Overcoming Challenges to Reach Your Goal: An Interview with Crystal Balas
As we move into the New Year, this interview with Crystal Balas is great motivation to achieve your goals. Since we talked, Crystal has trained for and completed the World Vision Chicago Marathon. AND she’s already registered to compete in it in 2017.
Crystal Balas describes herself as an Overcomer. She has gotten up and moved forward through many challenges in her life. After a career change, today she is a Christian Life & Leadership Coach, Personal Trainer and Exercise Instructor. She focuses on healthy lifestyles, working with female baby boomers that are rejuvenating their identity and life as they transition into the second half of life.
She says, “I’m a better me today than I was in my twenties. I’m healthier physically, spiritually and mentally today.”
Crystal shares her journey from abused wife to single mom to working woman to entrepreneur. Over the years, God and her community of faith have been constants in her life. Listen as Crystal tells her story. Her message of hope and resilience in the face of major challenges will encourage you on your own journey as a Bold & Courageous Leader.
Her parting thought for us is, “If I can do it, you can do it, too!”
