Inspiring Men at JAFRA

We celebrate these father figures!

The man that taught you how to ride your bike, makes the world’s best chile con queso, and never lets you win at chess, Loteria or MarioKart. This month reminds us of those special moments in our lives. Whether it’s a brother, father, husband, or friend, we opened the invitation to JAFRA Consultants to share their father figures. Whether you are a dad, have a dad, or know a dad, take a moment to celebrate them and we will honor them with you.
 
Let’s celebrate these male pillars in our JAFRA family:

“For some reason in life, my upbringing was without my parents. I had the best brother by my side though. Since I started elementary school, my brother was the one who provided my school supplies, clothes, shoes, and food. He stopped studying and started working so that I could study. I owe everything I am now to him. I remember when I was missing a pencil or notebook, I would arrive at the pharmacy where he worked, and his boss would tell him to give me the pencils and notebooks from their lost and found. I love my brother and I bless his life. He’s a super brother!”

“This is my grandfather and the man who raised me. His father was a sharecropper in Arkansas, and he rose to be a Doctor of Divinity. I remember Papa always having a mind for business and new endeavors. He was a driven individual with a commanding presence and authority respected by all. I wish he could see me pursuing my own dreams. I followed him into the ministry; got my Doctorate like him and I am working hard to follow my dreams just like he did.”

“This is him on SOFTBALL, the magazine, playing in World Senior Games. He was only 65 then. Now he is 80 and registered for the 2021 games in St. George, Utah. He just finished a three-day tournament in Reno this week. He pitches, plays Catcher and 1st Base.   
Great JAFRA dads. Mine's the greatest!  Kelly Dutton!  I love, admire, respect, and thank you for your love, support, strength and endurance with me on my JAFRA journey! "Where's my Royal Jelly?" That was his comment after he tried out the lead product of my new venture. Reasons why he is the best: 
1.  He sat in the truck, with 9 of our 10 children, pulling a horse trailer, and waited from 10:00-12:00 midnight, as we were moving to Monroe for his promotion to manager for US West, while I was issued my JAFRA case. 
2.  He smiled as he assisted me on stage at JAFRA's award ceremonies to help present me with awards. 
3.  He supported me doing classes while raising the children and called it, ‘You're out’.  
4.  He made JAFRA deliveries for me. I rode with him on the back of his motorcycle, for one out of town delivery. We were run over by 3 head of deer and escaped with only minor scrapes and bruises to us and the cycle. 
5. 60 plus years of marriage, 13 children, years of enjoying JAFRA products and JAFRA friends and JAFRA scholarships for some of the children, 2 beautiful trips with JAFRA to Hawaii and he is still the greatest dad and greatest JAFRA dad!”

“Here is the story of my dad... someone so very special to so many people! 
He was known as Austin, Bub, Boston Bob and Dad, who lived at Nichols Quarters. He was a hard worker, who knew dairy farming at a young age, growing up in Pepperell, Massachusetts. He loved what he did. He was a true entrepreneur at heart. From his love of all animals, and love of nature, his skill at baseball, passion for fishing, to his adventure of homesteading in Alaska in the early 50’s. He carried those traits with him for years to come. 
He was a fair, humble, kind man. One who provided for his family by working shift work at Everett Plywood Company in Washington State by day or night and managed his 40+ acre farm in between. In other words, he never sat down until mealtime. He was extremely talented in so many areas. A carpenter by trade, building whatever was needed. He had an eye for invention, and creativity to see a job through. He was highly respected, a man of his word, honest, and a wonderful provider for his family and community. He made a ‘mean’ pot of spaghetti, not letting anyone in the kitchen, and would not tell anyone his ‘secret sauce’ ingredients. On the 4th of July, his favorite treat was strawberry shortcake which was heaped high on his plate. I marveled at how he could pack that away. Vacations were a family affair, and we usually went camping in our local National Parks. But the work had to get done first before anything else. His motto: Take care of the farm first and then you could rest. 
He was a man of few words, but a processor, and when he had words of wisdom to say… everyone listened. It always amazed me that he was such a whiz at math. He was planning and figuring the best way to construct whatever project was next on his list of ‘to do’s’. The carpenter pencil and piece of whatever paper he could get his hand on was carried in the breast pocket of his red plaid flannel fishing shirt. He always had time to listen, processed what you said and had a sound response. Looking back at this now, I can see why he had so many ‘good friends’. They came to him for advice, to visit and just to hear one of his jokes or stories. His sense of humor was infectious.  
His words of wisdom: ‘Always take care of what you have. You may not have a lot of money, but what you own, take excellent care of it and make everything around you look neat and tidy!’  Words I remember to this day. Thank you, DAD, I love you… and you are missed bunches.”

