If you live on the island of Curacao and never heard of Passionistas Pop-Up Fair, you must be living under a rock. This fair is going to celebrate its first year anniversary and I wanted to know more about the force behind this event. The very first fair was held in the backyard of her home. Very cozy with a small group of vendors selling their hand made products. Eventually she moved it to a bigger location and now she’s having a big celebration fair. Let’s get some insights about this bossbabe.
Why did you start a business of your own?
Last year I came back to Curaçao and I haven’t been here for a while, so I gave myself a two year span to explore the market on the island and after that I would start something on my own. I was looking for full time jobs that were related to Marketing & Communication and didn’t just wanted do whatever. In the Netherlands, I worked for several companies and I also worked for a company in Madrid who eventually sent me to Morocco. Which of course was awesome, but now I was looking for the stability.
