Podcast 513: Giselle Gonzales: Building A Career By Sharing The Stories Of The World
Its with total delight that I get to bring on today’s guest entrepreneur to the top rated business podcast interview show Join Up Dots.
She is a professional traveller, part-time writer, part-time book seller, part-time model, and full-time adventurer.
She lives for the experiences that create a life that is a wow, and quite simply it seems to me wont settle for what life simply gives her.
Instead she wants to take what is right for her.
But I suppose at her core, its not just about what’s right for her but also what is right for the ladies of the world.
Yes, she is super passionate about empowering young women in marganilized communities and I love experiencing and sharing new cultures with others.
In fact just recently she was asked to join a small research team for a group called The Syrian Circle and spent the last month travelling across Europe (from Greece to Germany) to document stories of refugees, locals, and volunteers across the region .
The second part of her team’s mission was to meet with leaders in each country to better understand the situation, the needs in each region, and how people can specifically respond and advocate for refugees.
So you can see this is not your normal lady, who is seeking to climb up the corpartae ladder as quickly as she can.
As she says on her blog “Shes got big dreams and a curiosity to see, hear, and explore the world around me.”
So what was it about a life of adventurer, and assisting the marginalised that so appealed to her?
And of course where does she see all this activity heading towards, as its great to be a lady on a mission, but ultimately none of us escape from the day to day living expenses?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Giselle Gonzales
During The Show We Discussed Such Weighty Subjects With Giselle Gonzales Such As:
How in 2012 she visited Kenya, and knew deep with her heart that her life was never going to be the same again.
How she had the motto that if you follow your heart and your passion then the money will come to you. You just need to persist with the same path until it arrives.
How with the use of technology we can all find new and exciting ways to break down boundaries, and bringing positivity to the world.
Why her family was very concerned with her plans to travel around Europe, and understandably would have preferred her to remain where she was.
