Episode 273: YQD Success Stories: How Christine Started Her Coaching Side Hustle | Christine Vega-Perez

Christine Vega-Perez is a Decision Making & Accountability Life Coach and a Registered Nurse with extensive experience in the healthcare sector since 2007. She holds a Master’s of Science in Nursing in Healthcare Systems Management. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, she recently relocated with her family to Jacksonville, Florida. Christine is of half Mexican and half Guatemalan descent, while her husband is of Dominican descent. They have two young sons, aged 2 and 4, who keep them on their toes.

With her background in healthcare, Christine has amassed considerable expertise in quality improvement, a fundamental aspect of nursing and healthcare. This field is continually striving for improvement due to its critical nature of dealing with people’s lives. This insight led Christine to contemplate applying the strategies she learned in healthcare to the most crucial industry of all—personal lives. As she has grown older, Christine finds herself increasingly using these tools because adulthood necessitates taking risks and making important, often stressful, decisions. Her goal is to help others make decisions that lead to happiness, whatever form that may take.

Christine shares strategies combined with mindset work to navigate life’s decision-making situations. By learning these tools, individuals can feel calm, confident, and competent to face all challenges.

This week, we’re celebrating the success stories of one of our former students who has gone through the Ultimate Side Hustle Starter Kit course.

We interview Christine Vega-Perez, a Decision Making & Accountability Life Coach who started her business after taking the course. We discuss the mindset blocks and fears that come with starting a business, the importance of support and community, and the financial aspects of entrepreneurship.

Christine also shares her journey of evolving her business and finding the courage to pursue her dreams while working a full-time job and being a mom. We touch on the value of investing in yourself and the power of starting a side hustle.
