Behind the Boss Mask

VK’s Formal-ish Bio

Victoria Klein (VK) is a Writer, Speaker, + former Podcast Host focused on educating entrepreneurs to accomplish their personal vision of success by reigniting their natural curiosity. Her book on the subject is in the works.

And when she’s not indulging her curiosity or sharing insights on her blog @ behindthebossmask.com, you can find VK indulging in lost-track-of-time conversations where no topic is off-limits, copious amounts of anime, + the spectacular food of Austin, Texas.

Curious about her alter ego? VK is also a student at the University of Texas at Austin, pursuing a degree in Japanese Language + Culture, with the goal of becoming a Japanese-to-English translator for the food, technology, and entrepreneur industries. (Moving to Japan is a bucket-list-goal of hers too!)
