Recognizing the need to save struggling independent retailers during the economic downturn, Angel developed a training method for growing business regardless of size, skills or resources. The platform proved to be successful and out of that grew Tenant Mentorship, a recognized and effective method for improving small tenant performance and retention on behalf of commercial landlords.
Her diverse career provided the background and skills for this new thanks to decades of successfully growing business both as an entrepreneur and a corporate executive.
Angel owned and ran a top advertising agency in South Florida for over a decade before launching Women's Business Journal, a monthly newspaper for executive women in business. As Managing Director of the South Florida Business Journal and Associate Publisher of LUXE Living magazine, she fine-tuned her revenue generating skills by leading the publication to double-digit revenue increases annually through creative new business development techniques and strategic partnerships. Later, she was tapped by the Business Journal's parent company, the largest publisher of metropolitan business journals in the country, to create new revenue opportunities for its forty-one papers in the United States.
An active speaker and seminar leader, Angel conducts workshops and talks throughout the country and has spoken at various ICSC events and was invited to be a faculty member at ICSC University.
She is the recipient of over 200 local, regional and national awards for creative excellence and business ownership.
