Gabrielle Hayes As Cover Story – September 2023 Edition
How do you introduce yourself?
Hi! I am Gabrielle Hayes, a renaissance woman who believes everything is figureoutable. I pride myself on professionally being a Product Career Empowerment Expert and personally being a mom, a wife, a healer.
Childhood to Adulthood – How was your transition from childhood to adulthood and what are the bad and good things you remember?
Throughout my life, I have frequently rushed to the next phase. Maybe it was due to my upbringing, which required me to mature more quickly than others. Perhaps it was my innate desire to make a positive impact on the world. But, upon reflection, I wouldn’t change a thing. Every experience I had contributed to who I am today, and for that, I am grateful. But, I do hope that future generations have the ability to live at a more leisurely pace than I did. By rushing through my younger years, I missed out on discovering my true self, which was the most significant loss.
Struggle – What hardships have you gone through in life?
Oh quite a few. I have lost a child, I have lost a sibling, I grew up with teen parents who were finding their way while giving me the best life they could. I had no clue what I wanted to be when I grew up, so it took me lots of trials and errors to find my professional way. If I had to summarize, there have not been many areas of my life where I have experienced the “easy” path.
What do people usually not know about you?
I actually prefer to be more go with the flow, but I find myself in a Type A personality out of the desire to see change happen faster than the norm.
What sets you apart from your competitors in the industry and in life?
Giving a damn about people as a whole! I don’t believe in the “check your personal life at the door” approach to work. Every life experience shapes the person you are, and you bring that person to work with you every day. It’s important to support and care for the whole person, both personally and professionally. This doesn’t mean being coddled, but rather having high expectations in a supportive environment. People who feel supported are the ones who show up to change the world.
What are your upcoming major events?
I am talking on my first international stage in March at the Women Thrive Summit! And I am in the planning stages of taking some of my programs on the road to be live & in person again. There is something to be said for the transformation that happens when sharing space with others and then taking that back as the strong foundation to build from.
Your love life, relationships and family?
My family unit is my world. They are my biggest cheerleaders, truly love me unconditionally, and check me on my BS. They genuinely make me a better person, and words can never thank them for what they bring to my life. We have recently started transitioning to a more digital nomad life, and I love all of the extra time we are getting together.
What expert advice would you like to give?
Show up in this world authentically as you. If you haven’t found a safe space to be yourself yet, make one. Find your people and love them hard. None of us, no matter how introverted, can get through this thing called life alone.
