69: Using Your Passion to Support Your Community with Roxana Rodriguez


Are you inspired by passionate, dedicated, and committed individuals that support your community?

In today’s episode, I am joined by Leading Lady Ambassador, Roxana Rodriguez, and she is all that and more!

Roxana Rodriguez is the owner of Caliente Grill in Annapolis, one of our family’s favorite restaurants. She is also the owner of American Postal, so she is a serial entrepreneur. Roxana is constantly getting out there, starting businesses, helping others start businesses, and getting involved to provide support to the community. 

She believes that building a strong relationship with her community by supporting school fundraising, class presentations, special events, local organizations, sports clubs, and partnerships with other local small businesses is a commitment and a great way for her to contribute back to the success of the community.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Celebrating and sharing our culture
  • Supporting other small businesses
  • Ways to share resources to support your community
  • How to stay connected to the community
  • Surrounding yourself with people you admire
  • Why you need to keep learning to reach your goal

I feel so blessed to be in the same community as Roxana because I get to experience her selflessness and passion for supporting others. Even during the pandemic, Roxana stepped up even when she was having a hard time with her own business.

We all need to remember what Roxana says: if you’re passionate about something, do it with your authentic self, and don’t forget to smile!

If you are in the Annapolis area, I highly recommend heading into Caliente! You just can’t beat the food, culture, and community there. If you are not in Annapolis, I encourage you to learn more about how you can get involved to support your community.
