From her first bold statement that ‘intention is not enough–you have to show up and do the work!’, Kim Doyal lets us know that she is not your average marketer but is a soulful, savvy business woman. She weaves an encouraging story of how she looked at an area of great interest and passion (WordPress) and figured out how she could fit in. With so many people already working in that space was there really room for her? She wondered what she could do, how she could possibly show up and add value to others? Intense work with her own mentor and putting more of herself into her work, resulted in her business taking off and flourishing beyond her original expectations. She’s created a great quality of life, she loves what she does and it shows! Yes, it was scary, but she ‘baby-stepped’ into it. (She punched her way up to the throat, maybe starting at the ankles?)
Our conversation was bold, sassy, challenging and a blast! And it was almost two hours long, so I chopped it in half and made two podcast episodes out of our epic chat.
In this episode of the podcast, we discuss:
- How you can get confident enough to start being your authentic self
- What will happen when you really show up
- How she called me on my stuff, so that I would show up more
- How to begin to show up
- Why podcasting is so powerful, the beauty of audio
- Why women need to stop apologizing for running a business and earning money
- If you can be too specific in trying to target an audience
