26 Sep Lifting Female Entrepreneurs with Big Rich Money
I have been following Katja Presnal on socials for a while now. Having her as a gust to my podcast was such a treat. Her journey starts in 1997 when she meets her American helicopter pilot husband and decides to move to the US to be with him. Katja has since lived in four different countries and has three adult children now and returned to Finland few years ago.
While living in the US she started her eCommerce business and blog Skimbaco. This blog allowed Katja to work with big brands such as Walmart when blogging was still in its infancy. Katja is retelling her story and journey when she left Finland and why she came back.
She has recently also written a book with her business best friend Candice Kilpractic Brathwaite called Big Rich Money: How To Turn Your Business Intentions Into A Profitable Company Katja has also done the Finnish version of the book and audio file as well. Talking about being busy year for her.
I could not wait to dig on deep on her journey and yes we had to talk about Tom Cruise as well. Listen to find out why.
