I’m Kristina Whittam, Graduate Coach at StephMyLife Freelancer Bootcamps. I joined the team in April 2021 after completing the accelerated freelancer bootcamp the previous year. Quite quickly after doing the course, I knew I was ready to give up my 9-5 in favour of a freer life, not chained to a job which had drained me over the years!
Like many during the pandemic, I re-evaluated my values and although I’d forged a successful 10 year long career in corporate sales, I often found myself at the end of the working day yearning for a job that was more fulfilling, that I was genuinely passionate about. That’s when I came across Steph’s Bootcamps, and not to sound dramatic but doing the course really changed my life. I soon quit my job and began working full time with clients and am now back to help others do the same thing. I love working with students on the courses because not only do I get excited about web development, but I also love talking all things business. A 10 year long corporate career sticks with you, so when I coach you, you’ll get business advice as well as technical help.
Since swapping business suits for web design, I’ve been able to combine my love for travel simultaneously with my freelance work. My work/life balance has never been better! When I’m not working, you can find me throwing shapes to 80s classics, flower arranging, or tending to my growing brood of rescue animals!
So where to find me at SML Bootcamps?
I’ve loved the course from start to finish. You’d think that a call on a Sunday morning for 8 weeks would require some effort but theyw ere my favourite part of my week and I’m missing them already. Kristina is a natural coach – she’s down to earth, bubbly, fun & such a pleasure to talk to. She motivates you and lifts you up in ways you didn’t know were possible. I found myself feeling so inspired after our calls each week & loved how they were laid out, each week taking away something new.@mkcreativewebdesign
The Scale Your Business course with Kristina has been super beneficial. I have learnt so much in the last 8 weeks! I’m now mega motivated to continuously work on my business goals and have learnt many tools from the course to support me on my journey. The course has helped in so many areas from Social Media, business tools to using SMART goals…
… The course is fantastic and I would certainly do another SYB course, highly recommend thank you, Kristina. I will miss the zoom calls each week!@tribewebdesigns
This is my second Scale Your Business course. The course was well laid out and each week had a different topic to focus on relevant to freelancing and running a business. It was especially helpful for those that were working still alongside running a business.@andecreation
