Being a parent and an entrepreneur simultaneously can be challenging yet rewarding. Balancing the responsibilities of parenthood with the demands of running a business requires effective communication, active listening, and strategic time management.

She discusses how she applies the same principles to her children, particularly emphasizing the value of being a good listener. Christine sets a positive example by actively listening to her children without interruptions, encourages them to express their thoughts and feelings, and incorporates active listening exercises into their daily routines. By fostering effective communication skills and strong relationships within her family, Christine believes that these practices benefit her children and align with her entrepreneurial mindset of building meaningful connections and nurturing growth in both her personal and professional life.
