Memorable Quotes:

  • “You shouldn't be doing all the things. You need to be doing the things that are really important to your business growth.”
  • “Don't get super, super excited about this that you think, ‘Oh my goodness, now I can just create all of this content’, and then you don't create a sustainable system.”
  • “It's so much easier to go in and pause what you have pre-scheduled than it is to try and create brand new content on the fly that is in alignment with what's going on in the world at that particular time.”
  • “My whole purpose on Instagram is to build an engagement with real people.”

After recognizing her true passion lies in serving entrepreneurs, Kristen honed her skills as a Director of Operations. She quickly noticed that what was holding many business owners back wasn’t a lack of drive or ability, but a lack of foundational systems that could support the day-to-day operations of a scaling business. These days, she spends her time helping online coaches, copywriters, and creatives scale without the frustration that massive growth often brings.
