Christine Comaford-Lynch has a new book coming out called “: How To Make More Money, Rock Your Career, And Revel in Your Individuality. She is also offering tons of free resources (downloadable PDF format) on her new Renegades site. I especially like the “New Illusion Worksheet” which guides you through a series of questions to design your new self-identity. Per Christine, Everything is an illusion. Pick the one that is fun. Don’t let anyone to set your values for you.
I had the privilege to meet Christine twice this past year. She is an amazing speaker with very high energy and some impressive accomplishments.
Once a high school drop out, teenage runaway, Buddhist monk, lingerie model, geisha trainee, software engineer and hospice worker, Christine became an entrepreneur at the age of 27. She is a five-time CEO and company founder—and all five businesses grew to be either acquired or taken public. She has 20 years’ experience in high-tech companies including Microsoft, Lotus, Adobe, and Apple. She has assisted 700 of the Fortune 1,000 companies and 300 small businesses in accelerating innovation, and has consulted with the Clinton and Bush Administrations on technology and small business strategies.
Christine successfully retired when she was only 40 years old. She recently founded Mighty Venture to help people to discover both their personal and business potential in a fun and effective way.
