Thank you to #WeAllGrowLatina, I attended a screening, sponsored by HBO, on the new hit series, Los Espookys. Los Espookys is a new, Spanish-language comedy show, the first of it’s kind. It is now airing on both HBO and HBO Latino. The show is about a group of friends who turn their love of horror into a peculiar business.
Why is this show a big deal?
It is important because it’s a Spanish-language show airing on a predominately English-language network.
The show is a comedy that helps deflate some of the negative stereo-types people have of us Latinos.
Keep watching so we get more seasons and episodes of our gente on the big screen!!
Wait, did I mention its the first Spanish-language series on HBO!!!
Today, I attended
the Conchitas + Capital Event. This event had three main components: brunch, networking,
and learning! You can’t learn without a yummy brunch and of course a mimosa (or
two) on the side. The focus of the event was to receive some tips on funding
your dream, for example your dream car, dream house, dream trip or whichever commodity
you desire. There was a panel of speakers who could be of great resource for
loans, buying a home, lawyer advise and more. The speakers shared their expertise
and some inspirational messages to stay grounded on who you are and what you
want. Not only that, but you had the opportunity to talk and mingle with some
women who own their own business or seeking to own their own business. I’m
beyond proud to see all these Latin owned businesses. We are coming up and no
one can stop us. It brings my heart warmth, joy and my eyes with a few happy tears.
There were also a few men who joined the event. Shout out to the all the men supporting
The event was created and hosted by the great Eva Macias. Eva Macias, a financial advisor who has been helping Latinas on their finances. Now, of course she helps anyone who seeks help from her, but it is important to highlight the importance of how she has helped Latinas re-think their finances. In the Latin community, money can be a somewhat of a taboo subject. Eva, with her best-selling book, A Latino’s Guide to Money, has helped women from around the U.S.A, be mindful about spending habits and by doing so to create a financial plan to oversee finances. In doing so it will help set focus on how money is spent and how to spend it effectively to fund your goals.
I had a great time and met many wonderful women. I intent to collaboration with many of the women I spoke to and interview them as well for them to share their story and inspire anyone who needs some inspiration. Inspirations comes from unexpected place, its magical.
