From the Depths of Despair Grows a Love for Humanity and Helping Others

Vanessa Leto went from struggling to survive, to being a successful entrepreneur and mentor, by learning the hard way.

Miami - November 19, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Vanessa Leto has gone through a lifetime of struggles since growing up in South Gate, California. Her parents worked constantly to care for the family, but that left Vanessa and her siblings to their own devices. This led her to drugs and making reckless choices. It was not until finding a youth outreach program at a local church that things started to become clearer about the option of making more positive lifestyle choices.

While volunteering in this program, Vanessa changed her life. She became focused on networking and helping others who were walking similar paths to what she just left. It was also at this time she met her husband, Sal. After several years of being friends and dating, they wed in 2010, and welcomed two children over the next two years. The two high-risk pregnancies left Leto depressed due to overwhelming health complications, so Sal took a break from his job to tend to his wife and children. This is how working from home became a necessity for Leto and her husband.

During her recovery, and her husband took every opportunity they came across to make money from home to help them recover from their overwhelming debt. This allowed the Letos to network with others who were in similar situations, as well as those who used to be in that situation but found their way out. They learned from every mentor they encountered, and now run a successful mentorship and online lifestyle brand called FortifiedMind. Vanessa is proud of where she is today and loves how she has the ability to help others out of similar situations as she’s gone through.

About Vanessa Leto: Vanessa Leto is a mother of two beautiful children, wife, and successful entrepreneur. She balances her family life with her businesses, including FortifiedMind, a women’s empowerment community called WEB Tech, and her network of others in When Leto is not working, she can be found spending time with her husband and children, reading a good book, or exercising. She is currently studying for her private pilot’s license, and proving to others that she is ready to help. Instead of getting stressed out, Leto reminds her followers that life is stressful, but they need to trust the process, not solely focus on the destination. Her message to others is to follow those who have achieved the goals they have, so they can trust someone who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.

Dec 9, 2019

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend.

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Dec 9, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Dec 9, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month.

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Dec 9, 2019

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
