Meet Our Top 35: Yolanda Machado of Sassy Mama in LA

For the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing you to our #WeAllGrow Summit Top 35. ¿Qué es eso? It’s a special group of blogueras that believed so much in #WeAllGrow Summit, that they jumped on the opportunity to grab a very specially discounted ticket within hours of our announcement. Because of their commitment and passion, we celebrate them now in a series of small, yet passion-filled, interviews. Check them all out here.

  Yolanda is the editor and owner of Sassy Mama in LA, a lifestyle blog for the modern Latina mom. There you can find entertainment, style, technology, product reviews and  much more. Find out what Yolanda has to say about growth within a community.


1.What does the word "Grow" mean to you in your blogging career?

For me, to "grow" means to thrive and be successful which involves constant learning, changing, and excelling. To grow is to become even greater than you are today and it's something that I love to see not just personally but as a community.

2.What excites you about growth?

Everything! It's the excitement of new, of achievements gained and new goals to attain. It's those butterflies in your belly telling you... this is going to be great!

3.How can one community grow together?

Supporting each other within the community is key to growing together. I have been beyond blessed to have made some amazing friends in our community and each one of them is a superstar. We don't compete or pull each other down, we celebrate each other and support each other 100%.

4.How do you proactively help others grow?

I try to help out anyone who asks questions or befriend new people every chance I get. I remember being new and scared in this realm, but I found a great community who were there to help and answer any questions I had so I try to do the same now.

5.What do you hope to get out of #WeAllGrow Summit?

I hope to connect with new people, inspire others and to be inspired. My life has been changed so much just by being part of this amazing community of blogueras that just being surrounded by them will be an experience to remember.
