As one of the most successful Latina businesswomen in the United States, Nina Vaca says that courage is fundamental to success. Having courage in certain situations makes the difference between moving forward and getting stuck in a rut.

Vaca says that even the most powerful and confident people still get “a case of nerves” in those situations when they know they must perform well to avoid disaster. It’s normal to be nervous. But it’s how you face and handle those nerves that determine the outcome at the end of the day.

Vaca knows what she’s talking about based on her life experiences. She is a classic American success story, the daughter of Ecuadorian immigrants who started from humble beginnings and went on to create one of the leading professional staffing agencies in the world.

Her company, Pinnacle Group, is a multinational corporation which industry observers often single out as a case study for how to build “the perfect business.” Headquartered in Dallas, Pinnacle Group has an international presence, including service centers in Jordan, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The company recently announced that it will be expanding to Ireland, Mexico, Chile, and Argentina.

All this from a company that Vaca started with just $300 when she was 25. She says that having courage and gaining inspiration from role models has been a key to her success.

For many in the world, the United States is a land where anything is possible, where if you work hard enough anything you want is yours. This image of America was no different for Doe Deere, at the time a teenager in Russia. Her daydreams of living in America would finally be realized at the age of 17 when she and her family moved to New York City. The land of opportunity was waiting for her and she was ready for it, unfortunately, that was not to be her experience in the first few years of her life across the Atlantic. Immediately her family began struggling when her mother’s educational credentials were non-existent in the U.S and had to resort to low paying jobs. Eventually, the family hit rock bottom and lived out of a homeless shelter on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. All Doe had was her family and her dreams of becoming a fashion designer.

It was not until the spring of 1999 when she and her family caught a break in the form of a woman name Dorchen Leidholdt, a social worker bent on aiding struggling immigrant families. Leidholdt would find Doe’s mother an accounting job, her sister a college education and Doe herself would be guided by Ledihoidt to the Fashion Institute of Technology after seeing her sketches. Her family was once again back on their feet, and even though she states that she never wishes that type of struggle on anyone, she would not exchange it for anything as it taught her so many valuable lessons.

In 2008, Doe Deere would finally realize her dream and founded “Lime Crime”. The company became a huge success with high sales and a team of 35 employees ready to inspire women from all over the world to be themselves.

He has regulars, and he charms people who come into Escondido just for his food.
