"Find your uniqueness and mission

We all have a gift inside of us and our responsibility is to share it with the world. When we are able to unearth our gift and share, we reach the maximum expression of ourselves. When we don't, the fire inside us is extinguished.

Charles P. Garcia is the CEO of the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA), whose mission is to empower and develop Latino men and women as leaders of character for the nation in every sector of the global economy.  Founded in 1972, ALPFA is the nation’s largest Latino professional organization with 43 professional chapters and 144 student chapters.  He also chairs the TIGER 21 South Florida Chapter, the premier peer-to-peer group for ultrahigh-net-worth individuals, which is in 17 cities, and its 320 members control over $30 billion in personal assets.

Mr. Garcia’s career spans a broad spectrum of industries, all focused on leveraging his in-depth understanding of Hispanic consumers.  In 1997, Mr. Garcia became the CEO of Sterling Financial Group, a privately held financial services firm which he grew from a small business to 60 offices in seven countries, 20,000 Hispanic clients and $2 billion in assets prior to selling it in 2005.  The company was named by Inc. magazine as the # 8 fastest growing privately held company in the country and Charles was named Entrepreneur of the Year by three national organizations.

With an expertise in retail operations, marketing, finance, strategy, and international business, he served for six years (until the company was sold in 2012) on the Board of Directors of Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. (Fortune 500), one of the largest supermarkets in the southeast with nearly 500 stores and 400 in-store pharmacies.  He served on the Audit Committee, as a financial expert under SEC rules, and on the Nominating and Corporate Governance committee.  He also chaired an Advisory Board for Aetna Inc. (Fortune 100), reporting directly to its CEO, focused on growing the Hispanic market share of this diversified healthcare company.  Mr. Garcia was also a Hispanic market strategy advisor for Amway, a $13 billion private company in the direct selling industry.

Mr. Garcia has worked for four Presidents, both Democrat and Republican, and served on high profile federal and state government boards.  He was the Chairman of the Board of Visitors of the U.S. Air Force Academy, appointed by both President Bush and President Obama, to oversee all operations at the Air Force Academy.  The fifteen member board is composed of four U.S. Senators, four U.S. Congressmen, and seven Presidential appointments.  The Secretary of the Air Force awarded him the Distinguished Public Service Medal for leading “a historic transformation to ensure it operates more like a corporate board of directors.”  Florida Governor Jeb Bush appointed him to the State Board of Education, which oversees all public education in Florida.

Mr. Garcia has a J.D. from Columbia Law School, where he was the first student in his class to publish on the Columbia Law Review.  He has an M.P.A. from the University of Oklahoma; and a B.S. from the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he was awarded the Class of 1983 Honor and Ethics Trophy given to the graduate who “most personified the ideals of personal integrity.”  In 1988, he was awarded a White House Fellowship by President Reagan.  He served in various high level positions in the federal government, receiving the Congressman Henry B. Gonzalez Public Service and Integrity award.

The book Hispanics in the USA: Making History chose Mr. Garcia as one of fourteen Latino role models for the nation, and both Hispanic Business and Latino Leaders magazines recognized him as one of the “100 most influential Hispanics in the United States.”  He has authored two best-selling leadership books:  A Message from Garcia (John Wiley, 2003) and Leadership Lessons of the White House Fellows (McGraw Hill, 2009).   He writes regularly for CNN, Fox News and the Huffington Post.

After 6 months LograTuDream-3DCoverof hard work and one year and four months of interviewing some of the most success people in the Latino community. My dream of someday writing a book about how Latinos & Latinas turn their dreams into reality is now itself a reality.

Today 8/9/15 my book Logra Tu Dream: How 50 Successful Latinos & Latinas Turned Their Dreams Into Reality has launched on Amazon !!

In this episode I will give you an overview of the book (in Spanish) and let you know how you can get it:

What do Latinos who achieved exceptional success have in common? Is there a certain mindset and a set of principles that helped them achieve their dreams? If so, can they be summarized and replicated?

This is the question stated by Arturo Nava in “Logra Tu Dream”, a book that explores the principles behind 50 success stories of self-made Hispanic leaders. From White House officials to tech innovators to millionaire entrepreneurs, these men and women show that it takes blood, sweat,tears -and ganas!- to overcome the odds and achieve the American Dream.

But achieving the American Dream has become increasingly difficult for many Latinos despite the huge opportunities because there is a lack of mentorship and inspiration from Latino role models…but it doesn’t have to be that way.

