As a young girl, Gabrielle Bosché grew up hearing her father express his regret of not having a son and that shaped her perspective of who she needed to be. Equating masculinity with success, Gabrielle found herself overcompensating in every endeavor, forming an addiction to achievement that left her confused and in debt. Exposure to motivational speakers through her mom’s interest and attendance in motivational conferences sparked Gabrielle’s curiosity about her generation and the constant criticism of millennials. Driven by curiosity and her recognition of the generational gap between millennials and previous generations, Gabrielle was motivated to pursue a bridge to fill that gap. Quitting her job at 23, Gabrielle launched her first company, consulting major brands and the government on how to reach Millennials. She has written 5 books ranging from Millennial motivation, next-generation entrepreneurship, and her most recent, The Purpose Factor: Extreme Clarity for Why You're Here and What to Do About It was rated a "Top Book to Buy" from USA Today.
Gabrielle is one of the most booked Millennial motivators in the world. She has been called the "next generation of motivators" by Tom Ziglar and is a popular TEDx presenter, bestselling author, and co-founder of The Purpose Company. Her work has been endorsed by the likes of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Brian Tracy, Lewis Howes, and co-founder of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Marc Victor Hansen. Gabrielle has worked with everyone from presidential campaigns, the U.S. Navy and Air Force, and the top brands in the world. Gabrielle has been featured in major media outlets including NPR, Sirius XM Radio, Bloomberg Radio, Glamour Magazine, SUCCESS, Business Insider, and Los Angeles Times.
