This week on the Creatives Do Money Podcast

Cris and I talk all about expanding from being a solopreneur into a real agency, how she grew into her own after a really serious financial low point, and what it’s been like to grow foundational financial stability from her own business, as opposed to traditional employment.

After a lengthy career in sales & Marketing, Cris accidentally started her own creative agency in 2015. In 2017 her husband joined her and in 2020 her son joined the team too. Together with they help clients to launch online programs, create email funnels, manage their podcast/youtube and more… basically all the things that stifle the fun and creation for a client and often keeps them blocked from growing. 

When Cris isn’t cuddled up at home with her dog, a good book, and a glass of wine, she’s often traipsing around foreign lands with her husband and son, exploring and learning from different cultures and beliefs systems.
