about our services
Lorena Ivel Mauro
| Buenos Aires - Argentina
For a long time, I wanted to dedicate myself to developing a project to enhance the resources of the pharmaceutical industries. During 2020, I looked for someone who could advise me and I found Alejandra and Julieta.
We quickly did a kick-off session and set goals. In 7 sessions I learned how to design my future business aligned with my purpose of promoting access to health and wellness.
During the 7 sessions, we worked on objectives, on processes, on segmenting them and monetizing them (of which I had no idea). I acquired many tools that helped me to project my consultancy as I dreamed it.
Today I am already in the design phase and I was able to let go of the fear of undertaking, to set a kick off in 2021.
The program was hard work, super productive, totally personalized and humanized and above all very effective.
Thank you Ale and Juli for the precious time you have dedicated to me and all the learning you have given me.

I decided to do a mentoring session with Julieta because I was following her brand Design Junkie and it struck me that her mentoring approach was aimed at people interested in creating businesses with purpose. I am in the process of developing an accessories brand and had a lot of questions. Julieta helped me to clarify my doubts and gave me ideas about the next steps I should take to turn my ideas into reality.
After the mentorship, she sent me an email summarizing everything we had discussed and giving me recommendations and other materials that might be useful to me.
I really recommend Julieta if you have a business idea and you are looking for a person with a lot of marketing knowledge to guide you in the right direction.
Suyana Zero Waste
| Quito, Ecuador
My experience in the mentoring session with Julieta and Alejandra was like psychological therapy for purposeful entrepreneurs.
After doing Julieta’s courses at Domestika, where I have learned lots of resources to improve and establish my Suyana Zero Waste brand, I still had questions about how to develop my communication for my triple impact business. For this reason, I took a personal advice. The session with these two geniuses was a game changer, because now I can see my brand clearly.
They opened up a new horizon of possibilities to improve what I really needed and now I feel that my actions can reinforce, even more, the purpose of my brand.

I am very happy with the mentoring program that I carried out with Alejandra. I had been developing my business for some time, but I felt that I was progressing without a clear direction. Her proposal was very revealing, deep and fruitful. I was able to affirmed concepts, discovered ideas and resolved my confusion and uncertainties to strengthen my business.
It was a great challenge due to the times of pandemic we are living in, but she gave me options not to stop and encouraged me to continue.
I greatly appreciate her passion, enthusiasm and knowledge. Everything she have created with Julieta is truly incredible, I hope they reach many entrepreneurs of sustainable brands.

My life’s focus has been dedicated to studying, practicing, and serving others. However, I had very little knowledge about how to be an entrepreneur. I sought Julieta and Alejandra’s professional advice at a transitional time when I was looking for assistance with how to create a structure for my heart-centered psychotherapy, mindfulness, and Forest Therapy®️ practice.
Working with both of them in the Mentorship Program has been tremendously informative and empowering. Not only have I learned how to structure a portfolio of services but also how to create a triple impact with the vision of my work.
Alejandra and Julieta are very generous and passionate about what they do, going above and beyond in sharing their knowledge and ideas. In every interaction, you can feel that they want you to succeed, and they do their best to support you. I will definitely continue to work with Alejandra and Julieta, and I would recommend their mentorship sessions to anyone without hesitation.
Consultation of Psychologist Sandra Idri
| Tenerife, Canarias, España
My experience with Alejandra and Julia was very productive. I was surprised by how much, in such a short time, I received feedback to restructure my Psychology consultation. I had to face the new reality from COVID-19, economically, socially and psychologically and both helped me to create new strategies for my safe walking in my business.

I made the decision to start a Julieta Tello´s course at Domestika “Brand strategies on Instagram”. During the course she mentioned the possibility of mentoring sessions, and I said to myself: “Why not? I’m going to consult with trained people with good experience. I wrote to @thecuriousbeetle, we scheduled day and time, the video call was very interesting , I was attentive to every word, we had fun and from that moment it was an awakening for me. I will recognize it, be exposed (they took me out of my comfort zone), there where fear paralyzes. But you know what? I took the advice of them, tools and I was able to rethink myself, look at me from other paths to see how my project was. I am constantly changing paradigms, I am more critical and rational when it comes to defining content. But what makes me most proud is that we have a Mission !! In our case, the planet is going to be planted with more trees, with schools from the region. We have a mission, it fills us with pride !! For all this and more I want to thank them !! The Curious Beetle is highly recommendable !! Greetings from someone who has made you a better person.

