You're listening to empowerment and all that podcast, your favorite podcast for women's empowerment, hosted by Rita Bautista. It's time to be reminded of the authority of your inner goddess and elevate the power within. Are you ready, Helena? Thank you so much for joining me today. Thank you, Rita. It is so wonderful to be here with you and all of your listeners today. Thanks for having me. Oh Man, the pleasure is all mine. You know, I we were just talking a few minutes ago about how exciting it is to know and get a chance to talk to a leftina author. I mean there's you know, we are obviously growing in population in this country right now, but you know you are when Willyspano. Thank you. Yes, it it is. It is a blessing and such an honor to be able to represent I actually grew up and was born in Indiana, so there's even struggle with that, because I was the only minority, you know, growing up going to school. I don't speak Spanish, but I'm learning, but there's such a stigma that goes with your not Mexican enough, but you're not white enough, and culture and this and that so it is a true honor to be able to represent our culture and show future generations of what Latina leadership can actually look like. Absolutely. You know, it's really interesting that you hit that topic. Just recently, Julian Castro, who's one of the political brothers from San Antonio, he was getting he was getting beat up in the media because of the fact that he doesn't speak Spanish. Now, my sister in law, who's married to my brother, obviously she's from San Antonio and and it took a it was a very hard lesson for us, because my mom and our family at first was not excited about the fact that she didn't know Spanish. And when you meet her parents, it's like you couldn't be more Mexican, you couldn't be more Hispanic than her family. And I'm like this girl was raised being Hispanic, she knows what it is. It's in her blood, right, right, yeah, yeah, so, no, girl, I'm all about it. I now I used to be in that mindset and I you know, I apologize now to everybody because of that, because I'm like, you know what it was. Sometimes it's standing in that ignorance of not actually knowing right, like yes, that yes, yeah, and the thing is like for me being in Indiana, my parents were entrepreneurs, they were very successful and they were kind of put through some experiences that were very uncomfortable right in that and that era. So they did what they thought was best and fold me and my sister out of it so that we had more opportunities. And as you grow older, you can't take the culture out of you. You cannot take who you truly are out of it, and so I grew up with the struggle. I just I was struggling because there was a piece of me that just was not thriving and I couldn't figure out what that was, and it wasn't really until these past few months speaking with the very close friend of mine that grew up in la where he is like girl, this is the piece of you that is fighting to get out, because it's such a big part of you. And so that's why I'm learning Spanish now well, because I want to be comfortable in the set I like. I want to be comfortable. I don't want to feel uncomfortable, but that's how I've grown up and I just have to own it. It is what it is. Right. Yeah, absolutely, but you know, what I love about you is that you're doing this self like a self awareness check and saying, you know what, I am going to learn my culture, I am going to learn the language, and that's a lot, that takes a lot and that's that's amazing and, truthfully, I mean just for...

