Daily Inspiration: Meet Iannelis Ortiz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Iannelis Ortiz.

Hi Iannelis, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I’m from PuertoRico and teaching has been my passion always since I know I had taught all levels, from Pre-K to adults, including incarcerated in a medium security prison, and lately virtually. Most of my 20 years of teaching were in high school.

The 2017 hurricane Maria that passed by Puerto Rico brought me to the USA, spending three years in Rhode Island also teaching. Constantly visiting family in Kansas we decided to move to this awesome state during the CoViD Pandemic in 2020. After all those years teaching, one day, I decided to do something else. Another passion that was sleeping inside of me, sales. Without any experience in sales, I started the search for a small place. That’s how For you Boutique is born. We are located at 10919 Shawnee Mission Parkway.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has been a smooth road, I guess that because all of the patience that I developed through the years makes it feels like that. Challenging, dealing with all the online sellers and pull people back to the brick and mortar stores.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
For You, Boutique is a clothing store that specializes in Latina’s Curvy structure body. As a Bilingual business owner, my clients feel comfortable with their needs.

So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
The fulfillment of a grateful person when finally finds something with good quality and not expensive need.
