A Facebook post caught my attention this morning. Someone I once worked with many moons ago lost his father. “RIP Dad, thank you for making our lives unforgettable,” he wrote. And then it sunk in. This person’s dad was also my first boss in US Hispanic marketing over thirty years ago. This person’s dad was one of the early pioneers of US Latino marketing in this country and, among many colorful and memorable individuals, I will venture to say he was at the top of the list. This person’s dad was Pedro Font or Mr. Font to those who worked for him.

Latinos make up the fastest growing share of entrepreneurs in this country, creating new businesses at multiples the rate of other groups, and contributing more than $700 billion in sales to the economy each year.  But, of the approximately 4.65 million Latino-owned businesses (LOBs) in the United States, only three percent of those have scaled; that is, reached $1 million or more in revenue annually.

The Aspen Institute reports that if Hispanic business owners were provided the resources to scale at the same rate as white-owned businesses, “an estimated $1.47 trillion dollars could be added to the economy.” What additional challenges are these owners facing during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how can we all help? Hello Alice decided to take a look at those questions in a new report titled "The Impact of COVID-19 on Hispanic & Latinx Business Owners."

That great cartoon-strip philosopher Charlie Brown once said: "I have been repeating the same mistakes in life for so long now I may as well call them traditions." Had Charlie Brown ever grown up he may very well have enjoyed a successful career in advertising.  By Brian Jacobs - The COG Blog

My mother always told me, ‘ponte las pilas’, as a way to encourage me to chase my dreams. She never doubted me because she knew that everything I needed in order to succeed was available to me; that it was a matter of whether or not I was willing to put in the work. Chasing my dreams was never easy, especially when I felt unwanted.  by Jaquelin Bautista

A majority of executive women across a range of industries identified having experienced feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, or imposter syndrome, at certain points in their careers and say they believe it is commonly experienced by women in corporate America, according to a new study released by KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax, and advisory firm.
