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

Hi Anabell, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?

I am from Caracas, Venezuela.

All that I lived brought me where I currently am as an entrepreneur of my brand called Anabell Intuition (Intuicion in Spanish), but my modest origin never defined the size of my dreams. It’s not about where you came from but how persistent you are with your vision.Great endeavors are possible because we are resilient enough to sustain our vision until it becomes a reality. The truth is that at the beginning the vision is not that clear and as you transit that path you start to see it clearer, so you need to trust yourself to do the leap of faith.

My first leap of faith was when I studied sociology at the Central University of Venezuela, I needed to trust because I didn’t have a choice, or I study that career or I lose my opportunity to have a degree, life put me in a very uncomfortable situation so I had the strength to made it. The second and most recent leap of faith was to start my own business, after working 10 years implementing better business practices in the corporate world, such as Corporate Social Responsibility, ESG, and Diversity in Venezuela and South America, I felt it was the time to start a new path as an entrepreneur.

When working in a transversal area on corporations that promotes new ways of doing business by positively impacting people and the planet while creating profit and abundance for all I started developing the ability of inspiring change in leaders and individuals. After a fallow year, with the conviction of continuing to bring awareness to the corporate world, I started to search for new ways of promoting transformation inside the box because during that time I constantly ask myself how are we going to address the current problems of the environmental crisis, being more inclusive and diverse, having more balance in our life if we are not able to listen to ourselves and being coherent?. The reality is that people change because they want to, so we need to encourage people to listen to themselves. That is how I started to research intuition until it became the heart of my business as a tool to bring more awareness to the decision-making process to respond to current challenges.

What should our readers know about your business?

I would like to share the importance of listening to our intuition. Unlike the intellect, intuition allows us to make coherent decisions in harmony with ourselves, and by achieving inner harmony we reflect it externally, in our private and public life. Intuition is what allows us to choose love as opposed to fear, it allows us to choose and sustain what is good for us by achieving the well-being we seek, it allows us to connect with our most authentic being beyond social labels, as well as having the courage and willpower to sustain those innovative, creative, daring decisions that the world needs until they materialize and make this world a better place.
I want to help business leaders to be more aware of themselves, and their decisions making process because their decisions impact the environment, communities, and employees, I imagine myself helping companies and universities to create curriculums, programs, and initiatives in which adults, young people, and future generations learn these tools of awareness to navigate the world with ease. I imagine a world more human, kind, and abundant for all.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When people visit the city a love to take them to explore the city as I live it every day. I take them to have breakfast in Café Bistró or our favorite Venezuelan restaurant in Downtown, El Sitio. Then I love to take people to Margaret Pace Park and walk through the Venetian Bridge, which is a great view of the Bayfront Park. Most recently I discover South Point Park, which has the best sunset view and a very diverse and inclusive vibe. At night I love to walk over Wynwood, the loud music, young people, is so full of life and art all over the place. We usually take ice cream and go to Astra Roof Top which has a great view of the city at night.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
To my mom that always reminded me “go ahead, the team wins”. To my husband and family that support me in my spiritual growth and encourage me to take those leaps of faith.
