Professional Speaker & Coach
Can you really have it all?
After a decade of successfully selling advertising for top-rated TV and radio stations, while winning awards at ever major station she worked at, Kristin and her husband decided it was time to start the family they’d been dreaming of.
Yet with this period of blessed excitement came an all-too-common challenge. She was dedicated to only working part-time as a mother, but there were not part-time or job-share sales positions at the station. She started searching for other part-time sales positions and found nothing, other than low-paying hourly jobs.
Kristin found herself up late at night worrying how she’d be able to have a career, earn an income, and start a family. She had never thought about it much previously but suddenly realized that no one wants to hire a pregnant lady.
She felt trapped and afraid, when she should have been celebrating.
Leap and the Net Will Appear
So Kristin took a giant, risky leap out of corporate America and began consulting for a personal development company, where she learned the speak-to-sell format that changed her life.
“I was speaking more times every month than most professional speakers do in a year. I was having a blast, helping people, and making money. I felt blessed.
“With this new skill, I realized that all I needed was to gather 3 people, or 30, or 300, the numbers didn’t really matter, and I had the ability to earn an income. I suddenly felt like I had a license to print money! I knew that I no longer had to hide behind a job, or squash my ideas so that I could keep working for others. I was free.” ~ Kristin Thompson
