Thank-you to everyone that attended the North Austin Influencers January Mixer. This month’s highlighted Influencer is Dr. Teresa Granillo with Con Mi MADRE.

Dr. Granillo graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelors in Psychology. Additionally,she earned her Masters of Social Work, Masters in Psychology and Ph.D. in Social Work and Psychology from The University of Michigan.

Before joining Con Mi MADRE she was a Tenure-track Assistant Professor at the University of Austin in the School of Social Work.

Con Mi MADRE is a non-profit in the Austin area whose mission is to empower young Latinas and their mothers through educational and support services. Dr. Granillo joined Con Mi MADRE because she was a Latina who grew up with a single mother who didn’t have an education. Her mother encouraged her to do well in school and pursue post-secondary education. While Granillo didn’t have a Con Mi MADRE, she had many mentors outside of her family that helped her throughout high school, college, and graduate school, and she says she owes her success to them. Thus, she believed whole-heartedly in Con Mi MADRE’s mission. She feels she is proof that with the right guidance, support, and mentorship, even Latinas from low-income families can achieve great things in education. For 10 years she has been doing research on finding ways to improve the lives of young Latinas, to provide them with opportunities to be healthy (physically and emotionally), happy, and successful. When presented with the opportunity to serve as the Executive Director of Con Mi MADRE, it was like a dream come true! Now she gets to use her personal experiences and knowledge to empower young Latinas and their mothers to fulfill their dreams of obtaining a college education and having a successful career.

Special thank-you to Casa Chapala Mexican Grill & Cantina for hosting us at their beautifully renovated location and as always great service!

Maribel Garcia Valls, MPH, ACC. spoke to North Austin Influencers on Blogging to attract your ideal client.  Below are some links she shared to help with your blogging efforts:

Website Options: 

WordPress : This one is the best and most respected blogging platforms. It has so many options, yet it also has a bigger learning curve. Just note that you will have to pay for a hosting site with this option.

Weekly: This one is simple and easy to use if you want to build the site yourself. However, Google prefers WordPress for blogs.

WixThis is also a simple website and a cheaper option, but it also very limited. Again, Google prefers WordPress for blogs.

Blogging Tools:

Hootsuite:  This tool will help you schedule all your social media at one time.

Mailchimp: Send newsletters for free using Mailchimp.
