Girls Can Do It Too! 

We live in a world where women are just seen as creatures who are meant to stand there and look pretty. I refuse to be one of those girls (of course I want to look pretty, but I can’t just stand there and do nothing!) 

Since graduating I’ve had this dream of being my own boss! I honestly can’t work, the longest job I’ve managed to keep was for a year and that was because my mindset just wasn’t there. Shock! 

I used to think there was something wrong with me! Why can’t I keep a job? Why do I dread going to work every single day?! Why am I always moody? 

The answers evolved when I read “The 50th Law by Robert Greene and 50 Cent”. This book opened my eyes, it made me understand that my purpose on this earth was to be an entrepreneur! Music is what I love, although I CANNOT sing or rap, I love to manage musicians and help them reach their dreams. 

The first step to being an entrepreneur is to take a risk! We cannot plan everything that happens in the future, but what we can do is adjust our mindset to help us improve our chances of success in the future. Believing means achieving, if you don’t believe in yourself how do you manage to succeed? 

I remember when I didn’t believe in myself, looking back now it made sense as to why I wasn’t progressing. Now that I’m confident and believe in my dream, things are picking up, things are looking bright, I’m attracting positive energies around me and now my team is so strong I couldn’t ask for anything more! 

As a female people make out that it’s harder to be a boss! But really and truly we do it just as well, (maybe even better), then men! So what’s stopping us? FEAR! We as females are sometimes reluctant to step out of our comfort zones and put on those boss shoes, why? Maybe because we fear people may laugh at us, or maybe they won’t respect us? Don’t be scared! You would be surprised how many people will actually rate your work ethic! People will find it so inspiring that you have put those boss shoes on and are making something of yourself! 

“I’ve always wanted to be my own boss” Gabrielle, CEO of GMG

It took me a while to put my boss shoes on, I will be so honest with you, but once I found the courage my heels on those shoes kept getting higher and higher! What I mean by that is I keep believing in myself that my goals are getting bigger and bigger. I’m reaching those goals slowly but surely. I took the risk and decided I wanted to be an entrepreneur, and that’s all I’ve been working on. 

There will be days when you feel like you want a normal job like everyone else because you are struggling with the journey, but trust me Gods got you! If you put all your faith in him nothing can defeat you! God himself says: “When the time is right, I, the Lord will make it right” 

Only allow positivity into your life! Positivity attracts positivity, therefore all you can expect is happiness and success! 

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, don’t feel like you have failed because something didn’t work out the first time. It’s all part of the journey so embrace yourself, swallow the pride and hold your head high! 

So to all my females out there, let’s do it! We need to push one another, we need to help each other, we need to advise each other if we want to succeed! But most importantly we need to take that risk and believe WE CAN DO IT! 

Team Work Makes The Dream Work!

International Women’s Day

Yay! It’s International Women’s Day, I was a bit sceptical to write a blog post today, but I felt it was necessary because it is a day we can celebrate the empowerment of us females!

Ladies we are beautiful, God created us in his image that’s why we are all uniquely made. We come in different shapes and sizes, different races, different complexions, and although we may look different from the outside, one thing we ALL have in common is that we are AMAZING! They should call us SUPERWOMEN! 

However, being a female is not always easy, we don’t get the same ratings as men, we are seen as the emotional ones, the crazy ones, the species that are under rated!

We have to carry a baby for nine months, we have to give birth, we have periods every month, we eventually will have to be the ones that have to cook, clean feed. We have to deal with sexism in the work place, men constantly putting us down because they don’t think we are as strong as them!

Today we get to celebrate how strong and successful we are!

For me personally it’s been a tough ride working in a male dominated industry as a music manager, but instead of letting it be my downfall, I used it to make me work harder. 

Imagine being in a studio session with an artist I manage and a group of strangers, automatically they assume I’m some sort of groupie, little do they know that I am a music manager! I don’t blame them for their assumptions, because this is how us females are portrayed sadly. However what I’ve realised is that the way you portray and carry yourself is the way people will treat you. 

Immediately I need to make my job role known so that these males don’t automatically assume that they can ‘move to me’ or even disregard my presence. One thing that Yandy taught me is that if you want to be a boss you have to act like one! 

I absolutely love my job, I love everything about being a woman in the entertainment industry and over the past five years I’ve worked so hard that I know I am a female hustler! 

Show your talents. Be authoritative, be assertive, be bold, be confident and be a female boss! 

We are more then capable of anything and have the will and power to do certain jobs better than men so why don’t we get the same respect?

Females let’s celebrate this day to show how special we are and the impact we can have on the world! 

I love that I have the ability to carry a baby and bring a human being into the world, I love that I can eventually be a wife and a mother. 

I love that I’m a CEO/Founder of a music management company and constantly building my empire, I’m super excited for the future to show the world how powerful we as females are! 

I’m working hard to build a team of females so we can all work and grow together, if you are a creative and want to get involved in the movement feel free to leave a comment so we can connect or follow me on my social media outlets – @gabrielle_music. 

On that note, I will be live on DJ Special D’s radio show on Thursday 9th March from 8pm celebrating #InternationalWomensDay so make sure you lock in (details can be found on the flyer below)!
