Angela's story

I am a single mother who raised two daughters, one graduated and the young one still studies in a local university. I worked as a Montessori teacher for 28 years. I worked close to my girls and helped in their educational experience. The fact of working in creative environments thrilled me. The strong economic downfall in Puerto Rico at 2012 left me unemployed due to lack of enrolled students in the school I worked. With some time at my side I created Montessori workshops for homeschooling moms and also became creative in the kitchen doing things that are rare to find commercially, like home made Greek yogurt. Its success was so overwhelming that I decided to enter an entrepreneurship workshop. My business knowledge was minus zero! The amount of pressure being unemployed led me to meditation classes and eventually became an instructor. In that scenario I met the man who guided me polish my business, today my husband and my future Son-in-law. Finding inner peace thru yoga and meditation helped us all and now we have a family business. After surviving two hurricanes our working team is stronger, we are passionate with our business and with our effort we can support the broken economy of our island. Spreading health helps us all heal.
