What I Learned From Prudential at Hispanicize Texas #Prupárate

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

As young parents one of our biggest concerns right now is making sure Mila has a strong, and secure financial future. I watched my parents work multiple jobs to make sure we were never without anything, but in doing that they had to spend a lot of time away from home, but knowing what Prudential has taught me over the last year I know now that it doesn't have to be that way, if you have the right financial knowledge then you can find a way to make your money work for you instead of you working for your money.

My journey with Prudential as a woman and a mother started more than a year ago, when I was invited to an event that changed the way I thought about our money. I realized that I wasn't doing enough because my family had never really talked about managing money openly, or taught me what they knew. It made me want to teach my parents what I learned and what we should be doing with our money, and I realized that it had a lot to do with because we were Hispanic.

Which is why it always makes me feel good to see Prudential at major events like Hispanicize and Hispanicize Texas because it creates a dialogue that's not their in our community, let alone our households. Hispanicize Texas alone was a ground breaking event in Texas for the Hispanic community here especially because us Tejanos showed up in numbers. It makes it harder for big brands to ignore us, especially because of the buying power that the Hispanic market has!

Our culture definitely on display and well represented through the lunch Prudential hosted, as well as the performances, the speakers that touched on topics that we need to be talking about and the vendors in the Mercadito! 

Check out Jeff's Vlog of Hispanicize Texas: 

"We love to travel, go explore, and find new adventures. None of this would be possible if we didn't manage our finances  for a better future. Otherwise we wouldn't be able to do some of the things that we do. It comes down to being financially smart and preparing for ourfuture. Needless to say, money is a huge factor when it comes to our lifestyles, and we want to show, teach, and educate ourselves, and others the importance of finances for our family and for our future. I learned a lot at Hispanicize Texas as one of their brand ambasadors. One thing I hadn't thought about was life insurance! Most people my age don't think about that becasue we are young, strong, and healty,  but we never know when disaster strikes. We also aren't aware how affordable life insurance is. We must be ready and prepared, not only for unfortunate events but to leave a legacy behind for our generations. I'm glad Prudential Financial is there to help empower and educate our Latino communities."
