Marcela Gomez

Watch her interview >

Marcela Gomez moved to the United States a single mom with a two-year-old son and a lot of people telling her she wouldn’t make it. They obviously didn’t know her. Marcela thrived. Today she owns her own Hispanic marketing agency and recently put her son Esteban through college at NYU. During his first year, Esteban made a film about his mother called “People I Know,” which went on to win a film competition sponsored by The Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

Today, Marcela is focusing on herself — dedicating a good part of each week to exercise and yoga, which keep her healthy in both body and mind.

“My 50 is magnificent.”

She loves the freedom of not having to rely on anyone else, telling us “There’s a lot of very self-aware, self confident single women out there that are starting their lives over again. A whole market who are independent and who want to live the life they didn’t live in their 20s and 30s.” Then, adding with a laugh, “We like younger men.”

Marcela also likes sharing her opinions with brands that try (and often fail) to target her. As far as she’s concerned, most marketers look at everyone 50 to 90 and assume they’re all the same. And today nothing could be further from the truth. 50 for Marcela is far different than 50 was for her grandmother. And she feels it’s very important for you to understand that. To hear more from Marcela, watch her interview below.