...the little bit that I've gotten to know you, I feel like you are definitely a go getter and a person who breaks through adversity in order to make sure that you're going to get to where you're going. So Kudo, see you for that. Thank you, thank you. Yeah, feels good. And the obviously things have not always been the best for you, right, because I do feel like I want to dive into a little bit of your story. And so such a powerful name for a book broken stronger. Yes, can you give us a little bit of your background and tell me, like how you got to the point where you're like, yeah, I'm going to write this book and I want to teach people how to do something to get them in a better place? Absolutely. The first thing that I'm just going to bring up is, I don't know what anybody's beliefs or faith systems or any of that, but I have a good he is my grand overall designer, my God, however you want to call that, whether it's a higher energy love, master of the universe, Jesus Christ, like, whoever that is for anyone. I don't talk religion, but he is my good he is my everything. So that is why I have to put that out there, because it was in two thousand eighteen, will actually December of two thousand and seventeen, I had a major, major surgery on my neck. I have a whole new metal piece in my neck that literally could have either left me paralyzed or I may not have made it through the surgery. It was a very serious surgery and during my recovery in February of two thousand and eighteen was when I was brushing my teeth before bed and my good my grando for all designer, he had been saying, girl, you're going to write a book, you're going to write a book, and I kept thinking no, you've got the wrong person, I'm not a writer. And for like five days the the idea, the thought you're going to write a book or going to write a book, it just floated in my head and I just thought it was going to go away. It will go away. Well, Nope, I'm brushing my teeth before bed in February and I actually heard my my God tell me you're going to write a book. It's going to be called broken stronger, and I just I had like toothpaste running down my arm everything. I'm like standing there like Whoa, and I let me just explain like real quick. And in that moment in the bathroom I saw so many pain points of my life like Flash, like a movie trailer or like screenshots. My Dad left when I was like eight. I ran away my high school year to be with a boyfriend who eventually got another girl pregnant. That broke my heart. My Dad died of cancer, my Stepdad died during a heart attack or during a heart surgery, and all of this pain just, man, it just broke me. But God was able to like scoop it up and he took it away and he let me see in that moment how strong I've been, like how strong I am to to be here and have gotten through all these points. But what happened is that was the beginning of two thousand and eighteen and I started really focusing on broken stronger, broken stronger. I started a business, a coaching, broken stronger. It was just it was there. And in November of two thousand and eighteen, just last November, my husband had a heart attack and he was only forty nine years old and he was in the hospital for about three and a half weeks on life support and on Christmas Eve he passed away. I had to to make...

...the choice to turn the machines off and he passed away. Now, looking back, I now realize that God had to put me through that activity in the beginning of the year to make space for this amount of pain. But he also had shown me that he was capable of taking that pain away. Wow. And so to get through my husband dying on Christmas Eve, which is my absolute favorite time of year. Christmas is just my favorite time of year, was excruciating. But because of the work and because of my faith, I I told myself that, you know, it would have been okay for me to crawl and bed, to crawl into a hole, to not want to take a shower for a week at a time. I mean that would have been okay and everybody would have understood, like you just lost your husband. But I thought no, because when I work with people, I always let people know, excuses are the number one cause of failure. So I don't believe in excuses and I don't buy into excuses and I was in a position where I could have very easily went down a hole, but instead I thought this is not an excuse, get up, do the work that God has called you to do, and so I started writing my book broken, stronger, three weeks after he passed away. Wow, and and here it is. Here it is a number one best seller on Amazon and two categories and it's been picked up by a major publishing company. So you'll see it in bookstores here in the next couple months. But that's really I know that's a lot of information, but it's the true journey. It really is. Yeah, I think that's such a great thing that you I mean just hearing it right like you can normally tell when a person is still in a lot of like raw emotion right when someone's telling their story, and I think the fact that you have the ability to talk about it and you've been able to write through your journey, it sounds like you've just in so much of a better place and I have to tell you I'm so very sorry for what happened. Thank you. Thank you. I am so glad that the light shined inside of you, though, and you were able to continue pushing forward and do something so incredible to help people. Yeah, yeah, and I think, you know, one of the big things to keep in mind, because I shared my journey of while he was in the hospital. I I'm on Facebook, I'm on Facebook, I put all my I'm very transparent, so I really shared the journey. I shared videos, I shared, you know, just things that were happening. But I think the main thing that that really helped a lot of other people either stuck in their grief or going through it, is realizing that that, while I was going through it, it still wasn't about me, like this was. This was a plan that God had for for my husband at that time. It, even though it affected me, it wasn't about me. This was his journey, this was God's plan for his life and I and I had to honor that as well, and I think it really helped a lot of people to look at the pain that they were feeling a bit differently too. So if it can serve in that way, that's a blessing. Absolutely, absolutely. I think something that you basically what you to sum up what you just said, it's basically like life happens for you and not to you, and it seems like, instead of taking the victim role, and which obviously you are more than. I mean you have the ability to do that. It's not like it would have been. You know, you're a wife who just left lost your husband. You know, you decided to make take that pain and turn it into something positive and, like you know, sometimes it takes years for people to get to that point, you know. So I just want to commend you...

