As a creative it’s normal for me to notice textures on napkins, red-trimmed windows, planted pots nicely placed on patios, watercolor inspired wallpaper, food too beautiful to eat, unique door knobs, and patterned walls... the list goes on and on. It’s how my brain works. I see things and visualize it in a photo the moment I step foot in places. My husband finally just lets me wonder when I get in these moods, but what’s extra special is when I’m around other creatives like my bestie @jennydoesgrace and we don’t even have to speak a word to one another and just start snapping! 📸 This cute Italian restaurant in Georgetown, Bahamas was full of photo moments... enough so it was a full styled release in last months @createdbykristinkorn library!

When's the last time you gave someone an adda girl? You know... went out of your way to open your mouth, tell someone they are kicking ass, and did it solely out of the kindness of your heart... not because you were looking to motivate them in order to grow your paycheck in return. 🙄 Yeah, those moments... they matter a ton. Especially in this journey of finding your way on this road to business success. You are at the wheel and although you may be getting flat tire after flat tire along the way... what you are doing MATTERS. The risks you take, the faith you have... it inspires others to take action. Keep rotating those tires my friend... your journey is about to get REALLY intentional in a few days. Stay tuned... I'm releasing a new 14-day challenge that will surely have your wheels spinning... all I can say for now. 🤐 For now, I’m going to dive into my first pumpkin spiced latte for the season and enjoy every last sip. 🎃🍁 Oh, and @amoswatson2004 - thank you for those unexpected words of encouragement as I left your salon this morning.... they meant a lot. 😘
A little reminder for all my boss ladies out there 🙌🏻 When other people treat you poorly, keep being YOU.⠀ ⠀ Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person YOU are.⠀ ⠀ Don’t let the silly little dramas of each day get YOU down either.⠀ ⠀ Stay positive when negativity surrounds you.⠀ ⠀ You’ve heard this saying before ... now live it 👉🏻👉🏻 “Keep calm and carry on.” ⠀ ⠀ I put so much emphasis on positivity inside my branding company because I know from experience it takes one positive thought to overpower an entire array of negative thoughts.⠀ ⠀ People who are able to find the one positive point in negative situations are the ones who never give up.⠀ ⠀ And I want that to be you!⠀ ⠀ Have a wonderful day ladies!! Don’t forget to send positive vibes someone else’s way 👊🏻🙌🏻😘
You already know that a brand palette is imperative to strengthening your personal brand but did you know that it's not only website design, social media images, and logos that you should be using those colors for?⠀😉 ⠀ I had a client message me a few weeks ago asking what she should wear for her professional photoshoot coming up. 👚👗My simple answer, your core brand colors.⠀ ⠀ Here's why.⠀👇🏼 Your headshot and lifestyle photos become the face of your brand and if your clothing colors don't match your brand palette then they throw off your entire message and confuse your audience about who you are.⠀ ⠀ Thus, losing the trust of your audience you are trying to build.⠀ ⠀ She messaged me after her photoshoot and was kicking herself. She scheduled the session because she wanted her marketing to look good but when she got to the studio there was a clothing lady there who talked her into wearing some of her more dressier tops.⠀ ⠀ And guess what? These tops weren't in this business owners' brand colors nor went along with her brand message.😆 ⠀ She knew the answer but asked me anyway... Do you think it's that important to have the (brand) colors or is just having the professional pics good?⠀ ⠀ And my reply... ⠀ I think the brand colors are totally important for clothing. The clothing type says a lot about someone but when the colors don’t match your brand it throws your message all off. Professional shots are nice but if they aren’t on-brand they don’t do much for you to strengthen your brand.⠀ ⠀ Lesson learned ladies... there's a reason when you google Mark Zuckerburg he's always in a blue on-brand t-shirt. Or when you google Kristin Korn - I'm always in my brand palette with a blush pink and black as my core colors. :) (scroll pics to see)⠀ ⠀ Another reason to #stayinyourlane boss ladies! Stick with who YOU are and stay consistent in your visual language everywhere you show up. :) PS. She rescheduled her photo shoot and is wearing her core brand colors this time. 🙌🏻 What are your two core brand colors?
