Who would have thought that a cum laude nursing graduate would end up selling beauty products instead of landing in a hospital to pursue his career in his chosen profession? And would eventually be a CEO of his own company at a very young age?
The Rising Dragon
Unable to find a nursing job after graduation, He joined a network marketing group instead but after two years, he did not earn much. Armed with perseverance and his learnings from this experience, and his realization of great opportunities in marketing, he jumped into another venture.
He got his first million selling contact lenses! And this was the start of his successful entrepreneurial journey. He had his share of business ventures which failed, but it never deterred him from pushing forward and looking for next opportunities.
Leo now directly oversees 50 employees and hundreds more in various industries, including beauty, resort and restaurant management, skincare services, and wellness. Ortiz also owns and runs The Oia-Santorini and Kai resorts as well as Elite Contact Lens, Gluta Spa, and Beauty Vault.
With his string of successes, Leo did not fail to give back to the community. He shares his blessings by outreach projects most especially during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