This book will show you how 50 of the most successful Latinos and Latinas in America turned their dreams into reality. These inspirational people share their stories providing us insight into the mindset, actions and habits that allowed them to overcome barriers and conquer fears, to achieve what they once thought impossible. After reading this book you will know that your dream is possible if you learn and put into action the proven principles you will discover here which will:

Show you that “si se puede” ( it is possible)

* Teach you how to adopt the mindset of success

* Inspire you to dream big

* Show why YOU are the most important asset you need to
invest in

* Prove to you why you need to be grateful, give and surround
yourself with the right people
 to be successful.

* Inspire you to get mentored and take massive action

As says Robert Renteria says “If your dream is big enough the odds don’t matter”. Gaby Natale the president of Super Latina TV who wrote the forward for this book puts it perfectly: “Logra Tu Dream” reminds us that it is vital for our community to keep embracing a Si Se Puede attitude and to develop our full potential both individually and collectively.

My goal is to reach as many people as possible with this book by making it an Amazon bestseller. With you help I believe we can ! Si se puede !!

Hot off the presses!…well, the virtual presses at least.

During the course of her service work in the nonprofit sector, Claudia Espinosa became more aware of the inequalities that marginalized populations, such as immigrants and women, faced every day in the United States and around the world. Her dedication to serve can be demonstrated through her work at the Latina Institute, Communilife, Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC, and UN Women. Her work with the Latina Institute and her vocation with Latina adolescents, helped her understand the disadvantages that her community experiences everyday and gave her the opportunity to create changes that can help Latino families live more positive lives.

In 2012, Ms. Espinosa founded the L.O.V.E. Mentoring Program, inspired by her experience working for a suicide prevention program where she counseled Latina adolescents with depression and suicidal ideations. After witnessing first-hand the overwhelming difficulties that inflict young Latinas, she was prompted to further investigate the particular challenges within the Latina community. Upon discovering the many studies that reveal staggering discrepancies between the rates of suicide, teen pregnancy, and high school dropouts for young Latinas and their peers, Ms. Espinosa recognized a clear and distinct need for the development of enhanced support systems—such as those that may be provided through building a close relationship with a positive role model.

Ms. Espinosa currently serves as the Executive Director of the L.O.V.E. Mentoring Program. In 2010, she received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Forensic Psychology with Magna Cum Laude honors from CUNY. In May 2013, she received her second Master’s degree in Public Administration from the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at NYU. She also completed the Professional Development Program, Managing Yourself and Leading Others, from the Harvard Division of Continuing Education in August of 2013. As a self-made professional Latina, she wants to show young Latinas that with determination, passion, and faith in ourselves, anything is possible. 

What you'll learn

  • The biggest issues Latinas face in the US
  • What inspired Claudia to start the LOVE mentoring program
  • Why the highest rate of suicide attempts in NYC is among Latinas
  • Claudia's dream and her journey 
  • The huge importance of exposing young Latinas to mentors that show them that success is possible.
  • How LOVE Mentoring is changing young Latinas lives
  • The importance of believing that your dream is possible

I'll introduce Cristian with his letter to Crowdisimo: I am Cristian Arcega, I want to be an Electrical Engineer. I was born in Mexicali, Mexico and moved to Phoenix at the age of six. Despite deficiency in English I learned well and have performed at the top of my class consistently.Years later I found a place to put my talents to action. In high school I joined the Falcon Robotics Team. We Focused on STEM competitions to challenge ourselves. One year we entered an Underwater Robot Competition where we would be tasked to complete a series of tasks underwater with a robot of our creation.

This competition was unlike anything any of us had ever attempted so we entered the University Class of the competition. Even though it was our first time building an aquatic robot and with a budget a percentage of everyone else’s we had a dream. Regardless of the low expectations of our team, our robot and ourselves we went for it. In spite of our minimal budget and competing against the likes of MIT among others we won. We've leveraged that victory to inspire ourselves, our community and youth to create a system where everyone who can dream big believes themselves capable of great things. They believe in their futures, that they can be the best.

This story of success has been retold numerous times; by Wired Magazine in La Vida Robot, by Mary Mazzio in the documentary Underwater Dreams, the book by Josh Davis Spare Parts and most recently by Lionsgate and Pantelion FilmsSpare Parts.

Unfortunately life doesn't always unfold the way we want. Due to being undocumented, a year into my engineering degree my scholarship was revoked due to immigration legislation in Arizona. I was also no longer considered an in-state student and my tuition tripled. I have struggled to remain in school since. Ten years later I have not had the funds to attend college full time and complete my dream to become an Electrical Engineer.

My goal remains as always to get an Engineering Degree and start my own consumer electronics company. I hope to one day use my successes to uplift my community. I have recently started a crowd source campaign through CollegeDream.help to help raise funds to go to college. I hope that you will help me achieve my dream in the best way you can. Thank you.

