Brian and Kristin met in the beginning of 2016. Although we came from different backgrounds, we both had a strong desire to work with people and help them live their best, most authentic lives. Best Connections, LLC was created from our long conversations about wanting to make a difference and help people have relationships that energized and enhanced their lives. Both Brian and Kristin have experienced divorce and the myriad of emotions and changes it brings to a life. We are able to use that experience to help us understand what others go through in a judgement-free environment. Our intention is to validate others' emotions and thoughts while helping them develop an action plan to get them to where they want to be. We use our own experiences, education, knowledge, and proven materials to provide a program that launches lives and relationships in ways never thought possible.
