About Christina Rasmussen
SanFrancisco, CA ~ Christina’s first book — SECOND Firsts: Live, Laugh and Love Again — will be released by Hay House in the fall of 2013. She’ll also open the doors to her new action-oriented nonprofit social network — The Life Starters — in the summer of 2014, alongside her first TEDx talk. Christina Rasmussen is on a crusade to change the way we live after loss.
As the founder of Second Firsts, Christina spends her time speaking, coaching and helping thousands of people to rebuild, reclaim and re-launch their whole lives — using the most powerful tool for personal reinvention: the human mind.
Before creating Second Firsts, Christina worked as a therapist and crisis intervention specialist. But after losing her husband to colon cancer, Christina experienced the agony of sudden loss, firsthand. With two daughters in tow, she began the tender process of transforming her tragedy into a new career, a renewed sense of purpose, and a life of joy + laughter. Second Firsts was born. But as she points out:
“This has never been about my story. This is about the work of Re-Entry. It’s about choosing to dance, laugh, love and live again.”
“If you’re lost … if you’re gone … if you can barely absorb the words on this screen … I want you to hold this truth in your heart: when it’s your time to go, you won’t wish you’d spent more time grieving — you’ll wish you’d spent more time living.”
