We had the good fortune of connecting with Marcela Cervantes and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Marcela, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
It started in my teen years , wanted to do something for myself independently I’ve always been but as how I saw myself in the future doing , working and living. After dropping law school , took the time for me , to discover and learn new things ,opened even more my mind , experienced the magic of the unknown as I started from cero. First certified as a makeup artist as I entered college again decided my major in Marketing and as I was studying and working , certified in Parsons , University of Maryland , Complutense de Madrid via online as launching my own brand UNIQUE By Marcela started as a blog to inspire people to keep it real while dressing from their personal style , now we have different areas from image consulting , personal shopping , styling for public figures & editorial , online store and now a new platform of online webinars that unites the best from the beauty , fashion and health industry from binational region, this has happend in just four years with ups , downs , don’t like the word failure because my way of seeing it is as another step of learning and forward that helps me grow, I loved how everything aligned to be where I am today. All the areas of opportunity , challenges , laughter , fun , sadness , art gave me what I most love , is just a part of me that I love sharing with the world to not only satisfy with an experience throught out a service or product but to make them feel their unique self.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Don’t ever give up. be true to yourself because that is what makes the difference and sets aside from others. there is always going to be challenges , select them by priority. The name was selected since there is a fascination for uniqueness. the greatness in details , what is not common and out of this world.
