Listen to the podcast below!


If you’re at a point of change in your life, thinking of making a big change, in the middle of making a big change, or change is simply in the air, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be talking with life coach extraordinaire and host of the Fire it Up with CJ show, CJ Liu about transitions and transformation.

We’ll talk about how to know when it’s time to make a change, how to make it through smoothly, and what to do when it’s thrust upon you.

That plus why big changes don’t have to scare you, how we can surf the waves of change, and why sometimes, resistance is futile, unless you’re kale in the northeast in a blizzard.



As an Asian-American with 25 years in Corporate America AND an spiritual explorer, CJ is a bridge between science and spirit,Western and Eastern, as well as logical and intuitive. She seeks out ideas from seemingly opposite sides of an issue to help her audience plug into what’s unfolding on a global scale. From energy healers to surgeons, psychics to psychologists, and vegans to ranchers, her diverse guests reflect her commitment to engage, challenge, entertain and enlighten in every show.


So you’re not a monk, but you still want to live a spiritual life? Then Fire it UP with CJ is the place to go! Yep, no shaved heads or orange garments needed to stay grounded, expand your awareness and be inspired to live your best life. Every week CJ interviews some of the most provocative trailblazers in the fields of spirituality, environment, relationships, and parenting. Gandhi had it right when he said change comes from the inside out. Open your mind, open your heart, and make the world a better place just because you’re in it.
