Kristina Cole (Street Articles Author)

Hi! I am Kristina, budding author, wife, mom, entrepreneur. I have been in the Financial Services Industry for over 18 years and have decided to pursue other avenues that interest me and fulfill a deeper need to be creative and engage with others. As for the Financial side, I’ve been on the inside in compliance, working with Financial Advisors, who are the money managers. You could say I’ve been a financial cop for a good stretch of my adult life.

I began a journey into affiliate marketing to drive my desire to have a creative outlet, to spend time with my young children and to explore the areas of life that interest me most; namely my family, food & wine, travel and artistic endeavors. My goal is to share my journey into the unknown with others, with the hope of providing content you’ll find entertaining, enlightening and maybe even occasionally a cautionary tale.

Feedback and input into articles I have published is always welcome and I will get back to you.

Binky Buddy
For better or worse, my daughter’s love affair with her binky is surpassed by nothing else. It’s an addiction, and one I’m not entirely sure how to overcome. In part it alleviates melt downs and temper tantrums, it helps an otherwise difficult sleeper to drift off. It is her best…
