About Gloria

I don't have your typical executive bio or rags-to-riches tale. My life journey began when I was a teenage mother, labeled as just another statistic. According to the statistics, my chances of finishing high school were only 40%, my chances of completing college before turning 30 were a mere 2%, and I had a 60% chance of living in poverty. But guess what? Those statistics were completely wrong! At one point, I even thought that these facts gave me an unfair advantage. But in reality, everyone has their own unique unfair advantage that gives them a competitive edge in life, business, and career. It's essential to intentionally maximize this attribute to its fullest potential.


To become a great leader, you must master being a servant to all.

The turning point in my life came when I adopted a Growth Mindset, which instilled in me the belief that dedication and hard work could help me develop any skill. This attitude fueled my desire to learn, leading me to think differently and be more receptive to innovation and progress. I am now living a life without regrets, and I am grateful to God for the grace he has given me to serve others in the business world. Every endeavor I undertake is aimed at improving the lives of others.