...on that. Thank you. Thank you. That's that's my good right. Yeah, we all definitely go through some different grieving phases. I know for me, when my grandmother passed away, she was basically my other parents and it was very hard and it took me years like on and off of like healthy, unhealthy practices for grieving, and I'm like, man, if I would have known you back then, I would have been like Atlanta. have out of this, you know, figure out how to be a little bit more productive and better about the grieving process. But well, and it's a journey, you know, it is a part like what when my father passed away from cancer? That was in two thousand and eleven, and I can't tell you I handled it the same. You know, I made I made those crazy choices and started doing things that, you know, just surfaced. But you learn from it, you grow from it, and it was all part of the plan, like it's all, it's all just learning. So yeah, absolutely, Hmm. So, yeah, so let's talk a little bit about this book here, Ma'am, Miss Author Number One. Yeah, so you have. Yeah, my brother broken stronger. Yeah, it's it's, it's it's for like it says eight steps, eight not an aegotiable, steps to break free and become your own boss, and I just like to let people know that that can be both figuratively speaking or or actual becoming your own boss, you know, like at work, but just basically becoming a CEO over your life, like own yourself. That's the true basis behind it. Yeah, so let's dive into these eight tips. How did one how did you develop these eight tips? For these just things that you were doing naturally, or was it something that you you know, while you are brushing your teeth that day and you're like, I'm writing this book, you already kind of knew these are the steps I've been taking in my life. How did that come to you? It's pretty amazing the process. These are all steps that, over the years, have propelled me to my next place. I like to think of myself as trying to be now for someone what I needed back then. So years and years and years of different trainings, different courses, different advancements, different all sorts of things, I kind of took the most critical components that actually changed my life and try to combine them into one book so that the next person doesn't have to spend years trying to figure all these things out. I come from owning my own business for thirteen years prior to working in the corporate world, and so I I'm an award winning entrepreneur. That business I had for thirteen years was a fitness studio. I was a dance fitness instructor and a certified trainer and I did that for thirteen years and absolutely loved it and was successful in all that good stuff. Then right around me there were about five corporate franchised Jim's that popped up within like five to ten mile radius. And you know, those kind of gyms that you can use a key to just go in twenty four hours run on a treadmill, do your own thing, and I was physically teaching of forty classes a week by myself. So envision going to work for forty hours a Monday through Friday, but envision yourself on a stage, totally beating your body up, pushing students and you're working out the whole time. I knew I couldn't do that like that. I couldn't, couldn't keep doing that, and hence...

...the reason for my next surgery. Part of it, but but all of those lessons of having to decide to start the business, run the business while I was a mom, run the business while I went through a divorce, having to close the business and and then going into my corporate job. I took a position I was very well over qualified for, but I had to take it. I had to get a job and I promoted in my corporation in twelve weeks. I tripled my income in twelve weeks and people thought I was crazy for going for a leadership position when I basically came in as a part time and I thought no, like, I have the abilities, I have the knowledge, I have the character, I have the skill set. I'm going to go for it, and I got it. And so, being a corporate leader for four years, I've really combined a lot of the lessons learned and I had to leave the corporation because I just I'm just an entrepreneurial person. It's in my spirit to do my own thing and I thought, let me take all these lessons, let me start my next business. Will write the book through it, but let me help other women now. Let me help other women now break free from staring at a clock every day behind a desk that they're just not inspired by, and let them know exactly what does it take to break free and start your own business. And for most people it's not really what they think, and that's why I put this book together. Yep, well, you so go ahead. No going to say so. You have a pretty cool acronym for the eight steps, right. It's mighty pull aside, yes, which Mighty Posta, which is butterfly. Yeah, I thought that was beautiful. Like that. That metaphor is so great in general, like, you know, going from the cutter the Caterpillar. You could have called it like eight steps to going from caterpilled Bo, but you just you take the entire process and you just like take the most beautiful part of it. And you give us these eight steps. Yes, because you know, with with mighty Posa, to me it's the butterfly effect, which in essence is change one thing, change