Hello SOTGC community,
I’d love to introduce you to a true inspiration, Kris Carr, and believe me, she is certainly one CRAZY SEXY woman!
Life threw her the curveball of “incurable” Stage 4 Cancer, but she didn’t let it knock her down. Instead, she decided to stand up with courage, grace, and zest, and turn that cancer lemon into lemonade (and if we are speaking in business terms, she’s sold a lot of juice). She set forth on a path of healing, guided by her own truth, faith, and belief.
Her gut instinct told her that she did not want to settle for just a traditional Western medical treatment plan, so she didn’t. Instead, she followed a more holistic path, focusing on a clean diet and other holistic healing modalities, and she chronicled her journey in her award-winning documentary called Crazy Sexy Cancer.
She’s been featured on Oprah and Dr. Oz (just to name two), and in countless magazines, blogs, and websites. And not only that, she is the best-selling author of not one, but five books, including Crazy Sexy Diet (more of a “clean and green” nutrition guide rather than a “diet” book), which I own, and highly recommend.
This is all a part of what she now calls her Crazy Sexy Revolution, and she is a thriving and successful wellness activist ten years after her initial diagnosis.
We can all stand to learn a lot from Kris Carr, in life, health, and in business, and here are two key lessons I’d love to share for our Stilettos Gals:
- When faced with a health challenge, she did not settle, back down, or let her condition become her. She believed she was in charge of her wellbeing, and proactively sought to partner with those that she believed would help her on her journey.
- She has been able to create a business, birthed from her passion, mission, and also from her triumphs and tribulations. This is what all entrepreneurs and small business owners should strive for. Follow your passion, and share your story. When you align yourself from this deepest level of inspiration, success will inevitably follow.
Kris defines “Crazy” and “Sexy” as follows:
Crazy: Out-of-the-box, game-changing, trailblazing
Sexy: Empowered, whole, awake, active (ist).
And this is exactly how I model my own business! I strive to help people become empowered to take charge, and finally become the masters of their own health, wellbeing, and ultimately, their entire life! I teach people how to awaken to their own wisdom, and help them connect back to their wholeness. Sometimes this requires people to think outside-of-the-box, try new things, and to become their own trailblazers, and when they do, they feel alive and inspired… and nothing excites me more than to partner with people on this game-changing path!
Cheers to you Kris Carr…keep blazing those trails!
