    REBIRTH

    REBIRTH

    While we consider ways to adapt to life after the pandemic, Christina Morassi believes that we can't create anything new without dying first. 

    Sounds intense, right?

    Well, this successful healer-turned-coach has been there, done that. She achieved the entrepreneurial dream. But after reaching high 6-figures helping women find their Ecstatic Brands, she was exhausted from being in man-mode so she pulled the plug on her successful business. Yep, she killed it.



    And she's now on a mission to help other women leaders operate in the natural design of their Feminine Operating System™. Doing it all as a #DigitalNomad from amazing places like Bali, Hawaii, Italy, and Costa Rica.

I love this podcast and Carolyn! Her honest, frank and no BS style is so refreshing and fun. She's also really exceptional at getting to the heart of an issue and making a hard conversation effortless and enjoyable. I highly reccommend this podcast and personally could listen to her talk all day long!

You know she's talking to you when you get hot and sweaty

I love this podcast! Carolyn asks really insightful questions, and the guests are so authentic. I always know they're talking to me when I get hot and sweaty. Totally nailed. But then, there's a really empowering nugget of something I can try; it makes me feel like there are people out there like me, and a crew who have my back.
