Gabriela Berrospi is actively spreading empowerment to the Hispanic community with her business venture, Gaby Wall Street. She works to motivate Latinos and give them the tools they need to take control of their own lives and achieve economic freedom by investing in the stock market.
Originally from Peru, Berrospi had a dream of having success in the business world. She began making that dream a reality when she earned a scholarship to NYU while living near Wall Street. Living so close to the lifestyle of a person in finance, she realized what was possible if you put effort into it. With this, she was referring to investing in the stock market.
“If you learn how to trade, if you master it and learn how to apply it, you can do it,” said Berrospi.
Berrospi’s venture took a turn when she attended a conference and met a well-known Hispanic influencer and started a conversation about Berrospi’s future. She realized that although she had been teaching others what she had learned about trading, Berrospi had never taught it in Spanish to the Hispanic community. This group of people lacking support was a massive opportunity for Berrospi to become the voice for members of an untouched market and primarily the advocate for women in the Hispanic community.
“Go against the status quo. You can be your own Wall Street.”
The ‘How-To’ business is currently very successful, and Berrospi received advice to enter that market with her venture. The influencer kindly insisted on promoting Berrospi’s start-up on his Instagram story. Overnight, Berrospi was contacted by over five hundred women interested in her coaching and empowerment in becoming successful traders. A thousand followers within the first hour were posting about and sharing Berrospi’s venture. This immediate acceptance served as proof that there was a business opportunity in entering the Hispanic market.
So far, Berrospi has coached eighty clients within the last couple of months and is thrilled at the rate these women are seeking support. It can, at times, be overwhelming for Berrospi to expose herself in her posts, but it has also been a great learning experience. Though her increased work in addressing the audience has been new for Berrospi, she has loved the opportunity to serve and personally contribute to the community.
“Patience and discipline are the most important things to succeed in this industry.”
Sometimes people are more focused on just short-term strategies and lack the attention needed for long-term planning. Staying on top of this routine requires discipline.
Berrospi is constantly facing challenges of proving herself as a young woman and a minority. Her identity has worked in her favor when connecting with her clients because it has established a connection within the community. A goal of Berrospi’s venture is to show Hispanic women that they have the ability to make money to support themselves.
“You don’t need a lot of money to start out. Start small and go from there. Continue to contribute to your portfolio, and in the end, it will empower you.”
Berrospi’s just released an advanced online course known as VIP Traders in partnership with her partner Alan Burak, a hedge fund owner and trader with more than 20 years of experience. The purpose of this course is to make their combined knowledge globally accessible. More than a course, VIP traders is a community that aims to help people achieve economic freedom. Soon, Berrospi will not only inspire people in the Hispanic Community but also people from countries all over the world.
