I'm Blanca Vergara
I'm a woman on a mission: accelerate the emergence of the Heart Centered Economy
I am an entrepreneur, writer and speaker. I empower intelligent women to unleash their power, so that they become the leaders of a more human and humane economy, and live their full potential of contribution and joy.
I'm Blanca. I created this website to remind women how powerful and perfect they are. This website is for smart women like you, who have so much talent and potential, yet at times emotions overcome you and sabotage you from being the happiest and the most impactful you. If total self-reinvention is calling you, you are in the right place. Whether it’s transitioning from a corporate career into entrepreneurship or finally finding love, my services are based on decades of personal and professional experience, enabling my clients to create lives that continually bring them fulfillment, impact and joy beyond their expectation.
We, women live under the illusion that we are not good enough and don't deserve more (power, money or love). This is our heritage of centuries of patriarchal culture. This illusion leads to all kinds of trouble for women, especially to those like you who are meant to lead. Consider the following consequences,
- Suppress our feminine qualities and be tougher than men (work hard, don't ask for help...)
- Put up with bad treatment from other (accepting one night stands, boss asking for unattainable goals...)
- Compete with other women (criticizing, gossiping, bullying...)
- Minimizing ourselves (not asking for the raise, undercharging, not setting your own company,...) to be a "good girl" (modest, nice, accepted, loved...)
- Your body shouts NO (eating disorders, infertility, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc.)
We feel trapped. Yet this trap has a door. It is an illusion. When we finally see it, we are able to get out of it.

My vision and mission
I have a dream: the heart centered economy. I see business becoming a force for good. I have a vision of a more human and humane economy, inclusive and compassionate. I see it already emerging. Diversity, sustainability, inclusion, social responsibility have become something more than empty words. More and more companies care for the future of humanity.
My mission is to accelerate this trend: to empower 1 million women to become role models of compassionate and collaborative power. You and I have inherited (from our mothers, fathers, and cultures) many painful and non-supportive beliefs. Let me help you break the chain and start living a new story today.
Over the past eleven years I reinvented myself from an unhappy corporate “success” into heart centered mompreneur - but my real quest is just beginning. To give you a sense of my story, I list here my those life changing experiences that allow me to truly empathize with you. In no particular order,
- Worked in male dominated industries
- Managed millions of euros and dozens of people (many men)
- Toastmaster founder, president, champion
- Bullied at school
- Having neither children nor husband at 35 year old
- Transition from corporate world to entrepreneurial world
- MBA, MSc in IT, Coaching Certificate
- Being a mom of two
- Bullied at work
- Worked globally
- Being a step mom
- Sexually abused
- Near death experience

Here you have my story in more detail
From Compliance to My Signature Life
I was the poster child of the “women to the top movement”. At 35 I was the most senior woman in my company. My IT background and my MBA allowed me to manage millions of euros and dozens of people. My peers were all men in their 50’s. I was the only Mexican in a European environment. The company treated me well: car, bonuses, trainings and much more. I was the picture of success, or wasn’t I?
There was absolutely nothing else in my life than my work (and you know, I didn’t even like it). I had no relationship with my parents or my sister. I was so desperate to have love in my life that I had an infinite number of disastrous relationships. I drank heavily. My health was a disaster. My PMS seemed perpetual.
One day I woke up
Don’t worry! I didn’t have cancer or a car crash. It was just a sudden Sunday morning realization that I couldn’t shake. I had reached to the top of that ladder, just to realize that it was against the wrong wall.
I didn’t know what I wanted. I didn’t know where to start. I just knew that a radical change needed to happen. I chose to invest in my self-love and my whole life changed.
In a split second that job disappeared together with the last bad boyfriend. Before I knew it I was running in the Vondelpark on a lovely Wednesday morning. I had no job, no pay check, no relationship, no car. I had nothing to lose.