“The influential man in my life is my son, Ivan M Matos. I feel privileged and immensely grateful to God for my children. Ivansito, he is an extremely affectionate, respectful, responsible man, detail-oriented and most importantly, he loves God. In his role as son, husband and father he is a blessing. Thank you, JAFRA for letting me use this platform to say, ‘I BLESS MY SON, HE IS THE MAN OF MY LIFE.’”

“The man who inspires me so much to continue at JAFRA is my husband. His name is Roberto Uribe, he has always been my support since I started offering JAFRA products. He is a good husband, father and son.”

“Ever since I was a young girl, I looked at how my dad found ways to provide us with the best. He always told me that we must place all of our interest in whatever it is that we’d like to achieve. He was always looking for opportunities where he could grow. Since he didn’t study and was a farm worker, he went to the city to be able to provide the best for his family. My dad told me that it had been his dream to go to the city. That’s why I believe that if one has dreams, one can achieve them.”
 

Inspiring Women at JAFRA

We Celebrate these Female Pillars

"The mother is the first teacher of the child. The message she gives that child, that child gives to the world." - Malcolm X

 The significant impact of maternal figures in our lives cannot be denied. Women are born nurturers, have innate seemingly magical abilities, and are full of unparalleled strength. Through love and support, our mothers help us navigate uncharted waters and unknown territories.
The amazing women that comprise the body of JAFRA have been molded and raised by mothers from many walks of life. Their diversity is a celebration of strength and compassion. JAFRA would not be the company it is today if not for these strong women - and those that raised them. Mothers are warriors, and today we honor them. In spirit of this upcoming Mother’s Day, we celebrate the following female pillars that have positively shaped and impacted these JAFRA Independent Consultants.

Ana Gonzalez
My mom has had a very positive impact on my life. She’s taught me to be a hardworking entrepreneurial woman and to do everything with great passion and love.

From a very young age, I’ve seen her work hard to get ahead. She was left a widow when I was 12 years old and, despite the difficult circumstances that she had to face with 4 children living in Mexico, I never heard her say we don't have or we can't. Instead she said, “we will always get ahead,” with a smile on her face! Now that I’m an adult with my own children, I understand that sometimes we didn’t have and sometimes she couldn’t do what we asked of her but she taught me that you always have to try everything possible before saying, “I can’t.” She is an example of strength and unconditional love.

Elen Pantoja
She is a warrior woman that fortune didn’t bless with biological motherhood. Life took her sister at an early age, leaving her 6 children to care for. The years passed and she lost her brother and soon after her mother, leaving her alone with her 23 nieces and nephews, whom she cared for as her own children. In July 2020, she was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed away two months later. She was like a mother to me and she taught me that until the last moment one must fight for what she wants and inspired me to move forward and fight for my dreams.

My mom was beautiful, determined, persevering, strong but at the same time loving. I always saw her working, she never stopped ... and although she only studied until 3rd grade, she always believed in herself, always attentive and smiling with everyone, she loved sales and always achieved her goals. I liked to go to our living room and look at that huge trophy that had her name engraved in gold letters LETICIA RAMOS recognized as the # 1 in sales in the state. I longed to be like her! My mom, taught me that there are no limits when you want to achieve something with all your heart. As I write about her, my eyes fill with tears. She passed on, but I carry her in my heart as my most beautiful inspiration.

My Mother, a woman, an example to follow. A strong warrior! She never gave up in the face of life's adversities. Through her I learned to stand up for myself, to move forward, achieve my goals and to never give up. With great pride I can say that I am the legacy of my mother!

