Christine's Story :
My life changed about ten years ago.
That was when I found the strength to confront some of the demons who had been holding me back. I wasn’t satisfied with my life back then, and I didn’t like the person I was. Lacking confidence in myself, I sought attention in ways that were not productive and I was intimidated by the women who seemed to have it all together. I did not believe that I was or could ever be one of them.
We are all the products of our experiences. We are who we are today because of them, and sometimes we have to find the courage to confront the past so we can kick it to the curb and move on.
Since I decided to face those demons and take control of my life, my journey has led me towards the person I want to be. I am an entrepreneur, not only running a successful home-based direct selling business, but encouraging other women to do the same. Working from home offers an answer for many women who want to maintain their independence, contribute to the household and manage their time while raising their families.
Over the past couple of years, empowering women has become my passion. Social media has allowed me to connect and share with women all over the world, using video has been one of the most powerful ways to do this. I now help others learn to communicate their messages through video too. I produce a weekly live Facebook show of my own, which addresses many types of content.
Last fall, I completed training and became a WomanSpeak Circle Leader, launching the first WomanSpeak program in Ontario in my home town of Trent Hills. This international initiative is
designed to give women the confidence and skills they need to “speak their truth, change the world”.
I like who I am today and I’m excited to see what the future holds.
