Christina is not only beautiful on the outside, she’s a stunner of a woman on the inside. I’ve known of her from the online space for quite some time, but only really got the chance to meet her in person and connect directly when she invited me to be a speaker at an event she had organised at the beginning of the year.
Every time since then, that I’ve had the sheer delight of engaging with Christina, she’s been so warm, genuine and kind-hearted. She’s walking-talking proof that there are awesomely good people walking this earth. The love and kindness oozes from her.
If you ever get the chance to meet and work with Christina, I can highly recommend it. You’ll walk away with a new friend, who’s changing the world in her unique and vulnerable way. And that’s a special combination!
Christina Masureik Consulting
I connect people and brands through events, speaking & writing, My aim to create to contribute to a thriving local community by uplifting mothers through motivational speaking as well as through hosting events that connect moms with local brands.What makes your product/service/business different?
I have a personal story of triumph that I share in my talks to help everyone understand we all have a choice in how we choose to lead better lives.Why do you do what you do?
To support women in raising children that need emotional strong leaders, because I never had that growing up. And to support the local commerce because our country depends on it.What has been your biggest challenge on your career/business journey & how did you overcome it?
My biggest challenge in rising up to my own personal brand and sharing my story in all its vulnerability is overcoming criticism from those who merely view it as "airing your dirty laundry" or punting "self help rubbish". With the support of my closest friends and family, especially my husband, and the beautiful community that needs and values my voice, I have overcome this challenge by accepting that not everyone is in my target audience, and that is OK. Some people grew up in really stable homes and have the normal 9-5 job. Good for them! They're not my audience.What would you do differently if you could start your journey again?
Absolutely nothing. Everything that happened happened for a reason. Steve Jobs puts it well "you can't connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backward."
Through connecting me with like-minded, driven female entrepreneurs. The confident conversations over coffee is my absolute best! Female entrepreneurs getting real and personal over lattes. What more does one need on a Wednesday morning?!What advice would you give other women, either starting out or already in their business/career?
Know your WHY and your WHO. When you veer off track, get back to those basics and remind yourself why you started. You have to feel it and live it everyday from your heart.What’s next for you and your journey?
My greatest goal at the moment is to publish my memoir and continue to take every public speaking opportunity I can get so I can sharpen my skills in sharing my story and the uplifting tools I used to overcome unworthiness, in business and in life.What one thing would you change (if any) that would make you your most confident self?
To completely let go of the need for approval from others. I still battle this.What does confidence mean to you?
Knowing with the utmost conviction what your goal in life is and setting out to achieve it regardless of what you lose.Anything else to add?
