We recently connected with Myle Acevedo and have shared our conversation below.
Myle, thanks for taking the time to share your stories with us today How did you come up with the idea for your business?
My business idea was born during the time of confinement due to the pandemic, during that confinement I was pregnant and decided to do a specialization in digital marketing. Seeing that so many people were trying to migrate their businesses to digital platforms, undertaking and looking for a way to generate money through online sales. It occurred to me to share my knowledge, and I started to generate general educational content that would help these people. Due to the reception that this had, I began to design a business strategy that would allow me to personally help each person who required it, according to their interests and type of business, to develop unique strategies that would allow them to achieve their digital objectives.
Myle, before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
Myle Acevedo, as my Personal Brand appears, is a Colombian systems engineer specialized in creating digital strategies for existing businesses or people who need to shape a business idea. She is the creator of a digital Studio called CUBIK where she provides mentoring programs, strategic consulting, she directs workshops to develop a business mindset, teaches how to create content for RRSS and helps people learn to sell through RRSS. and she creates content for brands.
Are there any books, videos or other content that you feel have meaningfully impacted your thinking?
First, I have always liked to read a lot about Personal Growth, I feel that this has helped me a lot to grow as a person, develop my potential and believe in myself. and second, read and see about other people’s biographies and how they managed to be successful in the field they develop. If other people have been able to achieve it, it means that it is also available to me. That inspires me.
Learning and unlearning are both critical parts of growth – can you share a story of a time when you had to unlearn a lesson?
When I migrated from Colombia to the US, it was a difficult process because you have to start from scratch, nobody knows you, the lifestyle is different. That completely changes the way you see life, you have to adapt to a new culture, a new way of life. and forget what you were, in a certain way leaving behind your career and your work experience, to work in a job that perhaps you never did before that allows you to pay your bills. But then time passes and you feel grateful for all the way you have come and seeing everything you have been able to achieve is very satisfying.
