Currently, Veronica runs a digital agency, Team Remoto, created a successful online course called “Bootcamp Transforma Tu Instagram en 21 Días”, and is the co-founder of an e-learning platform called Dar Learning. All of her businesses are based on a “Team Work” philosophy as Veronica values the joy she finds in creating create safe working environments, where people feel free to be themselves and be pleased to wake up every morning excited to go to work – or in today’s day and age, connect over video call with their teammates.

Veronica’s tenacity and spirit was instilled into her at an early age. After experiencing her mother’s passing, an urgency was brought into her life to generate her own income. She started her first business, a magazine called “REVISTA OJO”.
Her personal and professional experiences illustrate that Veronica is not afraid of changes. She understands she needs to create her own destiny by working hard, being transparent, taking risks, being straight forward, trusting the process and most importantly believing in herself and her true potential.
For someone as headstrong and motivated and Veronica, it’s surprising to hear that even she faces challenges in her business. In fact, Veronica knows this is an inherent part of running a business, and the challenges will never stop as long as you’re chasing the dream. One of the biggest challenges she faces, specifically when starting a business, is aligning the business strategy with all the team members.
To combat this misalignment, Veronica encourages a simple exercise: have your team answer strategic questions together and simultaneously, placing all the answers in a visible way, and without judging them, analyze the results. This allows teams to check in on how aligned their team is, share information that may not be already throughout the team, clear doubts, and define the indicators of success for everyone involved.
Veronica applies this mindset in every aspect of her life, and because of it, is able to overcome any obstacle to turn them into achievements. Her largest to date, she believes, is being a Latina businesswoman in the United States.
