ABOUT

angie carrillo llc

We're a multi-disciplinary social media consulting group who believes you can sell and be social at the same time.

I'm Angie Carrillo, serial entrepreneur, investor, world traveler. Thanks for being here. This blog started in Silicon Valley when I got 'asked to leave' from my own venture backed company. 

I thought my business was 'my baby'. I was serving my business -sweat equity- but my business was not serving me. The business that was supposed to bring me freedom was pulling me away from the life I wanted.

Overworked, underpaid, and with the dream of 'being my own boss', I felt like in a long distance relationship with freedom even when the accolades, awards were there.

I paid expensive real life lessons so you don't have to...

Went from being a broke "CEO" not being able to pay myself, fired from my own company to redesigning my life

My bucket list was filled with beautiful destinations I'd visit one day when achieving financial freedom. But that seemed only possible when I retire age 60+.

I decided to start experimenting with different options to take matters into my own hands because in the end no one cares more about how you live your life than yourself.

FINDING INSPIRATION FROM 

Slow mornings, time in the beach, local cafe's and great spa days.

the founder

angie C. R.

World citizen, Angie brings a Silicon Valley trained business and marketing background to the online world.

Wanna know what lights me up? Making people feel, own, and celebrate their freedom to be themselves and feel enough. Sometimes this journey is like a rollercoaster and if I can be that permission granter that whispers: “you can do this” while the rest of the world is provoking not feeling enough for not getting to certain #, # of followers, or $ in your bank account then I’ll consider my job done.

LOVES: beach, chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, travel, startups, small businesses

START & SCALe YOUR BUSINESS

I have a branding studio specialized in web design for personal brands and businesses. If you don't want to deal with tech we build it for you.

turn business into brand

In a world where you can be anything, be the brand that’s YOU. As a marketer I specialize in affiliate and influencer marketing to turn your business into a brand with raving fans.

work online & travel

Being location independent is great but working remotely could become not half as glamours with deadlines and lousy internet. Read about my stories and recommendations on the blog.

HERE TO HELP YOU

No boring seminars here. Just straightforward advice from someone who has been in your shoes

Wanna know what lights me up? Making people feel, own, and celebrate their freedom to be themselves and feel enough. Sometimes this journey is like a rollercoaster and if I can be that permission granter that whispers: “you can do this” while the rest of the world is provoking not feeling enough for not getting to certain #, # of followers, or $ in your bank account then I’ll consider my job done.

I'm ALL ABOUT

Straight talk, enjoying life now,  being in the beach, travel, and local cafes, short emails.

I'M NOT ABOUT

Bandaid fixes,
that hustle culture,  long emails, sleezy sales tactics, bullsh*t, band-aid fixes, boring anything.

agree? we're probably a great fit.

TALKING ABOUT:

I'M NOT ABOUT:

I BELIEVE IN:

My superpower is to open opportunities for women & minorities to be their best and scale their business with freedom, abundance, and peace. 

I  live to empower women in business and Latinx to create businesses and brands aligned with their personality, purpose that make profits.

I believe everyone has had a billion dollar idea and businesses are the best way to work on your personal development.

Graduated university Top 3 of my class! Overachiever much?
But, business is not about books...

I was working full time  in my corporate job while putting myself through university with a full scholarship. Sleep? What is that?

2011

I ate my first business 🤦🏽‍♀️🧁
I had a side hustle cupcake shop with my bestie. Went through a breakup, so eating all our cupcakes seem a rational step right? Emotional rollercoaster of biz & life 101.

2012

I prepared to quit my job! I was decided to be my own boss but I didn't know what business to start. I had so many ideas! 

I joined a local Startup Weekend.
I almost don't go because I thought I had to go with my business plan prepared -hey, I was coming from corporate- and won First Place! The start my entrepreneurial journey.

2014

Worked as Strategy Leader of the largest pharmaceutical company in Mexico. I got so good at getting new products to market I did business plans in a week (not that you need one).

The Backstory

A look back on the past decade

BACKSTORY

Moved to the UK. By proximity to the Center for the Future of Humanity I understood why the world could end or be saved through tech (Artificial Intelligence).

So, I decided to learn to code and teach Latinx kids to code to have representation in who is coding our future. Still technology looks pretty white and male.

2010

Went to study at UC Berkeley for a summer and lasting relationships that changed my investing game.

After getting a lot of 'No's from investors in Silicon Valley, I worked as an Entrepreneur in Residence & later Admissions Committee at Draper University, an accelerator program in Silicon Valley by billionaire investor Tim Draper. Helping entrepreneurs is a big part of my mission.

2016

Did I tell you I lived at NASA Ames for 6 months? Yes, I did meet astronauts. And no, I don't plan to go to space like Jeff Bezos. We have work to do on Earth first.

I did Singularity University Global Solutions Program with a full scholarship by Google and during the SU Ventures incubator program co-founded a biotech company after almost dying with an antibiotic resistant infection.
Talk about coming back from the dead!

2017

I thought that being an entrepreneur meant working 24/7. We are the boss of our life and our company is just a part of it. When I quit my start-up, I realized that I was not doing many things in my bucket list because of work. I travelled around the world.

I started investing to make sure that my money is where my mouth is, that is entrepreneurs. It was a scary step.
I'm one of SoGal Ventures LPs limited partners and I've been learning to invest.

I lived in Brazil until the pandemic. I speak a little Portuguese and dance really bad at Carnaval, but I still miss it. 

Then, I was pretty much at home all year. Didn't we all? 

When I was ready to get vaccinated, I had COVID. While my lungs got better, my mental health got worse and took time to recover.

the grand lesson

what a year, eh?

ready to explore

Maybe she's born with it
Maybe it's 10 years in the making

All in all, this taught me something: You never know when your detour will lead you to your destiny.

I'M A GLOBAL CITIZEN

We are all global citizens! It doesn't matter if you have checked off countries on your bucket list or if you speak many languages. We only have one world to live in. That is why I care about sustainable products and brands.

I am a citizen of the world. I was born in Peru and have lived in 4 other countries. I speak 4 languages and have visited over 40 countries. But since I could ask questions to my mom, I would wonder why there are borders on a map if it's all one planet.

Where I stand on all the truly important things.
