Meet the Educators

John Daniel Flores “Johnny D.”

What would your 10-year-old self think about what you do for a living?

He would not understand why I am not playing 2nd base in the MLB.

What’s the first thing you buy when you win the lotto?

Definitely hire a financial advisor, an accountant, an investment broker, and a lawyer!

Is there something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?

A native American sweat lodge. I have not done this because they typically take place at a coming of age ceremony for girls, and I only know a handful of natives that would allow me to join. I’ve been asked to attend but timing has been a conflict.

What, besides money, do you never have enough of?

Besides money, I never have enough time, but the only way around utilizing time is to utilize others time, employees, teams, etc. Create and maintain a common goal in a community and a lot can get accomplished.

If you had to replace your hands with something other than hooks or claws, what would it be?

I’d have a bazooka on the left because you could blow up some cool stuff, and probably be contracted by the government to save the world. And my right side would have bionic hand because I saw one in a movie, and it seemed pretty tight to crush just about anything.

Alexis Rivera “Chinno”

If you could choose another profession, what would it be and why?

A tailor. The work involves measurements, shapes, precision, discipline and SHEARS!

Are you more of a “work to live” or “live to work” type of person?

I have been known as a “live to work” type of person. I never work a day of my life. I am active seven days a week doing what I love. Any work activities are related to the beauty industry.

What would your 10-year-old self think about what you do for a living?

At 10 years old I dreamed of owning a business and traveling, I didn’t know then what profession, however, I have accomplished my dream and I am grateful for all the people that have helped along the way.

What, besides money, do you never have enough of?

I would never have enough education. When you stop learning you stop growing. Education is everything and comes in many forms, including video, books, conversations and practice.

If you could play a song every time you enter a room, what would it be and why?

Trophies by Drake! I don’t expect to get credit for what I do; my passion is not fueled by money or recognition. My passion comes from a fire inside of me, and my #1 goal is making my family proud.

Daniel “Danny” Tran

What would your 10-year-old self-think about what you do for a living

10-year-old me would think what I do for a living is supercool as I work for myself, dress as I want, listen to music (that I like), get to meet cool people and chat about interesting things and, above all, have a great time while working!

Are you more of a “work to live” or “live to work” type of person?

I would say both. I work to support my lifestyle, which helps me achieve and do things that I like to do (work to live) but also feel a sense of duty to people that I consider friends of mine and a sense of serving others in my line of work as a calling for me (live to work).

What’s your go-to guilty pleasure?

Surfing the web for random facts and information. I’m not really sure how I can start out researching what is microwave safe and finish hours later discovering that emus love to eat grapes.

Who would play you in a movie about your life?

He would have to be someone that’s considered a young handsome heartthrob, and I’d definitely have to give my approval first.

If you could choose a different profession, what would it be?

I’d be a salsa dancer/instructor as that’s something I have much fun doing and have met so many great people when I find places to dance when I travel.
