She always dreamed of owning her own business and/or being a writer. She pursued her business goals for a decade before finally gaining the courage to try her hand at writing after turning 30 years old.
She began by writing technical documents, blogs, e-books for companies. She eventually started a career blog that was hand selected to join AOL’s Lifestyle Collective.
Naly spent her career in Marketing and Public Relations and was comfortable as corporate spokeswoman. However, her Keynote Speeches took a different, more heartfelt, and story telling approach that instantly connected with other women in business and female founders.
She steadily built up her courage by speaking about marketing and helping small businesses. Her first audience was three people, then ten, then twenty, then fifty, and so forth. In winter 2018, Naly became a Keynote Speaker at the Women in Business Conference held by SCORE and the U.S. Small Business Association. She later was Keynote Speaker at the 2019 Women2Women Summit, and various business events. Naly was also welcomed back to her alma mater as a featured guest at The Thomas Entrepreneurship Hub where she shared her journey from college student to entrepreneur.
During COVID, Naly began channeling her writing into poetry as a way to cope with the pandemic. She produced one poem per week for one year with an accompanying photo and music selection to match the mood of the poem. She was featured as a guest on the popular podcast, A Moment Of Your Time. She read her original poem, “The Grind,” to kick off Women’s History Month.