I knew I wanted love in my life and meaning in my work. With those two criteria I started to make choices that lead me to where I’m today. Today I’m an award winning women mentor, a mother of two and a wife. My relationship with my entire family is profound and loving. My health and vitality are the highest ever. Most importantly, I like who I see in the mirror.
The one experience that wakes me up every morning and reminds me of my mission is being mother of another woman.
Magali is just 5 now, yet I can see those leadership skills, intelligence and ambition. However, she, just like any other young woman, is starting to repeat the patterns of behavior she sees.
Look at the picture! Need I say more?
Role models are needed! It's urgent to remind many women they are perfect. Magali is watching.
It's your time
Are you where I used to be: disenchanted with their career, questioning their worth and longing for love and true joy.
Here is my hand. Through my free content, my paid training programs, books, retreats and anything else I might offer – I want to make the difference in your life. I want to help you build a life that you truly love, fully tailored by you.
Whether you are looking to make a big change in your personal life or in your career (maybe start or grow your business), I’m here to help you to heal those nagging fears and tap into your deepest wisdom.
If you are hungry for change (even if scared), let's have a conversation.
If this resonates with you, I would love to get to know you better. I hope this is just the beginning of our relationship. The best way to stay connected is to make sure you join my tribe.
Most of the time, you’ll only hear from me on Tuesdays’ more if something is time-sensitive.
Plus, you’ll get a fantastic (and free) video training called,
Play Real Big
Truly Thrive as a Female Leader
It will walk you through the biological blockages that are limiting your performance and how to conquer them. Can’t wait for you to listen.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. I’m thrilled we’re connected and I’m excited for the journey ahead.
To your brilliance,
Don't take my word for it
Blanca truly is one of those light-bringing people who lead us to the new world we all dream of, inspiring and in the meantime giving us the courage to do the same !!
To experience the deep ageless spiritual wisdom of the Aztecs, being brought together in a warm, sparkling, inspiring, strong and also very successful businesswoman is a present I wish everyone who wants to live and work from his heart should grant him or herself. Blanca truly is one of those light-bringing people who lead us to the new world we all dream of, inspiring and in the meantime giving us the courage to do the same !!
She has the knowledge, the capacity and the communication skills to engage people and help them, giving them tools to navigate this complex and volatile world we live in. Professionals who are not willing to give up happiness because of career choices or simply people who want to become more aware of couple dynamics, communication dynamics and personal growth will most certainly benefit from her workshop. Really Recommended! [And she is also funny!]
Blanca learned me to shift my old wrong believes and guided me to spread the word of love and universal laws to the new dimension in my business. I fully recommend Blanca as a business coach! Iva www.bohemianinspiration.nl www.ivaschubart.com
Blanca is listening for the gold. Through all the dirt she can see the gold in a person.
Blanca comes from possibility. You can feel that she's been where you've been and break through it. With only her being she inspires me to be big, proud and go for it. You can feel that she's mastered what she is saying.
Blanca believes in herself and therefore believes in you and your possibilities.
Blanca gives concrete steps that sound logical, but ones that you never thought before because you are too close and attached to your own company.
The Power Session with Blanca is a refreshing experience that helps me as an artist to take myself seriously and go for it!
I feel the coaching has been transformational and really met my needs. It has helped in building a toolbox of changing my mindset that I can use in everyday life. I received a good balance of encouragement, honesty and being pushed to challenge myself. It has been a great learning experience. I really love the way Blanca conducts herself and lives very true to her values and her core. Having that presence in my life made a big difference. Before the coaching, I was more willing to listen to others and less kind to understanding what my needs were. This has been a big learning curve for me as I’ve started to make a shift and listening to my core values. It also has helped in feeling encouraged to continue on my life path and also encouraging others too. I think the other thing that has really helped is that I now see the time in each moment, such that it’s helping me realize that I can make different choices and building this muscle is part of my journey. The coaching has also helped me to tap into my higher self and realize I can change my life path. Thanks Blanca!
