Lessons learned from my father - Stories from 3 Latino entrepreneurs.

by Janny Perez June 13, 2018

It takes a certain type of person to be an entrepreneur, freelancer, or contractor.  The uncertainty of tomorrow, the desire to take action and go after your dreams, the rejections, the highs and lows are all things we have to deal with.  Our mothers and fathers had a huge impact on us as children.  You take what you've learned and you want push harder, aim higher, and go farther, why?  Maybe because you are now a mamá or papá.  Maybe you want to make your familia proud or maybe you simply want to break a cycle and prove that yes you can.  Whatever the reason, there are lessons that you can learn.  These are the lessons that I've learned from my father...

25 Unique Hispanic Baby Boy Names

by Janny Perez May 31, 2018

When I was pregnant, before we knew we were having a girl, we (well I) had some boy names picked out. Good thing we had a girl cause those names were not going to be easy for mis padres (my parents).... we named her Victoria Grace and my parents only butcher Grace, not so bad.

I've compiled a list from top baby name app "Baby Names" of rare but up trending Spanish & Latin baby boy names and narrowed it down to 25. Maybe you'll find your baby's name here :)

How to prepare your toddler for a new sibling. - Un nuevo hermanito o hermanita.

by Janny Perez May 23, 2018

I have one 3 year old daughter named Victoria (in my belly below). I would love to have another child, right about now but for health reasons, we have decided to only have one child.  Many of my friends are now having a second baby and I wanted to address some of their concerns.

Like them, many parents have a second child when their firstborn is 2-4 years old so there isn’t a huge difference in age when the children grow up.  I asked my sister, an 18 year experienced preschool teacher, to share her advice and her experiences with you in order to help you when you're ready to have bebé #2.  Check out this month’s Dasy’s Corner.

My Latina Mom Said What? - Powerful Latinas Share their Mom's Most Memorable Sayings

by Janny Perez May 10, 2018 1 Comment

Growing up with a Latina mom means that you likely have a long list of sayings and things your mom used to say and do that maybe doesn't make sense unless you're Hispanic.  Some of us experienced the infamous chancla (slipper), or the vaporú (Vapor Rub) cure all, and maybe your heart tingles when your hear Sana Sana Colita de Rana (Heal Heal Little Tail of the Frog), I told you it may not make sense! 

So for Mother's Day I wanted to honor and pay an homage to our Latina moms by sharing stories from powerful Latinas that I admire.  See what they have to say...

Yes, it’s very cool, but what’s not so cool is trying to help my 3 year old cope when her daddy’s away for a few days or sometimes a few months on tour.

So what are some things you can do to help your child during short or long trips? This is what I’ve been implementing for the past 3 years.

6 Hispanic- Latino Birthday Traditions To Pass Down

by Janny Perez April 04, 2018 1 Comment

My little girl turned 3 on March 27.  We had been celebrating for what seemed like for a month.  Birthdays have always been very special events growing up Latina in Miami.  We adopted Colombian traditions, mixed with Cuban traditions (it was Miami), mixed with American traditions and created our own.  But it got me thinking, how do other Latin countries celebrate birthdays and what do we all have in common?

25 Unique Hispanic Baby Girl Names

by Janny Perez March 22, 2018

When I was pregnant with my daughter, alot of fun went into picking her name.  We wanted to make sure that we picked a name that was easy for my Hispanic family to pronounce (cause I've heard them butcher quite a few).  I wanted a not too common name, somewhat Hispanic or at least easy to pronounce in Español, and not so strange that my kid would be picked on.  I've compiled a list from top baby name app "Baby Names" of rare but up trending Spanish & Latin names.  Maybe you'll find your baby's name here :)
