Every episode has been chock full of awesome nuggets and beautiful reminders. The combination of incredibly successful powerhouses sharing their journey, practical and applicable tools and Christine’s heartfelt and authentic approach and energy, is an incredible gift for all heart-centered entrepreneurs!
Loved the interview! Dondi has a great way of reminding us that we get to choose the lesson in our experiences.
I just started listening to Christine's podcast and the content is amazing! Can't wait for the next episdoe.
Love this podcast! The lifeblood of any business is sales and Christine does an amazing job of making sales something you'll fall in love with instead of dread. These podcasts are short and get staright to the point, filling you with both the knowledge and motivation to go out and bring in lots more money to your business by selling from your heart. If you want to bury the notion that sales is sleazy or avoid "gurus" who make sales sleazy and instead learn to how to sell in a way that is heart-centered, easy, win-win, and non-pushy, then look no further... you have found the right podcast!
Great show about creating a business with heart. If you think it, you can achieve it and Christine show you how to use your heart and mind to find success. I'll listen again.
Wow, what a great interview with JLD. Christine your energy is great and I look forward to listening to your other episodes. Well done! BTW I love the title so much!
... and your mindset will take it from there. Yogi Berra once said "90% of the game is half mental." With your heart and mind aligned (like planets) you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish. Subsribe, listen and start selling!
These are wonderful interviews with successful entrepreneurs, (including the Queen of Sales Mindset, host Christine)......who share how they began, what their difficulties were, and the sales mindsets & strategies they used to get to their top. If you've ever had that icky feeling when it come to 'selling' you or your stuff....get some great inspiration here of not only how to sell, but how to think.
Just listened to ep 5. Love the POWER formula. Christine explains it clearly and makes it simple for me to understand. Great podcast!
Let’s be honest, we can ALL be better at selling. I know I can, and I’ve been studying selling for years! Have a listen if you want to start getting better. I’d recommend it!
Christine is a joy to listen to and learn from! I am so glad she now has a podcast so I can keep learning from her wisdom on sales, money, mindset, business and more. Great information!
Wonderful energy and such valuable insight! Thank you, Christine!
Christine does such an incredible job of helping her listeners to find their way with selling with love, from the heart. Her guests offer so much value—looking forward to more interviews!
Christine has a wonderful energy. She is a great coach and teacher. I love how she teaches tools for shifting our mindset into creating habits and behaviors that build our success.
Have gotten a lot of value out of the first episodes. Christine is a great host!
I'm an entrepreneur and I sell every day of my life. It's easy to neglect the heart side of things, but I think it's important to balance that since we're all humans on the same team. Christine does a great job providing really valuable insights!

Podcast where I talk with inspirational successful heart-centered entrepreneurs and business leaders about how they have built a wildly successful business.

So let’s dive into the second episode with the wonderful Amanda Kunkel. And let’s see what we need to do to scale to seven-figures with ease. Well, I am so excited. You are back, Amanda, welcome!
Thank you so much for having me again.
Absolutely. So that’s a great question. And I find that the women that are at six figures or multiple six figures, they are gung ho and excited, ready to scale to seven figures. And the biggest thing they come up against is exactly what you just said, Oh, well, I’ve done all this doing and yeah, I’m worried that I’m gonna get burnout by more of this doing. But what do you mean that I have to receive I have to allow there is this trigger. There’s this big I don’t wanna call the block because there really are no blocks. There’s this big trigger of, oh my goodness, but this is what got me to six figures, and if you’re asking me to give this up. What if I fail to try this thing that I’ve been never tried before. And, of course, they’ve tried it before they have leaned into their intuition throughout their life whether overtly with working with the universe, whether with an expert, or leaning into their own intuition, it comes down to a paradigm shift. This big message of what’s gotten you to where you are now has gotten you only to where you are now. This is the point of having a shedding of your own old skin old, self old way of seeing the world. And stepping into the expert of experts, who can see with discernment above everything else, and lean into their intuition, leans into allowing leads into receiving is constantly on their highway of abundance. To move forward, it is almost more of a spiritual experience than of the business side. And to be clear, absolutely, to get to those six figures, everything those with these women learned, they still have a place, there’s still always going to need to get onto social media, send emails, know how to speak to your VA. What happens is, it’s about trust, and trusting that they don’t have to do all the things and that they can relinquish control. And when these women really start to see this paradigm shift of I am stepped back from my business, or before they were like in the business, doing all the things or constantly checking in with your VA and their copywriter, and all the other various things that they could have, right? As their paradigm starts to shift, and they really lean into this. b, being the expert of experts being the receiver, they pull further back, and they almost hold their business as a separate container out in front of them instead of being in. And one of the big things that happen here is we see them hire more people to hire a bigger team. And that can also be very triggering. The biggest stumbling block is the women against themselves. Because Well, I’ve done it this way. This really worked for me. Yes, absolutely it did. That’s fabulous, says the universe. Now we’re going to ask you to do things a little bit differently. And to trust when you hire somebody, to even if it’s like, you’re somebody that sees clients, then that’s going to be somebody that sees clients for you to hire someone, trust your trust in that person. You don’t need to second-guessed it, you don’t need to micromanage, trust you trust in how you see things, that might be a difficult one. For a lot of people I know for sure that you know, letting go of control is a journey. And I don’t know if you ever finished that journey. Well, maybe when you transition to another world, but there’s always this element, especially when you want to have it as beautiful and as perfect as you can refer your clients you put so much effort in and giving that or handing it off to a team for me, but it was definitely a challenge starting to outsource things and not going back to control every single step of the journey. But just knowing Okay, it’s done. I can let go. It’s uploaded, it’s the pages published whatever. It is a journey. So how can you practice letting go of this control?
