SAUL A. VILLANUEVA
I was born in Leon, Mexico. My Mother, a woman dear to my heart, brought my brothers and I to the United States at an early age. Her sacrifices and drive were my inspiration to begin a company that affords people, businesses, and society tools to grow. However, growth is not a simple thing.
As a child, I had responsibilities over my household while my mother worked. She taught us that regardless of the situation, we had responsibilities to maintain our well-being, and to look after each other.
My mother taught us that there was time to work, but their was also time to enjoy, and be grateful for the time we spent as a family. She also taught us that if we were going to make breakthroughs, we needed to learn to overlook challenges, make gains, and continuously improve not only ourselves, but those around us.
That extraordinary woman empowered me to believe in myself as I took on the corporate world. I moved up the ranks while attending night school, eventually moving to my MBA. During that journey, I realized that breakthroughs happened outside the comfort zone. So I took a leap of faith, as my mother before me. I co-founded Br8kthroo to empower people, and businesses that work towards bettering themselves, and those around them.
