ELISIGNIAN "LISSY" RIOS “I started because I wanted an extra income to help my family.” Elisignia "Lissy" Rios

Hello everyone! Inspiration 4 Life Magazine is back, and we are ready to showcase all the different people, businesses and more with you. We want to let you know all about our Cover Girl. Her name is Elisignia “Lissy” Rios and she is an inspiring Businesswomen. You definitely want to do Business with her. She is originally from Puerto Rico, moved to Boston and is now residing here is San Antonio for the past 6 years. Here are the questions we asked Lissy so you can get to know her better. 1. Introduce yourself and tell us a little about yourself. Response: Hi, my name is Elisignia Rios, I go by Lissy. I have an amazing husband for 28 yrs., 2 wonderful kids, and an adorable 3yr old grandson. I love my family and I am a determined, hardworking person. I rejoice when I see friends and others become successful in life.

2. Tell us about your Business/Product. Response: My business is Paparazzi Accessories and our Mission statement is to bring strength, independence, and empowerment to individuals and their families by building confidence and financial freedom through affordable fashion. While $5 jewelry may not change the world, I believe those who wear it will. Paparazzi Jewelry is lead and nickel free, everything is $5 plus tax of course. The metal is made out of minerals and your skin will not break or get a rash. I know this because for 26 years I was not able to use any jewelry due to allergies and breakout. So, when I gave Paparazzi a try, to this day, I have not had any breakouts or reaction when I wear the jewelry. 3. When did you start the Business? Response: I started Paparazzi August 2019 as a consultant. As a result, I now own a mobile Jewelry box where I can travel and sell Paparazzi at different events. 4. Why did you start the Business? Response: I started because I wanted an extra income to help my family, and for the pleasure of meeting new people. 5. What is the main message or purpose of your Business? Response: My main purpose for this business is to connect with people and use it as a tool for ministry. What do I mean by ministry? Glad you asked. What I mean is that I use this business to not only encourage and help people be successful, but to tell them how much God loves them for who they are, and how God can bless them not only financially but spiritually. This is what it's all about. 6. Who or what Inspired you to do what you do? Resposnse: My family inspires me daily. I will do anything for my family, and I know, with their support, we can accomplish great things. 7. Do you have a Team or Staff? Response: My team is an amazing group that supports each other. There is no competition. We work hard, we are united, and we train each other andsolve each other’s problems as a team.

15 Years of Giving Back & having the Heart of Gold

This year I was supposed to celebrate my 15 year anniversary of when we first began our community outreach, programs, events, etc... and 11 years when we relaunched as Inspiration 4 Life. I had to put Inspiration 4 Life on hold for a while because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I stayed home to focus on my baby AJ for his first 6 months after he was born. I finally got out to work a bit and I helped out with events and only focused on a few clients. 2020 was definitely put on hold because of the pandemic but these past months, I’ve taken the time to focus on myself, read amazing books, take online courses to improve on my skills, leadership, mentoring, and updating my sites, since I haven’t been on in a while. I have also been communicating with new amazing women from new FB groups and have been inspired to get back to doing what I love. Although, the majority of my work will still be done from home, it’s a good thing Inspiration 4 Life reaches around the world. With all the years we’ve been around, I am so proud of the countless number of people, families, children, students, schools, churches, businesses, events and so much more we have helped and blessed with our monthly community outreach and programs. Even more so with our Radio/TV/Web Network and Magazine. I can’t even tell you how many people I have interviewed for my Radio Station, WebTV Shows, Live Broadcasting Events, Red Carpet Events, Special Events, Gala’s, Fundraisers, Sports Events, Luncheons, Vendor Events, Golf Tournaments, Inspiration 4 Life Local Heroes Segment on KENS 5, Magazine Articles and so much more. Can you guess how many people that makes? Of course I will forever be grateful for all the help I had throughout the years. With all said, I am excited to get back to work with our Inspiration 4 Life Magazine, Live Radio Shows, FB Lives, virtual events, and taking on clients to help with their Businesses. I am also excited to be mainly be working from home. Please follow me on all my Social Media Sites and I look forward to sharing more with you all and getting back to doing what I love! Much Love to All!!
