Raquel Gonzalez joins Creative Juice Online

Just in! Creative Juice Online is excited to announce we have added Raquel Gonzalez to our digital creative team. Raquel will work with our digital branding, social media areas and bring a sharp millennial perspective to our team. Raquel has worked with our team on other projects including Monster Products and Visit Dallas online content.

A multimedia producer, writer, photographer and marketer born and raised in Chicago, IL. However, her career in the media industry started while she was attending college at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism, she took her education and experience to a top five U.S. media market in Dallas, TX. There she became a news and segment producer where she created and packaged stories for the station, showcased the community and businesses around the area, and was always marketing and growing reputations and images as she had to reach the masses. She branded her raw compassion for covering the good, the bad, and the ugly, but always with an open mind to make the story better. Now that she lives in Miami, FL, her mission is to continue telling your story and bringing your brand to life.

After years in the industry, she became frustrated with news stations and media companies telling her what stories to cover and how to report them. She was never allowed to fully express herself or really tell it like it is. There were times she felt like she had a captivating story to tell or photo to share only to be shot down moments later. Other times, she knew of a rising business with a great product or service, only to be told they won’t make it and close. They ended up expanding and blowing up and of course the station lost the coverage and the story. Rock Media House, LLC wants to share the stories the big guys don’t care about. Whether that’s through social media, photography, writing or being the face or the voice, Raquel is here to tell YOUR story. We at Creative Juice Online are very proud to have Raquel Gonzalez on our digital team. She “get’s it”.

ONLINE, 2 MARKETS + BUSINESS MOVEMENT-LET’S GROW!

In 2018 I decided to relocate to Southern Florida, many reading this will be asking me the same question so many have after I have informed them, what? when?  I love when I am asked which basically affirms my online office presence for over 15 years. I created my line of digital presence back in mid to late 1990’s with Creative Juice Online, a digital strategy, media business.  I have been fortunate to not just work remote, from home, beach, cafe, airports, swimming pool, a park in Cuba in 95F humid heat, but introduced so many on maximizing meeting time via Facetime, Skype and other methods to maintain relevance.

 

Having moved out here to the Aventura/Hallandale Beach, Florida area has been wonderful for my work mode, creative and overall progression with businesses. Aside from being Founder/Digital Strategist for Creative Juice Online, I am also now Vice-President|Partner with BellaGeneration Hair System, a vegan, all natural, cruelty free, 4 level hair system for all hair textures geared towards women worldwide. Far be it from me to be the specialist in hair but I love challenges and when invited to be equity partner by Miriam Marsh Sifuentes, a 3 time cancer survivor and having created this original formula for her own health reasons and how she wants to change the way all women, men and children view their wellness before beauty and to add, 10% of sales were going to homeless and foster children I was on board. You see, when the intent is pure and on the highest of plains nothing but greatness can follow. We have toured the nation promoting and educating women about wellness before beauty and how damaging so many current product is on the market and to consider a vegan alternative for their hair and well, their health.

I miss many things about my life in Dallas, from family, all of my friends, my favorite restaurants and those I know, you can just imagine the list but I have been able to travel back and forth maintaining business and personal relationships at least once a month. When I am in Dallas I get asked if I have moved to Miami (as if that is the only city in Florida lol), I reply, I did and I work and do business here in Dallas as well, that same look: Oh ok. I love warm weather, everyone that truly knows me knows I travel to Miami at least 3-5 times a year every year while I was living in Dallas. For conventions, culture, beach, diversity, music, food, the world in one market, I do love it here.

When I first arrived here and settled in I could not wait to get into the city and meet others doing progressive business, not just doing business. Through this movement I met a powerful young rising star, at only 29 years of age she has already been featured in FORBES, Vogue Magazine (3 times), Pop Sugar, Makeup.com, Huda and the list is endless. Having developed the world’s first, patent pending, vegan adhesive remover and cleanser. She is CEO/Founder of Be RAD Cosmetics, Andrea Farah. When we connected we hit it off fast and furious. We set up our first meet up and then we allowed time to pass to see what we can do to form a strategic partnership and after several months which my CEO/Partner Miriam Marsh Sifuentes was fully engaged in by flying to Miami, we closed the deal. Our parent company is M Power Holdings, owned by CEO/Miriam Marsh Sifuentes and now both BellaGeneration Hair System and Be RAD Cosmetics are part of portfolio of strategic partnerships. We are super excited to see the grow from last year to the present for Andrea Farah’s Be RAD Cosmetics.

