Kimberly is a serial entrepreneur who has owned and operated several companies in a number of industries, including but not limited to insurance, real estate, adventure, and business consulting. She started her first company, an insurance agency, at the age of 19 while still a sophomore at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas. After graduating with a B.A. in Psychology, she continued growing her agency while receiving numerous regional and national awards. While successful, she did not like where the insurance industry appeared to be going for agents and decided to sell her agency in December 2000. During the one-year transition period, Kimberly started her second company in real estate, which she still owns today.
With her real estate business thriving, Kimberly began looking for other possibilities when she began to notice an under-served market for small business owners. While there seemed to be plenty of guidance for mid-sized companies and up, small business owners were severely overlooked in this area. Kimberly saw an opportunity to use her business skills and began taking contract positions with small businesses in the following capacities:
- Business Plan/Model
- Goal setting/Objectives
- Leadership development
- Team building and employment collaboration
- Mergers & Acquisitions
- Income generation
- Infrastructure development
- Business Systems
- Strategic planning and execution
- Work environment
Kimberly had found her passion working with these business owners and often times helps them see things in their companies that they are too close to see themselves. She started to realize that while she was working with many different industries, the issues and challenges were very similar if not exactly the same. That is when she started to look at mastermind groups. The collaboration of like-minded individuals working towards common goal seemed so simple, yet so powerful. She researched the idea extensively then found her home with CEO Focus where she is determined to bring this concept to those business owners looking to take their companies to the next level, no matter their size.
Away from career and business, Kimberly is a wife, traveler, photographer, writer, sports enthusiast, volunteer and mother of two adorable fur babies. Most recently, in her spare time, she has been working on a project that is a lifelong dream and hopes to publish a book on the subject very soon.
