Growing up I had a lot of challenges that made me believe that I was not likable and not good enough. To compensate for that, I became an extreme overachiever. My identity got wrapped up in grades, going to a top college and then eventually moving out to Hollywood and becoming the youngest ever female agent. By 25, I seemingly had it all from external appearances but inside I was miserable. Something always felt like it was missing and I was also suffering from depression and anxiety. At 26 I quit my job and then had a massive quarterlife crisis. In six months I also went into massive debt, got diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder, was estranged from my family and got dumped by my fiancé six months before our wedding. A very dark night on my bathroom floor turned into a huge epiphany that all these seemingly awful things could be happening for me not to me. The very next day, I woke up with the idea for my first book, 20 Something, 20 Everything. As I was writing and researching it, people kept saying, “you should be a coach!” After the 10th time I listened and went to my coach to begin training. Then colleges started calling asking me to come speak and teach life skills not learned in school. Then corporations started calling to have me come speak about Millennials. Then brands started calling, then retreat centers and the business truly began. I never thought that I could have overcame the struggles I did and live such a truly fulfilling life so it is my daily commitment (and honor) to teach others how to do the same.”
Inspired by my own unexpected challenges and experiences, I am devoted to helping people overcome “Expectation Hangovers” and answer: “Who Am I, What do I really want, and How do I get it?”
Nature of work
We are committed to teaching individuals and organizations how to “make shift happen” by combining practical strategies with mindset and emotional intelligence training. The vehicles we do this through are: Christine Hassler’s three best-selling books, keynote speaking, workshops and retreats all around the world, a top-rating live life coaching podcast, a business training program for service-based entrepreneurs, and online courses.
Our work is very holistic meaning we offer both practical advice and what could be called more spiritual/esoteric wisdom. It is also incredibly relatable and applicable during a time when so many people are going through challenging times making them yearn for guidance that actually creates lasting change. This unique hybrid blend is due to my diverse background and commitment to “walking the talk.” I am my first and most loyal client! My work with others stems from what I have learned along my own journey so I do not teach anything I have not learned and integrated myself. When I decided to start this business, I got right down into the trenches with my clients and the people who reached out to me. I’ve delved into very esoteric and mystical areas of energy flow, tarot, tantra, shamanism, etc. The practical side of me yearned for more tangible practices so I also poured years into formal studies of human emotion, NLP, intentions vs. actions, goal-setting, and long-range corporate style planning. I’ve invested thousands on courses, programs, retreats, training sessions, certifications – even a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
Risk is far worse than regret. Go for it. Listen to that inner call that your logical mind may attempt to talk you out of. A lot about committing to a mission doesn’t make “sense.” Do it anyway. That said, do not be reckless. Get a coach. Talk to a lot of people who are a lot smarter than you when it comes to their experience. Also, be gentle with yourself. I see so many entrepreneurs motivate themselves by being hard on themselves. That kind of hard drive may be effective but it is not sustainable. Your relationship with yourself will impact your business so make your own psychological and physical self-care a priority. Know your “why” and allow your vision to PULL you rather than push yourself toward a goal. And please do not buy into the misunderstanding that making it as an entrepreneur is going to give you all the fulfillment you are after. Your identity is not what you do so find ways to find the internal fulfillment now so that your success is not compensatory.
