I was interested in having Kim speak because she works terrifically well with our Indian Reservation-based clients on difficult business start-up matters. Kim helped our group by making financial education fun, easy and successful for our clients. What makes Kim’s (The DAMN Plan) programs different from other programs is her accessibility to clients and ability to convey complex information.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Kim and hired her to speak at several of our events. Each event was different. We’ve asked Kim to tailor her approach for our clients, vary her topics and bring new tools to benefit our attendees. The reviews from our clients who attended Kim’s sessions continue to bring stellar reviews and remarks about her material. It’s always unique and up to date with the latest trends in the industry. Kim brings her “A” game every-single-time!
