On today’s episode, I’m interviewing Kim David! We’re talking about making an impact through kindness, and the power of collaboration. She’s a mom, wife, team manager, and author. She’s the founder of Project Stella Resources, helping parents and educators find meaningful service opportunities in their communities, to grow their audience and business. Take some notes and ENJOY!!
- Kim says that the first thing she does with clients is figure out where they’re struggling. She really works at getting to the bottom of the issue, and discover their passion again.
- So many people want to do something great. Kim talked about how one thing she heard time and time again is kids wanting to do these grand things with their lives. Which is amazing- but a lot of times parents and educators don’t know how to lead those ideas down a path for success, and she felt very passionate about helping those people be better able to guide the kids.
- Kim says that her online component became so important because she was now able to reach an audience world wide, instead of just people in the community. That’s why she began with her journal workbook, and soon led to a course.
- She funnels people in from Pinterest, then gets them to her blog- she then has 2 freebies where people can pick which one best fits their needs.
- Kim talks about how COLLABORATION IS KEY. In doing this, she shares that you’re able to use the audience each person has.
- It’s hard to always be positive. There is power in finding a community of entrepreneurs that can help lift you up, collaborate with, and give you motivation that maybe friends or family with 9-5 jobs wouldn’t understand.
- “Your breakthrough is right on the other side of that wall that you’re up against!” It’s when you keep pushing through those tough moments, that will lead you to success. Don’t give up! You’ve got this!
