Kimberley [00:01:07] Thank you for having me. I’m so excited to be here.
Virginia [00:01:10] You’re welcome. I’m excited that you are here too. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Virginia [00:01:15] How do you start this little journey.
Kimberley [00:01:18] The Journey of entrepreneurship or the journey of…
Virginia [00:01:20] The journey that got you here today?
Kimberley [00:01:25] OK. Started out that I wanted to help people. And so I decided I wanted to be a doctor and I didn’t like blood. So optometry, there’s not too much blood in it. So I chose that one. And then when I was in school, I did a rotation in vision therapy clinic where we were helping children who are having difficulty in school because of their eyes. And I helped a little boy. And it was so amazing the changes that happened with him that I thought to myself, I can do this over and over and over again, help lots of people.
Kimberley [00:01:57] And so I got very excited about it and I actually specialized in it. It takes a lot of extra training above do it called behavioral optometry. And I had a therapy center in the therapy center. People would come in, they would have a problem or they would have a goal. And I would say, OK, let’s look at your physical emotional, let’s look at your eyes, your brain, the way you’re functioning and see where you’re at, where you want to go. OK, I write a program. We break down patterns that aren’t working well, create new patterns that are beneficial. So people get their goals or so they can get the healing that they want. So I love doing that because the one of the things that I saw happen with that, no matter what the problem or goal was when people came in, was that after going through the therapy and the program, they had more confidence.
Kimberley [00:02:51] They felt like they can do more things. They felt good about themselves. Their self-esteem would go up. And to me, that’s the key thing. If we don’t love ourselves. What else was there? We have to lower ourselves.
Kimberley [00:03:06] And so I really love doing that. And then after years of doing that, I decided I wanted to help people on a bigger scale, not just one on one. And so I started by writing a book. And then speaking in training. And then I started the podcast because, again, I wanted to touch more people. And now my podcast is Global across the world. I just love it. I love the guests coming on with all different perspectives. And I feel like I can inspire and encourage other people. And, you know, just have a voice for the positive and the good, specially with all this stuff going on right now. Just a positive thing for people to hear and listen to and be encouraged. And I have a lot of business people on there.
Kimberley [00:03:51] So I tend to give business techniques and things like that to help entrepreneurs or help them pivot during this time. So I feel like I’m being a help and an inspiration to people. And so I just love, love podcasting. And I think we discussed this already.
Kimberley [00:04:10] I’m going to do my first podcasting class in October. So if anyone else has a wonderful message, they need to get out and they want their voice to be heard. Then podcasting is the way to do it. And if you want to learn, I will show you step by step. So you will not mess up. You will get it. And you’ll be podcasting in eight weeks.
Virginia [00:04:31] That sounds very exciting. We’ll grab that info from you at the end.
Virginia [00:04:36] OK, awesome.
Virginia [00:04:39] It’ll be really fulfilling to be able to see the people in their transformation while you’re working with them. What are some of the most common mistakes that you see clients making?
Kimberley [00:04:56] I think one of the biggest mistakes that people make, if they’re actually going into podcasting, is that they quit too soon.
Kimberley [00:05:05] So podcasting is about being consistent. So you want to consistently publishing a certain number of episodes every week, whether it’s one or two or a bunch. You want to be consistent, too. This is for the long haul. Have you ever looked at a podcast and you watch the first five episodes and thought this was just so great?
Kimberley [00:05:29] You look at the last time that they had published one with two years ago and you’re receiving four more.
Kimberley [00:05:34] But there is none. So consistency and this is a long term relationship with your audience. You know, you start something, you’re giving them something. They expect that relationship to keep on going.
Kimberley [00:05:50] It takes a lot of dedication day in, day out to make sure that those are published all the time and a lot of people give up in that area.
Virginia [00:06:02] That’s true. So that’s on the screen. It reminds of like Dorry. Just keep going.
Kimberley [00:06:08] Just keep.
Kimberley [00:06:12] swimming just keep swimming.
Virginia [00:06:19] So who’s your ideal client for you?
Kimberley [00:06:24] My client is one of two people, and sometimes it’s the same person. Someone who has a message that they feel they want to get to the masses and they feel it so strongly that it’s just they got to get it out. They just got to. And then the second one. And it could be the same person, like I was saying, is a business person or someone with some kind of business.
Kimberley [00:06:52] Because who doesn’t want to be too expert in their field? And how do you become the go to expert? First of all, you educate people.
