Helping businesses create a strong brand.
Every year, we celebrate the achievements of our clients and their contribution to the local economy at our annual success celebration. This year we will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary from when we were initially created to improve the technology digital divide in our community to now evolved to help business owners better understand how to run a successful business. Leading to our big commemoration, we will be interviewing a client to highlight their success story each week, 15 in total. If you missed last week, you can read about Brenda Carrera HERE.
Nayeli Gallegos is president of Red Carpet Productions, a brand management agency that provides promotional and marketing services to liquor companies wanting to launch new brands or reinforce their brand presence in a particular market.
Below is a Question & Answer we recently had with Nayeli.
Q: How has your career added value to your life? To the community around you?
A: I worked in the non-profit world for 12 years before starting my business, always working around entrepreneurship and the small business community, which is one of my passions. With my business now, I get to help other entrepreneurs that are launching their brands and products into a very competitive industry. We are also constantly creating jobs as we subcontract hundreds of people for our promotions services. Also, I try to stay involved with EGBI, because I truly believe that by helping other people start their businesses, we are helping families and the community at large. I also like to support initiatives that promote bilingualism in our kids.
Q: How long have you been working with EGBI and how have they helped you?
A: I have worked with EGBI even before I started my own business. I have seen the evolution of the organization from its inception and have benefited from its services since I started my company in 2013. EGBI helped me put theory into practice, they are very good at translating complex information into easy to digest modules that you can apply as needed when running a business. EGBI listens to me when I need help and provides valuable advice. We have also benefited from their virtual office services.
Q: What would you like everyone to know about you or your business?
A: In my efforts to creating engagement and empowering the ladies who work with Red Carpet Productions, I recently started a community of Spirit HERoes by RCP, a community that recognizes its members as the company’s most important asset and highlights influential women in the spirits industry.
Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: I think my biggest accomplishment is an on-going effort, to set a good example for my daughters. To show them to be thankful to God for the talents you were given and to put them into good use. To set goals, have dreams, be confident, fearless & always work hard. To be loving and compassionate, to spend time with the ones you love and do the things that make you happy. I work on this every day, and I think they see it.
Q: If you could have any super power, what would it be?
A: If I had a superpower, I would like to be able to be in two places at the same time, so I could also be with my family in Mexico.
