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

Hi Victoria, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The biggest and most important lesson my business and career has taught me is hard work. I used to believe that people with successful businesses were just lucky, but no, I’ve learnt that without hard work good things will never come your way and if I want to have a successful business and career I have to put time, effort , and lots of love into it, because if I don’t , who will?

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I got into makeup at 11 years old and I fell in love with it , couples of years later I found another passion which is social media. Thanks to social media I was able to start my own business at 15 years old. At first it was not easy, it is really hard nowadays to get people to know you and your brand, but with patience and discipline,ive grown my business. There were some times that I wanted to give up , and im glad I never did because this is my passion.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I Would definitely take them to the deerfield beach to watch the sunrise and stay all day , have breakfast by the beach, take pictures, go in the water, and just enjoy the view.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wouldn’t have been able to accomplished all the things that I have accomplished at such a young age without my mom , she has been my #1 supporter since the beginning of this journey
