In this episode, Kimberly Brown breaks down coffee chats. We aren’t talking about those cute coffee dates at your local shop though. We are talking career coffee chats - the professional dates you’re having in your network to know a person better, engage them, and get the information you need to move your career forward.
So whether you’re listening or watching, get your coffee ready and lean in for Kimberly’s top 5 coffee chats to get you to the next level in your career!
“One of my pet peeves is when professionals reach out to me and be like, I don't even drink coffee. Y'all, I don't care if you are going to drink tea or get a bottle of water. You can sit there thirsty for all I care. The goal is to get on someone's calendar and get time to meet with them.”

I love the messages and positive energy of this podcast. I want to use the tips in my daily life. I listened to “Mixtape Confidence” episode and it was very insightful on how personal life and work are a balance that we need to focus on. Also , i love the reference to the movie “Girls Trip”. The actress Tiffany Haddish has a very inspiring story . Hopefully one day she will be a guest on the podcast
Kimberly’s content is billed as being for women and people of color. As a white male, I feel that her content is universally applicable. As a person that benefited from privilege I appreciate having access to this point of view. I feel that being able to get an understanding of these topics from her perspective helps me better approach these topics with my employees.I hope she keeps producing new episodes and publishing books.
Kimberly literally shares everything I only WISH I knew before working my way up the corporate ladder and transitioning into a job that I’d love (and one that paid me WELL). She touches on everything from pivoting in my career to salary negotiations - and what I appreciate most is that she speaks from a place of experience! She has RECEIPTS. I also love that the information is delivered in bite sized episodes - short enough for a quick listen, but long enough to make a lasting impact and providing actionable tips to implement. This podcast has my highest recommendation - especially for women of color looking to break through limiting beliefs, secure their dream position, and finally to get paid their worth.
Loving this podcast. The information Kimberly is sharing is invaluable! A must listen if you feel stuck, “lost”, or misguided in your career life. These are great takeaways that can even be applied outside of your work life to be honest. Looking forward to more.
