Mariana Konsolos, born in Montevideo, Uruguay, grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. Being surrounded by those who pursued their own passions and lead their own successful businesses sparked and subsequently fueled the entrepreneurial fire deep inside of her. Setting off on her journey with a healthy interest in Architecture, she began studying in Uruguay for two years before emigrating to Israel to further her education at the Technion for a year.
Upon her return to Uruguay, she reached a turning point and gave up her studies in order to work as an employee for a Real Estate company in Punta del Este.
Mariana's story is one of overcoming obstacles and pursuing happiness. From bouncing back after a failed marriage, raising her daughter as a single parent and opening several companies to uprooting her life in order to move from Uruguay to Canada to be with her true love, Mariana's story is bound to inspire and captivate.
Retiring in 2015 after successfully selling her accessories company, she journeyed to Barcelona to write a book of her memoirs. With an incredible amount of heart, a healthy dose of soul, and a huge scoop of passion, she is finally about to release her incredible new book to world, which will be published later this year in 2017.
The video below is an incredible introduction to give you a sneak peek into Mariana's new book.
Mariana continues to inspire immigrants, new entrepreneurs, seniors and the general public through her workshops and speaking events. She was nominated for several awards throughout the years and has inspired thousands of women around the world from all walks of life.
Her dream is to continue empowering women to live FREE while remaining loyal to their values and true to themselves.
Uno de mis mejores recuerdos, eran los viernes de tardecita, cuando llegábamos de Montevideo acalorados y muertos de cansancio a Punta. Entonces parábamos en la Mansa y nos tirábamos al agua calentita para darnos un chapuzón apurado antes que el sol se ocultase para no morirnos de frío.
Sin darnos cuenta estábamos inmersos en la naturaleza, en el mar y en la arena. El sol era la fiesta del fin del día. Todos los del grupo nos quedábamos en la playa guitarreando y esperando a los grandiosos atardeceres. No había relojes, ni apuro para llegar a ninguna parte. ¡Estábamos presentes!
