I help people grow an online brand so they can turn their passion into profits.
BlogFREE 5 Day Bootcamp


Hello! I’m Kristen and I’m here to help you turn your favorite hobby into a side hustle. Here’s my story in a nutshell: I moved to California in 2014 and decided to take my love for drinking wine online by documenting my wine related adventures through my blog called “Wine Country Chick” (link here). It quickly turned into a full blown (and profitable) side hustle and has since evolved into my passion for helping people turn their favorite hobbies into profitable side hustles. You can find me on Instagram at @therealkristenmarie (here)


I’m guessing you’re here because you have a hobby and can’t seem to figure out how to turn your hobby into a profitable side hustle. I specialize in branding, social strategy, and blogging for all people looking to turn their hobbies into a money-making side hustle. If any of this is remotely true for you, check out the resources on my blog for more.
