Introduce yourself! Who are you?
Hi! I am Ursula. I am a 26 year old online entrepreneur from Houston, Tx.
What is one thing no one really knows about you?
I am part Arab, part German, and I spent my childhood in Central America!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Don’t be too fancy. Basically always work hard and always be kind.
What would you say to 16 year old you?
The only reason why you feel like you don’t “fit in” is because you’re different, but that’s what’s going to make you great in the near future!
What is your greatest fear?
Have you ever had anyone doubt you? How did that make you feel?
Absolutely! Honestly, it gives me fuel to work harder!
What message do you think every woman should hear?
Your’e stronger than your doubts and fears, work toward what you most want in this life and don’t let anyone or anything stop you.
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
My family. Ha-ha. Houston, Texas is a big city. I would rather live somewhere in Europe, I love its charm. But I feel at home where my family is.
What do you love most about yourself?
My self -awareness! I think people lack that therefore they settle in life not working toward their dreams.
Do you remember a specific time you overcame adversity?
Abso-freaking-lutley. Starting with the fact that my parents moved to the States with $300 and 4 kids to feed. Seeing my parents work hard to keep us all safe til they got back on their feet gave me the strength to overcome just about any “problems” I have today. There will always be adversity, it’s how you look at it that will determine whether you make it or not. I chose to grow from it.
What is the biggest thing you’ve learned along the way?
Everything is figureoutable (like Marie Forleo says)
Why do you love to travel?
Because it opens up my mind to new possibilities! Something about traveling sparks my creativity!
What motivates you most?
Seeing my parents sacrifice so much for us and giving us the opportunity to create something out of ourselves.
How do you manage your work-life balance?
Is there such thing? Ha-ha. I think it’s just about doing your best every day and prioritizing. Things will keep changing and evolving, it’s a matter of adjusting and keep moving forward.
What is your favorite meal?
Spaghetti and meatballs!
What do you do daily to grow and move forward?
Oh boy. I do quit a bit! Running my own business requires lots of work. I try to schedule in what I need to do everyday from marketing to working with clients. I think its about figuring out what you need to do each week to keep seeing progress. Being intentional with your day and making sure that what you’re doing is helping you move forward with your goals.
What is one thing people would be surprised to hear about you?
I am very transparent with my audience! Not sure how I can surprise them at this point!
If you weren’t doing the job you have now, what would you be doing?
Figuring out how to have my job… ha!
What is something on your bucket list?
To live in Europe with my family for a Summer!
What are your biggest passions?
Helping other women build a business they love 😊
