According to Wikipedia, Personal development is defined as activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital, facilitate employability, and enhance the quality of life and the realization of dreams and aspirations.
Personal development is therefore, the process of striving to be the best that you can be in order to reach and realize your full potential.

Meet Christine


I first developed a thirst for personal development, at the age of 47 when I had gone back to school to complete my Bachelor’s Degree. Having raised two teenage daughters, and successfully ran two businesses, I felt as though I was at a plateau. I committed to volunteer positions at various Community organizations, as though they were full time positions, and kept feeling the urge that I was meant to accomplish more. My thirst for reaching my potential was boundless!

There became my journey of self-discovery, self-improvement and self realization!

Twenty plus years later, I have established a multi-faceted career path through Corporate arenas, Hospitality, Healthcare, and eventually, followed my Soul’s calling as a Coach, and Founded the R.I.S.E. Movement, a global movement  to educate, inspire and empower men and women to Reclaim their Inner Soul Energy, so they can create a life of Purpose, Passion and Prosperity! 

Shortly thereafter, as a means to share that message, I founded Successful Life Transitions, offering Life Transformation and Personal Development Workshops, Programs and Seminars for Corporations, Organizations and Conferences.

Getting totally clarity on what I wanted for my life, and committing to taking the massive action to get there, has been the major catalyst moving me through some major bumps in the road. And, now, I’ve been guiding so many others through major transitions and transformation for a number of years, and have developed the strategies for major results.

“At first I fought the changes. Resisting anything that didn’t seem to fit the world ‘according to Christine…’ It wasn’t until I started to release the resistance, work on myself and learn to embrace and understand the changes, that my life started to move forward.”

– Christine Catoggio
