Lessons from Local Leaders:

Gloria Fonseca

Have you ever dared to leave everything familiar behind and start anew, armed with nothing but your dreams and determination? Gloria Fonseca, the visionary behind McLean Living and Great Falls Living, did exactly that. Her fascinating voyage from a family business in Honduras to establishing boutique lifestyle magazines in the heart of Northern Virginia showcases the true mettle of an entrepreneur. During our discussion, Gloria, also known as Gloria Bruni, peels back the layers of her incredible story, highlighting her partnership with Best Version Media and the challenges she faced while building a brand during a global pandemic.

As we wade through the intricacies of entrepreneurship, you’ll get a taste of Gloria’s own undertakings, from the strategic expansion of services to the recent addition of a fundraising app to her portfolio. The conversation is a blend of business acumen and personal pursuits, underscoring the importance of diversification and the pursuit of education, as she share her goal of obtaining a PhD without sidelining her magazine endeavors. We also emphasize the profound impact of community and kindness, from finding tennis partners to offering a helping hand to newcomers in our neighborhoods. Join us for an episode that not only motivates but equips you with the insights to turn your own visions into reality.
