We had the good fortune of connecting with Patricia Beitler and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Patricia, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My initial thought process behind creating Velocitas was based on a long term vision of how I can make a difference in people’s lives. Most importantly, by providing opportunities for women to mentor, growing together as part of a team that helps businesses build a strong brand that is elevated to a global level.
Over the years, I have seen my vision come to life, and I strive to continue to grow both personally and professionally as we fully appreciate the change we are making for our clients’ entities.
What should our readers know about your business?
What sets us apart is that we are a tight-knit team of women with a wealth of experience. We are all passionate about our work and the campaigns that we are involved in. We are lucky that we can choose who we work with and seem to naturally gravitate towards those who are driven to succeed.
I am proud of the portfolio that we have cultivated over the years in various industries. It shows the depth of our experience and how we can develop solid marketing concepts and integrate them seamlessly into the campaigns that we are creating. Watching as our campaigns come to fruition is rewarding, whether it’s for a start-up or an established company.
Careers take many twists and turns and somehow each hurdle makes you stronger and teaches you something new about business and life that makes you better in every way.
The world should know that anything is possible, it just takes a lot of hard work, consistency, and perseverance to make it happen. You have to show up every single day ready to make something big happen.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The day would start at Green Street Cafe in the Grove for breakfast, followed by KYU in Wynwood for lunch. While we are in Wynwood, we would visit the innovative and art-filled office of Haber Law and have a delicious Cuban coffee. We’d end the day in the South of 5th area for dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab and then head to Smith and Wolensky for drinks.
On another day, we would go to the Village of Merrick Park for brunch and shopping and then we would have dinner at Prime 112 and on another evening we would plan for early dinner at Mamey with live music and rooftop drinks prior.
Another favorite place to go is the Miami Design District, so much to see including art museums, shops and fabulous dining.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My friends and colleagues over the past several years have always been supportive. Without them, I would not be where I am today. I am proud to have a network of powerful women who lift each other up and provide valuable professional insight.
My husband also deserves a big thank you! He’s the one who supports me behind the scenes and understands when I have a late meeting or need to work on-site with media at an event.
