This Is How Millennial Mom Christina Bright Stays Totally Ready

Totally Ready

This post is in partnership with Colgate.

Success is when preparation meets opportunity. As women, we often forfeit our dreams due to lack of money, time or resources.


*Cue negative self talk* I don't have enough money to start over. I don't have enough time to invest in my dream. I don't have enough knowledge to successfully run a business.

We tend to charge our dreams to the game due to the insufficient faith we have in ourselves and our struggle, but this mogul mom is proof that even if you never feel like you have "enough" to take a leap of faith, you're always totally ready.

Christina Bright was finishing her third year in college and preparing to study abroad in Costa Rica when she discovered she was pregnant with a baby boy. The then 21-year-old student was faced with the biggest decision of her life: allow fear to stifle every dream she's ever had, or live fearlessly in the pursuit of them. Totally Ready for the moments that matter.

It's obvious to say that a young Christina chose the latter, because she is now living her best life, earning a paycheck in pursuit of her passion. Her day-to-day schedule is centered around being a great mom and connecting with people from all walks of life to inspire them to pursue the lives they deserve.

Christina, freeform creative, actress, and philanthropist, makes sure she has a healthy smile prepared for every opportunity with Colgate's Total 12-hour Multi-Protection toothpaste, because she knows that the best moments in life come when you least expect them.
