EP 34: Spotlight on Rebel Writer – Kristin Giese
This week I have the absolute pleasure of introducing you to Kristin Giese. Holy Poop buckets she is funny! What I was so pleasantly surprised by during this episode was her super sage wisdom and all the chills I got listening to her. I felt like I was in the studio with Brene Brown! Join us as we laugh about the weird and let our freak flags fly. Kristin started her career as a publicist and grew into a talent manager. She hails from the lifestyle space and owns her own business launching products for high profile clients. She most recently wrote her own novel unVerfied. Coming from big brand markets like Oprah, Target, NBC, Ace Hardware, and others Kristin reveals what it’s like to be a woman in workplace, dealing with disappointments, and how to hold on to our creative endeavors.
In this episode you will hear:
-How to keep yourself and your integrity even when people are letting you down and falling short on their promises.
-About Kristin’s journey from talent managing to becoming the the talent.
-About the entrepreneurial spirit that guides us to look for opportunities
-When the time is right to strike.
-Why Kristin chose to write a Rom Com and what led her to the “unexpected” choice.
-Amazing wisdom from Kristin on how family that has become your adversary can inadvertently help you find something important.
-How the journey comes with a lot of no’s, and how people don’t come through when you think they will, but how the path inevitably becomes clearer and you become wiser.
