We had the good fortune of connecting with Yremara Villasmil and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Yremara, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
I want people to remember me as a Venezuelan who had to start from scratch and always saw that life was in her favor because she was convinced that we are creators of our own reality and what we propose we can achieve.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
International cargo companies in the United States can be many but YRECARGO differs from the rest because beyond a shipment we are always focused on offering the best safe and low-cost options for all our clients, beyond a business we feel our clients as part of our family for that reason we give our hearts in each service we offer. To get to have YRECARGO was a very difficult task because I was afraid to take the first step even though in my country, Venezuela, I was the owner of a customs company, I thought that I could not do it here because I thought that I could not learn the processes and regulations of the United States, I worked making delivery for a company from Monday to Monday without rest to pay the expenses of the house because I came to this country alone with my 2 children Irene, 7 years old and Jorge, 13 years old, I heard that people I knew and friends told me that In this country we would only have that type of job and those that Americans who speak fluent English did not want to do.
I began to believe that no forwarders would hire me because my studies were not valid here, but one day I decided to do things differently from what everyone told me and I decided to enter my information on an employment page and they immediately called me and I was hired by A forwarders where I learned a lot and I was able to realize that what I studied at the University of my country International Trade is the same where I go except for some changes in the laws but in this country everything is much easier because all the processes are online.
When the COVID and quarantine started we were all fired and I felt defeated because I thought I would not get another job then the clients of more than 10 years with whom I always kept in contact told me that I should take the most important step of my life and dare to open my own company, at that time I said it is now or never and YRECARGO GLOBAL SHIPPING INC is born. A new company in the United States but founded by this server, who has worked in international trade since the age of 17, almost thirty years of experience and who comes full of motivation and desire to help you process your shipments quickly, safely and low cost, willing to provide my advice so that your business grows with mine.
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?
To begin, I would take him for a walk on Miami Beach and take a bath on the beach then I would take him to eat at Ceviches By Divino to eat ceviche and chaufa arros, at night I would take him to dance at NIKKI BEACH, the next day it would be a walk by boat through the houses of the rich and famous to eat at any restaurant in Miami Beach, then I would take you to Key west to stay at least 2 nights to take the walk of the haunted houses and have a few drinks in the light of the moon. He would also take him to Rapid Water Park to relax in the pools and another day he would take him for a ride on the everglades airboat tours.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I mainly thank God who has accompanied me in every step I take in my life, secondly but not least to my mother who taught me since I was little that there are no impossibilities in life and that we can achieve everything. She was my example to continue because without having attended college and earning a living as a secretary and for his salary to reach he would have to sell breakfast but even if he achieved a great business manufacturing curtains, lingerie and much more. I also have to thank Francisco Jimenez, creator of the philosophy of life that I practice and teach to many people worldwide, such as the Circle of Personal Accomplishment CRP because without those 6 strategies I would not have been able to pass all the tests that I passed when I reached this wonderful country that I bless from the bottom of my heart because it has given me the opportunity to have my own International Cargo business with shipments to Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico and many other countries in addition to giving my two children studies and the opportunity to speak a language as important as English.
