Robin H. Ridley Designer + Wordsmith, Parfait Studio
"Kristin worked with me to refine Parfait Studio’s marketing strategies and find smarter ways to reach vegan and animal-friendly prospects. Her insights helped me view my business from a more objective angle and challenged me to try new things. She is an active and thoughtful listener, and was completely prepared for the various curve balls I threw her way. A bit like Mary Poppins—minus the ego and umbrella—she knows just how to balance the bitter pills with the sweet stuff. Kristin is a true professional and passionate about her work!"
"My work with Kristin Lajeunesse was both informative and deeply inspiring. She helped me get a solid grasp on who I was targeting with my work and I came away from our coaching session with a number of great audience building tasks that have now become habits that I still rely on to build my fan base. She was quick and unbelievably thorough with each of our follow up interactions, each with her trademark cheerful and encouraging demeanor. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

"Kristin dreamt the life, lives the life, and is now using her experience to teach the life. She’s an inspiration and offers a unique perspective on the how of leaving your 9 to 5, defining the meaning of success for you, and making money. It’s the perspective no on else has. Hers."

"Working with Kristin has been a complete pleasure and a gift. Her professionalism and expertise are invaluable for me both personally and professionally. Not only has she helped us to accomplish our goals…but she has also armed me with an arsenal of information that I will be able to use again and again as the organization continues to expand our efforts and our reach. She is a magnificent teacher."

"When I came to Kristin’s YouTube series, my biggest intent was to be a vegan supporting another vegan. My other intent was put off the other millions of things that I should be doing. What I didn’t know was Kristin made this series for me. I’m a twenty-something, with a college degree and stuck in a dead-end job. Kristin’s videos have guided and inspired me to be unstuck. It took less than five videos for the constant feeling of despair to melt away and now I feel like “I got this.”
I now have my very own social accountability group, I’m practicing my music everyday, and I *finally* started working on my zombie script. For the rest of my life, whenever I feel overwhelmed, Kristin’s voice will play in my head and say, “Well Honey, you have to start somewhere!” Thanks Kristin!"

"Before [my business] had an internet presence—let alone a physical one—it existed solely as a bundle of concepts and general ideas in my head. I had no clear direction of what kind of company I wanted to create, let alone a concrete decision on whether I wanted to focus on vegan pastries, photography, music or editorial work—all ideas that I had toyed with in the 3.5 years following college.
I began working with Kristin in September 2013. During our first conversation, Kristin attentively listened to the scrambled ideas I had thrown around in my head for years, and I could tell that she was really listening because she had very pointed follow-up questions and suggestions to the things I was talking about. By the end of that conversation, I had selected the medium I was going to focus on, we had developed a potential name for my business, and she had given me a very specific toolkit to help organize my ideas (and my life) so that my dreams could become a reality.
Kristin’s expertise in the marketing realm, as well as being a fellow creative vegan and female entrepreneur proved invaluable to my experience of working with her. She contributed her time in many forms; through phone calls, Skype sessions and countless emails. She helped me make connections during our first week working together that have grown into lovely friendships. More than anything—she helped to inspire and instill in me the confidence that I needed to continue taking that next right action.
[My business’s] social media presence continues to grow daily, as do our opportunities to sell our pastries and connect with other like-minded (and not-so-like-minded) people. I am incredibly grateful for the work that we did together."

“Kristin was a breath of fresh air in our marketing strategies. She went above and beyond what I could have expected from our session. It was so wonderful to have a new perspective on what we have been trying to accomplish. She blew me away with her feedback and her thorough critiques of our materials and website. It’s likely I will be consulting with her in the future as we continue to grow our brand!”

“Kristin has been a pleasure to work with. Having started a new company, we were unsure of how to navigate the world of social media and what it would take for us to establish a real online presence. Her networking expertise, enthusiasm and outside of the box thinking has helped get our business off the ground!”

“I recently launched my first ever Kickstarter campaign and Kristin was incredibly helpful with laying out my goals and rewards. She showed me how to focus my campaign overall, and gave me great advice as far as timing things right. My campaign is for a feature film that I wrote the script for, and even though Kristin’s Kickstarter experience is different than my campaign, she was still able to easily translate her expertise so that it was specific to my project.”

“In a world where no one can keep up with the ever-changing landscape of social media marketing, Kristin seems to be always be one step ahead. Her insight and common sense approach to any issue has been invaluable and has been an asset to my campaigns and outreach. Straightforward and easy to work with, I couldn’t recommend her enough to any small business that wants to integrate their marketing campaigns and see their brand grow.”
“My experience with Kristin has been quite an uplifting one. Her uncanny ability to calmly assert any given situation with a unique blend of professionalism and endearment is truly comforting and inspiring. Kristin has aligned specific, realistic, successful goals for my approach to my business plan that were otherwise erratic. She is a joy to work with and has lifted a great weight of unnecessary stress for starting my venture. This is but one of her many talents of which she is truly gifted and passionate about.”

“Kristin’s insights on how best to utilize social marketing and where to improve our website, proved to be very helpful. Our attention was brought to the weaker points of our website’s performance and clear remedies were offered to make the most out of our “24-hour sales team.” We will plan to recommend Kristin’s services to our friends when they are looking to move up to the next level and need to step up their game.”
