Sofia Chacon, MBA, KW The Lakes

NLBWA-IE featured member presents Sofia Chacon: a mother, entrepreneur and community influential.  

Thank you for sharing your story and experiences as an entrepreneur. First, tell us a little bit about you and  your business 

I am a mother to two amazing adults, and a passionate entrepreneur and visionary.  I currently own several businesses all related to Real Estate. I love helping others start a career in real estate and I love working directly with clients when they are selling, buying or investing in Real Estate

Why did you join NLBWA IE?

I joined to find my tribe, of likeminded Latina business owners and entrepreneurs that are passionate about elevating other women.

What’s something about you that not many people know?

I was a mom at 16, and beat all the odds by becoming a successful business owner and entrepreneur. I rarely watch TV but when I do, it is crime documentaries.

Since the beginning of your business, in what areas have you transformed your business in a way you didn’t initially expect?

I didn’t expect that I had to become an expert in all aspects of infrastructure in a business.   I also didn’t expect to impact so many lives with my business, it has been a real blessing to witness and experience.

With everything you have built and continue to work on, from your business to involvement in the community, what do you want to achieve at the end of the day?

At the end of the day, I want to leave all the people I work with both employees, business partners and staff better than I found them. I know that I can dramatically make a difference in my community by operating from a feminine energy and working from a place of love.

Describe yourself in three words?

Unstoppable, Kind, Passionate

What does Women’s History Month mean to you? Tell us about a woman who inspires you and why.

To me its a celebration of women from all generations, it has been quite a journey, I am where I am in business because of the shoulders I stand on, the brave shoulders of women that fought for us to have equal opportunity.   I admire my mother, because she has always been an entrepreneur. Coming to a country where she didn’t speak the language didn’t stop her from constantly looking for ways to add income to the household. She is also the most loving, kind and most inclusive woman I have ever met. Honored and blessed to call her my mother.

LEILA ™ AWARDS CEREMONY As the Inland Empire business community turns a new leaf in 2023, Latina-Owned businesses appear as resolute and valuable as a gold-spreading radiance that lights the path for future women entrepreneurs. The inspiration for this year’s LEILA Awards is taken from what is the most valuable and reliable; a ‘Gold Standard.’ Latina-owned businesses in the Inland Empire exemplify the qualities of pure gold recognized for their remarkable adaptability, strength, and relentless spirit and are formed through a transformation that requires ingenuity, grit, and a winning mindset. During the event, we’ll examine the findings of the most recent NLBWA-IE research study in partnership with UCR. This analysis focuses on the digital divide’s disproportionate impact on Latina-owned businesses, particularly the lack of access to media literacy in the Inland Empire region. The Latinas nominated are entrepreneurs that have demonstrated leadership and service to their community. We are thrilled to recognize these brilliant women in 3 categories: LATINA EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR AWARD, LATINA OWNED EMERGING BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD, and LATINA OWNED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD.
