Lessons from Local Leaders:

Kristen Wilhelm

Have you ever felt like your life is a non-stop round of ‘Tetris’, with family, career, and personal goals all demanding a piece of you? Our latest episode features a guest who’s mastered this very game, inviting us into the whirlwind of expanding a business while balancing life’s other puzzle pieces. As a studio owner morphed their space into a wellness hub, they navigated construction bedlam and the pandemic’s curveballs, all while keeping staff and personal ambition at the forefront.

Strap in as we journey through the transformation from a simple salon to an all-in-one destination for self-care, revealing the arduous path of managing growth and the pressure of second chances. Kristen doesn’t shy away from the raw truth of entrepreneurship—their personal evolution and the adaptability it demands. We find common ground in the universal struggle of managing a business and a household, blending tales of resilience and trust that bind the two worlds together.

The essence of our conversation shifts to the art of memory and the power it holds in cementing customer loyalty and forging lasting relationships. Our guest shares how pivotal moments and life-altering changes have taught them to embrace adaptation as the key to unforeseen opportunities. Each recollection is a testament to the delicate dance between professional pursuits and the reality of personal life—proving that in the end, it’s the ability to evolve that defines success.
