Gemma Serenity Gorokhoff is a truly inspirational and visionary woman and leader in every sense. She is an authentic woman as she constantly puts others first through her business. She is an entrepreneur of life.
In her business, this Swiss American born and raised in the French-speaking part of Switzerland is helping others to raise their star to be among the brightest in the sky of life. Indeed, through her mentoring business she, with her husband & business partner Sascha, is freeing people from trauma, pain, limits, and limitations to help them go above and beyond what they ever thought possible for themselves. Together they have founded the G.N.S. Academy, the Global Network of Success.
You may wonder WHY she has chosen to mentor people to go above and beyond what they ever thought possible for themselves as a line of business. Her life hasn’t always been this rosy as it is today. Gemma knows first hand what it means to be down, wrecked, have very little self-confidence or self-esteem, and to be made to feel like a discarded matter. Gemma is victorious over the worst form of domestic abuse by her former husbands, she was consistently beaten, put down, insulted, berated, degraded, economically abused for 15 long years. She was even raped.
So, it is easy to see why Gemma is an inspirational leader, a rising star in her field, and an empowered woman. She could have easily stayed down and remained in the worst form of domestic abuse. Even after leaving domestic violence she could have easily chosen to remain in her small city in Europe in her small but nevertheless successful career as a tax accountant. She could have easily remained there under the distant pressure and violence of her ex-husbands who destroyed her and her reputation as a woman and person completely even after she left them for good. She could have easily chosen to remain there and be a mother to her children in a terrible setting for them. She could have easily remained where she was even after escaping domestic violence without ever seeing a vision of a better life for herself, her children, and others.
She could have....but instead she chose to put an end to domestic violence. She chose to take the door and bounce back so much stronger and to go above and beyond and become a true role model and inspiration to follow instead of choosing to put an end to her life in every way.
Gemma courageously and heroically held on to her vision, moved halfway across the world to California without speaking English well enough and she built herself up again from the ground, with the help and support of her third husband, Sascha, to become a true example in courage, leadership, and resilience not only for her children, her community but for every woman out there. Instead of staying small and in fear, this courageous woman chose to rise from her ashes like a phoenix and be the guiding star for others so that they never have to be or feel down, wrecked, have very little self-confidence or self-esteem and to be made to feel like discarded matter and be, as well as feel, far less than what they truly are ever again.
Together with Sascha, her husband and business partner, they have been featured on CBS 2 with their work.
She is also an extraordinary mother to her adult son, who now lives in the US with her, and a marvelous wife to her disabled husband, or differently-abled like he likes to say, who should have never walked and who should have been mentally challenged as well as dead by the age of 7, a husband with whom she collaborates and runs her business today.
Further, she also is a very gifted musician, pianist and violinist, and an alumnus of IMD business school, MIT, and New York University Mindfulness, as well as a certified Reiki practitioner. At the heart of everything she does as a woman, a leader, a wife, a mother, a mentor and as a member of her community are LOVE, RESPECT, TRUST and INTEGRITY.
Through her journey to this point, Gemma has shown extraordinary and exemplary leadership, resilience, courage, strength, and vision. Gemma has chosen to raise her expectations for herself and rise by being a North Star, a guiding light for others.
For all these reasons Gemma deserves to be recognized as a Leader, a Master, an Example, and to show to the world that you can indeed go above and beyond what you ever thought possible and even bounce back from the worst and rise to the top. Yes, you can even be welcomed with open arms by your peers and be recognized by others for your courage, vision and example.
What a powerful message this sends to every girl and woman out there that you can rise out of any situation, and that no situation ever defines you.
Who am I?
I am Gemma Serenity Gorokhoff, a strong and powerful woman, victorious over 15 years of domestic violence (beaten, put down, and even raped). In 2013, I have put an final end to this unbearable wheel of violence at every level: emotional, physical, financial, spiritual, in relationships, in time and space management, and in my own motherhood as I am a mother of two boys, and only one of them has been growing up with me.
What am I about?
I am about that moment in time when a shift happens in your consciousness, and instantly changes your whole life for the better. When you finally become aware of what has been holding you back for so long, and that you are ready to embrace change and to recognize from where it went wrong in your life, you become empowered to make the change of belief that restores and improves everything. Every aspect of our lives is interlinked and there is no way to unlink them. When you believe something about relationship, every relationship must reflect your belief. Therefore, when you change your belief about relationship, all your relationships improve quickly and effortlessly.
What is in there for you?
I can teach you in a short time and in a precise manner the real-life tested tools and keys I used to break free from a highly unsatisfying life, so that YOU CAN experience the same freedom that I'm experiencing now. And with my unique understanding and frame of mind, having experienced both side of the coin: domestic violence and psychological safety, I am ideally experienced to bring you the best and most appropriate direction for your life, and to achieve your goals.
You can ask me everything spanning from social media marketing (digital marketing) to personal and spiritual development, passing by developing your own leadership style and reframing how you lead your team. I'm here for you every step of the way, if you area ready to listen and implement (at least, give it a try for 90 days minimum to see how this works for you) and then decide for yourself if this is something that is improving your life in every aspect or if you still feel stuck.
