UncategorizedMy thoughts from New York

May 14, 2023by Jill Douka

I am in New York, invited to speak at the Global Women’s Networking breakfast and I would like to share with you a really important realization I had: I believe that the #1 most precious thing for us are the relationships we create in our lives. Nothing else. 

I managed to arrange to be for one day with my best friend from school Michalis and his wife Maria and their children. We have been meeting very often as I go back in forth in NY for work and they come in Greece. Have you ever felt when you step into a house this “it feels like home feeling”? That is what I feel when we are together. And I am so grateful we met and spend some hours together 



When I studied in NY I was blessed to be “adopted” by a cousin of my father. Aunt Gogo is now 93 and I am so happy we met again. This woman, treated me like her daughter when I was studying in NY, was next to me through dance injuries and needles to say we watched tons of musicals together. She is my USA mom, that is how I call her 🙂

And it is awesome to see Eva, who is my right hand in Global Academy of Coaching operations and a GAC Professor. 

Eva is living in NY, a dream she had since she was a little girl! What a blessing to see someone have the freedom to live ANYWHERE they feel like while working on their passion and helping others?



What is the one thing you will do to build better relationships?

Would love to know! 

Will we meet in New York, London, Athens, Cyprus or online? Would love to meet you!

Check out the INCREDIBLE EVENTS we have all over the world and let’s meet!



Looking forward to seeing you!

With the Global Academy of Coaching family next to me and supporting me I know that I can be myself and that everything is possible!
