For some in my generation, the word “millennial” is tied to connotations of scorn and shame. I wear it as a badge of honor.
As a generation we’re not perfect (or the best), but we could not be more different from our predecessors. We dream big, and we can’t handle life without chasing those dreams.
The internet is our second arm, as an omnipotent presence since the dawn of our lives.
We grew up amongst global instability and a renewed interest in social justice. Change is our way of life – it is much easier for us to handle than the values our parents worshiped: stability, continuity, and tenure.
We feed our many eclectic interests, hobbies, and talents. We want a career that combines them all (even if it doesn’t exist yet).
We will not be happy until we manifest it.

At the age of 31, I’ve learned, mastered, and abandoned a total of 7 different jobs (curtain/carpet salesman, call center manager, database/website administrator, non-profit fundraiser, and operations manager). I’ve also learned, mastered, and abandoned twice as many career objectives (completing a Bachelor’s in Cinema-Television from the University of Southern California, and an MPA in Non-Profit IT Management from the same institution).
Throughout that confusing journey of twists and turns, the only thing that remained constant was a passion for non-religious spirituality. In my own personal journey, spiritual thinking became tied to numerology (an ancient-greek mystic system that doesn’t attempt to explain life or creation, but organizes life lessons into a fascinating pattern of 9 year cycles).
After transforming my life through online education (platforms such as Lynda.com and Udemy, and services like Audible Audiobooks), I understood my ultimate career objective: I will use numerology (first and foremost a form of self-improvement entertainment), as a tool to promote lifelong learning with the use of online education tools.
With the concept for Teledipity, I won the StartOUT Smart Pilot Scholarship program to attend the Founder Institute in 2013, and was one of the 10 finalists for the USC Stevens Center for Innovation Showcase that same year (a process that allowed me to launch this platform in 2015).
Teledipity SAPI de CV is a proud Mexican corporation based in Querétaro where I was born and raised.
I am committed to the growth and further development of this community. Reach out to me anytime at email@example.com.
