"sienna meneses woman on a mission"What do you enjoy most about your profession and why did you choose it in the first place? What was the inspiration for your company/project?

My profession in the veterinary field was chosen due to always having a passion for helping animals since girlhood. What I enjoy most about working with animals and veterinary medicine is being able to contribute positively toward the animal population in this time of drastic need of human kindness toward animals. Did you know that we are on the brink of the sixth mass-extinction? More than 500 species of land animals were found to be on the brink of extinction, and are likely to be lost within 20 years. I learned this while completing a fellowship at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, where I was able to realize my passion of working with aquatic animal species. 

As for my businesses, I woke up one day and it had dawned on me that no matter how much I love my 9 to 5 and no matter how great I am at my job, I am working for someone else and will never get the money that I deserve if I only have a nine-to-five. At a nine-to-five, I am not in control of how much money I earn, because I am not working for myself. My employer is in control of my income, because I am working for him! I didn’t want to get stuck in the rat-race; my dream of working as an aquatic animal veterinarian was plagued by the shadow of not being in control of my own income and I found myself to be losing my passion. I didn’t see working for someone else as “for me” and hated to feel what was meant to be a life-long passion die, so I started reading financial literacy books.

 After educating myself and speaking to several mentors, I decided to work for myself and to pay myself first. I finally got the courage to start up my own businesses (plural!). Someday when some (if not all) of these businesses become successful, I hope to be generating enough passive income to where my future career as a veterinarian isn’t my main source of income. I plan to remove myself from the rat-race, and only work when I want to. I don’t want my dream of being a veterinarian to be clouded by the negativity of being stuck in the “rat-race”, and when I have enough liquid funds, I dream to open my own veterinary hospital. 

From where do you draw inspiration? Who have been your role models, mentors, etc?

I draw inspiration from people that I consider to be successful in life. My main goals in life are to leave a legacy, travel, and to have excellent health, wealth, and prosperity. I love to be inspired to achieve my goals, and I find inspiration from reading poetry by Robert Frost, following successful entrepreneurs, stating positive affirmations, and listening to brain waves on YouTube.  I love to read financial literacy books and self-help books in order to be inspired to become a better version of myself. My role models include Robert Kiyosaki and David Goggins.

What do you do to keep yourself sharp? What one thing have you done in the past year that has made a significant difference in your life?

To keep myself sharp, I follow the “Millionaire Dollar Morning Routine” from a millionaire entrepreneur instagram page that I follow. Let me walk you through my morning.

Every morning, I wake up at 5:00am. Then, I make my bed, brush my teeth, brush my hair, take my vitamins, and get changed into my exercise wear.

 At 5:30am, I exercise. My exercise consists of stretches, yoga poses, pushups, lunges, and sit-ups. 

At 6:00am, I take a shower.  Then I put on comfortable clothes for the day.

 At 6:15am, I meditate. I prefer guided meditations, and one of my favorite meditations is guided by Tony Robbins.

 At 6:30am, I listen to an audiobook. Recently, I read Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Millionaire Next Door.

 At either 7:15am or 7:30am, I eat a healthy breakfast.  My favorite breakfast consists of a piece of fruit, sixteen ounces of water, and oat-grain toast.

At either 7:30am or 7:45am, I start working and investing. I have recently started formulating business plans for six separate businesses, all to be launched as soon as possible!

What one thing would you like to learn this year?

This year was full of a lot of accomplishments for me. If we must limit it to one, then I suppose we must! Due to the year being almost over, my short-term goal for the end of this year is to listen to 6 audiobooks on business in the remaining 9 days of 2020. 

What do you like to do for fun?

For fun, I love to spend time with my beloved husband, Rodrigo Meneses. One of my favorite things to do with my husband is dance under the moonlight to Moondance by Van Morrison until we can’t dance anymore. 

“Let us read and let us dance, two amusements that will never do any harm to the world.” -Voltaire
