Chances are, you’ve seen fitness model, entrepreneur and internet sensation, Tiara Kristine somewhere on the internet modeling fitness gear or or on someone’s post about beauty. Her pictures are notorious for showing up all over the web.  In real life, Tiara is originally from the Bay Area in California, but she grew up all over. Her step dad was in the army so she lived everywhere around the world from, Germany, Europe, Washington, Georgia–she was an army brat.

But how she turned into an internet sensation and model is something that came from a simple comment.

“I was working and wearing my suits and all the guys would want to stop and stare,” says Kristine. “When I would go out people would stop and stare. I was working a regular job and making like $60,000 a year and it was cool. But I was working 40 hours a week and it sucked.”

“Then I heard someone say instead staring they should, ‘take a picture, it would last longer’ and found out that people would be willing to pay $19.99 a pop to look at and say ‘Okay, I’m doubling what I make in corporate America,’ so you do the math.”

To me, healthy would be operating in a holistic (whole) state of being experiencing and balancing out all the fluctuating states of Self.”

“To be Healthy is to be able to flow in in all states relative to your own unique being to achieve/bring back/maintain balance. Its being open to a new perspective on ‘healing’ by embracing all that is in contrast to what ‘healthy’ is. To flow and be engaged in the process of Life. This is how I have experienced health.”

Tiara has some sage advice for those who also want to venture into the realm of being more comfortable in their skin and sexuality. For Tiara, it wasn’t always easy.

“I always tell people you will not know who you are until you can feel that way about yourself in the contrast. I’ve always been used to getting attention or getting compliments my whole life, to me it was normal. To me it was like this is who I am, this is nature this is how sh*t works. When I started my site people would say “Omg, you’re so fearless” and I would say no it’s not that I’m fearless but maybe more courageous. It’s not like I just went in all gung ho. It took me years to uncover my layers. The more I stripped down…
