GiGi Diaz’s vision aflame

GiGi Diaz is the business coach and coordinator of Seizing Happy® Confluence Circles. She founded her first business, GiGi’s Academy in 2003. To do it alone, “a rookie mistake” she calls it now. The loneliness of being a womanpreneur and the common burnout led her to launch her second business Seizing Happy® along with Confluence Circles, to grow a community of powerful women who support each other and grow together.

Confluence Circles feature invitation-only free monthly experiences to bring together womenpreneurs to build connections. The upcoming event Move, Breathe, Grow is open to all  womenpreneurs. It’ll take place on 30th March in Coral Gables. Get your tickets at
