We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexandra Geczi and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alexandra, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Like most entrepreneurs, I want freedom and control over my time. Time is our most precious asset, and how we spend it is important. I can spend my time working for other people to further their vision, or I can create my own vision and spend my time working towards achieving that. I chose the latter. As it relates to my business, I have a family law firm that helps women achieve freedom by helping them let go of the relationships holding them back from a better life. Our clients are women who also realize that time is precious. They can spend their lives stuck in a relationship that is sucking their time and doing what others tell them to do, or they can let go of that relationship and live a life they love. I love that I’m creating a business that helps other women on their journey to freedom.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Like most journeys, mine has not been a simple, straight line. Growing up, I wanted to create something beautiful that made the world a better place. At the time, I thought the only way to do that was to be an artist. Later, I thought it was to be a scientist and make some great discovery. But my adventure landed me in the law instead. I’ve spent over a decade as a lawyer, and in this role, I’m discovering my voice and learning other ways I can create beauty. The world is not black and white, and things are not always what they seem. Humans are beautiful, complicated beings with so much love to give the world. When we get stuck and distracted by other people and our own thoughts, we never fully become who we are meant to be. I’ve been stuck lots of times and felt like giving up. I’m still getting lost and distracted along my path. But I know that I’m closer today than I was yesterday to becoming who I’m meant to be. By creating my business, I’m helping myself as much as I’m helping my clients. Together, we can create something beautiful that leaves the world a better place.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Are kids included?! For this one, I’m thinking a girls weekend sans the kiddos. Since I love the outdoors and adventure, for me, the itinerary would include lots of that. We would go kayaking on the Trinity, rent a boat on a lake, hike some trails, dine at some fun restaurants with patios (sushi, Korean bbq, steak, or Mexican), check out a few iconic outdoor art installations (like the mustangs, the big eye, or the Nasher sculptures), do a wine and art class, picnic at a park (like Clyde Warren, Addison Circle, White Rock, Celestial park), check out a Farmer’s Market, and hang out at the pool at one of the fabulous hotels in town.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’ve been blessed – there are so many people to choose from! Do I have to pick just one? My husband, first and foremost, deserves a shoutout. He has let me take risks where other men probably would have stopped me, he has trusted me and my instincts, and he has been a partner in guiding me through tough business decisions that were overwhelming. He’s also stepped in to support us financially and at home when I needed him to so that I could work on and in the business to make it grow. My Director of Operations, Brandy, also deserves a shoutout. When we met, we were two clueless, non-committal souls who didn’t know where we would go with this. But she stuck with me and has played an integral role in keeping me on track. She’s helped me grow personally and professionally. Of course, my parents, who not only instilled in me the core values that drive this train, but my mom has been invaluable in helping me balance work with family. She’s the world’s best grandma/babysitter/chef/whatever-else-you-need, and when my business takes me away from my family, she steps in to carry that load without complaint. Work life balance would not exist without her. I’ve also had an amazing business coaches, life changing books, wonderful friends and colleagues, and a great team to support me at various points along the way. I’m grateful for all of them and look forward to meeting others in the future.
