What does it mean to you to “Have It All”?
Karine: To “have it all” means stepping into your divine femininity, being the leader you were born to be “the CEO of your life”, being grateful for everyday and giving back 10 fold what was given to you.
Scariest/bravest thing you’ve ever done?
Karine: The most recent scary/brave thing I did was pack all my favorite things and move to Mexico with my boyfriend and our dog. We left the comfort of what we knew and started a new life in Mexico. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. Now I encourage myself to do a “scary thing” weekly to keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
What’s your driving force, your guiding mission or vision?
Karine: Great question! A deep desire to always keep becoming the better version of myself is my driving force. I am keenly aware that we are gifted one life and tomorrow is not promised. So I want to live this life to the fullest and enhance the life of whoever I encounter.
What does being successful mean to you?
Karine: Success to me means freedom. Time and location freedom and financial freedom.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Karine: To stop doubting myself! Believe, have faith, and stay rooted in my truth.
3 key words to describe yourself:
Karine: Passionate, driven, and kind
Do you have a go-to beauty look?
Yes! I love the super natural and bare look 😉 too much makeup makes me uncomfortable and I feel like I’m not myself. So I like to keep it natural and glowy.
And finally what makes a woman beautiful?
Karine: A woman is beautiful when she’s able to see the goddess in herself and uplift other women by reflecting their goddess back to them. Woman are so powerful, I love when a women recognizes that in herself and uses it to spread love and strengthen other women.
