The birthday surprise that my awesome team had waiting on my desk when I arrived! :)
Thank you for all of the happy greetings and messages and sweet gifts you sent on my birthday! My team even surprised me with flowers and amazing cupcakes from Asheville's Short Street Cakes (my favorite - their gluten free cupcakes are the best!).
I spent the day doing lots of reflecting on what I want to create during the coming year - as well as feeling a deep sense of gratitude for my life and the amazing people in it. (Like YOU!) I LOVE taking time on birthdays for silence and contemplation, don't you?

"I am living proof that it is absolutely possible to do what I love and making a living doing it!"
"The hardest part about the Uplevel Event for me was getting there! I hadn't flown in 10 years because of my fear of flying - but I wanted to take the chance because I KNEW in my heart I could do the very things Christine speaks about in her videos - that I could take my healing work to the next level and reach more people.
Well, I'm so glad I found the courage - because it was only the beginning! Slowly but surely, I have created more and more success in my massage practice - adding workshops and retreats - and yoga. After taking Uplevel Your Business, my financial goal for the year was easily reached and surpassed. I am living proof that it is absolutely possible to do what I love and making a living doing it!"

How to Get Testimonials that Get You Clients
by Christine Kane
If you don't feel comfortable selling yourself, then here's some good news...
Client testimonials can effortlessly bring you more sales and more qualified prospects.
That's because your clients sell you better than you can. Client success stories create trust and prove your credibility. They speak to your prospect's doubts and desired results. They create community.
Then why do business owners resist using testimonials? Why do people neglect to ask for testimonials from their clients?
Sometimes it's laziness or forgetfulness.
More often than not, they've bought into the "play small" mindset that keeps solo-businesses stuck at the same level year after year. They're nervous to appear boastful or to market their client successes.
If you won't create marketing systems that share your awesomeness with the world, then you're leaving a lot of money on the table.
Get over it. Get some testimonials. And post them for all to see!
Here are my top tips for getting great client testimonials that will Uplevel your Business™ and your sales...
#1 - Get results!
Obviously, you have to provide great service to your clients and know that they are indeed getting great results.
If you're new to your business and haven't gotten results yet, consider offering a "pilot program" for a small group. In exchange for your free services, you can request testimonials (as well as valuable feedback!) after your program is over.
#2 - Know WHEN to Ask
