Carlos Vides


Carlos comes to our Prevail family with an amazing spirit and engaging personality. Carlos was born in Honduras and migrated to the United States as a teenager completely on his own. Through hard work and determination, Carlos taught himself English and successfully progressed into a professional career path. Today, Carlos draws on his life experiences when he shares his amazing story as a motivational speaker. 

Through his two distinct careers, Carlos became a fixture in the Kansas City Hispanic community, building relationships through his support of small business owners and families. Carlos’ career in Kansas City started in direct to consumer sales where he earned top performance awards, was promoted to sales manager and consistently built long-term relationships over a cumulative 14 years.  When the opportunity presented itself, Carlos transferred his sales and customer service talents to a career in the financial services industry, advancing from an advisor position to a marketing development consultant at New York Life.

Carlos is a member of the National Speakers Association and a highly engaged member of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. He specifically enjoys mentoring and supporting the professional development of young adults. When Carlos is not out in the community, he can be found watching his two teenage daughters perform at Irish Feis competitions around the country. Carlos, his wife Michelle, and their daughters proudly call Raymore, Missouri home.
