eatmexico“I called Marcela seeking direction on a few book ideas I’d been pondering. I was hesitant at first—how much advice could she offer me, when I barely had these ideas on paper?—but it ended up being the best thing I could have ever done. After our 60-minute chat, I felt much more clear-headed about which idea I may want to focus on, and what my next steps should be from here. Best of all, I hung up the phone feeling confident. Marcela let me know that my dream was real and reachable, with just a little more hard work. She inspired me and I can’t thank her enough.”—Lesley Téllez, author of Eat Mexico
