Ariany Calles | CEO/ Hecho a Mano ATL & Jewelry Designers
Hecho a Mano ATL is a dream that began more than 20 years ago in Venezuela. I grew up in a matriarchy where women had important family responsibilities but in Venezuela a very macho country where women suffered injustices due to culture but were very capable and intelligent. So I decided to start studies that will help me understand and help women to be emotionally and economically independent. When I arrived in this country I noticed that what I believed was very Venezuelan was worldwide. Female segregation and non-equality. So I decided to create a space where I help women to create companies and develop their identity by guiding them and making them part of a community. In this work I hope this will be the legacy to the world. Read more>>
Brandi Fox | Start Up Strategist & Serial Entrepreneur
Leaving a positive legacy is the catalysts to my determination of being a successful entrepreneur. For my children I want to leave a legacy of wealth and life knowledge. I want my children to know the importance of hard work, authenticity, loyalty, and integrity. Even though like others I do fall short in these areas at times, I include those shortcomings in the legacy that I plan to leave for my children. I embrace my mistakes as a lesson for them to understand that sometimes we can make mistakes, but those mistakes do not make us. For my family and friends I want to live a legacy of positivity. I try to live a balanced life full of things that make me happy including God, family and friends, entrepreneurship, food and travel. Read more>>
