We help people take action and follow through on their personal development goals.
Most people know what they need to do — to be healthier, have better relationships, start and complete projects — but they’re still not doing it. And it’s not because they don’t want to.
Study after study shows that many (maybe most) of the reasons why we don’t take action, or follow through when we do, can all be summed up as this: LIFE gets in the way!
I’m Christine and I’m a sucker for transformations. From home makeovers (HGTV addict here) to physical transformations, I get a high from seeing people change, get what they want…become their best…have aha moments and follow through on their ideas.
About 10 years ago, when I noticed that many of my weight loss clients kept letting “life” get in the way of their progress, it bummed me out. It bummed me out because I wasn’t having the impact I wanted to, and it killed my buzz for coaching… for a long time.
That was until I came across the book, Changing for Good and became interested in the fascinating field of neuroscience (how the brain works). Over the next 8+ years I devoured everything I could. I learnt (and test drove) some awesome behavior change strategies and codified concepts to create some of my own. Then, when I noticed that one of the happy side-effect of meditation, which I started doing in 2015 to help me deal with a major loss, was that I (a master procrastinator) was able to focus like never before, I knew the combo of both disciplines could have profound impact for others.
With Vurb, I set out to simplify the scientific stuff, teach strategies in a way that’s easiest for people to learn, and work to “move” people motivationally and otherwise.
The Vurb Lifestyle
Vurb is a program for transformation and consistency that blends behavioral science with mindfulness.
It will work for just about everyone…with one caveat:
You must be willing to change your lifestyle. Download a free copy now.
Look, we won’t change (become consistent and successful) if we’re unwilling to change our habits, thoughts and the chaotic way in which we live.
If you want to be organized and you make the effort to clean out and organize your closet, but don’t create a cleaning schedule or some “new rules” for how you’re going to STAY organized, eventually you’re going to go back to throwing your clothes on the chair.
To overwrite old patterns and habits with new ones and to have the “energy” and clarity for follow-through, we have to live our one unique important crazy life in a way that supports us and what we’re trying to accomplish.
Some ideas from the Vurb lifestyle:
- Use the Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast. approach to pursuing goals (an ambitious lazy person created this program…so).
- Adopt mindful techniques like meditation and awareness – they make LIFE and goals so. much. easier.
- Create a life of meaning by focusing on what matters.
- Outsmart your brain using new breakthroughs in change science.
- Use simple biohacks like targeted nutrition and quality sleep to feel good most of the time so you can follow-through when it matters.
- Stop relying on hard-knuckle willpower and instead, work “with” your nature and your strengths.
The beautiful thing about the Vurb lifestyle is that it will not only make pursuing goals easier, it will make your life sweeter.

And the other common reasons people don’t take action and follow-through…
Planning and Know-How
As we learn from Changing for Good, The Power of Habit and other “change science” work, a major reason people don’t succeed or make lasting change is they jump from Contemplating (“thinking about it”) to taking Action (doing it) without Planning (preparing for the journey ahead).
Plans include strategies for known obstacles. For this and many other reasons, planning is a critical stage — in business and personal development. Articulating WHY we want a goal (what it means to us on a deep-rooted level), setting up the resources and support we may need, planning for personal blind spots, etc., are important things to consider and plan for before we start meaningful endeavors.
We create guides that not only give you the know-how to be successful, they include worksheets and information to create customized plans that YOU can commit to.
Another major reason we don’t change or succeed at goals we really want (myself included!), we’re great at procrastination! Some people are forever reading, taking workshops, (and yes, planning) but never taking concrete steps. Whether it’s because they’re waiting for the right time, are a little hazy on where and how to begin or have some other excuse (err reason), they never start the thing they say they really want.
Our courses will kick-start your projects and goals!
We take a learn-by-doing approach because we know that you don’t, for example, build confidence by talking about, reading about, or even work-shopping it. A reliable way to build confidence is to put on a nice outfit and do something that might scare you…then, do more of that until your swagger is on lock.
We meet on weekly calls and live social media chats, and you’ll end the courses with the information and resources to take projects all the way.
FB COMMUNITY COMING SOON
When you purchase a course, you’ll get lifetime access to premium resources (including the ability to take that course again in the future for free) and to the closed Facebook community where you continue to get inspiration and support until you reach your goal.
