I hope you are enjoying this Christmas Season 🙂 Make sure you do something or a few things that make you happy/put a gigantic smile on your face/heart!
As a movie lover, I love cuddling up on the couch with a nice Christmas blanket and watch a feel good Christmas movie! Each movie I have seen thus far amplifies the need to reflect on your core values or your personal priority list. During this time of the season your core value can definitely be challenged or put to the test. Why? because you may have a demanding job, boss/manager, etc. However, I encourage you to take time and reflect on what’s important to you in this season of your career, business, or life in general. (P.S. Check out one of my recent podcast episodes entitled,
Additionally, I love to take the time to reflect on how God has been to me, my family, my friends, and those attached to me. God has definitely been showing out by being the ultimate provider, healer, friend I need in this season of my life. I encourage you to take a few minute, hours, or even days to reflect on how you have encountered God’s greatness throughout this year.
May God bless you and your family during this Christmas season!
I hope you’re doing! So let’s jump into this blog 🙂 As you know God is always downloading a message in my spirit on a regular basis; therefore, I just had to to get this message out ASAP! God literally revealed to me that we as His children operate with unhealthy motives in certain seasons of our lives. For example you unhealthy motives are ones that are driven by anger, fear, sadness in one moment, unfulfilled need for acceptance, and/or power.
Hmmmm have your motives in your career journey or even in your business been unhealthy? I’ll admit mines have at one point BUT my motives are now healthy! I discuss this more during the latest podcast episode entitled, “Hashtag Check Your Motives”. Click HERE to tune in to the Peculiar Career Chit Chat and learn tips on how to develop your healthy motives in your career journey 🙂
It’s YOUR turn to let your light shine! That’s right I’m turning the spotlight on professionals like you during the Faith Over Facts Career Spotlight Series!
The series will officially rollout again on Wednesday, November 3, 2021! Last year this series took off and sooo many people were encouraged and empowered by the discussions; therefore, I’m excited to release it again!
My goal is to spotlight at least 10 individuals who embody the 5 Pillars of Career Acceleration!
If you’re not familiar with the 5 Pillars of Career Acceleration I teach on, check them out below:
–Strive to thrive and not just survive in their 9 to 5 career journey –Focus more on their faith than the facts to overcome career challenges/obstacles –Value being authentic within their career journey –Cherish maintaining their sanity in their work life –Believe being peculiar is a strategy to ‘level up’ in their career journey
So, in all transparency, I simply want the world to hear your testimony and be uplifted to pursue their career goals.
Will you accept my invitation to spotlight your career??? (P.S. you have a story to tell so tell it!) To accept this invitation simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
That was the mindset (aka the jobseeker mindset) of my client and exactly what my client said since she was literally hearing crickets when submitting her resume for new career opportunities.
Of course I LOL’d , agreed with her and proceeded to strategically offer her resume suggestions and customized edits during her “Resume Audit Session”.
After our session, she immediately updated her resume using the techniques recommended.
Then…I kid you not…literally a week later she emailed me saying “Just wanted to give you an update. I have 3 interviews scheduled for positions with the new resume that I updated and used your techniques.”
Of course I did a quick shout and screamed with excitement for her…. Mission accomplished!!!
My client literally went from no interviews to 3 interviews in just 1 week!!!
I absolutely LOVE seeing my clients win and get closer to reaching their career goals!
My question to you is ‘will you be the next person I assist in reaching their career goals???
Did you tune in to the latest episode of my podcast, Peculiar Career Chit Chat? Well if you haven’t yet, it’s a must HEAR!! It’ll lift your spirits and get you motivated to truly go after your career goals!
Year 2 is that you??? Happy Leap of Faith Anniversary to me…I’m a witness to how God truly honors your obedience..
So as I celebrate year 2 of fully transitioning into a different career field that truly ignites my soul, I encourage you to go after what your heart desires. No, it won’t be easy but it’ll be worth it!
My book, Soul Ignition, was birth from my career transition period so here’s a few words of encouragement to ignite your soul to move to your next level in life:
“GIVE NOTICE” to yourself that you deserve the best and nothing less
”TRUST THE PROCESS” God is taking you through that will mold you into who He has called you to be.
The “EVICTION OF FEAR” is essential for your elevation to a place or venture God has prepared for you
Believe “RESILIENCE” is a part of your DNA (trust me you will need that ingredient of yourself during life’s journey)
Remember “THE COST OF AN IDLE MIND” is too expensive especially if it leaves you with regrets…(p.s. just do it sis or bruh)
Embrace the “TEARS AND CHEERS” throughout the shifts of life but just know the cheers will be louder than your tears
Last but not least “LAUGH IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY” as you reach new heights in your career, business, and life in general.
……..Now go forth and become the best version of you…I believe in you -Crystal

Did YOU know you were created for greatness??? I just wanted to stop by to remind you of this very fact because it’s so easy to dwell on the negative facts but not the positive facts of life.
Also, did you know that YOU are the answer to someone’s prayers!!! The gift God has given you is meant to be a resource to help someone in need…to help the corporations/organization seeking your skillset, your work ethic, and your unique personality!
-Display your greatness in your work environment regardless if you’re working from home due to COVID or going in to work on a daily basis! Whether you believe it or not someone prayed for the skillsets and greatness YOU bring to the table! So go do YOU unapologetically in the workplace and let your light shine so bright that others will see it (Matthew 5:16)
