And in this week’s episode, Kristen gets into the nitty-gritty of how when things go wrong in this business model, it’s important to see the lesson to be had instead of something you feel the need to defend.
Today’s episode is the first part of a...

What was your goal when you first decided to jump into network marketing? Did you think you’d be making 6 figures in your first 3 months? That you’d have no problem recruiting with such massive success under your belt? Or maybe you thought that you’d win a bunch of trips or whatever prizes your company gives away for being just so amazingly awesome? While all of this may technically be possible with this business model, it’s more often the exception and not the rule.
And Kristen says...
Have you ever shied away from selling a bigger price point to a customer because you didn't think they could afford it? Or what about putting off investing in your business because you have a psychological issue with debt? Believe it or not, your thoughts on money can affect more than your business’s bottom line.
Your personal beliefs about finances are what Kristen calls your money story, and this week she's going to explain how your own money story can keep you from showing up in your...
To DM or not to DM? That is the question. And the answer may not be what you’d expect.

Momentum in business can be defined as ‘the force that propels your business forward.’ At the beginning of the pandemic, many network marketers saw big booms in their sales and recruiting, which led to a belief that once everything went back to normal, they’d be back at square one. With no momentum in sight.
Kristen is here to tell you that this is most definitely not the case. In this week’s episode, she talks about what it takes to create momentum and how to harness it into something...
In the world of network marketing, seeing the end of the month creep up on the calendar can cause panic to kick in. You need one big push to hit rank or to make your income goal, and there’s only so much time left. It can be tempting to jump into hustle mode: messaging all the people, desperately posting all over Instagram, staying up all hours…
Kristen calls this frenzy Month End Mania, and it doesn’t have to be inevitable. She’s back this week with some hard to hear truths about how...
Being successful can often come at a price. And all too often that price is paid by those who are closest to us. It’s easy to get tunnel vision when running a network marketing business: checking your phone at all hours, missing family time to run a meeting, or simply forgetting to check-in with your spouse over who’s turn it is to wash the dishes.
Instead of assuming they’ll always have your back, we need to be mindful and gracious of those who support us along our journeys as business...
“How do you have time to do it all?” is one of the most frequently asked questions Kristen receives. Today she’s sharing more about her journey as a mother and a business owner and how that relationship has evolved over the years.

We’ve all had a bad day, or a bad week. Heck, maybe even a bad month. Maybe you’ve contemplated jumping to another company, or quitting all together because it’s just not working. You may not know it, but there is real danger in how we talk to ourselves during those times of low belief and frustration.
In this week’s episode, Kristen is fired up about the untruths we tell ourselves when things aren’t working out. She talks about how our brains are wired to seek out problems, and how...
When you first decided to jump into network marketing, no one told you how demanding it would be to lead your own team. The weekly calls, the check-ins, and not to mention onboarding new members and keeping up morale. You only have so much energy to go around, and it can be disheartening to put in so.much.effort, only to feel like you’re wasting your time.
It can be easy to stop showing up when you feel like you’re unappreciated. Or to put off those weekly calls until enough people show...
Just like the argument over whether pineapple belongs on pizza (it does!), network marketing is a topic everyone has an opinion on. And surprise, not everyone thinks it's awesome. If you’ve been in this business for any length of time, you’ve probably attracted your fair share of haters.
Well, Kristen isn’t having any of it.
Today she talks about why network marketing has gotten a bad wrap in the past and how she’s made it her personal mission to change that perception. Listen in as...
There’s a laundry list of reasons to begin your journey into social selling. For many, it’s often the promise of freedom to spend more time with your loved ones or the enticement of a better work/life balance (and let’s not forget the unlimited earning potential!!). If you’ve been in the network marketing arena for any length of time, you know that success can quickly lead to feelings of overwhelm, frustration, and panic.
In today’s powerful episode, Kristen is sharing the mic with three...
In network marketing, you set goals all the time. Monthly goals, recruitment goals, sales goals, the list goes on. But what happens as the weeks pass by and you start struggling to meet those goals? The enthusiasm you had has disappeared and you’re left feeling mentally exhausted and needing a break. You don’t see the harm in taking a day off from social media, or renegotiating to a simpler goal.
This is a form of self-sabotage Kristen calls micro-quitting, and it can do more harm to your...
Kristen is back again this week with three more amazing members of the Purpose and Profit 6 Figure Earner Mastermind.

Join Kristen as she discusses the fear of slowing down, and how learning to lead effectively can change your relationship with success.
Here’s what you’ll uncover in today’s...
This week on the podcast, join Kristen as she welcomes three students from the Purpose and Profit 6 Figure Earner Mastermind. Ali, Kaitlin, and Brittany all came to network marketing around the same time. And while they all traveled different paths to reach success, they had one thing in common. Not feeling confident in their roles as leaders.
Listen in as they talk candidly with Kristen about the power of confidence in leadership and what lacking that confidence can look like. Here are a...
In today’s episode, Kristen sheds some light on an underrated sales technique that not only makes selling feel less slimy, but can also motivate your customers from the time they purchase until they meet their end goal. It’s not some big, crazy trade secret, but it is something top network marketers use everyday. It’s called selling intangibles. Join us today where Kristen talks about:
How to determine what's tangible versus intangible Why selling only measurable results can be a...

If you’ve been in a social selling business for any length of time, you’ve probably felt like quitting at some point. You won’t hear any judgement from Kristen as having this thought is totally normal. She’s getting real about what it means when you or someone on your team wants to ‘take a step back’ or hit the ‘pause’ button in their business:
What to do when you feel like quitting Why you shouldn’t feel guilty if you’ve been fantasizing about quitting What your downline really means...
Do you work your business when you’re not feeling motivated or positive/high vibes? Or do you run/shut down the minute you feel discomfort or frustration? You can learn the skill of harnessing the power of your emotions to create more success in your business--with positive AND negative emotion. Today Kristen’s covering:
Why motivation is a fair weather emotion and why it typically leads to intense bursts of output and then burnout Why we’ve been conditioned to work only when you’re...
In today’s special bonus episode, Kristen talks with her business ‘bestie’ Samantha Siffring all about cultivating adult friendships and why it’s important to have business friendships as an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship can feel lonely and having someone by your side who understands the ups and downs of growing a business is key.
Why having people on your side who ‘get’ what you’re going through as an entrepreneur is so important The behind the scenes stories of how Kristen and...
Are you living to your fullest potential or are you shrinking yourself to fit other people’s expectations of you? Many times we live in fear of what other people--typically the people closest to us--will think of us. We fear their judgment. But really, they’re misunderstanding our actions. Kristen’s sharing why people misunderstand us and what to do about it!
Why we feel rejected when people misunderstand us What core/primal feeling is triggered when we’re misunderstood What it means if...
Numbers, metrics, data--whatever you call it, typically create some sort of drama in our lives because of what we make those numbers mean. Kristen hears it all the time: social sellers who never even look at their numbers because they cause so much anxiety, shame, fear, and doubt. But the numbers don’t create those feelings.
Listen in as Kristen shares how we’re approaching the data in our lives in a way that isn’t serving us--regardless if the numbers are ‘good’ or ‘bad.’
How many times have you worked hard on a social media post and have been disappointed when you didn’t get new followers, comments, or DMs because you expected something in return? This is called ‘success entitlement.’
It’s not realistic to think every action should have an equal return--especially when you’re first starting out.
Listen for more on how to shift out of this mindset:
The difference between abundant marketing and transactional marketing Why success entitlement...