Nancy Silvestre
The values ​​that she taught us since we were children still inform how we live today. I consider her an impressive woman--I call her a "wonder woman" because she always instilled in us to get ahead based on academics, with sacrifices, being responsible and achieving our goals. She is a hard worker, fighter, full of life and energy, disciplined and faithful. As an orphan, my mother had to work hard from a young age and overcame many adversities, giving her great strength of character. When she wants to achieve something, she does NOT give in. She’s very positive and loves to learn something new every day. She loves her family, plants and she is an excellent cook. As a result of the health crisis, she learned to use technology to communicate with us since we live in the US, and she also learned more recipes! My mother is my coach and she encourages me all the time. She loves to travel and, thanks to my sister and niece, she got to know Europe. She is an extraordinary woman, she is unique and is loved and admired by her family and people who know her.

Claudia E. Cabrera
Hello, my name is Claudia E. Cabrera, JAFRA supervisor. I have been with the company for 25 years, and my best inspiration has always been my mother, currently she is a level II District Director. I practically grew up on JAFRA creams and perfumes. She taught me to love the product, to have a beauty routine from a young age, to share this business with everyone and that the best therapy for all kinds of situations, difficult times or good times, is the work we have. I am currently a supervisor at JAFRA and I am my mother's (María Elena Cabrera) secretary. It is a true pride to be able to share with you that the respect and love that I feel for this company today I owe totally to my mother.

Honoring Black History at JAFRA

Inspired by a weeklong historical celebration that Carter G. Woodson developed in 1926, Black History Month has become an annual recognition of the achievements and contributions from the African American community and their central role in American history.   
 
As a company that has been around for 65 years, our consultants are rich in American History. In honor of Black History Month and to make sure this important message stays with us long after February, JAFRA has the distinct pleasure of sharing stories from two Independent Beauty Consultants with an amazing history.  

Chafica: A Woman with Wellness in her DNA  
Chafica Miles comes from a family of strong women; Her mom is the first African American female pharmacist in Springfield, Massachusetts and her sister is a breast cancer survivor. Rounding out this fierce trio is Chafica herself - a warrior with two open heart surgeries in her past. Through her family's experiences, Chafica has learned just how important self-care is and found JAFRA to be the perfect opportunity to share her knowledge and self-care-skills with others—and we’re so glad she found us!  

As Chafica states in her interview with Erica Mathews Whether you are reconnecting with your friends, family, or just yourself... here are some self-care tips to help you slow down and be intentional.  

  1. Create your own personal oasis 
  1. Enlighten your mind  
  1. Give yourself a daily dose of laughter 
  1. Mix up your day with music 
  1. Dare to do you 
  1. Smile and pay it forward 

Chafica lives by the motto: "self-care is the best way to start and end your day." She’s an important part of our JAFRA family and historyjoining us nearly 30 years ago in 1992. Thank you, Chafica for being a constant inspiration to the JAFRA community and a wellness advocate for everyone. 

Mentory: A Woman part of American and JAFRA History
Mentory Braggs was living in Detroit in 1963, in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's visit to the city. At the impressionable age of 13, Mentory recalls getting dressed in her Sunday best to attend a march where a crowd of over 100,000 first heard the famous "I have a dream" speech.  At the time she didn't recognize the impact that this event, or speech, would have on history. It was a moment in time that Mentory said she will always remember as she was so proud to be part of the nation's largest movement at the time.  

As Mentory reminisced about this day she said, "History lives on". She watched her two sons walk in the 50th anniversary march in Detroit in 2013, and she and her sons have participated in recent BLM marches. It is hard to believe that the same fight is needed many decades later, but the perseverance and determination of trailblazers like Mentory will continue on until justice and equality are achieved. Not only is she part of our American history, but she’s part of our JAFRA history as well. Joined in November 1979, Mentory has also been a leader in her JAFRA business, expanding her team with a District Director 2 title. Thank you, Mentoryfor being an admirable individual within JAFRA and in your community!  

Some journeys to self-care and awareness are inspired close to home, while others have a much more public beginning. In either case, these inspired and inspiring women have certainly created a legacy of love for the self and others that will live on through their actions and their families... What a beautiful way to celebrate Black History Month
