From an article in the Latino Times:
Throughout Marina's business career, it was never about "getting ahead" or "what's in it for me", it was more about raising others to achieve their potential greatness, which Marina has done with ease.
For many, being a business leader in the community has had different meanings, but to Marina, it is in her motto, "it's YOUR dream, make it happen" and with this she guides, educates, and introduces local, and at times not so local, small and large businesses to each other so everyone grows, learns and builds together.
Her guidance is given to many, from financial advice (from her years of experience in the banking industry) to learning how to properly reach out to the community, or hire the right candidate for a job position (via the Job Fairs). Marina's position, as the Lodi Chamber of Commerce's Membership Director, is not a job but a way of life. She tends to "work" non-stop for the community, which means her day is by far NOT a 9-5. She is always there for ALL her members. Whether they call or email her after hours, she is there to guide them and help them in any way she can. You might find Marina at local events spreading the word about the chamber or setting up meetings between businesses.
Like most women, Marina wears different shoes for different occasions. She is not only the Director of Membership, she is also the underlining talent scout for all of her events. Marina has brought the Multi-Cultural Bazaar to our community for the past few years. Bringing several cultures together and showcasing their businesses through food, crafts and dance.
Her dedication, passion and hard work to the Lodi Chamber, the Ambassador Committee and Hispanic Business committee, Marina has educated this community through numerous events; Business Tools for Success, Lunch and Learns and much more. While she teaches all businesses small and large, Marina also provides a unique and personal touch to these businesses when it comes to celebrating their Ribbon Cutting, Anniversaries or Grand Openings.
Most businesses operate during the day in a brick and mortar store front. Either downtown School Street, Heritage District or off Lower Sacramento Street however, on occasion, a home based business will join the Lodi Chamber and with the respect Marina never waivers from the importance of their business in the community, their needs to connect with other industries and potential clients, and the education to grow their dream.
Marina Narvarte is a CATALYST for your business growths, your INFLUENCERS to lead and together WE ARE a CHAMPION for our COMMUNITY. Marina had said it many times, if you're given a TASK you do it and do it more because you can; not because you have to.
