Author Biography

Gabriela Casineanu is a Romanian-Canadian award-winning author, professional coach, motivational speaker, and university instructor. 
Like many Romanians, she started her professional path in the technical field (engineering, IT, quality assurance), and earned an MBA. However, her creative and curious soul found a way to turn things around.
After immigrating to Canada in 2003, her career shift opened many opportunities for personal and professional growth: coaching, entrepreneurship, teaching and facilitation, systemic change, and art.
She wrote "Crossroads Moments of My Life" to help those who go through similar situations (or are about to): burnout, career change, and starting a business.
Gabriela is the author of ten books (four translated into French and Romanian), including the award-winning bestseller "Introverts: Leverage Your Strengths for an Effective Job Search."
An introvert herself, Gabriela is passionate about building a better world by tapping into introvert power. In 2020, she founded the Introverts Academy, an online platform that offers free resources, coaching, and courses.
When she’s not writing or focusing on Introverts Academy, you can find her enjoying outdoor activities (hiking, biking, skiing) or expressing herself in other artistic ways (jewellery design, painting, photography).

Reviewed by Renee Guill for Readers' Favorite

Crossroads Moments of My Life by Gabriela Casineanu is a very short memoir of a well-known life coach who has written many books for introverts. She tells a few stories about how she went from being an engineer to being a life coach, even though she is an immigrant. Gabriela Casineanu gives a special bonus pdf file for introverts, ideas on how to use their strengths. She also discusses her latest idea on starting an academy for introverts. It’s an informative and inspirational read for introverts.

I liked that Crossroads Moments of My Life by Gabriela Casineanu was a quick read. I was actually surprised at how short it was. I liked that she gave a pdf file that you can print out to use to help you find your strengths. I liked how she went into detail to describe how and why she transitioned her career and how her old job did not seem like a waste of time. I know when you have to change careers like that, you worry that all those years were just a waste; she made me realize it was not. Gabriela Casineanu also gave me an aha moment when she discussed how it is to lose people in your life. I really appreciate that the term she used made so much more sense. I think this book will be good for extroverts too; they can get a better sense of what it is to be an introvert, and why it is not a bad thing. But, if you are an introvert and need a bit of inspiration, then this book might be useful for you. She is even starting an academy which you can join as well.

After reading "Crossroads moments of my life", I had a burning question: "Who's experiences are shared here?" since many people would find themselves in the middle of this turbulent ocean. Gabriela succeeded to overcome all the struggles with courage and wisdom in order to open the door to winning strategies. The bonus of 30 introvert strengths constitutes a lifetime gift to readers who will discover that they are not unique in this world experiencing what Gabriela is describing in her book. "Crossroads moments of my life" is very inspiring. I love it and highly recommend it to everyone who identifies himself or herself as introvert or extravert.

Gabriela is an unstoppable force, and her stories are inspiring. I resonate with most of them, as I have gone through similar situations but never really had the courage to step up or act on the things that influenced my life... until I've read some of Gabriela's stories.
I've read her books and I often tell people: her book "Introverts: Leverage Your Strengths for an Effective Job Search" is the book I wish I had when I was looking for a job. (Don't get misled by the title; Gabriela shares important strategies and visions that anyone can apply).
I've purchased "Crossroads Moments of My Life" without hesitation because I know I'll find wisdom in her stories. Highly recommend reading all of her work.
