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

Hi Magüis, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
I recently co-founded a merchandise shop where a big percentage of the sales go to a non-profit in Mexico called Solo por Ayudar, which has different health programs for the people with low income.

What should our readers know about your business?
I represent and empower talent but I am focused in Latin women based in U.S and Latin America . I recently relaunched my mom’s career in Mexico and made it to Elle Magazine front cover. I grew up in the entertainment business and always was passionate an interested in being behind the scenes, negotiating and pitching ideas. It hasn’t been easy as there is a lot of competition out there and people who don’t want to help you. Sometimes you feel like you want to quit. You have to be persistent, patient and gentle to yourself. The right things will happen at the right time. I am about to launch a new fragrance line , I have always been passionate about scents and how they affect you psychologically. I am now developing my own line .
I also want to represent more women in business with social impact as it is very important to contribute and give back to our society.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Croft Alley on Beverly Hills. Cafe Stella on Silverlake great for dinner and drinks.
Gjelina on Abbott Kinney.
Il Pastaio on Beverly Hills , must!
Zinque on Melrose Avenue also a very nice spot.

I love exploring new spots and finding out hidden gems. Going to the beach to S.M for a run or Topanga or Griffith Observatory for a Hike.
