What better way to start your summer than with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce!
Mateo Guzman was born in Mexico City in 1964, and raised in Celaya, Guanajuato. Mateo comes from a big family that has been supporting him with his music since the age of 8 years old. His first experience singing was as a member of a choir and his continuous participation at school festivals. He was also the director of the school choir at the age of 10 years old. He was the director for five years and left at the age of 15 years old because he would travel a lot to sing in front of big audiences. He still remembers when he would sing with his grandma at the age of 8 years old and would be playing the guitar.

Business Tip Of The Month
The process and mechanics of budgeting vary by organization. Generally, budgeting consists of the following three phases:
Evaluate your revenue position.
Ask yourself a few simple questions. Who are your customers? Who is your competition? What economic or technological changes are occurring that may affect your revenue? After careful consideration of these facts, you can establish your revenue goals.
- Understand your business’ cost structure.
You must recognize what costs are incurred in a year and separate them into variable and fixed costs. Then ask yourself, are there unusual, nonrecurring costs which should be anticipated? From this point on all costs should be estimated based on the volume of business activity planned.
