We had the good fortune of connecting with Mariangel Avendano and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mariangel, what do you attribute your success to?
-The power of will-
I’m a woman of faith, with an unshakable power of will, I consider myself as a person who never give up in the search of success.
Like many, I have had days of turbulence, where I have not known which path to follow, which is the right one, how to reach my goals or simply patience runs out. We all have tired days. But the key is to take a break and continue, breathe, think, rest, seek inspiration and make the changes you need, but never give up or back down.
Then when the turbulence passes and you see new goals achieved, you will be thankful you haven’t given up.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My passion for design has led me to create this line of tablecloths where I merge my art and something that I enjoy very much, such as sharing a table with my dearest family and friends.
I faithfully believe that a family that eats together, stays together, maintains bonds of love and will have precious memories.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The City of Houston offers magnificent diversity for everyone. I really enjoy the concerts and performances of Miller Outdoor Theater, it is a magical place in the city where music and nature merge, it is a must go spot for all who come to visit
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Juan Carlos Palacios, my best advisor, the numbers’ man, the one that knows where to go and how to go. Its management experience has been invaluable in the creation and growth of Tablarts. He is my husband and partner in this project, we think the decisions and make them together.
I am the creative part, in charge of the networks and platforms. I also carry the responsibility of photograph the brand, do the montages and the attention to the public. He is the man of finance, order and direction.
More than my partner, he has been the one who has impulse me every time the energies run out of me, he keeps me focused and always reminds me the importance of excellence. Mediocrity does not exist for him, no matter what it costs, how difficult could be or the times I have to redesign, he demands me to always give the best.
