Pear Collections has had the privilege of working with some inspiring women celebrating their artistic passions which they have turned into businesses. While it’s our mission to help women love their curves while feeling comfortable in their clothing – our other mission is to support fellow women in business going after their dreams. After all, that’s what owner and lead designer Angie Martin did when creating Pear Collections.
Our latest collaboration is one that the team has been quietly working on behind the scenes for a while now and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. For this project, we partnered with another incredibly inspiring woman; Christine Innes from The Corporate Escapist.
In her past life, Christine was a corporate superstar, earning a great wage and climbing the ‘success’ ladder. However, corporate life wasn’t sustainable for her as it took a toll on her both mentally and physically until she eventually hit rock bottom. Instead of staying there, Christine decided to pick herself up, rebuild her life and follow her true passion – helping fellow business owners succeed in achieving their goals.
Today, Christine is an author, speaker, coach, and founder of The Corporate Escapists Program and Magazine.
Journey to Finding Self Love
By following her passion for helping others, Christine, created The Corporate Escapists to provide others a safe place to learn, grow, and be supported escaping the 9 to 5 life and embracing your true callings. The stories shared through this great community help individuals, like you and me, what it’s like behind the scenes of creating passion project businesses and following your dreams.
Christine has gone from broke and broken to creating a life she truly loves. She now can wake up every day living life to the fullest and it is her mission to help you do the same. Throughout this journey, she has also been able to look inside and focus on loving and valuing herself. Because at the end of the day, she knew she couldn’t create the life of her dreams until she knew she deserved it.
By finding self-love Christine has been able to create an empire helping others create the best versions of themselves.
Collaboration and Joining Our Community
As you would have guessed, Pear Collections instantly connected with Christine when first meeting at a business event a year ago. With our two missions being all about supporting others in loving and valuing themselves it almost seems meant to be that we discovered each other.
Due to this connection, the two brands have participated in multiple projects together this past year. Together we have been supporting one another while also supporting each other’s communities the best way we know how – sharing our stories.
