3 Questions with Kristin
Is there someone you can point to who really influenced your entrepreneurial journey?
"Not sure if there is one specific person, but I have always admired the folks out there who are doing their own thing, making it work, being happy with what they are doing and leaving their mark on the world through it. Life is too short to do something each and every day that doesn't bring you some sort of satisfaction and delight."
Why were you drawn to coworking?
"The freedom of working from home or bouncing around coffee shops is great and all, but it does get a bit lonely when you're used to having human interaction on a daily basis. A coworking space just seemed like a perfect solution. I love it. I'm much more productive, I have a place to meet with clients. there's always cool folks around to meet and chat with, stellar coffee on site, etc. It's nice to have a spot to belong again."
"I’m a bit of a college football junkie. Don't expect much out of me on a Saturday in the Fall. Go Badgers."
