“When my mother and I moved from Honduras, I was 12. She thought I was going to be a wildly successful housekeeper because I could speak English,” Ruby laughing. “My personality just didn’t let me stop there. Not because I was too good for it, but because I had too much ambition. That’s what got me here, an ambition to learn and learn and learn. That’s the trick.”
As a child, Ruby was never taught to dream big. And for a long time shedidn’t. But what she did do was commit herself to her improvement. Even as a single mother at the age of seventeen, Ruby didn’t stop climbing. Her wealth of knowledge continued to grow by the day, and with it her hopes and dreams.
In 2014 & 2015 Ruby was listed by INC Magazine on their list of fastest growing companies in America. Ruby has worked with dozens of magazines and celebrities on TV shows, music videos, and runway fashion shows. Her work has appeared in FHM, Maxim, Sheen and New Beauty magazines and many others. In addition to Inc., Ruby has also been featured in Alegria magazine and Diversity Journal. She’s worked closely with Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve-o, Ru Paul, and Rockmond Dunbar just to name a few celebrities.
“The point is, I’m not successful just because I got a bachelor’s degree and some certifications. I am successful because I found my passion and devote myself to just that.”
That hunger to learn and experience the world is why Ruby’s business is one of America’s fastest growing private companies. In other words, her story is the American dream, done right!
