Tienes algun problema con propiedades en Mexico? Sergio Green de Pai del noroeste y su equipo pueden ayudarte con todo lo relacionado con asesoria inmobiliaria, testamentos, regularizaciones de propiedades, avaluos, servicios notariales para Mexico, estatus de propiedades en Mexico, contratos de compra-venta, comercializacion inmobiliaria, prestamos para compra de propiedades en Mexico, nacionalizacion mexicana y mas.Les compartimos la entrevista que tuvimos con Sergio Green, Presidente de PAI del Noroeste.
Los pequeños empresarios siempre están pensando en ideas que les ayuden a incrementar sus ventas. Por lo general, una de las primeras ideas que les vienen a la mente es disminuir el precio. Yo debato mucho esa estrategia porque no creo que es lo mas apropiado en el largo plazo.
Cuando nosotros comenzamos la Cámara Hispana de Comercio Electrónico ni siquiera cobrábamos por membresía. Teníamos el directorio abierto y lo único que nos importaba era que se registraran los negocios en el directorio.
Eso nos puso en una situación muy difícil. Si logramos la tracción que buscábamos pero a un muy alto costo. Creo que pudimos haber hecho dos a tres cosas diferentes. Pero bueno, de todo se aprende.
En cuanto comenzamos a cambiar el modelo de negocio de la organización, comenzamos a pensar en oportunidades que ayudaran a generar mas flujo de efectivo y mayor penetración en el mercado. También esa parte del proceso fue a prueba y error.
Así fue como llegamos a 2014 cuando decidimos cambiar la estructura legal de la organización y hacer otros cambios de fondo que nos permitieran posicionar a HISCEC en el nivel que nosotros siempre habíamos imaginado.
Fue hasta 2015 cuando por fin pudimos comenzar a implementar los cambios trabajados en 2014. Los resultados se comenzaron a ver inmediatamente. Eso no solo permitió que incrementáramos nuestro flujo de efectivo sino que también nos permitió servir mejor a nuestros miembros y clientes finales de nuestros servicios.
Así que mi recomendación para los dueños de negocios es que siempre estén trabajando en agregar valor a sus productos y/o servicios. Cuando se trabaja en agregar valor, no importa quien entra al mercado siempre y cuando el producto/ servicio que ofrece tu negocio tiene un diferenciador que el mercado esta dispuesto a pagar a cualquier precio. Esa es la idea clave!
Por eso hablamos bastante de la innovación. Siempre hay que estar innovando para responder a las necesidades cambiantes del mercado, claro que a mejor calidad de producto/servicio también el precio tendrá que aumentar.
En conclusión, no pierdan el tiempo tratando de competir en precio con una empresa que tiene mas recursos. Mejor vean cuales son sus puntos débiles y compitan en contra de esas empresas en base a valor. Ofrezcan mas valor que la competencia y siempre tendrán un negocio en expansión.
Muchas gracias por su valioso tiempo. Estoy a sus ordenes para lo que les pueda ayudar.

Meet Veronica Alcantara, President of SHPE SanDiego http://www.shpesd.org. Tayde Aburto, President & CEO of HISCEC, and Veronica talked about STEM, Scholarships for students interested in becoming engineers and the importance of the empowerment of our community through education.
I met Veronica about three years ago at a national event that SHPE organized at UCSD in San Diego. Since then, we connected immediately.
Veronica and I shared a lot of interests in common. We are both highly educated professionals with a keen interest in supporting our community in any way we can.
It was a short but productive conversation. I invite you to watch it. If you know anyone interested in pursuing a career in engineering, please contact those students with Veronica Alcantara.
How can we fight poverty and increase wealth in the Latino community?
According to Pew Hispanic, there were 55.3 million Hispanics in the United States in 2014, and about 23% of them live in Poverty/Government Assistance/Health Care.
As the Latino Community continues to grow, I believe that we have the moral responsibility to take a leadership role in the communities that we live. We have to start investing more in our personal development to become an asset to society and not a burden.
The State of Latino Entrepreneurship 2015 report revealed that between 2007 and 2012, the number of LOBs grew by 46.9 percent compared to just 0.7 percent for non-Latino owned businesses, an extraordinary level of entrepreneurship that suggests Latinos play a substantial role in local job creation and economic development. It's top priority to make sure that those businesses are not underperforming in the marketplace.
When small businesses underperform, they have an adverse impact on the growth and development of the local economy.
In summary, we can become wealthier personally and professionally if we invest in our personal growth. The more educated we are, the better chances we have to provide bigger and better opportunities to our loved ones.
Get out of your comfort zone. Time to represent at the highest levels.
Cheers to your success!

I had the opportunity to attend the 2017 USHCC Legislative Summit in D.C. last week. Thanks to the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce staff, my trip to D.C. was very productive.
