STARTING HER OWN BUSINESS AFTER A SUCCESSFUL CAREER
Andreina immigrated to the U.S. from Puerto Rico as a child and was raised by her grandmother. Through sheer determination and perseverance, Andreina earned her bachelor’s degree and found herself in a great job that allowed her to coordinate an entrepreneurship program for a top university in Boston.
That got her to thinking about starting her own company. The Vieras is a team of account professionals that offer mobile, outsourced administrative, financial, HR, and marketing solutions to growing businesses.
Although Andreina had a strong sense of mission and knew how to provide administrative services to clients, she didn’t know how to make her business profitable. The one year EforAll Business Accelerator program offered at no cost proved to be invaluable; providing Andreina with vital technical and practical business knowledge.
Today, Andreina has 32 team members and she is committed to hiring employees from the greater Lawrence area who may not have a great opportunity. When reflecting on the impact EforAll has had on her, she says, “Now I am empowered and I’m able to do things on my own time and with my own will. EforAll is life-changing.”