This is a technique that I called leaning into your Elite Empress. Because Yeah, we all have seven-figure business eight-figure businesses inside of us. We all have potentials out there, all potential is available to us. It’s just tapping into it. So that’s where I like to call it the Elite Empress. That woman with a multi-seven ready to get ready for the eight-figure business owner. The reason it’s called Elite is that business owners make decisions and see the world and everyday business operating in a completely different way. And their risk assessment is completely different than anybody even at six figures or below six figures. So what this is about is tapping into that Elite Empress, she’s that inner badass, and you can already feel her inside of you. This is where the universe says this paradigm shift is literally unleashing all of you into the world. Most people feel this energy down around their abdomen, it’s very strong. If you’re into the woo-woo, root chakra, that’s what it that’s where it is down by the womb, right the spot of creation. And you can do the same for men, right like that. That’s okay, the womb isn’t necessary. But for women, you can use that spot of creation to help build up that energy. And while I work individually, with women at this stage, through energy alignments, and meditations to build to stoke that fire, literally think of it a Bunsen burner on like a gas stove, that little like pilot flame. And turning it up to the pilot theme is already there. One of the ways that you can turn it up on your own, of course, is meditating on your own and feeling into it, like visualizing the flame seeing the flame breathing in and when you breathe in allowing the flame to get a bigger, more practical way of doing the universe loves like practical and energetic, more practical ways. Okay, here’s a big challenge for you to sit down and really say what you want to say in your business. I’m not talking about the this is socially acceptable for social media, or this something that my peers would say is okay, or this isn’t going to chase clients away. This is the No, no, sit down and let it all out. This is where many entrepreneurs feel like I can’t say that to the world, I will lose clients, I will, I will trigger somebody, I will have somebody you know, attack me on social media, or I could lose my whole brand when in actuality, that’s really Empress. That is your paradigm shift into seven-figures. Because the people that need you your services, your products, they’re looking to hear the real you and when you’re not the real you. That’s why you’re only at six figures. When you let all of that badass three out. That is when the Elite Empress emerges. This is very difficult for even women at multiple six figures and you can’t do that. Okay, you don’t have to, you know, go galloping the horse on the first ride. This is about maybe doing a handwritten so it’s not even online. So you can’t even accidentally post it somewhere like in a journal somewhere even handwrite out, unleash it all use bad language, use curse words, don’t worry about sentence structure like just get it all the way out there. Right. So for instance, in my copywriting, it’s like, Alright, look, honey, I love you, the universe loves you. But you’re gonna lean into some very, not hard, but in intense parts of you that do not want to be seen that do not want to be let out and recognized to get you to your seven figures. If you can’t do it, that’s okay. You can stay at six figures like there really is no judgment there. By the way, that is a fabulous accomplishment. It really is to give yourself credit for that. But if you are dedicated, have the desire, and have made the commitment to move into the seven-figures, then we’re gonna get down and dirty. We’re gonna take off the kid gloves, and we’re gonna get to the root. That is what it can look like in a copy. I swear a little bit too if you actually I write but this isn’t about placating. This is about actually. You might lose colleagues. Yeah, you might lose women or men that were your mentors but you have outgrown them. And that’s the point. When you shed all of that when your elite Empress comes out and is gloriously in the world as a flaming ball of fire. That’s not going to actually hurt anyone but it attracts right all of the mobs all of the heat in the warrant this everyone wants to be near the fire. Right? If you’ve ever gone camping, it’s where everyone goes to the fire. That’s what is happening. So there’s a lot of inner stuff. It’s not hard. Not necessarily difficult, you’re not going to be hustling. It’s going to be intense. I actually had one lady refer to it as, Oh, that moment, right before you give birth, like right before the baby crowns and comes out. It’s like that was like, Okay, I don’t have children yet. So I’m gonna take your word on it. But that sounds like a really good metaphor. And it is like the phoenix rising from the flames, except you didn’t actually have to be on fire, you just let your elite Empress out and lean into that being lean into the allowing. And the most glorious things happen.
