Your story and message deserve a world stage
Let me show you how to take your skills from the workplace to the marketplace.
Let's be honest...
You are a superhero. As professionals, parents, business owners, entrepreneurs, authors, executives, and everything in between, you spend your day devoted to helping to better the lives of those around you.
As you reflect, at the end of the day, you realize that something is missing -- that you haven't given any time to developing yourself or pursuing your closest held dreams and visions.
You've finally reached the point in your career where you're tired of feeling stuck, overlooked and underpaid for all that you bring to the table.
Have you ever stopped to think about what would happen if you took the time to intentionally invest making your dreams a reality?
HERE'S WHAT I KNOW ABOUT YOU
YOU ARE CALLED
You know that on most occasions, you are the most qualified person in the room. People seek you for counsel because you KNOW your stuff! Your story and experience is powerful, but you aren't able to share it at a level that impacts change.
YOU DON'T FIT IN
You have great ideas, but you don't have a clear plan on how to implement. That means you are like most visionaries. You need helping on figuring out "what to do" and "how to start." In your heart you know that you are a valuable asset but you are underpaid and undervalued for the amount of work that you do.
YOU HAVE A DESIRE TO IMPACT
I firmly believe that the world needs what only you can provide. Your opportunity may be locked in those frustrating thoughts that tell you "you waited too long to start," "you're not good enough," or that "you've failed so much before". Let me be the first to say, it's never too late to pursue what you were created to accomplish.

You will meet weekly in a small online cohort, after-hours, to work in-depth through a structured framework that takes your skills from the workplace to the marketplace, and positions you for accelerated opportunities and increased income and impact.
This high-level, live training program is for serious working professionals, new, aspiring and growing professionals, leaders. entrepreneurs, speakers and those looking to maximize their income and impact, while managing their time...QUICKLY.

You were "meant to do more" but you don't know "what" it is you want to do.
Despite achievements in your career and family, you still feel like something is missing.
You are overlooked, underpaid, overworked or overwhelmed in your current job.

KNOWN Is For You If ...
People Operations, Google
Founding Team, Medcetera
I hired Christina to help me find a new role that challenged my skill and gave me the freedom to build my own brand and business. In working with Christina I gained clarity on my brand narrative, secured a job at Google, increased my salary by 80% (adding $89,000 to my income), and launched my organization in time to compete in a $500,000 pitch competition. Christina was well worth the investment and my returns are a result.
With You in Mind
Step-by-step instruction that gives you all that you need to turn your dream into a reality.
I'm Christina Joy Whittaker, your business and leadership development coach. I crafted KNOWN as an intimate, safe-space for accomplished professional women who need a fresh new perspective.
Branding is in my DNA, I consider it my superpower. I spent more than 10 years as a sought-after communications and marketing expert for some of the largest companies in the world including The Walt Disney Company, NBA, Deloitte Consulting, and Sony, and I know how it feels to climb the corporate ladder and feel perpetually stuck and unfulfilled.
That's what fueled my passion to create KNOWN as a leading resource for professional women seeking to leverage their skills to create increased income and impact.
In this exclusive cohort, you can finally shed your mask and cape, and give attention to building and growing the business of your dreams.
The beauty of KNOWN is that it takes place AFTER HOURS. You get comprehensive business coaching and strategy all from the comfort of your own home.
You'll meet weekly, on your schedule, and learn in community as you carve out time solely dedicated to creating the life you always envisioned.
We keep our class sizes small (no more than 10 students per cohort), to maximize learning and relationship-building among like-minded professionals. Classes will take place weekly in the evenings and will be recorded and available for replay to all students.
The KNOWN curriculum includes comprehensive, easy-to-follow live instruction, templates, frameworks, Q&A's, checklists, and resources to launch and grow your career and business.
Whether you’re brand new to business or established and ready to grow, KNOWN will challenge you to create intuitive strategies.
As a student, you will gain access to the private, member site as well as online community so that you can network and share resources with other cohort members.
In the cohort, I want you to make mistakes. I want you to ask questions. You don't have to know all the answers. You don't have to know where to start. All that is required is your determination to reach the next level and your brilliance.
As a BONUS, all students will also receive two complimentary 1-on-1 coaching sessions to make sure that you start and end the program with strength and clarity.
After working with countless professionals one-on-one and seeing proven-methods that work, KNOWN consolidates tried and true frameworks and strategies into a comprehensive, mastermind experience for you. Through the program we'll cover brand definition and messaging, storytelling, monetizing your gifts, building signature offers, client attraction business planning and more.
Interactive Business and Personal Brand Coaching
You will gain access to live 1-on-1 as well as online guided instruction where you'll learn the steps to monetize your skills and build a profitable business. This is not a course with pre-recorded videos. We'll have weekly lessons, live Q&A sessions, assignments and group discussions that will allow you to get clear on your brand message and strategy.
As a special bonus, you'll receive two complimentary Power Hour sessions. One to kickstart the program and one as a follow-up to make sure you stay on track with your progress. For one hour, we will get laser- focused on setting well-informed goals, bringing clarity to your idea and focusing in preparation for both the program and business launch.
VIP Access to the 6-Part Curriculum
KNOWN frameworks were crafted to bring you clarity and to get you quick strategic results. After each training session, you'll have access to assignments, resources and our live video trainings.

