Episode 12: Elizabeth Cordero – Be Satisfied with the Life You Have

Elizabeth Cordero has not traveled an easy road to success and financial security. Elizabeth grew up in Mexico as the youngest born to a single mother.

At the young age of 14, Elizabeth and her older sister successfully completed a dangerous border crossing into the United States.

Though she started her life in the U.S. with no worldly possessions no money for food and no ability to speak the language or even know the currency of this country, Elizabeth has overcome obstacles that would have caused many to give up — she has achieved financial security and established a multi-faceted set of business profit centers in the state of Utah, which range from a cleaning business to real estate sales, flipping homes, and investment activities. Elizabeth was able to buy her first home while she was undocumented which later become one of her most lucrative investments as unknowingly she was implementing one of the best investing principles of simple interest and paid off a few homes using this method even before being in the investing world.

Elizabeth’s first job in the U.S. was as a housekeeper at a hotel her mother used to work at and a bagger. After a number of these rapid-fire work experience for lack of documents to work in this country and not able to pursue an education for the same reason, Elizabeth began a new approach–as an entrepreneur. She launched Elizabeth Cleaning Services, a residential cleaning company that at first employed herself, her mom and sister, but quickly grew into a leading provider of residential cleaning for the Salt Lake metro area for 14 years. As this company grew, she launched another thriving cleaning service, Elizabeth Business Cleaning, to tap into the lucrative commercial business cleaning market.

Through her business success Elizabeth, who became a legal U.S. working resident shortly after the 2012 enactment of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, no longer needs to work to support herself.
