Migdalia Diaz

In this episode, Mitchell Levy @HappyAbout and his co-host for the month of February, Lori Ruff @loriruff, hang out with Migdalia Diaz @_MigdaliaDiaz, president of ALPFA: Association of Latino Professionals For America, Boston Chapter ( The interview continues the discussion from the last episode about mentoring and how non-profit organizations like ALPFA have been helping many young Latino and even non-Latino professionals advance to leadership positions and succeed in their chosen career. Migdalia was referred by Lori as an inspirational leader who has been sought out by other chapter presidents of ALPFA for motivation and advice. Having taken a key role in steering such a big organization, Migdalia points out that being a leader allows you to think in ways that you may not in any other opportunity. She also notes that, as a mentor to other chapter presidents, all that was needed was to give them a good nudge and encouraging words like, “Just get out there and do it!” Migdalia sees mentorship as an opportunity to give back, and that it becomes a different relationship and a different conversation when you invest in the development of a person.

Lori emphasizes that, as a mentor, it is important for you to be authentic and unafraid to share your vulnerability. Migdalia agrees, and also notes that when you have a willingness to be that vulnerable, there is always the risk that people are going to judge you. The important thing is that you tried,so you just have to be forgiving of yourself enough to take the next step forward.

    First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for
    aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any suggestions? Bless you!
