We had the good fortune of connecting with Deisa Rivera and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Deisa, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor about the success of my brand I would say is that I always knew that my company would reflect my values, ideals and my vision. I was always very clear that my brand would reflect who I was as a person and as an entrepreneur. I was always clear that I will not be imitating or copying anybody’s style. I believe that the success comes when you find self love and acceptance and that is as well reflected in your brand. Just be you!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am an event and wedding planner in Miami. I started 12 years ago in Puerto Rico and eventually started building up my company with a lot of sleepless nights and knocking on doors for opportunities. The extraordinary family support I received as I was trying to become more successful was essential to what I have created today. Along this journey I have learned that what you believe will become your reality and that this idea needs to coexist with hard work. At Glamourama, we are all about our customers!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There are so many! But first I would take them for a very special lunch time at SeaSpice. The food and drinks are outstanding! Not to mention the waterfront experience! So beautiful! Next, we can go for a walk at the beautiful Wynwood Arts District or if my best friend wants to go shopping, the Brickell City Centre will be the place to visit. To end the day, dinner at Palme d’Or located at the iconic Biltmore Hotel will be perfect for creating those long life memories!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I love to read motivational books and I would definitely dedicate a shoutout to Michelle Obama’s book “Becoming” and Rachel Hollis books, among so many others. I really look up to Oprah Winfrey and Chris Gardner! They are exceptional mentors and 2 of the best motivational speakers in the world. In my family, I always give a huge shoutout to my husband and my kids.
