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

Hi Ramón, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
When I created Lets Connect Show, I did it with a personal need in mind: to connect with people who lived in a new city for me: Houston, TX. As I was connecting with more and more people and making them do business with each other thanks to the power of Networking, I realized that my need was that of many and also in different cities. LCS brings you the opportunity to meet new people, expand your network of contacts, do business and gives the different Latino communities strength ties with each other. My greatest pride is that these objectives are achieved in each show, being recognized by Mayor Sylvester Tyler in December 2021 as “the event that has helped entrepreneurs and businessmen from the Latino community to grow their businesses.” This positive impact in my community has also been achieved in Miami, Orlando, Sarasota, Tampa, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Chicago, Panama City… Soon we will be positively impacting San Juan, Puerto Rico, Dallas and other cities.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Since I was little my passion has been to communicate: through music (I am a musician), acting, as a presenter, announcer, producer, creative, director. I have found in the recording and editing of videos a new way of communicating both for myself and my clients. I have reinvented myself many times, I have suffered setbacks but life with its obstacles has taught me not to stop, I faithfully believe in what I do and defend my principles, my processes and my projects like no one else. The secret is that I have never allowed anyone to truncate my dreams and when I set a goal I achieve it. I am very organized, structured and extremely punctual and that has earned me high credibility in the field. I love creating and I love working as a team, I am fascinated by giving opportunities to those who have just arrived in this country and I give light to those who believe they are in the dark. I am fascinated by making others also believe in themselves and little by little I am going with my show educating people that it is possible and that together we should be echo of the positive. My biggest reward? May each one find their place, grow and evolve hand in hand with hard work, happiness and helping each other.

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?
Ohh Houston… Houston is Heaven! These are my very favorite spots! As you are a very close friend of mine, you must know that I´m a foodie and I LOVE OYSTERS! Check out this place: Yummy Seafood & Oyster Bar! Also I love Japanese Food, so I recommend Kokai Sushi and Lounge in Katy. Last but not least, the very best Venezuelan food is from El Kourmet, please ask for my friend Jose… you are going to be delighted with the empanadas, arepas, pepitos, patacones and much more. I love outdoors activities and specially I love to visit National Parks and museums. I highly recommend the Houston Museum of Natural Science! …and if you want to spice your life, you must visit and have fun in Lumen! But, of course, don´t forget to visit me every last friday of each month in “Let´s Connect Show” with my partner Daniela Kosan!

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?
I am very passionate about my work and with all the areas in which I work and I inherited that from my parents who taught me responsibility, dedication, commitment, seriousness and love for what is done, if not not done. I owe my parents and my family the incredible support they have given me, always believing in me and giving me the certainty that dreams are pursued and achieved only with hard and responsible work. With this platform that I created at a difficult time in my life, I am not only giving free rein to my creativity and my commitment to make others also create and achieve their dreams, but this platform called Let’s Connect Show allows me to connect with excellence from every point of view (another inheritance from my parents). In these lines I wish to express my utmost gratitude to my Houston community who from the beginning believed in me, believed in the excellence and evolution of a dream that started small but is becoming very big thanks to the magic of merging these ingredients: passion, connection, dedication and commitment. Thank you Houston for making it possible! As I always say: Houston is Heaven!
