We had the good fortune of connecting with Natalia Pascual and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Natalia, what is the most important factor behind your success?
To have the creative freedom to do what I want to do/create and be fully authentic
Do you have a favorite quote or affirmation? What does it mean to you / what do you like about it?
My motto in life is to collect things that matter, that will last longer and that is made with quality. That translates into the work I do with my jewelry, fine jewelry lasts forever and can be passed on for generations to come. Adorne Se stands for adorning oneself with sentimental yet modern heirlooms that will stand the test of time. The road to owning your own business is not linear and it takes a lot of dedication, hard work and passion for what you do. I have made many mistakes but what I pride myself in is never giving up and for being persistent. I am very spiritualy connected and self aware, so wherever I hit a road block I simply go within and try to understand the teachings that the challenge has to show me. I believe challenges only makes us stronger and helps us get to the next level of our lives. Meditation and connecting within is essential. If there is anything I would leave behind would be the message to never give up and believe that your dreams are possible. You’ve got to get up, believe in yourself and just go for it.
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 them to shop at The Webster for the best selection of clothes and vibes. Then, lunch at Mandolin Bistro because they have the most delicious and fresh food in Miami. Would spend a whole day at the 1 Hotel to lay by the beach and have lunch there because the food is really good. I love museums so I would take them to The Bass and Perez for the day. And for the grand finale, would take them to have dinner at Zuma.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I don’t mean to sound egocentric but I would say myself. I have done a lot of self development work over the past decade and had amazing teachers but at the end of the day you must be your own hero. You’ve got to show up for your life and do the work that it is required. Nobody can do it for you. So not to toot my own horn here but I give myself a lot of credit for that and if I would thank anyone would be my closest friends and family who have supported me through the ups and downs.
