We had the good fortune of connecting with Christin Freeman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christin, do you disagree with some advice that is more or less universally accepted?
Before starting my business I have often heard to do this on the side while keeping my corporate job, so that I have a safety net and don’t have to worry about finances. I disagree with that advice. We all lead different lives and have different circumstances. While keeping a job while starting a business might be the best route for one person, it may not work for another.
For me, staying in a job that is out of alignment while working on what I care about on the side just didn’t feel right. I give 100% in what I do and didn’t want to just do 50/50 in two jobs.
While that is more risk financially, I also believe in taking the leap and trusting that the universe always provides.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
After graduating from Highschool I tried several jobs, went to college for a business degree and worked a corporate job for a decade. I realized that there is more to life than working a job where I don’t make a difference and following rules that don’t feel aligned. A few years ago I realized that I have gifts that I can use to actually make a difference the world and help people improve their lives, to be happier, less stressed and release what doesn’t serve them.
I spent most of my time when I wasn’t working my corporate job on learning more about healing and building my practice.
It was a lot of work but I didnt even feel that way because I was doing something that lit me up for the first time. Since then, I have transitioned to offering emotional release sessions using Emotion Code, somatic Coaching, Reiki and Soul purpose coaching.
Taking the leap of faith was the best decision I’ve made. We only live this life once and I don’t want to look back when I’m old wondering “What if”.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would go to eat at Callie’s Kitchen, Levure, common bond and Manna.
We would visit Hermann park for a picnic and some coffee.
We would also take a walk or bike ride at buffalo bayou and go to a meditation in the cisterns.
We would drive out to Galveston to go to the beach and have coffee at ModCoffee.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have a great group of friends who support me and who I can count on, my husband and my coach.
