Episode 21. Kristina Karlsson On Positive Intentions, Goals & Dreams

This week we’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Kristina Karlsson, founder of kikki.K, one of our all-time favourite brands, to the podcast. 

Kristina founded kikki.K after noticing a gap in the market for beautifully designed stationery, and  is truly one of the most inspirational people we know; both in her capacity as an entrepreneur, and for her outlook on life in general. 

Wellbeing, learning, creativity and gratitude are the cornerstones of Kristina’s approach to life, and we cannot wait for you to soak up her advice. 

With the new year on the horizon, this is the perfect time to reflect on all that has happened thus far and look ahead to the future. 

We hope that you will love getting to know Kristina, her invaluable words of wisdom and take away some hints and tips for approaching the festive season with gratitude. 

A quick audio note: as we were recording in a bustling restaurant you may hear some background noise. We hope you’ll enjoy the buzz of the room (and that it’s not too distracting!).
