Christina Glickman is an industry disruptor, entrepreneur, and author. Driven by her calling to help women find their confidence and life purpose, Christina authored the Amazon bestseller, Xtra: The Art of Being, where she shares her love of fashion and her philosophy of living in your truth and expression. Christina is a staunch advocate for health-protective laws and cleaner cosmetics. As Managing Director of Beautycounter, Christina leads a team of consultants to deliver the organization’s mission of educating consumers about the need for safer products in the beauty industry.

Christina joins me today to share how she discovered and cultivated her unapologetic confidence and why she is passionate about helping women find their bold expression. She reveals the biggest hindrances to women’s success and explores the idea of being in contrast to doing. She illustrates how she imparts to her children the courage to be who they are and the power of believing in yourself. She also discusses how pain can transform our sense of self and highlights how failure is an essential part of the progress toward success.

“Being yourself is one of the hardest things you can possibly do. But once you do it, it’s so much easier than to pretend.” - Christina Glickman
