I’m Being Transparent Here

Do you have a GINORMOUS dream?

A dream that really scares you but you know someday will be here soon so you’ll just dream then? I know exactly how you feel! That was me!

Back in the day I heard this quote “and the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”

I was really stuck in my muck! Big time!

❣Do you ever feel this way? #stuck?

❣ We all want to reach and strive for that dream but then it’s so scary out there we retract into our comfort zone where it’s warm and comfy.. it’s safer here ..

❣It’s less vulnerable..less comparing going on.. less self-doubt…less fear.

When Frank came and asked me to help him run #anchorrestoration 9 years ago my first reaction was “hell no” I was toooo scared and then two days later I said okay.

❣ Fast forward 9 years …

I said yes to speaking on a panel with other women business owners.. I really wanted to say no lol…I knew I had to say yes because again I have some Big Dreams to achieve with #anchorrestoration..this is one of the steps on my journey to move me forward.. it was so scary for me!
❣ I prayed, I cried, I threw up, I prayed some more and gracefully I made it through it..WAHOO!
❣and when it was over and I came out of the fear fog, eight women came up and bless my heart.. they thanked me for being vulnerable and for sharing

Thank you again #wbc I so appreciate you asking me
#believeinyourself just go for it!

I am an (award winning) womanpreneur, artist, speaker, empowerment leader and knowledge seeker. I share my stories of adversity with fear, in business and in life, with vulnerability and being awakened and how I boldly built a company to new levels and took risks to soar. Along my journey, my belief in myself, tenacity, courage, confidence, hope and faith grew exponentially. You will hear my message of enlightenment and my life changing principles for fearless living that will assist and inspire others to jump to their greatest potential. I hope to inspire my community to find their strength to live courageously, ignite their flame and leap joyously. I believe we should continually upgrade our dreams to preserve our road to happiness. You need to believe it can be done- this will set your mind in motion to find a way to do it. I (along with my husband) bootstrapped our way to building a local, woman owned enterprise in Salt Lake City; Anchor Water Damage & Restoration. While building Anchor (2008-2016) I have been recognized in the community 8 times with the following: • Nationally Recognized 2016 Best of the Best -Top 3 ‘Women in Restoration’ 2016 Remediation and Restoration Magazine (October issue) • 2016 Enterprise 7 Award: Woman Business Owner • 2015 and 2014 Best of State • 2013 30 Women to Watch- Utah Business Magazine • 2013 Outstanding Entrepreneur • 2011 Woman Business Owner of the Year – NAWBO SLC • 2009 Small Business of the Year • 2013 Kris graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program • 2012 GE Capital Banking on Women program • 2011 Won the SCORE/Sam’s giveaway (2 companies per state were awarded this) I love being involved in the community. I help out by serving on committees and volunteering. I serve on the Granite Foundation Board and have held positions at Chamber West, NAWBO along with other organizations. I was a mentor (2016) for the Women of Worth foundation. I reside in South Jordan, Utah with my husband of 33 years and my 2 children.
