I am so happy to bring you my latest Featured Truthteller interview! It’s with Kristina Kuzmic, a hilarious vlogger I was introduced to via one of her many viral videos about the joys and agonies of parenting.

The reason Kristina was such a breath of fresh air to me, as someone who has been on a “serious” spiritual and personal growth path for years and years, is that she’s proof that truth and authenticity don’t have to be so heavy! She’s the kind of unpretentious woman you just want to sit down and have a drink with—and you’ll laugh, cry, and gain a huge dose of wisdom in the process.

Through her awesome “mom-centric” YouTube videos, which are all about what it means to raise kids and juggle life’s challenges in this crazy day and age, Kristina has struck a chord with parents and women who are tired of the boring old advice and are in need of more authenticity. Thankfully, Kristina has it in spades. She’s changing the world through her humor and realness. In fact, The Huffington Post referred to her videos as “parenting comedy at its finest,” and Kristina’s first reality show, The Ambush Cook, was chosen from among 20,000 entries to air on the Oprah Winfrey Network!

Kristina talked to me in depth about how humor and playfulness became “another way to feel more free to speak my truth.” Through her journey from growing up in war-torn Croatia, to finding a way to contribute to the world at one of her lowest points, Kristina inspired me with her life’s motto: “Everybody has something to give, and that little something can be turned into something great.”