I see so many women trying to build a personal brand around their business when instead they should be building a business around their personal brand!⠀ ⠀ First, find and build your lane. Then, add a vehicle or vehicles to it which fit your personal brand. Above all #stayinyourlane ⠀ A little Saturday business and #brandingtip ☀️ Enjoy your day my Insta friends!! 🙌🏻
Happy Friday my friends! 😊You made it! 👊🏻May your inbox be empty, your work deadlines met, your desk cleaned off, your schedule clear, and your weekend full of happiness. CHEERS to all you've accomplished this week! 👊🏻🙌🏻❤️✔️How are you celebrating? ...or should I ask, what will you be drinking? 🤣
Hey there Instafam! Some of you know me well, and others are a bit newer to the party (welcome, by the way)! Every now and again I like to use a post just to remind my followers exactly what it is I’m doing here.⠀ ⠀ I'm Kristin Korn. 🙋🏻♀️⠀ ⠀⠀ A Girl Mom + Coach’s Wife, Serial Entrepreneur, Obsessive Creative, Margarita Lover, Deep Introvert, and Island Girl.⠀ ⠀ After 5 years in my successful corporate career (sales and marketing for a large alcohol bev wholesaler, hence my love for margs!) I left to start my own company. ⠀ ⠀ So for the past 7 years I’ve been a full time entrepreneur, now living in Kansas (with my Basketball Coaching Husband and our two young girls), where I’ve started several online based businesses which includes everything from skincare, to children’s clothing, to online educational training which guides business owners on how to start, strengthen, and scale their personal brand and business. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve trained hundreds upon hundreds of business owners over the last several years to step into their uniqueness and use social media as a way to grow their client leads and their business using a focused media mix content strategy.⠀ ⠀ My passion always falls back to creating a memorable brand identity for my clients! ⠀ ⠀ Throughout my branding journey there’s one thing I’ve learned that holds true with every business owner I teach... The most practical way to find success and create a strong personal brand isn’t to change who you are ...but instead to lean in more and accept every weird quirk about yourself ... because by doing so, you will not only be more at ease and confident about who you really are ...but it will magnify who you are to become. ❤️⠀ ⠀ Tell me something about yourself! 👇🏼
What if the let downs you are experiencing right now is God doing the busy work of preparing the road ahead for your growth. He’s been whispering in your ear to stay in your lane and He would provide ...and you’ve continued to do just that. You’ve turned off all the noise. You’ve studied marketing plans and new platforms for scaling and impacting more people. And you’ve even invested in training and advice from industry leaders in order to help take you where you want to go. It’s all falling into place. Your vision is coming to life. Doors are opening out of nowhere left and right. But what if all of a sudden a rug slips out from under you. A rug that’s been your safe place for several years. A place where your passion developed, your confidence collected, and your skills were sharpened. A pivot you never saw coming but one that needed to be made in order to become more. More of the creative and educator that He put you on this earth to be. Seeing the rug go will still leave a bruise but nothing a bright future can’t grow through! No matter the shit you’ve been through, the gossip that’s been spread, the insecurity others have, it affects NONE of what God has planned for you. Kristin, stay in your lane and praise Him for He yet again showed you He’s up to bigger things for you and none of this is by accident. It’s all in His plan. “God has already prepared the way... He's now preparing you!” I needed to write this to myself... but I hope it can impact you as well. ♥️ #stayinyourlane
I will never have to tell my daughters that I didn’t go ALL IN. I will never have to tell them that I didn’t...⠀ ⠀ put a stake in the ground in who I was and who I wasn’t because I was scared to become an expert.⠀ ⠀ lean into my God-given favors to help others succeed because I was afraid to shine a light on myself.⠀ ⠀ close a chapter when it felt right even though I felt bullied into doing things ‘their’ way.⠀ ⠀ pivot when needed even though staying the course as everyone else seemed easier.⠀ ⠀ take risks when I knew to my core it was the right thing to do to move closer to my destination. ⠀ ⠀ invest in my business to be able to scale and leave a bigger legacy behind.⠀ ⠀ lock arms with those who have gone where I want to go even if staying in my comfort zone felt easier. ⠀ ⠀ I'm all in with my Kristin Korn brand and vehicles I choose to drive me to my destination and I'm proud of the decisions I've taken in the past and even more excited about the decisions I'm taking right now.⠀ My lesson in all of this today... Go all-in with WHO you are, not who others say you need to be. With me?
