I love working with people 1-1. Apart from my other projects, I hold the space at any one time for six (6) people who are hell bent on creating an IMPACTFUL business that is good for the planet and all the creatures on it.
You know…business where we want to make a profit, AND we do not want to sell our soul. Even one nano piece of our soul. Because that price is too high.
Here is the offer.
Entrepreneurs for Impact
A more beautiful world through business
You and me. 6 months. I am going to work with you side by side to bring your beautiful business to life. To bring your life to life. To ask you questions you had never considered and introduce you to tools that will pave the road with smooth for those rough days ahead. A bit of coaching, some advising, learning, sharing, inquiry, introductions, personal and leadership development and strategy. Most of all partnering. Because that is what I do best.
Like a personal incubator/accelerator built on a platform of integrity and care.
It will be real. We will work on you, we will work on strategy, we will work on speed bumps and road blocks and self sabotage. I will pick you up when you feel beaten. I will fly with you when you fly high. I will keep you focused, resolute, determined. We will laugh. Probably cry. Most people cry at some stage, because we are all, in the end, very human, and the world definitely needs more humanity now.
It can be different for everyone, and it will be something we will explore in detail when we first come together. Meeting your expectations is something that matters to me.
And…it may include…
*Purpose and Passion. Bringing it to life to build a business and grow a genuine network.
*Aligned, focused, clear intention and action. That kind of intention that precedes you when you walk into a room. Action that is strategic and impactful.
*Highly functional teams. Culture does eat strategy for breakfast.
*A robust plan of action based on an objective current and future strategic overview.
*A commercialisation strategy that is good for business and good for the planet.
*Tools and models that change the game of how you play business, enabling transformative innovation to create a more beautiful world, now and for the future. Potential models include communication tools to have the most difficult conversations, tools to consider 6 domains of value rather than reducing all value to a monetary one, leadership development models and organisation design models to build self reliant, self responsible teams.
*An inner resolve and strength that allows you to know that all will be well, no matter what.
*Possibly some serious uprooting of nasty habits and no-longer-needed beliefs.
*Possible connections to game-changers that will put your business on fast track, if that is the best route to go.
*Building your network as a business strategy. In our world, networks are one of our best assets, but we often do not give them the priority they deserve.
*Implementing the 40 Considerations for a Beautiful Business.
*Ensuring that in all of this you have a LIFE. You know, laughter, fun, play, rest, health and love.
I started working with Christine because I was lost. I had everything but had nothing. My private life and business life all melted into one.
Christine has the ability to clean your mind, make you see things in a different light and send you away with a new sense of energy and vigour towards life, relationships and business. She is one of the most amazing people I have met. Very few people have touched my life and changed it for the better the way she has. Jason Andrew Auctioneers.

If you have been reading my blogs for a while now you’ll know a few things about me.
1. I am dedicated, as in completely passionately dedicated, to beautiful business. Business that serves humanity. Business that takes care of its people. Business that stands out as a safe haven from tricky little marketing ploys that seduce us into buying obnoxico we do not need towards some never-to-be-achieved happy state based on filling a never-to-be-filled-by-useless-things void. I want business that actually offers products and services that make a beautiful IMPACT to people and planet and all the creatures on it. I am guessing you do too…Towards this intention you have to get powerfully aligned to ensure your desire meets the highest intersection of the desire of your business, and that the clarity and through lines are so pure they can be felt from the other side of the world. And we have to be sure you are the kind of business leader who is able to weather the storms that will come fast and thick. Especially from areas where your model of good business causes disruption in the business-as-usual extraction to extinction camp. Which it will. So we will need to get into the weeds of your why, what and how. And we will have to build your inner resources to meet the fast pace outer world of change.
2. I do not hold back on calling BS. I am straight up and direct, with LOVE. Because the clock of our life is ticking, and I care that you get to the marrow of things fast. And thoughtfully. I dare to care more about you than most people will. Always.
3. I am strategy sweet when it comes to the human side…building teams, getting the design right. Handling those non-negotiable agreements to keep the main thing the main thing. I know from lived experience (not theory) how to get amazing people to do crazy amazing bigger-than-they-ever- imagined things TOGETHER, with elegance. And let’s face it, if you do not get the people/team on high-level-hum, then you have trouble ahead. Messy, sleepless nights kinda trouble. Costly, even horrible legal kind of trouble. And while I am great at cleaning up that kind of trouble, let’s not go there if we can prevent it, OK?
4. I have the most awesome global network of people doing this kind of business building. As in living out there on the threshold of new models. Building enterprise where our entire energy field is wanting to play all-in. I am super talented at matchmaking. Need funding? Maybe I know exactly who might help with this without taking all of your hard earned equity. Good people who will not rape and pillage and leave you high and dry. Need commercial strategy? Well, strap in, have I got the person for you. Need some brand strategy? Cool. How about some growth hacking? We got that one down as well. My global team are all selected with utmost care. Because reputation matters. Yours and mine, and theirs. I care deeply about the whole impact.