Today in 2019 we are in the process of securing Series A Investors and plans are huge for M Power Holdings as we are carefully seeking to form more strategic partnerships with businesses already on the move and owned by more powerhouse entrepreneurs that have that perfect blend of business savvy, 7 day a week work mode and will stop at nothing to reach their goals along with a well balanced personality, the super winning combination.  We are in talks with some for private label opportunities both business types and celebrities.

Rikki sat down with BITB and shared how the environment and excessive hair washing contribute to hair loss and how BellaGeneration is changing the way women prioritize their wellness.

1. What motivated you to create the BellaGeneration Hair System?

BellaGeneration Hair System, an original formula created by my CEO, Partner, Miriam Marsh Sifuentes, was born out of a deep-rooted desire to help women with their struggle when it comes to hair loss. When I was approached by Miriam to join her team as Vice-President, overseeing digital, marketing, media and entertainment and then offered partnership, I could not resist. Helping pave the way and change how women prioritize their wellness equally as they do their appearance was very important to me when getting on board.

It used to be that wigs and extensions were mostly worn by celebrities to enhance their appearance on the big screen. Then slowly we began to see wigs in the general population, which were worn by women struggling with cancer. Now it seems like every other woman you see on the on the street is wearing some type of wig or extension. What does that tell us? It says that women place a lot of emphasis on their image and that they definitely like the look of length and volume.

There are many factors that cause thinning hair and hair loss in women. Some examples are environmental factors such as arid or humid climates, bad styling habits such as over processing and excessive heat, as well as health issues such as cancers and hormonal imbalance. One thing for certain is that when the health of hair has been stretched to its limit whether by our own hand or because we are suffering from illness, continuing to use chemical based shampoos and conditioners will continue to deteriorate the health of your hair. This is why BellaGeneration Hair System exists, to offer a natural and healthier way to cleanse while simultaneously nourishing the hair.

2. What are you most proud of when you think about your company? What were some of your biggest learning curves or things that surprised you along the way?

I am the most proud about a few things including the overwhelming responses we get from people who try the product for the very first time. We have actually seen tears of shock, disbelief, and joy all at the same time. Woman after woman who shared with us that their hair has never felt or looked better. We love the fact that whether a woman is health conscious or not, that we have an original formula that instantly transforms their hair. The next very proud thing I am of our product is how our CEO had the vision to create a four-level hair system for all women and their various textures. We have Level 1 for straight hair, Level 2 for wavy hair, Level 3 for curly hair and Level 4 for kinky hair, this makes me so proud servicing all cultures, hair textures in one brand.

One of the biggest learning curves that we have come across is how unaware the average women are about how toxic commercial products can be. The fact that our skin is the largest organ on our body, most women don’t think about the fact that what they are washing their hair and bodies in is being absorbed to some degree. While we may not be able to totally eliminate all chemicals from the cosmetics that we use, but we can certainly reduce our exposure by choosing to use natural products whenever possible.

3. What are a few hair tricks you would recommend to other women to keep their hair feeling and looking beautiful?

One of the most common misconceptions around hair care is how often to wash it. There is such a thing as washing your hair “too much.” Most women wash their hair too often because it is what they were taught by their mothers and their mothers before them. How often a person should wash their hair is different from person to person depending on oil secretion. Some scalps secrete more oils while others don’t secrete any at all. But if you are over washing your hair the biggest telltale sign is an oilier scalp and really dry ends. This is because the person is washing their hair so much that the oils are not getting an opportunity to work their way down from the scalp to the tips. In addition, it’s causing the scalp to produce more oil to compensate for the fact that it is being washed at a quicker rate than it can get oil to the ends.

A second tip we have is that the more you use products that are natural, the more the quality of your hair will improve over time.


We at Creative Juice Online wish to thank Wendy Lewis at Beauty In The Bag for this wonderful interview and opportunity. We also wish to give a special thanks to Sandra Evans, Marketing Director for making initial contact to me via LinkedIN.