Girl, it’s Friday! ... swap the sweats for your fav pair of jeans that make you feel AMAZING. Go put on those bold earrings you keep not-wearing that are sitting at the bottom of your jewelry drawer. Go curl your hair. And go BE INSPIRED today!!!! I’m here to tell you ...⠀ ⠀ You can do hard things⠀ You can start something new ⠀ You can pivot ⠀ You can be bold ⠀ You can impact thousands ⠀ You can be YOU⠀ ⠀ Let me know below what you were inspired to do today?!?? 👊🏻🙌🏻🙋🏻♀️😘
Ever thought what you would tell your younger self? Ya know... the one who never listened to anyone. 😆 ... or maybe that was just me 🙋🏻♀️ You see, I became a full time entrepreneur at the age of 30 and I have never looked back. Like ever!!! It’s been the greatest adventure ever. But if I could go back and tell that new mom ONE thing, it would be: it’s ok to ask for help and you aren’t going to die to read a personal development book. Who else thought they were too cool to learn from a book?!? I was. If I knew that, I’d have had a stronger confidence in who I was and what I was doing and I could have scaled my businesses much faster! However, I’m thankful for my journey… it made me into the creative business woman I am today! And oh what a journey it’s been! ♥️ How about you boss lady, what would you tell your younger self?
When Sunday rolls around it’s very easy for us to look ahead and say ”what's on the agenda this week?” In our passion to possess more and more, we often fall into the trap of setting new priorities and working that we seldom take the time to enjoy the work we've done the week prior.⠀ ⠀ We never take time to relax, enjoy what we've accomplished, and enjoy the fruit of our labor.⠀ ⠀ On Friday I was super disappointed in myself that I didn't get a big priority knocked out. Heck, let me be honest, I didn't even start it. Getting my new podcast up is a huge priority for me and it just wasn't in the cards this past week.⠀ ⠀ I knew what I was doing to myself and I didn't like it. I was telling myself that all the work that I had put into other priorities shouldn't be celebrated like starting my podcast when they TOTALLY should be.⠀ ⠀ I made huge strides in re-designing my Think Tank Toolbox sales page, had set up several new welcome email sequences, and I had even taken time to go enjoy friends and celebrate my husband's birthday two nights this week.⠀ ⠀ So out loud to a friend I validated all that I did well this week. It was so motivating to say them all out loud.⠀ ⠀ I encourage you to make a decision to not only enjoy the fruits of your labor but to approve and enjoy yourself as well. ⠀ ⠀ Even if what you did this past week was ’small’ begin to accept and enjoy yourself where you are right now today. As you move into a new week know that you are right where you need to be today. Don't for a second believe anything to this point has been worthless of being celebrated. ⠀ ⠀ Will you do that with me??

When we started dating 17 years ago we were celebrating his birthday with a 2am Denny’s breakfast after a night at the bars. #collegelife Our conversation revolved around drama with friends, drink specials, and the latest sports news. Today we celebrated #38 with a 10am breakfast downtown at The Chef after his staff meeting and getting the girls on the bus to school. ♥️ today our conversation revolved around business decisions, dreams and plans. I love you Bradley Korn and all that we’ve grown into becoming. HAPPY BIRTHDAY babe!! 😘
