Entrepreneur Tina Aldatz, founder of Foot Petalsand current CEO of Savvy Traveler, recently announced the nationwide release of her new autobiography. From Stilettos to the Stock Exchange details her life journey and heartwarming success story.
“As a child of domestic violence and a pediatric burn survivor, I have overcome many challenges in my life. But it wasn’t until I was embraced by the footwear industry, that I really felt like part of a community. I was welcomed with open arms and took the opportunity to turn my traumatic burn injury into an entrepreneurial success story,” Aldatz said. “Now it’s my turn to give back. I have committed a portion of the proceeds from my new autobiography, ‘From Stilettos to the Stock Exchange’ to the Two Ten Foundation’s ‘Women in the Footwear Industry’ (WIFI) program. Through supporting women, students and investors across America, I hope to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs to never give up on striving to make their dreams possible.”
From her foot injury, Tina created Foot Petals to help fill a gap in the market for women’s high-heeled foot support. Through her strength and tenacity, Foot Petals became a successful multi-million dollar company that was recognized by Inc. 500 as one of the “500 fastest growing companies in America”. Tina has also been featured in Forbes Magazine as an “entrepreneur to watch” and was honored to become the 2011 National Latina Business Women Association’s (NLBWA) “Business Woman of the Year.”
