This event is about empowering and helping creatives, artists, and filmmakers women to be a better version of themselves and believe in themselves, their talent, and their art so they can grow their bank account.
I am originally from Mexico; I have worked in the film industry since 2008. I have participated in over a hundred film releases, including The Twilight Saga, The Impossible, Divergent, RED, Last Vegas, Maya the Bee, and many independent films.
In 2014 I moved to Spain, where I studied Advertising at the Complutense University of Madrid and specialized in Digital Marketing by Google and IAB Spain.
And then, life happened, and I moved (again) to Copenhagen in 2017, where I had a creative digital marketing agency; I grew this business from 0 – 155k USD with no network, living in a new country, and I didn’t speak the language.
In 2021 I decided to certify as an Entrepreneurship and Business Life Coach because even though my business was successful, I knew I could help creatives and entrepreneurs improve their mindset and follow their dreams more profoundly.
As I always say: You are the main character of your film. Make it a blockbuster.
This is an event created for women who are part of the creative and film industry. During these hours together, you will learn how to overcome your fears, mental blocks, and negative beliefs, and you will have access to practical business and marketing trainings to reach success on your own terms.
My mission with this event is that you take action, and when the event ends, you feel so motivated and inspired that you don’t have another option than to take the necessary steps to reach your goals.
Get ready to be the best version of yourself, and prepare for the massive change you will feel inside.
This part is about meditation, mindset, and the practicalities of business. Speakers will help you understand your subconscious mind and how limiting beliefs affect your day-to-day life so you can take action in your business and feel free when you are doing marketing.
This is the professional part, where the fantastic women share their stories with us, the ugly side of being a woman in this industry, and how their mindset ritual helps them to overcome fear. Also, you will be able to dive inside different creative businesses and listen to practical advice.
