But you have to keep following that calling and going through open doors.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast“Clarity is overrated.” –Chantal Pierrat Emerging Women Podcast“Being clear on what you know about yourself and where your delights are is one thing. But I think we have this mistaken view of clarity as I know exactly how this is going to end… for most of us, we’re just winging it.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast“I was so in tuned with what everyone else thought of me that it was hard for me to even acknowledge how unhappy I was in [my corporate job].” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast“A lot of us are really scared to look at that divine messaging, the divine connection, because it may take us in a more uncomfortable direction. And looking deep within is uncomfortable.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast“For three years, people thought I was a complete and utter loser, and I had to walk through that fire… nobody could see the growth that was going on.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast“We learn intuition by doing things” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast“Our power is everywhere. We think it’s this Wonder Woman sort of a vibe, and it’s not. It is so subtle, and it requires this real relentless honesty with ourselves about why we’re doing what we’re doing.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast“We have this addiction in our world that every decision ...

#45 Secretly Sensitive, Soul Sourced Entrepreneurs wanted here! Interview with Christine Kane
The Industry Rockstar Show with Kane & Alessia
Christine Kane is a magnificent coach that has helped thousands of Entrepreneurs find their Soul's journey and focus on how to bring that out to the world. Prior to founding her company Uplevel You, Christine had a fifteen-year career in the music industry. She was an American folk singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist, and she produced seven albums under her own label, Firepink—selling more than 100,000 copies. Her album "Rain & Mud & Wild & Green" (2002) was named Best Folk Album by Borders Books and Music. Her concert DVD, Live at the Diana Wortham Theatre won a Telly Award. And Country star Kathy Mattea recorded Kane's song "Right Out of Nowhere" (written with Steve Seskin). Christine has appeared with John Mayer, The Beach Boys, Los Lobos, Nanci Griffith, and Shawn Colvin, among many others. So many different talents, so little time to explore them all. However, Alessia Minkus does a powerful interview with Christine, sharing her secrets of building a 7 Figure Coaching Business helping others find their Soul Journey!
Meet Christine Kane Before Christine Kane founded what became a multi-million dollar coaching company, she spent fifteen years in the music industry, producing seven CDs and a DVD on her own label while touring the globe over 200 days a year. She shared the stage with luminaries like John Mayer, The Beach Boys, Los Lobos, Nanci Griffith, and Shawn Colvin. Her success as a singer-songwriter had fans asking how she did it while staying true to her art and her soul. Those backstage questions turned into weekend retreats. Those retreats turned into coaching requests - and set her on a new path. In 2010, Kane opened Uplevel You, a company that serves the ever-growing class of sensitive, idea-driven, aggression-averse entrepreneurs (a class she counts herself a member of). She has really worked to change the definition of entrepreneur. Her work has attracted more than 125,000 loyal email subscribers and has coached thousands of clients into the six and seven figures in their businesses. She has spoken at events from the Martha Beck annual conference to the iconic Emerging Women event. Today, Christine leads a small yet mighty team at Uplevel World Headquarters in Asheville, North Carolina. I loved Christine's raw authenticity, soulful slant on life and business, and the beautiful combination of owning her power and humility. I was quite inspired by Christine's decision to leave her successful singing and performing career to follow the nudges of her soul to help sensitive, creative and ambitious entrepreneurs integrate the delicate balance of soul and strategy. If this resonates even a little bit, you're going to love this interview. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and get ready to hang with Christine and me for a cozy and delicious conversation. The 3 A's We talked about the importance, especially for those 'quick start' high energy types, to pause before any talk, engagement, activity, or even a meal to get clear on your intention. Christine shared her soulful intention, the 3 A's, as she calls it, where she wishes awakeness, awareness, and abundance for all involved. I loved these 3 A's and thought they might inspire you as well. Soul + Strategy Christine Kane's book, The Soul-Sourced Entrepreneur, both goes into her personal story as well as the frameworks she teaches to help what she calls the 'highly creative, secretly sensitive and wildly ambitious' to excel, succeed and build a career and life that comes from both strategy and the soul. This is not just about having a great mindset, as what's often overlooked is connecting with the richness and lessons from our soul. This book and words of wisdom are for the new class of entrepreneurs who want to incorporate soul-filled wisdom and honor some of the most significant overlooked assets: intuition, sensitivity, and creativity. Don't Tolerate Mediocrity. Listen to Your Soul. We have to start learning to tell the truth, meaning our own personal truth. As human beings, we want to fit in, and sometimes when listening to your soul's calling, it will have you take a different course than expected. Christine shares her experience of this after realizing she didn't want to be a renowned singer and performer and instead felt called to serve in a different way through coaching and guiding others. If you simply tolerate your life because it feels comfortable or you're scared of what others think, just realize that it will only get worse to keep accepting a life you don't absolutely love. Tapping into your truth will help you get tuned in and stop deflecting what your soul knows to be right for you. Being able to release these fixed mindsets and listen to your soul is what will move you towards your higher calling. Living a Soul Sourced® Life Christine shared her ways of staying in alignment with her best self, which has a different look to it than in years past. Her daily routine of self-connection is about finding time to meditate (but not being rigid about it). Also, embodying that every day is sacred, reading something spiritual, and offering prayers to remember who she is. She makes time to lift weights to stay physically strong and shows up as present as possible. Doing silent meditation retreats and other inner work have been game-changers for her life. Today she welcomes the natural ebbs and flows of being her most authentic self. Being your You-est You® As Christine describes it, it's a natural way of being and an organic way to navigate the world. Start by trusting your life and soul. It will all show you where to go. Sacred Connection As always, this community is a sacred, safe place built on love and acceptance. It was created to help you evolve and expand into your highest self.

The Entrepreneur Way
Christine Kane is the founder of Uplevel You™, a multimillion-dollar business coaching company based in Asheville, NC, which was a natural evolution from her 15-year career as a touring singer-songwriter with her own record label. Both businesses were built from scratch without a single investor. Learning as she went, Kane did it all step-by-step and now shares this wisdom with her clients, so they finally get it, apply it, and succeed on their own terms. Her company’s masterminds, trainings, and events draw entrepreneurs from around the world. “at its core your business is the territory of your own personal growth or your soul’s growth if you want to put it that way… I would say to keep that in mind. What that means is that your business is always speaking to you. Your business is always calling you out of your stuck spots, your conditioning and waking you up if you let it and if you can trust that”…[Listen for More] Click Here for Show Notes To Listen or to Get the Show Notes go to https://wp.me/p6Tf4b-82c
Curt interviews Christine Kane, author of "The Soul-Sourced Entrepreneur." Business owners are told they must be strategy-driven, data-led, aggressive, even manipulative -- to be successful. They see "Crush It!", "10X It!", "Unfk It!" as popular titles shouting from every bookstore shelf they pass. Entrepreneurs who aren't crushers are unfkers of anything are left wondering what's wrong with them. Like, maybe they're just not cut out for this business thing after all. In "The Soul-Sourced Entrepreneur," Christine calls BS on this paradigm. Jettisoning the usual mindset advice, she lays out a bold and unconventional plan for a new class of entrepreneur -- one that honors intuition, sensitivity, and creativity as assets, not liabilities.
