Pop on to Kirsty Raper’s eye-catching Instagram account, and you’ll spy a picture of her in a rather fabulous blue suit (#wardrobewins 💅). In it, Kirsty looks every inch the successful businesswoman she is today. Except this was the first time in ten years that Kirsty had donned a suit and, underneath the broad smile, Kirsty admits she was a bundle of nerves as she headed off to pitch to her first Instagram client (you can hear all about this moment 4.5 minutes into this week’s episode).
But Kirsty didn’t let a little thing like fear get in her way (she’s overcome far more difficult challenges in her life). And, just ten months since that photo was taken, Kirsty is now an Insta queen, crushing it with top tips and tricks that make Reels look like a walk in the park. Her incredible skills have won her clients she loves and word of mouth recommendations from far and wide… oh, and it took her just seven months to reach her first-year financial target!!! 🤩
