Listening to Christine Mendoza’s story, you are immediately inspired to take on life from a different perspective. She is the kind of woman who doesn’t take a beating lying down. Having passed through so much difficulty, Christine drew just enough inspiration from the hard life around her to be able to take a leap into the world of business. Unlike many of her peers, Christine did not give up even when most would have been logical to do so. Her dream to inspire other women to find their own strengths through her story and experiences will capture the attention of many. It’s not about the books, but the mindset.

Christine Mendoza wanted to go to college and to further her education, however, because of her financial situation and because her parents were not able to afford any textbooks, she was not able to. Christine only managed to get her GED. The personal counselors at her school did not take an interest in her plight and did nothing to help her figure out a way to fund her college aspirations. So she dropped out of school. Another reason that she had dropped out of school was that she was constantly being bullied by her peers and also being harassed by the very people that were supposed to protect her. None among her teachers, counselors, and all of the so-called “adults” in her life could do anything to defend her from the world. Having been brought up as an immigrant, life was as hard as it could get. The one person she could have looked up for support – her father – was never present while she was growing up. In spite of all this, Christine’s will and passion triumphed, and that is why she is the woman she is today.

A Survivor turned Savior

Having survived multiple abusive relationships, both physically and mentally, Christine Mendoza saw the need to help other women undergoing the same torture she had barely gotten away from. Christine realized early on that she would not be able to rely on anyone other than herself. She would like to teach other women to have the same mindset. Christine Mendoza wanted to teach young girls and women alike how to use everything at their disposal to gain an advantage in the business world.

Making a Difference, One Day at a Time

Christine Mendoza has helped numerous people build their business, just off of her own connections and an online presence that she has established for herself. Besides this, she is able to build up brands and is a major influencer in the beauty and health niche. Being a mother and a wife, she demonstrates to women that it is possible to rule and run the world without being beaten down by everyday responsibilities of being a spouse and a parent. Her secret is to focus on making a difference, one day at a time. She says, “When you have impacted at least one soul by the end of the day, you have achieved your purpose for that day.”

Christine’s main hustle is the Face & Bawdy brand. It is essentially a platform that she uses to lead the mindset of women that are looking to “level up” in life. She focuses on giving tips and tricks based on her own experience that covers the areas of life, beauty, fitness, and health. She is currently working on expanding her online reach through blogging, being on YouTube, as well as podcasts. Christine is also looking to leverage other social media platforms to reach more women with ideas and solutions to their business issues.

To Sum It All Up

Christine Mendoza believes that all women have the capability of making something great for themselves and for those around them. She believes that holding accountability to your own self is a key trait. Christine continues to be the face of women who resist a dark background and rise up to fight their way into the world of financial freedom. There is no one to blame for your own failure. In finishing, Christine insists, “The world owes you nothing.”
