We had the good fortune of connecting with Olivia Leon and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Olivia, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
I was very consistent and disciplined. I work hard and harder everyday. I knew I was no the best doing it, but I knew that if I keep practicing I will be good one day. I was just about being patient and organiced.

I force my self to wake up early and sleep early, in order to have my mind clear and full of enery to learn more

Some might think that success is difficult, but actually its easy when you love what you do.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What I think people love the most in Olivia cerámica is the mixture of the tradicional Clay, and the contemporary design.

We creates pieces for the everydays rituals , And all of them are made and design to leave the smaller carbon footprint.
We reduce, re-use and recycle in every way possible.

The most difficult challenge was to believe in my self and silence my fears of failing. When you acomplish that, you keep going and bacame good at it. You gain confidence. Then people start to look at you.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