5. And I can teach you how to build your network. Solid, heartfelt, aligned connections. Gold.
6. I am a safe haven. If you are a match to work with me, our conversations and connections are shame and guilt free. You will find an opportunity to share the stuff that you may not have shared…and be held with infinite compassion. I care to my quick about the full measure of your soul being unleashed in the world. Even those blunt edges. Because that is what makes you you, and we need all of you to show up in service to the future of humanity. Starting now.
7. I get complexity. Fast. I see patterns that most people do not. This is my SUPER POWER. My view spans from the ground to the spaceship. A massive asset to any business build. See the whole forest and the trees, and see them as they are now and as they might be. Almost no entrepreneur is able to do this with their own business, not even me. (Which is why I have my own version of me as a partner.)
I hired Christine in my desire to be more, increase my leadership potential, learn more and push my limits. This was inline with moving from one side of the world to another for work.
Every dialogue brings me something special, a realization, clarity, the right questions, calmness, inspiration. Working with Christine can turn me from low to empowered, from no hope to inspired progress, from fighting the system to empowered to move forward, from unsure to confident.
Three tangible, measurable changes / shifts have been:
Clarity in my dialogue to others – clean communication
Truly listening and allowing the space/trust
Confidence to believe and follow my intuition more
Business support is incredibly and great. When I need more contact I ask and Christine is always there. I have become better at asking and reaching out. Working with Christine is like looking into a mirror reflecting myself. She continuously brings integrity, truth and honestly to the table. She inspires me to truly be me, listen to my inner voice and move beyond ordinary expectations. Christine is like a guardian angel who I deeply trust and now is always with me, empowering the best from me. I could not recommend Christine enough.

So back to my roots I go, twenty two years after I started this work… with new skills and insights learned through building projects and social businesses on the ground locally these last years. As in, no theory here. Hard earned, hard won practice in Entrepreneurship. (Building a world class festival of entrepreneurship to enable citizen partnering with 3 levels of government to forward our communities future. (Big Blue Sky) Working with a global team of talent to serve enterprise development. Years partnering with entrepreneurs in real estate, fintech, digital, hard wear, agri-biz, and sustainable business. Funding, finance, pitching, systems change, intangible asset finance….)
Building business-as-usual as an entrepreneur is hard. Most don’t make it. Building IMPACTFUL beautiful business for the future well-being of humanity is harder. No maps, rule breaking, lonely. But this type of business is about LOVE. And LOVE makes all the difference when the going gets tough. You have to love your business so much that you endure through its full arc of life.
Partner with me to smooth out the hard. To bring in more love and beauty and goodness. Let’s have fun doing it together.
- Complete the application process.
- Once approved we will arrange a kick off time and you will pay for your first month, in advance.
- At that point we will communicate by email until our official start time. Our first session is an extended session to get to know each other, learn the lay of the land, and ensure we are a great match. Super important that we are right for each other. If so, we will lock in times to get going.
- Then, over the following 24 weeks (6 months) we will meet, twice a month. Together. Passionately. All in. To build the kind of business that makes your heart sing, my heart sing, the worlds heart sing…and ensures your evolving well-being in ALL domains. (We use well-being in 6 domains as our benchmark for thriving, one of the models we will introduce.)
- The 6 months needs to be completed and paid in full within 7 months. (to give us 4 weeks wriggle room for holidays, mental health days, and other life events.)
You will work with me, AND, with your say so, we may bring in some wonderful co-collaborators who might be able to add depth and dimension to accelerate progress.
Plus a bonus if you desire….a review of your business by some super aligned people with massive experience and commercial smarts. And lots of love.
And, we will be watching the things that matter to you when you say…this was the best investment I have made in my business till now because this happened.… You choose…Sales? Inquires? Conversations? Social Media activity? Personal Resilience? Application of smart tools? Impact? All of the above? Something else? Land a hot date?
Even after the 24 weeks, we will stay in touch. Because I care about you and your business. I am in this for the long haul, if you are? (As in you are as super excited about your beautiful business and its impact on the world as I am.)
How does this work with the money? I wanted to make this as accessible as possible.
$1500AUS deposit on approval and space permitting. (100% refundable) This covers the first extended session plus #2 session for the first month.
$1000AUS per month in advance every month for 5 months which covers 2 sessions per month plus offline work as needed.
(Plus GST in Australia. Bonus if you live in the USA and are converting to Aussie $..a currency discount.)
(If ongoing support after the 24 weeks is needed, we can chat. If your business is wildly complex and we may be limited by how much we can achieve in 24 weeks, we will have that conversation on Day 1. I do have clients I work with every week at a different price point, because…well they are going hard and fast. I will be straight with you. No BS. No offers that are built on sand. Real goodness. For you.)
If you are NOT SURE. I have been doing this work for several decades now with clients all over the world who I am still in touch with regularly, because..well…they are amazing people up to awesome mischief creating beautiful business…and I do care about them and the impact they are having on the world…
Even if you are not really sure what you want to create…or your business needs to take a left/right or reverse turn, then read through this again…and if it calls to you…then apply. Because we are better when we work together. And we have way more fun. And the world needs us to get to it, now…the future is depending upon us.