Kimberley [00:07:02] Second of all, you have to get out there and introduce yourself to people. So then they feel familiar with you. They have rapport with you. They say, oh, yeah, I know that person. People buy from who they like and trust. Well, if you’re out there giving content, content and content that is very valuable, that free content.
Kimberley [00:07:28] People are going and learn to know you. They’re going to trust you. And that is one of the best ways to get more clients and loyal clients. Know it’s OK to have someone come and buy one. Just great. The money comes in. It’s awesome. But if you have loyal clients, that means everything you put out, they’re going to buy it. That’s what you want. Consistency in the income coming into my two clients. If you do want to do this or have a voice.
Virginia [00:08:02] You want people that are always looking to buy more from you.
Virginia [00:08:05] What do you have?
Kimberley [00:08:10] I mean, think about Apple. People are waiting in line for the new thing to come out.
Kimberley [00:08:15] They are loyal.
Virginia [00:08:17] Is it hard to get the switch? So what is a big goal that you’re looking to achieve over the next one or two years? You did mention that you’re starting a podcast, a course on podcasting. Sorry. Do you have any bigger goals?
Kimberley [00:08:37] Yes. My biggest goal. So, like I said, my podcast is global.
Kimberley [00:08:42] But still, it’s not been disseminated large enough for me. So I want you know, if I went to visit France, I. I might run into somebody that actually heard my podcasts. You know, I want to make it international so that we’re coming together of people. The reason I like to interview people from United States or Canada as well as people from other places is because you can have the same topic. It can be a business topic. It can be a life topic, lifestyle, whatever. And you ask them from North America. They have a totally different thought process on the same thing. There’s someone from Europe does or someone from South Africa does or someone from Asia does. And it’s just so fun to see the differences in this distinct distinctions and to bring that to people so they can actually think. I think they think that these days, especially in the schools, we’re not teaching children to think there has to be different points of view. So you can look at each one and actually go through the process of thinking and reflecting and deciding what is true for you, what’s going to work for you. But if you always hear the same thing, it’s very constricting. So I like to hear different ideas and share different ideas and let other people hear those ideas.
Virginia [00:10:08] That’s pretty cool
Virginia [00:10:10] What we’ve got global recognition do for your business,.
Kimberley [00:10:16] I think just personally, it would give me more opportunities to connect with brilliant, amazing people. So I have several values, but one of them is I like to connect with people who are out of the box, thinkers who are brilliant, who are brainstorming and creating projects and making the world a better place. Making things better for everyone. So the more doors I have open to different people, they say we’re only white. Two degrees away from who we want to talk to.
Kimberley [00:10:53] Well, I’m bang on the door and the during the degrees because I just love connecting with people.
Kimberley [00:11:02] And I also. Because I’m a connector. I love connecting. People with other people who can help each other. So, I mean, just this week, I’ve connected several people to people who are filmmakers. I’m like, ya’ll need to know each other because this guy was teaching storytelling. This guy’s doing filmmaking. This other person was doing film making. But during filmmaking, you saw story storytelling. So I, I all three and I like all three of you guys, just all need to connect because maybe there’s a J.V. there joint venture. Maybe you can just learn from each other. So I love just.
Kimberley [00:11:36] Making things improve exponentially by bringing those people and things together. I just love putting things together and seeing wonderful things happen.
Virginia [00:11:48] You must love baking or cooking, put together and just enjoy the outcome.
Kimberley [00:11:55] I don’t do very much, but I am an art. You go doing art. I get lots of things together. There you go.
Virginia [00:12:06] Do you feel like there’s a roadblock that’s helping you being able to shorten that degree of between you and the other people?
Kimberley [00:12:20] I think the only roadblock is myself, and this is being very trans parents. You know, we all have our own personal blocks in blind spots.
Kimberley [00:12:31] I do have more than one coat of a business coach and a personal coach because I think we all have work in healing to do. And it’s those things from childhood where the child is running the show. We don’t know. The child is running the show, but the child is running the show. They’re saying that’s not safe.
Kimberley [00:12:54] I want to stop you right there. You’re not gonna get there because it’s not a safe place to go. So the internal thing that you’re you know, at least me, I’m not conscious of it, but I know it’s running there.
Kimberley [00:13:04] So you think it’s really important in anyone’s journey is to do the healing work? I don’t think anyone can be an effective leader. Or even there’s gonna be a point where you hit a wall in business if you’re not doing the internal work, the healing work and removing those blocks that you probably put there when you’re a little kid and they’re still there.