everything. Mm and my belief is that one thing is you. It's really just you, and you can totally change the design of your life, and in the book I give you the tools and the steps to do that. And so I did. I put my eight steps to go with the acronym Mighty Posa and to just touch based real quick for any of your listeners, like the M is, magnify your desire, which is really like stop wishing already. You know, I don't know about you, but if I go to a mall, I do not like to window shop. Okay, if I'm going, I'm going because I want to get something. I know what I'm looking for, I want to go get it. And most of us, you know, just window shop when it comes to our life, where we look from the outside and just stare in at all the things that we want or that we wish were different, and instead it's a no, go in and get it right. No, go out there, make the change. So that's that's the focus behind that step. And then I talked about, you know, acknowledge your inner voice, which means that little voice inside your head which we all have. You know, that's the voice that told me I was going to write a book and it was going to be called broken stronger. Well, if I didn't acknowledge that, if I didn't respect an honor where I knew that was coming from, I wouldn't be talking to you today. And so many of us, and I'm sure yourself included, we hear those ideas. Sometimes the ideas seems so big we think we're not worthy. You're capable of achieving them, but I teach you how to how to listen to those...

...and actually act on them, and then you know, you know without going through every single step, but you know, I talked about revealing your strength and when you go back and look at some of the things that you've gotten through that maybe at one time in your life you thought you were never going to be able to get through this. I mean we've all had those moments too, but when you can identify that, hell, yeah, you did get through it, you're strong like take that strength, use that pain and make it count for something, and that's what I've done, like with the death of my husband, like make that pain count, don't just dwell in it, use it. And so we go through a couple other steps that identify your fears, which means, like, if you ever feel like you keep hitting that brick wall, like you take a step for word in the boom, now you're like two steps back. There's a reason for that. There is an actual reason for that, and in order to break free and break through that wall, you have to know what to do when you get there, like you have to know why you're there and how to work through it. And and it's just a whole mindset. So these are critical steps that will actually change the design of your life. When when people think of starting a business, they think of a website, they think of a logo, they think of a catchy title, and that is not business at all. Those are just the little sugarcoatings on the top. If you don't have the solid foundation and place, your business will never succeed and grow. So I focus on let's build a strong foundation, because then then the options are limitless, like your potential has no cap. So that's what I help people with. I couldn't agree with you more. I mean I think people also forget that when businesses, the percentage of businesses that actually fail are pretty high, but the percentage of people who have started their own businesses and become you know, they fail and then they start another one, they fail and they start another one. Then now it's like the second or third time they try. Why does it work? And it's like because they were always grounded in that strong foundation, because they knew that they were going to be great at some point. I think that's such a great point that you brought brought up. It's like you know when to hit that brick wall. Are you going to stop just because you failed, or was that your purpose to be in with? Like maybe you needed to pivot, maybe that wasn't or you just need to shift. And if you're not in that right mindset, if you don't have that right foundation, that pivots going to be really hard and it might take you longer to get out of your own way right right. And one of the other things I like to really point out in in ask people when they start on this journey is do you want to be a business owner or do you want to be an entrepreneur? Because those are two completely different things. And a lot of times people don't recognize that. And then the thing is is when people start a business, they almost just trade working for someone else to working for themselves, meaning now they're on the clock for themselves, they end up working more hours, probably for less pay, and they are connected like seven. And that's why sometimes people think you're crazy for wanting to start a business on your own. Yeah, that's trying to just self employ yourself, whereas an entrepreneurial mindset is going to develop ways to generate income even if you're not there. Like it's a it's not like you're having to physically work all these hours. It's designing the business to work for you, and if you don't know these things going into it, you can very easily get sucked in to working more hours, tirelessly for less pay, and so I really think it's critical to get those things in place before you set out...

