Episode 162: How to Redefine the Pursuit of Happiness | GiGi Diaz | Seizing Happy®

GiGi Diaz is a Mindset & Social Media Branding Coach, executive producer and host of the Chats with GiGi podcast, and serial entrepreneur with over 18 years of experience. She’s the founder of Seizing Happy®; a life coaching organization dedicated to nurturing the business and the woman behind the business equally.

While still growing her first business, GiGi’s Academy back in 2003, GiGi received her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Anthropology at Florida International University. It was during the pursuit for her Masters Degree in Communications that her life shifted entirely. She was working mornings as a radio host, evenings as a sports reporter, all while excelling in grad school, until the stress and exhaustion led her to the ER after losing her sight while driving.

It was then that GiGi realized that the HUSTLE was not the way to the top and that success doesn’t come from “doing all the things”, but from taking the right steps that get you where you want to go, faster with less burnout.

After a lot of inner work and learning, GiGi became an ICF Certified Life Coach, specializing in Mindfulness and Happiness Studies. She founded her coaching business, Seizing Happy® and created her signature program, the 3Rs System: Reevaluate, Restructure, Reset your life for success with less stress.

GiGi’s coaching helps women heal their relationship with money for more abundance and joy; feel confident creating boundaries, pitching your business and growing your network; and switch their mindset from HUSTLER to CEO so they can finally scale in life and business.

In addition to her coaching and business experience, GiGi comes from a broadcasting background having spent over 10 years in radio and television working with and being featured on networks like Telemundo, NBC, iHeartRadio and others. As an influencer, she has worked with brands such as Mazda, Truist Bank, Xfinity, Pandora, Topo Chico, and others.