You shed all of that when your Elite Empress comes out and you come out gloriously in the world as a flaming ball of fire.
That’s so interesting because you know, part of Heart Sells! is being authentic, being true to yourself being true to your values, while you still make invitations and you still sell and you get your soulmate clients into the door, and you have that impact. And basically, what you’re saying is when you really get to the point where you are authentic with yourself, and however you let it out in the world, but at least with yourself in a journal, in a post, if you want to, but really being honest with who you are. That’s where the magic is. Yeah. So everybody could do that, right? Everybody could take a journal sit down, or a sheet of paper that they can burn later. So and write out what they really want to say.
Yeah. And what I see happening with my program clients is, then they start including it in their copy as much as they feel comfortable. And when they see that the world hasn’t blown up around them. They’re like, Oh, well, I can add a little bit more. And then I can add a little bit more the next time. And the true switch is when all of a sudden they’re like, Oh, these clients are coming out of nowhere, then their next several pieces of whether it’s copy your offer letters, or they do a Facebook Live is so broad, authentically them because they feel safe. And it’s everybody at every level that I have read, offer letters and copy for. The universe goes No, no, here’s where you need to lean in more. Here’s where what you really need to say, here’s what you’re really thinking. Because when people are reading or talking to you in a sales conversation, watching a Facebook Live, and you’re not saying what you want to say. They kind of feel in their gut that something’s a little off, not like, Oh, this person is slimy. But more of the okay. Yeah, that’s okay, that’s cool. We’re when you are so authentically yourself. And so like, I just gave that example. So passionate, and the way you’re speaking about what you do, people are like you, because you are giving me permission to unleash all of me. And that is what I really want. When we get to the root.
I just love it. It’s so important and I how I think it helps also heal not just you but the world around you. Right. Because when we grew up, we learn to Be a good girl, be good in school, get good grades, get the grades, it’s, it’s like you’re going on a path that you most of the time haven’t even chosen. And if you’re lucky, you wake up and you make some changes. But some people never wake up, right? They kind of miss out on what they really wanted in life. They just have a compromise but not alive. And, and for me, that really makes me sad seeing those people it’s not that I do compromise from time to time, but only like on rare occasions. I don’t want to compromise anymore. I just have this one moment. And I want to be me at that moment. I don’t want to be anybody else and I want to go for my dreams. And by doing so I serve so many people that it is insane that I didn’t realize that starting that journey. I just thought well that’s kind of selfish because that’s what you get. driven into right? If you go for what you want, you’re selfish, and selfish is not good. But I think really being honest. understanding who you are and living that truth. That’s pure magic. So, so beautiful. So tell me what was the very very first thing in your life that you ever sold?
The very first thing that I ever sold in my life. Yeah. Oh, you tie-dyed t-shirt. At a lemonade stand that My neighbors and I did but do you mean in my professional?
No, really in your life like? Yeah. Do you remember how it felt when you received the money in exchange?
Oh, it was exhilarating.
Yeah, so do you think that kind of spy your entrepreneurial journey?
A little bit, I am more of the. Since I can see the way it was really hard for me to work for other people in corporations, because I was constantly saying, no, that’s not gonna work. What you need to do is,
Yeah, so you made friends fast in the corporate?
Oh, yeah, exactly. I made so many friends go fast. And ironically, my father was a business owner, and think three of his siblings were business owners, but I didn’t grow. I didn’t grow up around them. So I didn’t know that until my father pointed it out a few years ago. And I was like, Oh, so it’s in my blood, do a little bit of blood, a little bit of the universe constantly saying that’s not how people should be doing that, how they should be doing that.
And so fun. Yeah, it’s always so interesting to get into these stories, right? Because for some people, there were like, amazingly successful selling something to the neighbors. And it felt so good. And then, you know, the parents found out and they really deeply got in trouble, right. So you know, what this made to their life, or what, you know, what it helped them not to see or not to enjoy anymore because something was wrong, all of a sudden, maybe there was so much fun before. And then they’re the other stories where people just experience and it works out beautifully. Everybody loves it. So you have another energy to move forward with. And creating your own dreams or making your own dreams come true so much faster because you don’t need to go through all the other learnings. So I’m always fascinated with people’s stories. And so what does Heart Sells! mean for you?
