Marlene M Gonzalez Life Coaching Group LLC President

Being Hispanic…Does it have any influence on your business?
Absolutely, I am very proud of my culture and heritage. My business is to help Latino become whole leaders by creating and sustaining a long-lasting vision for personal and professional success. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2004; The Latino population is roughly 44.3 million people or 14.8% of the US population, US’s largest minority group. Even though there has been a steady growth in the past few decades, we need to advocate for increasing representation in higher-level and better-paying jobs for Latinos in Corporate America.

In the face of adversity, how do you decide to keep going?
In accepting what I can and can’t change about the situation and look for ways to embrace the challenge and learn from it.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced?
There is a dicho in Spanish: “El que no habla, Dios no lo oye”, if “You would not say anything, people won’t hear you”; so my biggest challenge as a manager was to “Speak Up” and make my presence known throughout the organization.

If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
I would have pursued my Coaching and Consulting business sooner in to help shape the future Latinos Leaders and facilitate opportunities for them.

What was your childhood ambition?
My childhood ambition was to become an astronaut and fly to the moon.

Tell us about three people that you admire?
The three people that I admire the most are Jesus Christ for his humbleness and greatness; my dad for his endless teachings when I was growing up and my husband for his unconditional love, admiration and support.

For meetings: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
For meetings I enjoy the early lunches that combines people, healthy food and business.

What sacrifices on your personal life did you have to make in order to become a business success?

The biggest sacrifice was to leave my country Venezuela, my extended family and friends in search for better opportunities.

What is your favorite quote?
“You are the master of your own destiny” “ Tu eres el arquitecto de tu propio destino”.

Is it difficult to be unconventional?

Being unconventional is a unique state of mind for our professional coaching services by helping clients develop into successful leaders achieving more in their lives, careers or organizations.

Biggest mistake made?
My biggest mistake in the corporate world was to learn the hard way how to play the “Game of Politics” and choose my battles carefully.

Do you consider yourself an innovator? Why?
Yes. I’ve learned to simplified things and look at them in different angles, dimensions and levels of complexities to offer the best possible solutions to my clients.
