Welcome to Kats & Nats!

What is an empowered woman for you?

Kats: Someone that does not let fear define her, but instead develops a relationship with fear. An empowered woman doesn’t allow pain to change her and knows that her best asset is her mind. A woman who knows her value, loves herself deeply and it’s ready to take on anything that life throws at her. She is confident, authentic and determined to reach her goals without having to put anyone else down.

Una Mujer que no deja que el miedo la defina, sino que al contrario desarrolla una relación con el miedo. Una mujer empoderada no permite que el dolor la cambie y sabe que su mejor atributo es su inteligencia. Una mujer que conoce su valor y se ama profundamente, está lista para asumir cualquier cosa que la vida le arroje. Ella es segura, auténtica y está decidida a alcanzar sus metas sin tener que poner por debajo a nadie en su camino al éxito.

 

Nats: An empowered woman to me means so many things! Starting off, an empowered woman works hard to get what she wants and overcomes the obstacles in the way.  An empowered woman has an awesome support system, whether it’s her significant other, her family, or her friends. She helps others to reach equality and agrees on goals that can drive them further to be stronger and better.  She empowers her community and other communities around her to be better and achieve better in order to improve their daily lives!

¡Una mujer empoderada para mí significa tantas cosas! Ella trabaja duro para conseguir lo que quiere, sin importar los obstáculos en el camino. Una mujer empoderara tiene un excelente sistema de apoyo, ya sea su pareja, su familia o sus amigos. Ella ayuda a crear igualdad a su alrededor ¡Ella empodera a su comunidad y a otras comunidades a su alrededor con fin de mejorar sus vidas diarias!

What about your journey and how Kats & Nats came to be?

 

Kats: I’m originally from Colombia and migrated with my family to the U.S. 15 years ago. I can honestly say that moving to the states was the best thing that happened to me. It disrupted my normal and pushed my limits, it made me realize that I needed to succeed in order for all the sacrifices to be worth it. I’m a first-generation graduate, where I had to work full time and go to school full time, as I was committed to avoid loans at all costs #allabaoutthatdebtfreelife. Before I graduated, I landed a job in a Fortune 500 global corporation, where I have successfully paved a future. My top priority has always been my family and I have been lucky enough to retain lifelong friendships, the kind that are hard to find nowadays.

I realized how empowered I was when I stopped comparing myself to others, when I learned to put my happiness as a priority, and when I decided to take responsibility for my own mistakes. I am by no means, close to accomplishing all my goals, but hopefully, I can share some of the things that helped me get to where I am today. This is why Nats and I decided to create this space. We felt it would have been so helpful to have the tools we have now when we were younger. This space will serve as an outlet where we can express ourselves and have some fun in the way.

I realized how empowered I was when I stopped comparing myself to others, when I learn to put my happiness as a priority, and when I decided to take responsibility for my own mistakes.

Kats: Nací en Colombia y emigré con mi familia a los estados unidos hace 15 años. Honestamente puedo decir que mudarme a los Estados Unidos fue lo mejor que me pasó. El ser inmigrante interrumpió mi normalidad y me saco de mi zona de confort.  Me hizo darme cuenta de que necesitaba tener éxito para que todos los sacrificios valieran la pena. Soy la primera en graduarme en mi familia. Tuve que trabajar e ir a la universidad a tiempo completo ya que estaba comprometida a evitar préstamos a toda costa # allabaoutthatdebtfreelife. Antes de graduarme conseguí un trabajo en una gran empresa que forma parte de la lista “Fortune 500” donde he pavimentado con éxito un futuro. Mi prioridad principal siempre ha sido mi familia y también he tenido la suerte de crear amistades para toda la vida, del tipo de amistades que es difícil de encontrar hoy en día.

Me di cuenta de lo empoderada que soy cuando dejé de compararme con los demás, cuando aprendí a poner mi felicidad como prioridad, y cuando decidí asumir la responsabilidad de mis propios errores. Sé que aún no he terminado de lograr todos mis objetivos, pero espero poder compartir algunas de las cosas que me ayudaron a llegar a donde estoy hoy. Esta es la razón por la cual Nats y yo decidimos crear este espacio. Sentimos que muchas cosas hubieran sido más fáciles si hubiéramos contado con las herramientas que tenemos ahora cuando éramos más jóvenes.

 

Nats: I was born in New York, but moved to FL when I was four, so I’m pretty much #Floridian. My parents are originally from Colombia, so my Latin roots are very strong. Growing up, I had to take on a lot of responsibilities, as my parents where entrepreneurs and I was always involved in their business. They made sure I became business savvy at a very early age. I graduated with a B.S. in Event Management without knowing that my future would not involve planning events but instead acquiring management skills. In order to keep us relevant in the changing industry, my sister and I had to step in, and help them as much as possible with the business. Our goal has always been to bring innovative ideas in order to keep reaching success. I can say this was my first-hand experience of #girlpower.

