We obtained an exclusive interview with Coach, Pastor, Preacher, Conference Speaker, and Entrepreneur, Crystal Mance.
Hi Crystal it’s nice to chat with you today.
Crystal: Hello, it’s very nice to chat with you as well. I’m honored to be featured in We Empower Magazine and am looking forward to our chat.
What is vital for our readers to know about you and the work that you do?
Crystal: I am a woman who is empathetic and kind, and I have a strong desire to assist women in overcoming the challenges of emotional and mental burnout. My positive and optimistic demeanor radiates warmth and encouragement, and I genuinely love nature and the beach. What I find most impressive about myself is my unwavering commitment to collaborating with women and assisting them in developing effective strategies to lead more productive lives. This reflects my dedication to empowering others to reach their full potential.
It brings me great joy to witness women transform and grow into the person that God intended them to be. Providing love, prayer, and support is truly rewarding, and I find it equally fulfilling to help my clients recognize their own self-worth and establish a healthy balance in their lives. I encourage women to understand that agreeing to everything and everyone can result in neglecting their own objectives and aspirations. By setting boundaries and being deliberate about self-care, women can prioritize their needs and avoid losing themselves in the process. This realization helps my clients establish healthy boundaries and develop the confidence to communicate them effectively, which ultimately leads to the respect and support they deserve from others.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. How do you navigate your mental health as a business owner? What are some of your best self-care practices?
Crystal: As a business owner, effectively managing my mental health is a priority. I make it a point to regularly check in with myself and honestly assess my current state, acknowledging both my strengths and areas where I may need support. This self-reflection helps me prioritize and find a healthy balance in my life. Additionally, I actively engage in self-care practices to maintain my well-being, such as prayer, meditation, and taking intentional moments of rest. These practices allow me to recharge and keep my priorities aligned.
Among my best self-care practices, prayer and meditation play a significant role. They provide me with clarity, inner peace, and a sense of connection. Listening to my body is also crucial, as it helps me recognize when I need to rest or take breaks. Learning to say “No” when necessary is another valuable practice that prevents me from becoming overwhelmed and enables me to stay focused on my priorities. By incorporating these self-care practices into my routine, I am better equipped to navigate the challenges of being a business owner while maintaining my mental well-being.
What are some must-have items you need and what environment must you be in when writing a book?
Crystal: That’s a wonderful question. It is crucial for me to be immersed in a serene outdoor environment that makes me feel at peace. Whether it’s the gentle chirping of birds, the soothing breeze brushing against the trees, the sensation of sand between my toes, or the captivating sight of the rolling sea, these natural surroundings help me connect with the presence of God.
To enhance my writing experience, I enjoy playing soft instrumental worship or jazz music in the background. This combination of music and nature creates an inspiring ambiance that stimulates my thoughts and fosters a sense of tranquility. By immersing myself in these spaces, I find that my mind can focus and process ideas without being distracted by external noises.
To ensure uninterrupted concentration, I make it a point to silence notifications on my phone. This deliberate action allows me to be fully present in the moment and ensures that my writing flows with clarity. I can channel my creativity and convey my thoughts effectively on the page by eliminating distractions.
Can we expect a follow-up book to R.E.S.E.T. Releasing Every Situation Encourages Transformation? Or are there any more books in the works?
Crystal: Absolutely! I am currently working on a companion workbook to accompany R.E.S.E.T. My goal is to have it available by the Fall. This workbook will be filled with valuable insights and life lessons that will guide us in moving forward and becoming the best versions of ourselves. It will provide a platform for deep reflection and meditation on these valuable nuggets while offering practical guidance on implementing them in our daily lives. The aim is to empower readers to make meaningful progress and continue their transformative journey.
What do you want your legacy to look like?
Crystal: That’s a truly thought-provoking question. My ultimate aspiration is for my legacy to be deeply rooted in a life devoted to selfless service and the empowerment of others. Above all else, I long to be remembered as a dedicated individual who wholeheartedly served and spread the love of God, acting as a catalyst for others to embrace their divine purpose here on Earth. My greatest desire is to be recognized as a compassionate and inspiring woman who uplifted and empowered individuals, guiding them through life’s trials and obstacles, and enable them to break free from the constraints that held them back. I yearn for my impact to resonate in the lives of others, helping them unleash their untapped potential and surmount any challenges that impede their progress. Ultimately, I aim to be a beacon of hope, inspiring others to forge ahead and embrace a future full of possibilities.
What advice would you have for aspiring entrepreneurs and authors?
Crystal: I encourage them to take consistent daily action toward their business goals. Rather than perceiving it as mere work, they should view it as a means of constructing their legacy and shaping their future. It’s important to recognize that what they do extends beyond themselves; it serves a larger purpose. By redirecting their focus to this greater purpose, they can tap into a wellspring of passion and enthusiasm.
I firmly believe that individuals are already destined to connect with their business, read their books, listen to their podcast, and more. By demonstrating the determination to press forward and build their business or write their book, they equip others with the necessary tools to become the best versions of themselves and progress in life. Although they may not witness the immediate growth of their efforts, they should trust in the process and continue planting the seeds of their business and writing endeavors. In due time, those seeds will manifest and bear fruit.
For aspiring authors, my suggestion is to begin somewhere. They can start by audio recording their thoughts, jotting down notes in a journal or notes app on their phone, or employing any other method that suits their style. Creating bullet points of the topics they wish to write about will serve as a foundation to build upon. Writing a book does not have to be a lengthy process; it requires focus, determination, dedication, and unwavering commitment to completion. Once accomplished, they will be glad they took the journey. Furthermore, I encourage them to seek guidance from a reputable book coach, such as Coach Taurea Vision Avant and the BPC family. Their expertise can help transform the dream of writing and publishing a book into a tangible reality while also providing valuable insights for building a successful business.
What else would you like to share with us at this time?
Crystal: I would like to emphasize the significance of staying attuned to our emotions and being authentic with ourselves. In today’s world, emotional and mental exhaustion and its impact on our well-being have reached unprecedented levels. When we find ourselves overwhelmed and burdened by stress, it is crucial to prioritize rest and engage in activities that allow us to reset our minds. It is equally important to recognize that seeking professional assistance when necessary is not a sign of weakness but a proactive step toward self-care.
We can no longer disregard our mental health and brush it aside. Instead, we must acknowledge its importance and seek the help we need to heal and thrive. Let us create a culture where mental health is given the attention and support it deserves, enabling us to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.
Crystal: Absolutely! I have several shoutouts to make. First and foremost, a special shoutout to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as it is through His guidance and grace that I have reached where I am today. I also want to express my heartfelt appreciation to my incredible family: my loving husband Darryl, my wonderful children Mark and Olivia, my parents, godchildren Kate, Nayelle, and their amazing mom, Nakia, and grandmother, Narda. I am truly grateful for their unwavering support and love.
I would also like to give a shoutout to my cherished tribe, my Sister Cousin, Michele Tate and a huge shoutout to Coach Taurea and my BPC (Book Publishing Coach) family. Their presence in my life has been invaluable, providing guidance, encouragement, and inspiration along my journey. I am truly blessed to have such a supportive network of individuals who have contributed to my growth and success.
