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

Hi Florencia, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
I have a 4-year-old daughter, we are Argentines, I think that as a mother I make daily decisions that impact her life, such as grabbing our bags and coming to the USA, starting from scratch, in order to have a better future and I always prioritize instilling in her the The strength that women have, to make decisions, to move from scratch and to reinvent ourselves all the time and above all my purpose is in the future to be able to see an empowered woman.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I tell you a little about the history of my business, I own The B12 Store in Upper Buena Vista, Key Biscayne and I have the license for all of South Beach, in Miami Beach Florida. It all started one ordinary day walking with my partner through the Aventura mall and we saw a store called B12, it made us curious since I in Argentina together with a doctor have an Orthomolecular Medicine Center, we went in, we took pictures of everything and I started to investigate Regarding injectable vitamin shots, I came to the conclusion that it was spectacular to be able to solve the drama of taking 100 pills per day to cover all the vitamins and to be able to solve that with one injectable shot per week. So I contacted the brand and bought franchises. and right there he started a business that I’m passionate about …

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend came to Miami to visit me for a week I would not hesitate to put together a very fun and gastronomic itinerary of course haha. We would go to dinner at places like MILA, Nusr-et, Cipriani, Los Fuegos, PALAPA which is located in Upper Buena Vista.
We would spend a day on the beaches of Key Biscayne, which I love!
We would stroll through the Design District and Mitdown, shopping and drinks!
