Today we’d like to introduce you to Corina Tripon.
Corina, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
About four years ago, I was wrestling with feelings of aimlessness and underutilization in my corporate career. I was underwhelmed with my earnings and the direction my professional life was heading all together and even felt as if I had let my younger, overly ambitious self down. I had recently turned 30, had my first son and celebrated 9 years of marriage with my husband, yet I felt personally lost and disconnected from myself. I think a lot of women can relate to that season of life where you get pushed further and further away from the person you thought you would be when you grew up.
I started to become increasingly aware of my unhappiness in my career and felt the pressure of time to start making serious changes. For the first time in my life, I picked up self-help books and challenged my fears. I started asking questions about my own gifts, potential and how I wanted to contribute to the world. The flicker of ambition started to burn a little stronger. I stopped avoiding my own voice and desire for more and started entertaining ideas of entrepreneurship and full ownership of my own success. The flicker become stronger and I decided to take the ultimate leap to quit my job and launch my own growth coaching business.
Audacity is a meaningful word in my story, ever since my family moved to the United States from Bucharest, Romania in 1991, taking bold risks has been a way of life for me. Oftentimes we let fear disqualify us from our own potential and it’s leaning into audacious faith that realigns us to the purpose we were created for.
I have the honor of coaching incredibly audacious female entrepreneurs all over the country. I use my gifts of insight, motivation and discernment to empower women to own their potential, to honor their unique gifts and operate from alignment instead of hustle and grind. Alongside private coaching, I also lead an online community called Ginger Root Society, where women support, grow and learn from one another to be audaciously successful in their lives and businesses.
I am deeply fulfilled and honored to get to do the work of growth coaching. I am proud of the impact myself and my clients have on the world and will continue to lean into audacious faith with every breath I take.
Has it been a smooth road?
If there is anyone successful who has had a smooth road- beware- they are full of shit.
I first struggled with feeling qualified to coach other women and climbed out of imposter syndrome on a daily basis. I think when you start out into something new, you are keenly aware of your own weaknesses. I had to learn to rely on my gifts and focus on serving clients with earnest integrity, instead of comparing myself to other coaches or experts.
I also struggled to separate myself from the success of my business. When you are the nucleus of your brand, it’s tricky to not let it absorb your entire identity. I am not my business, I have a business. I had to learn to create boundaries around my work and still pour into the woman, apart from the entrepreneur. It’s honestly a constant battle, even today I have to force myself to separate my professional success from my personal identity and still find ways to be a normal 35 years old woman.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Ginger Root Society story. Tell us more about the business.
Ginger Root growth coaching is all about harnessing your unique gifts and taking radical ownership of your potential. Personal development is about trusting yourself and God who created you, more than you trust the fear and insecurities you hold. I coach my clients to trust their intuition, their voice and their ideas as they build strong businesses. I am proud that my clients learn to not make decisions out of fear but lean heavily into faith. Ginger Root Society also teaches members to create success by alignment instead of hustle that leads to burnout. Whenever I speak at events, I am known for being empowering, hilariously honest and authentically extra. I am most proud of the confidence and believe that I have grown in other women to give merit to their dreams. My dream is to inspire women to activate their individual gifts and create massive impact on the world by relying on faith instead of fear.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
The coaching industry has grown exponentially in the last five years and I think it will continue to have even more growth in the future. I also anticipate more regulation and less “Instagram” coaches as consumers become savvy about investing in their personal and professional development.
This is the best time in history for women to create success on their terms. We will see more women choosing to honor their ambitions without the pressure to choose between their families or their careers. I anticipate seeing women taking more authority in how to “do it all”, choosing to design her life by her terms. I think the future is female but she doesn’t have anything to prove- she’s rooted in confidence and rising up with grace.