I loved the mentoring session! Ale and Juli are fabulous. I am working on turning a hobby into a business and they opened my eyes wide so that I am on the right path. They patiently guided and educated me on how to map myself and have an achievable goal. I did not know where to start and thanks to them I already know exactly what the next steps are for my project. I am very happy and safe since I have an organized project.
Thanks Ale and Juli!
| Barcelona, España
My session with Alejandra was encouraging and revealing. She combines a marketing expertise with a close and generous way of communicating, that made the mentoring session very useful and highly recommended. She gave me many ideas and proposals to implement in my business, with a very direct and effective approach. After the mentoring, she sent me a written document with the most important of the session and other new information. ¡She likes her job and does it very well! Now it is my turn to work and probably later I will do another mentoring soon. ¡Thank you very much!
| Quito, Ecuador
“It’s been 4 years since I created my brand MyChicaMundi, which is inspired in travels and women’s empowerment. The truth is I had no idea where to start and how to give my brand sense
and value for the public. When I met Julieta thanks to a Doméstika course,her marketing concepts with a purpose caught my attention, and I contacted her for a mentoring session, where I also met Alejandra. They have both been my mentors in the recent months and have helped with my ideas and concepts regarding business trends, sustainable traveling, women’s empowerment and finance topics to make my project possible. I am very grateful since I consider them my official mentors at the moment and I highly recommend their work, they offer easy to understand solutions to reshape your ideas and make your dream become true.”

“Being part of the Endeavor Experience Buenos Aires was incredible!
It is amazing to find people like Alejandra who transformed their professional career to bet on the entrepreneurial world with social and ecological impact.
Her mentor talk on “How to launch a brand with a positive impact” was very inspiring and interesting. Alejandra spreads a lot of passion and enthusiasm.”
“When I was starting my brand, I had the opportunity to do a mentoring session with Alejandra and Julieta . It was really useful talk to them to clarify my doubts. Both gave me a lot of ideas and clarified many issues regarding my business.
Julieta & Alejandra clearly understood my issues and they we able to easily put themselves in the shoes of those who are starting. They are very encouraging and creative and gave me the push I needed, explaining everything I wanted to know and giving me examples of everything. Very enriching for anyone who is starting a new project.”

| Cali, Bogotá
“At a transitional time in my life and business, I approached the Curious Beetle for an hour mentoring session to gain some advice and support on how to build my small localized business into an online brand with global reach. In just an hour of mentoring we covered so many aspects – all relevant to the specifics of my business. I received feedback on what I had built so far which was both direct and constructive. Julieta and Alejandra make a really great team – their style and approach was different but very complimentary, meaning they both picked up on slightly different things which meant I got even more from the session. Overall it felt like a great ‘power hour’ – I left with some invaluable advice, strategy and inspiration and I felt positive, reflective and focused on how to grow and direct my business in it’s next phase”
Carlos J. Mucha
| Buenos Aires, AR
“I met Alejandra, in a mentorship she offered in Endeavor Experience Buenos Aires. I was impressed, not only by the way she communicated her knowledge in marketing but also how she spread her values.
For me, the real engine in everything you do is the PASSION and Alejandra did it directly from there and makes us think and reflect that there is something beyond “business“. If we all make a small contribution with our work, the sum of our efforts will be a huge positive social and environmental impact for our planet.
We need more awareness in our actions, and actions with real PURPOSE.”
“Julieta and Alejandra are the perfect combination of knowledge, experience, professionalism balanced with warmth and closeness. The mentoring I had with them was intense and very productive. They made me think and rethink many things, always in a very present, assertive and supportive way. Thank you for putting your time and experience at our service. You are an outstanding team.”
Zenda nueva – Vegan Food
| Buenos Aires, AR
“I met Alejandra last year in the ENDEAVOR Experience BsAs. Although I was a bit lost due to the amount of information I was trying to absorb, I was impressed by the passion she put into her presentation. The desire that she transmitted to me, the passion for what she does, her love to help and give services is what made me value the day. I have a small vegan food company “Zenda Nueva” and Alejandra clarified me many concepts of product launches and marketing that I found extremely useful.”
Solo Buenas Vibras
| Antigua, GT
“I found Julieta at a time when I was setting course to launch my own fashion brand in Guatemala. Her expertise in guiding my social presence through tips on brand alignment, photography and even narrative, that would really add to my online social and Instagram presence, was a true asset to building the company I have today. Julieta’s experience in marketing and her passion for what she does is reflected in her own brand Design Junkie, and in her work with clients. She continues to be a great supporter of my brand and someone I would turn to for advice and guidance. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a strong and experienced voice to guide you through building your social presence and/or brand.”

