SheBrand Superstar: Christina Rasmussen

Christina Rasmussen is on a crusade to change the way we live after loss. As the founder of Second Firsts, Christina spends her time speaking, coaching and helping thousands of people to rebuild, reclaim and re-launch their whole lives — using the most powerful tool for personal reinvention: the human mind.

She’s been featured as a Woman Working to Do Good on the White House Blog and has also been featured by PsychCentral, Maria Shriver, NPR and Hay
House Radio, among others. She blogs about life after loss on Huffington Post.

Christina’s first book – Second Firsts: Live, Laugh and Love Again – was released by Hay House in November 2013. It has already ranked as a
bestseller on Amazon and and is now in its second printing run. She’ll also open the doors to her new action-oriented, nonprofit social network The Life Starters – in 2014, alongside her first TEDx talk.

5. What is your biggest pet peeve?

I can’t stand people who can’t speak the truth. 🙂

6. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be?

Evita Peron. She was an amazing woman.
“I know that, like every woman of the people I have more strength than I appear to have.”

And…Walt Disney… “I have been up against some tough competition in my life, I wouldn’t know how to get along without it.”

7. What does it mean to you to have a strong, engaging brand and how has having one helped you?

Our brand shows to the world the insides of our soul, it brings out our voice, that
is invisible. It gives us a body in a digital world were everything is made of code. That code brings us to life.

The design of our brand, the choice of words cements our mission and makes it visible to the millions.

8. What is your #1 tip for fellow women entrepreneurs?

Do not speak like every other woman speaks. Do not mimic, copy and walk the same way as others. Your voice is unique. One of a kind. If it can’t say the words it is here to say then you speak for others and not for yourself. You silence the one thing that makes you special. There are so many people out there ready to stop you from being you, don’t let them.


  1. LOVE the #1 tip. It’s all about owning our truth and our voice and how it is to see it evolve.
