About Christine Hassler
Christine Hassler left her successful job as a Hollywood agent at 25 to pursue a life she could be passionate about . . . being a Life Coach. In 2005, she wrote the first guide book written exclusively for young women, entitled 20 Something 20 Everything, and then published her second book not too far later, The 20 Something Manifesto, which was written for men and women and stems from her experience coaching twenty-something’s.
Today, she supports individuals in discovering the answers to the questions: “Who Am I, What do I want, and How do I get it?” Christine coaches with a counseling emphasis specializing in relationships, career, finances, self-identity, personal and spiritual growth. Her expertise is centered on the twenty and early thirty something years of life, and she is passionate about busting the myth that the twenty something years are about living by a checklist and having it all figured out.
HOW TO ENTER TO WIN TWO $200 AMEX GIFT CARDS!
Just like previous giveaways this week, all you have to do to enter to win ONE of TWO $200 American Express cards is to answer the below following question. With one of your own ;) The TWO lucky questioners will not only win their $200 card, but ALSO get their questions answered by Gen Y expert Christine Hassler herself! So make them good! And if you don’t have one you’re just dying to ask, come up with something you feel our audience would love to hear the answer to anyways. So we can all learn :) Here’s what we got:
What’s a question you have around finding (or landing) a good job in the current challenging market? Or a question on anything else career-related?
We’ll pick two of these questions, and the two people behind them will win a $200 Amex card EACH! That’s $400 free cash for y’all just for asking some good career questions – not too shabby :) (And in full disclosure, I got a $200 card for hosting this as well – win-win-win!) Now go and drop your questions below. The giveaway ends THIS Saturday, December 17th @ Midnight, and the two winners will be selected and announced the following day (Sunday) in the afternoon.

Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
