Let's Work Together
After building my own startup from zero to 8-figures as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and 20+ yr in marketing, I have the answers you seek (and the battle scars to prove it). Come to the Academy and I'll get you back on the right track, with a clear plan to drive business and peace of mind that you will never struggle again. My specialities are passive income, strategy, and automation.
Meet Krista, Business Mentor, Marketer, and Entrepreneur
I began my career in Silicon Valley in Product Marketing and Product Management, working for B2B SaaS companies (Oracle and Autodesk). My sub-specialties are CRM, Education, Localization, and Globalization. Then in 2005, I became a founding partner of a digital VR/3D/Video agency, Transparent House, which services Fortune 500 companies and grew it to 8-figures and over 4 offices with a stellar reputation for quality and creativity. In 2017, I sold my shares and have been B2B consulting and coaching ever since under my own company, Krista Mollion LLC. My audience is influencers, ambitious mid-to-senior level career professionals, and small business owners, coaches, and consultants. I help them define and plan out a strong content marketing strategy, build self-confidence and set up marketing systems and sales pages that translate into profits.
My career highlights are:
📌 Built an 8-figure VR/3D agency from scratch with no previous background in that industry and no outside funding
📌 Beat out well-established competitors who had worked in the industry much longer for key clients such as Apple and HP
📌 Grew the agency from zero dollars to 8 figures in two years
📌 Grew 4 offices worldwide
📌 Hired over 100 people over 12 years, both in-house and as contractors
📌 Managed staff remotely with very little turnover and never missed a deadline
📌 Grow a B2B consultancy to 7 figures with zero employees and no paid advertising
📌 Writing my first book now on business growth
The soft skills/extras that help me in my career:
🔵 I connect with people, easily and deeply, both in-house and on the client-side as well as partners for my target industries. This includes social selling and networking, both in-person and online
🔵 I know B2B SaaS Marketing better than most, having worked in Silicon Valley with hundreds of companies as a Product Manager and through my agency and then consulting as a PM and Marketer, so I am well-connected and knowledgeable
🔵 I am a visionary who always looks for new sales opportunities, both clients and products. Example: When the Real Estate Development market tanked in 2009, I had luckily worked hard two years prior to establish clients in Education and Healthcare for my agency and while many of our competitors went out-of-business or had significant layoffs, we thrived through the crisis.
🔵 I am a life-long learner and invest a portion of my income every year back to learning new skills for my own professional and personal growth. I push myself outside my comfort zone to learn new skills.
🔵 I am a writer and write 10,000 words every day, 7 days weekly. I write mostly about Entrepreneurship and Personal Development but I also write Fiction and Poetry and am currently working on my memoir about growing up with a difficult childhood. Please follow me on Linkedin or Medium.

-I love to read. I'm constantly reading 4 types of work: 1. Professional Publications 2. Fiction 3. Self-Help Books 4. Poetry
-I'm a really good cook. In fact, my secret dream was always to do something with food. In the meantime, my friends and family are my tasting committee.
-I have 4 kids, two boys, and two girls. This should earn me a badge somewhere.
-I speak English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish
-I have dual nationalities from United States and France
-Because I'm well-traveled, I tend to understand different cultural nuances better than many
