Like so many of us, Kaprice Dal Cerro is busy starting her Second Act. Reinvention is a common thread amongst many of us in midlife and Kaprice is no exception.
She is busy building her business as a Business Mentor who focuses on guiding entrepreneurial women to take action and build a solid foundation to grow a profitable business.
Kaprice doesn’t let a number dictate what she’s going after or conquering. She feels like she’s 20 still and pursues her passion relentlessly. Please help me welcome Kaprice to our Sunday, Share Your Story series.
KUELLIFE: What are you pursuing now, at this stage of your life, that surprises you or might appear to others as if it comes out of left field?
KAPRICE: Currently I am building my own business. I don’t think it surprised me or appears to be in left field it is just my passion and I’m happy to be able to help women in their journey.
KUELLIFE: What’s a typical day like for you?
KAPRICE: A typical day starts at 5:00 am for me. I begin work right away, checking emails, and social media. I like to get that stuff out of the way and then move on to getting focused on what my daily tasks are and planning out my daily timeline.
KUELLIFE: With what do you struggle?
“I sometimes put too many things on daily task list”
KAPRICE: I struggle with not getting everything completed that I would like to. The day always goes by quicker than I like it to, and I have to admit I sometimes put too many things on daily task list. I need to take down my superwomen powers a tad.
KUELLIFE: How do you motivate yourself and stay motivated?
KAPRICE: I refuse to not be motivated. I stay motivated by allowing myself to continue to grow and knowing that I am able to help others achieve their dreams and goals. This sparks my energy every day.
KUELLIFE: What advice would you give fellow women about aging?
KAPRICE: Age is just a number. Allow yourself to be who you want to be. There is no magic age that should hold you back from doing the things you love and dream about. Live your life. I still feel like I’m in my 20’s and I often have to remind myself that I’m not. I seriously have to think about how old I am sometimes. I think the only real reminder of my age is that my kids are older.
KUELLIFE: What does vulnerability mean to you? What has the ability to make you vulnerable?
“the only thing that can make you vulnerable is yourself”
KAPRICE: Vulnerability is something that I have had to let in the last few years in order to take the next step in my journey. I feel we have been taught that vulnerability means that you are weak. Once I let that mindset go I was able to let in some amazing information from those that I trusted and start the next chapter of my life. I feel the only thing that can make you vulnerable is yourself. Vulnerability now means strength for me. It provides me the tools I need to move forward and be honest with myself.
KUELLIFE: What are three events that helped to shape your life?
KAPRICE: Three events that helped shaped my life are having my 3 children, my son being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, and starting my own business.
KUELLIFE: Who influenced you the most in life and why?
KAPRICE: I believe my children have had the most influence in my life. My children asking me questions when they were young and the questions being so honest and sincere really got me thinking about things differently. It was a great eye opener.
KUELLIFE: What is the best advice you’ve been given from another woman?
KAPRICE: The best advice I have gotten from another women is to tune out all the stuff from everyone else and just be you.
KUELLIFE: What woman inspires you and why?
KAPRICE: There are so many women that inspire me; it’s hard to choose just one. The woman that inspires me is the woman that takes action of her own life and lives it the way she always dreamt it to be. The woman who is willing to take chances and is willing to help others along the way.
KUELLIFE: Are you grown-up?
KAPRICE: Hell no! I’m not all grown up. What fun would that be?
KUELLIFE: What do you do for self-care?
KAPRICE: For self-care I make sure that I take “me” time each day for at least one hour. This is free from work, kids, house stuff, etc. I also make sure I read each day for 15 minutes. Reading helps clear my mind and open my mind up for news ideas to flow.
KUELLIFE: And last but definitely NOT least: What are the top three things on your bucket list?
KAPRICE: Top three things on my bucket list are: 1) to visit all of my friends all over the world, 2) to build my dream home, 3) to zip line (even though I am terribly afraid of heights).
