CLOSING REMARKS

Sandra Ruiz is the Owner of Rio Insurance Agency and Creator and Host of “Socializando Con Sandra”. She has successful pivoted her small business and herself during the Covid 19 pandemic. Considering how her business was suffering and assuming other businesses were as well, in 2020 Sandra had the idea to create and host a FB Live show, “Socializando con Sandra”, where she highlights local businesses within the Middle Rio Grande region. She started by interviewing small businesses and giving them a platform to discuss with the audience where they are located and what they sell. This show has grown exponentially, and an idea has grown into a full-blown project. Sandra feels extremely blessed God has placed great people in her life’s journey that have helped her grow and better herself.
