You’ve been in business for a while – You’ve been blogging. Doing Facebook Lives. Rocking Instagram.
You offer free sessions, write Posts in all the Facebook groups in the world, give our freebie downloadable, and SO ON and SO ON but you are not gaining clients…
Basically, you’re all over the place & doing all of the things, but you’re still not getting the results you want.
The Women Entrepreneur School is an online hub – with do it yourself, do it with you and do it for you options – designed to help you start your business or level up with less fuss.
I created Women Entrepreneur School because I’ve seen far too many talented women entrepreneur friends go crazy while starting their business or leveling up.
Originally from Spain, I lived it up in England and now I reside in the US. I guess you could say I’m a girl of the world. ;) And I’ve worked all over the world too. I’ve worked with hundreds of students at the university level as a lecturer and instructional designer at Cambridge University (yes, that one).
Since then, I’ve continued to worked as a lecturer, teacher and instructional designer (including whipping up the first Moodle for Cambridge’ Spanish department).
But I’m not just familiar with academia, teaching and inspiring and motivating students on a small and large scale. I’m also an entrepreneur at heart. In 2012, I started my own entrepreneurial journey with a British Educational franchise teaching Spanish as a foreign language. And in just 3 years, it had expanded into three branches in Cambridge, Oxford and Edinburgh. By the end, I was managing the program at more than 30 schools and had stepped into the role as Operational Manager of the main franchise itself.
At the beginning of 2016, I moved to the US with my hot AF husband ;) and started an international online business offering online courses for Spanish teachers.
Did I mention I also made over $100K with this business in the first 12 months?
But I didn’t stop there.
I’ve also worked behind-the-scenes of other entrepreneurial ventures, most notably as a high-level project manager to several coaches in the US. That was when the idea for WE School really came to fruition, as I realized the lack of structured and easy to follow courses that offered this extra support she was offering to her clients and that's how WES was born.
Mainly because I’ve witnessed them being taken from myself and women around me.
When I was 4 years old, I developed a strange disease that left me almost blind. I had to live in darkness as I had photophobia as well. I would have my eyes covered by a protective eye case. I couldn't see and I had to trust my mother's directions to walk around all the time. I couldn't do anything by myself and always felt that there was nothing else I could do. My eye surgeon never lose faith and I was able to see again after 16 surgeries.
I created my online business so I could do everything for myself and have a sustainable life doing things that I love and be FREE and INDEPENDENT. And now I want the same for you. I want this online school to be the change factor for you.
I also grew up knowing first hand what it looked like when women had choices taken away from them. Every year, we had refugees kids from SADR spending the summer with us. One girl, Yamuriya came to spend three months with us every single summer for several years. She was just a normal girl – she’d spend her time learning Spanish and hanging out with me and my family – and then go back home (with tons of food and school supplies!)
One summer when we were teenagers, Yamuriya didn’t show up. That’s when my eyes were opened: Yamuriya didn’t come back because “had to” get married and pregnant. I was still in secondary school and couldn’t wrap my head around it. But it showed me the real importance of education and how I never wanted to let my life be dictated by what society says a woman should do. Yamuriya and women like her are a huge reason why The Women Entrepreneur School exists.
In fact, I turned down an incredible academic offer to start a teaching career in the US and a grant to get my doctorate, once I realized that it wasn’t making me happy and I was only doing it because I was “supposed to.” My heart wasn’t in academia – I wanted to make a difference in the day-to-day lives of normal people, not just publish research no one would read. So, I walked away... and I’ve never been happier.
