Bios

[This one’s a long one…]

Kristen Joy Laidig decided she was “unemployable” at the tender age of six when she started her first business making and selling pet rocks with nothing but a Sharpie¼ marker, gravel, and ingenuity. 

A serial entrepreneur, in 2003 she turned her life-long love of writing into a full-time career teaching authors and entrepreneurs how to create books that bring them business and turning authors into successful authorpreneurs through her internationally-known brand, The Book NinjaŸ.

After discovering how to thrive through chronic illness and an autoimmune disorder, Kristen went on to write and publish 18 Kindle books in 18 weeks (authoring a total of over 40 books), start over 50 publishing companies, publish over 200 books and e-books, teach hundreds of webinars, coach thousands of authors from idea to published, build a livelihood from negative $300-a-month to a multi-six-figure business, study martial arts at four different schools with three disciplines, earn her black belt in karate, get her conceal-carry license and eat way too much chocolate.

She currently changes lives through her students
 one published message at a time, manages her two retail stores Toy Box Gifts & Wonder¼ and Nerdvana Outpost in the heart of her newfound hometown, Chambersburg, PA, is in the start-up phase of at least three new businesses at any given time, and generally causes anyone reading this bio to be out of breath.

On her “off” time (what’s that?) she brainstorms business ideas with her awesome husband, the great Public Domain Expert himself, Tony Laidig, and hangs out with her two ragdoll kitties. She’s even been known to sleep… occasionally.

Besides on her website at KristenJoysBlog.com, she can also be found building relationships online at her second home in Facebookland, brainstorming business ideas in her hot tub, playing with her two ragdoll kitties, and occasionally aimlessly roaming the Star Wars and pet supply aisles with her man at Target hunting down toys for themselves and their cats.
