Notes from Chris
Episode 1230Welcome to Throwback Thursday / “Where are they now?” where we take an in-depth look at someone whose story has evolved considerably since we first featured them. Recent segments have featured someone leading urban hiking tours in San Francisco and a guy who sells a lot of hair ties and shampoo to other men with long hair. Today, in our latest feature, we’ll hear from Kirsten La Greca… a former TV producer who left her job when her e-commerce side hustle selling monogrammed scarves began to take off. But in this update, there’s a twist! Listen to today's episode to hear Kirsten's updates...