I have learned there’s a unique way of trust and dynamic when you work with your family, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

 

I have learned there’s a unique way of trust and dynamic when you work with your family and I wouldn’t change a thing. My family will always be my rock. I’ve been happily married to someone who is my biggest supporter and who I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world with.

It took time and patience to get everything I wanted in my life. I had to learn from many mistakes, but today I feel more empowered than ever, even though there’s still a long path forward.  Kats and I have been friends for more than a decade. This project came to be because we wanted something that we could call our own. We wanted something that could motivate and inspire through our own experiences.

Nats: Nací en Nueva York, pero me mudé a FL cuando tenía cuatro años, así que me considero #Floridian. Mis padres son colombianos, y mis raíces latinas son muy fuertes. Mis papas son emprendedores y desde joven me enseñaron mucho sobre responsabilidad y disciplina. Me gradué con un diploma de gerencia de eventos, sin saber que mi futuro no implicaría planear eventos, sino adquirir habilidades de liderazgo . Para poder mantenernos relevantes en nuestra industria, mi hermana y yo decidimos re-inventar un poco el concepto de nuestro negocio y ayudar a nuestros papas trayendo ideas innovadoras para seguir alcanzando el éxito. Puedo decir que esta sería mi primera experiencia de #Mujeresempoderadas

He aprendido que hay una confianza y dinámica única cuando trabajas con tu familia, y no cambiaría esto por nada. Mi familia siempre será mi gran orgullo. Estoy felizmente casada con alguien que es mi mayor apoyo y con quien he tenido la suerte de viajar por el mundo.

Ha tomado tiempo y paciencia conseguir todo lo que tengo hoy en día y tuve que aprender de muchos errores, pero hoy me siento más empoderada que nunca, a pesar de que todavía hay un largo camino hacia adelante.  Kats y yo hemos sido amigas por más de una década, y este proyecto nació porque queríamos crear algo donde pudiéramos motivar e inspirar a través de nuestras propias experiencias.

 

We are hoping to inspire action through our experiences, and showcase how much power women have in this generation.

What can people expect from this outlet?

 

We are hoping to inspire action through our experiences, and showcase how much power women have in this generation. Throughout this blog, you can expect to see a little bit about our personalities, lifestyle, passions, and travel. Here is what we have in mind while our ideas evolve as we are new to the blogging world:

Estamos aquí con la esperanza de inspirar acción a través de nuestras experiencias, y poder mostrar todo el poder que las mujeres tenemos en esta generación. En este blog, vas a poder ver un poco sobre nuestras personalidades, estilos de vida, pasiones y viajes. Las siguientes categorías son lo que tenemos en mente mientras nuestras ideas evolucionan ya que somos nuevas en este mundo de blogs:

 

Style: We have always been passionate about fashion, not only for the aesthetics. No matter what your personal style is, confidently dressing yourself has an empowering feeling. We feel that the choices we make with our day to day outfit, sends a powerful message to the world, as it is a form of expressing our personalities and uniqueness.

Estilo: Siempre hemos sido apasionadas por la moda, no sólo por la estética sino por la manera en que nos hace sentir. No importa cuál sea tu estilo personal, sentirse segura con lo que llevas puesto crea una sensación de poder. Sentimos que las decisiones que hacemos con nuestro atuendo cotidiano, envían un mensaje poderoso al mundo, ya que es una forma de expresar nuestra personalidad y singularidad.

 

Travel: When we travel, we open our mind to different cultures and it enriches our urge to learn more. It also takes us out of our comfort zone and pushes us to grow and become better versions of ourselves.

Viajes: cuando viajamos abrimos nuestra mente a diferentes culturas e incrementamos nuestra necesidad de aprender más. Viajar también nos saca de nuestra zona de confort y nos empuja a crecer y convertirnos en mejores versiones de nosotras mismas.

 

Life: This is where we want to tell you bits and pieces of our experiences and passions, and how certain things that we have done have allowed us to be where we are today. At the same time, writing about our experiences works as a reminder of how much we’ve been through, and how far we’ve come.

Vida: Aquí es donde queremos contarles pedacitos de nuestras experiencias, pasiones y cómo ciertas cosas que hemos hecho nos han permitido estar donde estamos hoy. El escribir sobre nuestras experiencias funciona como un recordatorio de lo mucho que hemos pasado y de lo lejos que hemos llegado.

    I like this web blog so much, saved to my bookmarks. “Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.” by Peter De Vries.

    Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix in case you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
