#Braavheart: Georgina Sanginés
Meet Georgina Sanginés a Belgian jewelry brand with Mexican roots. Today Georgina Sanginés offers designs that are a harmonised blend of its Mexican heritage and edgy aesthetic for a unique take on jewelry that is both eclectic yet contemporary.
First of all, can you introduce yourself and what you do in a few sentences?
I'm Georgina Sanginés, a Mexican pisces, movie aficionado and most importantly I'm the founder and Creative Director of my own jewelry brand.
Do you have a quote/slogan where you live / how you stand in life?
"Grab the bull by the horns" This quote always reminds me to be a badass, to go for it, to stop hesitating, to be fearless, to just go make my dreams come true!
How do you manage to maintain a healthy work/life balance?
Well, it's definitely not easy, I tend to prioritize work over everything else, however, I've learned that structure and routine are the best allies to such a chaotic mind like mine. In order to give myself time to reset and reconnect I've set a morning routine that allows me to ground myself and remind me the core of why I will do what I have to do during the day. Meditation has helped a lot and exercising is just the best I can give to my body to feel at peace not only physically but mentally too. Consistency is and will always be a challenge but I made myself the promise to never stop trying.
What is the ultimate relaxation for you?
Laying by the beach with a cocktail in hand and good music in the background, nothing can beat it! That or watching a really good old classic movie.
What brings you peace after a busy/hectic day?
Gotta be honest, it's hard to find peace nowadays while running a business and being as ambitious as I am, anxiety is always knocking on the door and it feels like there's too much at stake but sometimes I find it helpful when I take some extra time in the evening to revisit my vision board, a few minutes of calmness to manifest in peace everything I want and remember once again my ultimate goals. Also, from time to time, some reality TV really does the trick, RHOB is really hot right now ;-)
Objectives on a professional level?
I have big plans for GS jewelry, I definitely am working towards taking my jewelry brand internationally, growing our offer of products, opening a store and exploring other possibilities of offering jewelry for different sectors.
How do you combine this with your private life?
Both my partner and I are very career driven so it took us a long time to find balance, nowadays we made the commitment to always leave some space at least during the weekend to do fun things together. Thankfully we are both creatives and we love what we do so we are very understanding with our schedules and the effort it takes from us to build the future that we want.
If you could give a 1 (ultimate) tip to other ambitious women, what would it be?
Stop giving importance to what people will think of you if you try and fail, ignore that little voice inside of your head, people will always have their opinion so you better go and do it rather than never trying. The only one that matters in this conversation is you and your dreams so go follow them!
Which book do you think is an absolute must-read for our braavheart community?
Awaken The Giant Within by Tony Robbins might have been the first book that gave me tools to not only fully believe in myself but also to put my ideas and goals in a realistic and step by step achievable plan. I highly recommend it!
Who do you think should not be missing from our #Braavhearts section?
