Fabulous Female – Betty Galvan

This month’s Fabulous Female is Betty Galvan. Betty is a business owner, and Work at Home Mom to three very active boys. Yes, THREE! I’ve known Betty for a few years, and she’s been a constant source of motivation and inspiration for me.

Betty hails from Chicago, but has lived in Asia and NYC. For the last 8 years she’s been a NJ resident. Betty has led an exciting life, starting with moving to Tokyo, where she had her first son Diego. While she holds a degree in teaching, and taught at an International School, after having Diego, she felt it was best for her to stay at home.

While in Tokyo, Betty started blogging so she could keep her friends and family updated on her family’s progress. Little did she know that would eventually formulate in her own lifestyle blog “My Friend Betty Says”. Betty’s blog primarily focused on educational tips for how to raise bilingual children, as well as lifestyle and fashion ideas.

While blogging she was fortunate enough to connect, and freelance, with Ana Flores. Ana is the founder, and CEO, of the former Latina Bloggers Connect now WeAllGrow Latina Network. Ana was so impressed, that she hired Betty to work for her.

Betty was fortunate to connect with likeminded women, and #solopreneurs, while working at LBC. From Boston to LA, the women collaborated, motivated, inspired each other and exchanged ideas. It was a true sisterhood. When LBC took a turn focusing more on bringing women all over the US together, with annual conferences and summits, Betty knew she had to step back. She didn’t want to be away from her family so much. Betty also realized, while on her journey with LBC, that there were local business owners that needed help with their digital marketing strategies, social media managements and content creation.

Always forward thinking, Betty decided to keep the name of her blog @MyFriendBettySays and add Digital Marketing Studio to her resume, in the summer of 2017. Since making that decision, Betty has been helping others to increase and grow their business. She currently has two employees and will continue to expand.


When I asked Betty to tell me her secret for being so fabulous, she was humble as usual. She did tell me that she takes one hour of the day for herself. Whether it’s getting her nails done or going to the gym, that time is for her. Working from home has its advantages, so she’s able to tailor her schedule to that of her active children. She also has a very supportive husband and a cleaning lady!
