What would you do with $10,000?
Would you take your dream vacation? Pay off bills? Put a down payment on a house?
I worked with a client who was barely making a living for her and her family. She thought she needed to go back to school for another degree to increase her salary to a livable wage. After 3 coaching sessions she scheduled a meeting with her boss and negotiated a $10,000 raise.
I’ll never forget what she said when I asked her how it went. “I should have set my sights higher. It was too easy!”
You CAN do work you love. You CAN be well-paid. You CAN be happier in your work and your life.
“I had applied for a new job and wanted feedback on my notes prior to my interview. Chrysta’s questions and suggestions helped me hone my talking points and questions that I had for the company. I felt supremely confident going into my interview… and landed the job.” – Amy Palmer
“Chrysta has helped me with many professional struggles and always guided me to my truth. She is an ace you want in your pocket! “ – Amanda Oliver
From welfare to wealth
In high school my family lived in poverty. I couldn’t go out for fries with my friends. I couldn’t afford a dress for performance choir. When I graduated high school I didn’t receive my diploma due to less than $80 in unpaid school fees. Thanks to a simple paperwork error, I didn’t go to the college of my choice.
That’s when I realized I didn’t have the same opportunities that other people had and that meant I had to create my own opportunities.
Over the next 20 years I created a successful professional career in business management, accounting, staffing, and HR.
I learned how business works. I learned what employers want. I shaped my own career path. I leveraged on-the-job training. I learned how to communicate with confidence.
It was all going great until I had a health crisis. After a stress-induced bout of shingles I realized I had more to learn. I started a work-life balance blog and discovered how to manage stress, improve my health, and increase my happiness.
I am grateful to do work I love from my home in Fort Collins, Colorado, where I can be found commuting on 2 wheels- riding my bicycle or my Buddy 125 scooter. I volunteer for several women-focused groups and the local humane society. I share my home with my spouse, our cats, dogs, and yes, even house-rabbits.
Finally, I made it! Woo hoo! I loved my work, earned a great salary, and loved my life! That’s when I realized the next step for me was to help others get what I have.
