Meet the Entrepreneur Edwin Fuentes Delgado

The international theme of conversations, news and politics is mainly about the economy. It all revolves around the status of global employment, what is being manufactured, what are the consumer's interests, price analysis, marked indicators, the world bank and federal reserves, taxes and...etcetera, etcetera...

The 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963) quoted these wise words which are being held true in our lives today: "Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder."

Economic Necessities

Greg Boudonck (Froggy213) and I have been joined together by God. It is wonderful to see our relation growth and the way we have found partnership in our economic necessities in a fun and interesting way, mixing our talents. As we have been blessed, we want to bless others with the Puerto Rican pride. For this reason, in the books of each municipal of Puerto Rico that my dear husband is writing and that I am translating, we have been selecting local businesses for them to have the opportunity to be advertised in the books.

My family is filled with skilled members and I am very proud of them. The article titled Meet the Artisan Jose Fuentes Delgado is about one of those talented members and in this article, his brother Edwin Fuentes will show how he is defeating employment issues and sustaining himself and his family economically. His restaurant is one of the selected businesses to be advertised in the book of Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico.

Simples steps to become an entrepreneur

1. Keep in mind what you know, but know what you do not know.

Do not pretend to know and be an expert in everything. Stay focused on what you know and build from there. This will give you a solid foundation to move forward.

2. Be willing to learn from others and their experiences.

Use your time to learn everything you can, to grow professionally and learn skills that can be use in the future. Take every opportunity, no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time, to learn about yourself and your profession.

3. Reflect professionalism and neatness.

The appearance in the professional field is extremely important, especially when starting a new business or getting involved in a new client relationship. Remember, your image reflects your company.

4. Help others

It is important that we help each other. Do not forget to continue to help and mentor people who are starting as an entrepreneur. It is also an opportunity to establish your expertise and learn from the younger generations about the new trends.

5. Show passion for what you do.

Your passion for what you do is the main driving force that will keep you going. Be sure to keep that passion alive. Do not lose sight of your dream and why do you love to do your work.

A covering income

You need to have an income that covers all the basic personal needs (rent or mortgage, water, electricity, food, etc..) and of the enterprise (ink cartridges, software renewal payments, self employed tax if any in New York, etc.. ) If this is not so the coaching process will be interrupted constantly because instead of running the boat, metaphorically speaking, you're bailing.

The Sabrochon Restaurant

The Sabrochon Restaurant is a unique family environment to eat healthy in a natural and clean place. It is decorated to make you feel that you are really in Puerto Rico. The Puerto Rican culture is felt by the touch that my dear cousin and entrepreneur Edwin Fuentes of Trujillo Alto in Puerto Rico has given to the restaurant.

English is our second language and many Puerto Ricans dare to speak it with their own particular accent and tasty words as in the case that you will witness in the video below. Greg (Froggy213) made an interview and put it up in Youtube for us to share the Sabrochon Restaurant.

I thank Froggy213 for his help and to my cousin the entrepreneur Edwin Fuentes for opening the doors of his restaurant. I invite you to meet the owner, watch, listen carefully and admire this great Sabrochon Restaurant.

Economy is not so bad as it seems to be...God created us all with abilities for us to defend ourselves.

Blessings to all!

I enjoyed your hub and the interview. If the restaurant was in Connecticut I would definitely check it out. Owning your own business seems to be the way to succeed in this economy. I just need to think of a good idea:). Voted up!

I just responded to your beautiful comment and there are no words to fully express my gratitude. His birthday is tomorrow. I made him a cake and the poem kept running through my head.

You have become a fast and wonderful friend. Although my best friend is in Heaven now, I'm thankful for such wonderful ones such as yourself to take over until I can hug him again.

Sending so many blessings to you and your loved ones.

Keep looking to the stars! XO

By :RE: RE: Duh, the stimulus woerkd. You guys are a few tools short of a full shed. Look at it this way- let's say I make $75,000 a year (year 1) as a janitor at city hall and I spend every penny of it. Then the budget crunch (recession) comes along and my hours get cut to 35 hour a week ($65,000/yr) from 40. It's my own personal recession! But lucky for me stupid banker china-guy comes along and lends me $25,000 dollars! So in year 2 my spendable income as a practical matter is $90,000!!! And what do I do? I spend it! Like Obama, I give all my friends treats like dinner out (bail-outs), free golf, and we all stay in the cabin I rent at the lake for two weeks. Spending is up! GDP is up! Many jobs at the restaurants and golf course have been added or saved because of my good stimulus fortune and stupid banker's lack of math skills. Yup, this stimulus is a success!Now what happens in year 3? China-guy won't lend me another $25 large because I really only make $65,000 a year as a janitor in city hall. Since I won't be going back to the golf course, cabin, or fancy restaurants those jobs that were added or saved are now gone again, perhaps for good. Because you see, now I have to make at least the interest payments on the $25,000 I borrowed, so my real spendable income has actually gone down. What???!! Yup, interest doesn't get me anything in terms of lifestyle, but it does make chinese-guy happy- until I stop paying. . . But that's another story. Is the light starting to go on for any of you stimulus nuts, or is this a lost cause?you really don't know how stimulus works. the stimulus woerkd. deal with it. the CBO study shows it. so does the moody's study put out by former mccain economic advisor mark zandi. Now what happens in year 3? China-guy won't lend me another $25 large because I really only make $65,000 a year as a janitor in city hall. beacause you spent the earlier money you don't need to borrow another 25k because you jump-started the economy. but your analogy doesn't really work because a person doesn't get the benefit of higher revenues like a government does.stimulus=higher revenue=lower debt.
