Overcoming Barriers & Becoming a Mentor
Garcia had to overcome numerous obstacles to culminate into today’s leader. From financial support, balancing responsibilities, inadequate support system, timidity- shy about touting her accomplishment and being afraid of being labeled as proud and boastful! But she successfully overcame them and made a mark in the industry.
“I participate in mentoring women who are in up-and-coming business, I celebrate and acknowledge other female owners accomplishments and I help other female owners to get started with their business. I also buy products made by women to help financially,” explains Garcia. “I acknowledge their strengths and potential contributions. Wherever I see weakness I work with team members to empower them and help them grow away from the weakness.”
The steadfast leader is still looking for ways to be more successful. It took years for her to go to school, work for different organizations, and participate in workshops to understand failures. “Advice to share is don’t give up, it looks hard and no one can stop you but God and yourself. You are who you make yourself to be, not what others think or say about you,” elucidates Garcia. Armed with this willpower, she has taken the company to new heights.
