Aside from business savvy and the energy and attitude he possesses to be able to offer opportunities and help to others, Alfonso Cuadra passes along a positive message to any who are willing to hear it.

Born in the late seventies in El Salvador, a country on the road to revolution, Alfonso and his family couldn’t avoid the turmoil surrounding them. His mother was the head of a newspaper that remained committed to reporting the truth to all about the corrupt government in power. For that, she was arrested as a political prisoner and sentenced to forty years. For the first three years of her incarceration, Alfonso’s family kept him indoors for fear that the government would kidnap him. Thanks to an Amnesty Law declared in May of 1983, his mom, Vida Cuadra was freed and offered asylum in Canada. Alfonso was five when they first arrived. However, as a result of constant threats and scares from the El Salvadorian government, Alfonso and his mother were on the run once again. By the time he was nine, they were finally able to return to Canada and this time, it was to stay.

Life was a veritable struggle for Alfonso. Coming into a new country as an immigrant, he recalls feeling as though he was “very low on the economic scale.” Growing up, he was surrounded by crime and drugs. As he got old however, he created his own mantra, his own philosophy if you will. “Success By Design” the idea the we are all creating our lives.

I’m in my thirties and I’ve accomplished only 2% of my goals.

I decided to go against the grain. I always see opportunity where others see disaster. I was stereotyped because of my background, being an immigrant, being poor etc. But I believe there’s something wrong with that, with putting people down. I didn’t have any role models, so I had to believe in myself.
