More about Kristen:

When Kristen first discovered Micala’s Overwhelmed to Overbooked course, she had a corporate marketing job. She would sit in her cubicle listening to podcasts about growing a business and dreaming of the day she would start my own.

Then, Kristen got pregnant! She decided it was time to start that business so she could eventually stay home with her baby boy.

Kristen started as a Virtual Assistant helping coaches and course creators. Through the experience she was gaining, she found that Social Media Management was what she really enjoyed. Kristen loves helping her clients strategize and promote their business through social media.

After experiencing a back injury, Kristen suddenly needed to go from my one client to several more because she had to start sending her baby to daycare. Shockingly, Kristen ended up going from one client to five clients within five weeks! Listen to this episode to hear what tools she used to grow her business!