Kimberley [00:13:32] All of them probably always will be.
Virginia [00:13:37] You know what? It’s always good that we work on ourselves and improve ourselves, too. Right?
Kimberley [00:13:43] It sure is.
Kimberley [00:13:46] And it’s a wonderful journey. It’s a wonderful journey. You know, even the hard things I always tell people, your life is a sine wave.
Kimberley [00:13:56] You know, it goes up and goes down and goes up and goes down. And for me is as long as it doesn’t hit the ceiling or hit the basement, I’m OK. I don’t want my spine when I do it. But if I can just keep the sine wave kind of close to the line where it’s pretty even steady, where I’m filling the ups and feeling the downs with it, I’m still on an upward trajectory, then I’m going to be happy.
Kimberley [00:14:19] And I feel like pretty sad set now. Perfect. Give up being a perfectionist. Not perfect, but at least I’m going in the right direction.
Virginia [00:14:28] So I like it. What has been working for you to attract more of this?
Kimberley [00:14:41] One on one connections.
Kimberley [00:14:44] You know, so many people are going online. They’re doing these Facebook ads and.
Kimberley [00:14:51] Oh, these webinars is, and I think you need to do those, in fact, for the podcast course, I will be doing that with. But when it comes down to it, especially if you’re selling something that’s higher ticket. The one to one connection you need to connect with a person, get to know the person. Let that person know that you care about them. Find out what that person needs. And if you can provide what they need, then it’s your job to say, hey, I can provide this for you. Hey, this is a win win. I can help you with this.
Kimberley [00:15:28] And then to create trust, let’s say that what you have is now what they need is not what they’re looking for. If you can refer them to someone else who can fill that need. Believe me, when they need what you have or they know what you have, they’re going to send him to you because you’ve already built that trust. You can’t build that trust with the Facebook and you can’t build that trust with a webinar or this, you know, these things that just come on in the middle of your YouTube page or your music.
Kimberley [00:15:56] This guy.
Kimberley [00:15:57] Hey, do you know about Amazon?
Kimberley [00:16:01] And interrupted my music.
Kimberley [00:16:06] I mean, is that really a way to create rapport with people? No, you’re shocking them. You’re interrupting. You’re doing.
Kimberley [00:16:17] I don’t see it as a very viable way to do things. But one on one. It’s a little slower that way. But referrals are always stronger than just somebody off the street or somebody off the Internet. And that’s how I actually built my podcasting guest list. I started out with my warm market and I had a pretty large one anyways because of my entrepreneurial background. But whenever I finish a podcast with one of the guests, I’ll say now that you see what my format is.
Kimberley [00:16:52] Who do you think would be a great guest for this show? So first of all, nobody wants to recommend somebody that’s not good. So whoever they recommend, they’re always but I always take them as a yes. But they think about who they think would be their best person who would represent. They’re rarely representing them if they’re if they’re choosing to refer them. And so I get amazing guests that way. And let’s say this this new person that they just recommended, well, they’re even more known than that person. And, you know, they can open you up to another community in another community. So it’s really important.
Virginia [00:17:35] Yes, I totally agree. Like, your world market is great for referrals, and I love how you said that they’re out there always going to figure out who they send you and send you someone that. It’s good because they don’t want to look bad.
Kimberley [00:17:50] Yes.
Virginia [00:17:53] Do you only work off of referrals or how out do you kind of grow your connections and meet people one on one time times?
Kimberley [00:18:04] I’ll just go on Facebook and I will see just who is out there. So if someone has something very interesting, they’re doing like a look at their profile and like, oh, what a cool profession. I love that, I will connect with them and I’ll say, hey, I just want to connect with you. I saw you’re doing this really cool stuff and I wonder if I know about what you’re doing. And, you know, we’ll have a conversation either on the chat there on the messenger or sometimes we pick up the phone and talk. One of the guests I had on, he hasn’t been published yet, but it’s been recorded. We were we kind of a he actually connected with me. So he meant we must have some mutual friend connect with me.
Kimberley [00:18:45] I said thanks for the connection. I mean, this is on the message. They drew the connection. Tell me about you. Would you like to have a connection? Call these like. Yeah, I’d love to have a connection call. This is later in the evening. He was from California. And I’m in Georgia. And I’m like, well, I have been so busy this week. This is by the only time I have it. It was like 10, 30 at night. The only time I have to have a conversation. Ethan. Yes. So we call each other up. We talk on the phone or on the phone for an hour. And here’s this wonderful guy. He’s the psychic of California. He has clients from all over the world because he said everybody wants a psychic from California. He gets it from everywhere. But we just had a lovely conversation getting to know each other just on a personal basis, not even anything about business, just on a personal basis, saying, hey, who are you?
