We had the good fortune of connecting with Elena Camps and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Elena, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
My career has taught me to be problem-solving, to find ways to get the results I want with the resources I have at the moment. There’s always a solution to any situation, so it has also taught me to not be so hard on myself, to trust my instincts and to speak up.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Ever since I can remember I loved to draw and paint, I loved to give life to everything that was going on inside my head, and it still is this way, I feel this urge to create,I look for a way to get it out of my system, so that’s how it all starts, in my head, I can see the finished product and I have to find a way to make it happen for my own sanity. It’s not always easy because I do struggle with some impostor syndrome issues, so I work on that actively, when I hear myself saying “you’re probably not good enough for this” I’m starting to catch it and say: “wait-yes I am” – you have to put in the hours, you have to educate yourself and never stop learning, this is something I’m very passionate about, I love to learn, I have a huge amount of books and courses online that I read and do “at the same time” I want to know everything, so you can say that being curious has played a major role in my career.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We’d start the day by going for a jog around Palm Beach -we’ll grab breakfast at Loic’s french Bakery -next stop will be the beach at Palm Beach Island -Dinner at Imoto (best sushi and delicious cocktails) -Late night drinks at 215 Speakeasy
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My team at EleVen- I couldn’t of asked for a better place to work, teamwork really does make the dream work.
