Hey guys! 👋
Thanks for swinging by. I'll try not to bore you too much – but wanted to introduce myself and thank you for visiting. I'm Chris and I run/am Sweaty Wisdom. I'm also a yoga teacher, paddle boarder, graphic designer, wellness junkie, newlywed, Michigander dog Mom. I get lit up by helping overwhelmed entrepreneurs raise their virtual vibe and build a buzz on social media.
How did you get here?
Well... how much time do you have? 😂 I'll keep it short – about 10 years ago, I was working at a global ad agency in Chicago. Although my incredibly smart and talented team was inspiring and invigorating, I knew it my gut that my work life balance (or lack thereof) was unsustainable. I felt lost – like I had lost my spark and was misaligned with my true purpose (though I had no clue what it was at the time). I was only in my mid-twenties, but I was experiencing BURNOUT.
Something had to give. I needed to get my zest back. So, I decided to take a leap of faith. I moved back to the loving arms of my home state, Michigan, and went full-time freelance. I started a graphic design studio for my freelance work, started teaching yoga and diving deeper into my own wellness journey, and blogged about the intersection of the two through a secret moniker –"Sweaty Wisdom".
I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
I started blogging because I couldn’t not. Sweaty Wisdom was never about making money – I kept it a secret for over two years. I simply needed a creative outlet for all the changes I was experiencing in my life. But my “little secret” quickly picked up steam. The next thing I knew, I was selling products. And then, I was seeing them featured on OPRAH (all hail) and in publications I loved, like Cosmo and Glamour.
What started as my secret side hustle has since scaled into a full-time gig, where I am lit up everyday by helping entrepreneurs thrive in their business AND feel great through online education, like courses and coaching.
Though looking back I feel like I blinked and everything changed, I realize there was a whole helluva a lot of trial & error along the way.
You name a mistake – I promise you, I made it.
But you know? That’s what has made it all so special.
Now, I’m focused on helping people move from the scary place of not knowing where to start to here, where you can pursue your passion AND maintain a well lifestyle.
