Today’s Cash Flow Diary podcast guest Kim Ades is the president and founder of Frame of Mind Coaching and JournalEngine™ Software. If that’s not enough, she’s also an author, speaker, entrepreneur, coach and mother of five! Whew… that’s a plateful.
What else is Kim recognized for? She is one of North America’s foremost experts on performance through thought mastery. By using her unique process of integrating online journaling in her coaching, Kim helps her highly-driven clients to examine and shift their thinking in order to yield extraordinary results.
As anyone who knows me will attest, I love journaling! That’s what Kim tells us to do, too. It helps us transform our thoughts to actions to successes. What can be better than that?
Personally, I use journaling to help me think through things that are going on in my life, including business and deals. Of course, I add a layer to that part by doing video diary entries. If you’re a Cashflow Core Member you may have watched some of them. (If not, why not?)
If you think about it, my book is kinda like a big journal, so you know I love what Kim has to say in this introspective interview that shows you the path to entrepreneurialism is usually full of twists and turns.
Kim says she wasn’t always the outgoing entrepreneur you see today. She was once a very shy child who would sit at her bedroom window watching other children play. However, over time she got interested in earning money through her own efforts, so she offered different services and even started a balloon business. She developed her sales skills and she learned how to close more business than she ever thought possible.
Trying the corporate J-O-B path for a short time, Kim realized that wasn’t for her. She wanted to teach youth life skills. She would get up in the middle of the night to write her plan on the backs of napkins. She learned to ask people for what she wanted… including office space, which she got, BTW.
Kim also learned to network and build relationships. She didn’t let challenges or fears get in her way. Not even the lack of support for her ideas stopped her. Not bad for a once-shy child! Though I had never met Kim before this interview, I resonate with literally all that she shared with me.
