I help people start and grow profitable businesses they love.
Speaker, author, and coach
A captivating keynote speaker, author, business strategist and trainer, queen of start-ups and champion of encouragement, Kim has an unapologetic, no excuses attitude that inspires her audiences and clients to bring their best every day. Her approach for teaching business fundamentals for success on the stage is unlike any other you’ve experienced. She will have you laughing, smiling and learning all at the same time, even while teaching financials and break-even analysis.
For the past 30 years, she has delivered no-fluff, no-nonsense strategic planning and advising for organizations and small businesses. Her coaching and training services have resulted in 250+ small business starts. She started 6 businesses of her own including retail, service, and manufacturing ventures. All this gives her credibility, quite a few great stories, but more importantly a unique understanding of what it is really like to be a business owner. She just gets it! In her own words – “There is nothing else I would rather do than be my own boss – I have no regrets. The freedom to create, to make my own path forward is worth every all-nighter and tear.”
Her book, The DAMN Plan: To Find Love, Freedom, and Money In Your Business calls readers to answer the question, “Why haven’t you done what you said you would always do?” No matter if she is speaking or advising clients, Kim truly believes everyone is capable of taking authority over their lives if they are willing to take action on their DAMN Plan.
When she isn’t helping others achieve their dreams, she spends as much time as she can with her three kids and five granddaughters. The love of friends and family carries us through tough times. More than that, we have an obligation to them – they are watching to see if we are doing what we said we would to achieve our dreams.
