Webhead founder Gonzalez, a role model for women and minorities in the tech industry
As Janie Martinez Gonzalez grew up, she watched her mother set up tables in flea markets to earn the family money by selling gloves and bracelets, like the ones Madonna wore, or nunchucks, when the karate was popular – anything that would sell.
“It was really cool to learn from her and watch her work – take $ 20 and make $ 200. And for us, $ 200 was a lot, ”Gonzalez said. “One of the things I saw right away was that my mom was very smart and the company told her her job was just to be a housewife and raise kids. And I was already prepared for it.
