Welcome to Almost Famous Folks!

I'm Alejandra, and I'm excited to have you join me on this adventure. Here, I'll be sharing stories from my life, talking about the ups and downs of starting my own business, and sharing some of my favorite tips and resources for living authentically.

Why this name for my newsletter?

Well, it's a little nod to my current situation with a dash of humor and irony. I was very hesitant to jump into this because I thought, "Who's going to read my stuff? I'm not exactly a household name, I don't have a strong online presence, what about my business?" Well, we're talking baby steps here. At the end of the day, I'm just another person trying to make it in life, learning as I go and trying to live a life that makes sense to me. I'm just trying to evolve step by step in a realistic way. I'm an Almost Famous Folk, like many of us, trying to make the best of life, pursuing our dreams, learning and growing. Also, I am very discreet and usually keep to myself, so I was a little paralyzed by the idea of putting myself out there, but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and go for it.

I believe that everyone has a story to tell, and I hope that my journey can inspire others who are just starting out. We all have to start somewhere, right?.

Who am I? And What can you expect from this Newsletter?

I am an entrepreneur, and with my husband we are bootstrapping our business. We are currently working on Laracadabra.

I was a makeup artist and switched careers to web development. After finishing my education, I decided to start a business with my husband. This is what I have always aspired to do.

My life, well, that's a long story, I say I've lived more lives than a cat (haha). Through my posts I will be sharing my life's journey and lessons learned.

I will relate valuable lessons to real life experiences, offer resources and tips for readers to reflect on and apply to their own journeys.

I hope that by sharing my experiences you will feel less alone on your journey. Whether you have self-doubts, question your abilities, or are looking to connect with like-minded people, this blog intends to provide you with a sense of closeness and support.

So I invite you to join me in this journey of growth, resilience and self-improvement. Where we embrace our excellence, overcome obstacles and build the lives we envision. For everyone out there, I hope you're making the most of yourself and building something that makes sense to you.

When does the newsletter come out?

It will come out twice a month on Tuesdays.
