If you’ve ever struggled to get things going, get unstuck, improve your relationships, or simply kick your life into a higher gear, then do we have the show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with CJ Liu, coach and host of the super-popular Fire it Up with CJ radio show.

Today we’ll talk about the importance of self-love. What it looks like. How you grow it. Why you want to practice it. And when you want to do it…if not all the time.

That plus we’ll look at how silly it sounds, how crazy it looks, and why you might not want to do it, in the middle of a business meeting.



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.
