From Entreprenista to Corporate and Back Again: Insights from Sandra Campos of Latina Disruptors
Coming from an Entreprenista family, Sandra knew she had the spirit to run her own company. But her path of entrepreneurship has been a winding road back and forth from corporate America. She views it as a way to always be adding to her skill set, and she has certainly acquired many skills.
Today, we sit down with Sandra Campos, founder of Latina Disruptors, an event that focuses on supporting Latina founders through education, networking, and events. She shares about her first business venture, working with Selena Gomez, how she makes it through the hard times, and so much more.
“So I kind of flip flopped from corporate, you know, I guess maybe starting as an entrepreneur at a very young age, flipping into corporate, flipping back into an entrepreneur, and flipping back into corporate and now back into an entrepreneur. So, you know, it’s definitely been a pivot. But for me, it’s always been about continuing to add my skills.” – Sandra Campos
