Women Who Disrupt

Latino Wall Street is Reinventing The Face of Financial Education With Gabriela Berrospi and Ana Patricia Gámez

In an interesting online interview, Gabriela Berrospi, founder of the Latino Wall Street movement and recent member of the Forbes Finance Council, talks with Ana Patricia Gámez about business opportunities in times of crisis.

It’s undoubtedly an inspiring conversation between two young Latinas, giving listeners valuable lessons regarding new trends in entrepreneurship and the use of digital media to leverage projects in the midst of a harsh global context such as the pandemic.

This interview could be the source of inspiration that so many women need to take that first leap into the business world, an environment that, thanks to people like Gabriela, is constantly evolving and creating more and more opportunities for women to participate.

Gaby’s story is a vivid reflection of how ideas should be capitalized on to generate wealth as well as add value to the community.

Gabriela Berrospi: a Latina on Wall Street

Gabriela’s story begins in her hometown, Lima. Gabriela grew up in the Peruvian capital and attended the British School of Lima, where, thanks to her high academic performance, she was awarded a scholarship to study finance at New York University in the U.S.

The strong influence of this financial landscape soon led her to start investing in the stock market, gaining experience in the complicated world of business from a ripe young age. This experience would influence her next stage of life, resulting in her leading a project that seeks to democratize financial education among Latina women, not only in the United States but around the world.

So, Gabriela founded her own movement: Latino Wall Street, a platform that aims to include more women in the world of U.S. financial investments. In addition, at the beginning of 2020, Gabriela was selected as one of the Top 10 women entrepreneurs in the U.S. by Yahoo Finance.

Her mission: women’s empowerment in the business world

Latino Wall Street is a movement with purpose, which transcends traditional online financial education and focuses on a key element, which could be critical in upcoming generations: female empowerment in generating wealth through investment.

Through her movement, Gaby wants to show women in the U.S. and the world that we’re at an opportune moment to invest and that digital tools make all this possible from home.

Gaby’s program encourages women to generate additional income from home or even use investments as passive income, while maintaining an office job or developing a professional career.

The movement’s growth over the last few years has been remarkable and Gaby has been in contact with female icons of the Latina community across the U.S., including Ana Patricia Gámez, model, TV presenter and recently-launched online entrepreneur with several interesting projects.

Gabriela interviews Ana Patricia Gámez about her business ventures

Gabriela interviewed Ana Patricia Gámez on her YouTube channel: Gaby Wall Street.

The conversation revolved around Ana Patricia’s entrepreneurial beginnings during her childhood and how her work as a TV presenter at the Univision Network prompted her to start her own online venture: Beashon Boutique.

During the conversation, Ana Patricia highlighted the stories that have inspired her to get involved in investment projects, beyond her career in international television.

Ana Patricia said that she has made the best of the current global crisis, reinventing her products to adapt to new needs. During the pandemic, her online boutique has experienced some of its best sales reports in its history.

“… I want to mention that I opened my boutique 3 years after starting the project… because you always waits for the perfect moment to launch and there’s never really a perfect moment. If we wait until everything is perfectly aligned, then we take too long.

I tell you this because people sometimes think that you start a business with all the possibilities and you don’t. Most businesses start little by little and get better in the process.”

Ana Patricia spoke of how she decided to start her online boutique.

This interview with Ana Patricia Gámez is a clear reflection of the message that Gabriela seeks to convey to the Hispanic community with her program: it’s possible to reinvent your income and generate wealth from home, even without previous experience.

How do you reinvent your sources of income in times of crisis?

During her career, Gabriela has dedicated herself to training thousands of people on how to invest in the stock market and other investment markets. As a result, she has created invaluable content with financial strategies and advice for those looking to safely reinvent their finances.

Here are some tips Gaby has for achieving financial reengineering even during a recession.

Identify a need

No matter the economic context, societies will always have needs that require a solution. In turn, this creates business opportunities.

To adapt to changing economic contexts, it’s necessary to be able to identify new needs and create a product or service that is capable of meeting them.

In her particular case, upon entering the investment market, Gabriela noticed that there wasn’t enough Latino presence in a setting capable of creating wealth. Thus her project Latino Wall Street was born, with a mission to mainly educate Latina women to start investing in the stock market.

Pursue passive income

New technologies make it easier to create passive income sources for everyone, no matter if you’re a housewife or if you currently have a 9-to-5 office job.

Gaby teaches us that the secret to generating wealth is to be able to get income while doing other daily activities and even while sleeping.

There are many sources of passive income today. However, investment markets are an excellent opportunity and her mission is to teach more people how to take advantage of them.

Make long-term investments

Despite the fact that investment opportunities are a great way to generate capital quickly, the same is true about the needs that have emerged in the wake of the pandemic.

A great way to ensure your financial status is to make long-term investments. These will allow you to save money, protect your investments and have the financial backing to withstand financial setbacks.

Take immediate action

The difference between those who achieve financial independence and those who depend on a paid job for the rest of their lives lies in action: only those who dare to act and take risks have a chance to make a difference.
