Mastering Negotiation and Leveraging Relationships

She expertly navigated her way in a world dominated by businessmen and has owned several businesses including two bars, her own Webcam site, and a cannabis dispensary.
Making It Despite All Odds
Having been in the modeling industry for almost two decades, Christine saw the destruction and downfall of many models who had taken the industry by storm before her. She also saw the dark side of modeling, where women would stoop so low and compromise on their integrity just to get to the top. Instead of taking the same road, Christine chose to be independent and fight her way up the social and business ladder with dignity.. That is how she was able to make herself into a boss at a very tender age. . When Christine became a mother she was still able to manage multiple businesses on her own without any help. Even while she was pregnant and unable to work as a model, she was able to live off of the savings that she had built. She lived frugally and that mindset and lifestyle afforded her the ability to keep her stability and success in the long run.