It took me more than 36 hrs to get to D.C. because of a snow storm that was passing by, but I made it on time after all.
As soon as I landed in D.C., I took a cab to the Mayflower Hotel. The USHCC always chooses the best venues for its events, something I've trying to do at the local level with HISCEC too. It all helps to build a strong brand.
I missed the first events but got on time to attend the "Hispanic Business Luncheon." An event where top Republican Congressional Leaders discussed their efforts to create jobs, support small businesses, and spur innovations that will sustain our 21st-century economy.
While I was at lunch, I tweeted a comment made by Senator Ted Cruz and tweet got an excellent traction in a short period. Not bad for my profile considering I don't Tweet as often as I should.
After lunch, I attended the "Workshop: Capital Solutions Discussing Corporate and Federal policies that benefit Hispanic and minority small businesses / Senate."
"Small businesses, particularly those who are Hispanic-owned, play a paramount role in job growth and the overall health of the U.S. economy. These companies often struggle to find the right capital partners to help them grow and create more jobs. USHCC is playing an important role to help Hispanic businesses scale, through strong cooperation with Capital providers and enablers, Corporate America (by understanding their needs and strategic direction), and talented business owners who can achieve scale and accelerated growth." (Source: USHCC Legislative Summit website.)
At the Table Speaker Series: Latinas Will Run we heard the inspiring story of Congresswoman Nanette Diaz Barragán. Nanette Diaz Barragán is an American attorney and politician from the state of California who is a member of the United States House of Representatives for California's 44th district. She is a member of the Democratic Party.
At breakfast on the Hill, Democratic Congressional Leadership highlighted their efforts to advance legislation that enables business growth, innovation, and job creation while also paving the way for a brighter, shared American future.
Having meetings at the U.S. Congress all day was a great experience. I didn't want the day to end. I was learning a lot from the conversations we were having with top political leaders on the Hill.
We finished the 2017 USHCC Legislative Summit attending the gala. The USHCC Legislative Summit Gala marked the finale of a three-day engagement between national government and business leaders – all culminating with keynote remarks by the Secretary of Energy, Rick Perry; and Mexico's Ambassador to U.S., Gerónimo Gutiérrez.
It was my first USHCC Legislative Summit ever, and it was a fulfilling experience.
I'm thankful for the opportunities that I have thanks to my leading role behind the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce.
The Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce and Latinos Emprendedores USA have partnered up to bring Latino iConnect to Atlanta on May 13, 2017. Save the date and get your ticket now! More details about event coming soon. Look forward to connecting with dozens of business owners and professionals in Atlanta, GA.
Recently, I stumbled upon the following article on the web "Immigrants Play a Disproportionate Role in American Entrepreneurship" and made me think about my immigrant entrepreneur story. Before I jump into my entrepreneurship journey in the U.S., let me share some data from the article I read:
"1. Immigrants constitute 15% of the general U.S. workforce, but they account for around a quarter of U.S. entrepreneurs (which we define as the top three initial earners in a new business). That is comparable to what we see in innovation and patent filings, where immigrants also account for about a quarter of U.S. inventors.
2. Immigrant founders launch firms that are smaller than native-founded firms. The average initial employment for firms founded by immigrants exclusively is 4.4 workers, compared to 7.0 workers for firms launched exclusively by natives. When both types of founders are present (i.e., “mixed founder team”), the average is 16.9 workers. (Source: https://hbr.org/2016/10/immigrants-play-a-disproportionate-role-in-american-entrepreneurship.)"
According to the "State of Latino Entrepreneurship 2016" report, scaled firms in the Hispanic business community are more likely to have immigrant and highly educated owners.
"Owners of scaled firms are more likely to report being immigrants and having at least a four-year college degree. Specifically, 40-50 percent of larger firms – high-revenue and high-employee firms – are immigrant-owned, compared to only one-third of smaller firms. Two-thirds of owners of firms scaled in size report having a college degree, compared to only half of owners of smaller firms. When comparing firms with and without increasing employee count levels, the differences are less pronounced but still evident. While the reasons behind the overrepresentation of immigrants, in particular, are unclear, a clear implication is that Latino immigrant entrepreneurs are having a positive effect on the U.S. economy through job and revenue creation. (Source: https://www.gsb.stanford.edu/sites/gsb/files/publication-pdf/report-slei-state-latino-entrepreneurship-2016_0.pdf)".
The moment I knew I was going to stay in San Diego for good, I started to explore different business opportunities. For those who don't know, I was born and raised in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico. I have a Bachelor's in Economics and a Master's in Marketing. The reason why I mention that is because my education has helped me to compete at a high level in San Diego since day one.
Back in 2006, I thought about opening a restaurant, starting an import/export business or a marketing consulting firm for companies interested in penetrating the Mexican market. Those were some of the multiple ideas I had.
