We caught up with Christine to ask her a few questions in our latest Member Spotlight.
1. What is something you wish you knew when you first began?
I believe that all businesses are designed to help someone. There are endless ways to be unique, special and effective in one’s offering. Therefore, I am not a rule follower, and am open to new ways of being and delivering effective solutions to people. History can only teach so much, so I don’t spend time wishing I’d done something different. Bring on the new and let’s have an adventure!
2. What is something people might not know about Power Within?
Power Within is the foundational emotional and mental conditioning that precedes one’s best life. Every human being has the power to create more of what they want, and less of what they don’t. It is really that simple. The HeartMath Institute has devoted many years of scientific and medical research towards providing effective ways to improve mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being in the workplace. When you are in a coherent state, your thoughts and emotions are balanced and you experience ease and inner harmony. Who doesn’t want that?
3. What are you looking forward to in the future?
Oh my goodness, the possibilities are endless! I find my work fascinating, fulfilling and fun! I envision a future where many, many people are learning more about how to find happiness in their lives, be well and live in harmony with all others. I intend to be right there, as a guide, mentor and friend - digging deep, leaning in, connecting to something bigger than us and having an absolute blast doing it!! All that…and meeting amazing people, traveling to exotic locations on my bucket list, experiencing awe-inspiring things…and laughing…always laughing! Care to join me? At least follow me on Facebook (@PowerWithinCoaching) for weekly articles designed to nourish the soul.