Heart Sells? You mean? Like isn’t selling from the heart?
It’s a really good question. So my job is to really be a liaison. I sometimes directly channel from the universe, and sometimes more often, and the translator, I say, Okay, here’s what the universe is saying. And this is what it looks like, in real-time. And let me give you some business advice as a seasoned businesswoman. And if I can’t do that, like if it’s not a good match or the universe is like, No, she actually like she needs like an actual business coach right now, or she needs to and doesn’t happen as often. But it used to be okay, there. psychotherapy would be a good fit, or it’s another one. Really, it’s right now about having an actual business coach. If I can’t give what that person likes, what the universe shows me that person needs, I’m like, it’s all good. Let me give you actually I love giving referrals. I give referrals. And I don’t mean as part of like a referral program. I’m just, like, here’s who you need to contact. Here’s who I see that you need to be working with. Like, it’s, it’s okay, that is actually one of the most exciting parts is sending someone where they need to go. And then if the universe on the flip side says no, actually, this is exactly what this woman needs. And this is what’s going to help her scale her business in the fastest, easiest, most aligned path. Then I get really excited about, okay, well, let me you know, explain to you how this looks and then letting go. It really is about letting go. And being totally cool. If someone’s in great. If somebody’s not in. That’s okay. That’s all right. Everything that is meant to be will come along.
So don’t stress yourself, just be and put yourself out there so people know about you. They have the chance to talk to you and then you will know I call them my soulmate clients. So they know, I know. And then it’s an easy process.
It is in money, um, I don’t even really get on the phone or on zoom anymore, unless it’s a woman looking to come into my elite program, and she hasn’t been With me from the start and already worked with me all the way up like she’s brand new to my world.
It’s all just through interacting because I’m that person to person. And I love to give so much just content with just giving it online on Facebook Live on my private Facebook group, that the interaction has already happened. So by the time we get to the sales conversation, it simply is, Hey, is this a good fit?
Yeah, that’s, that’s what I love. It’s just it’s not about objection handling or manipulating, or I just had the conversation with someone else about the techniques where you can belittle people or you can bully them into a sale. And obviously, that’s not what you want to do. If you are heart-centered, you do definitely not want to do, and there are so many ways where it’s where it can flow, where it’s with ease and grace and confidence. And, you know, you know, they know, and you just need to figure out the terms. That’s it.
Yeah, wonderful. So for people to shift into seven figures, you brought a beautiful gift shift into seven figures with your intuition. And its body four keys to align the seven-figure business that already exists in your vibrational field. And we talked about the vibrational field and your vibration frequency in our first episode, so if you have not listened to it, I highly recommend you check that out. So tell us a little bit about what people do get when they get your free gift?
Absolutely, it is all about you leaning into your intuition because you have intuition and you have a connection with the universe. Everybody does. You don’t necessarily always need somebody outside of yourself to be saying, here’s what the universe says. So when you can lean into your intuition, and you can feel the universe, feel the support, feel the cheering on feel that, oh, hey, go in this direction, talk to that person send this email. It makes life and business feel so joyful. And I would wait, I like I would love for everyone to have that experience.
Yeah, yeah. So, so beautiful. So go get your gift. It’s on the show notes page with all the links that lead to Amanda’s I highly recommend you check her out. Because, you know, life can be so easy if you figure out how to be to let go of control and to trust so that you are in the right frequency or vibration, because everything is already there. And it’s such a beautiful thought, right to envision that each and every day. And that will help you to move forward to get your excitement up the joy, the flow. I remember like I think it was like four years ago, I spent a whole week in Sedona was just me, I just wanted my time. And I didn’t have any plans whatsoever, right? I just knew it was Sedona because I read Paulo Coelho’s book, I forgot the title. But it was something to Sedona was like, one day, I’m going to go. And then I went and I just like every day I woke up and I thought, oh, what am I gonna do today? Well, let’s check out. And I was just one week of flow. And I met amazing people, I had the most beautiful experience of just being in the flow, and transforming that to your business. Just being obviously taking some actions. But that was so impactful that ever since I think about how can I create flow? How can I make it easy? How can I be more and do less, which not always work, I have to admit, but having these thoughts is already going to help you step into that other version that you aspire to become. So I love how you shared your wisdom with us in both of these wonderful episodes. So thank you so so much, Amanda, for having been here. Final Word to finish this off.
