I was so excited to hear that Hispanicize was coming to Texas this year, I did attend the one in Miami a few years ago and had a blast. So when I heard Hispanicize was coming here I was so happy and couldn’t wait to attend. Thankfully for Prudential they sponsored a few influencer’s to attend and i’m grateful I was one of them. The moment I entered the event I saw everyone walking around already networking . You can really see Prudentials presence at the event once you walked in.I learned so much at the Hispanicize event, about being an entrepreneur and going for your dreams no matter what. But also planning for them any way you can and saving up for whats important. I learned to take my passion and run with it.
The whole day was so inspiring and got me off my booty to work that much harder for what I want in life and always be prepared. After partaking in the wonderful networking breakfast in the morning, I headed to the Prudential lounge to check it out.
First thing I saw was the dream board they had up, where you can post your dreams and passions. It took me a minute to really think about what I wanted for me and to stick it on the board. Seeing everyone’s dreams on there really put some things in perspective for me and pushed me to pursue my passion even more. Which is the help people save money on everything in life. Show them how they can budget everything and save more by planning everything out and saving.
First and foremost I want to get my finances in order so I can achieve some of my dreams and practice what I preach to others about saving money. I’m not going to lie it’s been a while since I checked my credit score or any past debits I may have incurred when I was younger. I do not keep track of my finances like I should.
What I learned in the panel that Prudential had with the Hispanicize team, was that you need to budget for your family then your business. Say no, I know it’s so hard in this day in age of everything being at our fingertips like instagram or facebook with links to buy things with a touch of a button. But saying no will help you get on the right track and save you some needed moolah!

I’ve had to learn that the hard way and say no to using my credit card as much and use it only for emergencies. Spend only one what you need not for what you want right now. The panel was full of entrepreneurs like Cristy Clavijo-Kish, Elayna Fernandez, Eddie Garcia and Mario Yearwood who spoke about the importance of saving and paying your debt off completely.
