In May of 2017 I kicked off a podcast with my amazing friend and Co-host Elisa. I had reached out to her after coming across her online store Canela Vintage on Instagram. We spoke over the phone and met up for ice cream and I told her that I’ve been thinking about starting a podcast to extend the Empowering Women segment that I have on my blog. She absolutely loved the idea and wanted to be apart of the project.. and the rest was history. After about two episodes of Girl Talk y Más we knew it was something special and Nadia joined our Podcast as a special correspondent and covers special topics from dating to work/life balance and self empowerment. They are both amazing ladies and I’m honored to have them be apart of this project and on this journey with me.
