The Jessi Mendoza Show: Ep. 001- Mario Cantu: Adjusting to living in the U.S from Mexico

Download Link


I have learned so much from my friend Mario Cantu. He is very humble and a hard worker. He faced many challenges moving to the U.S from Mexico as a teenager but he overcame the adversity and it made him and his family stronger. We talk about what he did to overcome these challenges and how we can apply the lessons learned in our own lives.

I learned a lot about taking more action rather than dwelling on the challenge. Dwelling and constantly thinking about how bad you have it won’t change a thing unless you do something about it. Try different things and set a plan, dream big, because you really can achieve anything you want in life.

There is so much opportunity in this country and you have to go out there and get it even if it is uncomfortable and it takes a lot of hard work and patience to see the results. It is so worth it.

Never give up on your dreams and give it your all.


I hope you enjoy this episode and let me know what you think.
