Listening to Your Soul with Christine Kane

Meet Christine Kane

Before Christine Kane founded what became a multi-million dollar coaching company, she spent fifteen years in the music industry, producing seven CDs and a DVD on her own label while touring the globe over 200 days a year. She shared the stage with luminaries like John Mayer, The Beach Boys, Los Lobos, Nanci Griffith, and Shawn Colvin. Her success as a singer-songwriter had fans asking how she did it while staying true to her art and her soul. Those backstage questions turned into weekend retreats. Those retreats turned into coaching requests – and set her on a new path. 

In 2010, Kane opened Uplevel You, a company that serves the ever-growing class of sensitive, idea-driven, aggression-averse entrepreneurs (a class she counts herself a member of). She has really worked to change the definition of entrepreneur. Her work has attracted more than 125,000 loyal email subscribers and has coached thousands of clients into the six and seven figures in their businesses. She has spoken at events from the Martha Beck annual conference to the iconic Emerging Women event. Today, Christine leads a small yet mighty team at Uplevel World Headquarters in Asheville, North Carolina. 

I loved Christine’s raw authenticity, soulful slant on life and business, and the beautiful combination of owning her power and humility. I was quite inspired by Christine’s decision to leave her successful singing and performing career to follow the nudges of her soul to help sensitive, creative and ambitious entrepreneurs integrate the delicate balance of soul and strategy. If this resonates even a little bit, you’re going to love this interview. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and get ready to hang with Christine and me for a cozy and delicious conversation.

The 3 A’s

We talked about the importance, especially for those ‘quick start’ high energy types, to pause before any talk, engagement, activity, or even a meal to get clear on your intention. Christine shared her soulful intention, the 3 A’s, as she calls it, where she wishes awakeness, awareness, and abundance for all involved. I loved these 3 A’s and thought they might inspire you as well. 

Soul + Strategy

Christine Kane’s book, The Soul-Sourced Entrepreneur, both goes into her personal story as well as the frameworks she teaches to help what she calls the ‘highly creative, secretly sensitive and wildly ambitious’ to excel, succeed and build a career and life that comes from both strategy and the soul. This is not just about having a great mindset, as what’s often overlooked is connecting with the richness and lessons from our soul. This book and words of wisdom are for the new class of entrepreneurs who want to incorporate soul-filled wisdom and honor some of the most significant overlooked assets: intuition, sensitivity, and creativity. 

Don’t Tolerate Mediocrity. Listen to Your Soul.

We have to start learning to tell the truth, meaning our own personal truth. As human beings, we want to fit in, and sometimes when listening to your soul’s calling, it will have you take a different course than expected. Christine shares her experience of this after realizing she didn’t want to be a renowned singer and performer and instead felt called to serve in a different way through coaching and guiding others. If you simply tolerate your life because it feels comfortable or you’re scared of what others think, just realize that it will only get worse to keep accepting a life you don’t absolutely love. Tapping into your truth will help you get tuned in and stop deflecting what your soul knows to be right for you. Being able to release these fixed mindsets and listen to your soul is what will move you towards your higher calling.

Living a Soul Sourced Life

Christine shared her ways of staying in alignment with her best self, which has a different look to it than in years past. Her daily routine of self-connection is about finding time to meditate (but not being rigid about it). Also, embodying that every day is sacred, reading something spiritual, and offering prayers to remember who she is. She makes time to lift weights to stay physically strong and shows up as present as possible. Doing silent meditation retreats and other inner work have been game-changers for her life. Today she welcomes the natural ebbs and flows of being her most authentic self.

Being your You-est You

As Christine describes it, it’s a natural way of being and an organic way to navigate the world. Start by trusting your life and soul. It will all show you where to go.
