How do you create a meaning filled business that reflects your authentic self and your passions? Many creative small business owners start with a passion for their hobby and then find themselves adrift in a crowded sea with no idea how to set themselves apart. Instead of marketing based on what you do, imagine building the foundation of your business on who you are. How much more room would there be in your life for the things you love? What ways would you change the world?

Christine is an expert at helping creatives grow their confidence and discover their authentic selves – and then helping them build businesses that reflect their passions and their dreams for their business. As a coach, she has channeled her knowledge and experience into helping creative business owners with self-discovery, transformation, and declaring to the world their dreams and mission through their blogs, social media, and other outlets. All while building a profitable business around their passion.

Testimonials

“I am still in awe over what we experienced together at Inspire Photo Retreats. I also put together a list of my top 5 reasons why I loved Inspire Photo Retreats: … 2. Creating my Manifesto in Vivid & Brave and witnessing the power of other attendees owning their beliefs or strengths, and the things you should know if we are going to be BFFs.”
Sarah Lehberger (Inspire Photo Retreat, February 10, 2014)

“I took a journaling class with VIVID AND BRAVE. WOW was all I could say. They asked questions that were hard to answer about ourselves and what we believe. It was harder then you may think but really truly helped me see what I wanted to focus on. Tall poppy’s live proud and strong. (ask Stephanie of Vivid and Brave about the poppy story. It was life changing for me).”
Patricia Miller (Inspire Photo Retreat, February 10, 2014)

“I tend to be very critical of myself, so finding something positive to say (and wear on a name tag!) made me very uncomfortable. Now that I have this though, I can’t describe how empowered I feel. Writing it down so I can look at it — so I can keep it as a reminder of who I am — is an incredible gift, especially during those moments when I am feeling not-so-strong.”

“This would be a great class, whether the mini workshop or the full on mentoring program for any woman who has forgotten why she’s doing what she does. So many times we get into ruts and things get put on automatic and our creativity and passions suffer for it. This is applicable for pretty much anything in life and I like how this tied in business and personal life.”
– Brittany Bosse (Houston: Rediscover You Workshop, January 12, 2014)

“It helps you look at who you are exactly and what makes you tick so that you can use that information to create the message you want to give your clients. Be ready to be honest with yourself and others.”
– Leigh Ripps (Houston: Resdiscover You Workshop, January 12, 2014)

“This program helped me first discover WHO I am, what I love and what I want to do more of. Because I’ve realized these things, I am able to be direct with my message for photography and create blog posts easier.”
Jamie K! (Fall 2013 Life+ Group Coaching)

“I just finished up Christine and Stephanie’s Vivid & Brave (group) session back in December. SERIOUSLY, cannot even put into words what it has done for my blogging and voice on my blog. I photograph motherhood. My words are Intimate, Grace-filled and Sentimental. I celebrate the grace-filled journey of motherhood for intimate women. You can take a look at my blog if you want to see the dynamic changes that those 12 weeks made to my voice. I have been getting so much interaction and hits on there. Just about all of the blogs I posted since V&B have gotten over 100 likes… with one of them over 400… (however, my blog got hacked and I had to take them down and put them back up, so it looks like they haven’t really been read! Boo.) And I haven’t even really been posting my work, lately, I’ve just been allowing my readers to get to know me. Good luck. You will see such a huge difference once your reader connects with you.
Debbie Leanne (Fall 2013 Life+ Group Coaching)
