Spotlight Series: Meet Passion & Body Positivity Coach Gabrielle Garofalo

1. Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a Passion & Body Positivity Coach teaching women and girls how to live their passions every day at home, in career/school and in the mirror to learn to live unapologetically self-expressed.

2. What was your first job and how did you get it?

First ever?? Hostess at a restaurant called Nana's. It was through one of my father's client who was an attorney for the owner.

3. How did you decide and get to your career today ?

Life & career coaching is my 8th career and it chose me. I discovered that I wanted to teach women and girls how to live freely self-expressed and to ditch the confines that our families, society, friends and culture create and get back to living our passions daily! By doing so everything else falls beautifully into place. I'm living proof of it!

4. What advice would you have given your younger self? Or what is the best career advice you have ever received?

Never stop listening to your heart - follow your passions. Learn and fail fast. Don't stay in a job you hate unless it's absolutely critical. Work folks are not always your friend - gravitate toward mentors you trust and inspire you. My best career advice is "You can do anything."

5. In 5 years, where do you hope to be professionally and personally?

WOW!  Healthy and happy. My family thriving and my personal life beautifully curated with tons of travel. Wonderfully rich experiences with those I love and enjoy. Professionally, I hope to have grown my coaching business beyond my wildest dreams allowing me to retire my marketing career and help women worldwide live passion-first. I hope I provide deep value to my clients and help change the course of women and girls' lives by teaching them how to love themselves completely AS IS at a young age - no matter their circumstance. I hope in five years I am continuing to live joyfully in the present with a level of financial security and freedom that allows me to do whatever I want, whenever I want and provide the same for those I love.

Stay connected with Gabrielle!
