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."
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!