“The Curious Beetle’s advice has been beneficial to select the product portfolio according to a specific image. Their in-depth analysis has helped us map our Brand positioning. Thanks!”
Florence de Montfort
| Lucerne, CH
“I have asked for support from Julieta to help me with the brand positioning of Buyion. She quickly understood the brand spirit I wanted to create and was able to articulate clear values [that] I need to always keep in mind when making decisions for my business. The work she put together is a great starting point for making sure our brand values are easily understood by our customers.”
El Costurero de Maryló
| Santiago de Chile, CL
“Positioning on social media is setting the tone today among entrepreneurs and it is important to learn how to relate to your public. In this sense, Julieta’s advice really helped me to focus on my public; how to captivate them with a corporate image and a message that reflects the spirit and fundamentals of our business. It was a very useful and practical call.”
Inhara Ortiz Toledo
| London, UK
“As a start up business, it was very important to understand and have a good sense of direction as a brand. The brand positioning exercise that I did with Julieta enabled me to visualise where AMATE was and where I wanted it to be. It also gave me the tools to understand the context of the industry, and work towards building the brand I envisioned.”
Marziyeh Eslamparasti and Fatemeh Ghafourian
“It was our first experience to talk with Julieta and actually, it was one of the best. Since she is experienced in this field and has touched on every issue in the textile business, she was able to guide us with useful information. All in all, we do not see this conversation just as a one-hour consultancy but also as a long-term connection between our business and hers.”
Blue Highways Trading Company
| California, USA
“As a long-time admirer of the Design Junkie brand, I was excited to have the opportunity to talk with Julieta! During our hour-long one-on-one mentoring call, she guided me through the process of thinking about my business in a new way, defining the direction of my brand and zeroing in on the purpose that will drive my business going forward. We went over my list of questions and she answered them and pointed out areas to work on that I had not even thought of. I have always hoped to develop my business into one that involves travel and working directly with artisans, but needed some help to clarify my next steps. I am happy to say that I will be traveling to Mexico this month, a trip that is a result of the direction and motivation I took away from my mentoring session with Julieta.”

Advertising freelancers – Digital nomads
| México DF, MX
“My husband and I have been traveling for a year and a half, working as freelancers and thinking about starting a business online. We had a coaching session with Julieta that helped us get a wide vision of what it would involve to get in business with local artisans, who create ethnic textiles and decorations. She gave us a lot of information to consider before starting and a panorama of how we should approach this entrepreneurship.”
| Cabo Santo | México DF, MX
“Working with Julieta and Alejandra was very useful for me to be able to start my brand project. Because when one is starting out as an entrepreneur the truth is, not only do you have many doubts and nerves, but you also do not know where to start. The guidance that I received from them was excellent, complete and, above all, it helped me to understand the first steps that come with the adventure of this new project, and got me excited to keep going forward with it. Thank you ladies!“
| Sausalito, California, US
“I am so glad I found Julieta when I first started my business, Intrinsic Flair. Julieta really helped me fine tune my mission statement which incorporated my personality, the things I care about and what I really believe in. This really set the foundation for going forward with my business. Additionally, Julieta has been so supportive and so accessible. She really cares about what she does for a living. I highly recommend Julieta if you are thinking about starting a shop!”
| Frankfurt. DE
“Julieta’s extensive marketing background and her willingness to support others looking to set up a sustainable and socially responsible business have been a great inspiration and motivation for me. She is positive and encouraging and clearly speaks from many years of experience. I am very grateful for her advice.”
Karina & Karla Arteaga
| Milton Keynes, UK
“The Curious Beatle facilitated our business consultancy project kickoff. They walked us patiently through their startup experience and recommended us a practical path to follow. When being in the corporate world for a long time, one tends to pick up projects at a large scale, so stepping back and thinking of our small business from its inception steps was a challenge. The Curious Beetle made a great contribution on overcoming it. Thank you for giving us that little shake and push we all need to get started!”
| Califormia, US.
“I had a lovely Skype session this morning with Julieta as a mentor. She is friendly, upbeat & has a wealth of knowledge. I found her advice and insight about social enterprises to be very helpful and inspiring. She gives many detailed examples when explaining and can fit a lot of information into one hour. She really helped me understand the logistics of small-scale importing with artisans and lightened the fear and confusion. I will definitely be booking another Skype session with her in the future when I have a more developed business account on Instagram!”

“When you connect with authenticity, the service received is perfect. It may take thousands of forms, but since the base is the truth, the result will always be fair and necessary for the other. In this sense, Julieta flows with generosity and authenticity, allowing her to respond with flexibility and efficiency. Her professionalism combined with her values creates a combination that is demonstrated in her services: They are reliable and make you feel self-sustained. Her commitment is to remain loyal to herself, and this loyalty is transmitted into all she delivers. She helps to empower any entrepreneur, in a real and convincing manner, to be able to sustain themselves and move forward with confidence.”
| London, UK
“I sought advice from Julieta at a time when my business was just beginning and I was trying to form a strong brand message but was overwhelmed with all the different ideas I wanted to incorporate. I needed a fresh perspective from someone else and Julieta was perfect. She is so knowledgeable in the field, and so open and friendly in her manner, that it was a pleasure to work with her. She understood exactly what it was I was trying to achieve and helped me simplify and clarify my vision for Kurma. With her help, I was able to really focus on what the key messages of my brand are. Following our meeting I have a clear idea of what I need to do next to get my business to the next step and she has given me the tools to achieve that. I plan to meet with her at crucial points along the development of my business. She is incredibly genuine and authentic, but also not afraid to tell the truth which is vital when starting a business. I would highly recommend Julieta as a consultant for any stage of business growth.”
