Interview with Gabriela R. Chavez
Kristin: What is your business background?
Gabriela: Because of positive thinking and eternal optimism, I have an aptitude for developing strong professional relationships. Because of my genuine compassion and unwavering persistence, I have acquired professional experience in print and promotional modeling, hosting Hollywood events, and raising funds for charitable organizations such as the Chaka Khan Foundation.
I have also worked as an independent marketing consultant for the corporate, spa, sports, and entertainment industries. Having interacted with professionals, celebrities and athletes on all levels, I have developed the necessary skills to take on complex projects.
Kristin: Gabriela, give us a brief overview of the TEEN LUVE Program, BOTG, and the three VIP Memberships BOTG offers.
Gabriela: A) Teen L.U.V.E-The Teen L.U.V.E Program is a not for profit program, 501(c) (3), created by Beauties on the Go to empower at-risk teens. We provide our teens with L.U.V.E, which includes Listening (L), Understanding (U), a Vision (V), and Encouragement (E).
B) Beauties on the Go was created to simplify women’s lives and bring out their inner and outer beauty by inspiring and supporting them by providing resources that help in every aspect of living. Beauties on the Go is a community created by women for women that lead busy lives.
C) Pink, Sepia and Purple are the memberships Beauties on the Go offers.
The benefits that these membership programs offer are top notch for any female business owner. Beauties on the Go ensures that all members are supported and remain inspired through the entire program. Moreover, members receive the support of Beauties on the Go and resources that help toward the advancement of women entrepreneurs; access to targeted business demographics; live/interactive customer relationships, valuable savings on exclusive event invites online, phone conferences, workshops, as well as chances to enter VIP drawings/contests.
Kristin: What is the hardest thing you’ve learned in business?
Gabriela: The hardest thing I have learned in business is that is an entrepreneur can have many great ideas but that it is best to focus on one strong idea. Sometimes we put too much on our plates and eat it all because we don’t want to be “wasteful” or we believe that we must follow through, but the entire time we are doing so we are completely overwhelmed. It’s best to just focus, work smarter; not harder and get better results.
Kristin: What is your primary goal for 2010?
Gabriela: My primary goal for 2010 is to be very successful with the VIP Business Memberships so that they can help fund and expand the resources of my Teen L.U.V.E Program.
