This remarkable lady has seriously made her dream happen! Could it be because she loves what she does? I think so!!
A bit about Christina and how she got started in this amazing journey. "I opened my own business 4 years ago. I was working for another large school/training facility where they taught adult education and trades. I learned so much and when I hit my peak I realized this is the highest I’d ever be with this company. There wasn’t any higher... I built a dedicated clientele over the past 6 years and thought it was time. Time to take my shot at this and see if I would sink or swim. My dad heard of a little office for rent and that’s where it all started. I wasn’t seen from the road but word of mouth spread. Don’t get me wrong the first two years there were some times that make you doubt everything you do. I even worked a part time job to help supplement, and to see if this was really for me. Through the process you learn to be more hungry, don’t take no for an answer, every hurtle is another step closer, everyday is another achievement to stay open. Through the last 4 years my business has doubled every year. I’m no where near where I want to be yet but I have come so far and am very proud. I lay down at night and know I did the best I could that day, and I’m content with that. I work every day usually 5-6 days a week, juggle three kids, this business and life in general. Again there are some hard times, and you have to be mentally strong and know this is my passion, I’m not doing this because I have to in doing it because I love to and that will keep you going. I have three daughters that are watching me and no matter what age they are, they are absorbing all of your examples, your hard work, your dedication and trust me in their eyes they want to be just like you. For me having my girls see this means the world."
