How Rejection Opens Doors, with Kristin Burke

Crystal Layland Podcast Episodes



Kristin Burke’s mission is to help others maximize their potential and achieve their definitions of success. As a goal achievement coach, Kristin collaborates with women, entrepreneurs and leaders to accomplish breakout performances. Her clients excel with goal clarity, grow their confidence and consistently pursue progress in the direction of their goals. Kristin also hosts the Elite Achievement podcast. 

After working over a decade in a male-dominated industry, Kristin is passionate about empowering women to advance professionally. Her curiosity for women having it all blossomed in graduate school, where she authored her thesis on work-life balance. After concluding that the very word “balance” communicated an unrealistic reality, she started her quest to help others understand how to thrive personally and professionally. 

Kristin launched her coaching practice after advancing in her corporate career from an intern to a senior level director. During her tenure with a Fortune 200 financial services firm, Kristin coached hundreds of small business owners as they developed and grew their practices. She established the platform for the organization’s top-ranking internship program, supported leaders on their development journeys and recruited talent to advance the organization’s impact in the marketplace. The achievements of the recruits and professionals under her guidance led to setting multiple company records in her organization and throughout the country. She has spoken at numerous annual meetings, regional meetings, leadership clinics and women’s summits. 

Kristin is married to her high-school sweetheart, Joe, and they have a vivacious 6-year-old, Scarlett. In her free time, Kristin enjoys finding flow through her hot yoga practice, running and reading.
