About me:

I teach women how to be human, at least that's what my clients say.

What I really teach them is how to manage the discomfort (feelings, old beliefs, & wounds) and embrace the gifts of being human (emotional resilience, unbounded creativity & rich, sweet moments), so they can show up to life exactly how they want to.

My gift is challenging women who have okay lives to make them amazing without feeling guilty or stuck.

Publishable bio:

Christina Smith is a life coach specializing in confidence and self-love in midlife so that women can finally truly like themselves and how they show up for themselves and their relationships. She's helped people move through tough transitions in coaching and with her book, Inviting Shift. Her focus is on helping women to empower themselves so they can make their second half the best half by dropping the people-pleasing and perfection and stepping into desire, authenticity and joy.

The mission is to help women reinvent midlife so we can revolutionize how we see aging and ourselves as we age. She encourages people to be more gentle with their humanness so they can truly shine the way they choose to without gratitude lists or toxic positivity.

A little more about Christina:

Christina loves teaching and coaching around how we live more intentional and confident lives so we can feel more joy, alignment, and ease -- especially as we're aging. She’s authentic and honest (sometimes to a fault) and she can see the wisdom beneath what is said to help beautiful humans see more clearly and empower themselves to show up the way that they want.

She talks to plants and small animals, but that’s about where the Disney princess in her ends. She's also known to drop f-bombs to show she’s serious. Loves a binge - binge-watching or reading that is. She’s humorous and loves dangly earrings. Catch her late at night rather than first thing, she needs a minute to awaken - unless she’s out in the woods camping -- then she’s probably the first one up.

Her husband has been her biggest mentor in life -relationships will do that to you if they are really good. Also known for reminding people that confidence is a skill, not a natural talent, and that everyone could just be a little more gentle with their humanness.
