Christine Laureano, CEO of Ba6 Botanicals

This month Transformation Goddess launched a brand new podcast on iTunes! I will be recording weekly goddess goodness, with one podcast each month devoted to a powerful Divine Feminine Spotlight: Stories of women who have claimed their feminine sovereignty and walk with strength, courage and beauty.

We kick off our new series with the fabulous Christine Laureano. Christine is a joy to work and play with. I’m grateful she made time to share her transformational story with the Transformation Goddess Community. Her mission is to teach you to Love the Skin You’re In!

Christine has worked through the ups and downs in her journey as a small business owner, mentor/coach and entrepreneur.  As the CEO and Chief Formulator of Ba6 Botanicals, her all natural, handcrafted skin care line, she shows women how to love the skin they’re in, and create a Buff & Beautiful Life. I’ve been using Christine’s skin care line for the last 4 months and love every single product I’ve tried. Do you love the skin you’re in?

I’m sure you will enjoy Christine’s Divine Feminine Spotlight. Give a listen!

Bonus questions

1. Tell us about what inspired you to become an entrepreneur?

The Universe! No, really. It took me a while – and several corporate years – to realize I didn’t fit the corporate mold. I was an idea generator, wanted to do things my way, and couldn’t conform to the corporate norm. I loved doing things in a different way and had a business vision that was unique. Once I “found” myself, my entrepreneurial spirit took off!

2. How have you created your precious life on your terms?

It took me a while. As a people pleaser, I found I was always exhausted. Doing for others first, and for myself much, much later. I have been a lifelong student of personal growth and inner development, so I went in! I went into the depth of my soul, looked at the hard questions, and found answers. It took courage and patience, but I understood that I was always creating my life. For years, I had let other people’s feelings and emotions dictate my response, rather than choosing how I wanted to “BE” in my life. Once I was aligned, I began creating my life on my terms and have become a powerful manifestor because of it!

3. Please share one tip for living a full life.

Listen to your own guidance! We are bombarded by thoughts, “to-dos” and advice on how to create a business, raise children, and live our life. This advice is well intentioned, but you are the only one that knows YOU deeply. Only you can make the choices that align with your values, goals and intentions. Don’t count your own wisdom short – you know more than you realize!

4. What is your favorite inspirational quote?

My favorite quote is by Marianne Williamson. “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us… Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” If you hold back your gifts to the world, you are doing a disservice to the people who are waiting for you!

    Ladies, what a wonderful reminder for all women – to take time to nourish our bodies and souls. Christine’s passion shines through when she speaks of her all natural skin-care line and her reason behind creating it. It’s my deepest desire that ALL women find the passion that feeds their soul and can serve the world when they share it – as Shann and Christine have done. Loved hearing you two amazing women share their wisdom and love!

    • shannvanderleek Nov 29, 2012, 3:02 pm

      Thanks Linda! I agree that we all deserve self-care and time to nourish our mind, body and soul. Big love! XO

    Shann~ A friend told me about you. (Tomar) I’m just about to publish a book about the awakening of the Divine Feminine, a “divine download” I received from Mary Magdalene. I’ve been a coach and art therapist for many years, so this work of supporting women in transformation is not new to me, but a very exciting turn. I’d love to talk with you about being interviewed. I think we’d have great fun and have a lot in common.

    • Shann Dec 11, 2012, 1:26 pm
