My mission is for more women to rise up and be unafraid to build a life they love, feel inspired to give back, and fulfilled at the end of each day.
3 years ago, I left NYC in search of a purpose. Having been raised in a work driven, high-performance society
where your worth is measured by your job, having a work/life balance was not realistic if I also wanted a successful career. 14 vacation days a year were a luxury reserved only for a lucky few, and this had me feeling like I was only alive to work and pay bills.
I believe purpose, fulfillment, and joy are essential for humankind. If more people lived with purpose, if we as a society put as much importance into our happiness as we did into politics, nutrition, or health, our world would be a fair, safe, sustainable place. We would be more productive, be better leaders, better family members, and live in stronger communities.
It is our job to take care of the future of our planet, socially, economically, and environmentally. I want to invite you to set the example for future generations to not fall victim to oppressing societal beliefs that stop them from pursuing incredible ideas that could change the future of the world.
We are only on this earth for a short amount of time, and I want to spend it helping as many people as possible.
On Gaye Del Sol:
When I was a baby, my sister couldn't pronounce my name, Gabriela. Instead, she confidently dubbed me "Gayela" (GA-YEH-LAH). This eventually turned into the short version, Gaye (GAH-YEH), which has been my official name in my family ever since.
Del sol means from the sun. Like many of us, I am the best version of myself when I am happy...and being in the sun brings me instant joy. The true best version of myself, however, is the one that gets to connect with inspiring people like you. Thank you for making me Gaye Del Sol!
