Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Christina Willis. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Hi Christina, thanks for joining us today. Can you share an anecdote or story from your schooling/training that you feel illustrates what the overall experience was like?
The Fueled by Fire Mastery Program has changed my entire life. The trainings there have helped me overcome a poverty mentality and how to be more confident in every area of life. I have gone from being homeless to making a six figure income, owning a business, paying off major debt and buying my first home at 48 years old. The mindset shift these trainings provided have been crucial and have been the key to how I have been able to overcome my past and am now building the life and business that I love.
Christina, before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
I have a past of domestic violence, homelessness, addiction to witchcraft and paranormal, extreme grief after losing my son to a drunk driver, among other things. After meeting Staci Wallace five years ago and going through her programs I am now Director of Outreach for her non profit EMwomen and I work with her full time for Fueled by Fire as one of the lead advocates and cohort leader. Fueled by Fire offers a one year coaching program that focuses on the 7 F areas of life: FOCUS, FAITH, FAMILY, FINANCE, FITNESS, FREEDOM AND FUN. We also have single courses that are available for purchase and each one is incredibly life changing. What makes our program different? We aren’t just a “video” program. We provide the scaffolding and accountability that will walk through the program with you to make sure you get all of the resources and assistance needed to successfully build the life and business you love. All of these courses changed my life including Smart money makeover, which taught me the keys to becoming completely debt free by the end of this year, paying cash for my car and buying my first home at the age of 48. Mission Possible and Goals & Habit Mastery helped me find freedom from the habits and mindsets of my past and taught me how to walk in peace and freedom and total forgiveness. Effective Communications and Magnetic Sales & Marketing taught me how to attract the right people to me and my business and also how to effectively communicate in the areas of public speaking, interviewing as well as marketing and promoting my business. I’ve learned how to not only brand myself but also my business, how to find my ideal client, how to build my websites, funnels and so much more!
Can you tell us about a time you’ve had to pivot?
I have been a Nationally Certified Registered Medical Assistant for over 22 years. I loved my career but began feeling a shift when Covid hit in 2020. As many other healthcare workers I was not willing to participate in the mandates that were forced and knew that my time in healthcare was coming to an end. I was already volunteering with EMwomen as Director of Outreach and really started praying that God would somehow open the door for that to become a full time position. When Staci launched her latest book, Fueled by Fire, God literally created an entire movement and our Fueled by Fire Coaching program was established. There was my door! I am now getting to share my story with thousands of women are have been or are going through some of life’s most challenging issues to show them that there is hope. They do have an incredible future ahead and they are not alone!
Any stories or insights that might help us understand how you’ve built such a strong reputation?
Learning to change my mindset about my past and the things that happened to me has been so incredible. I meet so many women who are going through exactly what I have been through, and to be able to share my story and to show them how God and Fueled by Fire have changed my life is more than a dream come true. I have been through all of our programs, some multiple times. I have been in a place of extreme hardship but decided that I needed to get around the right people so shift could happen in my life. I sold whitening toothpaste to get in to my first program with Staci. That was a lot of toothpaste! I also got a second job and sold toothpaste to go through the next program. As I share my story I am able to truly understand where these women are and what they are really going through, because I have been there. I am able to not just tell them it will be ok, but to really offer them the wisdom and guidance that I have learned going through this program myself. They are able to see tangible real change in my life, not just words that make them feel good. I don’t want to offer false hope and make promises I can’t keep. I want women to know that if I can do it they can definitely do it!!