Kimberley [00:19:39] What’s important to you? What do you love doing? And I found some really cool things about him. And we had a wonderful conversation, in fact, that we need to talk again. So even though I’ve had him on the podcast, now there’s people that you actually create friendships with and you just like I want to keep in contact with that person. And you even spend more time with them. And, you know, some of those people who become your clients if you’re in business.
Kimberley [00:20:07] Did I answer your question?
Virginia [00:20:09] Yes, ma’am. You did. Thank you.
Virginia [00:20:14] Is there anything that you’re doing to kind of stand out on line?
Kimberley [00:20:21] Not that much. In fact, I I have been putting it off. I don’t know why. Maybe because I’m not sure who I’m looking for, but I know I need it. Hey, I need a virtual assistant because I am putting things out on Facebook. And I used to put them in all the different medias. And I’m like, this is exhausting. I’m too tired.
Kimberley [00:20:44] I do.
Kimberley [00:20:46] So I really needed you to help me with that. So. Not really. I’m just posting on Facebook.
Kimberley [00:20:53] And then my podcast, I am doing it audio. And then I started a YouTube channel. So I’m repurposing all the videos that I did. And they’re ending up on my YouTube channel.
Kimberley [00:21:04] And the cool thing about YouTube, I love doing the podcast, but I found that if I put this particular episode on my PI casting site and then.
Kimberley [00:21:16] Just starting three months ago, I started putting them on YouTube.
Kimberley [00:21:20] As soon as I put that same episode on YouTube, it gets twice as many views as it did as a podcast. I guess because people like to see the person, I don’t know exactly why, but I’m like, oh, I really need to keep doing this.
Virginia [00:21:36] So I was going to ask you that. So are you putting, like, the video of your conversation of the podcast, like you’re recording of a podcast, or is it just kind of like a still picture with a podcast overlay on it?
Kimberley [00:21:48] Oh, no. I do all my podcast and zoom in there, you know, with the person, unless they don’t want to be shown. You know, they I’ve had a couple of guests that they did not want their picture on there or they didn’t want there to be on the video for some reason.
Kimberley [00:22:06] And that’s OK. And so with them, I do have a still picture of just a picture of them in them talking. But, you know, most of them are the actual podcast. The way it was recorded on video COHA.
Virginia [00:22:23] what is the best advice that you have ever received?
Kimberley [00:22:28] I think one of my favorite ones, and I put this quote even on my Facebook profile. And it’s a quote by his executor. If you help enough people get what they want. You’ll always get what you want. And I truly believe that I love helping people. I love promoting and putting people up so other people can, you know, see them and promote them.
Kimberley [00:22:56] And and I know that there’ll be a day when that, you know, that good feeling they have from being taken care of and promoted.
Kimberley [00:23:07] Again, when they know somebody that needs what I have or how I can help them, they’re going to think of me as cool.
Virginia [00:23:15] I like that one. What’s the best advice you have ever given?
Kimberley [00:23:20] Well, it just keeps coming up. Is be yourself. But to be yourself, you have to know yourself and so know yourself so you can be yourself.
Virginia [00:23:35] I thought I had when you said that was when you were talking about doing, like, the inner work on yourself. All right. That’s a great way to get to know yourself better. And, you know, I like you for you, right? That’s cool. Thank you. Is there anything that you would like to say that I haven’t asked you?
Kimberley [00:23:55] Is my core mission in life is to. Help people to feel important. Cared for, loved. And I want every person to know that you were. Born with a special gift talent, something unique to you. That you were meant to share with the world. And when you share it, you feel fulfilled and you feel happy and you feel as and when you share. We all get the gift of what you have. And when you don’t find that gift or discover what it is or know what it is and don’t put it out, then we all lose. Still feel loved. Feel confident and share your self and your gifts with the world.
Virginia [00:24:55] Let your light so shine. Don’t hide it under a bushel. Yeah. Thank you so much for that great interview. How can people find out about you and what you feel?
Kimberley [00:25:09] Well, if they’re they would like to know about the podcasting course. I’m on Facebook a lot so they can message me on Facebook.
