On today’s episode, we are visited by the Queen of Concrete, Lupita Vazquez, a leader in the male-dominated construction industry and an integral figure in the Hispanic construction community. Tune in to hear Lupe tell the story of how she entered the world of construction after being told it wasn’t for her, the elevator pitch that changed her career, and how the nickname ‘Reina Del Concreto’ helped Lupe realize her integral role as a powerful woman in construction. We discuss the power of referrals in the construction industry and Lupe reveals the responsibility she feels to help empower a new generation of women. Next, she tells us how she started Reina Diamond Blades and gives us all the details of Expo Contratista, the largest Hispanic, niche catered expo where everyone is welcome. Finally, Lupe explains that Reina Diamond Blades serve as a powerful symbol of cutting through and keeping on when you run into something hard, and why she believes that every woman in construction is a role model. We hope you join us!
