In 2014, Kylie founded Occasio Enterprises, a company which specialises in social media influencer marketing.

- Mental health – Kylie has overcome Borderline Personality Disorder, yet is still classed as having an ADHD brain. She has attempted suicide a few times when younger, battled with self-harm, depression and had severe post natal depression. With the help of her psychologist, she overcame her obstacles and now views her ADHD brain as a blessing.

Testimonials from attendees:
I want to thank you for such a fabulous seminar – Social Media for Money. What I liked best about it was the 5 different speakers that united on the fundamentals that all businesses need. It reminded me of the strength of five fingers – a helping hand, and how they all support a solid platform.
Loved it, would definitely go again. Julie”
