Become Self Made with Nely Galan
Nely Galán is a quintessential maker: She is a Latina media mogul, an entrepreneur, a teacher, a speaker, an Emmy Award-winning producer, and an advocate for gender parity. Above all, she is SELF MADE. Dubbed the “Tropical Tycoon” by The New York Times Magazine, Galán is one of the entertainment industry’s savviest influencers. Galán, a Cuban immigrant, worked her way up to become the President of Entertainment at Telemundo Network. Throughout her career, Galán produced over 700 episodes of television in English and Spanish. Galán was also the first Latina ever to appear on “Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump” on NBC—showing on national television that a multi-cultural woman’s place is in the boardroom. After becoming self-made on her own terms, Galán has made it her mission to teach women—regardless of age or background—how they too can become entrepreneurs. Her forthcoming book, SELF MADE: Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant, and Rich in Every Way, will be published by Spiegel & Grau/Random House in April 2016. Inspired by the new revolution in women’s entrepreneurship led by multicultural women, Galán wrote the book as a manifesto to ignite the SELF MADE movement, uniting all women on a quest for an economic future they control. SELF MADE is a blueprint and a mindset, but most of all it is a call to rise up and take ownership in ways big and small.
You do not have to look up the ladder to find the self-made woman—you simply have to look around. She is everywhere. From the part-time Lyft driver to the Etsy store owner, to the unrelenting startup CEO, the one thing all of these women have in common is that they are becoming self-made. SELF MADE is for every woman with untapped greatness in her, who just needs the tools to get started.
