Today we’d like to introduce you to Jose “Pepón” Gallegos.
Jose “Pepón”, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
After 23+ years of working for a Family Business in TV, Cinema and Sound Design, I decided to step out and follow my own dreams. The reason why I jumped into this new adventure is because I am facing a whole new challenge: both of my kids were diagnosed with Autism almost six years ago. This was my turning point to create a new business, where I could be CLOSER to them and to my WARRIOR wife.
I started with THE 1133 nonprofit organization committed to working hand in hand with DIVERSITY and INCLUSION projects so our children (My Warriors), and their generations, can have a better world than the one we are currently living in. THE 1133 is also a Creative and Public Relations (Connections) Company that works hand in hand with our CLIENTS, creating and producing content with emotion, with the H.I.L.L concept (Heart-Inclusion-Love-Laugh).
THE 1133 Group Corp was based in Santa Clarita, California since October 2017.
After some decisions and connecting with people under the same situation, I met Maria Bravo and we made a step forward joining together to a new project stronger than hers and mine and we called it THE BLUE AWAKENING based in Naperville, IL and Valladolid, Spain.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
A lot of struggles but we have faith that someday (very close we hope) we can find a sponsor that believes in what we are doing with the ASD community.
Please tell us about The Blue Awakening.
The Blue Awakening is a virtual platform formed by a community of Parents and Professionals that offer information and services for families with children or relatives of High Sensitivity usually diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), ADHD, Asperger or similar from a holistic view of the human BEING.
The Blue Awakening is a “Live” community, in constant Evolution and we Grow Together.
We understand other parents because their experience is ours, and from there we can help you; Following us in our social media they can connect with families from all over the world in the same situation, to share resources, experiences and understanding about what we are experiencing, individually, family and collectively.
We are in the design period of different VOD’s to help others through our YouTube Videos and web page.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I always say that there is NO bad luck… We are so lucky to be here, to breathe, being closed to the family… and especially to be the ears for hundreds of parents looking for answers.
