We had the good fortune of connecting with Kirsten Rincon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kirsten, what inspires you?
I am inspired by life. By everyday people and situations. I’m inspired by sharing people’s stories in a way that intrigues other people. That’s why I became a multimedia producer. Through videography, photography and even graphic design – we’re able to share stories to people that otherwise would have never known about them. Everything in life is about connecting with others, whether that mean choosing your life partner, or spending your hard earned money to purchase a product/service. So I built my business with the inspiration of connecting with the human experience.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I decided to pursue Journalism in college due to my passion for writing. It wasn’t until I took a documentary filmmaking class, that I realized that I wanted to become a visual storyteller. At first, it wasn’t easy. There were a lot of mistakes and also fear that resonated deep inside of me that stunted my growth. But because I stayed persistent on my path, my creative craft eventually became my sole provider. I learned that in order to grow your business, you need to have an undoubtable confidence in what you’re doing and that you need to welcome failures as growing pains. My brand MEDIA CORNER has grown instrumentally over the last 6 years and has been able to help share so many people’s story.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend were visiting me in my hometown, Miami, FL I would book a spa day at my favorite hotel The Standard. Then I’d go have an amazing culinary experience at Mila for dinner. The next day would obviously be a good ol’ beach day (away from the touristy sections). We’d of course need to set some time to check out Wynwood Walls and the Design District. Also have a fun shopping experience at Brickell City Center. And watch the sunset as we walk over the Key Biscayne Bridge.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to dedicate my shoutout to my mentor, John Kelly. With his guidance and unconditional support, I was able to build the courage to quit my 9 to 5 corporate job and create my business. His gym, Live Free CrossFit became my first official client and the rest is history. Eight years later, my company still works alongside his to help share their stories using the power of social media.
