1. What inspired you to become a Certified Coach Practitioner™?
I have always been a coach in different capacities (leader in my corporate career, coaching figure skating and swimming in my younger days, fitness coach, etc.)
As a social Media Manager I also fell into the role of being a business advisor and coach! I fell in love with this role! After researching how I could make this role more prominent in my business I found coaching! After researching and being inspired by so many coaches in the industry getting to be a Certified Coach was a must!
2. How did you determine your coaching specialty?
I am passionate about women achieving their goals and living their dreams! Becoming a coach for women was a natural path! My passion and expertise in Accountability, Strategy and Social Media led to my coaching specialty!
I am as real as it gets! I am a busy mom to teenagers, I have had a lengthy career in corporate management, I have had several businesses, some have been successful and yes some have been big learnings! I have gone through the struggles of a divorce and being a single mom and also met the love of my life and re-married!
I am sparkle obsessed and I spread this with my passion for helping female entrepreneurs and in turn I get to see them sparkle!
I thrive on empowering women to break through roadblocks and use fear to bring them to new new heights in their business using many coaching techniques!
Sparkle your Biz not only focuses on coaching but also hosts workshops and events provide an judgement free environment for women to network, work on presentation abilities and develop skills that are required to move to the next level in their businesses!

Being authentic and consistent! Sharing about myself personally and not letting fear hold myself back in this! Specific marketing tools – FaceBook ads have proven to be successful!
5. What is the greatest challenge you’ve encountered in your coaching career? How did you overcome it?
Fear of competition! Affirmations, journaling and having my own coach have all been big attributes in overcoming this! Knowing and reminding myself there is only one Christie! This is now the same thing I tell all my clients!
