181 Kristen N. M. Johnson – Nursing, Aesthetics & Positivity

We could all use a dose of positivity and today’s guest is just that. Kristen Johnson is a nurse, licensed aesthetician, and now, a recently published author. She is also a fabulous example of someone who is doing it all: juggling family, work, and even outreach.

In this episode, Kristen shares her incredible journey into the beauty world, explains how she powered up, and talks us through the process of writing and publishing her book, The Waterwell Integrative Wellness Guide. We talk about which came first: the aesthetics or the nursing. We also swap tips on building a successful and grounded business team.

Listen to this episode to learn why getting yourself in order leads to you feeling more positive, the best questions to ask a potential hire, and why Kristen doesn’t like the word “journal”.
