74: Christina Hills, Empowering People to Move Their Business Forward

Daniel Giordano

SUMMARY:

On this episode of the All-In Podcast, Daniel speaks with Christina Hills, formerly the Shopping Cart Queen and now an entrepreneur passionate about empowering people to move their businesses forward.

Christina shares her background and how she came from a demanding career in the film and television industry to being a work-from-home mom helping clients to create websites and online courses to move their business forward. She and Daniel discuss what it’s like to be entrepreneurial parents with the desire to spend more time at home with kids.

As Christina built her own business, she notes that one of the biggest challenges was figuring out what was a good opportunity and what was not a good opportunity. She says that there is tons of business to be had, you simply have to discern which opportunities are right for you and which ones you need to let go.

One of the big takeaways for listeners considering exiting their career or launching something new is the Saturday Morning Test, which Christina explains in this episode. Does what you want to launch get you excited enough to get out of bed on a Saturday morning? She reminds listeners that you don’t have to be an expert, you just have to really like the market you’re in and turn to the expertise you need.

At the end, Christina and Daniel talk about the spiritual aspect of business, what sort of people her business tends to attract, trusting your gut, and letting the right clients find their way to you.

  • “There’s tons of business out there, you just have to be good at discerning: ‘Is this one right for me or should I let it go?’ That’s the hardest part about being an entrepreneur.”
  • “Websites – they’re digital but they do have vibrations, right? They communicate something to people.”
