Enterate: Everything about the dinner. | About Verizon
Hello ! In today’s episode of Enterate con Verizon, host Diana Alvear had a lot of great stories to share, so let’s go!
How well informed do you feel about your finances? If you’re feeling a little shaky, Diana has the perfect expert for you. Marco Antonio Regil is a television host, podcast host and speaker. One of his passions is teaching financial literacy lessons that he himself learned the hard way:
“Money gives you the ability to choose what to do and what not to do,” said Marco. “So money is not happiness, but it creates the space that takes away the burden of having to do something you don’t like.”
Marco spoke about the four ways to make money: as an employee, self-employed, business owner or investor. He went on to suggest that the first step is to find something that you enjoy doing, and then that it is important to “find a way to leverage and create something that is going to make you money even if you don’t. not physically work for it. ”
One of the ways Verizon helps you teach your kids about financial health is with Verizon Family Money. We caught up with V Teamer Lillian Vasquez, Account Manager in Consumer Channel Management, to see how it was helping her family.
Lillian explained that her eight-year-old daughter wanted to save for an expensive Apple Pencil, but wasn’t keen on doing chores because she never got paid right after she was done. With Family Money, she always sees her payment hit her account immediately. “So the motivation to be able to look and see how much money she has and how much money she needs, definitely keeps her motivated every day to try to achieve that goal,” she said.
Lillian recommends that all parents get Family Money to show kids the value of financial literacy.
Verizon Visa Card
While we are talking about money, the rewards of the Verizon Visa card are improving. It’s the only card that allows cardholders to earn Verizon dollars, which can be redeemed for the best phones, 5G technology, and even applied to your monthly wireless bill. And now cardholders can spend their rewards on even more of the things they love outside of Verizon, like favorite brand gift cards, hotels, flights, and car rentals.
Tips from La Tienda
Co-host and solutions specialist Chris Estrada-Ballesteros of Lady Lake, Fla. Shared some tips on today’s topic: games.
When it comes to must-have gaming accessories, Chis recommends the JBL Quantum 400 gaming headset. It features lightweight construction, a braided cable to prevent tangles, a mic that mutes when you pull it up and down, and memory foam cushions for extra comfort during longer sessions. This headset will really change your game.
Chris also recommends Razr’s super ergonomic Kishi game controller, which turns your phone into a game console. The buttons are both familiar and super comfortable. It works with Android, iOS and all cloud based services. So if you have the Xbox Game Pass, Apple Arcade, or the Google Play Pass, you will be able to elevate your game from your phone wherever you want.

Superpower AV Teamer: be bilingual
Diana introduced us to three Verizon Business Group teammates who take care of small business clients with Fios: Omar Galarza, Julliane Abramson and Mayra Rosario.
Omar, an Application Support Engineer, explained why he became a member of this team: “I wanted to help the Spanish business community have some kind of voice at Verizon, and I also wanted it to be. easy for customers to do business with us. I mean what better way than to call somewhere and have your language of choice.
Service representative Julliane told the story of a customer who bought Business Digital Voice from a door-to-door salesperson, but then struggled with the language barrier. “They were happy with the product, but they didn’t understand what they had bought, so when the call came in and they got my recording, they were like, ‘Oh my God, you speak Spanish!’ I explained everything and they were, like, thank you very much. They were more than grateful.
Corporate Sales Manager Karen Ratigan described how the bilingual call center team was put together with the help of volunteers. Nine people volunteered initially and they continue to take calls with a level of excitement you can hear on the phone.
Julliane summed it up: “This is what Verizon is all about. To be able to provide our customers with the best possible experience. “
Thanks to Omar, Julliane, Mayra and Karen for all you do!
V Teamer Profile: Ricardo Aspiazu
Ricardo Aspiazu is the executive director of creative marketing at Verizon. He is originally from Ecuador, came to the United States at the age of 18, completed a masters program in Spain, and now lives in New York City.
Ricardo was working at a Hispanic marketing agency when one of his Verizon clients asked him if he would come in to fill a vacant position. Just like that, he was a V Teamer.
Advancing the cause of the LGBTQ community has always been important to Ricardo, especially when he discovered that the stories that were covered the most tended to focus on white males. “There is a huge, neglected African-American LGBT community, young people, Hispanics, not to mention the transgender community as well. So we were, okay, we have to find stories about these people. “
Ricardo’s advice to young workers is to really work to get to know yourself and your desires, even if it means taking risks. “The last thing you want to be is a professional in your 40s who doesn’t really know what you want. It’s okay to be that person in your twenties and thirties. Follow your gut, and even if it makes you uncomfortable, take the plunge and do it.
