We had the good fortune of connecting with Jenny Ramirez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jenny, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Our believe is that exposure to education empowers women to pursue their career and business goals. In the past year, we have been focusing on developing core skills needed to thrive in any industry. By helping women develop and practice those core skills such as negotiation, public speaking, habit formation, and networking they become fearless in the pursuit of taking on leadership roles. Those leadership roles allow women to take up space and empower other women to believe they can too.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I think being a business owner has taught me many lessons. Within those lessons I have built great relationships and have learnt so much about the power of a supportive community. One of the things that was missing early on in my career and business was the support of other women. Not because I needed it, but because I always felt there was so much more possibilities in working together. Throughout my career and business I’ve had to learn everything on my own and seek the information through research and books. It was quite lonely, but it motivated me to start a company where women no longer have to do it alone. Having the support of other leaders guiding you through your journey is more than mentoring, it’s sisterhood.
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.
I would say it just depends on what part of the world they are visiting me in. I’m quite an adventurous soul but if we are talking about Florida…
I would start with catching sunrise at the Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs.
Followed by kayaking in Caladesi Island State Park.
Then go eat at one of my favorite Peruvian restaurants Señor Rocoto in Tampa, Florida.
With enough energy hang out at the photography art museum downtown and then a Mojito at the Cuban cigar bar in Ybor city.
visiting a local market to see
Handmade artisans items..
Then visit the Thai temple in tampa called Wat Mongkolratanaram to eat delicious food and enjoy the views of the Hillsborough River.
After catch a ferry downtown.
Then take a walk at Curtis Hixon Park.
Lastly catch the sunset at St. Pete beach
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My business partner and best friend Laura Del Carmen has helped bring this vision together.
