Money You Should Ask

Oct 18, 2022

In order to make a good impression on others, we might do things that don't always align with our values. We might pretend to be someone we're not or put up a facade to make ourselves look better. While these things might seem necessary in the moment, they can cost us in the long run. By compromising our values, we lose sight of who we are and what's important to us and invite a whole lot of unwanted stress into our lives.

So instead of trying so hard to impress others, the focus should be on being true to ourselves, and building positive relationships based on honesty and respect.

In this conversation with entrepreneur and founder of the crystal inspired activewear brand, Confused Girl, Giovanna Silvestre, shares her journey from cool jobs - unhappy person to risking it all for freedom and peace, happy person. We talk about the struggles of letting go of safety and starting your own biz, when others say “get a real job”. We also explore when a failure is no longer a failure. It becomes a lesson and how to recognize the difference.

Giovanna created her activewear brand, Confused Girl, from the ground up. She’s designed and successfully marketed a full collection of crystal inspired products, accumulated over 1,000 loyal Brand Ambassadors worldwide and has been featured on NBC, Forbes, Influencive, and many more international publications.  

She’s spent several years living in different parts of the world (Indonesia, Thailand, and Italy to name a few). The self-love and courage Giovanna developed were made possible by the lessons she writes about in her soon-to-be-released book Confused Girl, Find Your Peace in the Chaos. For more information on the release of her book, follow her on Instagram @confusedgirlla.
