The wonderful f-bombing Kristen Kalp of brandcampblog.com needs no introduction, this being her third time on the podcast. In this episode KK shares how to get paid and stay creative as a photographer and how to overcome and get past massive setbacks – all from her own experience.
Kristen is the woman, the magic, the brains, behind the incredible products, courses and programs including Brandcamp, the F-Yeah Club, Sales Without Shame, Dominatrixed, Go Your Own Way, That's What She Said and now… M-School.
I always love having her on the podcast, at the same time come into these interviews a little scared.