Business Launch Accelerator Plan
During the program you will create a full brand strategy for your signature offer as well as custom launch (or growth) plan.

Higher Education Executive
“Joining the cohort was hands down one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've been in higher education and medicine for over 10 years, but I knew that I wanted to do two things: advance to a higher role and promote my work and my story. Working with Christina was an absolute game changer and the community I built with my fellow members was so helpful as we all learned and grew together. Not only did I learn how to network my way to a promotion, but I also was featured in the NY Times and CNN. The investment was well worth it. "

Founder, Dance Nerd
“In moving into a completely new industry, I wanted confirmation that I was doing certain things the “right” way. Christina is an excellent sounding boarding board. She could easily expand my ideas or suggest complimentary projects to broaden my reach and earning potential.
Christina is able to quickly and decisively assess situations and provide actionable advice. My only recommendation is to be ready to apply what you learn. Don’t miss the opportunity!"
Meet your breakthrough coach.
My specialty? Introducing you to you a future version of yourself.
I'm known for bringing about "light-bulb' moments and serving as a bridge that connects you with your current aspirations and future dreams. I'm results-driven by nature so I'm a bit obsessed with making your vision a reality.
After speaking on international stages like TEDx, working with some of the largest brands in the world, like the Walt Disney Company, Deloitte Consulting, the NBA and the Federal Government, I felt like something was missing.
I spent more than a decade as a sought-after Brand Catalyst, climbing the corporate ladder, but still felt as if I was shrinking and not in line with my divine purpose. I spent years thinking that something was wrong with me and guilty for not feeling "fulfilled".
It wasn't until I took the initiative to invest in my own development that I discovered my own purpose: teaching professional women how to walk in their full calling and take their skills from the workplace to the marketplace.
I'M CHRISTINA JOY WHITTAKER
I believe your message and story has the power to change the world. I've been where you are and I'm committed to sharing my expertise with you to unlock limitless opportunity.
I've worked with countless professionals and I'm committed to helping you connect the dots and upgrade your personal brand in business and career.
Speaker and Producer*
After going through a difficult divorce, working with Christina was just what I needed. I was in a time in my life where I needed to both mend and build at the same time.
She offered intuitive, focused guidance I needed to not only earn a promotion, but to also create a plan that put a business structure behind the skills that I use every day at work. She showed me what I didn't know was possible. She showed me what I didn't see in myself. She showed me how to get back in the game. I am forever thankful.
time is a factor
This program will SELL OUT!
I will not be opening additional seats after this cohort is full. I'm keeping it small for a reason.
Here's the thing, I don't believe in coincidences.
If you’ve made it to this page, chances are we've crossed paths because it's time for you to shift to a new level by sharing your unique message with the world. Did I get that right? That's typically what I encounter on a regular basis...and for good reason.
I'm a high-caliber coach for those with a high-caliber message.
I've learned a lot since transitioning to entrepreneurship full-time. The road has NOT been easy and I failed A LOT. That's why I'm so committed to supporting you to ease and accelerate the transition process for you. My whole life changed when I made the decision to invest in a coach. So believe me, I know the value of investing.
I want to help you avoid going another year hoping, wishing and dreaming that you were able to have greater income and impact.
Known is like me wearing my heart on my sleeve. I'm so excited to see the growth of this first cohort to join.
This program will NEVER be offered at this price point again, but I wanted to give you a special incentive to start your shift to the next level.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I trust Christina’s industry experience to assist me in doing things the “right” way in order to lay a strong foundation for the future.”
