Nina Vaca chooses not to live by profit alone, but this does not mean that she does not work. Vaca has forged ahead to create one of the most recognizable female-owned businesses in the world. She created Pinnacle Group, which matches employers with employees. The company took off, but not without a lot of dedication and hard work. The business is now flourishing, but Vaca wanted to do more. She did not want to sit back, so she started to give her time, and as we all know, time is one of the most precious commodities.

Vaca created the Nina Vaca Foundation, and she uses it as a tool to promote other women and children. She saw that kids needed to learn technology skills to get many of the jobs available today, and she noticed that lower-income families did not have access to a lot of the technology that other students did. It makes sense because in low-income neighborhoods, property taxes are not as high, and property taxes fund the schools in those districts. Vaca began providing computers to parents who could not afford them so they could better help their students succeed.  She also raised millions in scholarship funds and her company is now an industry sponsor to a program that provides students with the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an associates degree at the same time at no cost to the families.

Vaca has developed the ability to see problems as possibilities. Each situation can be solved or overcome with connections or education. She used her talents to become an entrepreneur, and when she could have finally relaxed, she decided to work to help others instead.
