Many people at some point in their lives have wished to be the owner of their own company, to become independent and not have a desk job working for the dreams of others. At a minimum, people want their effort to be valued and taken into account.
Valentina Santiago is a 23-year-old Venezuelan who runs an online business called Ocean Trending that offers a variety of products. She migrated to the United States in 2017 and has found her greatest motivation in her quest for independence.
Since she was young, Valentina has focused on bettering herself and devoting quality time to those around her. This is also what drove her to launch her online business store Ocean Trending.
Valentina manages an online business called Ocean Trending, which offers a wide variety of products for both men and women, from beauty to technological accessories.
Ocean Trending started in November 2020 when Valentina realized she was working endless hours and had no energy or time for herself.
The biggest challenge for Valentina so far when it comes to entrepreneurship is dealing with investment or lack thereof. Not just financial investment, but also the dedication and time it takes to launch a business.
When it comes to fear, Valentina sees it as a feeling that can both lead you to miss a great opportunity and lead you to make the best decision of your life. This is because fear itself does not determine the consequence.
Valentina’s future projects include growing Ocean Trendingto be able to provide international shipping of their products. She would also like to have a physical store.
