Hey girl! I’m Kristin Kotzebue…
A Texas girl raising 3 babies with my high school sweetheart. Obsessed with: Jesus, dessert, margaritas, foam soap, and trips to the lake. Read on for the good stuff!
It was time to launch my newest fitness challenge and I went to do what I always did…post before and after pictures of women who had already been through the program in order to share the results they got. These were usually pictures taken in a sports bra and shorts or underwear, displaying how she had lost weight and inches.
I couldn’t do it.
I had zero desire to post a picture and have another woman join my group with the hopes of looking like that too. Comparing herself to that image, wishing she could look like that image, and hating her body for it. I didn’t want people to feel like those pictures were how they were supposed to look. I wanted people to join me for this fitness challenge because they loved themselves, they wanted to gain energy and simply feel their best. Not because they hated their body and wanted to change!
I just wanted to say, “I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR ABS, I JUST WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY!”
I knew right then that after 5 years and over 900 clients, I didn’t want to be a health and fitness coach anymore. There was a bigger problem and it had nothing to do with what our bodies looked like on the outside, the latest ab moves, or diet trends…the problem was on the inside.
I looked at my two little girls and NEVER wanted them to compare themselves to other women and think that they are not enough…not pretty enough, not skinny enough, not talented enough. Enough is Enough!
It became my mission to inspire women to look more at who God says they are instead of who the world says they are. To lift one another up and focus on progress not perfection, community not comparison, faith over fear, and finding inner peace and purpose through Christ!
Isaiah 64:8 says, “We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hands.”
That’s how Pink Clay was born! “Pink”, because we’re ladies, and “Clay”, because we are the clay to God, our potter!
You were made for a purpose by God himself. You are enough. You are beautiful. You have so much to offer. God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called. So let’s boldly step out in faith and become the person He created us to be!
For some of you that might mean starting your own small business, being at the top of the Forbes List, becoming the Teacher of the Year, or becoming the BEST stay at home momma to your babies while rocking pj’s.
All roles matter. All are important.
After I stopped fitness coaching I started getting asked questions about how I built my business online over the last 5 years. I started training other entrepreneurs on different tools and strategies I used and realized I loved teaching and it was so rewarding to help others build their passions into a thriving business too!
Whether or not you’re here to grow in your everyday life, strengthen your faith, or build a business that thrives…I’m just so glad you’re here!
I hope when you come to our website Podcast, YouTube channel, Instagram, workshops, or any other Pink Clay platform…you feel a little happier, a little more motivated, a little closer to Jesus, a little more supported, and a little more inspired to take that little first step towards whatever it is you feel called to be.
Go find me on your favorite social media platform and say hi! I can’t wait to get to know you better!
