Feeling it is the key to flourishing in your life,
career or business !!!
Yearning to have more joy, fulfillment, and freedom in your career or business?
You're in the right place if:
Desire to see how you can use your various passions and gifts in ways that truly light you up.
You’ve taken steps to shift into a more meaningful and purposeful career, but you’re not getting your expected or desired results.
Thinking about starting a business and need some guidance or you already have a business, but it's just not lighting you up.
You want to stop second guessing yourself, shrinking, or playing small.
Navigate the overwhelm, stress, uncertainty, guilt, fear and other feelings that naturally come when you’re healing, learning and growing, with more ease.
Ready to release the pressure of being ten times better just to prove you’re worthy of being in your particular role and field, and the expectations that come with being one of a few if not the only.
Let go of the regret for past career choices and wondering if it’s too late.
With the best intentions and efforts, you’ll feel stuck and/or blocked at some point in your exploration.
This is a normal part of the journey that is a great opportunity to learn and grow, even if it doesn’t always feel that way. With the right help and support your journey to having a career or business that truly lights you up will be a game changing one. Yes, having clear, healthy goals along with a path and plan to achieve them is important. You look at that, but first and foremost you need to uncover and resolve why you feel stuck and/or blocked, with a compassionate heart.
Allowing you to:
Explore what you truly want. Most of us were raised with the expectation that we choose a career that allows us to make a “good living” and to stay with that career until “retirement.” Because you evolve and change, wanting to pursue your various passions can feel like a tug of war between your dreams and desires, and the messages you’ve internalized from family, friends, society, and culture about success. Now is an opportunity to uncover new interests and/or reawaken dormant ones that were put on the back burner in favor of another profession. So you can clearly and confidently identify the work you really want to do.
Give yourself permission to go for more. Ambition is something that women, especially Black & Brown Women, have been taught to fear, courtesy of the negative connotations historically associated with ambitious women. Specifically, career ambition is erroneously thought to be the antithesis of having happy, healthy life. So there’s a lot of pressure to “settle” and/or play small instead of going for more.
Letting go of meeting others’ expectations and judgments. The biggest source of the pressures, the stresses, and the burnout that you experience comes from trying to be “strong” in meeting others’ expectations. It also comes from maintaining that same strength in dealing work challenges, health issues, and relationship changes. On this journey, you’re questioning what really matters, the type of life that you want to lead, the type of impact that you desire to have, and the legacy that you want to leave for others to benefit from.
All of this will feel challenging, unsettling, and exciting.
Being able to compassionately and courageously name and navigate your feelings allows you to explore what you truly want in your career or business. It will allow you to look at the things that are holding you back and those that are helping you. You will experience emotional ups and downs doing this work.
However, you don’t need to go it alone. That’s what I’m here for to help and support you through it. I know first hand the challenges first hand the challenges of being a woman of color: entering the forties feeling discontent in her career, and struggling to feel truly seen, heard, understood, and supported. I have successfully helped others, who felt like you are feeling, uncover their true desires and use what they have to create a more meaningful and purposeful career.

What Client's Are Saying
“Working with Gigi I learned a new way to center myself and set several personal and professional goals!”
"I started first working with Gigi in fall of 2018. She was very patient, generous of her time, and gave good advice with me. I now have a job! A full-time job with benefits as a contractor to an organization that I am proud to be associated with. One would do well to follow her advice and suggestions."
"Please KNOW how much you have helped and are helping…how you touch someone’s life by a word, a moment, an action, a prayer…can be life-changing to that person. You may not even know the impact you had…but even a kind word, gesture, acknowledgment of someone can bring them out of their fog, even for a moment long enough to see that there is sunshine and clarity, so don’t give up. "
"Gigi was instrumental in helping me to stay aware of my power and influence. The exercises helped me to focus and plan for greater success in the future."
