We had the good fortune of connecting with Kristen Wimberly and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kristen, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind the success of Miss Kupid has been support. It truly takes a team of people who want to see your business grow with you to help you succeed and get to the next level. I can’t tell you how many times my friends or family members have come and helped make gift baskets or worked behind the scenes as production for our new show on Youtube, Kupid’s Korner. Without support, I would be struggling to do so much by myself so I am truly grateful for them.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Miss Kupid, LLC is a professional love agency with a variety of opportunities for individuals to take advantage of. We offer dating services for men and women, as well as consultations and dating advice for men and women trying to please they’re significant other. We also offer gift baskets and gift boxes for any occasion you’re celebrating.
What I’m most excited for is our new series, Kupid’s Korner that was just launched on Social Media platforms and Youtube. Kupid’s Korner is an ongoing platform used to provide insight to women, men, and couples about relationships and dating in the 21 Century. When I look back at far we’ve come, I got where I am through prayer and God, and a strong support system. Also, motivation, drive and creativity allow me to set a part from the rest.
I’ve learned to focus on myself and my brand. Don’t worry about what others are doing, and don’t be easily distracted by others’ journey. What God has for you is for you.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to my family and friends that have supported me on this journey and have helped contribute to the growth of the Miss Kupid brand. To my friends and family who have woke up on early mornings and have stayed up super late, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.
