Ahoy there! I’m Kristen Kalp, founder of Brand Camp.
If you’d like to make your business align more closely with your heart while earning more than you thought possible, I’m your girl. Welcome.
My magical power is seeing through what’s being said to the nugget of truth gleaming just beneath the surface. By cutting through the muck, I help business owners get to the root of indecision, lack of focus, and feelings of overwhelm. To say it another way, I make the journey through business life clearer and simpler through intense work at a one-on-one level.
Your next chance to work with me happens in the Steer Your Ship program, an adventurous five-month program to help creative entrepreneurs like you figure out where you want to take your business and how you’re going to get there. Check it out if you’d like to work, play, and grow more than ever before in 2013.
I’m also a first-rate teacher and ringleader.
I believe laughter is the holiest prayer, and that fun is the ultimate tool for letting go, for expressing yourself, and for understanding the universe. I used to think everyone had my skill set – 1 part natural leadership, 2 parts rule-breaking and fun-making – but it turns out it’s pretty rare.
Finally, I’m an orphan hugger.
My soul’s purpose this time around is to master the art of loving and of being loved. I’m not meant to birth my own children, but to learn to love those tiny souls who present themselves to me for the time we’re together. A minute, an hour, a week, a month, a season: each one has been sent to teach me a lesson.
I’m still learning to let my heart crack open with love, even though there’s just as much pain as pleasure in the final tally.
Brand Camp allows me to fulfill this part of my calling, as it has funded 2012 orphan-hugging trips to Chennai, India and to Njabini, Kenya. I’m proud to have used this business to donate over $13,000 to life-changing charities in 2012. I’m most proud to support the work of Flying Kites, where I’m planning an extended trip for this year.
If you’ve made it this far, you’re probably one of my people. That means you’re heartstrong, lovely, and likely to laugh at a “That’s what she said” joke.
Yay, I’m so glad we’ve found one another!
As one of my people, I’ll bet you’d love weekly Brand Camp updates and assignments, so you never miss a thing that goes on ’round these parts. Welcome to the family!