It was an eye-opener! I feel lucky that I have the opportunity to attend this workshop. Really good for couples, careers and your personal development.
If anyone can coach people to do this (build the heart centered economy) she can.
I was drawn to Blanca's warmth and enthusiasm the first time I met her. She really does have the energy to make a difference in the world. Her ideal is a heart-centred economy - every leader loving what they do and having respect for their staff.
If anyone can coach people to do this she can. She has the right mix of out-of-the-box ideas and encouragement.
In life, you meet many people but only very few have the power to change your life.
Blanca has this power, and this is maybe because she does what she likes to do in life, and she does it very well. Only in one hour, I saw her touching the heart of more than one person, all with different backgrounds, nationalities, and ages.
Whether you work for a company or have your own business, there is a lot you can learn from Blanca.
She is such an inspirational and intelligent woman, that I consider myself lucky that she crossed into my life.
Blanca is so good you should say it twice. Your slightly American tone is a refreshing oasis in this sometimes dry ''Doe normal" desert. I work intuitively and very intensively, often feeling like I'm bull dozing over people with my enthusiasm and creative insights ... so it was such a relief to meet eye to eye with someone riding the wave with me. Respect. Our relatively short consultation had big implications. Immediately layers effortlessly dropped away ... this onion was peeled. I felt an immediate trust and allowed Blanca to witness my heart felt fears and wishes. During our contact, there was such an immediacy that the "now" was made tactile, to the point that I experienced an energetic reality shift. BLANCA WAS THE GOOD WITCH THAT HELD UP THE MIRROR AND SAID "HERE IS YOUR ROLE MODEL". I'm sure she has connections to the star ship enterprise.
May The Force Be With You Blanca and all the women warriors.
Love from Sarah Kate Gardiner
Blanca is exciting and challenging. She gets to the core of the issue and offers insight, options, and priorities. She is generous with her expertise and knowledge to help people move forward in integrity and productivity. I highly recommend her to anyone anywhere running a business.
I am truly thankful to have come across Blanca, who has a wonderful way to pull things into clarity and guide you through your own process of understanding. Her session was insightful, warm, fun and touch the right note in a serious yet light way. I would recommend anyone who's looking for a creative way to open up and lighten up to contact Blanca, now, no, yesterday!
Blanca is an excellent presenter. She's enthusiastic about everything, I mean everything. She has good and bad experiences which make the suggestions complete and with a solid background. She's extremely engaging. This workshop is extremely useful for young students, nowadays a lot of students travel and naturally they are or end up in couples. And they have to deal with it. Blanca did not give answers, but tools for tackling the shared life and the decision making.
It has been an absolute privilege to meet Blanca and learn from her knowledge and experiences. I can recommend Blanca for anyone who wants to reconnect to their dreams, pursue them and to be successful in that. She provides you with the tools how to be a better you. Because: dreaming is good, doing is better!
Don’t let her pass by without catching it.
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that LITTLE extra. That is Blanca , a woman with an extraordinary talent and aptitude to speak to others. It’s nothing enormous about her, just a little twist making a full modification. She’s not just another inspirational speaker and coach, it’s that extra that makes her reach into your heart giving you the strength to move the next mountain.
Blanca has a self-confident attitude that can be contagious. Don’t let her pass by without catching it.
You literally inspired me and tapped something inside me. Your workshop was enriching for the heart, the mind and the body. Your energy is radiating and I lived the positive vibe. I salute you for the courage and confidence to dream of a better you and contribute to a better world and I can only be inspired to reflect at myself and aim for a better me!
You and your story, the combinations, are incredibly inspiring and life changing. Thank you!
What strikes me the most was her natural way of presentation. The women standing there is really Blanca. Blanca was not telling us about just another (role) model, theory or technique. No, her message is based on personal experience, common sense and life itself. It is coming from her inside, her hart. This makes is so strong. Because of that she really knows how to touch people and get people into action. She is different and she knows how to make a difference.
