I experimented with event planning, influencers outreach, and agency management. In the process, I learned to manage opinion leaders, high-performance providers, and handled big budgets like a boss.
I was making money doing something I really liked.
All in all, I couldn’t asked for more.
Except for one thing: I was not in a good financial health.
I was not in debt, but I was pissed at how little savings I had.
I felt like I did everything right and was really confused at how this could happen.
At the same time, I heard about a company in Barcelona dedicated to raising awareness about financial technologies that make managing money a lot easier so people can get more out of life.
They also focused in financial services for women, and they were hiring a marketing position.
Marketing. Women. Finances. Put it all together, and I found my sweet spot!
Where I am today
Taking everything I learned from each step along the way, I now work at Strands —a FinTech that helps bank users gain control of their finances.
It wasn’t easy to learn about the technology behind the business, but it’s been worth it.
In April 2017, I moved to Columbus, Ohio, with my boyfriend Pablo. He’s an engineer at the same company. He builds software, I market it. A pretty good team after all!
