We had the good fortune of connecting with Magda “@REVETE” Lopez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Magda “@REVETE”, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
After my divorce, and finding myself at a loss for current procedures and practices because of my age (early forties) I decided to do for myself what I had done for so many people including my former spouse. Work, build and succeed was the goal. It was scary at first. I had always built others, theirs brands, their businesses. The drive was more about proving to myself that I could do it for myself. It worked perfectly. I remember how I felt when I saw my first Google Search acknowledgment! Woot! I made it. I became a thing, a business a successful brand. I did such a job some people only know me as my brand. Being called @REVETE still makes me laugh. It’s an adventure, a rebirth and a great example of tenacity! I’m exhausted more often than not, but can’t stop and won’t stop!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
What sets me apart from others is my versatility. My ability to adapt is really what I believe gives me an edge. My website had to be divided into three sections. I am a fitness enthusiast. This gives me the insight of sticktoitiveness that most people don’t understand. I am also certified to teach all of it. Presently, I am teaching at Sol Yoga and doing one on one classes. I am a Coach. I specialize in Health and Wellness but have mainly coached Fortune 500 businesses. I am a podcaster on all platforms nationally and internationally and sell ice to an Eskimo. I am a Brand Influencer. This perhaps was the most challenging as I love my privacy. I am still learning about this brave, new world. It’s so efficient.

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 take my guest to Anatomy at 1220 for a daily sweat. I would visit the Soho Beach House for some beach time. I would probably introduce them to Joia and spend quality time connecting.

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?
My divorce is still going on. It’s been about a decade sadly. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the love and protection of my attorney Steven Nullman, Nullman Law and my forensic CPA Philip Schector. Together they have created a shield around me that has afforded me the ability to work and create and parent in peace. Of all of the family lawyers and CPA’s in Miami, these two men deserve all of the Shouts!
