Hi, my name is Belen Baquerizo.
I am a friend, a sister, a blogger, and a marketer. I was born in Ecuador and moved to the USA when I was 11.
I started A Hint of Life in 2016 after going through some difficult financial times with my family to help me learn and navigate the world as a career woman. A Hint of Life was brought to the internet to give myself, and my readers a little bit of spark (life) when they came back home from a long day at work.
Thanks to A Hint of Life I have had the opportunity to learn not only about personal development but it has been a tool for my career. I have always had a full-time job and A Hint of Life taught to how to stay disciplined and diversify my income. I”m a firm believer in multiple income streams.
Life took a turn mid 2017. My brother was suffering from severe panic attacks and I was crushed. I didn’t know how to handle the stressful situation and how to help him. He lives in Colorado and I live in Miami. It was sad to watch my family be on an anxious state at all times – we always expected the worse. And so, I turned to junk food and alcohol. No, I didn’t become an alcoholic but I was definitely drinking more than I should.
Late in 2017 I decided I needed to stop and make a change. I played volleyball until my first year in college and so sports and fitness are second nature to me. It was weird that I turned to not taking care of myself, when I should have known better. Exercise can help us so much. I started going to the gym regularly to let all my feelings out.
My first challenge was the 12-weekl BBG program, then youtube videos, then sweat to shred it by Sarah’s Day, then beachbody.
2018 was a year of learning to take care of myself once again. That’s when it hit me. A Hint of Life always comes back to help me bring a little spark into my life. This time it was fitness, wellness, healthy living.
And so, here we are! 2019 a year of growth, of understanding and continuing my healthy living journey. Still working full-time, growing my business online, and teaching others how to do the same.
A Hint of Life is a recollection of my life the past 3 years. My hope is to inspire you to live healthier and better. My hope is to show you that one way is not necessarily the way. My hope is for you to fully go after your dreams and raise the bar HIGH. You and I, and everyone in between deserves the life of our their dreams… if and only when we are willing to work for it.
Thank you so much for reading my blog. It means the world to me to be a part of your world.
