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 Sharpie® marker, gravel, and ingenuity.

She currently manages she and her husband Tony’s retail store Nerdvana Outpost in downtown Chambersburg, PA, creates products for their unique brands, works behind the scenes on Nerdvana’s e-comm store, and is in the start-up phase of at least three new brand ideas at any given time… while helping other small business owners make their own leaps to greatness and have an impact in their communities.

On her “off” time (what’s that?) she brainstorms business ideas with her awesome husband Tony and hangs out with her three ragdoll kitties.

She’s even been known to sleep… occasionally.

Her books can be ordered on Amazon and wherever else fine books are sold.
