EP 283-The Energy Muffin, Oprah, Me

Emotional Mindset, Podcast

Welcome to an incredibly inspiring journey through the power of curiosity and its transformative impact on one woman’s life. In this podcast episode, Christine takes us on a delightful ride, sharing her personal story of the “energy muffin” – a culinary creation born out of a desire to provide healthier snacks for her kids amid the chaos of junior league football snacks involving Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and walking Fritos. Her genuine curiosity led her to the unexpected opportunity to pitch her muffins to Whole Foods, a journey filled with nervous excitement and an unexpected twist that defines the essence of curiosity.


The magic of Christine’s storytelling extends beyond muffins. She also shares how curiosity opened the door to being a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show, revealing the astonishing journey that began with a simple email after watching a Dr. Phil segment. Through these stories, Christine invites us to ponder the role of curiosity in our lives, urging us to ask ourselves, “I wonder what would happen if…?” She emphasizes the importance of visualizing success and feeling the positive emotions associated with it, making the case that curiosity not only neutralizes fear but propels us toward our aspirations.


As Christine candidly explores the impact of curiosity on her health and wellness journey, she encourages listeners to embrace curiosity as a powerful tool for personal and professional growth. This podcast episode is a heartfelt reminder that curiosity is not just a fleeting emotion but a guiding force that can lead us to incredible opportunities and self-discovery. So, buckle up and join Christine on this engaging exploration of curiosity and its remarkable ability to reshape our lives.
