Taking Control of Your Side Hustle with Karen Tolbert
Karen Tolbert currently lives in Greenville, South Carolina. With her husband, they have one grown daughter and two fur babies. They have been lucky to travel when her husband was in the US Navy and she was also in the Army National Guard before I met her husband. She now works as a remote Coder for an Urgent Care Company that has about 90 clinics across the United States. Karen has been coding since 2000 and have worked in many different settings.
Karen and her twin sister grew up in a family of creative souls and they decided in 2008 to make their hobby into a business and see where it could go. So Krafty Twins & Doubles was started. They sew handmade items for the kitchen and make Memory Bears. Over the last 10 years theyhave made about 400 Memory Bears! No two are ever exactly the same. Doing creative “work” after a day of work is a great way to use the other part of her brain and step away from sad or difficult charts.
