We had the good fortune of connecting with Diego Montemayor and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Diego, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
The single most important decision that contributed to my success was deciding not to work for myself only, but for my community. Deciding to work and devote all of myself to the community was a greater mission, a positive mission, something that would bring success even if I avoided it. A good, positive mission will always bring success, success in many ways.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Chamba App was born as a result of unemployment and a terrible pandemic. We saw our community losing their jobs, not being able to bring food to the table and on top of that, many of them didn’t receive any help from our local or federal government. Immigrants got hit hard. This is what sets us apart, we endured the pandemic because of our mission – to help the community find jobs through Chamba App as well as employers find talented workers in their community. They key to succeed is to keep pushing, even in adverse times, to have a positive mindset and to work for a greater cause than the self.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take my friend to the mountains, that’s gotta be the first stop! It would work like a cleansing from all worries and stress. After that, we would go to eat amazing Mexican food at 3 Margaritas and definitely have a couple of their mezcal margs. As it gets dark, the next stop would be Happy Camper, get some more food and then go to Avanti for a couple of great views and drinks. If the friend is a dancer we would end up at Blue Ice dancing some Latin music. I recommend these places to anyone visiting Denver.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to thank my co-founder and my entire Chamba App team for believing and sharing the same mission, which is to help our community find jobs. They deserve credit because they have made this possible. We owe lots of credit to our community as well because they have believed in us and continue to do so. I would like to also thank our mentors and supporters because with their experience, the Chamba App team can grow and become better leaders to our community. Family & friends were key to this success.
