    Fear Factor!

    Fear Factor!

    Kimberley is going solo today!
    She’s talking about fear. Specifically, the fear that she sees and hears about from her women entrepreneur clients.
    It’s universal.
    Kim explains that this phenomenon shows up everywhere. It doesn’t matter if you are doing a side-hustle, in start up mode, or in growth mode. Fear shows up, even when we know better.
    Who are you really afraid of judging you?
    The answer may surprise you. The people who care about us are often the ones we worry will judge us or not understand us. It often stops us from going all out.
    Kim explains her fear and how she addressed it.
    When it’s time for you to do the thing, and fear shows up, Kim has an exercise for you to do to help you understand what (or who) is truly stopping you. Then, you can take next steps to move beyond your fear.
    You don’t have to face this alone.

    Dream, Dream, Dream

    Dream, Dream, Dream

    Darren and Kimberley are in their home on the Sunshine Coast. After a short break recording, they are ready to jump back in.  

    Today’s episode about dreams and dreaming is typical Darren and Kim. Fun, enlightening and inspiring.  

    What’s your BIG dream?  

    Kim asks how do we test drive that? How do we go from dreaming the most amazing life to trying it on for real?  

    How do dreams go from fantasy to real life?   

    You’re going to love hearing how Darren realized his dream to have his pilot license. He shares why it felt out of reach for him for so long (it’s not what you’d expect) and what shifted to make it his reality.  

    Hear Kim’s method for making her dreams her reality.  

    When dreams start to come true, how does that impact life? You’ll be inspired when you see how things that feel out of reach might be much closer than you think.  

    What are you doing to make your dream a reality?  

    Do you need to go try it on? What’s stopping you from taking that next step?  

    Do you feel like dreams are for other people?  

    This episode (and the rest of this season) Kim and Darren want you to embrace dreaming. Together they will show you how to make those dreams feel tangible and attainable.  

    Your dreams are not for others, they are for YOU!

    That’s a wrap! Reflections from Season One

    That’s a wrap! Reflections from Season One

    Kimberley and Darren reflect on their first podcast season. They share their favorite parts of their podcast journey and a few of the things that were hard for them. To their credit, they both stepped out of their comfort zones and there’s no looking back now!
    They admit that it wasn’t always easy to get the recording done, but that didn’t stop them. They are definitely more comfortable now.
    Don’t miss the season 2 preview! They will be sharing their insights regarding business ownership and entrepreneurship. Additionally, mind-set around business growth is one of the things that they plan to discuss.
    They wrap up with info about their new condo in the Sunshine Coast area of BC. For Kimberley it’s going back home, but she admits that as the move (2 month stay, not forever) approaches she’s feeling some resistance.
    Follow their move journey on Instagram and after a short break they’ll be back with season 2!

    Q: How so you manage employees and/or teams?
    Darren shares how he did this as a business owner and how what he'd do differently now. Hear how he explains how the responsibility of employees made him feel – it’s probably not what you expect.

    Q: What three lessons have you come away with as life-long business owners /entrepreneurs?
    They share such helpful info here. They could have expanded this to an entire episode. If you own a business be sure to listen and take action on their practical and helpful advice.

    Succession Planning

    Succession Planning

    Today’s episode is about succession planning. People with a more traditional career have an expectation that the day will come to retire. Both employer and employee understand (in theory) how that works.
    When you own a generational business, you don’t retire. Succession planning is how Darren went from working for his dad, to being the boss, and now shifting ownership to the next generation.
    There’s so much good info here!
    Kimberley “interviews” Darren about how he planned to stop working full time and created his succession plan.
    Key Insights:
    How taking over from his dad worked out and what he’d do differently.

    Why succession planning should be done and a couple of things to watch out for.

    One of the things that made Kimberley nervous when Darren took a month away from the business.

    The big aha when Darren realized it was time to sell his shares to his partners – who are family members.

    Make decisions for yourself. Do what’s best for you instead of trying to figure out what other partners want or need.

    Get the scoop on the absolute best time to begin succession planning. (This will surprise you!)

    Ending a business is emotional too. Choosing how you want to step away is another big reason for succession planning.

    Hear how Darren “eased” into retirement. (No way you’ll guess this one!) Darren shares 5 key questions to help you create a plan. Identifying what’s meaningful to you moving forward will help business owners see other ways to contribute and even continue to earn and create wealth.
    Questions? If you’re ready to begin planning your exit, or if you’re the one waiting for someone to move on reach out to Kim and Darren via email or on Instagram.
