Most people see challenges as obstacles. Christy Wilson, known as The Profitability Pathmaker, sees them as stepping stones to elevate individuals to great heights. Wilson’s positive lens, infectious enthusiasm, and boundless energy are only matched by her demonstrated business and leadership success. Her philosophy? Success is about empowerment, growth, and authentic self-expression. With her upcoming show, ‘Above the Noise,’ Christy aims to spread this message to an even larger audience.

Lest anyone think Christy Wilson is more a cheerleader than a business leader, Christy’s uniqueness lies in her blend of operational excellence and human connection. While her Six Sigma certification speaks volumes about her focus on business growth, her innate drive for social impact is her greatest strength. “Turn adversity into advantage,” is her mantra, a life lesson she passionately injects in her speaking engagements and business coaching sessions.

Turning Lemons Into Lemonade

From her initial experiences in public speaking at school events to being in the limelight as a competitive dancer, Christy was destined to transform lives. Her innate passion for advocacy and leadership grew from personal challenges due to her genetic condition, Agammaglobulinemia. However, this condition didn’t deter her spirit. Instead, it taught her the art of adaptability and the craft of turning “lemons into the best darn lemonade on the market!”

Let’s Go Team!

Christy’s core philosophy is that success isn’t limited to profits or accolades. She believes that a business’s sustained success results from an inclusive and diverse team. “A single person doesn’t build a successful business. Diverse teams do,” she often says. With a mission to guide fellow leaders and entrepreneurs to their ‘next level,’ she invites everyone to join in the pursuit of empowerment and change. Why? Simply because, “when one of us wins, we all do.”

In fact, what truly sets Christy apart from her competitors is her dedication to fostering inclusive corporate cultures. “Imagine a place where diversity isn’t just a buzzword, but the secret ingredient to our success,” she declares. However, no imagination is required to recognize the transformative effects of incorporating inclusivity into the businesses she’s helmed. For example, as Owner/CEO of Woo’s IT/Next Level Connected, Christy led the company to new heights by adhering to her ethos of inclusivity. Woo’s IT/Next Level Connected collaborates with various organizations to scout and provide career opportunities to individuals with disabilities.

A Pioneer at Heart

Christy is not only a champion of inclusivity, but she is also a visionary entrepreneur who can clearly see future trends that would later become business as usual. For example, in 2002, before remote work became the norm, Christy was already pioneering remote workforces. In addition, she’s scaled organizations from fledgling startups to established entities, leading them to a staggering 1000% business growth rate.

Simply Unstoppable 

As to the future, Christy envisions her brand as a catalyst for transformational change. Her ultimate goal, however, extends beyond business expansion. Her ambition is to create a global platform that empowers everyone, regardless of background or challenges, to optimize their unique qualities and turn them into true strengths.

Let’s Dance!

Christy Wilson’s story is one of courage, resilience, and transformation. She teaches us that every twist and turn in our path can be a stepping stone to greater heights. Her philosophy is more than a business strategy. It’s a life strategy. As she would say, “Embrace your journey and inspire others along the way. Ready to dance with me?”
