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

Hi Nhora, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
When it comes to the entrepreneurship and creating your own business, I’ve learned the hard way that a balances life between workaholism and personal life is one of the most important matters that we need to take into consideration. On my early stages of my business career, I’ve made the mistake of being so scared because I was putting aside my personal life. I was 100 percent invested, all in into the business, which is great to put in all the effort, however, I soon realized that not having time apart from work was getting to me. I started missing my friends, spending time with the loved ones, doing the things that make me happy, and so on.

My breakthrough happened when one day I’ve became highly stressed to the point that I was exhausted. At the same time, I was so eager to continue doing my very best on my business, but it just started becoming almost impossible because my schedule was super hectic to the point that I barely had enough time to sleep or maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Now, after I’ve walked through the difficult times and learned my lesson of not being too hard on myself, the circumstances have changed. Not only that I am happier, more relaxed, more motivated and energized, but also my business is thriving better than before.

The way I transitioned my work-life balance which turned out to be great, is by dedicating more time to self-care, to my family and friends, working out, clean eating, reading, meditating, rollerblading, taking care of my cat Low Key, talking on the phone with my family overseas, working on becoming better in all areas of my life.

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?
One huge personal challenge I’ve had with myself prior to becoming an entrepreneur and a business woman, is that I’ve lost a huge amount of weight. When I saw that I was able to transform my body in that amount, I was eager to exploring what else am I capable of doing with my life.

My journey didn’t end there. I have lived in New York for four years, and I’ve made the decision to move to Miami because life circumstances and family/ friends attracted me here.

Once I settled and continued to work on myself, I wanted to challenge myself unto what can I do as a first-generation immigrant from Colombia and have my own story, be my own example, show people that if I can do it, anyone could.

Therefore, I began using for my personal body some beauty and esthetic products and packages, including fat burning gels. They’ve worked wonders for me and I started feeling myself again. I couldn’t just stop there once I saw the results because I told myself I could offer this product to all the people, man and woman alike, I will find the way and do it.

I wanted all who felt insure about their body weight to have a chance on trying something new. To me, the most important part about my business idea was that many people will be connecting with me emotionally as well, since I am a first-hand experience and a result of the product that now I have a sales business on.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Brickell is my go to place at any time. Key Biscayne is another place here in Miami that I really enjoy, including of course the beach areas that are mesmerizing. I love to hang out at the bars and restaurants, try different cousins, places where they show different music cultures, outdoor areas, movies and theaters, swimming, and playing sports.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
For the past couple of years, Oprah has been on my vision board as a main character that I look forward to. She has inspired millions of people to turn their pains into gains, I have almost watched all of her videos from her show, I was interested on learning more about her background, her upbringing, her career growth over time. The power she had to transition people’s lives and their mindset impresses me. I see her as a person that knows that the sky is the limit. And her lessons taught me to strive on becoming the best version of myself and deal with all the challenges that come up my way.