However, we all know how destiny sometimes works in very mysterious ways. I was waiting for my restaurant to sell so I could use that money to invest in my first business opportunity in San Diego. While I was waiting for that to happen, I started to look for a full-time job, and that's how I ended up with a market research analyst position at Kyocera Wireless. That was the time when I joined the San Diego County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SDCHCC).
My experience was so negative with the SDCHCC that some force inside me drove me to take action to do something better. It was 2008 when I launched the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce (HISCEC).
All my business ideas changed after my market research study showed me that Hispanic-owned businesses were underperforming in the marketplace and that there wasn't a serious organization in town to help out with that, so I ended up concentrating all of my efforts towards HISCEC from 2008 to 2010. I didn't have a clue back then about how I was going to make a living out of that, but deeply in my heart, I knew I had to do that. It was the right thing to do.
I made several mistakes in the process. The first major mistake was choosing the legal structure of the organization and then the business model. I had to learn with time what was the best for me, for HISCEC and the stakeholders.
In 2010, we hosted a Hispanic Business Expo at the San Diego Convention Center. An event that cost us over $50K when the organization wasn't making any money but we needed to set a record straight, that we were in business for good.
Maybe because I was an immigrant, with little English proficiency and zero knowledge of the community politics, I was never afraid of making moves. I challenged the status quo since day one. It was tough in the beginning to get members, sponsors, etc. because no one knew anything about me or the organization. But hard work, dedication, and results have positioned HISCEC as the largest Hispanic business association in San Diego County.
I managed to overcome all the challenges to get to the stage where we currently are with HISCEC.
It's not easy for immigrant entrepreneurs to succeed in the marketplace but we live in the best country for entrepreneurs with big dreams. The sky is the limit in America. Numbers don't lie!
My story is not over yet. I feel like is just starting. Best is yet to come! We are now working to get 4,000 members by November 2018. Follow our journey using hashtag #4000by2018.
If you are an immigrant entrepreneur, let's connect. There are always opportunities to learn from the experiences of others. And if my network of contacts helps you in any way, please don't hesitate to ask for some connections.
Cheers to your success,
Many who follow my work and what I do at the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce know that I'm 100% committed to the economic empowerment of the family business sector in the Hispanic community, mainly in those areas where we have active members. Top priority for me right now is San Diego County where there are more than 43,000 Hispanic-owned businesses and where we are currently working to have 4,000 members by November 2018.
Why is it so important to work on the economic empowerment of the Hispanic business community? Because if the majority of them do not perform at the market average, in whatever industry they are in, there is a negative impact on the local economy. Opposite to that, an increase in their wealth would impact more than just the Latino community.
According to the State of Latino Entrepreneurship 2016 report, most Latino firms earn less than $100,000 in annual revenue and do not have any employees. I confirm that every day as I have the opportunity to engage with Hispanic-owned businesses all over San Diego County.
Now, when you spend quality time talking to Hispanic business owners in the community, they express their interest to increase sales and reduced costs of operation but quite often, they don't know how. We firmly believe that by using the Internet as a business tool, Hispanic family-owned businesses can become more competitive in the marketplace.
There is a lot of talk about the lack of access to capital but few conversations about increasing competitiveness in the family business sector. Teach how to do more with what they already have.
For over eight years I've been talking about the use of the Internet in the Hispanic business community as a business tool and the economic empowerment of the family business sector. On top of that, I've been an active promoter of the valuable contributions that Hispanic-owned businesses provide to the San Diego County economy. Unfortunately, all that is not "sexy" enough to get massive attention. So, at the end of 2016, while I was planning activities for 2017 it occurred to me that a program with the word "Party" in it could help to deliver the message and get more business owners involved in the movement that we represent.
Please don't call the "Block Party" program false advertising LOL! I have to do whatever it takes to get family-owned businesses excited about the possibility of taking their businesses to the next level. I also came out with the idea of a "Block Party" to showcase the locations of the members of the HISCEC. Make all of the members more aware of where our members are and to learn more about what they do.
The "Block Party" program will also help to showcase to the general market the talented Hispanic entrepreneurs who are actively contributing to the growth and development of San Diego County's economy.
I want to invite you to follow our journey. It may not be as fun as following any of your favorite artists, shows, etc. on social media but maybe the stories of the entrepreneurs who are actively involved with the HISCEC can inspire you in one way or another.
Join us on April 20th at the Santa Fe Depot in San Diego for a LARGE Block Party event hosted by Five Star Tours. We will have exhibit tables, food, drinks, music, raffle prizes and...Yes, we will have special speakers who will try to motivate you to use the right business tools to help your business to become more competitive in the marketplace.
By having a stronger and smarter family business sector, we can make families, communities and entire regions more prosperous. Let's make that happen for San Diego County!
See you soon,
