Embracing Numbers and Entrepreneurship with Diva Mejias

In our latest episode of the R.E.A.L. MOMS Podcast, I had the pleasure of sitting down with the incredible Diva Mejias, an entrepreneur, seasoned finance professional, and a spirited mom and grandma who has truly mastered the art of living abundantly while juggling multiple roles.

Diva joined us to share her journey and insights, offering a treasure trove of advice for mompreneurs everywhere. 

Our conversation was not just informative; it was a heartfelt exchange about the real challenges and triumphs of integrating family life with entrepreneurial passion.

From New York City to Financial Freedom

Diva’s story is a powerful testament to resilience. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she grew up in poverty but never lost sight of her determination to never be hungry again. 

This resolve powered her through an impressive career, spanning over three decades in corporate finance and leading her to entrepreneurship in the realms of tax advisory, real estate, and insurance.

The Power of Numbers

One of the most compelling themes Diva brought to the conversation was the significance of numbers in our lives. 

“Numbers tell stories,” she said, and these stories can guide us through business decisions and personal financial management. 

With her background in accounting and finance, Diva emphasized how essential it is for entrepreneurs, especially women, to get comfortable with numbers to build sustainable businesses and generational wealth.

If you’d like to understand data analysis and numbers when it comes to real estate, ICONS of Real Estate is a growth community for real estate agents looking for tools and information to get ahead and stand out in their areas of operation. 

The community has helped hundreds of women streamline their real estate businesses and careers by giving them tools and helping them strategize on how to be the best when it comes to buying and selling properties.

Financial Management for Mompreneurs

We dived deep into practical strategies for financial management. Diva shared insights on the importance of tracking every expense and understanding where your money goes. 

She discussed the simplicity of starting with something as accessible as examining bank statements or using apps like Rocket Money to manage finances better. 

For those intimidated by budgeting, she suggested starting by understanding your cash inflows and outflows and gradually taking control of your financial narrative.

Building a Strong Professional Network

Another key point was the importance of building a strong support network. Diva introduced us to the "BAIL" concept—having a banker, accountant, insurance agent, and lawyer in your circle. 

These professionals form a support system that can guide and assist you through various aspects of personal and business finance.

Community, Giving Back, and Personal Growth

Both Diva and I are passionate about giving back to the community. We discussed how integrating community service into our business models not only enriches our lives but also strengthens our connections with those we serve. 

Diva’s approach to philanthropy and community involvement is a vibrant part of her entrepreneurial spirit.

Future Endeavors and Continuous Learning

Diva is not one to rest on her laurels. She shared her excitement about upcoming projects, including her books that focus on real estate and personal identity. 

These resources are crafted to assist others in navigating the complexities of real estate and personal development.

To all mompreneurs and grandmompreneurs out there, Diva’s parting message was about embodying your identity and embracing change as you grow. 

Her life’s journey from the streets of Brooklyn to becoming a multi-faceted professional is a narrative of transformation and tenacity.

This is just a summary of our conversation. We had so much more that we discussed in the nearly hour-long episode. To fully explore in detail what we discussed, tune in to the podcast today.
