    Meet Our Coaches

    Christina Bolden

    Emboldened Enterprises LLC

    Meet Christina Bolden, a highly intuitive, empowering, and dedicated Career Coach who elegantly gets to the heart of the matter. Christina works with her clients to progress beyond what they think themselves capable of. She is a wunderkind at helping professionals identify what is holding them back and unearthing their potential to achieve the careers they want and deserve. 

    With over 15 years of management experience, Christina has hired, led, and inspired diverse teams. She has always especially enjoyed encouraging her team members to grow their strengths and move toward greatness. 

    Christina specializes in partnering with clients who have suspended their careers and are now ready to return to the workforce. She expertly guides them in the pursuit of finding their purpose and shows them how to leverage their non-traditional career path to create a new and thriving career.

    One of Christina’s happy places is in her yard pulling weeds and dandelions.  She will tell you that when you are weeding, you must get at their roots, much like her approach to coaching. Christina is an avid reader and is a self-proclaimed foodie.  

    You should work with Christina if you are: 

    • A professional looking to grow your career or pivot industries
    • A returning-to-work mom or caretaker

    “When I was referred to Christina at Career Winners Circle, I was at a point in my career where I needed to make a drastic pivot but felt stuck about how to go about making it. Job search and career planning was not a skill I excelled in. I dreaded the entire process. Just the thought of it left me defeated. Christina listened intently as I shared my concerns, fears, and priorities at every one of our sessions. She provided a firm push and gentle nudge as needed. She connected with me not only as a client but also as a fellow human being. She solicited help from her network on my behalf and provided timely feedback on my work along the way. At the end of our session, I was pleasantly surprised to report, that while I still don’t love job search, I am prepared to tackle it head-on. I no longer feel defeated. I can honestly say the coaching and guidance provided by Christina has been empowering. I am grateful to her for getting me out of my funk and putting me in a position to thrive and bet on myself again. Christina is a natural at helping others see the best in themselves. Thank you and I wish you nothing but the absolute best in your journey.”
