Kiersten will be giving a Tedx Talk in Sedona on November 3, 2018.
Becoming the carpenter of her own life meant doing things she never imagined and discovering buried truths along the way. Eleven years ago, a 34-year-old ex-TV network executive & mom of two unexpectedly went from corporate to carpentry. Without woodworking experience, funding, or furniture design know-how, she built an internationally known kids’ furniture brand called Mod Mom Furniture out of their 300 square foot garage in Burbank, California. For four years—while covered in sawdust and sweat—she built close to 400 toy boxes and play table sets before partnering with several American-made manufacturers and eventually signing a North American licensing deal with a Colorado-based furniture company.
In 2011, Kiersten braved ABC’s Shark Tank and convinced two Sharks to invest in her company. Mod Mom Furniture has not only been featured in magazines, TV shows, and modern design books, but is being purchased by families, celebrities, and interior designers from around the globe.
At many points throughout the journey, Kiersten found herself facing common entrepreneurial obstacles in addition to shocking realizations that came in like a wrecking ball, nearly demolishing all she knew, who she was as a person, and the family she loved. She learned she needed some serious courage, faith in the power of vulnerability, and a very sturdy tool belt.
At Tedx Sedona 2018, she will share her unique story as well as tools she used to help build the life she wanted as she became the carpenter of her own life over the past decade.
