We had the good fortune of connecting with Gemini Ferrie Rosegold M and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Gemini Ferrie, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I made so many painful mistakes in my love life that led me to give up on love altogether. I knew I was a great catch, I had given every relationship my best and it still wasn’t enough to build anything meaningful with anyone. I truly believed that some people get love and others don’t and that I must be one of those unlucky people who would never have love. So heartbreaking, when all I wanted was to love & be loved. So I decided to focus on myself and learn to be happy without a man, otherwise, I’d be miserable forever. And I didn’t want that. I was 29 then. Once I learned to make myself happy, whole, and complete just as I was, love came to me. Now I’m married to the man of my dreams and each year we grow deeper in love. I realized that there are still too many wonderful women in the world who are just as confused about love as I used to be. And I want to help them see how easy love can be when they have the right guidance and support. I want to lessen the suffering of women. I want women to feel loved and adored so they can more powerfully fulfill on their higher purpose because I think it will help humanity go in a better direction.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
As soon as I started working with clients almost a decade ago, the feedback I consistently got was that more insight had been gained from our 1st coaching session than all the years of therapy they’d done before. The issue was that I wasn’t reaching enough people. I was amazing at helping people transform very quickly but I had no idea about the business part. After nine months of trying to figure it out on my own, I realized that if I didn’t make this coaching business work asap, I would have to get a j-o-b. For a free spirit like me, that was not an option. I needed help desperately. So I hired my very first business coach who charged $5,000 in full. After begging her to let me do installments, she said yes. I had to borrow money from my uncle for the first payment. I had no idea how I was going to come up with the remaining payments but I knew I absolutely had to figure it out. I eliminated plan B completely and stuck to plan A: success no matter what. Since then I’ve worked with other personal and business coaches who have helped me reach goals that were unthinkable when I first started. On my own, it would have taken me at least ten times longer to reach the same goals. What I tell women is, sure, they may be able to figure out their love lives eventually by reading books, watching youtube videos, and following the often contradictory advice of their friends and family. But this slow road will take far too long and it will come with a lot of unnecessary heartbreak and wasted years they could have spent next to the love of their lives. Why not take a shortcut to the most wonderful partner who treats with the adoration and respect you deserve? By investing in the personalized high-level support that coaching offers, women can quickly get clear about what’s not working, why, and how to fix it much faster than they can imagine. This is my advice to women. Why wait to have the love you dream of? When you get the right guidance you no longer have to wonder why things aren’t working out for you. And whatever you do, don’t give up, even if it feels like you’ve tried everything. The love you want is nearer than you think!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to give a shoutout to the University of Santa Monica for their spiritual psychology masters program, which brought me back home to my own source of love, acceptance, validation, and support.