...to begin. Wow. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I've met so many people who get to that point of burnout and they're just not knowing how to scale. Yeah, and understanding that it's okay to let go of some of the responsibility because they're a free that the other person isn't going to manage the way they do, and it's like, do you want to manage? Like? Why? What's your purpose of wanting to own a business? Because you just want to work for your sack? Or do you want to actually have an empire? To girl from right, like I want to. I want so, yeah, me too, I'm right there with you. Well, hopefully this mook is. You're well on your way with your first book at number one in two categories. Yeah, and that is just I mean it's such a great accomplishment. And you were just picked up by a national publisher, right, yes, I was. I received my letter in the mail just this past week. Actually picked up by a national publisher. We're having our phone call in the next couple weeks and I believe my book will be in book stores, you know, in several in a few months. Everything takes time, of course, but we're actually working on my book signing. So we'll be in book signings in my local book stores. And Yeah, it's it's happening. It's for realso well, you have a friend down in Houston that will be at your book side, of you, the first one, with my first copy of yeah, absolutely, yeah, definitely, and next time I'm out in Texas. I'll definitely look you up so we can, you know, get together. Yeah, Oh, I told you, this friendship has started and it's going forever. Girl, you're stuck with me now, absolutely, ask my oh yeah, that sounds good. It's a jury whenever you're my friend. You can't just be my friend and that's it and that's it. Well, and I am such y'all hear me now? Yeah, like anybody that knows me knows, I'm always talking about locking arms. Let's lock arms lift each other up. You know, we're not always at our best every day, and when you're locking arms with everyone striving to be their best, on the days that you're low, they're they're holding you up, and it works both ways, and so I'm honored to be able to call you friend. This will, this is awesome. Oh my gosh, thank you so much for that that. You know, when you said the locking arms, you know in the past I wasn't the best like female supporter or woman supporter, and it wasn't necessarily that I was against my sister's it was more of like we are almost taught too feud against each other, like we're like crabs in a barrel instead of, like you said, yunking arms and lifting each other up, and right now is the perfect time to do that. You know, if you see a woman who's in need of something and you have the ability to support her, why not let her stand on your shoulders? She'll probably turn back down and pick you up after that. Yep, absolutely, absolutely, and one of the things that's in the book really kind of talks about that. As far as business and your success and whether it be relationships, connections, all of that, you, each of us, are the selling point. It's each of us. So, you know, I work with so many people that are in like direct sales or multilevel marketing, you know, type businesses, and a lot of times they lead with the product. You know, whether it be, you know, here's a here is a makeup or here's a face, face cream, or like, they lead with the product, but the thing is is we could go anywhere and get that product. Lead with yourself, lead with who you are, and I think that when people recognize their uniqueness and how awesome they freaking are, it's easier to lock arms with other people instead of feel like you have to compete with someone because there's only one you. So there's...

