It takes courage to have big dreams and chase those dreams. Often people give up but some who don’t are the real hustlers. One such person is Erika Aguilar who did it all for her dreams.
Erika’s early life
Erika hails from Wasco CA. As soon as she completed her high school, she went to Bakersfield community college but instead of completing her education, she dropped out a year and a half later. Besides, that started working at an egg packaging plant, packing eggs, it was heavy labour physically and mentally and even emotionally for her. “I never really had a weekend off, I truly disliked packing eggs, but I never quit because I always had my parents in mind. I’m blessed to have them as my parents, they taught me to work hard and show up despite the way I feel, so with that example, I couldn’t quit”, Erika remarked.
The tale behind Erika becoming and Entrepreneur
At the age of 25, Erika was influenced by YouTube to work as an entrepreneur. “I found a world of beauty, makeup, fashion and lifestyle and I belonged there. I was amazed by girls just like me growing in that world and travelling enjoying what they did for a living and I wanted that too.” Erika stated. Soon she found an opportunity in the insurance industry to build her platform, have a voice and be someone. Since then she is a chairman council and co-owner of the PHP agency. “I run a multimillion-dollar business alongside my husband. I’m beyond blessed with the life I’ve been able to create with my husband working together building a family business, taking care of our parents travelling the world to places I only dreamed about while working at the egg packaging plant. The best is yet to come and I’m excited about the future”, said Erikaabout:blank
