Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Tuesday, June 27, 2023, Eleni Fuiaxis (Episode #124.) Eleni is an Educator, Entrepreneur, SAG Actress/Model and Mother 2. Eleni is also the Author of the children’s book Series “The Kids We Love Collection”: Picky Patrick.
As a very busy Mom, Eleni recognized the importance of the connection with her children and one thing that her two sons loved were the stories that she would share with them. Eleni explained that as an actress / model, she was always sharing stories and she of course, absolutely loved this time with her sons! Her sons were engaged with her stories and urged her to write them down. Time went by and Eleni finally started to do just that.
As every story goes, there are trials and tribulations along the way. Suffice it to say, she continued to flourish, nurturing her gift (even through the ups and downs that life threw at her.) When she wrote, she flourished! It wasn’t until 8 years later where she picked up where she left off and started the process again. “Comparison is the thief of joy” and until Eleni grasped and shifted her perspective, she then flourished even more!
She may have thrown caution to the wind when she left her lucrative, 6 figure salary in Sales in NYC however she knew she was meant for more! During the height of covid, she switched gears yet again and became a Certified Teacher in New York City to serve children and give back to her community.
Obstacles, many; self-doubt at times, divorce and numerous other events may have derailed her, but “Truly” she is now in her own element and sharing her gift with others!
