Inspiring new book features 16 women who overcame challenges to find success and purpose as entrepreneurs
USA, January 4, 2021 Christine Harper spent decades working for blue-chip companies, but when she was forced into “early retirement” she had no interest in retiring. “I was not ready to sit down and do nothing! I still had something to contribute.” She jumped into her local Toastmasters group, started learning about coaching and leadership development, and became a certified coach. She had found her niche.
Now she helps other women find theirs—but the key to success, Christine has learned, comes from a focus on your own wellness, both physical and mental. Even though she suffered breast cancer that required a mastectomy, a stroke that required lengthy rehab, a divorce that left her a single parent, and a high-stress career, she doesn’t point to any of those circumstances as her biggest obstacle in becoming an entrepreneur. “The biggest hurdle,” she admits, “has been realizing that I’m worth the investment. When you fall down or when you have a challenge, you have to realize that it’s worth it for you to get back up. Once you realize that you have something to offer, you do the work to get back up. And that’s what I’ve had to do time and time again.”
And because she’s done that, she knows how to help others do it too. “Too many of us don’t want to ask for help,” she says. But sometimes that’s the only way to get clarity, to open our eyes to our own worth. “We have to take time to ask for help. As a coach, I try to help people understand some of the things that I’ve learned over the years. There are some basic rules you can use to manage the situations you find yourself in.”