I'm not alone to serve and help you, my partner in life and in business, Sascha, can also come into play if this is appropriate and adequate. He has a sharp intuition that allows him to pinpoint your problem and your roadblock in a very short time and efficient way, if you are open to change and to be mentored by him.
I spent the last 28 years developing real-life tested tools and keys through countless of trials and errors. I started at age 15 to hone my leadership skills, and I kept on going with domestic violence at home, and every growing at work, being a continuous student of my field of work, constantly improving my skills. In 2016, I realized that to be successful in business, in the digital age, the age of information, I had to master social media marketing, understanding each platform individually as they are not all the same, and do not fulfill the same purpose (except connecting and networking with each other). When I say that I have 28 years of leadership experience in life, I own it, and during these last 28 years, I have topped it off with 5 years of digital marketing, for various companies.
All of this is truly important for you, if you truly desire to break free from a highly unsatisfying life, and if you want to work with a mature woman you know, like, and trust for all your digital marketing needs as well as personal & leadership development.
Which pain am I talking about?
I know the pain of a highly unsatisfying life:
Blameyou know when you have messed up, and the other person keeps on reminding you about it, making you feel like discarded matter the majority of the time, particularly when you try to get your head above the waters and get back up after a long period of fight.
Shame:the voice of the other person keeps on resonating within you as if it were you, and accuses you of all sorts of things that you end up believing that you did wrong. You end up believing that you are the problem, and that whatever you do, it's never good enough, it's always messed up, and at the end of the day, you feel that YOU are not good enough and life is not worth living anymore. You feel ashamed because of all of this, and you don't dare to get help for it, as you feel that you 100% responsible for everything that happened
Guilt:it's festering inside of you, and you feel obligated to comply with his/her every requests, needs, and wants. You feel that you are worthless, and that you have to make up for all the pain that you have caused because of your behavior.
Anger:and at a tipping point, you revolt! This has to stop! All of that is B.S. and none of it is true, as you did everything that you heard you couldn't do and much more. You end up throwing a tantrum to expressed this built-up anger that you have been patiently holding on to. This anger can be devastating for yourself, for your self-image, and of course for the other person who is at the receiving end of it as well.
Frustration:breathe, you are not alone. I know. None of what you intended to happen actually worked the way you intended to, and you constantly do your best to live through the frustration and still make your dream come true. You look at your dream, in your mind's eye, and you are wondering how you're going to get there, how you're going to make it happen, and you are almost ready to throw in the towel and move on, without having realized your dream.
Too many responsibilities:you keep on taking on more and more responsibilities, some of them are rightfully yours, and others are totally not yours to bear, but you're still this wonderful angel to takes on too much your shoulder, who set up high expectations for yourself, and who count on other people who do not deliver at the level of your expectations.
Uncomfortable comfort:that you know and keeps you stuck in it. This is your biggest secret that you cannot tell anybody. There is something in your situation that you find comfortable because you know it. You know exactly how the whole story is going to unfold, as you are used to it for so many years. It's always the same, and can actually go in two different directions, depending on a few factors that you have mastered over time.
The worst of it all? You made the unbreakable* promise to be there until the bitter end, no matter what, and that you would stay there now and forevermore, because you love him, you love her, you love them, and because you promised to someone who is so dear to your heart and so important to you. This promise that you made years ago is eating you alive from the inside, and you feel that you will probably be liberated only through death, if you ever get liberated one day, which is not a given.
Unbreakable? really? It is because you believe it to be true that it makes it true. At the instant you stop believing that your promise is unbreakable, you will allow yourself to see other options, other possibilities, and maybe even some light at the end of the tunnel.
It is when I realized that I was going out every day to go to work and coming back home every day from work that I suddenly thought - after having allowed the thought that I may not be as stuck as I thought I was after all - that I give myself permission to not go home ever again, and to break this relationship that was not working for anybody at home. That moment in time has been a total shift of consciousness.
This is one example of shift of consciousness that I'm talking about and that I pledge to help you go through - that being said, only YOU can shift your consciousness. I can facilitate the process, suggest ideas, tell you other people's stories or my stories, inspire you, give you hope, but it is YOU and only YOU who can shift your consciousness and change your life now forever.
There is no "right time" to make that kind of move, if this is what you shall do to go on with your life. We are living one life at a time, for some decades, sometimes even for a century, and it is our sole responsibility to make the most out of this life. The transformation starts from within, and it is a with great joy and dedication that I'm here for you every step of the way to create solutions tailored made for you, if you choose to implement them in your life and to heal your inner wounds so that you can finally experience a highly-satisfying life, full of joy and laughter, of fun and nice things.
I can't wait to talk with you and see how I can help you on your journey, no matter where you are at.
Relating with each other fulfills only a few needs: the need to be seen, understood, and acknowledged, as well as the need to not be alone. But it doesn't solve the issue.
I am victorious over my limiting beliefs and limitations and am standing on the right side of this overview of the terrible feelings that I have gone through and that you are way too often going through as well. My greatest desire is that YOU TOO are now victorious over it all as well.
I have walked the path and have left footprints behind me. I'm going to take you by the hand and walk you through the steps of liberation of this invisible but real prison that you have been experiencing for far too long.
