Hey, Soul Sister! Gangster in the Spotlight Series with Chrissy Roil
I’m so excited to have Chrissy as the second guest in my monthly Hey, Soul Sister! Gangster in the Spotlight Series
Chrissy and I have fast become great friends + biz besties, having so much in common – including both being ’86 models! I’m even lucky enough to stay with Chrissy and her beautiful family when I’m on the Gold Coast! #Grateful
I love watching Chrissy live a life that she loves! Consciously creating a life that fulfills her on every level and to empower other women to do the same. Chrissy believes life’s too short to not be stepping into our true potential and power – and I couldn’t agree more!
Tell us a bit more about yourself and your journey – who you are and who you were before the Gratitude Gang & The Conscious Collective?
Before I joined the Gang I was working as a Business Development Manager in the corporate world. I’ve had what I like to refer to as a ‘taste tester’ of a life – I’ve pursued multiple passions and received qualifications in all sorts (psychology, criminology, commercial law, early childhood education and makeup artistry). I did what I was ‘supposed to’, I went to University, got the degrees and settled down in the corporate world where I gave it my all and strived for success, growth and financial reward…society’s standards of ‘success’ but I knew deep down that this wasn’t the path for me!
I’m originally from New Zealand and moved to the Gold Coast 5 years ago and when I moved here I didn’t have the same supportive friendships here that I did back home so for many years I was always calling in for more likeminded soul sisters.
How did the GG and TCC come into your life – why did you join in the first place?
So 6 weeks after having my son I tuned into a webinar that Ange hosted on post natal depletion and totally resonated with so much of what she was saying. Ange mentioned in her webinar that she was taking a wholefood supplement and had this new found energy and all these other amazing benefits. I wanted what she had so I reach out for more information. Within a couple weeks of starting on the products I noticed all the amazing benefits that Ange was talking about so when I was presented with an opportunity to join the Gang a couple of weeks later and start an online business sharing my experience I thought why not! I knew that I didn’t want to return to the corporate world once my maternity leave had expired and miss out on spending my days with Koa so I thought this could be the thing that could keep me home!
What has changed in your life since joining? What have you been able to achieve?
So much has changed! When my maternity leave expired in February of this year, I was able to resign from my role and not have to return back to the corporate world! Instead choosing mum care as I am now able to help contribute to our finances and lifestyle so it’s not all falling on my husbands shoulders!
That in itself is amazing but personally I have changed too! I’ve grown so much as a person – I’m more confident, comfortable being uncomfortable (cause that’s where the growth is right, outside our comfort zone!), I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been!
I’ve also made some really beautiful new likeminded girlfriends and reconnected with old friends.
What do you love most about the GG and TCC?
Where do I start! Everything, literally haha. I love that I am now able to stay home with my son and watch him grown and develop. I love what I do now for my ‘job’ – which is so fun and heart-centred. It feels good to be working in a job that is aligned with my values and I love that I can positively impact the lives of others. I love the connection and community. The GG community is something else, I have a gang of likeminded women cheering me on and supporting me to reach my goals and build my dream life.
What are you excited about for the future? What’s the big dream?!
I’m so excited for the future because I know that this only just the beginning! To see what others around me have created through this business just blows me away and I can’t wait to create that for my family! The big dream is to build a legacy business that can be passed onto Koa and generations to come and in doing so means that I’ve accomplished my dreams of helping thousands of people step into their true power and potential and that are now living a life that they chose.
Message to people thinking about joining and upleveling their health, wealth and lifestyle?
Just say yes, you have nothing to lose! The worst that can happen is you get a little healthier and the best is that you have everything to gain… abundance, community, connection, health. If your heart is feeling the pull and you’re attracted to the Gang for one reason or another then get your questions answered and learn a little more. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I’m so grateful that I gave it a chance!!
