Making the Most of Your Pinterest Strategy with Michelle Wintersteen

Episode #003 the Wingnut Social Podcast

Wingnut Social – Ep. 03 – Michelle Wintersteen

Joining Darla and Natalie on today’s show is Michelle Wintersteen, founder of MKW Graphics in San Diego, Ca. Michelle created the company in 2014 while attending The University of San Diego, where she earned two degrees, Visual Arts and Art History.

One thing that makes Michelle the envy of many entrepreneurs is that she often runs her company remotely, as she is passionate about traveling. Because of Michelle’s creative eye, she’s often inspired to use items in her design she discovered while traveling in nearly 40 countries…with many more to come! MKW has helped hundreds of small business owners (in San Diego and beyond) create visually compelling yet marketing-minded brands.

You will want to savor every second of this conversation that focuses on how   business owners can benefit from using Pinterest.
