Playing Small Moment

Krystal realized she was playing small early in her freelance career when she had difficulty charging people for her work. It wasn’t until she found the support of a networking group that she was able to become comfortable asking for her true value.

The Wake Up Call

Krystal started a free networking group named “Women of Denver.” When she decided to make it a subscription based group, she was overwhelmed with anxiety from the responsibility of it all. Her wake up call came when she realized she needed to build her own confidence before she could lead the group using her full potential.

Style of Leadership

Krystal wants people to know the why behind the things she preaches, and she allows people to see the mistakes she makes, and how she moves on to do better the next time.

What Are You Excited About?

Krystal is excited about launching her online course, Stand-out for Success.

Current Business Challenge

Krystal struggles with overbooking herself. She often needs to remind herself that it is ok to put something on the back burner.

Your Support System

It wasn’t always the case, but Krystal has become a master at asking for help. Her husband backs her up in life, and in business, and the leadership team from the “Women of Denver” provide her with welcome support.

Leadership Practice

Krystal allows herself to be authentic in front of other people.
