2017 will be an amazing year, I can feel it. It will also be the year of change for me, as I am anticipating major changes on the work front and possibly a move on the personal front. I am excited!

Warning: This article is real and might totally ruffle some feathers. Warning #2: Seriously, I’m going to let it all out in this one and, whether you agree or disagree, what I’m sharing has been experienced by many tall women (including myself) and needs to be talked about.

Hello, Gorgeous! I’m jazzed you’re here! My name is Christiana, and I’m a 6’5” Recovering Perfectionist, Coffee Purist, and Women’s Success Coach. I eat, sleep, and breathe everything personal development! (and coffee…I love coffee) Growing up, I tried to be as close to “perfect” as I could, never questioning the rules and always following them.
