Awaken Magazine features Carlos Marrero


Awaken Magazine features Carlos Marrero It’s the fault of “Bewitched” and “I Dream of Genie.” Because there in Puerto Rico, when Carlos Marrero got home from school, those were the shows he would watch at home with his Grandma. And Marrero wanted to draw just like that: beautiful girls with wasp-thin waists, dressed with the influence of the New Look of Christian Dior, with elaborate hairdos, billowing skirts, and chic accessories. “No era has matched the glamor of the ‘50s and ‘60s ,” Marrero says, “and I think that’s why there’s this renewed fascination in our culture as evidenced by …

On Winning the Motives Challenge….


On Winning the Motives Challenge…. Every Year, at the Motives Cosmetics International Convention in Greesboro, NC., Loren Ridinger puts together a Challenge for Beauty advisors. The purpose is to set specific and measurable goals and to recognize those who have achieved the biggest strides in growing their business. Out of 180,000 distributors, only 11 people were successful in hitting the Motives challenge, and it was an honor to be among them. As the deadline to meet the goals approached, I wasn’t sure that I was going to be able to make it. It’s easy to get tired, or overwhelmed, or …

Wantrepreneur or Entrepreneur? I started working on a new business project with my best friend Paul, and we decided to enroll in classes that would help us create a blueprint for success. In our first lesson, I came across a new term “Wantrepreneur” – individuals who have the desire to be an entrepreneur, but have not yet attained that status. Sometimes referred to as “wannabe entrepreneurs” It’s been over 20 years since I have held a “regular JOB”; at this point, I’m pretty much unemployable! I love the fact that I make my own hours – wake up when I’m …

So I have a confession to make. My name is Carlos, and I am a recovering addict. Thankfully, what I’m addicted to is actually good for you, so I’m not really making that much effort to recover! It’s a morning energy drink called Mochatonix – and yes, it does have caffeine, about as much as a cup of coffee. But it’s got a whole lot more than that – it’s a super-charged combo of herbs, amino acids, and vitamins designed to get you functioning at peak performance no matter the time of day or night. I like to joke that …

For the 12th Season’s new ad, German supermodel, Heidi Klum and fellow star Tim Gunn, decided to push the envelope.