What you'll learn

  • Cristian's dream to become an engineer and make robots
  • Cristian's family story emmigrating from Mexico and then living on a trailer park once in the US
  • How Cristian a Latino high school student and his team won the robotics competition vs MIT which inspired the Spare Parts movie with George Lopez
  • The incredible hacks that Cristian and his team came up with to build the underwater robot with little to no budget and tons of Latino ingenuity
  • The immigrant edge that Cristian'and his team had over the MIT kids that enabled them to come up with better more creative ideas
  • The importance of preparation to win
  • Cristian's keys to success: wanting it more than any other team, putting in the extra time and effort, perseverence, the ability to come back from failure and investing for the future
  • Why revoked Cristian's scholarship was revoked because he was undocumented, and why he has not been unable to graduate from college for 10 years
  • Christian's crowdfunding campaign on Crowdisimo to fund his education and how you can help

Lizza Monet Morales is a rising actress who has already made a name for herself as a bilingual reporter and brand ambassador. This proud Latina, is a native Angeleno, who calls Los Angeles and New York home. Picking up her first copy of Variety and The Hollywood Reporter at the age of 8, Lizza immediately fell in love with the entertainment industry and the rest as they say is history. Lizza is a dedicated artist who enjoys storytelling on stage, in film and on television. She was most recently seen in David Mamet’s “Phil Spector” biopic for HBO starring Al Pacino and Helen Mirren.

Lizza has been on-air for Access Hollywood, Telemundo, EXTRA, Univision, Celebrity Justice, The Insider and The TV-Guide Channel among others. In addition, she has reported for Us Weekly, People Magazine and was a featured columnist in Item Magazine. You can also find her online reporting on the crazy adventures of her daily life on her blog, xoxoLizza.com. She was featured as Moda & Estilo Magazine’s cover girl for their 2013 holiday issue.  As the ultimate “tomboy in heels”, Lizza is a bold and early adopter who loves all things tech, auto, gadgets, social media and entrepreneurship as much as her obsession with beauty, fashion, travel, philanthropy, eco-living and the arts.

Lizza seamlessly combines her vast experience in front and behind the camera, as both a multi-platform bilingual journalist and producer, to deliver a brands’ message in a way that organically connects with consumers. Since at the end of the day, she’s an avid consumer herself. As a result, clients like the Latin GRAMMY Awards have hired her to be their backstage brand ambassador the last three years. In 2014, the GRAMMYS brought her on board in the same capacity. In 2013, she was elected as the first social media conference ambassador for the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) Nationwide Conference. She also served as the official host for the 2013 Latinos In Social Media (LATISM) Conference. Others, such as, CBS’s “The Insider”, LA’s prestigious Center Theater Group and HBO Latino have tapped her to be a social media correspondent for a variety of events, such as the Oscars and opening nights for the major theater productions in LA or TV specials.

Last year, she was chosen to speak alongside politician Wendy Gruel and eyebrow queen Anastasia Sore to the graduates of a domestic violence survival program.  She also is a frequent “Career Day” speaker for schools in the Los Angeles area and a motivational speaker across the country.

Most recently, Lizza was selected as one of ten “All Star Bloggers” in the US, by the board of Hispancize 2014 for excelling in her field. She was also a featured contributor during the White House’s special #GetCovered live telecast from the YouTube Space in Los Angeles. For the 2014 Academy Awards, Lizza was a social media correspondent for Vanity Fair and once again for CBS’s ‘The Insider.” She also was selected to co-host, HBO’s special “Corazon Live: Carlos Santana” alongside Carlos Ponce.

Lizza attended Harvard University and Middlebury College, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and double minor in Economics and Japanese. She also earned a post-graduate journalism certificate from UCLA and is a graduate of the Atlantic Theater Company’s master conservatory program. A natural born connector, nothing brings Lizza greater pleasure than championing on the efforts of other entrepreneurs and being a resource to colleagues and mentor to the next generation.  When not working, you can catch Lizza either, speaking Japanese, salsa dancing, traveling, volunteering, tinkering with a new gadget or tweeting and blogging about her latest adventure.

Race to Erase MS, The Carrousel Ball, Junior League Of Los Angeles, Mar Vista Children’s Center and Lupus LA are among the non-profit organizations Lizza donates her time too.  Lizza has also served as a member of the board of directors for the Downtown Film Festival – Los Angeles and as a host committee member for Latino Fashion Week – Los Angeles. You can connect with her online by looking up @xoxolizza on any social media platform you’re on.
