Official Bio

From supporting international campaigns to catering to conscious enterprises, her clients all seek the same thing: a breakthrough. And Christie delivers. Her superpower is crafting the positioning that lead to massive results, like one client who grew from zero to $15 million in under a year.

She started her digital marketing career over two decades ago and launched her company, Thrive Marketing®, when she was 24 at the birth of the internet. Since then, she’s helped transform thousands of businesses and sold $3 billion dollars in products and services (cumulative). A sought-after expert, speaker and consultant, Christie has been asked to sit on the boards of multimillion-dollar companies as well as speak at business conferences, private mastermind events and online summits around the globe.

  • Franchisors with 200+ franchisees
  • Transformational life, money and business leaders

Christie’s Impact


  • Christie has consulted and taught more than 2,000 businesses and counting.
  • She’s helped her clients make anywhere from $100K to $1M-plus in a matter of weeks.
  • Unlike other growth strategists, Christie also speaks from first-hand experience of starting, buying, selling and/or streamlining eight of her own businesses.

20 years. 8 businesses started. 5 business partners. 1000s of businesses coached.

Experience

I’ve had a long career—I’ve worked with small businesses, all the way up to a 7 billion dollar company, from international to local, spanning all types of industries.

Led a marketing team at a startup

(straight out of college) and helped them grow by 3,000% – from $100,000+ to $15MM in 5 years.

Moved on to work as VP of marketing at a $200MM company.
However, I realized my work/life balance was off—and I needed a change.
Image
Image
Going off on my own.
I took a leap of faith and left my corporate job behind, with 3 new clients.

Launch of Thrive Marketing®
My marketing agency (which is still thriving!) works with established, reputable and conscious enterprises & entrepreneurs around the globe, with revenues from 7- to 9-figures. We help them create clever approaches to their marketing, and generate attention-getting ideas for more profits. Here are a few case studies of clients who grew quickly with smart marketing strategy and positioning.

Team Work Makes the Dream Work.
Early on, I asked my husband to work with me at Thrive Marketing®. He’d just sold his business—and we’ve been working together ever since. We’ve been married for 17 years, but since we’re together pretty much 24/7, we joke that it’s really been the equivalent of 45 years.

Launch of Epic Matcha™
This is my heart + soul business, combining my love for green tea, the magic of morning rituals, and digital marketing. Epic Matcha is a direct-to-consumer ecommerce brand. Shark Tank even approached us (not the other way around!)

Contribution.

The reason I had started 8 of my own businesses was that I so fiercely wanted to create impact in the world. And then I realized that I can create impact, no matter what type of business I owned. That’s when I took a life-changing trip with my husband to Haiti. We went down with a group of entrepreneurs and built houses and fed orphans. It was one of the most transformational experiences of my life. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes!

Image
Fast Forward to Now... I had an epiphany.

My epiphany?

The more money I make as an entrepreneur, the more positive impact I can make in the world.

And I discovered something else…

Amazingly, 87% of consumers report buying products with a social and environmental benefit when given the opportunity. Customers aren’t just buying more stuff -- they’re making a difference with their dollars.

Image

And it’s not just a good idea, it’s more profitable.

A study found that “companies with a conscience” outperformed the S&P by more than 1000% over 10 years.

It’s why I’ve rewritten Ghandi’s famous quote to “BUY the change you want to see in the world.”

In fact, I believe that business will only get harder if you don’t adapt within the next 1-2 years to this new consumer trend of “making a difference with their dollars.”

I’m a multi-passionate innovator and leader—and along with my work helping multimillion dollar companies experience high growth, I've boiled down these successes to one thing:

The right Brand Positioning has the power to transform lives and bottom lines...

That’s why I love working on a holistic level to create breakthroughs in brand positioning and messaging for conscious enterprises and entrepreneurs… so they can impact their customers in the highest possible way because the business is properly expressing and articulating the RIGHT things. This renewed purpose fulfills me on the soul level because I’m empowering conscious companies to create an even bigger ripple effect.

I’ve transformed thousands of businesses and sold over a billion dollars in products and services. I’ve created a marketing agency (Thrive Marketing), a product I adore (Epic Matcha), navigated being a mother and wife (while working alongside my husband!)—and now, I’m ready to take all my experience and help conscious enterprises and people get to the next level.

My superpower is my ability to identify the small tweaks that will lead to a business breakthrough.

19 years. 8 businesses started. 5 business partners. 1000s of businesses coached.

I don’t just spout theories; I know what works (and what doesn’t). And I’ve managed to strike a balance between business & home – work & play.

She encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone to try some outside of the box approaches to my marketing strategies. Her strategy-first-tactics-second approach was exactly what I needed as I was building and growing my business.

I’ve spent the last 18 years helping businesses (and myself) uplevel. I’m married to Jared, my best friend, soul mate and business partner. And I’m a mother to two miracle babies (I’ll tell you why they’re miracle babies in a moment). I’ve figured out how to enjoy my family and personal life in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona and still grow a business – to six figures in my first year, to triple that figure in my third year, and it’s now well into the 7 figures.

Career and family is NOT an either/or decision.

I balance both. And I know YOU can balance both too.

My husband and I struggled with infertility for 7 years … and I watched my parents divorce after 30 years of marriage. These difficult events have given me an unmatched appreciation for both my family and the attention personal relationships need to thrive. I believe it to be true that, “No other success can compensate for failure in the home” (J. E. McCullough). There is NOTHING more important to me than my loved ones. 

I help creative entrepreneurs to triple their business income and impact, without sacrificing their relationships & lifestyle through:

  • Online courses with laser-focused coaching, a supportive community and accountability
  • Consulting (Done-WITH-You)
  • Marketing & Creative Services (Done-for-You)
  • VIP Strategy Days
Image Image

It’s been an epic journey – and this is my next chapter.

I’ve seen inside 1000s of businesses and I’ve also started, bought and streamlined 8 of my own businesses and successfully sold them or set them up to produce sustainable and predictable results. These businesses include:

  • A consulting business
  • Multiple services businesses
  • Two physical product ecommerce businesses
  • A Thought Leader & Coaching training company
  • A digital products ecommerce business (digital designs)
  • A media/blogging and digital publishing
  • A franchise business (brick and mortar retail)

Through those years, my husband and I have had 3 different business partners - one good, one bad, one ugly - and we’ve bought and sold (succeeded and failed at) other ventures, too.
