Wordless Wednesday: It’s Time To #GetOffTheFence!

Wordless Wednesday: It’s Time To #GetOffTheFence!

I just finished our shoot for the Get Off The Fence Movement video. I am on Cloud 9. I am so proud. I am so excited. My dream for this Movement is so big. Some plans in the works — to interview and showcase stories of other people who have gotten off the fence, and can teach others how to do the same. I also envision GET OFF THE FENCE Speaker Series in major cities– free for the public to attend, whereby attendees leave with their own GET OFF THE FENCE action plans. I hope you will help me share the Movement when it launches.

The Successful Entrepreneur: Fairy Tale or Truth?

Do you ever feel like your pursuit of your “dream career as an entrepreneur” is just a big, fat waste of time? That no matter what you do, what path you take, there always seems to be a roadblock in the way? And it seems almost pointless to try harder, or even think about it?

Wordless Wednesday: Making The Best Out Of Any Situation

I haven’t checked in since last week, as my kids are on Winter Break this week, and I have been trying to spend some good quality time with them. Good quality time that came to a screeeeeching halt on Monday. I’ll spare you the projectile vomit details that came two hours after my 9-year-old son hit his head on an ice slide after skiing on Monday.

Single On Valentine’s Day: One Woman’s Story of Tragedy, Triumph and Resilience

My name is Helen Georgaklis. I have been an entrepreneur for over 20 years. I have started up companies in the computer industry, to insurance, to retirement planning, to where I am today- an educator who works with children full-time teaching them how to become authors of their own stories. I have dedicated my entire career as a Financial Specialist to women, both young and old in building their own financial wealth. I made a living managing their money, but my work was far more as a counselor than anything financial. This is my story.

Are You Comfortable Being Alone?

Are You Comfortable Being Alone?

Happy Monday! I’ll admit, I’m off to a late start today. I skipped the gym and snuggled in bed with my man who came home late last night after a 4-day business trip. I even watched my favorite Grammy performances all over again this morning. The Grammys are MY Super Bowl, and honestly, if it weren’t for the music, I don’t know where I’d be. Call it cheesy, but whenever times have ever been rough, it has been my music that has saved me.

On Settling

I never thought divorce would happen to me. I had a friend who was going through one at the same time that I was. Her favorite thing to say was, “I didn’t get married to get divorced.” Really? ‘Cause I did! Planned it from the start! After countless times of hearing this precious little phrase, I wanted to knock this girl to kingdom come.
