When you take life and fill it with resiliency, positive energy, and hardworking you’ll succeed. Maria de la Paz Barbirotto is an Italian entrepreneur whose story is receiving the attention of business and entrepreneurial media for its unique philosophy and social effect. Barbirotto started her first business years ago, in the arts and music industry, putting together a company that had a strong client-centered vision and an ethic value for the respect of artists’needs and creative time.
“The offer was so great that the demand was coming from all over the places and from all kinds of clients. Our problem became not being able to manage such a different variety of personalities, this brought working delay because our time was wasted by who didn’t respect the plans or the timelines, or who was expecting a service that wasn’t included in the contract.” The theory that the more that you give the more that the receiver expects it appears to be true.
Maria Barbirotto says, “I started to understand that with this business model we weren’t able to skim our potential customers by how immature and problematic or ready to collaborate in an empathic atmosphere they were”. That’s when Barbirotto started to study different business models and put human relations and close interactions in the first place. “I received multiple attacks in a specific moment of my life that I needed to slow down with my business
and interrupt several agreements.
The malice and misunderstanding of a few people just kind of enlightened me.” Maria de la Paz Barbirotto decided then to put together a business model that is blinking an eye to a niche target keeping the client-centered vision, concentrating investment, and return under two words: nomadic and diverse.
After 10 years of experience, Barbirotto starts her adventure as a diversification entrepreneur.
“Everybody is so focused on being something on their social media, painting themselves as supportive and ethically correct but I needed to feel that change on my skin. I want to redeem the mistakes I made in the past through the lessons I learned.” The diversification theory maintains a human-centered vision and distributes Maria Barbirotto’s businesses in multiple activities that put human relations and a human-sized concept as their main feature.
Small businesses allow the entrepreneur to concentrate more energies into giving without losing, but actually gaining, in terms of serenity and mental stability. “This world runs fast, everybody’s competing for a spot in the first place. I want to go slow, I want to reconnect with our earth and its values, distributing my energies in small and human-sized activities that actually bring positive vibes and adds in terms of value to the field I’m operating in.”
Besides managing the international Dj and producer of bass music BEGGEI, Maria is the owner of an important promotional and communication agency that works for emerging artists with the intention of educating on a human and professional side new nomadic business professionals, in addition to the PR services they offer to a niche of selected artists.
In her diverse portfolio, we can find art, music, kitchen, language, writing. All the diversification is held together by the same concept of human-sized business, straight connection with the reality, and a journey back to the roots of our being on this Earth. “I don’t want to disconnect from the real world, I need to feel that what I’m doing is valuable, working on managing different activities in different fields makes me exercise my brain to maintain a solid and simple attachment to what I can add to this world. Business is just how I express myself to communicate the values and share the skills that I have”.
A midway road between business management and philosophy, Maria de la Paz entrepreneurial vision it could definitely be an inspiration to navigate new exceptional and alternative ways to large-scale business without disconnecting from the world and the human-sized concept

A Few Things to Check Before Hiring an Electrician
Hiring an Electrician
Many homeowners attempt to do home improvement projects themselves, and the results are often disappointing. However, trying to handle electrical work independently can lead to costly errors and injuries. Discover a few things to check before hiring an electrician to get the job done right and stay within the budget.
When looking for an electrician, the first thing to consider is whether they are properly trained. The electricians should attend a vocational school or other recognized institute to learn how to perform the work correctly. Discuss the training process to find the right team for the job.
Comparing electricians includes reviewing their relevant experience performing similar work. Homeowners should discuss the project scope with potential electricians and determine whether they have experience in that area. Also, ask for recommendations and referrals from previous satisfied customers.
Once homeowners have a list of prospects, check online reviews to narrow down the possibilities based on customer experiences. Often, people discover more about an electrician or other service providers by reading reviews and talking to others. Also, discuss referrals with neighbors, co-workers, friends, and families to determine which services handled the work most efficiently.
Licensed and Insured
Verify your state’s requirement for license and insurance and then ensure the electrician is compliant to protect your most valuable asset. It is often tempting to hire an unlicensed or uninsured electrician to cut costs, but that often adds up to spending more money in the long run. Plus, you could be liable if an accident or injury occurs on your premises, adding even more to the costs.
Verify Credentials and Permits
The first step to verifying an electrician’s expertise is to inquire about licenses and insurance. The next step is to verify these credentials and permits to ensure they are valid and current. A quality electrician will immediately provide documentation for customers to verify.
Talk to Several Electricians
After comparing reviews and verifying credentials, consult with several electricians to find the right one for the project. While all of them might be qualified for the job, homeowners should find an electrician that understands their vision and wants to work with them every step of the way. Take notes during the interviews to review and determine the best candidate for the job.
While qualifications are crucial to getting the job done correctly, homeowners must also stay within their budget to avoid financial stress associated with unexpected surprises. An electrician should provide a precise estimate and include everything to be done to complete the project for homeowners to plan for payment. The goal is to find a qualified electrician that provides all the services needed for the most competitive price.
Look for Outstanding Customer Service
Finally, it helps to work with electricians dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service and that stand behind their work. Inquire about warranties and other guarantees to verify the project will be completed according to specifications. Then choose the electrician who communicates clearly and makes you feel comfortable about their skills.
Hiring an electrician is often critical to getting the job done right and avoiding additional costs related to injuries and errors. Use this checklist to find a qualified electrician that provides outstanding service within your budget.