...absolutely nobody else that has what you have, and that's what builds your clientele, that's what builds your team. You know, it's you. It's not your product, it's not your service, and so I really focus on working on the individual, because when you grow yourself, that's when your business grows. HMM. So wow. Well, you often do some some coaching as well. Right like that. That's your main your main business now is consultant. Yes, so what kind of clients can normally take on? The thing that's going to sound kind of funny is I prefer to talk with women and kind of feel where they're coming from, what are their needs and if I honestly feel like I can't serve them, if I can't guarantee that I can help them, I will be honest about that and I will try to to direct them to people that I think might be a better fit for them. So to me, it's never about getting on the phone call and trying to make a sale. It is not that at all. It's about, let me help you become what it is that you're seeking to become. And so, first off I'd like to work with women because I feel like I can relate because I'm a woman right. So that's like my first thing. My second thing is, you know, I've I've been through a divorce. I am a Latina in a in a in a place where there's not many minorities at all, so I understand that piece of it too. But I'm really looking to work with those women that feel like they have just been knocked on their ass a time or two and just have lost that belief in themselves that they truly have what it takes to stand back up and move forward. And we've all been there and I have gotten back up and I have moved forward and therefore that is my gift. And so that's the that's the person I'm looking for is the woman that is I'm sorry, I don't know if there's a beep going on. It's okay, Noori, but I'm looking for that woman that is truly going to work uninspired every day, like you know, just going to a job knowing that there's something inside of him that is screaming to get out and they just don't know what to do. That's where I'm like, let me help you, let me help you, and it's not saying that you're going to quit your job tomorrow. Now, it took me about a year to put my plan in place, but it's very possible if you know what you're doing, and knowing that my husband died, we're not promised tomorrow. So for me there's an absolute urgency, especially for women, to just quit wasting your time. You've got what it takes. If the idea is in you, you're already equipped to do it. You just you just need help, and that's where I come in. Well, I am so glad to hear that you are inspiring and creating a new wave of women who are in power to do exactly what they're put on this earth to do. Yeah, and yeah, you're right. I mean you just you got to quit wasting your time. It's so valuable and it's so short that we sometimes allow ourselves to focus on just the things that don't matter, like the weight and the heaviness of things that really, tomorrow might not even matter. You know absolutely, and you know as women, we talked about like not always being there to support each other. One of the biggest things is a lot of times we don't get started because we don't want to be seeing starting...

...at the bottom. MMM, it's an EGO. It's an ego thing. We just we just don't want to be seeing looking silly starting at the bottom. And everybody starts at the bottom, like nobody starts for you know anything without first starting and fumbling at the bottom. And if you got if you got strong women locking arms with you during those moments, you're not down at the bottom for long, let me tell you it. Take the lessons learned and apply them and it doesn't take long for you to get exactly where it is you want to go. Yeah, that's such a good point. I know when I first started this podcast, I was like people are going to think I'm crazy, what am I doing? And it literally lit a ball of fire under my behind. I was like I'm going to learn how to make a website, I'm going to do this, I'm gonna do that, and I literally didn't sleep for three days straight because I felt so re energized. And now I was like I am not going to let this technological thing that I don't under and whole be back and I don't care if I look crazy to everybody on social media. Who Cares? You know what, they're not loving it and I absolutely and it's in those moments. I was probably up three days working on my own stuff. We could have been helping each other out at least been like come on, you can do this. And then now you got this, we're gonna pump it up and ourselves motivated because the Oh, there you go. Definitely be a little and I don't know if you can attest this, can be a little lonely sometimes when you're doing something that not the rest of your friends are doing and they don't understand, and it's like you do have to build your own community around the creativity that you are making. Right like, for example, like you know, I told you was so excited to talk to you because I'm wanted to find another especially Hispanic lettina authors. Yeah, you did it and you're doing all these things and you know you planned it out and you had this vision and this idea and you know, once you're around that energy of like creativity and momentum, yeah, it's almost hard to stop it because you start taking everything if you along the way. It's so weird. Yeah, and one of one of the examples, I believe I put in the book is imagine like a bunch of flowers, like maybe you planted like ten flowers in a pot or something, but only one of them you are feeding like miracle grow or some sort of thing to. Okay, so that one flower is going to probably grow so much taller, blooms so much brighter, so much bigger. Not saying that the other ones aren't going to grow, but that one that is fed nurtured with all that good stuff is just going to take off. That's what happens to us as individuals if we're feeding our spirit, we're feeding our knowledge, we're doing all of this. But it can be lonely, because if you're surrounded with a bunch of girlfriends or family and none of them are doing anything to try to get ahead or improve and you are, you're going to find yourself kind of distance from everyone and it's it can be lonely, it can be sad, but don't hold yourself back just because there are others that don't want to go where you're going. Like you'll find other people at the same place that you are. You just might find them randomly and across the country. How me and you have found each other. Yeah, but it happens. Yeah, yeah, I which. I love to share that story right like I literally have only done. At that time I'd had, well, I guess, like five episodes and this is my seven.
