Acknowledge the Giftings You’ve Been Given to Influence the Marketplace!

“I think we have to give ourselves permission to adequately look at what our skills are,” explains Christina Walker, Vocal Performance Coach at Christina Walker’s Vocal Performance Studio and CEO of Christina Walker Communications. Christina was a vocal coach for twenty-two years and learned much about entrepreneurship throughout her career. Now, she has a waiting list for her ever-growing business, where she finds fulfillment in watching people improve a skill they love.

 

Christina saw a hole in the vocal coach market—how kids performed under pressure. Through her program, she teaches children how to move past the anxieties of auditions and live performances to showcase their techniques. Understanding that the “performance energy” can cause our minds to lose control, Christina uses her natural gifts to help her students work past the fear and own their performances.

 

Tune into this week’s episode of Move Forward Anyway for an inspirational conversation on using your gifts to influence the marketplace. Learn more about Christina’s shift from the missionary mindset to business, why we should utilize our natural talents, and how to choose faith over fear.
