“This was a fabulous webinar!!  Chrystina is a wonderful speaker and shares her tips to help those of us wanting to make changes... but maybe too timid to move forward.  With her advise on making Gutsy Pivots, instead of staying stuck in the same ole way of doing things, I felt invigorated to take action on my dreams and ideas again.  Thanks so much Chrystina!!!  I'm pivoting into action.”

"As an oratory teacher myself, I enjoyed the use of "acronyms" as they make it easy to remember key concepts and help them to be embedded in your mind. "

She went above and beyond by not only facilitating our public speaking workshops, but she also spent extra time outside of the workshops to help us assess and modify our curriculum while making improvements.

"Coaching has been very beneficial. I've been working with Chrystina for a little over a month and I can already tell my mindset has changed and I have more drive to meet my goals. I've had many unplanned pivots in the last couple of years (having an unplanned baby and not making it into a graduate school program I though I was a shoe in for). Chrystina has helped me change my mindset to know that I can reach my goals and to have the skills to get there. After the first month, I've become more focused and positive. I can tell I'm making progress in my life!"

— Rebekah M.


"Early in the relationship, Chrystina asked me to write about why I am on this journey. That brief writing was an excellent reminder as to the amazing support system I have and how I have all the tools I need to be successful."

Gutsy Pivot Planner "GPP"

Do you like to journal?
Do you need more organization in your life?
Are you ready to make changes and move toward that goal you have been secretly dreaming about?

To survive early in the pandemic, I had to completely refocus my business, mindset, and lifestyle. I used my project management skills, dug deep to find my inner moxie, and used my grit, grace, and gumption to face each day.

What saved me the most was my GPP! Gutsy Pivot Planner.
It's a journal, planner, organizer, and reflection tool that keeps me going everyday.

  A method to keep your monthly and weekly goals / To Dos in front of you every day.
It comes with a recommended structure for your Daily activities to kick off your inspired days, track Activities, and then reflect on the highlights to plan ahead.
It is a system to keep everything in one place so you can have it with you everywhere you want to go and have a place for notes and checking things off.
