We had the good fortune of connecting with Maribel Gonzalez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maribel, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
The habits that I feel helped us succeed are, no matter how cliché it sounds, to never give up. There are times where we feel there is too much going on. But as entrepreneurs, we knew we were taking the hard road where not everyone has taken. No matter where you grew up or what your education is nothing can beat hard work and consistency. Small wins build consistency. We take things day by day and instead of looking at how far we have to go, we look at how far we’ve come. And that alone gives us the drive to get up every day. We want to emphasize to anyone considering starting something new to just start. You will figure it out as you go. Everyone starts with 0 followers, 0 customers, 0 team members. Staying consistent, drive, and hard work is truly the recipe for success. We also want to give credit to our family, friends, and team members who were an amazing support system. My business partner and also amazing husband Filemon Garcia is the one that keeps me going. I am thankful for having such a supportive life partner that if I can’t be strong he will be strong for both of us and vice versa. I owe a big emphasis on our success to the loving people around me.

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?
We love to visit Truluck’s Seafood in The Woodlands. We recently went there for our daughter’s 11th birthday and the food was divine! It is an awesome family seafood elegant place to visit if you’re in the area. Another amazing spot is Vida Mariscos on Tomball Parkway. It is a seafood and sports bar restaurant and the customer service is impeccable! Their Marchela (Michelada with fresh shrimp and your choice of beer) are mouthwatering and delicious! It is a great place to visit with our team after a long work week. An awesome spot to relax and enjoy everyone’s company. And last but not least the ever-famous Perry Steakhouse! My go-to is their prime New York strip steak! This place is great for date night!
