A RECORD-BREAKING 2-POINT 5-MILLION DOLLARS LAST YEAR.

00:09:51;24      our company grew a lot during the pandemic // I think with a lot of people being at home // a hobby (like stickers and planning out their day) just gave them some comfort 

KATE SAYS HER STICKER EMPIRE STARTED AFTER SHE SHARED AN IMAGE ON INSTAGRAM SEVEN YEARS AGO.

KATE ANTESBERGER:

00:04:17;11    I had posted a picture of how I organized my calendar on Instagram  // 00:03:42;17 the planner community saw it and said, oh, you should sell these, and that’s (LAUGH) where it started for us, that day, and never turned back.
