According to actor, author and philanthropist George Lopez, Latino and Hispanic business owners must learn to ask for — and accept — help for their businesses to thrive.
“To be able to ask somebody for help is considered a weakness in our culture … And a lot of the times when you see other people succeed in something that you felt uncomfortable doing, we've limited ourselves and we hurt ourselves. So we can't be afraid to be able to say that ‘I need help,’” Lopez said during the “Unidos We Grow” Roundtable, sponsored by Intuit QuickBooks, TurboTax and Mailchimp, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Latino and Hispanic entrepreneurs Kathy Cano-Murillo of The Crafty Chica, chef Andres De Oliveira of AndresCooking and Certified Financial Planner Brittney Castro were also part of the roundtable event. The discussion was moderated by journalist Soledad O’Brien.
Throughout the event, Lopez shared his business insights with as much vulnerability and candor as the truth-bombs he drops in his stand-up comedy routine. You can watch the full roundtable by hitting play on the video below:
