It was February 18th at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, another edition of the San Francisco Gift Show and my first show in the west coast. Obviously I felt anxious to know about how would the San Francisco show would be and if there would be buyers interested in my jewelry line.

In all honesty there weren’t buyers walking the aisles at all times, like it happens in other trades shows. But I had people coming to my booth learning about my line. It is a bit difficult to introduce a new product, the huayruros seeds are new,my jewelry line is completely different, not many people know where they are from, most likely people think it is coral, so everybody who came by my booth learned about huayruro seeds.

One of the most important interested buyers I talked to was the San Diego Zoo, after they left one of my neighbors told me, you may come here and not see many buyers but it only takes one buyer to make your show worth it. (and YES, that is SO TRUE)

Although I had to do a lot of follow ups (and this is not the 1st time), indeed four weeks ago after many follow ups to the San Diego Zoo jewelry buyer, she asked me for specific samples; I designed for them and finally, they placed their 1st order.

It took a lot of time, patience, communication and an attitude of DO NOT GIVE UP. Eventhough when there are moments that I feel frustrated about trying to get more clients, just when I feel really down, then there is GOD telling me DO NOT GIVE UP. There is a plan for YOU and things will get better, you will see.

After a rigorous process to be accepted as a vendor (one thing is they place the order) then you have to comply with other requirements…after all we can say

When I launched my blog Two Worlds One Chica “The Hispanic-American life of a successful mompreneur” in 2011. I wanted to share my life and the many things I do on a daily basis to run a business, to be a loving mother, and to have some time to pamper myself, and my husband. Living as a successful “mompreneur” in the United States, is not an easy task. It is an everyday learning process. It is a journey I have been industriously working hard at, especially now that I have two children.

To those of you with one or more children, or no children at all, and wondering (because I also asked myself the same question), how do you do it?  Even better how do I do it? You know what? You JUST DO IT!  I have met so many women and men who have inspired me to continue doing what I do, to continue dreaming bigger and bigger. To dream large rather than small in accomplishing my goals.

mujerestrabajoSometimes, I still try to find answers to many things for my business, for, how to link square application to my quickbooks or simply how to link my Linked-in account to my Facebook.  Other questions such as “what is the best education for my child, public or private? Or should I put my children in activities everyday? In my native country Peru, that is a simple answer. In my former country our activities as kids was just simply to go to the park across from the house and climb trees or simply play.  That is not possible in such a heavily congested metropolis where childrens’ safety is a major concern, right?

I digress from my point. Through my blog I share how a “mompreneur” survives living in the United States as I am trying hard to keep my traditions alive within my children and making them understand that they can cherish and love both countries their parents have come from.

On the other hand, through my blog I share jewelry designs and interesting subjects that are of helpful and fascinating for other entrepreneurs and mompreneurs.  More importantly these subjects can also help other women and men who are in the industry looking for answers. I believe this has been the instrumental key to the success of my blog. Also, I have learned to communicate with my audience in an open candid manner.  I speak from my heart and with honesty.

Truly, this has been a blessing that as a blogger I have also been able to connect with other women and men “mompreneurs” who are out there working hard, raising children and still trying to find balance in their lives.
