Hey Boss Babe!
My name is Gabrielle Leonard, Event Income Strategy Consultant and Coach. I reside in the US Virgin Islands where I run my Events and Marketing Studio by Gabrielle Business (Inspired Royals LLC.). I specialize in helping female entrepreneurs to create their signature program/product, host profitable in- person classes and workshops (and get event sponsors) as well as being booked out in your service
My passion is to see women in business live in their purpose and for their income to reflect their impact. When I launched my business in 2015 I launched thinking that in 1 year I would hit the six-figure mark. But six months into my business, I realized that I was far from that goal. In fact, although I got clients here and there, and stumbled across some amazing opportunities, I was struggling to break even in my business.
There were many months where I made zero dollars in my business. I felt like a failure. I had told my husband that I would replace my income from my previous job by the end of the year but I was not able to. Because of this my husband and I agreed that I had to get a job to help support my family. This was one of the lowest moments of my life. I am an overachiever and getting a job (in my mind) felt like I had failed. So, I applied for some jobs. While I was waiting to get an interview, I decided to host an in-person workshop. I was planned out what I wanted to say and was able to have a sold-out workshop and I was able to make 3k from that event. I was shocked. Not only had I stumbled upon a new source of income for my business, I was able to book high end clients and get invited to be a keynote speaker for two separate events.
That one class allowed me to make income, book out my program and land other amazing opportunities. I was exited! I started hosting more classes and my business started to grow. By this time, I got accepted for a job where I was responsible for community outreach and event planning. I was able to work with commissioners, senators, CEOs etc. I was also able to land amazing sponsors for events I planned for my job and I was able to learn some strategies that I still use in my business today. Six months after getting the job, resigned and work full time in my business and I haven’t looked back since.
I am passionate about what I do because I have been in your shoes. I have worked with some amazing women (and men!) who have gone on to being booked out 2 months at a time, and growing profitable businesses.
