Kristin Larsen is a full time blogger.

Her blog Believe In A Budget was started in January 2015, when she shared her journey on saving money and getting out of debt by doing random paying jobs.

With limited experience with blogging, she figured that if she could get one person to read her blog and help that person start a side hustle, her goal would be met. Now, Kristin is making thousands of dollars each month all thanks to her blog.

Kristin runs a highly successful Pinterest course called聽Pinterest Presence聽which Katie is currently taking and highly recommends for anyone interested.

Welcome, Kristin!
