    I started my interior design business in 2009. I was walking into the industry as it was making huge shifts, as well as trying to make an interior design business work in the least populated state in the union: Wyoming. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. I wasn’t even sure if it was possible. I boot-strapped and slowly made progress with the help of peers and friends. After four years, I realized I was running in circles, and my income still wasn’t where I hoped it would be. I was referred to Kim. She planted my feet, calmed my fears, and showed me how to break out of my small-minded thinking. Over the course of one year, we fleshed out my brand, making it authentic and congruent with my dreams. I secured my biggest design fee, had work featured in several reputable publications, and have future opportunities for income streams plotted out. Everything has expanded in the right way with Kim’s guidance.

    Working with Kim has been amazing. She has pulled me out of my comfort zone and has encouraged me to make decisions that at times were very scary, but paid off in the long run. Since we’ve started working together, I’ve moved out of my home office into a design studio, now have a staff of two, have found my ideal clients, and most amazingly, quadrupled (no joke!) my net income in one year. I’d be lying to say there weren’t tears, fears and growing pains, but I’d encourage any designer looking to grow their business and exposure to work with Kim and let her challenge them in ways they’ve never even dreamed of!

    Kim will kick your butt in all of the best ways. She pushed me out of my shell and called BS on all of my excuses. She packs her talks with information you can actually use. I can’t think of one designer that doesn’t need to be in this CEU. Get in there!

    I had an appointment with my accountant this evening and he said that he’s never seen such a huge percentage increase in income the whole time he’s been working for me (10 years). In fact, he said he works with a lot of small businesses and other people in my field and has never seen such a high level turn-around!

    Kim and I worked together on HGTV’s Kitchen & Bath. She’s always upbeat, gives clear direction and is a real pleasure to work with.

    I was attracted to Kim because of her experience as a producer and the results I saw her other clients achieving. Kim’s focus and no-nonsense attitude really helped me set actionable goals in many areas of my business including my ideal client, distribution, and working with the press.  Together we were able to generate a to-do list a mile long that Kim and I started working with during our sessions and even ticked off a big chunk while we were meeting.  I would highly recommend working with Kim for other bespoke product makers if you want to set your business up for success.

    On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to thank you for speaking at our general meeting. What a great talk you gave! Several designers I spoke to this week were implementing some of your suggestions and taking what you said to heart. Thank you!
