This column, and related features, were originally created by David Liss for publication on the AOL Latino website.
In every column, different Hispanic immigrants, entrepreneurs, business and community leaders are interviewed. Immigrants will explain in their own words their path to solving a specific problem or achieving a specific goal. Each person will give advice, based on their own experience, on mistakes to avoid, and tips to enable others to repeat their success.
The goal is to provide readers with models of achievable and repeatable personal and business success stories. Readers are given the tools to build their own success stories based on the success of other people. People who had been in their shoes just a few years before.
Each column highlights another page in the book of Hispanic immigrant success stories: getting a college education, having a healthy baby, buying a house, showcasing the success of businesses that readers can aspire to build or lead. The focus will always be to enable new immigrants to repeat the success of another immigrant's experience.
¡Usted Si Puede! Version 2.0:
In the future, requests for people and subjects to be featured will be posted on websites publishing the content, and through partner organizations who may also distribute the content. The goal is to develop an interactive relationship between readers, potential readers and the content, to help and to grow a continually increasing community of readers.
