Getting to know Gabrielle, the supportive business Wooman

This 29-year old business consultant has helped entrepreneurs start their own journeys. Gabrielle Marciano remains passionate in helping a community of like-minded business people bring forth new innovations and pathways to life.

What do you love most about your present profession and why?
My work enables me to help new entrepreneurs to penetrate the market either through developing new products for them or assisting them with branding and marketing strategies. What I love most about this stage of their business is that because they are new to the industry, it gives me the opportunity to also train them to be responsible entrepreneurs - to do business not only for personal benefit but to contribute to the society.

How do you deal with challenges in your career?
I ask for help when needed, humility goes a long way. I also remind myself that getting through challenges is what makes us better, creative and innovative. So, I don't indulge myself with sitting and whining - I make a move, think of a solution and keep moving forward.

What motivates you to excel in your field?
The nature of my job is helping entrepreneurs, the motivation is being able to help other people provide for their families while I am able to provide for mine. So, the best motivation for me is knowing that as I am able to help them provide for their physiological needs, I am also able to encourage and inspire them to help other people and communities as I have helped them. The goal is to be better so you can do more for others.

What is your advice to young Woomen who have just started their career?
It is a long journey to the top, hustle but don't rush the process. Have fun but be careful with the people you engage with. Have the right support system with you as you work hard to make a name for yourself. Remember that empowered Woomen rise by uplifting others. What makes you stay in the business longer isn't just about how great and best you are at what you do but how good of a person you are while you're doing your work and how you continuously work on making yourself better everyday.

What do you like about Woo?
The theme of empowering women. I love the campaign and I love how it transcends to wearing the clothing pieces. It makes me feel that wearing Woo makes me more confident and empowered as I wear a brand that constantly reminds us of it.

Given our current situation, do you think getting dressed up when working from home is a good idea?
Yes, dressing up is a sign of respect towards people we meet even if it's just online. It gives them an impression that you came prepared and that you spent time to prepare to meet with them. Even without the need for an online meet, dressing up helps with being in the right mindset during work hours. In fact, I even wear heels at home. It's a constant reminder that you are on your work hours - always do your best while looking your best. Being in pajamas while working at home is too much of a temptation to go back to bed and slumber the whole day. No no no to that! We need to hustle!

Given our current situation, do you think being stylish is still of importance?
It may not be a top priority in terms of budget but no one says you have to continuously spend to be stylish. If you're passionate about style and fashion, it may be good for mental health then it is of importance. Given our current situation, what you wear isn't what is important but how what you wear makes you feel and gets you through this time.

What is your favorite pieces from Woo an why?
Janina, it's classy, comfy and sexy!
