    CEO Haystack Mountain Goat Dairy 25 year natural products industry veteran

    “What Kristine has created with Brandamentals Academy™ is exactly what every emerging brand needs. Her practical no-nonsense approach to sophisticated and smart brand strategy is often out of reach financially for most companies because branding agencies often charge 5 to 10 times as much for the same advice. Kristine has created a step by step process to ensure that your brand will look and feel professional and ready for prime time. I can’t say enough about the DIY aspects of this approach with the added bonus of personal check-ins with a true marketing professional. So before you hire that branding agency, consider signing up with Brandamentals Academy™ today – you won’t regret it.”.
