Meet The Founders
Who started Power of Positivity?
Kristen Butler is the Founder and original Visionary of Power of Positivity that started in 2009. She started the brand because she had completely transformed her life after hitting rock bottom, using the power of positive thinking. She was so astonished by her results that she wanted to help others improve their lives as well by spreading positive inspirational messages.
Kristen always had a love for inspirational quotes and a loving, compassionate heart to help others. With a background in social media, computers, design and journalism, paired with her love of inspiration, knowledge and personal growth, Kristen’s page started to go viral.
Kristen considers herself a social media maven since 1998 (only 14 at the time), where she was on bolt.com and quickly became one of the top 3 influencers. Back then, she started a popular group called “Bolt Beauties” that focused on inspiration and inner beauty. She started posting quotes and inspiration here.
Kristen has also had a love for writing as early as she could remember, vowing she would someday grow up to be a book author. In high school, she was involved in journalism for years, where she also held the title of Editor in Chief. At the time, she wrote for her local newspaper as a contributing student writer. In college, she majored in Journalism and worked for her college magazine in the design department.
Before PoP, Kristen was a freelance writer, designer, and social media maven for clients. After a few years, she was able to dedicate her time fully to PoP and raise her two sweet girls.
Chris Butler, Co-Founder & COO
Chris feels that he and Kristen’s transformation calls forth a leadership role in helping others to do the same, “We have been through the darkness and are living the light. Creating Power of Positivity has been a gift to us. It has allowed us to work on our passion and raise our family. It all started with becoming aware of the negativity and working to improve each day, one step at a time.”
After releasing well over 100 pounds (and as much emotionally), he learned to treat his whole self well on both the inside and out. He is very passionate about weight loss, health, peace of mind, and plant-based nutrition.
Chris helped Kristen since the beginning of PoP’s inception in 2009. He, too, went through a complete transformation and had a deep inner calling to create something bigger than himself and serve others. Chris happily paired his knowledge in Business Management with Kristen’s expertise to create the global brand that PoP is today.
