Hey, I'm Kristy.

I work with creative entrepreneurs to funnel all of their brilliant ideas into inspired action.  Because, as I'm sure you know, we right-brainers can churn out a million shiny ideas but can use a little help in the 'making things happen' department. That's my thing.

Right now, I'm focused on collaborating and producing the Start-Up Speakeasy weekly web show filled with insights and actionable tips from my biz buddies doing the work + co-hosting a conference here in New Orleans for unconventional small business owners to do the same.
