I took was to register it legally.
From then on my life changed, and I had the decisions in my hands. The good and bad. Everything would be under my own ideas and decisions.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My great hobby for ever is traveling. I try to do it always that i can. In a week I would like to take you to know nearby places. San Agustin, Beach , going to the Keys for example. There are a beautiful places to discover
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Several people have helped me along the way. They have believed in me. Each of them knows what I bring to my life and if I mention any of them, maybe others would feel bad.
But I would like through this message bring a tribute to my mother, who is no longer among us, but her strength, her impetus, filled my life with powerful reasons to achieve and obtain every goal that I set for myself.
