The Power of Permission

My story is a summary of situations over my lifetime. I had spent many years being bullied,  isolated and rejected. My life story is a combination of many times where I had tried to do the right things and it always turned into the wrong things. I opened myself up to being a victim for many years. It took a series of real life experiences for me to learn that I did not need to rely on others to determine what my life would or should look like. I learned how to give myself the permission needed to live the life that I wanted to live.

Finding Your True North

My story is about my struggle throughout my adolescence to find “home” and to be comfortable in my own skin. I was on my own, or emancipated, at a very young age and fending for myself in Detroit. My dream to do something amazing and make something of myself helped me to persevere through very trying times and inspired me to start a business and personal practice dedicated to helping others heal holistically and be comfortable in their own skin through bodywork and my own line of plant based body care products.

Christie Lee Ruffino

It was during Christie’s journey when she was inspired to create a brand new business called the Dynamic Professional Women’s Network, Inc., better known as DPWN.  It is an industry exclusive networking organization designed to help women create partnerships with each other to generate ideas, alliances, and revenues within a structured referral generating format. She never intended to start that business to replace the job she was in. Her intentions were only to create a better way to get new customers for that job.  However, she recognized the value of relationship networking instead of traditional networking activities and saw the possibility of achieving more success by uniting a small team of powerful, like-minded business women who would invest in helping her as she helped them. And it worked!

A few years later, she transitioned out of her “JOB” to better manage the direction and growth of the organization. There are now referral chapters in many states, along with ever expanding teams of national and international members who meet virtually every month. She then launched a publishing division of the organization as a resource for her members to share their stories so that they could leverage author status and gain increased exposure and credibility for their businesses by participating in one of her Overcoming Mediocrity anthology books or by publishing their own solo-books. Christie also just recently just started a not-for-profit organization in an effort to help other single moms who are going through a temporary life transition, just like she went through, but can’t get help by any other traditional means.

In addition to working diligently to ensure the success of the Dynamic Professional Women’s Network, DPWN Publishing and the DPWN Angel Foundation, Christie is a past Council Member of the Executives Breakfast Club, served two terms as a Board Director of the Carol Stream Chamber of Commerce,  received a 2008 Special Judge’s Recognition for the Citizen of the Year award in Carol Stream, in 2009 was awarded a Distinguished Woman of Business Award from American Family Insurance with great pleasure and received her highest honors by being recognized as an Influential Women in Business in 2009 by the Daily Herald Business Ledger and the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), in 2010 with an Entrepreneurial Excellence Award and in 2015 with a Kane County Women of Distinction Award by Shaw Media.
