"You cannot make something from nothing, you cannot be someone without working, you cannot go somewhere without without walking, and you cannot get something without paying. Point is YOU make success happen or not happen!" -FancyJ London

  • Teacher/English Professor/Translator

    at FYI Ingles Clases

    September 2007 - July 2014

    Estado de México

    Unfortunately we were not all blessed with enough money to go to college and learn valuable skills to be able to establish a secure economically stable future. Learning English as a second language in Mexico can increase your chances of receiving a work visa in the United States, or working in a tourist area where you can earn a much better salary. I work around your current schedule and with your income to teach you the skills you want to learn. Once you learn the course you will be ready to use these skills to open your own business, teach others or work in the U.S. with ease. Don't lose hope and never give up on bettering your future! http://westproenglish.yolasite.com

Services offered

  • Online English Classes for the Spanish Speaking

    English can be confusing for spanish speaking residents and harder when forced to learn in a place where not one person translates for you. I have lived between Mexico and the U.S. for 10 years and while I had the pleasure of meeting thousands of people, I also opened a trade school for lower income families to learn new skills. Many people in Mexico left their education to care for family members or to work as early as 12 years old to support their parents who were unable to work past the age of 40 due to the sad fact that companies in Mexico prefer workers between the ages of 18-24. This is another reason why so many Mexicans try to cross the U.S. border at such a young age. A lot of them do not know English and work low paying jobs because of the lack of communication. This is why I offer online English courses for the Spanish Speaker.

  • Album Booklets, Cover art, Logo design

    Your album artwork is important, just as if not more important than your music! Why? When an individual goes to purchase an unknown album or single they are first attracted to the color and design of the cover, that is a natural human reaction being that we are visually stimulated more than any other senses we carry. So if that is the case you need an artist creative eye popping visual monster of a cover! I just happen to offer you all that and more. Let me turn your next dream cover into a reality.

  • Social Media Management for *Musical Artists

    Talented unsigned independent musicians, singers, and bands know first hand how hard it is to get their music heard. When you have little presence that can be harder than it looks. Artists out there just like you have the same goal as you do. What you need is something that will set you apart from the rest. As the CEO & Founder of Featured Stars and being a Recording Artist/Singer-Songwriter/Performer myself, I can assure you that I understand what it takes, the extremely long hours in the recording studio, the practice, the interviews, the photoshoots, the performances, the dreaded rehearsals...I could go on and on. The point is you NEED a manager you can't be ten people in one. I offer social media management to help you focus more on your music and less on the trivial.

My featured artists professionals rage from entrepreneurs, musicians, artists, photographers, to spoken word poets, actors, and authors. Everyone has a story, your story should be heard.
