The areas of experience that I want to share.

Digital Marketing

My social media and blogging hobby pushed me to learn more about Digital Marketing. Different online digital marketing courses from Google Digital GarageHubspotSemrushHootsuite, Coursera, & SocialMe helped me to gain deep knowledge about this complex world with topics such as Social Media, SEO, SEM and Content Creation. This self preparation helped me to find a job at ARP Europe GmbH as Digital Communications & Content Specialist.

Entrepreneurship

Being part of a family of entrepreneurs taught me the difficult proccess of entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial life. Also, as graduate student of the business school Tec de Monterrey and with participation in INADEM mexican governmental programs for entrepreneurs, I understand the importance of this topic in terms of social and economic welfare. My challenge still remains on keep building a venture.

Family Business

35 year of my family’s work to create Muebleria Karina, a furniture business, and Liebe Café, a recent creation restaurant, both in Agua Prieta, Mexico. To be part of a family business is also synonym of growing with it. The ownership, family and business model show how complex family businesses could be, and it is. Life experience have showed that the most difficult area to manage is actually the family and not the business itself.

Professional Development

Having friends during my professional studies at Tec de Monterrey, Hochschule Pforzheim and Hochschule Heilbronn have inspired me create content that could be benefitial also for their career development.  Knowledge sharing between the network peers is essential to grow as a group.
